Increase Security at Your Facility.
Access into government or factory buildings need to be strictly controlled for security reasons, which is where turnstiles come in. If your turnstile is outdoors and has equipment like key card readers and other access control equipment, a turnstile shelter will protect it from being damaged by the weather.
Turnstile shelters also prevent trespassers from climbing over the turnstiles and gaining unauthorized access to your grounds. We also install an additional steel tube frame under the shelter’s windows to prevent anyone from sliding under the shelter to get onto the property. A must to help protect your employees, equipment, and buildings.
Quick, Easy Construction
No matter how limited the space where your turnstile is, the custom design of our turnstile shelters can be adapted to make it fit. A forklift is typically used installation but a crane can also be used when the space around the site is very limited. That way, construction is flexible and there is no need to alter the space. Turnstile shelters arrive fully constructed and are quickly installed by being bolted down on your new or existing concrete slab.
Construction options for turnstile shelters include:
- Add lighting so employees or security cameras will be able to better see who is coming through the turnstile, increasing security.
- Standard fixed window glazing of 3/16 inch tempered safety glass can be tinted to reduce glare or replaced with optional polycarbonate glazing to resist breakage. All fixed window frame are maintenance free anodized aluminum.
