New drop arm barrier provides unimpeded access

Issue 1 2021 Access Control & Identity Management

With the commencement of the tertiary education 2021 academic year imminent, it is important to provide a physical access method that allows safe and unimpeded traffic of students and lecturers at facilities.

The Turnstar Dynamic Drop Arm Barrier is ideal for indoor applications such as universities, libraries, health clubs and office reception areas, where it provides high levels of security for medium-volume pedestrian access requirements.

The sleek aesthetics of the barrier make it a perfect choice for any environment and the no-touch operation means that users can rest assured that their health will not be compromised by the accidental transfer of germs and other unwanted substances. Together with its larger-than-normal entry opening of 850 mm, the barrier’s touchless feature is a benefit for special-needs users who may be unable to access areas where physical contact with a barrier would normally be required.

Boasting a small footprint, the drop arm barrier is a popular choice because of its ability to integrate with any type of access control system, and because of its two optical sensors, which provide for safe passage of users.
