Established in 1990, Turnstar has manufactured and sold over 40 000 turnstiles. Our customers range from the world’s largest blue chip corporations to single-site retailers.

Turnstar turnstiles operate with all forms of electronic access control, ticketing and time & attendance systems. In addition, they can be operated with pushbutton controls, remote transmitters and coin or token acceptors.
The turnstile can be factory-set for either fail-secure (auto-lock on power failure) or fail-safe (auto-unlock on power failure) operation. The turnstile can also be unlocked by means of the mechanical key override which is supplied standard with the turnstile. A battery backup system is also available on request, which will provide normal operation under conditions of no power.
Turnstar manufactures pedestrian gates and security barriers for use with all our turnstiles. We also supply special colours, and manufacture turnstiles in custom sizes and designs.
