What are Speed Lanes?

A Speed Lane is an elegant, efficient, and cost-effective Speed Gate entrance solution. They operate on the principle of glass or plastic panels working as barrier gates. The glass or plastic panels retract into the turnstile body after an authorised signal. 

Designed for high-traffic areas, such as airports or sports stadiums, they add an additional layer of security for many venues and improve the flow of people into a building or space.

A Speed Lane entrance allows for a faster flow of people compared to a regular entranceway. They are available in different passage widths, a variety of surface finishes and are designed to be robust and reliable. A Speed Lane can be equipped with technology like Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) or biometric authentication to speed up the process of identifying and allowing authorized individuals through.

EA are experts in providing Speed Lanes to businesses across all sectors. We have a wide selection of options to suit different needs. As the experts, we thought we’d share how speed lanes can maximise security and efficiency in a venue.

Key features of Speed Lanes

Let’s take a look at the key features of Speed Lanes.

High-speed operation – Speed Lane turnstiles are designed to operate quickly, allowing for fast and efficient movement of personnel through the security checkpoint.

Controlled access- Speed Lane turnstiles are equipped with access control measures, such as card readers or biometric authentication devices, to verify someone’s identity before allowing them entry. 

Integration with security systems- Speed Lanes can be integrated with other security systems, such as security cameras and alarms to provide a comprehensive security solution.

Durable materials- They are typically built with durable materials and designed to withstand high levels of use, ensuring reliability and longevity.

Ease of use- Speed Lane turnstiles have intuitive controls and simple operations which require minimal training.

Aesthetic design – They are designed to fit into any modern interior.

The benefits of Speed Lanes 

Now let’s look at the main benefits Speed Lanes provide.

Increased efficiency- Allowing for a faster flow of people, speed lanes reduce the time and effort required to enter or exit a building. Events with large crowds in attendance can be assured that congestion is kept to a minimum and crowds move into a space safely and efficiently.

Enhanced security- Being equipped with technology such as RFID or biometric authentication, provides controlled access to restricted areas, giving businesses an extra layer of security. The retraction of the barriers can also be programmed to work in reverse, with the panels only coming out to block the lane if the signal is unauthorised.

Improved customer experience – Making the process of entering or exiting a building faster and more convenient, goes towards improving a visitor’s overall experience of your venue or business.  It sets a professional image and can help with customer satisfaction.

Reduced costs- Reducing the time and effort required to enter or exit a building can help minimise impact to staff productivity, allowing people to get where they need to be, quickly.  Additionally, using a speed turnstile gate eliminates the need for staff to check identification manually.

Increased revenue – Improving efficiency and customer experience can lead to increased foot traffic, which can lead to increased revenue for businesses.

Speed Lanes and security

Speed lane turnstiles provide excellent security for businesses where crowd control is essential, such as:

  • Stadiums and arenas
  • Amusement parks
  • Public transportation hubs
  • Airports and train stations
  • Event venues
  • Shopping centres
  • Museums and galleries
  • Hospitals and medical centres

These businesses benefit from Speed Lane turnstiles as they allow for quick and efficient entry and exit of large numbers of people. Depending on the venue and security requirements, Speed Lane turnstile gate heights can be customised, and turnstiles can be widened. EA can advise venues on the most suitable options for them.

How to maximise the efficiency and security of your Speed Lanes

To maximise the efficiency and security of your Speed Lanes, there are some steps you can follow.

To ensure traffic flow is properly managed and doesn’t cause congestion, we recommend training staff on the use of technology and procedures to support any usage issues that arise. Congestion issues will be minimised if staff understand how to help people with authentication issues.

It’s important to monitor activity on the Speed Lanes to stop security breaches or fraudulent activities. This is particularly important at event venues or high-security premises.

Regularly maintaining the equipment and systems will help to ensure that they are functioning correctly and increase the longevity of the product. By maintaining the equipment and evaluating its performance, changes can be made as necessary to keep them working efficiently.

