Full-height Turnsile Custom Installation - Orion Entrance Control

When it comes to full height mechanical turnstiles, it may take quite a bit of news to get excited about the topic. They are generally seen as a commodity component of a comprehensive security strategy. However, Orion Entrance Control has injected some advanced construction and modern features into the conversation that may have you taking a second look at which turnstile you select as part of your next security project.

Orion's series of Maxima and ADA full height mechanical turnstiles feature:

  • 3-year warranty
  • Quiet mechanism, smooth operation, wiring channels, ease of access to wiring for simplified installation.
  • Much thicker steel.   Orion's single cage full height is over 400 pounds heavier than the competition due to the thickness of steel.  Available in galvanized, stainless steel, or powder coated. 
  • Standard overhead lights to illuminate passage way and LED Indicators 
  • PivotMax bottom pivot for easy installation and longer lifespan
  • IP 54 protection (dust and rain)
  • IP 65 protection (strong water jets in all directions for protection of electronics)
