Retractable belt barriers on egress path

I've been looking in NFPA 1, 101 and 5000 for a reference to retractable belt barriers (such as Tensabarriers TM), but I have not found any.

Specifically I am wondering if there is a clear statement discouraging users from setting such belts across egress routes.

Are such belt barriers placed perpendicular to the egress direction for security reasons considered obstructions to egress or not?
