Tripod turnstilesalso called tripod turnstile gates or waist-height turnstiles, are made of stainless steel in a modern style, providing secure, elegant, and modern-looking solutions for such applications where aesthetics and security are of the utmost importance. As the most aesthetically pleasing crowd control solutions, such pedestrian turnstiles are the economical and safe way to restrict unauthorized entry to secured areas.
Tripod turnstile gates automatically lock in the home position when passing is complete or after the predetermined time, and any incursions or attempts at tailgating will sound the alarm. They unlock and release the passage after identified verification. When a fire system input is received, they lower their horizontal arm to create clear departure pathways, and when the signal is deleted, they resume normal functioning.
Such automatic tripod turnstiles use cutting-edge motor and control technologies to enable rapid, silent, regulated, and smooth bar rotation while significantly reducing the impact of external forces. Visitor management systems and facility access control can be easily integrated into a variety of verification methods, including RFID scanning, QR code reading, and facial recognition.
Additionally, tripod gate turnstiles are the best pedestrian access control solutions to secure entrances with high pedestrian flow, such as scenic locations, large venues, communities, stations, docks, enterprises, and other scenarios. Tripod gate turnstiles provide bi-directional access control and are designed for outdoor use without shelter.
With excellent production and R & D capabilities, the Jayda company manufactures and supplies a variety of tripod turnstile gates with variable prices and designs for use in various applications. In the meanwhile, we are putting a lot of effort into creating updated tripod turnstiles with fashionable designs each year, as well as offering customization as per clients' needs.

What is a tripod turnstile gate used for?
A tripod turnstile gate is an access control turnstile that comprises three rotating arms, a chassis, and a mechanism. It offers deterrent automated entry control for heavily used areas. It uses precise movement position control to ensure that it operates more accurately and steadily. Made of stainless steel in a contemporary form, it offers a safe, stylish, and fashionable option for both indoor and outdoor applications. On the other hand, it makes access control and visitor management systems integration simpler, making it an ideal crowd control solution for any location that needs effective crowd management. It also slows down pedestrian traffic flow to enable closer monitoring of entry by security guards.
How does a tripod turnstile gate work?
A tripod turnstile gate is an ideal entry control solution for many applications with high levels of pedestrian traffic when they enter restricted areas. It is always integrated with various access control systems to customize turnstile access control systems as required. When users pass through the turnstile, they scan their valid bar codes or cards, and the electronic verification system will verify and send a signal to the control circuit, the bars rotate allowing access to the enclosed area. Such waist-high turnstiles can be configured for one-way (in either direction, blocking access from the opposite side) or two-way access. In emergencies, the automatic panic break-out bar is unlocked to facilitate evacuation.
The types of tripod turnstile gates
Tripod turnstile gates can be categorized into 3 types based on how they operate;
Fully automatic tripod turnstile gate:it is outfitted with a brushless motor for operation and movement control. After receiving a valid open signal, its arms will rotate in the open direction for a predetermined angle. After the user gives a slight push, the arms will continue to revolve automatically in the open direction. When powered off, the arm will automatically lower, and the arm will automatically rise when powered on
Semi-automatic tripod turnstile gate: it is equipped with electromagnets to control the operation. After receiving a valid open signal, the electromagnet causes the unlocking arm to unlock. Next, the release lever spins in a single direction, and the users lightly push the arm to gain entry. When powered off, the arm will automatically lower; when the power is turned on, the arm will be raised manually. After swiping their cards, users must pull the lever to gain admission.
Mechanic tripod turnstile gate:it is made of only mechanical parts; it has no electrical components. Without waiting for the access control system to send an open signal, the users gently push the brake lever to move through the passage. Free passage in one direction can be controlled by the automatic positioning and reset system, while the other direction is locked.
How about the tripod turnstile gates operating during a power outage or emergency?
Our tripod turnstile gates are equipped with inputs for receiving an alarm signal, and when an emergency alert or button is engaged, it immediately unlocks. The horizontal bar automatically lowers in an emergency or in the event of a power outage without obstructing the escape, and it may be manually raised again after the emergency signal has been restored.
Can the tripod turnstile gate be integrated with the third-party access control system?
Yes, the tripod turnstile gate integrates easily with facility access control and visitor management systems through standard dry contact inputs and outputs.
What benefits do tripod turnstile gates offer?
1. They can effectively manage only one person passing at a time due to their relatively high anti-tailgating design;
2. To provide a cost-effective operation, a lane is formed by a single tripod turnstile gate;
3. They are very compatible with a variety of verification tools, security systems, etc.;
4. They are simple to operate due to their widespread use and straightforward designs
