Turnstiles


Newgate turnstiles have evolved over the years to our latest models incorporating our advanced Anti Pass-back technology.

Our security turnstiles are available in three styles; the full height single or twin rotor turnstiles or our half height tripod model. All our turnstiles are provided in a powder coated or stainless steel finish, with a wide range of colours to choose from. Accessories such as canopy, downlighting and fire alarm override are all available, to suit each turnstile, as applicable.

You will find our turnstiles installed in many of the UK’s major airports and car manufacturing plants, providing them and other companies with the perfect pedestrian access solution.

What to consider when choosing the right turnstile


The size of the entrance

The size of the entrance to your premises will determine how many turnstiles you need. The larger the entrance, the more turnstiles you will require however additional posts can be added to fill the space if the amount of footfall doesn’t require multiple turnstiles.

The type of entrance also has to be considered, as full height turnstiles tend to suit outdoor entrances better (in the example of a football stadium) however indoor crowd control is better suited to half height or tripod turnstiles (in train stations or airports for example).

How many people are expected to use the turnstile?

The amount of through-traffic during peak times needs to be considered when choosing which turnstile you need, as different turnstiles have different throughput rates, based on the speed of which users enter the premises.

Most turnstiles have a flow ratio of 10 people per minute which is fine for most entrances, however if your premises experiences a large number of visitors during peak times, then a faster flow rate (or multiple turnstiles) may be required.

Direction of through-traffic

Our security turnstiles have the option to rotate in both directions, so it’s important to consider the direction of the through-traffic. If the turnstile is required at a specific entry or exit point then rotation in a single direction will be adequate.

If users enter and exit your premises through the same access point, a turnstile that rotates in both directions might be a more suitable option.

Choosing the right finish

Our turnstiles come in a range of finishes from standard powder coating in a variety of colours to a galvanised or stainless steel finish.

Where the turnstile is located plays a big part in choosing the finish, as turnstiles outside might be liable to rust or damage if the correct finish isn’t applied.

If your turnstile is located inside then it might not need a heavy duty finish; a decorative finish in your corporate colours may be more suitable.
