Purchase Suggestions:

In our daily life, intelligent flap barrier turnstiles can be seen on many occasions, and their application range is very wide. Many customers are not sure where to start when purchasing flap barrier gates. Next, we will introduce you to several items to consider when purchasing this product.

Quality is a criterion for considering intelligent access control flap barrier turnstiles. Although the main parameters of the flap barrier are basically the same, there are significant differences in the material selection and production and processing processes during the production and processing process.

1. Flap barrier turnstile mechanism:

The flap barrier turnstile mechanism directly determines its quality and service life and determines whether the flap barrier operates stably and silently. Mairs uses a high-end customized flap barrier mechanism, effectively ensuring the turnstile parts that customers are most interested in but may overlook the links they want to pay attention to.

2. Material.

This type of equipment is specially designed to allow people to pass through, and the external force plays a significant role. Therefore, the strength borne by the machinery of the intelligent flap barrier turnstile is a key consideration for customers. Considering that it is long-term operating equipment, it is recommended to use stainless steel as the material and model. The material of the blocking barrier is preferably flexible, which can effectively increase the buffer space and ensure the high-frequency application of the equipment.

Distinguish the quality from the material of the flap barrier turnstile. Currently, high-quality flap barrier turnstiles are generally made of 304 stainless steel, while customized ones may be made of 316 stainless steel, which can be distinguished based on thickness and texture. Users who have some knowledge of stainless steel can use this method to judge the quality.

Flap barrier turnstiles are designed for people to use when entering and exiting the passageway, with various external forces, and impact toughness is important; In long-term operation, the flap barrier gate also functions as a guard, which should be unique, so using stainless steel is necessary.

Stainless steel can be divided into several types, such as 201, 304, 316, etc. Generally, it is proposed to use 304 stainless steel. Due to 304 stainless steel, in a sense, it has rust and corrosion resistance properties. In coastal cities, 316 stainless steel is highly recommended for chemical plants.

Generally used in the market are SUS304 stainless steel materials, but there are also some illegal manufacturers in order to save costs to use 201 materials to produce, in the choice must determine whether to use 304 materials, in addition, the thickness of materials must also be concerned. The thickness of 304 is generally 1.5mm, customers must see clearly;

3. Applicability:

In the purchase of a flap turnstile gate entrance guard, as long as according to their own conditions to select, the true and appropriate is the best, It is not that the more expensive the more suitable, the environmental and management requirements determine the choice. I bought a flap turnstile gate for which the price is high but not suitable, that is not a big loss? The loss outweighs the gain.

4. Cost performance:

Applicable to the installation of the channel, but also beautiful and affordable, is not better? Material and core performance are two important factors that determine the flap turnstile gate.

5. The appearance:

In the choice of flap barrier gate, appearance is often also a large factor. According to different occasions need to match the appearance, gate color, materials, and so on.

There are also various types of flap turnstiles on the sales market at this stage. However, appearance can only be distinguished by oneself, and since everyone has different aesthetic values, it is necessary to choose by oneself.

Like some hotels, government agencies, and other occasions to compare advanced places, we need to take into account the beauty of the flap barrier gate, this is not only an appearance problem but also brings people psychological feelings, so aesthetics can not be ignored.

6. Flap barrier style:

There are many types of flap turnstile gate, there are diagonal flap turnstile barrier gate, round flap turnstile barrier, sharp flap gate barrier, of course, can also be customized flap turnstile barrier, and so on. There are also some special styles, such as full-height flap barrier gate, rail transit active ticket machines, prison flap turnstile barrier, and so on. All kinds of flap turnstile barrier gates are dazzling, and then, the most important thing is to consider the cost-performance and applicability of these two aspects.

7. Safety performance:

Flap turnstiles generally rely on infrared sensors to control personnel access. Once there are no or too few infrared sensors, the flap turnstiles are likely to cause unnecessary safety disputes for personnel, so infrared sensors should not be too few.

