A prefabricated turnstile canopy provide complete cover for turnstiles at all types of facilities. Adding a canopy will protect turnstiles from inclement weather especially if keycard readers or other sensitive access control equipment is included. Because these unit ship fully assembled installation can be completed with minimal impact to your schedule and operation.
Increase Security at Your Facility
Access into government or factory buildings needs to be strictly controlled for security reasons. This is where turnstiles come in. If your turnstile is outdoors and has equipment like key card readers and other access control equipment, a turnstile shelter provides additional protection from the weather.
A turnstile canopy can also prevent trespassers from climbing over turnstiles and gaining unauthorized access to your facility. The installation of additional steel tube frames under the shelter’s windows prevent sliding under the shelter to gain access to the facility. A must to help protect your employees, equipment, and buildings.
Quick, Easy Construction
Regardless of how limited the space is where your turnstile is located, the design of a turnstile canopy can be adapted to your specific application. Generally, a forklift is used for installation but a crane can also be used when the space around the site is limited. Construction is flexible and there is no need to alter the space. These canopies arrive fully constructed and are quickly installed by being bolted down on your new or existing concrete slab.
Construction options for turnstile canopies include:
- Add lighting so employees or security cameras will be able to better see who is entering and exiting through the turnstile.
- Standard fixed window glazing of 3/16 inch tempered safety glass can be tinted to reduce glare or replaced with optional polycarbonate glazing to resist breakage. All fixed window frames are maintenance free anodized aluminum.
