Full Height turnstiles are floor-to-ceiling turnstiles with mechanical rotating barriers. They operate similarly to a revolving door with the only difference being that they allow access to one person at a time, locking after letting one person through. These turnstiles are designed to offer maximum security because it is impossible for an unauthorized entrant to climb under or over them.
Full Height Turnstile Variations:
Full height turnstiles can be used for one-way or bi-directional passage. They come in many different finishes including anodized, stainless steel, and powder coated. They are available in a wide variety of passage widths ranging from 30″ all the way to 48″ to allow access to patrons with large objects such as backpacks or tools. When multiple lanes of entry and exit traffic are required, full height tandem turnstiles are also available–these models combine two full height turnstiles into one seamless package.