The flap turnstile has an audible and visual alarm function, including illegal intrusion and follow-up alarms. The anti-collision function of the flap turnstile can automatically lock when there is no door opening or closing signal, reasonably avoiding illegal invaders. The anti-pinch and anti-drug functions of flap barrier gates are based on whether a turnstile manufacturer has grasped the specifications of key flap turnstile technologies.

The infrared photoelectric detection of flap turnstile gates solves the phenomenon of gate clamping and has good protection measures for the human body. At the same time, different circuit control systems are selected according to different usage situations and personnel needs, such as in some kindergartens, Primary schools, and so on need to have an anti-clamp infrared switch function, good protection for children.

8. Stability performance:

Flap barrier stability is determined based on the stability and comprehensiveness of each component of the flap barrier gate. The use of high-quality components is essential, such as SD card readers, control boards, display screens, and so on; The key to the integrated method is the design scheme and communication mode of the control module.

9. Intelligent performance:

The flap barrier has a fully automatic calibration function. When the switch is turned on and off, the system will automatically revoke the permission for this pass. Automatic calibration within 5 seconds after the specification is turned on.

The intelligence of the flap barrier turnstile also shows that in the automatic opening of the safety channel after a sudden power failure or emergency power shutdown of the product and the automatic closing of the safety channel when the power supply is restored or turned on. The flap barrier gate also has a fault self-inspection function, and common faults can be handled in a timely manner, greatly maintaining the service life of the wing gate.

10. Innovation performance:

The Mairs automatic silent flap barrier turnstile adopts a high-precision forging mechanism. This mechanism is based on the flap barrier currently popular in the market, using a new ARM control system and industrial production level control production and processing methods, and is a newly upgraded and released product. It has the characteristics of no noise, smooth operation, no mechanical equipment wear, and long operating life. All products are stable in starting and stopping during operation and can be quickly switched on and off. It is a soundproof automatic high-speed wing brake incorporating multiple multi-level sensors.

11. Application environment.

When purchasing a smart flap turnstile gate with a card reader, you should first specify the application environment you need, such as tourist attractions, cinemas, subway stations, stations, and other places where ticket checking is required, or corporate buildings, factories, and places where employees must be present. Having a clear understanding of the location and functional requirements that must be applied in one’s own right will make it very easy to choose and purchase flap turnstiles.

When purchasing, it is also necessary to consider the specific application environment, such as ordinary supermarkets, where ticket checking is not required for entry and exit. When purchasing, everyone needs to select a cylindrical, mechanical product that does not have a ticket-checking function. If it is necessary to identify an office building, bank, or other occasions, it is necessary to purchase intelligent flap turnstiles with identification. If the requirements for appearance are high, it is recommended to choose paint products.

12. Service life.

As we all know, the operation of this type of product is driven by a motor. In ordinary life, the equipment is in continuous operation, so the service life of the motor and speed reducer directly determines its operating life. This is a key issue to pay attention to when purchasing.

The service life of the flap turnstile will also have an inevitable relationship with maintenance, but the selection depends on its core structure and circuit control design.

13. After-sales service:

Intelligent flap turnstiles are relatively professional equipment. If they are damaged in the later stages of operation, non-professionals cannot maintain and repair them themselves. Therefore, when purchasing, it is important to pay attention to whether the after-sales service guarantee system is perfect.

14. Identification Methods:

There are different ways of identification in different situations, such as IC cards, ID cards, fingerprints, iris, and so on. In addition, according to the environment on the spot, we should also see what kind of controller to choose, some need a network to see the entry and exit records, some do not need a network, and inconvenient wiring can be achieved by IC card writing. Be sure to choose your own way before choosing.

Flap barrier & Swing Turnstile

Flap barrier turnstile is a type of turnstile gate that is widely used, It is as important as an intelligent swing turnstile and is mainly used to prevent congestion during high pedestrian flow and rush hours. It is an efficient and safe intelligent channel entry and exit control device, with a moderate price, less complex gate structure, and convenient maintenance.

