A turnstile is a form of a gate that allows only one person to pass through it at a time; it ensures one way traffic of people. Some turnstiles are designed in a way that it doesn’t let people pass unless a ticket, coin or something similar is inserted into it.
Implementation of turnstile gate:
- Restricting people from entering a venue.
- Increase security.
- Restricts the entry of people without a valid entry pass, or without paying the fare.
- Crowd control in times of emergency.
- Keeping count of people entering or leaving a venue.
Turnstiles come in four types:
- Waist high – mainly used in amusement parks, when a ticket is inserted, a bar-code is read from it, if access is granted, a sensor determines the rotation speed of the motor that turns the gate and allows the person to pass.
- Drop arm optical – mainly used for security purpose, if access is granted the arms fall back into a space in the cabinet, and then it works like a fully optical turnstile.
- Optical– these are used where physical barrier is not required; it uses infrared beams to count the number of people passing through it, and can immediately detect any unauthorized entry.
- Full height – this provides optimal security since no one can jump over it, there are two types of full height turnstile, one type allows rotation in both direction, while the other allows people to pass in one direction only.
Benefits of using turnstile gates over conventional doors:
- Improved security
- Access control integration
- Operational flexibility.
- Fits in perfectly in corporate settings.
- Available in various types and sizes.
The only disadvantage includes its relatively high maintenance cost compared to traditional mechanical alternatives.
