At swimming pools, sports stadiums or public toilet – CF-TS turnstiles are the ideal choice wherever large numbers of people must be reliably individualized and managed.

The robust housings and stainless-steel barrier arms not only withstand improper use but are also suitable for outdoor applications (option).
