“When it comes to security, don’t compromise on quality.” That’s our partner’s motto and we stand by it too. At EAS, we partner with Alvarado for security turnstiles and entry control products in Puerto Rico. Their top-quality solutions and our expert integration will help minimize risk in all types of applications. And as a plus, they will look great in your facilities!
Turnstiles do what a gate or door cannot: provide directional control of each passage and limit access to one person per activation. There are three types (and numerous models) of Alvarado turnstiles to meet your physical access control requirements. Keep reading to learn which solution is the best fit for your business or organization.
Alvarado security turnstiles:
Full Height Turnstiles
Full height turnstiles secure sensitive and restricted areas and provide unmanned entry control for all kinds of applications. Unlike competitive models that use individual parts that must be bolted together during installation, the integral sections of Alvarado’s FHTs are complete assemblies, creating a solid and secure product.
When it comes to the different models, you can never go wrong with the MST (pictured) — Alvarado’s most trusted, secure, and reliable maximum security FHT available. Or the new touchless MST-TE model for hygienic employee and visitor access control. To discourage tailgating, the FMST model includes four rotating arms (instead of three) for a more compact patron passage. Models like the CLST and CPST feature a clear side panel or crystal-clear rotating arms (respectively) for a less industrial appearance. The MST47’s wider passage area can be used as an entry point for delivering packages and materials. Tandem versions are also available for some of the models.
All full height turnstiles feature Alvarado’s speed control that adjusts to the pushing force of the user. Electrically controlled models integrate easily with nearly any access control system. Most models are available in galvanized, powder coat, powder coat over galvanized, and stainless-steel finishes.
Common applications: corporate security, industrial facilities, government security, and public transportation.
Alvarado optical turnstiles provide secure bi-directional entry control while blending beautifully with high-end environments like main lobbies. They combine integrated sensors and motorized barriers to control access and detect non-credentialed entries — increasing facility security, organizing the entry process, and reducing the staff required to monitor facility access.
The different models feature barrier panels (pictured), wings, or arms. Or in the case of the SU2000, no barriers at all. All models integrate with access control systems and are available in ADA compliant widths.
Common applications: corporate security, industrial facilities, government security, higher education, health, and fitness.
Waist High Turnstiles
Alvarado’s waist-high turnstiles provide reliable bi-directional access control, crowd control, and patron counting. They feature hydraulically dampened arm rotation with automatic self-centering and are available in manual and electrically controlled models.
The EDM Series (pictured) is a motorized WHT that provides a very comfortable passage experience for patrons. Its modular design and attractive brushed finish stainless steel cabinet look and function great in any indoor or outdoor environment. With just a light touch of the horizontal arm, the motor initiates rotation, allowing near touchless user passage.
The EDC Series waist-high turnstiles are made with high-quality stainless steel and investment cast components. The stainless-steel cabinet is manufactured without visible bolts or fasteners, providing a clean, less industrial look. Available in the square end and bullnose end cabinet styles in both standard and extended arm lengths.
Common applications: corporate security, industrial facilities, government security, health and fitness clubs, stadiums, and theme parks.
Often used in conjunction with turnstiles, we can also integrate Alvarado’s pedestrian security gates to provide access for disabled persons and material delivery. These gates easily integrate with access control systems and can be activated by entry control devices, such as a push-button installed at a guard or entry desk.
