Turnstile Security Systems

Turnstile access control plays a vital role in improving the security of your company office or warehouse. With our range of high security turnstiles, security turnstile doors, ADA gates, and access control systems, you are guaranteed restricted access to all except your most trusted personnel with the required credentials or company proximity cards.

Our turnstile security systems have been specially designed to be both efficient and discriminatory; able to bar entry from tailgaters and unauthorized personnel.

Our models of turnstiles are built from the toughest combination of materials, with the composition varying according to the specific function. In areas where access control is your topmost priority, we provide turnstiles made from the toughest stainless or carbon steel.

In office buildings and transport terminals, however, we have found that a simpler combination of glass and concrete confers a modern look while retaining your security needs.

Turnstile Gates

One of the more understated functions of turnstile gate systems is their ability to serve as ADA compliant gateways for individuals in wheelchairs.

These gate security systems comply with the recommended lane width of 32 inches or larger, which opens on a hinge for maximum convenience for individuals in wheelchairs. When used together with high security turnstiles, they offer the best easy accessibility to qualified personnel in addition to solid protection against threats.

If your business deals with the routine transport of medium to large-sized items as seen in fulfillment centers and warehouses, and you have concerns about how you can maintain security without clogging up your gateways, then fear not. At BSS, we offer custom-built security turnstile ADA gates that can accommodate your needs without compromising on security.

Waist High Security Turnstiles

You’ve probably come across waist-high security turnstiles at airports or train stations. These multiple use waist-high contraptions are made from a single bar of metal with three arms that rotate to let passengers through one at a time. As you may have guessed, these are waist height in design mostly for interior use.

When combined into a chain, they can be used to form a sturdy and efficient multi-lane access control system that still manages to be accessible to individuals with disabilities.

Waist High Gates

These can be used either in conjunction with our waist high turnstiles or alone as a standalone security measure. Commonly found in transit stations, these differ from security turnstiles by the simple fact that they are hinged security swing gates, typically made from glass, stainless steel, or carbon steel barrier attached to a post.

Waist high turnstiles offer more access and are therefore typically used in areas where you want to ensure security while allowing entry to a free traffic flow of individuals bearing packages or people with disabilities.
