MSSI: Access Control Turnstiles and the Key to Perimeter Security

There are a number of different ways and solutions to controlling access to your construction sites. Regardless of whether you have an industrial or a commercial construction site, you can enforce access control through the use of security personnel or with a physical device like a fence and a turnstile with access control technology. Fences act as a physical barrier, whereas the turnstile with access control is there to allow authorized individuals onto the site while preventing unauthorized individuals from entering at the same time. While physical access control can be achieved by having a guard physically onsite at all times, the turnstile with access control can provide almost the same level of security without having to provide space for a guard to perform their duties. 

When it comes to physical security and access control it's all about who, where, and when an individual is authorized to be. An access control system with turnstiles determines who is allowed to enter or exit, where they are allowed to exit or enter, and when they are allowed to enter or exit. For the most part a turnstile with access control technology acts as a locked door that only allows entry to those with a key to said door.
