Swing gates, also known as swing gate turnstiles or optical swing turnstiles, are creative solutions for crowd control that bring security and safety into small, valuable spaces. They adopt streamlined designs with more fashionable appearances and seamlessly fuse infinite aesthetics with interior architectural needs. As they successfully blend convenience and security, they are growing in popularity. Large groups of people can easily be directed by sophisticated and intuitive sensors to pass securely through the optical turnstile lane by employing a swing gate turnstile. They are widely employed in a variety of applications, such as company foyers, data centers, government buildings, and fitness centers, thanks to their quick throughput, efficacy, and dependable operation.
The integrated brushless DC motor of the swing gate turnstile ensures quiet, stable operation, and improved anti-pinch and anti-trailing performance is used to ensure pedestrian safety. This ensures that the turnstile operates more smoothly and stops quickly after being blocked. When problems arise, some LED indicators on the control board are set up to display the error codes. Unauthorized entry or tailgating attempts will be effectively blocked by the automatic turnstile lane once warning notices by LED lights and voice prompts are triggered.
With swing gate turnstile designs, several validation systems can be integrated in accordance with the necessary specifications, and a user only needs to provide a valid credential to unlock the physical barriers in the desired direction. The built-in sensors detect any illegal passage attempts and trigger an alarm if an unauthorized person tries to enter without permission or tailgate on a valid entry. The swing optical turnstiles also offer one-way or two-way access in conjunction with access control systems, which have three preset passage modes: card in/card out, card in/free exit, and either or both ways closed.
With excellent production and R & D capabilities, Jayda Company manufactures and supplies a variety of swing turnstile gates with diverse costs and designs for use in various applications. Meanwhile, we continue to develop such electric turnstiles with fashionable designs each year, we also offer customization based on customer needs.

What is a swing gate turnstile?
Swing gate turnstile is a classic type of waist optical touchless turnstile combining the security of a physical barrier turnstile with the sophistication of optical beam detection to prevent tailgating and unauthorized entry with ease. It is designed with sleek styling and a modern appearance, and such a modern optical turnstile blends right in and complements its surroundings seamlessly with its included illumination packages and sleek, modern styling. Swing turnstile gate usually comes with a slim size and very compact footprint which solves the issue of introducing security and safety into small and valuable areas of real estate spaces. Finally, it is equipped with standard interfaces to be integrated with various access control systems to achieve multiple recognition ways.
How does a swing gate turnstile work?
Swing gate turnstile is an efficient and effective crowd management designed to control pedestrians entering or exiting restricted areas, usually under surveillance, in low-security situations. It provides bi-directional access in conjunction with a facility access control system. When entering, pedestrians need to present a valid credential that opens the turnstile’s motorized barriers in the requested directions, allowing a single passage at one time. If an unauthorized pedestrian attempts to tailgate on a valid entry, or attempts to enter without authorization, the integrated sensors recognize the illegal passage attempt and sound an alarm, and deny the access. In case of power failure or an emergency, the swing barrier gate turnstile will release their swings for free access.
What are the benefits of installing a swing gate turnstile?
Installing a swing gate turnstile has many benefits for customers as well as the establishment where it is placed. It enables automatic access control, prevents invasions, and boosts security without the need for access control personnel. It is helpful in controlling employee entry and exit and is beneficial for dividing sections with restricted access.
Can the swing gate turnstile be integrated with the third-party access control system?
Yes, the swing turnstile gate integrates easily with facility access control and visitor management systems through standard dry contact inputs and outputs.
The types of swing-gate turnstiles
Swing gate turnstiles are categorized into 2 types depending on the drive motor.
Brush motor type: employs a DC24V brush motor, featuring a cost-saving, simple structure. relatively simple in speed control
Brushless motor type: this type of swing gate turnstile employ DC24V brushless motors, which have the following advantages: no mechanical friction, lower operating noise, extended life, greater rotation speed, and higher power conversion efficiency.
