Speedlanes, Speedgates & Turnstiles

Convenient, fast & secure access

Speedlanes, speedgates & turnstiles access control systems are an ideal crowd control solution, allowing you to effectively manage and monitor the flow of people in to and out of your building. Speedlanes and speedgates provide convenient, fast, and secure access, and are compatible with a wide range of access control systems, maximising security without the need for a physical guard. Turnstiles also integrate with access control systems and come in half height and full height variations, with half height being our most popular solution. Both offer a cost-effective means of managing access. For areas that require balustrade infill to close off gaps, we can provide glass balustrades to complement speedlanes and speedgate turnstiles.


Bespoke solutions to suit your specific requirements

When planning and developing a speedlanes, speedgate or turnstile access control solution for you, aspects we’ll consider include footfall, aesthetics, security levels, system height, DDA compliance and budget. Our solutions include:

Efficient Access: Our speed gates offer an impressive 0.2 second open and close time, allowing quick and secure movement into or out of the building ffor authorised users.

Modern Aesthetics: Our Speed Gate solutions feature a striking contemporary design with LED strip lighting and a solid brushed stainless steel body container. Each component is painstakingly polished to a high-end finish, bringing a touch of modern urban elegance to your space.

Built To Last: Our Speed Gates are built to resist strong usage and footfall.

Customizable sizing: Glass heights are customisable, ranging from 900mm to 1800mm, assisting in the prevention of unauthorised access. Widths are also customisable to suit a variety of users, from the standard 600mm to larger openings suitable for wheelchair users or those carrying baggage for example, accommodating 900mm or 1200mm arms.

Strict Control: Our Tripod Turnstile solutions are popular due to their control over user trailing, ie. only one person can pass through the rotating arms at a time, reducing the risk of unauthorised users entering or exiting closely behind.

Durable design:  Our Tripod Turnstiles are manufactured from sturdy, rigid, anti-rust, waterproof, and weather-resistant materials, making them an appropriate solution for both indoor and outdoor applications.

System integration: Our Tripod Turnstiles can integrate with a number of third-party access control systems, including RFID and biometric based systems for example. They can also support a wide range of external device solutions, including displays, counters, readers, face recognition systems, push buttons, card collectors, and RFID wristbands.

Emergency Access: In the event of an emergency situation or power outage, the Tripod Turnstile’s horizontal arms will automatically drop down, facilitating quick and unrestricted passage to safety for building occupants.

Versatility: Our Tripod Turnstile solution is ideal for high traffic areas such as schools, factories, libraries, cinemas, gyms, parks and more.

Space-Saving Elegance: The cylindrical shape of the cylinder turnstile system has a notably slim 168mm diameter and requires minimal space for installation making it the ideal solution for narrow entry-ways.

Customisable dimensions: The single door configuration can be extended to a generous 900mm width, accommodating different user needs, including those with wheelchairs and individuals carrying large luggage.

Efficient Group Passage: When two doors work in tandem, the cylinder turnstile can support an expansive 1800mm width. This impressive capacity allows large groups of people to pass through simultaneously, eliminating wait times and queues.

Modern Aesthetic: One of the main features of glass gates is that they offer a modern and sleek look. The glass material provides an elegant appearance to create an upscaled and sophisticated atmosphere. This feature will add to your space’s overall appeal and can impress clients, visitors, and employees.

Access control: Glass gates provide a secure and reliable way to manage access to a building or specific areas within. They typically require a security card or biometric authentication for entry, which helps restrict access to unauthorised personnel. This feature ensures that only authorized personnel can access the premises, reducing the risk of theft or harm to people or property. High glass options can reach up to 1800mm in height and can prevent unauthorised users climbing over to gain access. Additionally the open / close speed can facilitate 45-55 people per minute flow rate, making it an ideal solution for high traffic applications.

Durable and Low Maintenance: Glass gates are made from high-quality glass material and sturdy hardware, which makes them durable and long-lasting. They do not require frequent maintenance, making them an ideal solution for high-traffic areas, including busy commercial buildings, residential developments, and public facilities.

Energy Efficient: Glass gates can also be energy-efficient by allowing natural light to flow into a room, minimising the need for artificial light. Depending on the glass specification, glass gates can also reduce the need for heating and air conditioning, saving energy costs in the long run.

Controlled Access: Security turnstiles provide a controlled entry and exit system, allowing only authorised individuals to pass through. This feature helps in preventing unauthorised access to restricted areas, enhancing overall security and reducing the risk of intrusions or security breaches.

Biometric Integration: Many security turnstiles can be integrated with biometric authentication systems such as fingerprint or facial recognition, adding an extra layer of security. This ensures that only authorised individuals with registered biometric data can gain access, making it difficult for someone to use stolen or forged access credentials.

Traffic Management and Crowd Control: Security turnstiles effectively manage the flow of pedestrian traffic, especially in high-traffic areas such as airports, stadiums, or busy office buildings. By controlling the entry and exit points, turnstiles help in avoiding overcrowding and congestion, maintaining order, and ensuring a smooth flow of foot traffic. This feature improves overall efficiency and reduces the risk of accidents or stampedes during busy periods.

Real-Time Monitoring and Reporting: Many security turnstiles can be integrated with access control systems that provide real-time monitoring and reporting capabilities. This allows security personnel to have visibility into the number of people passing through, track specific individuals, and generate detailed reports on access patterns. Enhancing situational awareness, identifying potential security risks, and improving overall security management.

Enhanced Security: Waist-high turnstiles provide a physical barrier that effectively controls access to a specific area. By only allowing one person to pass through at a time, these turnstiles prevent unauthorised individuals from entering restricted areas.

Efficient Traffic Flow: Waist-high turnstiles are designed to facilitate the smooth flow of pedestrian traffic. With their narrow passage width and single-lane configuration, these turnstiles help manage the movement of people in high-traffic areas. By preventing overcrowding and maintaining a disciplined flow, they optimise pedestrian traffic flow and prevent congestion.

Deterrence Against Unauthorised Entry: The physical presence of waist-high turnstiles acts as a visual deterrent to would-be intruders. Knowing that they cannot easily bypass the turnstile, potential intruders are dissuaded from attempting unauthorised access.

Integration and Scalability: Waist-high turnstiles can be seamlessly integrated with various access control systems, such as RFID card readers or biometric scanners, to enhance security and streamline entry processes. Additionally, these turnstiles can be easily configured to meet the specific needs of different environments, making them scalable for various applications. Whether it’s a small office building or a large stadium, waist-high turnstiles can adapt to different settings and security requirements.