Having the function of obstructing unauthorized personnel; The advantage is fast running speed and luxurious atmosphere, while the disadvantage is that the passage is narrow and only limited to pedestrians.

The use range of flap barrier turnstiles and swing turnstiles is very wide, and often there may be a situation where either swing turnstiles can be chosen or flap barrier turnstiles can be used. So customers may be struggling with which one to buy. What is the difference between swing turnstiles and flap barrier turnstiles? Many people often cannot choose between swing turnstiles and flap barriers when choosing a turnstile gate, and there are actually significant differences between the two. Today, I will tell you the differences between them. In order to provide consumers with a reference.

1. Traffic speed: The retractable distance of the flap barrier baffle is small, and the range of the swing turnstile baffle is larger. Therefore, the protection area of the flap barrier is small, and the speed is relatively fast; The swing turnstile protection area is large and the action is slower.

2. Safety: When the flap barrier gate is opened and closed, it is prone to phenomena such as knocking or pinching people due to slow pedestrian speed. The baffle of the swing turnstile is a front and rear switch mode of passage, with a large contact area that pedestrians can feel when passing, so the force of patting people is not significant.

The fenders of the flap barrier are “pinched” from the left and right sides of the human body, making it difficult to feel them. Moreover, the contact area is small and the force is strong, making it easy to pinch pedestrians. Therefore, the safety of the flap barrier turnstile is not as high as that of the swing turnstile.

3. Compressive strength: The baffle structure of the flap barrier gate is special, and the compressive strength is much better than that of the swing turnstile gate. The weak point in the compressive strength of the swing turnstile gate lies in the baffle. The installation method of the flap barrier gate baffle is much simpler than that of the swing turnstile.

4. Installation space: The standard width of the swing turnstile is 600mm (adjustable size), and the channel width can reach 900mm without changing the chassis size. However, due to the small baffle of the flap barrier gate, the channel width can only be fixed at 550mm.

In short, when choosing these two types of turnstiles, we can choose one that is suitable for our specific needs. For example, if the budget is low, we can choose the swing turnstile, or if there is a lot of traffic such as luggage, bicycles, etc., we can choose the swing turnstile. If the budget is sufficient and a super quiet environment is needed, we can choose the flap barrier gate, which needs to be selected according to specific needs. I hope this article is helpful to you.

How to use the flap barrier correctly?

The flap barrier turnstile is used more and more in real life. It has been widely used in airports, subway entrances, subway stations, ports, tourist attractions, ecological parks, enterprise safe passages, etc. it can cooperate with the smart card to maintain the function of the intelligent management system of the ticket office and the unmanned management method of staff revenue and expenditure. Because the flap barrier gate turnstile is faster, the staff can pass quickly, safely, and orderly. The flap turnstile is upgraded equipment of tripod turnstile gate and swing turnstile gate, which will make the application site look more high-end.

The correct use of the product can effectively reduce the noise and impact problems in the working process. How to correctly use the flap turnstile gate is also very important. To improve the service life, and better play the advantages of the flap gate barrier, it is best to follow the following flap turnstile barrier gate use methods, Now let’s explain how to use it correctly:

1. Do not stay in the middle opening of the flap barrier turnstile channel, which will help to improve the smoothness of the safety channel. During the operation of the flap turnstile gate, do not enter the safety channel of the flap turnstile with the tail.

2. When the flap turnstile is in use, the cardholder swipes the card outside the yellow line. Don’t swipe the card while standing at the infrared alarm of the flap turnstile. When the barrier turnstile is fully opened and the arrow indicates passage, you can enter. It is better not to stay in it, so as to improve the fluency of the channel.

Cardholders do not fold, alter, or put cards and magnetic items together to avoid card failure, when the card is lost must contact the management to register from scratch, to avoid information leakage.

3. During the passage of the barrier turnstile, you must not follow the passage of the flap turnstile. Do not force the blocking barrier of the flap barrier turnstile to open, so as not to hurt people. If the front personnel has passed the middle point, the back personnel can swipe the card. If the card swiping is effective, there will be an arrow indication and the gate will be opened at the same time so that you can pass quickly.

