Full height turnstiles are floor-to-ceiling automatic turnstiles with a mechanical rotating barrier that enables entrance to one person at a time by locking after that person enters the secured area. Also known as electric full height turnstiles or full height security turnstiles, they are made of high-quality, low-maintenance #304 stainless sheet, ensuring a high degree of resistance to weather and vandalism. The full height turnstile gates are intended to be used as high-level crowd control solutions for monitoring pedestrian flows and access control at the entrance of restricted areas requiring high security and the necessity for complete closure of the passageway.
Bright built-in LED indicators are included with full height turnstile gates to indicate whether access is allowed or not. After an open signal is approved, they will unlock and let pedestrians push to enter. After each passage, the rotating portion smoothly returns to the home position and locks in place. The alarm will sound in the event of any unauthorized entries or attempts to tailgate an allowed entry.
Automatic Full Height Turnstiles, in conjunction with an access control system or any device having a dry contact output, allow bi-directional access control. Such security turnstiles enable a free passageway for departing customers in an emergency. Additionally, public security offices, bank vaults, jails, and other crucial security scenarios can all make use of the full-height turnstiles with strong security and anti-tailing.

What is a full height turnstile gate?
A full height turnstile gate is an enhanced waist-high turnstile gate with a floor-to-ceiling arm design. It is an effective crowd control solution to manage pedestrians entering or leaving restricted areas where perimeter control is required because its standard height of 2300cm effectively eliminates the possibility of someone crawling under the turnstile as well as the possibility of them jumping over it. The stringent tailgating function of the full-height turnstile gate permits one person to pass at a time by locking after that person enters. Such security turnstile is made of lacquered or stainless steel, creating a very effective deterrent to intruders.
How does full-height turnstile gate work?
Entry and/or exit from the specified premises is made possible by the arms rotating in the configured direction. A full-height turnstile gate has two-way access control and comes in single and twin entry/exit turnstile configurations. Additionally, the turnstiles contain a method for quick egress in case of emergency. It is always integrated with a variety of access control systems to customize the special turnstile access control systems as needed.
Can the full height turnstile gates be integrated with the third-party access control system?
Yes, they integrate easily with facility access control and visitor management systems through standard dry contact inputs and outputs.
What about the full height turnstile gate work in the event of an emergency or a power outage?
It comes with inputs for receiving alarm signals, so when an emergency alert or button is pressed, they instantly unlock. The locking system will automatically release the route to provide free access in emergencies or if there is a power outage.
The types of full-height turnstile gates
Three types of full height turnstile gates exist;
Fully automatic Full-height turnstile gates:Such turnstiles operate by using a DC brushless motor with a uniquely designed sheave mechanism. People lightly touch the brake lever to pass when the motor drives the lever to rotate forward at a certain angle;
Semi-automatic full-height turnstile gates: such pedestrian turnstile gates are not supplied with motors, but they have control circuit boards as well as other electrical add-ons. The pedestrians pass through the lanes by pushing the bar manually after getting a valid open signal;
Mechanical full-height turnstile gates:They are pure mechanical structures without any electrical components. Without waiting for an open signal from the access control system, the users gently push the brake lever to travel through the passage. The free passage can only be controlled in one direction by the automatic positioning and reset mechanism, while the other direction is locked.
What are the advantages of a full-height turnstile gate?
1. offers the strictest crowd control management with the highest degree of safety and dependability;
2. offers unmanned operation with the highest level of security;
3. having good dust- and waterproof performance, making it ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications;
4. highly compatible with various security systems, verification devices, etc.;
5. simple to operate without assistance.