EA Group are experts in providing secure entrance solutions. Get in touch with one of the team to find out how we can help your business.

Customers visit the leisure sector to unwind after a long day or to train and work on themselves. It goes without saying that businesses here need to make sure that their buildings are as secure and comfortable as possible for customers and staff alike. This of course involves investing in the right equipment, but you should also look at the services that support each site itself. This includes your doors, security services, access control and building management systems.

At EA Group we’re specialists in all of the above! We provide modern solutions that allow guests and staff to enter your site securely and easily, and ensure that their stay is comfortable and safe. We do this by providing a range of technology that integrate with your existing services and each other to create one complete solution.

In today’s blog we’ll take a closer look at these services, and recommend solutions that could be right for your business.

Revolving doors: Dazzle your guests

Revolving doors are arguably the most visually impressive entrances available to most UK businesses today. Their all-glass appearance means they look great inside and out. They allow more light to enter your building and support the flow of people both in and out of your site.

We know that for gyms and leisure centres especially, air conditioning is incredibly important. Revolving doors can be a great help here. As during their operation at least two wings of the door are touching the wall, technically no conditioned air is allowed to escape the site. Similarly, outside air is not allowed in. This prevents drafts, saves on your bills and keeps guests and staff comfortable.

Speed lanes and turnstiles: add security and protect revenue

The purpose of all great security services is to keep unauthorised people out, while keeping your guests safe. This sounds simple but it has to be done in a way that’s efficient and unobstructive to everyone involved. Many leisure businesses have a staffed presence but for those looking for added efficiency, look no further than speed gates.

Speed gates are the evolution of traditional turnstiles you’re used to seeing around stadiums and events. They are usually made of glass and integrate with a variety of access control services. This is perfect if your business uses ID cards, tokens or other forms of ID.

Our speed gates use automatic sensors to detect when their intended user has passed through them, and then closes before any tailgaters can follow. You can heavily customise your speed gates to suit your needs. This includes choosing between waist-high or full-height turnstiles for added security or changing the method of access control.

CCTV: Protect your site

Keeping your site secure has to be a priority. Especially when your customers are likely to be leaving their personal belongings on-site. Having a staffed security presence is a great way to deter potential thieves, as are the entry solutions we mentioned previously. Combining these with CCTV gives you an extra layer of protection.

CCTV has come a long way since the grainy camera displays we were used to in the early 2000s. Modern cameras have far greater range of motion, covering all corners of your site. Their displays can be customised to include colour footage, or even to capture footage during low-light conditions.

Monitoring your cameras is also much simpler. Instead of having to view cameras through a dedicated control room, you can now access footage remotely from a device of your choice. This allows for some genuine peace of mind.

Access control: ClubManager integration and more

We know that your gym or leisure facility likely has its own software for bookings and membership. We’re pleased to say that our turnstiles, speed gates and other entry solutions all integrate seamlessly alongside them.

This includes ClubManager, the service we’re asked about most often. ClubManager features booking and attendance management services operated via an app or kiosk. With the help of open APIs, businesses can use ClubManager with other business systems such as accounting and customer relationship management.

Integrating a booking and membership system like ClubManager with your access control adds an extra layer of security and convenience for your guests. Using this service you can allow easy access for your members and their guests, while blocking unauthorised access. You can track attendance, which can be vital in the case of an emergency and also track usage which can be relevant when renewing memberships.

Overall introducing a well-designed access control system to your gym or leisure centre allows you to create an exclusive image and keeps your members safe.

Businesses and organisations of all kinds have recently had to consider the way guests move around their premises much more carefully. Reducing congestion and improving safety are new priorities, alongside security and ease of movement. No matter the scale of your organisation, we know that dedicating personnel to your entrances just isn’t feasible. At EA Group we’re looking at new ways to improve the flow of pedestrian traffic, with or without a manned element.

