The word turnstile is the generic industry term. However depending on how we perceive or use them, they are also referred to as other names. Similarly names such as; pedestrian barriers, security lanes, reception gates, reception barriers, access control barriers and automatic pedestrian gates.
Generally they are simple mechanical barrier devices, that include a rotor or tripod of arms that within a rotational turn principal, allow a pedestrian to pass through.
For that reason turnstiles should not be confused with higher-end Speed Gates or Speed Lanes. Due to demand and continued market development, Speed Gates are now accepted as a different type of access control product.
Although they also securely manage people flow, Speed Gates are designed with enhanced aesthetics with quieter and smoother mechanical principals.
Access Control Using Turnstiles
We accept the principal, that among other things, technology controls the access and security of our daily lives and this includes the use of access controlled barriers. We find them within our place of work, where we socialise, where we exercise and even the transport hubs that we use to connect them all.
In short, pedestrians are used to being managed and guided from where they have been, to where they intend to go.
Turnstiles offer a reliable method to control visitors and ensure only authorised users are allowed access to particular areas of a building.
In short, we have a solution that can work in virtually all spaces.
We are leaders in autonomous pedestrian control. EA Group offer entrance solutions from simple mechanical rotary barriers to fully integrated systems.
Advantages Of Choosing Turnstiles
Certainly we offer a comprehensive range of access control entrance solutions that encompasses the needs of most applications.
We supply and install and maintain simple waist height glass gates and tripod drop arm barrier models. In addition we also supply full height products where a higher level of security is required.
EA Tripod and Rotary turnstiles are frequently used as pedestrian control barriers within building entrances and foyers. As an example; sports facilities, schools, colleges and libraries often use our products. As to do many other facilities that require managed pedestrian traffic flow.
Generally used with access control systems. Autonomous barrier forms of pedestrian control measures ensure a more accurate, verifiable count of attendance. From a security standpoint, they lead patrons to enter single-file. Therefore security personnel or CCTV cameras have a clear view of each person passing through.
Furthermore, our entire range are designed to be controlled using all common forms of access control. In particular, proximity or swipe card, barcode scanners, bio-metrics, coin, token and tickets.
All of our access control entrance solutions are designed to be integrated to fire alarm panels. Once the alarm is activated, they will retract and disable the barrier arms to allow free, unrestricted emergency egress.
Furthermore, in a power cut situation. The barriers can be configured that when the power is lost, they fail safe and open for a potential evacuation.
