Controlled Access Turnstiles: Which Type is Best for Each Area of Your Building?
There is a variety of security turnstiles available, and while this variety is good, it can be overwhelming. Because each entrance type has different capabilities, it is critical that security professionals select the right type of turnstile entry system for each area of their building. Below is a quick breakdown of the capabilities of each type of turnstile and ideal applications.
Tripod, or waist-high, security turnstiles are a crowd control solution that manage the flow of people in and out of designated areas. They deter tailgating, but won't stop the determined intruder from crawling under or jumping over when no one is looking. Guard supervision is needed at all times.
Full Height Turnstiles
Full height turnstiles provide a higher level of security than a tripod turnstile because they can't be crawled under or jumped over. However, they can still be defeated, and do not have sensors to alert guard staff of such an attempt.
Sleek and elegant, optical turnstiles use sophisticated sensor technology to detect the passage of a user. Any attempt to bypass the turnstile will be detected and an alarm will sound to alert nearby guard staff. Since they can be defeated, guard supervision is necessary at all times.
Security Revolving Doors and Portals (Turnstile Doors)
Security revolving doors and mantrap portals are often called “turnstile doors” in the security industry. Providing the highest level of security available in an entrance solution, security doors and portals prevent tailgating and piggybacking attempts at such a reliable level that no guard supervision is needed. This means a swift payback on the investment.
Turnstile, or access, gates complement any security turnstile array by providing wide, ADA accessible access for wheelchairs, rolling bags, deliveries and the like.