Speed gates can be the solution for you. Whether you are looking to add an extra layer of security to an entrance, or track attendance around different sections of your site, their appearance and versatility make them an ideal solution. In this blog we’ll explain how strategically placed speed gates can drastically improve the flow of pedestrian traffic around your site.

Improve security without increasing congestion

We know that making your premise into a more secure environment has benefits for both you and your guests. Not only does it protect your site from unwanted intruders, but a visually secure environment makes guests feel more at ease. Many security features and access control services can service to slow down entry if not implemented properly though.

Speed gates are an exception. The clue really is in the name here, and speed gates are designed to allow incredibly efficient access while still improving security. This is partly due to their design and ability to open and close in 0.8 seconds, and partly due to their ability to integrate with a wide variety of access control systems. Our EA speed lanes allow you to improve people-flow at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.

Your speed gates can work alongside the access control measures you already use or can be equipped with new ones. These include swipe cards, access tokens or even biometrics. These can be customised with your branding and can be tailored to only open certain speed gates around your premise, allowing you increase security in important areas.

Keep track of your staff and guests

In many environments, such as in schools or certain industries like manufacturing or logistics, it’s crucial that you know where guests and staff for record logs or in case of emergency. Your speed gates, combined with access control services, can make this process easy. Using access control integration, your speed gate will immediately log which person has entered through it on your database. For schools, this is a great way to monitor attendance, while in offices you can use this feature as a way to clock in or out.

Alongside tracking attendance more quickly, speed gates also serve to make the process more secure. We can offer full height speed gates that cannot be hurdled, as well as tailgating sensors that stop unauthorised access behind others.

Improve access for all people

People with mobility aids need to be accommodated for around your site, without sacrificing security or pedestrian flow. Speed gates are an ideal solution here as well. Alongside our speed gates, we can install extra wide models or glass swing gates that are ideal for wheelchairs or other mobility aids. These swing lanes are still compatible with all our access control features and are ideal for creating a more pleasant welcome for any guest.

At EA Group we can tailor your speed gates to meet the needs of your site. We know that in some entranceways such as in gyms or offices, space may be at a premium. We can customise our gates to ensure that they remain efficient and accessible while still fitting within the aesthetic vision of your site.

Work alongside your existing operation

You might already have a security presence at your entrance, even ones with existing entry solutions like tripod turnstiles. Speed gates can enhance this process by speeding up the flow of pedestrians. If you wish to have a manned presence monitoring your speed gates, then they can be customised to include a control desk and can be operated using buttons on this desk. This allows you to maintain a great level of security, while massively reducing congestion at your entrance.

Combining these fast-operating gates with security personnel allows you to guide visitors smoothly throughout your site. This reduces crowds and creates a safer and more welcoming entrance for any guests or staff. This is especially useful in public spaces such as medical centres, stations, airports and larger commercial spaces.

At EA Group we can provision speed gates, made in the UK and install them bespoke for your business. Provisioning our products from the UK means that our maintenance and installation processes are incredibly efficient. There’s no worry about missing parts or shipping costs.

Speed gates are a form of turnstile designed to allow users to enter faster than traditional turnstiles or swing gates. They integrate with access control services and their response speed is generally much faster than other gates.

Compared to the traditional tripod turnstiles that you’re probably used to seeing at stations and stadiums, speed gates are new technology. They’ve recently risen in popularity and are set to be the number-one entry solution for years to come. Many commercial buildings, schools, healthcare facilities, transportation hubs and offices have already adopted speed gates.

As providers of entry solutions and security systems, we’ve noticed a trend of businesses who ask us for an older entry service but change their mind once they understand the benefits that speed gates can provide. That’s why we’ve written this blog today, to help you and your team to understand the benefits these gates can bring to your business.


The first difference you’ll notice when you compare speed gates to traditional turnstiles is their appearance. Our speed gates, from Swing Lanes to Speed Lanes, all feature a contemporary and modern finish, featuring glass gates and metal frames. We also offer a choice of finishes to suit your entranceway.

