Access Control for Events and Venues: Turnstiles and Gates

Access Control for Events and Venues: Turnstiles and Gates

Access control is an essential aspect of security for events and venues. One of the most common ways to control access is through the use of turnstiles and gates. These access control barrier systems are designed to keep unwanted individuals out while allowing authorised personnel to enter.

In this blog, we will discuss the different types of Tensor Access Control Turnstiles and Gates available, as well as their benefits.

Types of Access Control Turnstiles

There are several different types of access control turnstiles that Tensor offer, each with its own unique features and benefits. The most common types include:

  • Full-height turnstiles: These are the tallest type of turnstile, often found at the entrance of stadiums and other large venues. They provide a high level of security and are difficult to climb over.
  • Half-height turnstiles: These turnstiles are shorter than full-height turnstiles and are typically found in office buildings and other commercial spaces. They are easier to climb over than full-height turnstiles but still provide a good level of security.
  • Barrier turnstiles: These turnstiles are similar to half-height turnstiles but include an additional barrier arm that drops down to block access if someone attempts to enter without proper authorisation.
  • Glass Turnstiles: These turnstiles offer high security, visibility, and style for corporate lobbies. They're versatile and can be used in manned or unmanned settings. Our glass turnstiles come in both half-height and full-height options to suit your needs.

Benefits of Turnstiles and Gates

  • Control access: The most obvious benefit of turnstiles and gates is that they allow you to control who enters and exits a venue. This is especially important for events and venues that have a high volume of people.
  • Deter illegal activities: By controlling access, turnstiles and gates can help deter illegal activities such as ticket scalping, smuggling, and theft.
  • Enhance security: Turnstiles and gates can also enhance security by providing an additional layer of protection against unwanted individuals entering a venue.
