A very important question customers often ask during the buying process is, “how much does a turnstile cost?” The real answer is: it depends. Turnstile prices can range anywhere from $1600 to $20000 per lane and beyond depending on project needs.
How Much Does a Turnstile Cost?
Buying a Turnstile is like Buying a Car
Buying a turnstile is a lot like buying a car; each is highly customizable and they both require a little bit of thought prior to purchasing. If you’ve ever shopped around for a new car, you probably already know that they have many options and trim levels to choose from that can change prices substantially. Car buyers weigh the costs and benefits of additional options, only adding the ones they consider worthwhile. These added options ultimately determine the final price of the car; the more options you choose to add, the higher the price. The same is true for turnstile pricing. Anything from cabinet finish to added functionality can change the price of a turnstile. Just like a car buyer working with a salesman, turnstile buyers can work with access control specialists to determine which turnstile products and options best fit their needs.
When a customer approaches our Hayward Turnstiles access control specialists, we immediately get to work providing a one-on-one pricing consultation. To do this, we first provide a brief overview of all our different types of turnstiles for sale to help our customers better understand what’s out there and what might work for them. To further narrow it down, we then learn about that customer’s specific project and their particular access control needs. This information helps us figure out which category of turnstiles or handicap accessible gates is right for them. Continue reading below for more information about the turnstile pricing process, and how you can determine a turnstile’s cost.
The Turnstile Pricing Process
Our access control specialists are ready and willing to help you determine the best product for both your needs and your price point. Since turnstile pricing is a bit more involved than ordering something online, we work with you from conception to purchase decision. There are certain questions you must ask yourself when specifying turnstiles for you project (listed below), and our team will happily walk you through them every step of the way.
1. What Type of Turnstile Is Best for Me?
Potential buyers usually start by contacting a Hayward Turnstiles access control specialist and setting up a one-on-one call. Our access control specialists have seen it all: specifying products for universities, construction sites, amusement parks, and even multi-million dollar corporate office spaces. Right from the start of your call with our team, we will determine which type of turnstile or ADA compliant gate is best for your project. A number of factors like level of security, aesthetic requirements, and installation location go into this decision, but fear not; there is always a type of turnstile or security gate to match your needs.
Generally speaking, our products can be broken down in to five different categories:
- Waist high tripod turnstiles
- ADA compliant handicap gates
- Full height turnstiles
- Full height ADA gates
- Optical turnstiles
Each of these product categories exhibits different strengths and weaknesses used to determine the best fit for your project needs. For instance, our full height turnstiles offer floor to ceiling security and some of the most rugged construction on the market, but you would be hard-pressed to find them in the lobby of an upscale high rise office. They just do not fit well for that application and, frankly, would stick out like a sore thumb. This is why we talk so highly of our access control specialists because they have years of experience and industry knowledge under their belts to help guide you towards the right type of turnstile.

2. What Is My Access Control Project Budget?
We get it, your project is going to be subject to budgetary constraints. This is why–unlike a car salesman–our access control specialists will always suggest multiple products in a range of different prices to ensure that you can find a product that will satisfy both your budgetary needs and your security needs. In fact, most of our product categories have products that occupy entry, mid-level, and upper-level price points, so you are never really stuck with just one option. Even if we cannot match you with the right product for your turnstile price point, we surely can recommend you to another company that can. Ready to have a chat? Contact us today!
3. What Options Will My Turnstiles Need?
Just like kitting out your new car with trim levels, appearance options, and upgrades, once you have determined which turnstiles or gates will best fit your project needs, it is time to customize. We offer a plethora of options and add-ons to further align our products with your specific needs. These options include:
- People counters
- Custom signage
- Multi-direction functionality
- Indicator lights
- Push button operation
- Toggle keys
- And much more…
Though there is variation between the base prices of our products, the true variation lies in how you customize them. Anything from finish to functional add-ons can change the price of an order drastically, so it is best to consult with our access control specialists before making any big purchasing decision. When everything is all said and done, it is our goal to provide you with a product you will be happy with that works to your liking, so we welcome your calls with any questions or concerns you may have.