Speed gates offer more flexibility for businesses when it comes to customisation. At EA Group, we can carry out a survey of your site to ensure that the gate we provide properly meets all your requirements. You can choose from a range of models that differ in speed, appearance and width. We know in many reception areas in schools, business centres and healthcare facilities, space is at a premium. That’s where these bespoke gates shine, as they are able to be tailored to fit any space, whether you need three lanes for a gym, or over a dozen at an airport.


The primary purpose of any entry point is to maintain the security of your premise. Speed gates provide a variety of great ways to keep your building secure, without sacrificing ease of entry. Our speed gates feature a 0.8 open/close time. This speed is not only great at guaranteeing unimpeded access for authorised people, but also prevents tailgating.

Our speed gates also include sensors that can detect whether one person is entering at a time as they should, or whether others are piggybacking through with them. This can then send an alert to any on-site security personnel or reception staff. Security features like this make speed gates such a popular choice when it comes to creating a safe unmanned entrance.

We also offer taller EA Slide Gates that prevent unauthorised entrants from hurdling over them.


One of the greatest innovations that speed gates bring is their integration with a variety of access control services. Our speed gates here at EA have the ability to embed most manufacturers’ access control readers beneath the top glass cover. This means you can use ID cards, QR codes, or even biometrics to enter your premises.

These integrations are ideal for a number of industries. For schools, where it is crucial to keep a clear record of attendance, your speed gate’s access control service can link to your IT system to show exactly who is where. For areas where security is paramount, such as in secure areas of commercial spaces, biometrics can be used.


As much as it’s important to increase the security and appearance of your building’s entrance, it is just as crucial to ensure that every person can enter in a safe and efficient way. That’s why our speed gates come equipped with a variety of accessibility features.

As part of our initial survey process, we ensure that anything we provide for your site falls within accessibility guidelines. To ensure that people with wheelchairs and other mobility aids can still enter efficiently we offer wider EA Swing Gates that still offer the same great appearance and integrations.


One of the main reasons for the popularity of speed gates is how they can be tailored to work effectively in a variety of situations. Their modern appearance and integration with access control is part of it, but they also have other useful features available.

In the case of emergency, speed gates can easily be configured to open manually, or lock into an open position to allow a far quicker flow of traffic. The ability to manually open or close gates can also be controlled by a button operated by security personnel, to create a manned entry solution.

In summary, speed gates have soared in popularity because they do exactly what they say on the box. They allow for a quick entrance, while keeping your business secure. There are no long queues and accessibility is prioritised. If you’re interested in accessing speed gates yourself, why not get in touch with EA Group?

When a commercial property has a foyer or reception area, lots of businesses will take additional steps to ensure that they’re protecting not only their property, but also their employees and any authorised visitors.

If you’re interested in upgrading your security and you’d like to learn more about the best automated security solutions for this particular area in your commercial property, below we have looked into them in more detail.



This traditional entrance solution is a common sight in reception areas and turnstiles are known for offering a reliable method to control foot traffic and ensure only authorised users access specific areas of a commercial property. They also force pedestrians to enter single-file, enabling security personnel or CCTV cameras to have a clear view of those passing through.


Many will incorporate access control systems into the design of their reception turnstiles, enabling authorised employees to easily move through this area, preventing any inconvenience to reception staff. This system can use card readers, barcode scanners or biometrics, for example, making entering and exiting incredibly straightforward.


Speed lanes

Speed lanes and speed gates are considered to be an elegant alternative to turnstiles. Their modern design makes them much more aesthetically pleasing and they are perfect for reception areas, ensuring the best first impression is provided. Reception speed lanes tend to be a space-saving solution too, yet they still have a high pedestrian traffic flow capacity.


