Full Height Turnstile

Full Height Turnstiles gates are often deployed by buildings in Singapore when it is necessary to reliably protect against illegitimate intrusion attempts and enhance the facilities access control security.
At T3 Security integration, we have over 10 years of experience dealing with turnstile physical security projects, where we have successfully helped clients to implement an effective pedestrian entrance access control solution, such as Swing gates, Flap Barriers, Drop Arm Barrier, and Speedgates.
This includes implementing turnstile solutions in highly secured and guarded sites like Military defense facilities, Law enforcement Correctional facilities, Industrial Manufacturing plants, Recreational Sports stadiums, and Theaters.
Turnstile gate access control, also known as pedestrian entrance control, is a means or method for metering or controlling personnel that is entering a building facility or campus premises.
Full height Turnstile gates, in particular, are often used to help execute various access control functionality, such as
1. Manage and Regulate the stream of inbound human traffic
2. Safeguard building facilities from unauthorized person access
3. Control exit and entrance movement of personnel

Features & Benefits of Full Height Turnstile Gate


1. Providing A Correct level of Security

In most cases, it is sufficient to install a Waist level Half height turnstiles, such as tripods turnstile, Box turnstiles, or Speed gates.
However, for restricted high-security buildings, it requires the installation of a full height turnstile. They not only just fully block the passage but can also work in lock chamber mode in the event that an emergency security lockdown of the premises is required.


Anti-Climb Canopy 

Installation of a canopy can deter against the intruder from attempting to climb over the turnstile barriers.


Prevent Transferring of Access Credentials 

The design of a full height turnstile also ensures that access privileges are granted only for one person by preventing the illegitimate transferring and sharing of the access control credential ID card.


2. Integrated Turnstile Access Control Functionality

Generally, the turnstile access control is operationally integrated with the access control system.
In a standard turnstile configuration, the housing unit is equipped with identity credential authentication devices (such as an RFID proximity card reader) which operates with a sliding physical barrier to ensure only one entry is allowed per ID authentication.
The mechanical turnstiles and Pedestrian Entrance Controls (PECs) are in many ways functionally similar to the access control doors in a standard security access control system design.


Integration with Visitor Management System

Typically in a standard access control configuration, Proximity access control readers are used for the authentication of employees and vendors.
For the authentication of visitors, we are able to incorporate other special authentication readers into our turnstile  such as
– Barcode insertion reader – For reading barcodes generated by the visitor management system
– NFC readers – For authentication using a cell phone


3. Security Enhanced Entry Detection for Unmanned Entrance Lobby 

For front desk reception which is unattended, where the security staff is positioned physically far away, a high-security access management of the person entry and exit movement is usually needed. Although there might be CCTV surveillance cameras on the turnstile lanes and the security personnel are unable to react in a swift manner and handle in the situation there is a tailgating attempt or a situation of a denied access of an illegitimate person.
Our turnstile has extended cabinets built-in for integration with electronic hardware for enhanced entry and exit detection if needed.


Smart Anti-Tailgate Features

Built-in smart optical beam sensors enable the turnstile gates to detect, register and ensure that only one person is granted physical access in each entry access session.
In addition, Smart detection sensors built into the pedestrian entrance control systems also ensure that large items, such as trolleys or luggage bag carried by visitors don’t trigger a false alarm of tailgating attempts.

Throughput and Passage Width

Throughput and passage width are critical factors when choosing a turnstile gate. The throughput is calculated according to Peak load at the security front desk.
The passage width of the Turnstile lanes influences the convenience and comfort of the user experience.
* For example, Tripod generally has a narrower passage width and throughput (persons per minute) in contrast to Speed gate, which has a wider passage width, and higher throughput.
