Over 280 installations and growing – the basis for design remains the same

CHINO, CAAlvarado, the USA’s leading manufacturer of turnstiles has been selected for the eighth year in a row to remain the basis of design for all FedEx Ground facilities. FedEx Ground specifies Alvarado full height turnstiles and gates to increase security around the perimeter fence line of each of its facilities. To date, over 280 installations have been completed using exclusively Alvarado turnstiles and gates.

“We’re pleased that FedEx Ground continues to use Alvarado as the basis of design,” states National Sales Manager, Nick Simon. “We have spent the better part of a decade working to develop the simplest product package available, which not only provides reliable access control, but allows FedEx to operate within budget. Our long history of reliable performance as well as an established reputation as a superior turnstile manufacturer will ensure that we continue to supply FedEx to our 300th installation and beyond.”

Alvarado combined two of its most-reliable products along with a custom barrier designed specifically for FedEx Ground installations around the world:

  • ALV-PACKAGE2010-FXG is a packaged kit that includes the following:
  • MST-6X – Full height turnstile with custom reader mounting plates
  • MSGXE – Full height security gate with automatic electric strike lock
  • FH-BAR – Full height barrier to tie in with existing fencing

Alvarado is committed to not only providing superior products, but also delivering in record time. All FedEx Ground products are in stock every day of the week and come with a 5-10 day lead time from the moment you place your order. This allows Alvarado to react quickly to the needs of FedEx as well as on-site contractors and integrators.

“One thing contractors and installers need to be aware of, “ continues Simon, “is that not all products are created equal. A few installers have pieced together turnstiles and gates from other sources. They have been surprised to receive competitor products that ship in dozens of pieces, versus ours which ship ready to install. The assembly of the other products simply wastes too much time and resources.”

Alvarado full height turnstiles feature HydraLine™, exclusive technology which provides smooth rotation for easier passage and eliminates jarring stops to reduce wear on all moving parts, extending the life of the turnstile. Every gate and full height barrier ships fully assembled and ready for installation, ensuring proper installation and saving valuable time and money.
