You know you need to control people at your facility. So, how do you know what type of turnstile to select?
Controlled Access offers four sizes of full height security turnstiles (single rotor) and two sizes of dual rotor or tandem units. So, what's the difference between them?
You need a turnstile, and have made the key decision on whether it's going to be a waist high or full height security turnstile. Now it's time to consider the next question: What material do you need?
Unlike some of our competitors who want you to use factory-trained installers, we've designed our turnstiles and ADA gates so any competent pro could put them in, saving you from needless downtime and unnecessary costs.
After 30-plus years of security access control projects, we've learned one very BIG thing from warehouses and factories: Workers in factories tend to carry lunchboxes, backpacks and have a greater number of larger people than other controlled access environments.
ADA access control presents unique challenges, but both ADA waist high turnstile gates and full height security gates provide wide passage areas for patrons. Additional measures should also be considered to increase effectiveness.
Waist High Turnstiles Are For Honest People – And Require The Right Pedestrian Access Control SolutionWaist High Turnstiles
Waist high turnstiles are vulnerable to being crawled under or jumped over, but they're effective pedestrian access control tools when used in the right situation.
The reason why turnstiles are the best tool to control who's coming in and out of your facility is that regular doors can be held open, allowing passage of numbers of people. That's why we ask clients what their plan is for monitoring access points where ADA gates are being placed.
Many customers ask if our turnstiles/turnstile gates will work with their access control system. Our general answer is yes, it normally should, especially if you are using that system to already unlock doors on site with personal ID cards.
