Ready to meet your security needs

Unsurpassed facility entrance control

The CPST clear full height turnstile has crystal clear rotating arms and side panels that dramatically enhance the turnstile’s appearance. The clear full height turnstile is also richly appointed with standard features that are expensive options on competitor products.

The CPST provides bi-directional access control in conjunction with a facility access control system or any device that can provide a dry contact output (such as a push button). Card readers can be added to the clear full height turnstile and each direction can be independently configured as either fail-safe or fail-lock. In operation, when a valid credential is presented, the turnstile unlocks, allowing a single controlled rotation in the requested direction. Unauthorized entries, or attempts to tailgate on an authorized entry, are deterred.

The CPST clear full height turnstile has built in override controls that provide additional flexibility. Passage directions can be set for free passage, controlled passage or locked down.

Key Features:

  • Single or bi-directional control
  • Electric lock control
  • Independent fail-safe or fail-secure operation
  • Speed control to provide a controlled, safe rotation
  • Automatic self-centering prevents over or under travel of rotating section
  • Built-in override controls
  • Rugged turnstile controller integrates with any access control system
  • Low maintenance

Added Benefits:

  • Secure and safe
  • Intuitive for users and staff
  • Integrates easily with access control systems
  • Can be operated in unattended applications
  • Controlled rotation minimizes physical abuse, banging and wear on components
  • Simple to change between fail-safe and fail-lock operation

Key Features:

  • Simplified integration to access control and visitor management systems
  • Flexible credential reader attachment options allows use of existing readers familiar to users
  • Dedicated fire input and various other available I/O

Safety features you shouldn’t be without

Built-in Safety

CPST clear full height turnstiles provide secure and safe operation. Built in speed control controls the arm rotation speed by self-adjusting to the pushing force of the user. Even when a user pushes hard on the turnstile arms, the speed of the arm rotation is controlled. This increases safety and reduces the chance that a rapidly spinning rotating section catches a user’s heel. In addition to controlling the rotation speed, the clear full height turnstile’s speed control also greatly reduces the possibility that the rotating section will kickback toward the user at the conclusion of the rotation. After each passage, the rotating section smoothly returns to the home position and locks in place, ready for the next user. The unique cam design of the CPST also makes it mechanically impossible for a user to get locked inside the turnstile.

In secured applications the CPST is typically configured for fail-lock in the entrance direction and fail-safe in the exit direction. When power is removed from the turnstile this prevents people from entering but allows personnel to exit. Clear full height turnstiles configured for fail-lock in the exit direction can also provide free egress using local key override controls. Other ordering options are available and changing between fail-lock and fail-safe is easily accomplished in the field. A dedicated input for fire systems also provides free egress in the event of emergencies.

Key Features:

  • Speed control provides a safe, controlled rotation and smoothly self-centers rotating arms
  • Anti-entrapment design
  • Free egress in emergencies or loss of power


The CPST full height security turnstile is independently tested and certified by UL, conforming to both UL and CSA standards. It is also CE marked.
