What is a sliding gate turnstile?

Sliding Gate Turnstiles

A sliding gate turnstile is an effective contactless crowd control solution for upscale corporate lobbies, high-rise building entrances, luxury apartment complexes, universities, and anywhere autonomous entry and aesthetics are vital. Sliding gate pedestrian turnstile adopts a high-quality DC brushless motor and advanced positioning technology, ensuring the movement of the automatic turnstile in a fast, accurate, stable, and quiet way with low noise, low power consumption, and longer service life. In addition, it provides single-directional or bi-directional access and easily integrates any access control systems or device with dry contact output.

How does a sliding gate turnstile work?

Sliding turnstile gates have sliding flaps that slide open in a straight horizontal line and move in both directions. A barrier separating the secured area from the public area is created when the sliding flaps are closed. The wings completely retract into the cabinet when opened, allowing unobstructed passage. To ensure that only one person enters each approved credential at once, it is equipped with infrared sensors. When pedestrians present valid identification upon arrival, the optical sliding turnstile will open to allow unrestricted passage. To prevent illegal passage or tailgating attempts, the closure occurs immediately after passage or after a customizable holding-open period. Depending on the height of the sliding flaps, the opening and shutting times can be programmed. In case of power failure or in an emergency, the obstacles can be unlocked with a simple push to automatically open.

The characteristics of a sliding gate turnstile
1. Automatic Barrier Operation: It is a touchless turnstile outfitted with DC motors that automatically move obstacles out of the way in the desired direction to provide hands-free access. It must be able to work as a hand-free turnstile and automatically open and close without any physical user input from pedestrians.
2. Proper Social Distancing: Although such a touchless turnstile lane is completely autonomous, it is typical for businesses with turnstile access control systems at their entrances to have a security guard on duty to offer assistance when necessary, which is important to maintain proper social distance between the employees and the turnstile lane.
3. Contactless Credential Checking: Although it is a completely contactless device, in order to provide a hands-free access experience, it must be integrated with a touch-free credential-checking system, including Iris scanners, facial recognition software, temperature sensors, and proximity scanners

Can sliding gate turnstile be integrated with 3rd party access control systems?
Yes, it is compatible with a wide variety of access control systems by dry contact. Card pass, fingerprint/handprint reader, face recognition, barcode reader, thermal camera, and token applications can integrate with such access control turnstiles.

What will happen when the power is off and in an emergency situation?
It instantly automatically unlocks for free passage under emergency situations (power outages, fire, etc)

Can pedestrian sliding turnstile gates be used indoors and outdoors?
