Choosing the perfect turnstile: Tips and tricks to find the best solution for your needs

Feel free to contact us and discuss all your questions with our team.
Key parameters to select your turnstile solution
In general, you can differentiate between two areas during the process of finding an optimal solution:
The product demand, and its installed location.
- Choose according to demand and functionality – The first and most important factor in the turnstile decision-making process is defining the actual demand and matching it with a product’s functionality. In general, the following four scenarios can help define your final choice:
- Control human traffic (no other requirements): Tripod Turnstiles or Flap Barriers
- Control human traffic in addition to motor vehicles: Boom Barriers, Side Access Gates, or Swing Turnstile Gates
- Control human traffic at extremely fast speed: Flap Barriers or Speed Gates
- High security requirements: Full-Height Turnstiles and Mantraps
- Choose according to site – Another key component in the decision-making process is an in-depth analysis of the application site. As a thumb rule, you can differentiate between three key site requirements:
- Venues that need to be allowed to enter – Such as factories, clubs, office buildings, community buildings, universities, schools, etc.
- Venues that need to charge for ticket inspection – Such as cinemas, subways, concert venues, scenic spots, museums, etc.
- Venues that have high demand for security levels – Such as banks, warehouses, prisons, research labs, hospitals, etc.
In addition, other indications in the form of budget limits, particular challenging weather environments, or aesthetic design requirements might impact your final choice of turnstile models.
