    MST Full Height Turnstile

    No one makes better full height turnstiles than Alvarado. For over 30 years our MST model has been America’s most specified and used full height maximum security turnstile. Simply put, no other product comes close to the quality and performance of the MST.

    Secured entry control applications

    Perimeter control   |   Employee and visitor access control   |   Time and attendance integration

    Fence line security   |   Parking lot access   |   One way exit control   |   Unattended entry points

    Designed to last

    Superior construction

    The MST full height maximum security turnstile cuts no corners. Unlike competitive models that use individual parts that must be bolted together during installation, the integral sections of the MST are delivered fully welded, creating a solid, secure and structurally sound product. Details matter, especially when manufacturing a full height security turnstile to stand the test of time.

    Key Features:

    Welded steel construction with no exposed bolts or fasteners

    Stainless steel top channel cover and internal parts

    High quality sealed and covered bearings

    Splined connection between the rotating section and  top channel assembly provides a precision fit that minimizes play

    Rugged electronics with full-featured turnstile controller, conformal coated for enhanced weatherization protection

    Suitable for outdoor environments

    Dozens of options and several finishes available

    Added Benefits:

    Best in class security

    Designed for long term continuous usage

    One-to-one passage control deters tailgating

    Great looking product, regardless of finish

    Easy to install and easy to maintain

    Ready to meet your security needs

    Unsurpassed facility entrance control

    The MST full height turnstile comes in both manual and electric lock control versions. Both are richly appointed with standard features that are expensive options on competitor products.

    The electric model 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). The turnstile comes with attachment points for card readers and each rotation direction can be independently configured as 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.

    Both the manual and electric lock versions have built in override controls for 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 and manual versions

    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

    Simplified integration
