Speed gates, also known as fastlane turnstile gates or speed gate security turnstiles, are constructed with transparent tempered glass and stainless-steel housing in order to secure access to restricted areas and manage pedestrian traffic. This design strikes the ideal balance between the stability of the equipment and the elegant design. It is frequently used in upmarket corporate lobbies, high-rise building entrances, opulent apartment complexes, universities, and other places where autonomous entry and aesthetics are vital as a crowd management solution for compact locations with high aesthetic and comfort criteria.
Speed gate turnstile allows easy, quick, and safe access while serving as a formidable visual deterrent to intrusion. Once the pedestrian has walked through, the passage will close at once, and open immediately after receiving a proper open signal, preventing unauthorized access or tailgating. The physical barrier and cutting-edge sensor technology work together to effectively detect and prevent intrusion. A high bidirectional traffic flow and high levels of security are combined by the security speed gate turnstile, and its detecting system enables accurate control of users for optimal safety and protection.
The stainless steel chassis of the turnstile speed gate offers standard (600mm) and wider (900mm) lane widths to accommodate various application needs. And the heights of tempered glass panels 1.0m, 1.2m, or 1.8m are available to provide increasing levels of security as required. The easy integration of proximity, magnetic card readers, biometric scanners, and other user authentication technologies is provided. Finally, single- or bi-directional access can be programmed for effective management of pedestrian traffic.
With excellent production and R & D capabilities, Jayda company manufactures and supplies a variety of speed gate turnstiles with diverse pricing and designs for use in various applications. Every year, we still are trying to upgrade such security turnstiles with fashionable designs while offering customer customization.
What is a speed gate turnstile?
With its quick traffic speed, running speed, precise positioning function, and stable operation, the speed gate turnstile is an upgraded swing gate turnstile that offers convenient and secure access. It uses a reliable DC24V brushless motor or servo motor to provide quick processing and long-term stable operation. It also comes with a slim and stylish design that enables it to be used in compact spaces and blend in with the aesthetics of the surroundings. It is gaining in popularity for applications where maintaining safety and security is vital, and is frequently used for offices, banks, governmental institutions, and data centers. In addition, it combines the physical barrier and advanced sensor technology to offer entry detection and prevention without the need for a guard.
How does a speed gate turnstile work?
A facility access control system in conjunction with a speed gate turnstile, which acts as a physical barrier turnstile between secured areas and public areas, offers bi-directional access. A valid credential that opens the turnstile's motorized barriers in the desired directions and permits a single passage at a time. The inbuilt sensors detect an illegal passage attempt and sound an alarm, blocking access whenever an unauthorized pedestrian tries to enter without permission or tailgates on an authorized entry. The security turnstile speed gate will release its swings in the case of a power outage or other emergency, allowing free access.
The types of speed gate turnstiles
Speed gate turnstiles can be classified as brushless motor type and servo motor type
Brushless motor type: uses a DC24V brushless motor and has no mechanical friction, low running noise, long life, high rotation speed, and high power conversion efficiency.
Servo motor type: uses a servo motor, with a faster, more dependable, and longer lifespan than a brushless motor type of speed gate turnstile. However, a servo motor speed gate turnstile cost is higher than a brushless motor speed gate turnstile cost,
What are the benefits of installing a speed gate turnstile?
Installing a speed gate turnstile has some benefits for customers as well as the establishment where it is installed. It enables automatic access control, prevents invasions, and boosts security without the need for security personnel. It is helpful to control employee entry and exit and is beneficial for dividing sections with restricted access.
What are the differences between a speed gate turnstile and a swing gate turnstile?Chasis design: The swing arm of the speed gate turnstile is constructed of pendulum plexiglass or tempered glass, and the chassis has a width that ranges from 100 to 180 mm. However, the swing gate turnstile has a bigger chassis with a typical width of 280mm and swing arms made of #304 stainless steel or pendulum acrylic;
Traffic speed: A speed gate turnstile opens in 0.3 seconds per time, allows 30~45 people/minute to pass through, and has an adjustable speed, making it faster than a swing gate turnstile. The speed gate turnstile has a memory feature that allows users to continuously swipe cards and access them. Despite the swing gate turnstile's longer opening time and slower traffic speed (about 20–25 people/minute), without a memory function, which results in only one user being permitted to pass at a time;
Driveway: The speed gate turnstile movement uses a directly driven method that combines an encoder and a clutch. The swing arm can get the maximum amount of the motor's effective power due to the high motor transmission efficiency, namely the big transmission coefficient. When the swing arm experiences an abrupt external force that causes it to deviate from the zero position, the solenoid valve shuts the gate to stop the force and the encoder directs the swing arm to return to the zero position. The clutch will immediately lock the gate in the event of illegal entry. The sliding friction, four-wheels-four-grooves principle is used in the swing gate turnstile action, which has a lower transmission efficiency. The groove and wheel are 90 degrees apart. The grooved wheel will slide and rub once for every swing of the swing arm. A fixed mechanism also positions the placement. If the anti-collision device is not placed, the external force will immediately strike the movement or swing arm in the event of an impact, causing the swing arm to deviate from the middle zero position and preventing the two sides from being aligned or synchronized. In the worst-case scenario, the swing arm will bend due to improper movement. Unauthorized entry can only sound an alarm and cannot be locked;
Limit way: Swing gate turnstiles use optocoupler signals or proximity switches, which have a wide contact area and unreliable limits. However, encoders are used in speed gate turnstiles to limit the position with a 1° accuracy.
What are the advantages of a speed gate turnstile?
1. Creates an attractive entrance checkpoint thanks to its stainless-steel housing and translucent glass walls;
2. construct a formidable visual barrier to prevent infiltration;
3. Provided with tailgating attempt detection to prevent unauthorized entry
4. A slim, attractive design with a small footprint to blend in with the aesthetics of the surroundings;
5. When equipped with intrusion detection, doors cannot open onto people in the safety zone and wrong-way detection stops the gate from opening when a person approaches from the secure side;
6. Offers quick throughput and comfortable movement in a dense throng of people while preventing lines at the entry and exit;
7. Provided with a range of physical barrier heights and lane widths to accommodate wheelchairs, and large deliveries, meeting accessibility and security standards.
Can a speed gate turnstile be integrated with the third-party access control system?
Yes, it integrates easily with facility access control and visitor management systems through standard dry contact inputs and outputs.
