Tech Feature: Access Control Turnstiles by Automatic Systems

This month we reviewed Access Control Turnstiles, and the role they can play in your facility.  From this Guide to Access Control Turnstiles to these tips on How To Choose the Right Access Control Turnstile for your Facility, Bulldog Fire and Security has you covered through every step of the process.

Bulldog Fire and Security have been installing Access Control Turnstiles in Southwestern Ontario for 19 years, and we continue to be impressed by the great selection of products from Automatic Systems.  In this article, we will look at two specific applications: the TRS 370 Full Height Turnstile, as well as the SlimLane security entrance lanes.

TRS 370 Full Height Turnstile

The TRS 370 Full Height Turnstiles by Automatic Systems are primarily used outdoors as part of a perimeter security system, and can commonly be found at sporting facilities, industrial sites, and airports.  A full height turnstile is a basic but effective method to control access into your facility.  The TRS 370 averages a throughput of 15 people per minute and has an incredible lifespan with a MCBF of 1 million cycles.  One of our favourite features is that it is compatible with most access control systems and provides the user with many configurations for passage management.  The structure is made of rust resistant galvanized steel that is suitable for intensive operation under harsh weather conditions.

Construction Highlights

  • 3-arm mobile obstacle. Each arm is a comb made of steel tubes attached to a rotating wheel disc.
  • Fixed panel enables single passage without the need of supervision.
  • Control board access through integrated keyboard and LCD screen or Modbus link with remote control.
  • Galvanized mechanical parts

The SlimLane also comes with an industry leading 5 year warranty and is UL 2593 certified.This model is a great solution for banks, government, and office buildings.
