Suprema’s W2 biometric fingerprint/proximity card readers integrate with their powerful access control software so that when site contractors or your office team present their finger or card to the reader, it searches the database and, if finding an exact match, grants access. It goes without saying, that if there’s no match (i.e. they’re not on the database), there’s no access.

HOW compact is this this turnstile pod?

Our fingerprint/card turnstile pod has the smallest footprint of any standalone pod in the UK, only needing 2.5 sqm of your construction site and practically fit onto any site with ease. When incorporated into the hoarding site entrance, the turnstile pod’s automatic roller-shutters at the front and back not only present a great physical deterrent but help lock down your construction site when it is closed over night and at weekends.


The Suprema BioStar software provided is straightforward to add new contractors or site team to, and with a capacity for up to 10,000 contacts it’s powerful enough for even the largest construction project.
At the heart of this is the ability to permit access to authorised people, refusing those who don’t match, but also recording when contractors entered and left site, in a ‘time and attendance’ (T&A) report that saves payroll time with accurate reports, but more importantly, preventing costly over-payments or timesheet ‘mistakes’.


Yes, very easily, with an integration panel your fire alarm installer can provide. When integrated, in the event of a fire alarm and a site evacuation, the turnstile will go into free spin, enabling emergency services in and contractors out.
In addition, since the Suprema software logs everyone on site, should a site evacuation be required, it automatically produces a report of their names for emergency services to account for their safety outside the site. This essential H&S ‘muster’ reporting, enables you to meet HSE rules and can help you save lives!


Whichever you prefer. We always have turnstiles in stock, so can deliver at short notice, either our ‘pre-loved’ units for weekly rental or new units, fresh out of our fabrication workshop, to help showcase your site. New units can even be finished in your corporate colours and branded with logos for a great first impression to project clients, management or contractors.
