Need to control traffic physically?  Maybe you need a turnstile.  They come in different access types allowing or restricting traffic in one or both directions, card read in, out or in and out we can set up your turnstile to meet the needs of your traffic situation.  

Below is a picture of an installation on site in Irvine, Ca. with card read in and out.  

This type of turnstile is designed to provide access control to unsupervised installations. Rugged construction ensures trouble-free performance and durability. 

Heavy duty mechanism can be mechanical or self-centering and electrically operated. A second set of electrical controls can be added for exit. Any combination of fail-lock or fail-safe is available. 

Turnstile can be fabricated from choice of hot-dipped galvanized steel, powder coated steel, anodized aluminum with stainless steel arms, or complete stainless steel. The turnstile above has 3 rotor sections for 120 degrees of passage space, thereby allowing greater comfort in use. 

The bottom thrust bearing is dust and moisture proof. Open construction shield minimizes claustrophobic effect and increases visual security. 

Low voltage 24 VDC operating system requires normally open, momentary, dry contact to release turnstile. Galvanized model shown above.

Features and Options

Electrical Controls Electrical controls for entry only, exit only or independent bi-directional electrical controls for both entry and exit. (Standard Feature for electrically operated turnstiles)
Fail-lock or Fail-safe For electrically controlled direction. Status of turnstile when there is no power. Fail-lock direction is locked, fail-safe is free wheeling. (Standard Feature for electrical directions)
Free or Locked Operation For mechanical operation, direction is always locked or always free rotating. (Standard Feature for mechanical directions)
Voltage Transformer to step down from 110 VAC or 220 VAC. (Standard Feature for electrically operated turnstiles)
Pulse Relay Allows one rotation per valid "go" signal regardless of the signal length. (Optional) Recommended Option.
Time-out Relay Relay to automatically relock turnstile within a preset time if a person cards in and unlocks turnstile but does not go through. (Optional)
Indicator Lights Set of red and green lights to indicate if turnstile is locked or unlocked. One set per electrically controlled direction. (Optional)
Card Reader Mounting Plate Plate to allow mounting of reader on shield post. (Optional)
Heel Protectors Heavy duty foam rubber sleeves to cover bottom turnstile arms. Three required for THT-100(3). (Optional)
Remote Pushbutton Allows turnstile to be released from remote location for one rotation. (Optional)
Hydraulic Speed Control Heavy duty shock system that controls rotation speed of turnstile to minimize turnstile abuse and provide increased ease of use. Specifically designed for high volume, abusive conditions.
Ceiling Canopy Full circular stainless steel ceiling canopy instead of standard partial ceiling plate. (Optional)
Rotation Detection Switch Provides a Form "C" contact closure to the access control system for remote counting and monitoring of turnstile rotations. (Optional)
Home Position Switch Provides a Form "C" contact closure to access control system when turnstile is in home position. (Optional)
Solenoid Activation Switch Provides a Form "C" contact closure to access control system that turnstile solenoid has been activated. (Optional)
Electronic Key Bypass Key to allow turnstile to be held open, overriding card reader. (Optional)
Mechanical Key Bypass Key to allow fail-lock direction to opened during power failure. Standard feature for fail-lock applications.
Out of Use Lock For mechanical turnstile, loops on turnstile to allow turnstile to be locked using a padlock. (Optional for mechanical turnstiles)
