What Are Turnstiles?
Turnstiles use revolving arms to control pedestrian access, allowing only one person at a time to pass through. They are commonly used in the reception area of commercial buildings, car parks, government and council facilities, stadiums, stations, schools and leisure facilities.
Turnstiles are a cost-effective way of restricting access to your facility and can be fully automated using card readers, biometric readers, keypads or remote intercom. In addition, turnstiles can be operated via ticket or coin insertion.
Benefits of Turnstiles

Easy to Install
Turnstiles are more compact than other access solutions, which means they can be installed in tighter areas which might not be able to accommodate a gate. In addition, multiple units can be installed in a stacking formation covering a larger area in places of high pedestrian traffic.

With automated turnstiles, you can control who has access to your building in real time. This allows authorised personnel quick and easy access, with no need for security staff to perform additional checks
