A compact, cost-effective entrance solution with low power consumption and high reliability.
Suitable for internal or external use in areas where there is a large and constant flow of people.
In order to regulate and control the flow of people into and out of buildings, Gunnebo offers a full range of turnstile solutions. We recognise the need for different solutions, depending on the level of security and freedom of movement required.
The main goal is to regulate the flow of people in the desired direction. In secure areas, such as offices or governmental departments, each
individual must be identified before entry is authorised. In sports stadia or airports, the entrance system must balance freedom of
movement with tight security. In other words, varying degrees of regulation and control, depending on location.

Tripod turnstiles are the traditional yet modern choice
Tripod turnstiles have been around almost as long as controlling access in high-traffic areas has been necessary. From public buildings of all shapes and sizes to private offices and even travelling fairs, everyone has encountered a tripod turnstile at some point in their life. Also known as baffle gates, waist-high or half-height turnstiles, these are one of the most affordable access control systems on the market today.
Tripod turnstiles get their names from the set of three rotating barrier arms that sit at waist height, and they are very effective at allowing only one person to pass at a time. They’re rugged, dependable and usually require very little maintenance. You can use a row of tripod turnstiles to form a multi-lane access control system that doesn’t slow down the flow of pedestrian traffic as people move from one area to another.
Tripod turnstiles are a deterrent to unauthorised entry
Tripod turnstiles are designed to be used in areas where there is adequate supervision or oversight from authorised personnel, as well as areas where there are little to no security risks. They vary in functionality and can be adapted to suit just about any project. This includes fully manual operation, added electronics that use card readers or biometric systems for access, as well as single or bi-directional operation.
They can eliminate the need to have attendants checking tickets or collecting fees at every entrance, and they also provide a fairly accurate way to count the number of pedestrians entering and leaving a facility. Another thing that makes tripod turnstiles so popular is that they can be easily customised to suit any décor style and can be integrated with any existing access control systems you may already have in place.
Benefits of tripod turnstiles
- They are a cost-effective visual deterrent against unauthorised access.
- They can help control the flow of people entering a building, thus assisting your guard force in keeping your facility safe and secure.
- They create a visual and psychological balance between welcoming guests and providing security for your facility.
- They make it possible to control the number of people passing through an entryway, as well as their direction of movement.
- It is easy to integrate tripod turnstiles with visitor management software, thus keeping a digital record of all guests inside your facilities – which is helpful in both emergency situations and for gathering visitor metrics.
- It is possible to integrate them with virtually any access solution you may currently have in place.
- They are robust and long-lasting due to their relatively simple operating mechanisms.
- They are easy to use for most people and have little or no safety risks with regard to operation. It would be necessary to provide alternative entry points for wheelchair users and other pedestrians with mobility issues.
