Featuring a sleek architectural design with 304 Stainless Steel, our drop-arm turnstiles provide unsurpassed beauty and performance. TURNSTILES.us delivers the latest in optical sensing technology and builds each unit with great craftsmanship. These units use sensors to monitor building entrances. They allow for people to move through quickly while preventing the entry of those without credentials. Features include anti-passback, anti-tailgating, anti-crawl over, integrated lighting of the glass and doors, and the option for your company’s logo to be etched into the glass. Multiple alarm options and speech synthesis output allow this turnstile to communicate with the user with phrases like Please enter – or – Access denied, please step out of the lane.

Standard passage width and ADA compliant lanes are available. Customizable reader mounts can be added to accommodate the reader of your choice, including biometric readers, contactless card readers, and multiple other devices. Upgrade to unique metals such as copper, patina/copper, and patina/stainless steel.

Installation by Factory Authorized Installers will ensure your investment will be up and running in a timely and professional manner. A fitted base platform is also available to non-invasively secure the units and conceal wiring. Outlaw Optical lanes offer a flexible range of passage widths up to 38″, and platforms meet the required ADA slope. Cosmetic and technical features can be customized to fit your location and integrate with EntraPASS Access Control Systems.
