The disadvantage is that the channel is narrow and only pedestrians can pass through. The blocking body is generally a fan-shaped plane, perpendicular to the ground, blocking and release are realized through elasticity. The material of the blocking body is usually plexiglass and toughened glass, and some also use metal plates wrapped with special flexible materials (to reduce the damage caused by hitting pedestrians). The blocking body can be divided into blue, red, and acrylic transparent blocks. Moreover, the traffic speed is adjustable. Anti tailing, excellent personnel passage management effect.

Key Features:

There are many types of Features & benefit

  • Increased Security and Control - While automatic doors with access controls offer some security, they’re often prone to ‘tailgating’, wherein intruders or unauthorised persons follow immediately after those with authorised access when they enter or exit premises. This compromises the area’s security, and also makes it difficult to track the exact number and identities of those coming in and out of a supposedly secure area.
  • Round arm 3 meter
  • AC/DC/Servo based motor is stronger and maintenance-free, with electromagnet brake
  • Full Access Control Integration-Turnstile entry systems can be fully integrated with a building’s access control and security system. Working in conjunction with CCTV cameras, automatic doors and other security equipment, turnstiles and flap barriers can effectively secure premises. If an intruder or unauthorised person is detected at the turnstile, an alarm can quickly be triggered, doors locked down and cameras turned on to detain the threat. With the integrated access control system, you’ll also be able to collect information such as the specific identities, and time and location of every person coming and going through exit and entrance points.
  • Time and Cost Savings- With these systems in place there is a lesser need for security or front desk personnel to check and verify identification. Authorised persons can simply present their ID cards or biometrics and gain access. This saves you from having to pay personnel to constantly man exit and entrance points, and also saves time by streamlining the exit and entrance of persons.
  • Operational Flexibility- Turnstiles and flap barriers have plenty of options to suit your specific operational needs. You can set them to operate in one direction or bi-directionally. Setting them for entry only works in cases such as in early morning hours when employees are coming into a building. You can then switch them to exit only at night. They can also be locked down when your facility is closed, or in free pass mode, which lets people pass freely without authorisation in the event of an emergency.
  • Additional Features- Turnstiles and flap barriers can be used to count admissions and procure pertinent information such as the number of people currently in the area, peak traffic hours, and whether or not there are still people remaining in the area. This is particularly useful for venues such as amusement parks and sports venues. Another common use of turnstiles and flap barriers is enforcing payment at venues, where people cannot get in unless they have a paid ticket or access key. This is another very useful feature for amusement parks, sports venues and public transportation terminals.
