Turnstiles

TURNSTILES

A turnstile is a mechanical gate that can be powered or not as the case may be. Revolving horizontal arms are fixed to a vertical pole and employ ratcheting mechanisms that will only move in one direction. This restricts passage to one person at a time and in one direction.

With vast experience in the industry, we are proud holders of the Secured By Design Certificate. This certifies us to supply over 60 SBD Security Rated fencing and gate systems. Our portfolio includes a range of security fencing and gating installations for the NHS, Local Authorities and all types of private, commercial and industrial businesses.

We are happy to take on any size job and work alongside you from an initial complimentary consultation and site survey right through to submitting design proposals and subsequent manufacture and installation.

USES FOR TURNSTILES

With advances in technology, modern automated turnstiles are a far cry from those old mechanical versions that you used to pass through to go and watch the match. Many of them now incorporate complex and fully-featured access control systems utilising micro-processors and the very latest technological advances.

Turnstiles are a high-security item, employed to make sure premises are safe and secure and entrance or access is controlled and monitored. They allow venues to check, search and question people wishing to gain entry, control direction of travel and enable isolation of potential trouble spots.

More benignly, turnstiles can be used as a great tool for collecting data. Where people are going and in what sort of numbers. They can also speed up or even slow down processes by allowing a consistent flow of footfall at a controlled rate.

Venues that use ticketing or payment for access often make use of turnstiles. They can be automated with access control systems or monitored and operated by personnel.

 

BENEFITS OF TURNSTILES

CONSTANT SECURITY

Many sectors across the country have started to invest more in automated physical security systems. In some cases, security has become completely autonomous made possible by micro-processed programmable access control functions and the very latest in ID verification technology. Unlike a security guard, a turnstile can work efficiently and effectively 24 hours a day.

Turnstiles can also act as an effective visual deterrent by halting someone considering attempting to gain unauthorised access in their tracks.

DATA COLLECTION

There are a whole host of reasons why organisations, venues, travel hubs and others might want to collect data from their turnstiles. Admission counting helps identify peak travel times, peak visiting times, total admission fees collected or indeed when installed on an exit, how many people leave a venue and how long they have spent there.

RETURN ON INVESTMENT

Autonomous turnstile systems inevitably lead to a reduced requirement for staffing and as a result, reductions in staffing costs. For venues that charge for entrance, decreases in unauthorised and unpaid access mean that revenues truly reflect the level of use without profits taking a hit from people sneaking in. They also make it impossible for internal theft from staff misconduct to occur.

The robust construction and yet reasonably simple mechanical operation of turnstiles mean that they operate reliably in all types of climates and in all conditions. Ongoing repair and maintenance costs are minimal.
