Tollcross International Swimming Centre Glasgow reception area secure by Fastlane turnstiles

Product Profile: Fastlane Glassgate 155

The Glassgate 155, based upon the aesthetics of the popular Glassgate 150 model, offers additional security and lane width options whilst maintaining the renowned good looks of the Fastlane range and offering new opportunities for security control.

Stylistically, the new Glassgate 155 units are recognisable as a Fastlane product, utilising dual glass barrier panels operating in a bi-directional normally closed mode, but now feature 56 concealed optical beams. The concealed optical system allows for a sleeker look with waist height glass barriers and optional locking brakes.

Developed with leisure facilities in mind, the Glassgate 155 turnstile was first installed in Glasgow at the Gorbals leisure facility at the beginning of 2018 and later that year at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre. This model offers a wider lane of up to 1200mm and can accommodate sports wheelchairs, which are slightly wider than standard wheelchairs, making this a more inclusive entrance control, as all users enter and exit via the same point. This also means that fire exit routes are now much simpler, as all users can exit via the same set of gates.

As standard, the Glassgate 155’s enclosure is comprised of stainless steel with a brushed finish and the pedestal top is stainless steel with Black Quartz Corian inserts. But, as with other models in the Fastlane range, options for other materials and finishes are available on request.

The Glassgate 155 also comes with Fastlane Connect preinstalled allowing the units to be integrated with other Fastlane applications– including our FastCount app, providing real time building population data. You can read more about these applications here.

Fastlane Connect

The dual pedestal height, automatic glass barriers are designed to open in a door-like motion, closing quickly and safely behind users, leading to fast user acceptance. With the turnstiles capable of intelligently controlling traffic flow, and processing 60 authorised users per minute, users experience little or no dwell time when gaining entry.

The Glassgate 155 also allows for seamless integration with access control, CCTV and whole building management systems. By receiving information from your access control system, Glassgate 155 knows how many people to admit and in which direction of travel. Any unexpected movements are instantly met with an audible and visual alarm and signals can be passed to your access control or CCTV system to acknowledge an alarm condition has occurred.
