Hayward Turnstiles is a leading turnstile manufacturer and trusted supplier for advanced access control systems for office buildings and lobbies for more than 50 years. With continual modernization and new leaps in technical innovation happening daily, our world is gaining more and more office buildings and corporate headquarters all the time. These buildings are often sophisticated and professional in design with modern styling and high-tech features. Companies understand that their headquarters are reflections of their ideologies and success, so they often design incredible buildings with lavish, expansive lobbies and entryways.
Office buildings and corporate headquarters house important financial information, confidential client records, and invaluable trade secrets. They also contain expensive networks of computers, servers, and other key infrastructures that are crucial to keeping a business running. Office supplies alone like phones and printers are a substantial investment for larger office buildings. The supplies and infrastructure contained within office buildings are vulnerable to attacks by malicious competitors, disgruntled employees, and thieves. Though many companies understand these risks, they rarely secure their office lobbies. At many office buildings, headquarters even, it is possible to walk right through a lobby and into the inner-workings of the business. And at larger companies with high foot traffic, it is impossible to keep track of who entered where to cause what damage to your company.
To avoid attacks on your business and data, it is a good idea to start by securing your office entrance and/or lobby. This can easily be done by implementing optical turnstiles. These office entrance turnstiles utilize high-tech infrared beams to detect and deter passage into your building. They can also come with physical barriers if added security is required. These office lobby turnstiles are designed with aesthetics and modern styling in mind, offering a welcome enhancement to a lobby’s look. Optical turnstiles allow only credentialed entrants passage into your business, ensuring that only the right people gain entry. In addition, optical lobby turnstiles come with intuitive software that allows for easy lane control at the touch of a finger, providing a company with even more control of who enters their business.
Another option used to control access into and out of an office lobby is a swing gate, also know as an ADA gate (meaning a gate that complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act). These gates feature modern styling and sleek lines usually constructed of glass swinging barriers fixed to polished stainless steel posts. They provide physical access control where handicap accessibility and aesthetics are both equally important. Pictured on the left, they are a great addition to your office lobby’s decor and will blend right in.
Finally, for situations where higher security are required, a company can benefit from installing revolving door turnstiles. These office building turnstiles look identical to traditional revolving doors, but with the access controlling capabilities of a full height turnstile. Revolving door turnstiles only allow access to a single person at a time and will lock directly after that person makes it through the unit. These office entrance turnstiles are a great solution for high-security office buildings because they provide the highest level of security while still looking inviting and sleek with their transparent design and stainless steel frame.
