Accommodating those who use wheelchairs, while also maintaining adequate access control into business facilities, means selecting reliable access control products that provide wheelchair accessibility.
“Those with limited mobility may need a little more time and space, especially if they are using walking aids or a wheelchair. The Turnstar Dynamic Drop Arm Barrier affords simple and unhindered access to all users. Our cutting-edge design, which provides a wider entrance opening, simplifies access for users with disabilities, with the added benefit of providing a wider passage for users with bulky luggage, parents with children in push chairs and delivery drivers with trolleys. In general, the inclusion of a wide lane is a crucial requirement when planning your entrances,” says Craig Sacks, CEO of Turnstar Systems.
The width of a wheelchair is generally a minimum of 700 mm. This is accommodated in the Dynamic Drop Arm Barrier which has an opening width of 815 mm. This extra capacity gives adequate clearance for clear and unhindered passage. Previous drop arm barrier designs had a cabinet of approximately 375 mm wide, taking up a lot of space and offering only a limited width passage. “Today, our Dynamic drop arm barrier is 171 mm wide and offers an expansive 850 mm wide opening,” says Sacks.
“Reliability and durability of the barrier is provided by the carefully designed and engineered components, which include the SwiftDrive geared motor technology. Safety features include the intelligent collision detection for user protection and battery backup in the event of a power failure or load shedding,” says Sacks.
