Turnstiles

Mostly used in external environments Turnstiles provide a reliable and flexible tool for controlling pedestrians on a site

What are Turnstiles?

There are two main styles of turnstile – half height and full height.

Half height turnstiles are often waist high and provide a low security control of access. Half height turnstiles are usually used in staffed areas where they clearly show access is restricted to authorised users without being high security.

Full height turnstiles provide a physical barrier to access and in the right environment can control access and provide security without staff being present.  This range and flexibility of turnstiles makes them a common consideration in commercial and public environments particularly externally.

Examples of how Turnstiles can be used


Unrestricted

Placing the turnstile so that people will pass through a designated area. People can travel in both directions. Hands Free Access Control can be applied to monitor who is coming and going.

One way

Restricts the entry to only one-way traffic. This can be useful for local and site wide crowd control e.g. restricting flow in one area of a tube station so that people are forced to go to another part of the site thus reducing overcrowding and pressure in one particular area.

Restricted access

A token, coin or badge is required for entry e.g. paying for the use of a train.

What are the benefits of Turnstiles?

  • Speed – Turnstiles allow the efficient but controlled movement of pedestrians.
  • Crowd Control – They provide a simple and clear usage protocol for pedestrians to adhere to.
  • Flexible – They can be used for ceiling high enforcement or modest, smart and unobtrusive waist high entry control.
  • Intelligence – Simple intelligence such as the amount of through traffic and at what rate through a particular entrance or exit can be calculated.
  • Cost – Can reduce the cost of staffing an entrance or exit.
  • Integration – We can integrate turnstiles into existing third party access control systems.
  • Aesthetics – From a basic finish to a powder coat RAL finish to corporate colours there is flexibility in the aesthetic finish we can provide.
