What are Turnstiles?

 Turnstiles are a form of gate which allows passage of one person at a time. They can restrict passage if they have an authentication device attached to them or they can enforce one-way traffic so people cannot get back in once they have exited.  Originally turnstiles were used to allow humans to pass while keeping animals from exiting their pen. 

Uses for Turnstiles?

 In commercial security use, turnstiles aid in the attendance count and security enforcement because patrons enter in a single-file line making them easier to screen. When there are authentication devices affixed to the turnstile, unauthorized personnel cannot gain access to the restricted area.  Two way full-height turnstiles are used in the New York City metro to prevent people from entering without paying their fare. Exit-only full-height turnstiles are usually used in large commercial enclosed areas such as theme parks, zoos, or amusement parks to allow customers to leave while preventing anyone from entering. During the early 2000s in Moscow, Russia authorities installed turnstiles inside public transport in order to ensure everyone is paying their fare.
