World Leading Pharmaceutical Company chooses Clarke Instruments again

Following on from the success of the last project, we were called in to help resolve issues at another facility.

The Company’s premises backed onto public access land: the requirement was for a secure turnstile enabling staff to access the land whilst preventing the public from gaining access to the site.

After in depth meetings to discuss the client’s requirements it was decided to use our 480B-200 turnstile. This was slightly modified to reduce gaps in the rotor arms.  It was also a customer requirement for a large specially designed rain cover to be fitted, with a light sensor to switch on down lights during the darker mornings and evenings in winter.

Once the design was agreed and orders signed it was a quick and seamless journey to manufacture the turnstiles and ancillary equipment.

This was a supply and install contract. One of the key criteria being the work needed to be carried out over two weekends. It was imperative that on the first weekend both existing entry points were removed and one of the turnstiles be up and running for the Monday morning. The 2nd entry point needed a lot of civil works done to facilitate the installation of the 2nd turnstile. Our installation department liaised with the project manager to ascertain a time scale for when the required civils works would be completed to enable us to get on site to carry out the installation of the 2nd turnstile as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Some of the key reasons for choosing Clarke Instruments were:

  • Project management: our flexibility and willingness to work with the client to interpret his needs.
  • A cost effective solution.
  • The Proven Robustness Quality and longevity of the Clarke Instruments Product.
  • The flexibility of the control board supplied with the Clarke Instruments product facilitating the seamless integration of the client’s chosen access control readers.
  • The fire safety relay: this was linked directly into the client’s safety systems.
  • The ability to set up the turnstile to fail lock for entry but remain fail open for exit in emergency situations.

We look forward to working with this world leading company again in the near future.

Clarke Instruments Ltd responds quickly and saves the day

In the lead up to Christmas, we received an urgent call for assistance from an existing customer who was struggling to complete a project on time.

Their existing contractor had failed to meet delivery deadlines and now our customer, a private security firm, was facing possible financial penalties if the project overran.

We were contacted late on Thursday evening and , after a full discussion regarding their situation, our client decided that our best-selling 480B-200 turnstile would satisfy their project specification.

The order was placed and processed. Delivery of the turnstile to site using a HYAB vehicle was arranged for first thing the following Monday morning. The turnstile was installed and fully operational by mid-day

We hope that our flexible approach to resolving problems at such short notice enabled our client to relax and enjoy the festive season, while also securing a promise to use our services again (hopefully with a bit more notice next time!).

Major Oil Refinery Chooses Clarke Instruments Ltd

A major oil refinery has again turned to us to enhance and extend its perimeter security and access control requirements.

Already a long-term customer, when additional turnstiles were required, we were the natural choice for a turnkey solution.We were asked to supply and install two 480A-209 double fence line turnstiles and one 480B-200 single fence line turnstile (a total of five extra walkways) with additional work to relocate existing turnstiles to complete the security requirements of their re-modelled perimeter.

Having had no issues with the existing turnstiles, which have been on this exposed site for many years, it was a logical decision to carry on using the same long lived robust reliable products to meet additional requirements at the site.


We at Clarke Instruments have a reputation for designing and manufacturing robust well engineered long lived reliable products.

It has been found on many occasions that properly maintained quality products, which have been built to last, save money in the long term. The inbuilt reliability of our turnstiles, when properly maintained and installed, reduces the need and inconvenience of unscheduled maintenance visits and charges.

If you need standard or client specific products let us help you with the solution.