If the barrier turnstile gate has an alarm or voice prompt, do not pass casually. If the barrier turnstile gate fails, immediately notify the management department for inspection. If it is repaired, find a professional company.

4. The cardholder should not swipe the card in the sensing area too high to avoid being unable to sense, and should not swipe the card close to the sensing area. The correct card is the right-hand card, which is parallel to the sensing area and 20-30mm away from the sensing area. Hearing a “tick” proves that the card has been swiped successfully. In this way, it can be passed.

5. The flap barrier turnstile gate also needs regular maintenance. It is just a machine. The machine needs regular maintenance. The dust inside and outside the chassis should be cleaned regularly to ensure the normal operation of the turnstile machine.

Generally speaking, if the barrier turnstile gate is used well, it can be used for eight to ten years. Therefore, the correct use of flap turnstile gate is a very important thing, which will directly affect the application time of products.

Composition of flap barrier turnstile:

What are the parts of the flap barrier?

The flap barrier turnstile is composed of a turnstile chassis, turnstile mechanism, turnstile controller, infrared sensor, control equipment, two movable blocking wings, and other turnstile parts. The blocking wings can be extended and retracted to dissuade or release. The material is imported or domestic su304, 1.5mm, and the movement has a mechanical anti-pinch. Even if the electronic anti-pinch is broken, the mechanical anti-pinch has the same effect and will not hurt people, which greatly improves safety. The electronic control industrial chip has good stability, does not crash, and has a fast recovery, The infrared sensor can detect the signal. So far, we have a deeper understanding of what is flap barrier.

The flap barrier turnstile is basically composed of the main chassis and movable wing plate. Its shape is like the wings of a bird. It is called a “flap”, so it is called a flap barrier gate; It has the function of blocking (dissuading) unauthorized personnel, so it is also called a blocking gate; The advantages are fast running speed and a luxurious atmosphere. The disadvantage is that the channel is narrow and only pedestrians can pass through.

The left and right wings of the flap barrier turnstile can quickly shrink and expand towards the inside of the chassis, which is suitable for one-way or two-way control of human flow. With a fast passing speed and an integrated infrared sensing module, the equipment can effectively prevent people from being pinched, and the passage is efficient and safe.

The blocking body is generally a fan-shaped structure that operates in a retractable manner to achieve opening and closing, perpendicular to the ground, blocking and release are realized through elasticity. The material of the blocking body is usually plexiglass and toughened glass, and some also use metal plates wrapped with special flexible materials (to reduce the damage caused by hitting pedestrians). The blocking body can be divided into blue, red, and acrylic transparent blocks. Moreover, the traffic speed is adjustable. Anti-tailing, excellent personnel passage management effect.

Types of flap barrier turnstile:

What are the different types of flap barriers?

The flap barrier gate can be divided into single-core flap turnstile and double-core flap turnstile according to different combination types of mechanisms.

Single-core flap turnstile: only one single core is configured inside the chassis.

Double core flap turnstile: there is a double mechanism working independently in the chassis.

Flap barriers can be divided into single-lane flap turnstiles and multi-lane flap turnstiles according to the number of channels.

Single lane flap turnstile: it is composed of two single-core flap barrier gates.

Multi lanes flap turnstile: it is composed of two single-core flap barrier gates and multiple double-core flap barrier gates.

The common flap barrier gate is composed of a frame chassis, mechanism, blocking arm(blocking baffles), control system, infrared sensor, control equipment, etc.

Working principle of flap barrier:

To really understand what is flap barrier, we still need to be clear about the working principle of the flap turnstile.

A fast telescopic blocking baffle is embedded on both sides of the turnstile channel. When the equipment detects the flap barrier turnstile gate opening signal, the two baffles will shrink synchronously and quickly to make the current channel in an obstacle-free state. The main control board of the flap barrier turnstile machine has a pulse signal command, the control system commands the mechanical system to work, and the turnstile gate is opened.

