Smart card systems

It is possible to impose greater securtiy and control by installing turnstile access control at the main entry points into a building. These can take the form of mid height, full height or even monitored versions for monitoring anti-pass-back routines. Ansador prides itself in having installed many such systems in London and the home counties.

Controlling access into the main or rear entrance of a building is key to providing a secure environment. Choosing the correct and most appropriate turnstile can be difficult. Ansador will provide you with advice to ensure the correct choice of turnstile.

Our technical surveyors will provide advice on the most appropriate type of model to choose from for your particular application. Call 0207 228 7777 for a site survey and no cost estimate.
Here are a few questions and pointers to choosing the best and most effective type of turnstile:

  • How many people use the building? As a rough guide you can assume one lane will handle about 150 to 200 people assuming they are set up to be bi-directional.
  • You can choose from tripod style, drop arm type, swing gate, pass agate in both stainless steel, glass or even mid steel.
  • What sort of environment is It.? If it’s a construction site then we suggest the more functional trip type in a powdered coated finish.
  • Would you like the turnstiles to fail to an open position on a fire alarm activation?
  • How do you want the them to operate? Usually by card, or even finger print recognition.
  • Would you like to be alerted if somebody tries to tailgate through the turnstile? Some of the systems offer this feature and can provide an impulse to an local alarm, CCTV camera or pager perhaps.
  • Would you like reception to be able override the system with a remote push button?

Access control

All our Turnstiles can be interfaced with a great variety of access controls – keypads, card/fob access, remote transmitters or number-plate recognition systems to name a few. Induction loops are also extremely popular for automatically triggering Turnstiles to open, giving an approaching person free exit or entry. The Turnstiles can also be programmed to open and close at pre-determined times of the day. To screen and allow visitor access, we offer a wide-range of intercom systems to integrate with our Turnstiles. These can be audio-only, audio-visual, hard-wired or telephone-based.

We take great care to ensure that all our Turnstile installations comply with the British Standards and pose minimal risk to pedestrians and vehicles. This is achieved by installing a variety of safety beams and induction loops that detect the presence of pedestrians and vehicles passing near the Turnstile. Added to this, the Turnstile have deceleration on closing, rubber profiles and sensitive anti-crush detectors.
