SlimStile BA

SlimStile BA

Tripod Turnstile for Internal Installation*

The SlimStile BA, our stainless steel compact version, offers high operating reliability in a small casework for wall-mounted or pedestal installation, ideal for sites where space is an issue. On receiving a signal from the
access control system, or push button, it allows the passage of one person at a time. The status is shown on the led-way mode indicators, in entry and exit side. Passage in both directions is electronically controlled.

Available in Normally Closed (N/C) configuration to lock the mechanism until a valid authorisation signal is received, or available in Normally Open (N/O) configuration to lock the mechanism in the event of attempted unauthorised entry. The N/O configuration also allows reduced power consumption and increases the life of the mechanism and passage throughput speed. In case of emergency, the hub can freely rotate to allow an easier exit. You can also choose the drop arm option which automatically drops the horizontal arm to allow free passage. Led way mode indicators included as standard.

*External installation allowed under canopy.

Casework: 304 grade grained stainless steel
Casework lid: 304 grade grained stainless steel
Tripod hub: Cast aluminum with painted grey finish
Tripod arms: 38mm dia. 480mm 304 polished stainless steel


Electro-mechanical head mechanism:
• Positive locking action for one passage at a time
• Self-centering mechanism to ensure complete rotation into the home position
• Hydraulic damper to ensure smooth operation
• Anti-backup device to prevent reverse rotation once the mechanism has moved
60° from home

Power Failure / Fire Alarm

• Either one or both directions can be fail-safe (standard), i.e. rotates freely, or fail
lock, i.e. locks in the home position
• Fire alarm – emergency input. Input facility available for free voltage contact to
effect fail state
• Mechanism fail state will be the same as power failure choice
• Drop arm option: the horizontal arm drops to create a clear passage for


LL2001Lite microprocessor control logic:
• One input for opening/locking in each direction
• Two protected outputs controlling opening/locking
• Four protected outputs piloting way mode indicators
• Two protected outputs counting passage in ether directions
• Two OV output relays indicating availability of use or counting passage in either
• Two open collector NPN outputs to count passage or to indicate availability of use
in either direction or activate the optional drop arm feature
• Serial Port – RS485


• Surface mounted card reader drilling
• Way mode Indicator
• Electro-mechanical counter


Tripod TurnStiles can be placed as efficient access control devices for Government, retail, finance, telecommunications, banking, publishing, leisure and entertainment, petrochemicals, education, public toilets, etc.
