Turnstiles for Stadiums, Entertainment Industry

Hayward Turnstiles is a top turnstile manufacturer and turnstile supplier for stadiums and large arenas for over 50 years. To get an idea of how big the stadium entertainment industry, one only needs to look at the facts. In 2017, over 67000 people attended NFL games on average–just about the size of Santa Fe, New Mexico’s population. Stadiums make money by selling tickets, concessions, and merchandise to patrons that flock to the stadiums to see concerts, games, and more. Live events in a packed colossal stadium are second to none in entertainment value, making them extremely popular.

Stadium Turnstile Access Control and Security Challenges

There are many access control and security challenges that come with managing attendance numbers the size of the capital of New Mexico. At the beginning and end of games massive numbers of people must enter and exit in a calm and control fashion. Stadium attendants must also make sure that only patrons with tickets gain admittance while making sure those that pose a threat to the stadium are denied entrance. This is a challenging and expensive feat that requires a large team of attendants and perfect coordination. If control is lost, many dangerous situations could arise. Not to mention if harmful individuals gain entrance results could be devastating.

Access Control and Security Turnstile Solutions for Stadiums

Many stadiums use either waist high turnstiles or optical turnstiles to control access at their entrances and exits. These stadium turnstiles restrict access to one person at a time per lane, effectively organizing patrons and controlling the speed of their entry down to a manageable rate. Waist high turnstiles are rugged, low maintenance, and provide a strong barrier against unauthorized entrance. Most stadiums set up waist high turnstiles to lock on entry and allow free exit. This way, patrons may leave whenever they please (still one at a time), but they can’t just turn around and walk back in. Optical turnstiles provide similar security but with a faster throughput. Their barriers open quickly and detect passage with infrared beams to provide the quickest, most efficient operation. Both of these types of turnstiles are available with card readers or any other credential reader to provide fully autonomous ticket checking. This will minimize the need for a large team of attendants or will free attendants up to monitor other things like dangerous entrants and threats. These ticket turnstiles are a great entry solution for football and other sports stadiums to save money and minimize risks.

ADA compliant handicap gates are often used alongside waist high and optical turnstiles at stadiums. Our Hayward Turnstiles ADA gates match our waist high and optical models and are used to provide access to handicapped patrons without compromising access control and security. These gates can also be used for workers with tools or patrons with large posters or signs.
