Giving you control


What do you need to know when buying a turnstile?

In terms of the price, is the turnstile supplied complete or are there any hidden extras?

Turnstar units are supplied 100% complete. Control panels are ready for power and data connections. Reader mounting brackets are available for full height turnstiles for the mounting of access readers, ticketing equipment, pushbuttons and coin or token acceptors.

What are the running costs?

With a long-established reputation for being exceptionally reliable and durable, Turnstar turnstiles are built to give years of cost-free and fault-free service with no routine maintenance. Our products are a fit-and-forget solution.

Is this turnstile robust enough for the job? Am I going to have failures during service?

Turnstar products are designed for the harshest of environments and have become the standard for Africa’s mining industry, which is known for extreme operating conditions. Production is carried out by state-of-the-art CNC machinery and robotic welding, all of which provide products of the highest quality and to the tightest of tolerances.

How long is the guarantee and is this an extra cost?

Turnstar’s industry leading Five-Year Guarantee is included in the purchase price.

What does the guarantee cover?

All mechanical components, including the ratchet disk and locking pawls, are covered by the Turnstar Five-Year Guarantee. The control panel, microswitches and solenoids are covered by a one-year guarantee.

Will the turnstile work with all types of access systems?

What will happen to the turnstile in the event of a power failure?
