The Advantages of Full-Height Turnstiles



Full-height turnstiles, consisting of rotating barriers that extend from the floor to the top of the turnstile, can enhance the physical security of buildings and properties’ perimeters. By allowing passage to only authorized personnel and reducing the risk of compromise, they set smart boundaries and keep access secure.

Full-height turnstiles have several advantages over doors:

  • They prevent hold open which is common with swing doors.
  • They control how many people can enter, limiting the number that can go in or out when a credential is presented.
  • They prevent tailgating (i.e., unauthorized individuals entering right behind authorized individuals).
  • They can isolate entry to just one direction.
  • They offer operational flexibility (many accommodate a variety of credential readers).
  • They have an impressive throughput rate of up to 20 people per minute.
  • They are well suited for applications with unmanned areas where a high level of security is needed.
  • They can be set up on a moveable pallet for transitory openings, such as those on construction sites.