When the pedestrian passes the induction point, the machine control motherboard notifies the mechanism motor to close the turnstile gate. There are electronic anti-pinch and mechanical anti-pinch when breaking into the machine illegally. When the flap barrier turnstile gate is opened and closed in place, it becomes a dead center mechanism, and the pedestrian cannot be opened, it so as to improve traffic reliability.

We also need to know the advantages of the flap barrier turnstile as follows: Fast opening speed, barrier-free accessibility, safe use, low noise, easy maintenance, convenient management, and other characteristics, suitable for high-end residential areas, office buildings, scenic spots, and other places with high pedestrian access frequency.

1. The traffic speed is the fastest of all types of turnstile gates, which is faster than the tripod turnstile gate and full height turnstile gate, and even faster than speed gate turnstile.

2. The passage width is relatively moderate and can adapt to most passageway locations, usually between 550mm-950mm; If you need a wider width, our flap barrier turnstile can be customized and designed, and adjusted according to the use on the installation site.

3. The appearance and shape are relatively beautiful, and the materials of the blocking body are relatively rich;

4. In case of emergency, the blocking wing will quickly retract into the chassis, which can easily form an obstacle-free passage, improve the traffic speed and facilitate pedestrian evacuation.

5. It has an anti-pinch function to ensure the safe and fast passage of personnel. The infrared radiation in the flap barrier gate is mainly used to sense the human body and play the role of anti-pinch, anti-tailing, or counting. Generally, there are 6 pairs of infrared, 3 above and 3 below.

6. The service life of the brushless motor series flap barrier is 8 million times.

7. It is strictly required to follow the principle of one person per pass, which is very simple and convenient for the statistics and control management of the number of passengers.

9. Can integrate various third-party identification devices and access control systems.

10. Excellent anti-tailgating effect.


What are the disadvantages of a flap barrier gate?

1. The appearance and shape are simple and single, and there are no more choices.

2. The chassis of the flap barrier turnstile occupies the space of the passage; There is a certain width requirement for the width of the channel and the opening and closing of the door body.

3. The production technology requirements are relatively high. If the technology does not meet the standard, it will greatly reduce the performance of the product and the anti-pinch ability to avoid personal injury.

4 Due to its flexible design, many large items, such as bicycles, motorcycles, or larger baby carriages and child carriages, are not convenient when passing through the pedestrian turnstile gate.

5. Restricted by the shape of the blocking barrier, the resistance of the flap barrier gate is lower than that of the tripod turnstile gate, and the blocking wing and mechanism are easy to be damaged by pedestrians’ illegal crossing;

6. The control method is relatively complex and costly. Technical requirements are relatively high, so prices are generally higher than tripod turnstiles.

7. The technical requirements for manufacturers are relatively high. Due to safety, anti-pinch performance requires high design capabilities from turnstile manufacturers.

Application site of full height flap barrier:

The entrances and exits of prisons, high-end buildings, clubs, and enterprise units can fully improve the image and enhance the security level.

Prevention level:

1. Normal mode: Class AA

2. Precise logic judgment mode (fast gate mode): AAA level

Common faults and handling methods:

1. There is electricity, but the flap barrier turnstile has no response after swiping the card

Troubleshooting reason: check the status of the indicator light of the flap barrier turnstile and check the starting status of the motor. If the indicator light is not on or the motor is not started, first check whether the terminal of the motor has voltage output. If these checks are OK, the mechanism is generally stuck. At this time, we need to reset the blocking wing of the intelligent flap barrier turnstile through wiring, and then test manually. The blocking wing can open and close and operate smoothly. Generally, the mechanism is damaged, and the problem can be solved as long as the movement is repaired.

2. After swiping the card, one door can be opened and the other door does not move.

Troubleshooting reason: check whether the online line is connected normally. If it is loose or has poor contact, connect it well, and then check whether there is a connection signal on the control motherboard at the side where the wing door does not move. If there is no signal, you need to check whether the connection line has fallen and whether the plug-in line on the motherboard is plugged in.

