Half-height turnstiles are mechanical or electronic barriers that are commonly used to control access to a restricted area or a facility.
They are called “half-height” because they only extend up to the waist or chest height of an average adult.
These turnstiles consist of a rotating barrier, usually made of metal bars or glass panels, that allows only one person at a time to pass through. They are often used in places where security is a concern, such as amusement parks, museums, sports venues, and public transportation systems.
Half-height turnstiles are often preferred over full-height turnstiles because they take up less space and are easier to install.
They can also be integrated with access control systems, such as biometric scanners, smart cards, or RFID readers, to enhance security and track the movement of people in and out of a facility.
