There are many types of revolving access control gates. Waist hightripod turnstiles, full height turnstiles, and four-arm turnstiles are all revolving gates because they each have spinning arms. Revolving access control gates may vary in size, shape, and appearance and often serve different purposes.
Revolving turnstile gates are used for both security and access control. They are designed to let a single person pass through them at a time but can be locked to deny access if needed. Revolving turnstile gates are used in stadiums, subway systems, amusement parks, warehouses, construction sites, distribution centers and more. These gates are often used together in a series to form a protective border at an access point.
