It’s a well-known fact that speed lanes can enhance the security and efficiency in commercial spaces where speed of access is key. Whether you’re managing an office building, a commercial facility, or a public space, speed lanes offer an elegant and effective solution to control access, and streamline people flow.
Let’s explore the many advantages of speed gates and why they should be a part of your access control infrastructure.

What are speed lanes?
Speed lanes, also known as speed gates or turnstiles, are sophisticated entrance solutions designed to regulate pedestrian access while maintaining a smooth flow of foot traffic. These sleek and space-saving devices are installed at entry points and use retractable barrier gates to control the movement of individuals. By employing advanced technology, and intelligent design, speed lanes provide secure, and efficient access control for various applications.
What are the benefits of speed gates?
1. Increased security measures
One of the primary advantages of speed lanes is the heightened security they offer. By restricting unauthorised access, these gates act as a physical barrier, preventing unauthorised individuals from entering restricted areas. With the ability to integrate with access control systems, speed gates provide an additional layer of security by verifying credentials, such as key cards or biometric data. This feature minimises the risk of unauthorised access and enhances overall security protocols.
2. Modern design feature
Speed gates are not only functional, but also aesthetically pleasing. Their sleek and elegant design allows them to seamlessly blend into any modern interior, making them an ideal choice for office buildings, corporate headquarters, and upscale establishments. Whether you opt for glass or plastic retracting panels, speed gates offer a contemporary and sophisticated appearance that complements the overall ambience of the space.
3. Easy to install
When it comes to implementing access control solutions, ease of installation is crucial. Speed lanes are designed with simplicity in mind, making them quick and hassle-free to install. With minimal disruption to your daily operations, you can have your access control system up and running in no time.
4. Integrate with access systems
Integration is key in today’s interconnected world. Speed gates are designed to seamlessly integrate with various access control systems, including key card readers, biometric scanners, and proximity sensors. This compatibility ensures a smooth and efficient operation, enabling you to leverage your existing security infrastructure.
5. DDA-compliant and wheelchair accessible
Accessibility is a critical consideration in any environment, and speed lanes excel in providing a DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) compliant solution. With passage widths of up to 900mm, EA Group’s Speed Lane turnstiles ensure that individuals with mobility challenges, including wheelchair users, can comfortably pass through the gates.
By offering a wider access point, speed lanes accommodate the needs of diverse users, promoting inclusivity and equal access for all. This DDA compliance not only meets legal requirements but also demonstrates a commitment to creating an accessible and inclusive environment.
6. Health & safety features
In addition to enhancing security, speed lanes prioritise safety. The gates are equipped with advanced sensors and safety mechanisms to prevent accidents and provide a controlled environment. For instance, the retractable barrier gates operate swiftly, opening and closing in just 0.8 seconds, allowing for a high traffic flow capacity while maintaining safety standards.
