It's crowded and tight and everyone is headed to the same place: This pretty much describes the scene every day at swimming pools, cinemas and airports. Turnstiles are the clever solution for ensuring the ordered entry of large numbers of people at any facility. We at Wanzl 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. 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 wherever large crowds of people come together. Wanzl also took this fact into consideration when developing its turnstiles. The anti-panic feature in the Portec model makes it possible to open the hinged arms for permanent passage in both directions. Another practical service for users is a signal light mounted on the turnstiles that 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 extensive use. The varied turnstile product range is rounded out by the Sirio model, whose timeless design makes it ideal for modern building and facility environments in particular. All turnstiles are made of high-quality and durable materials such as solid steel or stainless steel casing with cast aluminium, which means nothing is going to break all that quickly or easily. Feel free to contact us if you're looking for turnstiles for your business or facility. We'll be happy to accommodate your individual wishes and requirements.
