Product overview

Available in a range of operating modes they can be interfaced with all forms of ATEX / IECEx certified access control systems.

Turnstile systems are manufactured from mild steel sections and sheets which are finished in a high specification multi-coat and anti-static paint system (colour – red RAL3001 as standard but other colour options are available on request).

The Turnstile rotors are constructed from 316 stainless steel 40 pipe (38mm x 3.7mm) and are spaced at 194mm (centre to centre of rotors)

Where the turnstile control point is remote from the installation, we strongly recommend the fitting of a recordable CCTV system.
