Optical Turnstiles are high-end, technologically advanced entry solutions. They consist of two pedestal cabinets that use infrared beams to detect and monitor the passage of people and objects. Optical turnstiles are available with or without physical barriers such as stainless steel arms or glass panels depending on the level of security required. Optical Turnstiles have advanced operational features and are integrated with an access control system. Lane widths can vary to accommodate ADA compliance.
Barrier-free Optical Turnstiles offer excellent security and are frequently used in high-traffic environments where rapid traffic flow is important. These turnstiles offer superior counting capabilities and are perfect for busy office lobbies, cafeterias and other high-traffic areas.
Optical turnstiles with barriers are used in higher security environments and provide a physical barrier to entry. They can be fit with glass panels that swing or retract into the turnstile cabinet to allow passage upon receiving a valid identification. These barrier optical models offer a visual obstacle while maintaining aesthetic appeal. The panels act as a physical deterrent to entry. These turnstiles come in a variety of glass heights and cabinet styles. Optical Turnstiles are also available with swinging or dropping stainless steel arms.
