Understanding the Different Types of Turnstile Gates

Before you can make an informed decision, it’s crucial to understand the different types of turnstile gates available on the market. Turnstile technology has advanced significantly in recent years, which means you’ll find the traditional turnstile gates as well as the latest contact less options as well.

However, keep in mind that this isn’t an exhaustive list, but it’ll give you a good idea of the variety of turnstile options available to you.


1.      Full Height Turnstiles

As the name suggests, full-height turnstiles provide you access control and security from floor to ceiling. These turnstiles are made of durable steel, and therefore, are considered to be practically impenetrable due to their robust construction and large size.

Full height turnstiles consist of a vertical central post with perpendicular arms extending in three directions. The turnstile is surrounded by a cage that only allows access to one person at a time.

However, these turnstiles aren’t commonly found in business facilities but are instead preferred in correctional facilities or military and law enforcement bases.


2.      Waist Height Turnstiles

While you may not come across full height turnstiles too often, we’re sure you’re quite familiar with waist height turnstiles. These are commonly found in subway stations, stadiums, and amusement parks.

As the name suggests, rotating waist height turnstiles are essentially tripod turnstiles comprising a rectangular cabinet with three turnstile arms extending out in three different directions. These arms serve as the barrier when the system is locked. However, they are unlocked upon verification or authentication.

 

3.      Optical Turnstiles

If you’re looking for the latest technology in turnstile gates, optical turnstiles are what you need. These state-of-the-art turnstiles utilize optical beams to detect passage. Meanwhile, a complex logic system decides whether your access is authorized or not.

Optical turnstiles can also be combined with further physical barriers or installed without the barriers to present a more modern and welcoming feel. These are most commonly found in corporate offices and government buildings.


Turnstile Height/Security Level

We’ve seen that the primary division between types of turnstiles is based on the height, i.e., full height or waist height turnstiles. If you’re looking for added security, full-height turnstiles are ideal.

However, if you want to combine convenience with security, waist height turnstiles will be a better choice. Consider your security needs before you decide on the perfect turnstile height for your facilities.

Aesthetics

If security is the first consideration and convenience, the third spot should go to the aesthetics. While some turnstile gates pay attention to security, others are designed with aesthetics in mind. However, you’ll probably go for a product that combines all these factors.
