TURNSTILES FOR SECURE, CONTROLLED ENTRY
To improve the physical security of buildings and facilities, one of the best options is often the use of turnstiles to control employee and visitor access. A turnstile is a mechanism that allows a location to have control over entry and exit. Most consist of a horizontal arm that extends from a post and allows people to pass through, given the condition has been met. To pass through the turnstile it might be necessary to present an authorised identification or to make payment. Other similar structures keep a count of individuals that pass through. Turnstiles provide security, control crowds, prevent loss control, and control admission and/or access.
Places across Scotland and the North of England that commonly use turnstiles include amusement parks, public transportation, airports, and sporting events. The design allows only one person to pass through at a time. Another use is to maintain pedestrian traffic in a single direction. Most modern turnstiles are mechanical, which allows the arm to be rotated one direction but not the other. Many are electronic, and some operate with optical sensors that can scan tickets or badges. If the sensor does not recognise the ticket or badge, an audible alarm sounds. If you would like to find out more about controlling access to your property with a turnstile, get in touch with CM Barriers & Gates now.
TYPES OF TURNSTILES AVAILABLE
Turnstiles fall into three primary categories: optical, full height, and waist high. The type needed is dependent on the application it is being used for. Choosing the right turnstile requires consideration of many different factors, including whether it is for indoor or outdoor use, the desired level of security, budget, features needed, and aesthetic preferences. If you are unsure, which turnstile would work best for you, talk to the team at CM Gates & Barriers now.
Full height turnstiles consist of rotating barriers that extend from the floor to top of the turnstile, creating a full height barrier that looks like a revolving door. These can come as a single unit or as a tandem unit, which combines two turnstiles within a smaller footprint. Full height turnstiles are best suited for situations that require higher levels of security, especially in unmanned locations. Common users are military bases, nuclear and energy facilities, distribution warehouses and manufacturing facilities. For perimeter control, fence line security and parking lot access there is no better option than a full height turnstile.
Waist high turnstiles consist of a tripod barrier arm installed at waist height that rotates to allow entry. Sturdy construction and mechanics allow these to last for decades, even under extreme use. Waist high turnstiles are frequently used in public access locations, such as theme parks and stadiums, to manage the large crowds of people entering the facility. Other common uses include lobby areas, warehouses, manufacturing facilities and employee cafeterias. Typical applications include employee access control and visitor management.
USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT TURNSTILES AND INDUSTRIAL DOORS
Provide Protection & Physical DeterrentWhen it comes to protection, many business owners tend to think of the physical building, as opposed to the entire property. Facilities like hospitals, universities, prisons, and commercial enterprises can benefit from the added security of high-quality security gates. Restricted areas, pedestrian entrances, and facility entrances often need an additional level of security. At CM Gates & Barriers, our bespoke services mean you get the highest safety and security standards while maintaining the aesthetics of the property. The presence of a formidable security gate is often enough to discourage trespassers or on-lookers from trying to access the property. Adding a gate to your property can also increase the level of privacy, which can be a welcomed change depending on the nature of the business.
Improved Control & AccessIf your facility requires access-control features like a keypad, card reader, telephone entry, our security gate systems can incorporate the level of control that is needed. This level of security further improves the security measures by our gates. Find out more about our access control solutions here.
Curb AppealAlthough one of the most important purposes of a security gate is to keep unwanted visitors outside, that does not mean it should hinder the property’s curb appeal. We pride ourselves on providing gates that are aesthetically pleasing and consistent with your property’s existing appearance, but most importantly, align with your businesses brand.
Additional SafetyHigh-security gates do more than simply protect the surrounding property. Our carefully engineered systems can also help to provide added security to your most important resource: your people. Restricting vehicles or intruders from gaining access to the building or property can provide the reassurance that employees are safe from trespassers.
