Who We Are

When it comes to controlling your site, security begins with Controlled Access.

Controlled Access, Inc. is a family-owned turnstile company with one goal – to provide the most durable and reliable turnstiles available. For more than 30 years, we have manufactured a full-line of turnstiles and ADA gates at our ISO 9001:2015 certified facility in Brunswick, Ohio. Our global customers are stadiums, arenas, factories, schools, office buildings, government sites, embassies, amusement parks, and any other location that requires pedestrian access control.

Proudly Built in the USA

We make our turnstiles in Ohio, from steel and aluminum from the mill, we don’t assemble foreign parts – we are a working factory. We take pride in manufacturing here in the US and are now expanding our capacity to meet the ever-growing need for access control. Currently we’re building a new manufacturing facility just blocks from our current site – this is our second expansion in five years. Two and a half times larger, our new modern turnstile factory will enable us to manufacture and ship turnstiles even faster, while we continue to adhere to the strict requirements of ISO certification.

We Treat our Customers as Partners

Our goal is to partner with our customers, so they get the solution they need to solve their project at realistic prices. We make sure you know your options when selecting your turnstiles and do our best to educate you about things that are sometimes not considered – like the true pass-through rates of people passing through a turnstile array, ADA considerations, why you should research your local code requirements with respect to emergency exiting and much more.

Providing Custom Solutions

When you select one of our products, you are not buying a SKU. You are finding the right solution to your specific issue. You can rest assured we will be with you from product selection to answering any installation questions and down the road for your next project. That is our commitment – long term service from our products and our staff. That is why we’ve become America’s most relied on choice in pedestrian access control. That is our family’s way of doing business.
