Typically if you’re looking for a turnstile option providing a high level of security at the entrance or the exit of a building, full height turnstiles are a great option. Full height turnstiles are a floor-to-ceiling secured entry solution. They operate much like a revolving door, allowing one user to pass through at a time while utilizing a locking mechanism which prevents unwanted entry if access credentials are not met.

Typical applications

Full height turnstiles can be used indoors or outdoors in the right conditions. Typically for an outdoor installation we recommend installing a roof unit as well, to prolong the life of your investment. 

These turnstiles are often used in the following locations: 

  • Distribution Centers
  • Sports and Event Venues
  • Military Bases
  • Amusement Parks
  • Public Transportation Terminals