3. After the flap barrier gate is opened, the blocking wing cannot be closed

Troubleshooting reason: check whether the two infrared sensors on the left and right of the flap barrier turnstile work normally. When it is determined that the mainboard is good, check whether the pedestrian is in good condition, and then check whether the working indicator of the infrared sensor on the flap barrier control mainboard is normal.

4. The flap turnstile received the signal, but did not act

Troubleshooting reasons: check whether the output voltage of the transformer is normal, whether the fuse is blown, whether the motor connecting wire is desoldered, and whether the motor is damaged. If the blocking barrier can be opened manually when the flap barrier turnstile is closed, it is necessary to check whether the mechanism is worn, whether the slotted disc is damaged, or whether the gap is too large. If any problem is found, contact the manufacturer for replacement in time.

The above is the common problems and treatment methods of the intelligent flap barrier turnstile I sorted out for you. The pedestrian turnstile gate is an intelligent access control management product. It can only be used for a long time after regular maintenance and care in life. Generally, the maintenance and fault treatment methods of the turnstile gate are simple. The manufacturer has supporting resources when shipping, such as an operation manual, after-sales service guarantee, etc. However, as users, we must also have a preliminary understanding of the flap barrier turnstile gate and be able to simply deal with some common faults, which is not only conducive to normal maintenance but also useful in case of emergency.

Regular maintenance:

About the maintenance of the flap barrier turnstile, I’m just a brief introduction here, which is mainly divided into three parts. 1. External cleaning 2. Mechanism maintenance 3. Maintenance of circuit power supply. If you want to know more, please check out another article: turnstile maintenance

External cleaning

1. Surface cleaning: clean the dust on the surface with a soft cloth and polish the surface of the chassis with a soft cloth and talc powder. If possible, you can apply antirust oil. Do not touch the newly coated antirust oil with your hands. You can touch it by hand after natural drying for about 3-5 hours, otherwise, the antirust effect of the surface will be damaged.

2. After using it for a long time, especially outdoors, some rust spots may appear. Remove the rust spots: wipe along the long grain with sandpaper and talc powder (protect the direction of the thick grain), otherwise, it will affect the appearance.

3. If the chassis is painted or painted on the surface, wipe off the dust on the surface with a soft cloth. If there is an exposed scratch, repair it with paint of the same color, but be careful not to dye the opposite radio eye of the wing brake, otherwise, the intelligent wing brake will give a false alarm and cause unnecessary trouble.

Mechanism maintenance

1. Cut off the power supply, open the cover of the intelligent wing brake, clean the dust on the surface, clean the transmission part first, and then add butter, and properly apply some butter to the gear and wheel groove.

2. Check whether each fastener and connecting rod are loose and tighten them.

3. Check the wear of vulnerable parts. If the clearance between the positioning arm and the positioning disc exceeds 3mm, replace it in time. If the clearance is normal (1-1.5mm), add grease appropriately in the solenoid valve core to reduce the resistance and get lubrication when the solenoid valve moves left and right. Don’t add too much, just an appropriate amount.

4. Note that the limit switch and limit piece shall not be adjusted casually to prevent errors caused by adjusting too far or too close.

Maintenance of circuit power supply

1. Cut off the power supply and clean the dust on the surface. Be careful not to wash with water to prevent short circuits.

2. According to the previous use, check whether there are problems in the circuit. If there are no problems, check whether the circuit, power supply, wires, and plug-ins are exposed or loose, wrap and tidy them, tighten the plug-ins, check whether there is leakage, and replace the wires if they are aging.

3. Refer to the manual of the flap barrier gate to check whether the parameters of each part are normal and whether there are aging electronic components. If there is a problem, contact the manufacturer to find the root of the problem and replace individual electronic components.

The above maintenance must be maintained by specially assigned personnel, especially the mechanism and circuit parts. Only professionals who have received professional training and have a full understanding of strong and weak current can work.
