Tripod Turnstiles Control Crowds of People at Stadiums, Amusement Parks and Office Buildings

Tripod Turnstiles

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.

Tripod turnstiles are found in stadiums, transit stations, amusement parks and even high-end office lobbies that require special architectural finishes and integrated access control systems. We offer several models to choose from, including portable and battery operated, ticketing and fare collection, and drop-arm options.

Full Height Turnstiles Deter Tailgating and Are Ideal for Indoor and Outdoor Use

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.

When integrated with access control systems, full-heights can protect areas such as parking lots, stadiums, transit stations, factories, and construction sites. Boon Edam offers several types and finishes ranging from durable, utilitarian metal turnstiles to transparent models using glass and polycarbonate, suitable for indoor environments. Space-saving tandem (double) models are also available.

Optical Turnstiles

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.

Optical turnstiles are ideal for the discreet management of high traffic in offices, lobbies, banks, etc. We offer barrier and barrier-free opticals in a wide variety of cabinet styles and finishes and sensor technologies.
