Optical Lanes & Turnstiles

Securely and efficiently allow authorized individuals to pass through quickly

Optical lanes or turnstiles are high-quality, intelligent, and technologically advanced security entry solutions used to allow, restrict, and track traffic into and out of a building. These security systems typically consist of a narrow passage or gate equipped with sensors and other electronic devices to detect and authorize the passage of individuals. They are often used in conjunction with physical access management credentials, such as key cards, biometric data, or passwords, to verify an individual’s identity and grant access.

These types of solutions may used in a variety of settings, including:

  • Public transportation: used in subway systems, airports, and other transportation facilities to control access to platforms or boarding areas.
  • Buildings and facilities: used to control access to office buildings, hospitals, schools, and other facilities.
  • Events: used at concerts, sporting events, and other large gatherings to control access to the venue.

Optical lanes or turnstiles are designed to be secure and efficient, allowing authorized individuals to pass through quickly while preventing unauthorized access. They are often used in conjunction with other security measures, such as security cameras and security guards, to help protect against unauthorized access.
