Pedestrian turnstiles are turnstiles or access control gates used to control people traffic. They are often used in public transportation projects like at subway stations, bus terminals, and train stations. These security turnstiles allow authorized entry while denying unauthorized entry completely autonomously. Companies save money with a pedestrian turnstile access control system in place because they no longer need to pay attendants at their entryways.
Pedestrian turnstiles come in many shapes and sizes. Virtually any turnstile or gate offered can be used for pedestrian applications. There are high-security full height turnstiles that span from floor to ceiling. Further, there are high-quality optical turnstiles that offer a modern and technologically advanced entry solution. There are also waist high turnstiles that have continually proven to be a rugged and maintenance-free solution in rough environments like the subways of New York City. Finally, there are ADA gates which are swinging gates that act much like waist high turnstiles, differing only that they swing to open in order to accommodate handicapped entrants.
Pedestrian turnstiles have a wide range of applications. Since pedestrian turnstiles are used to control people traffic, for entrance security, and for identification purposes, they can really be used anywhere. These turnstiles are most often used in high-traffic transportation hubs like subway systems, train stations, airports, and bus terminals. They can even be fitted with card readers for completely autonomous operation. The possibilities are endless and wherever access control is needed, Hayward Turnstiles can provide the perfect product for each specific application.
