Security Turnstiles for the Construction Industry

Construction is the process of erecting a building or infrastructure. Construction is an all-encompassing term and the industry itself can be broken down into three main sub-sectors: building construction, heavy and civil engineering construction, and specialty trade construction. In developed countries, the construction industry occupies about six to nine percent of the gross domestic product. Construction projects often involve massive budgets, expensive machinery, and multiple collaborators.

Security and Access Control Challenges for Construction Sites

Construction almost always takes place on location. This creates a number of security challenges for construction companies. Large, expensive equipment stays on site along with lumber, steel, and other building materials. When the work day is over and nobody is left on site, the materials and machinery are left unguarded and vulnerable. Thieves and vandals take advantage of this opportunity and often cut fences, graffiti walls, and worst of all steal expensive equipment and materials.

Along with protecting the valuable items within the construction site, it is also important to protect the public from the hazardous conditions characteristic of many construction sites. Seasoned construction workers are vigilant and know how to avoid common workplace-related dangers, but if a passerby accidentally wanders into a construction site there could be serious consequences.

Construction companies can avoid these common workplace security challenges at construction sites by installing hard-to-breach perimeter fences. But, these fences have weak spots–, especially at their entryways. Fence doors can be left unlocked or held open for unauthorized individuals, especially at high-risk/high-traffic construction sites. To eliminate these risks, many construction companies install full height turnstiles at their entryways. These turnstiles control access by only allowing one authorized person access at a time with no risk of tailgating or forgetting to lock doors.

At construction sites where new materials and equipment need to be walked in regularly, full height security gates may also be implemented alongside full height turnstiles. They exhibit larger entrance widths and can allow crates, wheel trucks, and other large materials access to a construction site while still keeping the area secure otherwise.
