Oxford, CT – October 8, 2019, Aeroturn LLC, a leading turnstile manufacturer that offers 100% Made In The USA turnstiles, today announced that the company’s mantrap turnstiles were selected by a major Federal Banking Institution in California. Aeroturn introduced its first mantrap turnstiles at the same Federal Banking Institution’s east coast location with single directional travel integrated with active metal detection foyer style detection. These initial deployments created an entirely new and improved method of secure passage for employees, visitors and contractors.  The throughput increased from 1-3 passages per minute all the way up to 6-10 immediately. This drastic improvement allowed for a much higher level of security by implementing an extremely efficient technology supporting the human interface required for a truly secure lobby.

Due to the success of the east coast project, Aeroturn was requested to work for the same institution on the west coast with a much tougher challenge at hand. The west coast deployment required bi-directional passages as well as additional override control and glass partitions to deter "lane jumping" while in the mantraps. “Our exceptional engineering efforts once again exceeded expectations and carried out the Aeroturn difference of delivering the highest technical expertise while maintaining real world execution,” states Michael Stoll, VP of Technical Sales & Marketing. “The management teams at the west coast federal bank added their inputs and extensive requirements during the project and we once again met and exceeded their wants and needs seamlessly.” Due to the success of the west coast deployment, the control groups involved are already looking into further deployments at federal institutions centrally located within the continental US.

With both of these secure locations employing varying levels of security personnel at different areas within their own facilities, it’s important for an equipment manufacturer to understand where the correct level of security vs. ease of passage is required. Aeroturn clearly understands this concept and continues to be a consulting partner as well as the preferred manufacturer of this prominent banking institution. The company has gone as far as offering some of its turnstile products for "stress testing" under maximum conditional expected circumstance and continues to exceed industry known standards.

This system can be mated to both active & passive metal detection as well as upgrading to forced entry resistant moving and fixed glass panels. With full height panels, transoms and metal detection, this integration has become the standard by which most banking & data centers will strive to have at their locations. Aeroturn once again has raised the game in the turnstile industry and continues to bring securer lobbies to government facilities throughout the country. For further information, visit
