Access control turnstiles can help better manage access to leisure premises

Installing access control turnstiles at your leisure business premises, whether we’re talking about a gym, club or some other type of facility can certainly help improve security, but in the same time potentially bolster membership by streamlining the customer’s access to the site.

Front desk personnel in recreational centres are often busy greeting members, performing important administrative duties and acting as cashiers. These distractions make it easy for members and visitors to enter the facility unnoticed.

When turnstiles are part of the entry process, access readers are integrated with turnstiles. Instead of presenting a credential to an attendant for validation, patrons present their credential to the turnstile reader. If valid, the turnstile opens (or unlocks depending on the type), allowing a single passage. If invalid, the turnstile remains closed and the attendant is notified.

The use of a locking barrier greatly minimizes the opportunity for unauthorized entries into the facility. It also speeds throughput because members are not required to wait for personnel to validate their credentials.

One important feature of an access control turnstile system is its ability to identify who is currently inside the facility, as well as historic member and guest-use patterns. Integrating turnstiles into the entry process improves the accuracy of membership system data by ensuring that users cannot bypass the system. This allows facilities to have the confidence that their system data is current and correct.
