Keeping any museum open and free to visit is not exactly an easy task for the curators, especially since actual donations from museum visitors are typically few and far apart.
Unfortunately, the donation boxes installed at the entrances and exits of some of the UK’s largest museums (such as the Science Museum, British Museum or Victoria and Albert Museum) are largely ignored by visitors, despite being apparently filled with cash each and every single day.
That’s the reason why there’s an ongoing debate on charging for access to the UK’s largest and best-known museums, with quite a few people suggesting that installing entry-point turnstiles would actually help raise awareness on the donations issue (while still keeping access free of charge).
One of the best solutions for such an undertaking is represented by the Glass Turnstiles designed and manufactured by Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles, that will be able to easily give museums all the benefits of an access control system, while also fitting seamlessly and elegantly into their environment, where appearance is equal to functionality.
Our Glass Turnstiles deliver an optimum pedestrian throughput in an elegant, sophisticated style, are available in both half height and full height models, and can easily support both interior and exterior installations, especially since it can cope with severe operating conditions.
Additionally, the products require no routine maintenance, and all of them are supplied complete with a 2 year warranty.