Similarly to turnstiles, this solution can be designed to incorporate access control systems, providing effective security against unauthorised access. Reception speed lanes feature panels that retract into the body upon an authorised signal and they can be opened/closed in as little as 0.8 seconds, making them suitable for busy reception areas.


CCTV systems

Lots of businesses will use CCTV systems throughout their commercial property and having CCTV cameras in the reception area is often essential. These cameras play a key role in monitoring security in this vulnerable area and they will provide around the clock surveillance, enabling businesses to ‘keep an eye’ on all pedestrians entering their property.


Using a combination of CCTV cameras, such as; HD cameras, infrared cameras, PTZ cameras, day and night cameras, and even dummy cameras, businesses can easily design a reception CCTV system that meets all of their needs. The modern housing of these cameras and the discreet colours available enables them to blend into their surroundings too.


Intercom systems

To provide ultimate security to their reception area, some businesses will use intercom systems. These will prevent any pedestrians from being able to access the reception area without authorisation and intercom systems are often incorporated into other entrance solutions, like automatic sliding doors and automatic revolving doors.


It isn’t uncommon for intercom systems to also feature keypads or other access control readers, enabling employees to enter the reception area without needing to be granted access by reception staff. With both wired and wireless intercom systems available too, there is a convenient solution for all commercial properties, no matter what the interior design is like.

The vast majority of big commercial properties, from offices to leisure centres, will use some form of access control security system at their entrance. There are a number of benefits to these systems and they are incredibly effective in slowing the flow of foot traffic and preventing unauthorised access in any property.

If you’re interested in installing speed gates at your property, you now have a selection of different designs to choose from and to help you do so, below is some more information about them.


Classic speed gate

This is what most people picture when they think of a speed gate and they feature glass or plastic panels that retract into the turnstile body upon an authorised signal, you may commonly hear these referred to as speed lanes too. These gates can also be programmed to operate in reverse, so they only extend the panels out to block the lane when required.


These classic speed gates are only waist height and they are fairly compact in design. On average, they can allow up to 30 authorised people to enter in a minute and they provide a high traffic flow capacity without risking the safety of the users. With wide speed gates available too, if you need a DDA compliant solution, they are a brilliant option.


Swing speed gate

As the name suggests, swing speed gates operate on the swing open principle and they feature two panels that meet in the centre when they are closed. Whilst they are commonly seen with waist height panels, they can also feature high glass panels which can be up to 1800 mm from the floor level, making them perfect when a higher degree of security is required.


They are very modern in design and tend to feature glass side panels too, and they are also available in both wider lanes and slim profile designs as well. All of the swing speed gate options can be controlled in either manual modes or automatic modes, whereby an access control system is used.


Slide speed gate

Again, this speed gate is aptly named and two glass panels slide apart to allow entry to authorised visitors. This gate can be supplied up to 1540 mm high, so it will effectively reduce the risk of people hurdling over them. Due to this, they are another design that is commonly used in areas where a higher level of security is required.


Slide speed gates also feature a short opening and closing time, and this tends to be around just 0.8 seconds, which makes them perfect for any areas that also experience very high levels of foot traffic. Like all of the other speed gates above, they can be controlled manually or by an access control system too.


Wide swing gate

This type of speed gate is specifically designed as a simple access control barrier where wider accessibility is needed, whether this is disabled access and delivery routes. A swing gate is just as modern and sleek as any other type of speed gate, but it is much more simplistic and is simply one swinging glass gate.


They are available in width sizes from 500 mm to 900 mm and can be controlled in either manual or automatic mode. It isn’t uncommon for these swing gates to be used alongside one of the other options mentioned above.

Speed lane

Similarly to a slide lane, a speed lane is designed whereby glass or plastic panels retract into the body of this entrance control solution, however, it is more ergonomically designed and very aesthetically pleasing.

All tripod turnstile designs incorporate simplicity with impressive functionality and they always provide high traffic flow.


Glass pass

This entrance access solution is suitable for premises where higher security is required and tailgating needs to be prevented.
