EA Swing Lane Speed Gate

Sweeper Fast Lane Turnstiles

The EA Swing Lane speed gate is a contemporary waist-high design that operates on the swing open principle and combines 3 important pedestrian turnstile features

  • high safety
  • high traffic flow capacity – 30 persons per minute.
  • stylish modern appearance: glass blades and side panels produce the impression of transparency effect

Our Swing Lane speed gate turnstile model is available in the following variants;

Swing Lane Speed Gate  Standard – Our most popular model in a standard 550mm lane width.

Swing Lane Speed Gate 900 – The ideal turnstile solution where wide lanes are required, for example wheelchair access.

Swing Lane Speed Gate S – For the aesthetic appeal or to accommodate additional space, the Swing Lane S model is our slim body turnstile.

Swing Lane Speed Gate HG – To increase your security level but keeping an aesthetic appeal, the Swing Lane High Glass (HG) model prevents people hurdling over as they can with standard height turnstiles.

All of the EA Swing Lane speed gate turnstile range can be controlled in either manual or automatic modes.


  • In the manual mode, the glass panels are opened/closed according to the command from a control panel often positioned at a reception desk or a remote position.
  • In the automatic mode, the glass panels are opened/closed determined by the signal from an access control system such as a proximity ID card, key fob, biometric reader etc.

The Swing Lane speed gate can operate in two ways: either normally closed or normally open.

  • Normally Closed – The most common way of configuration, the glass panels are always in the closed position, and only open when the signal to do so is given by the access control.
  • Normally Open – The glass panels are always in the open position, and only close when a person is detected entering the turnstile that has not presented an acceptable form of ID to the access control.

Both access directions either in or out are free to swing open when the turnstile is powered down. (battery backup options are also available)

The EA Swing Lane speed gate turnstile can enable access in either one or two directions making it versatile and suitable for installation in offices, banks, sports facilities, shops, or anywhere that has a need for access control at the point of egress.

The EA Swing Lane speed gate as standard is designed using the combination of stainless steel and glass to give a light and airy aesthetic feel to any modern interior, however this speed gate design also lends itself to be finished with custom detailing to match a specific architectural design of a building,  such as some of those shown in the images below. Perhaps it is the versatility of the Swing Lane speed gate that makes it a popular choice of architects and specifiers alike to incorporate into their latest building designs.
