Range Profile: Fastlane Plus

Designed to provide effective entrance control with a minimal footprint, the Fastlane Plus range can be found securing environments where space is at a premium but a method of monitoring and controlling pedestrian movement is still required. You will find these barrier arm turnstiles in the reception areas and lift lobbies of notable buildings around the world, including the UNESCO HQ in Paris, Towers 3 and 4 of the World Trade Center Complex in New York and Cleveland State University.

Featuring the latest infrared technology, the throughput of individuals entering and exiting a building can be optimised and monitored using Fastlane Plus turnstiles, with the barrier arms providing a visual deterrent as well as acting as a physical block to prevent unauthorised passage. In addition to the barrier arms themselves, the Fastlane Plus range of security turnstiles also feature individual beam paths which are capable of processing up to 1 person per second and include an anti-crawl system, creating an alert should a person try and pass under the barrier arms. These beam paths also identify tailgaters as close as 5mm from the authorised pedestrian, thus enforcing a one card/one entry policy.

The fast-acting arms operate in normally closed mode, retracting into the pedestal upon presentation of valid user credentials. In the event of an unauthorised user attempting access, Fastlane Plus units feature a two-stage alarm response, sounding an audible alarm and maintaining closed barriers to prevent entry. If the unauthorised user persists in their attempt to push past the barrier arms, then a second alarm sounds triggering other security functions such as CCTV or locking internal doors through integration with compatible systems.

All standard models in the Fastlane Plus range are supplied with a brushed stainless steel enclosure, with the pedestal tops in stainless steel with Black Quartz Corian end inserts to facilitate concealed or surface mounted card readers. We created the standard Fastlane Plus units to offer a solution which meets the aesthetic and functional needs of architects and specifiers but, as with all of our Fastlane products, the Fastlane Plus range is highly customisable. This allows us to accommodate your architectural and design specifications to complement any indoor environment, whilst still maintaining the level of security you require.

The barrier arms on the 400AS are located at the exit side of the pedestal and, with this particular model, the user may change the mode of
