Details matter

Description

Superior construction
The MST full height maximum security turnstile cuts no corners. Unlike competitive models that use individual parts that must be bolted together during installation, the integral sections of the MST are delivered fully welded, creating a solid and secure product. Details matter, especially when manufacturing a full height security turnstile that will stand the test of time.
 
Key Features:
  • Simplified integration to access control and visitor management systems
  • Flexible credential reader attachment options allows use of existing readers familiar to users
  • Dedicated fire input and various other available I/O
  • Override controls for operational flexibility
  • Easily change turnstile passage mode
  • Speed control provides a safe, controlled rotation and smoothly self-centers rotating arms
  • Anti-entrapment design
  • Free egress in emergencies or loss of power
  • Optional heel / arm guards slide over select rotating arms
  • Welded steel construction with no exposed bolts or fasteners
  • Stainless steel top channel cover provided regardless of finish
  • High quality sealed and covered bearings
  • Splined connection between the rotating section and top channel assembly provides a precision fit that minimizes play
  • Full-featured turnstile controller protects against electrical surges and is conformal coated to enhance weatherization protection
  • Suitable for outdoor environments
  • Best in class security
  • Designed for long term continuous usage
  • One-to-one passage control deters tailgating
  • Easy to install
  • Single or bi-directional control
  • Electric lock control and manual versions
  • Independent fail-safe or fail-secure operation
  • Speed control to provide a controlled, safe rotation
  • Automatic self-centering prevents over or under travel of rotating section
  • Low maintenance
    • Secure and safe
    • Intuitive for users and staff
    • Integrates easily with access control systems
    • Can be operated in unattended applications
    • Controlled rotation minimizes physical abuse, banging and wear on components
    • Simple to change between fail-safe and fail-lock operation
Unsurpassed facility entrance control
The electric model provides bi-directional access control in conjunction with a facility access control system or any device that can provide a dry contact output (such as a push button). The turnstile comes with attachment points for card readers and each rotation direction can be independently configured as fail-safe or fail-lock. In operation, when a valid credential is presented, the turnstile unlocks, allowing a single controlled rotation in the requested direction. Unauthorized entries, or attempts to tailgate on an authorized entry, are deterred.
 
Both the manual and electric lock versions of the MST full height turnstile have built in override controls for additional flexibility. Passage directions can be set for free passage, controlled passage or locked down.
 
Secured entry control applications
  • Perimeter control | Employee and visitor access control | Time and attendance integration
  • Fence line security | Parking lot access | One way exit control | Unattended entry points
  • Simplified integration
Employee Access and Visitor Management
Integrating the MST full height turnstile into your facility is quick and easy. The MST integrates with virtually any access control or visitor management system and accommodates a wide array of credential readers. A dedicated fire system input is provided and passage outputs can be monitored to validate passage after activation, or to provide accurate people counting. The result is a full height turnstile that thousands of facilities worldwide rely upon for superior access control and visitor management.
 
Built-in Safety
MST full height turnstiles provide safe and secure operation. Built-in speed control controls the arm rotation speed by self-adjusting to the pushing force of the user. Even when a user pushes hard on the turnstile arms, the speed of the arm rotation is controlled. This increases safety and reduces the chance of a rapidly spinning rotating section catching a user’s heel. In addition to controlling the rotation speed, the full height turnstile’s speed control also greatly reduces the possibility that the rotating section will kickback toward the user at the conclusion of the rotation. After each passage, the rotating section of the full height turnstile smoothly returns to the home position and locks in place, ready for the next user. The unique cam design of the MST also makes it mechanically impossible for a user to get locked inside the turnstile.
 
In secured applications the MST is typically configured for fail-lock in the entrance direction and fail-safe in the exit direction. When power is removed from the turnstile this prevents people from entering but allows personnel to exit. Turnstiles configured for fail-lock in the exit direction can also provide free egress using local key override controls. Other ordering options are available and changing between fail-lock and fail-safe is easily accomplished in the field. A dedicated input for fire systems also provides free egress in the event of emergencies.
 
All weather arm and heel pads are available to slip over select arms on the rotating section of the full height turnstile for additional safety.
 
The MST full height turnstile has many available options, including:
  • User notification lights to provide status of presented credential (accepted/not accepted)
  • Turnstile open/closed status lights
  • Card reader attachment plates
  • Battery backup
  • Lock arm monitors (provides notification when turnstile is unlocked)
  • Enhanced weatherization protection for demanding environments
  • Padded heel / arm protective sleeves
  • Copper arm sleeves to reduce surface life and transmission of harmful bacteria and viruses
Certifications
The MST full height security turnstile is independently tested and certified by UL, conforming to both UL and CSA standards. It is also CE marked.
