Turnstiles today offer a lot more options that just the traditional three arm turnstiles that are most commonly found in theme parks and stadiums. The options available today offer a wide variety of functionality and design from the bulky, traditional turnstile to the sleeker, slimmer, more aesthetically appealing and are growing in popularity at colleges and universities across the country.

Optical turnstiles have a crisp, upscale design and blend in with the modern recreational centers that are the center of many campuses. Many of these turnstiles can even be customized to match with colors and other décor. Logos and mascot images can be added to clear panels and LED illumination is sometimes added for decorative purposes. It’s important, however, to remember that the most important thing when choosing a turnstile is of course functionality. Turnstiles must provide the security you’re looking for above all else.

Campus turnstiles can have a variety of functions so it’s important to evaluate what the true need for the turnstile is.  Turnstiles can be used to track traffic to the area or can be integrated with student access cards to the area.

As with any place looking to add turnstiles it’s important to work with a professional who can help you chose the right turnstile for your budget, interior décor, and security needs.  If we can help you navigate the turnstile investment, call Avant-Garde Systems.
