Turnstiles and swing gatesCrowded spaces with everyone is headed to the same place – these situations arise every day at swimming pools, cinemas and airports. Turnstiles are the clever solution for ensuring that large numbers of people can enter in an orderly fashion. At Wanzl, we make it easy for your customers or employees to enter your premises, and we offer a wide range of different turnstiles for public facilities and large businesses.
The turnstile models come in two basic versions: motor-driven and electro-mechanical. In the motor-driven models like the EasyGo turnstile, entry is achieved by pushing the arms out of the way manually. The release mechanism is triggered via a card reader, a coin operation device, a control panel, a ticketing system or another method in accordance with individual requirements. In the Portec electro-mechanical variant, there is no contact with the turnstile arms. Instead, these move automatically when entry has been approved. A highly modern LC display can be used to program various settings for individual and group entry and for counting the number of people passing through.
No need to panic with state-of-the-art turnstiles
Panic is always a possibility when there is an emergency situation in places with large numbers of people. This is one of the factors that Wanzl considered when developing its turnstiles. The anti-panic feature in the Portec model makes it easy to open the hinged arms for continuous passage in both directions.
Another practical service for users is a visual signal mounted on the turnstiles which indicates when the arms have been released and pedestrians can walk through. This ensures people won’t miss the release or try to walk through the turnstiles before the release is triggered.
Turnstiles from Wanzl can be adapted to any building management system
All of the innovative turnstiles from Wanzl are extremely safe and they also require little maintenance, even with intensive use. The varied range of turnstile products is rounded off by the Sirio model, which has a timeless design that makes it ideal for modern environments in particular. All turnstiles are made from high-quality and durable materials such as solid steel or stainless steel casing with cast aluminium, which means nothing will break quickly or easily. Feel free to contact us if you’re looking for turnstiles for your business or facility. We’ll be happy to work with your individual wishes and requirements.
