Features & Benefits of Tripod Turnstile


1. Turnstile Integrated With Access Control Card Readers

For seamless integration into a pre-existing access control solution, our standard turnstile body post comes installed with an Access controller and two authentication readers devices such as Access control proximity card reader, card capture device, audio alarm with indicator lights to for an intuitive user feedback functionality.
Choosing turnstiles with pre-installed readers greatly shorten the installation time and doesn’t affect the aesthetic appearance of the office environment.
The most popular variant IP-based turnstile offers a total access control solution. It consists of a turnstile with built-in controller and readers or even a card capture reader if required.
In addition, it is reasonable to pay attention to other technical considerations, such as
1. The low operation voltage of the turnstile at 12-24V to ensure product safety
2. Mechanical Smoothness of Barrier arms rotation
3. Option for activation of Bi-directional passage during peak hours with high foot traffic  when needed


2 Integrated Access Control Authentication

The tripod turnstile can be configured to allow the visitor to carry out access control authentication to receive entry and exit approval
This can be done out using various credentials, such as the Printed barcode, QR code, NFC proximity smart card, and even Mobile phone NFC.


3. Compact Space Saving Design

If space constraint is a challenge for a small sized reception, a tripod turnstile with a slimmer, shorter design form factor can be used.
A smaller physical footprint, allows you to save space on both the security and the unsecured areas of the building premises


Elegant Sleek Design

the elegant lean structure allows the tripod turnstile to have the versatility to discreetly fit into a wide range of operating environment.
With its compact design, the tripod can be applied at entrance points of various configurations.
Compact tripod turnstile features anti-panic barrier arms automatically falling down when triggered by an emergency alarm signal or during a power loss, which makes it possible to immediately clear the passageway in emergency situations.
The tripod turnstile is equipped with automatic anti-panic folding arms is suitable for indoor application at entrances of commercial, public and industrial organizations providing distant clear of the passageway in case of emergency.


4. Regulatory Requirements for Safe Emergency Evacuation


Instant Passage Clearance

Another consideration is ensuring compliance with regulatory safety standards imposed on passage area arrangement at facility entrance.
Having the safety capability to create an instant passage clearance for the unobstructed escape during an emergency evacuation is an essential safety requirement. It is necessary to not only prevent an unauthorized person passage but also to provide the possibility of the escape route arrangement in case of an urgent building evacuation.
This can be achieved in a number of various different ways, such as choosing a turnstile (eg. Speed gates or motorized Swing gates) that provides a wide passage area when the device power is switched off or has an alarm signal option.


Automatic Anti-Panic Barrier Arms

Turnstile equipped with anti-panic barrier arms configuration (automatic) or key override control function (manual) will be sufficient for the small company building facility. Automated anti-panic barrier arms fall in a vertical position when it has received an emergency alarm signal or shut off. In this way, it helps to clear the passageway without the need to use the key or tools.


Emergency Commands

– Arm drop away function to give unhindered exit passage clearance during emergencies
Once the emergency is restored, the tripod arm rearms and functions as per normal automatically.
The turnstile performs emergency folding of barrier arms by a remote signal from an access control system or at a power loss. When the power is restored to bring back the folded arm into operating position (blocking the passage) just lift it manually.


5. Automated Identity Credential Authentication 

In most case, it’s very possible that these reception employees have to manage visitor movement through the use of identity credential authentication before being given entrance access.
On the way into the guarded building, all visitor have to how their uniquely issued credentials to the digital authentication device such as RFID smart card reader or Biometrics reader (fingerprint, finger-vein, or Facial features) or PIN pad.
In a Smart lane optical turnstiles setup, as the personal identity credential is successfully verified, the turnstile glass barrier will swing open to open the lanes for an unobstructed passage for the person to proceed through.
Typically on the way to exit, our clients do not control personnel exit by having an unrestricted free exit arrangement.
