Waist Height Tripod Turnstile With Drop Down Arm | Automatic Systems



The TR 491 tripod turnstiles efficiently guide high-volume throughput. With the possibility of indoor or outdoor installation, the turnstiles are equipped with an anti-panic system that makes the horizontal arm blocking the passage drop in the case of an emergency evacuation or power cut.


Main Benefits :


. Bi-directional turnstile made especially for quick access control in areas with high traffic but limited space

. An anti-panic system moves the arm from the horizontal to vertical position, thereby completely freeing the lane in the case of an emergency evacuation

. Non-removable stainless steel arms to prevent vandalism

. Durable, corrosion-resistant, heavy-duty mechanism for extended service life


Other advantages :


. Serious Security

. Mechanical locking against infractions for increased security and greater turnstile durability

. Compact turnstile with arms that do not encroach the walkway


. Durable & Reliable

. Covers and outer side panels made from superior-quality stainless steel for exceptional durability

. Sturdy, corrosion-resistant and heavy-duty mechanism for extended service life


. Ergonomics & User Protection

. Adjustable-pressure hydraulic shock absorbers for silent, smooth rotation and a progressive slowing down of the arm rotation

. Orientation pictograms to facilitate throughput


. Easy Installation

. Front and rear sections specially designed to integrate the selected access control system

. Many configurations covering all possible pedestrian access control scenarios


Applications :


As an access-control application, the TR 491 tripod turnstile is a true "tank" that withstands repeated wear and tear in high-volume pedestrian areas in :

. Schools, universities and colleges

. Office buildings, head offices, administrative sites

. Industrial and manufacturing facilities

. Sports centers, Cultural or entertainment venues

. Ports and harbors


Matching products :


Multiple arrays of TR 491 will be enhanced by the PPV 323 swing gate, accessible for wheelchairs
