A properly designed and implemented entrance control system – usually involving some form of pedestrian entrance control such as optical turnstiles, mechanical turnstiles, or portals – can have a major role in the deterrence of active shooter incidents, security experts believe.
Evidence suggests that the largest proportion of such unwanted incidents occur in workplaces where no visible entrance control system is in place. For this reason, and taking into account the very rapid increase in active shooter incidents, security design professionals are exploring ways to provide safety while complying with the business mission.
Optical turnstiles with swinging glass or retracting glass barriers, mechanical turnstiles, and portals, offer an enhanced level of security against active shooter incidents, especially when combined with security doors, surveillance video, security officers and access control systems.
The use of strong effective entrance control security at outside lobbies and other entrances also communicates in a very visible manner the overall secure culture of a building/campus, meaning that a possible perpetrator will witness the obvious measures that have been implemented at the entrances and can surmise that equally sophisticated and sturdy measures have been employed throughout the facility to protect the occupants.
