Tandem Full Height Turnstiles

General Information for Tandem Full Height Turnstiles

Tandem Full Height Turnstiles are a used when trying to conserve space. They are two turnstiles in one and have a smaller footprint than 2 single full height turnstiles would. Our tandem turnstiles come in two different passage widths, several different finishes and can be configured differently depending on your application. Please see choosing the correct tandem turnstile to determine the best solution for your application. We also offer custom modification of our turnstiles to fit your needs.

Description

The AG-30-TT is a heavy-duty, full-height high-security tandem turnstile.  A tandem turnstile is essentially two turnstiles in one and has a smaller footprint than two single turnstiles put together. A tandem turnstile is used when more than one turnstile is needed in high traffic areas. It also had a reduced footprint of 8’ 6” wide – whereas two single turnstiles side by side have a total width of 11’.

The function of the AG-30-TT is to provide controlled access when entering or exiting a facility where high flow traffic is present. It can achieve this both mechanically (no access control system/software, such as a pool gate where the passage would be used for only exiting and no entry), or electronically (with an access control system, card readers, fingerprint readers, etc. for keeping track of who is on and off-site). It is constructed with American Pride right here in the USA. Matching AG-36-ADA Door, Filler Panels and Reach-Through Barriers are also available.

Additional Features and Accessories

Motorized NO TOUCH Locking Mechanism

The Motorized NO TOUCH Locking Mechanism makes a single full height turnstile rotate on its own without the need to touch the bars. This is a great solution to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses alike.

Indicator lights

Indicator lights can be added to turnstiles to help aid the flow of traffic by providing a small red and green light that changes with the status of the passage. For example, when someone approaches the turnstile the indicator light will be red. When someone swipes their card and the turnstile unlocks the red light will shut off and the green light will turn on, signaling that that passage is ready to use. After they pass through and the turnstile locks back up the indicator light will turn back to red. When indicator lights are added they are factory wired and installed right above the card reader plate.

Directional lights

Directional lights can be added to turnstiles to help aid the flow of traffic by providing red x and green arrows indicating if the passage is shut down or operational. For example, when someone is approaching the turnstile from a distance, they will be able to see either a red x or a green arrow on top of the turnstile indicating if the passage is usable or not.

Cold Weather Package

A cold weather package can be added to keep the locking mechanism moving easily in cold temperatures. This includes a thermostat-controlled heater as well as an insulated lid.

Programmable Keypad

Slim Stone Keypad can be added to the turnstile if you wish to be able to unlock the turnstile without an access control system. The slim stone can be programmed to trigger the turnstile to unlock when the correct pin is entered.

Cage Canopy

A cage canopy can be added to the turnstile. A cage canopy is a stainless-steel flat plate the covered the entire top of the cage underneath the header and helps inhibit people from climbing over.

Portable Bases

Portable bases are available for all our turnstiles. We can provide a turnstile on a portable base or provide the turnstile and the portable base separately, However the turnstile will need to be installed on the base onsite.

How many Tandem Full Height Turnstiles are needed?

    • This will depend on how much pedestrian traffic there is and how fast it needs to move

What type of finish should be chosen?

    • Powder coated turnstiles should be used for indoors only.
    • Galvanized turnstiles have good corrosion resistance inside and out and are suitable for outdoor applications.
    • Powder coat over galvanized turnstiles have exceptional corrosion resistance and are suitable for outdoor applications.
    • Stainless steel turnstiles have extreme corrosion resistance and are very suitable for outdoor applications.

How should the locking mechanism(s) be configured

    •  If you are using an access control system to unlock the turnstile(s) on entrance and exit, AKA (badge in badge out), then the turnstile(s) need to be configured 2 way electric.
    • If you are using an access control system to unlock the turnstile(s) on entrance and need to be able to free exit AKA (badge in, free exit), the turnstile(s) need to be configured 1 way electric.
    • If you are not using an access control system and have an electronic keypad that you can program pin codes into or some other form of programmable input source to unlock the turnstile on entrance and exit, then the turnstile need to be configured 2 way electric.
    • If you are not using an access control system and have an electronic keypad that you can program pin codes into or some other form of programmable input source to unlock the turnstile on entrance and want to be able to exit freely, then the turnstile(s) needs to be configured 1 way electric.
    • If you simply need a turnstile to be free exit and locked on entrance, then the locking mechanism needs to be configured for manual locking.

How should the locking mechanism(s) funtion on power loss?

    • if the turnstile(s) need to unlock on both entry and exit, then the solenoids must be fail open for entry and exit
    • if the turnstile(s) need to lock on entry and unlock on exit, then the entry solenoid must be fail close, and the exit solenoid must be fail open.

What passage width is ideal?

    • the most popular passage width for turnstiles is 30". A bigger passage width than this becomes more and more unsecure because 2 people may be able to pass through the passage when unlocked. Our single turnstiles are available in 27", 30" , 36", and 39" passage widths. Keep in mind, the larger the passage width the larger overall footprint of the turnstile. See size and footprint below for more details.

Size, Foot Print, and Comparisons

    • The larger the passage width, the larger the overall turnstile. For example, an AG-30-T has a 30" passage, but the overall width of the turnstile is 66". An AG-39-T turnstile has 39" passage width and the overall width is 84". Tandem Turnstiles have two passages but a smaller foot print. For example, two AG-30-T's (which have one 30" passage) placed next to each other would total 11'. One AG-30-TT, which has 2 30" passages, would only be 8' 6" wide. 

Single vs Tandem Turnstiles

    • Single Full Height Turnstiles provide high security entrance or exit control and are the most flexible in terms of size and placement with ADA GATES and other equipment. For example, a single turnstile can also have an ADA GATE beside it, and two single turnstiles can have an ADA GATE in between them. This can spread out the flow of pedestrian traffic if you have ample room to do so. If turnstile installation is in a tight area and there is a lot of pedestrian traffic, take a look at Tandem Full Height Turnstiles. They are essentially two single turnstiles in one but have a smaller footprint. For example, two AG-30-T single turnstiles they take up just over 11' when placed next to each other. An AG-30-TT tandem turnstile takes up just over 8' 6". If installation area is tight a Tandem Full Height Turnstile may be a better option.
