Optical turnstiles with swing arm barriers

Bidirectional swinging arm barriers intelligently control traffic flow while optimizing traffic throughput.

Safe. An infrared detection matrix monitors the area near the barrier; if an object is detected in the path of the barriers, they slow to a crawl until the obstruction is removed. Soft-throw barriers move with negligible force. In an emergency, anyone may activate the barriers with a firm push; in a power failure, the barriers can be gently pushed out of the way.

Smart. Barriers always move away from the authorized pedestrian. Barriers stay open while additional authorized people walk through--even if they are walking in the opposite direction.

Secure. Quarter-inch tailgate detection offers excellent protection against intruders. Barriers close very quickly as soon as a person has cleared the barriers' path, deterring would-be tailgaters. Sensors catch attempts to crawl under or vault the barriers.

Sophisticated. Twenty four sensors create a dense 96 beam detection net. Compact motors offer smooth, silent barrier operation.

Certain. False alarm rate is negligible; detects and ignores briefcases, purses, dollies, walkers, and guide dogs.

Programmable. Configure each direction for card access or free passage on-the-fly.

Skinny. Slim housings offer the protection of a barrier while fitting in tight corridors and maintaining an open look. Dimensions make it suitable for upgrades to existing sites that use typical competitors' units.

Speedy. Offers real-world throughput of 30 people per minute.

Accessible. Meets ADA at a 36" lane width.

Reliable. Designed for 100% uptime. Sensors are tolerant of severe misalignment, and never need to be re-aligned.

Maintainable. Requires only a simple greasing every six months.
