Turnstile Models

Alvarado EDM Turnstile


The EDM is a motorized waist-high turnstile that provides single or bi-directional access control.

The motorized arm rotation provides a very comfortable passage experience for patrons.
Upon loss of power or fire system input, the horizontal arm automatically drops to provide a clear exit passageway. 



The SW1000 is an attractive motorized pedestrian gate that is an ideal product to provide disabled access in conjunction with our
waist-high or optical turnstiles.

The SW1000 integrates easily with access control systems and can be activated by entry control devices such as a push button installed at a guard or entry desk.

The EDC provides bi-directional access control in conjunction with an access control system, or any device that can provide a dry contact output (such as a push button).
Designed to provide years of trouble free operation, our waist high turnstiles rotate smoothly and self-center when returning to the home position.

Benefits & Designs

Improved Security

Turnstiles are a physical asset which add value to your building's security practices.


Full-Height Turnstiles are an effective measure for perimeter security.

- Deter

- Deny

- Detect

- Defend

- Delay

Keep unauthorised persons out and only allow those with a valid credential in. 

Protecting your staff and your assets.

Improved Health and Safety

As a PCBU, under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, you must ensure you have measures in place to keep staff safe while they are at work.

Turnstiles are what's called true 1:1 Entry.

Meaning everyone who enters is accounted for, therefore you now know who is on site.

By knowing who has entered and exited the facility, you now have critical data and information in emergency situations.

Access Control Integration

Turnstiles integrate with all technologies to provide an automatic entry point.

Whether your building is using;

- RFID / Access Cards

- Bluetooth Mobile 

- Biometric Finger Print Readers

- Facial Recognition

- Metal Detection

Integrate with time and attendance systems for hourly employees.

Drawings and Layouts

Turnstiles  and complementary pedestrian gates can be configured into various layouts to suit your building access requirements.

A single Turnstile can be configured and used for  both entry and exit.

Multiple Turnstiles can be used and located around the facility for distribution of entry.

Portable and relocatable platforms and baseplates can also be used to minimise installation and cabling requirements.
