Optical Turnstiles are high-end, technologically advanced modern electronic security turnstile entry solutions. They are made up of two cabinets with infrared beam detection. These cabinets use the infrared beams to tell when a person has passed through them. These electronic turnstiles utilize advanced software to integrate with modern access control systems and be controlled remotely.
Optical Turnstile Variation:
Optical turnstiles are very technologically advanced and because of this, they have many variations. Optical turnstiles are available as barrier-free units, meaning they rely solely on infrared beams to detect and deter passage or optical flap barrier turnstiles are available with a wide array of physical barriers to pair with the optical detection. Types of optical barrier turnstiles include drop arm, swing arm, swingglass, flap barrier, and retractable glass. Because of their design, optical turnstile cabinets can be installed close to or far from each other, allowing for customizable lane widths. This provides flexibility like with ADA approved handicap access and access for handcarts and other tools.
