Huddersfield railway station gets new ticket barriers

product-halfheight Huddersfield railway station gets new ticket barriersThe Huddersfield railway station is set to bring into use ticket barriers in the near future, in order to reduce anti-social behaviour and speed-up access times for ticket paying passengers, a news report reveals.

No less that seven new gates will be installed inside the newly-revamped main entrance of the station, meaning passengers will have to have tickets before getting on to the platforms. Furthermore, those getting off trains at Huddersfield will also need tickets to exit the station.

Wider gates are planned to allow access for customers with additional needs, such as wheelchairs, prams, luggage trolleys and cycles.

“Ticket barriers restrict access to the platforms and that means a reduction in anti-social behaviour. There have also been complaints at Huddersfield station from passengers who have been held up by staff checking for tickets.” said transport expert Prof Paul Salveson.

Station staff will still have to be on duty at the barriers, though, since they will not be able to accept every form of ticket.

Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles has a variety of access-restriction products available in store, but probably the best suited for a situation such as the one described above are the Half Height Turnstiles.

Ideal for controlling access to a wide variety of environments, the Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles Half Height Turnstiles are a customer-friendly alternative to full height turnstiles, and provide an unobtrusive method of controlling flow to certain areas of your premises.

The system offers a very good level of speed and reliability, ensuring that even during a rush hour period, your half height turnstile does not compromise the safety and security of those passing through it.

Styled in a tripod design, both single and double half height turnstiles are available, effectively doubling the throughput while keeping the amount of space used by the turnstile to a minimum.

Our turnstiles are very well fit for interior and exterior installations, since they’re manufactured from 304 or 316 grade stainless steel and require no routine maintenance. Plus, for peace of mind, all of our half height turnstiles are supplied complete with a 2 year warranty.
