Benefits of Turnstiles for Security

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Commercial High Security ProjectsTurnstiles are a great way to maximize security in a perimeter of an area. You may see them at high security buildings or premises such as the National Security Agency in Fort Meade, Maryland. Hercules High Security has installed many turnstile security systems for specific businesses and agencies. Custom fencing is what we can offer for safekeeping of your property.

What is a turnstile security system?

A turnstile is a gate usually made of metal that connects to a fence and only allows one person at a time to enter. The horizontal bars that you see on turnstiles make up the revolving “door” on the gate. Some turnstile security systems have a place to swipe a badge to enter and others have a code. Facilities can also have a guard present to easily monitor the people coming in and going out of the premises.

There are various types of turnstile security systems to choose from.

  • The MST turnstile is one of the most commonly used gates. It reaches full height at 91.5” and automatically turns itself into place after someone has gone through it. This ensures that no one else will be able to sneak through. When one pushes softly on the gate, they may enter. When someone is trying to get in with force, the door becomes harder to open.
  • The MSTT is similar to the former model, but occupies less space and offers two turnstiles. One person can enter while another is exiting, creating a convenient flow of foot traffic. This model reduces the noise level of the metal locking in place.
  • The CLST turnstile gives a more inviting look and feel. The frame is aluminum and has the same benefits as the MST turnstile. The turnstile will integrate with just about any access control system as it is electronically controlled.
  • The CPST turnstile is eye-pleasing and usually used in high-profile facilities. It impresses visitors but still gives protection for the higher-ups inside the building. It has a clear side and arms that allow you to see what is on the other side. It is more affordable and secure than installing a revolving door. We may actually recommend this type of entrance for upscale hotels in the city.

Install a turnstile suited for your needs.

Hercules High Security can install a turnstile security system customized to what you want. Parts can be added to pre-existing structures for maximum security. We have installed hundreds of turnstiles varying in size, shape, and applications.

How Do I Add Extra Security Integration Measures to My High Security Fence?

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

A high security fence is a must-have for any facility looking to keep its inhabitants and its contents safe from intruders. Fences can be built that can withstand crashing cars, that are climb-proof, and more. But Hercules Fence knows that for your high security facility, there may sometimes be a reason to be even more cautious. That is why, with your fence installation, Hercules Fence can also provide security integration measures to keep you safe.

Guard Booths

For any official government building, it is paramount that those entering the grounds have a valid form of identification. The safety of the facility and the people inside depends on it. Sometimes, an intruder will not attempt to sneak in to your facility, but to enter through the main doors under false pretenses. Having a live guard, and not just an electronic system, can make all the difference; a guard will come to know people’s names and faces and will be alert to any suspicious behavior. But a guard cannot simply stand out in the open; to keep them safe and secure, a guard booth is a necessary component of security integration to provide.

Turnstiles

As another added form of protection, a turnstile can be an efficient and effective way of keeping out intruders. Turnstiles provide yet another barrier of security integration that any intruder would have to pass through, and they can be reinforced and customized to meet your specific security needs. Along with a guard booth, a turnstile is an essential part of your security system.

School Campus Turnstiles.

Do you need to enhance the public safety of a school campus?
