We at Clarke Instruments have been working with a major food preparation company based in the West Country. They decided to re-evaluate their perimeter security.
They were having tail gating problems and with their peak period, Christmas, looming and the consequent heavy reliance on temporary and agency staff they felt a need to do something to improve perimeter security.
After initial discussions and a site survey they decided on the ever popular and rugged 480A-209 double turnstile. This could be used effectively to establish tighter controls on entering and exiting the site. The turnstile which is bi-directional on both walkways in normal operation was ideal, given the volume of people entering and exiting. The Customer also took advantage of the built-in fire alarm relay and auxiliary power supply to power their own bio-metric controls.
As this is one of our most popular products we were able to supply from stock so from order to delivery and installation was complete in under 2 weeks.
Another satisfied customer and a promise to use us in future developments.

A health care company has chosen our products to help secure their premises on the outskirts of London.
After in-depth meetings to discuss and agree the design with our client, the products selected were two 480B-200 turnstiles with rain covers and one motorised gate.
The site has two entry points requiring control of access. One required a turnstile only while the other needed a turnstile and a full height automated gate to one side to facilitate disabled access. Our customer also requested rain covers to be fitted over the turnstiles.
As this was a supply and installation contract our installation department liaised with the client project manager to ensure all necessary ground works were finished prior to the agreed dates for install. This enabled us to complete the site installation quickly and efficiently, to the satisfaction of all parties.
The control board supplied with our products enabled the existing access control equipment to be seamlessly integrated without incurring additional costs. Our built-in fire safety relay was linked in to our client’s safety systems.
The following week our client, who was project managing various works on site, wrote to us saying, “Thanks very much to you and your team for your help with the successful installation of the two turnstiles last week. Our client is very happy.”
Due to the success of this project we have been asked to submit quotes for similar work on other health care sites.
This again demonstrates our ability to design, manufacture and install tailored security solutions for clients in a timely and cost effective manner.
If you take security seriously, you will be delighted with our turnstiles and gates.

Clarke Instruments Limited has recently completed a project for a long standing customer in Salisbury in conjunction with Chubb UK Limited.
The domestic property was experiencing a nuisance operation of the automated gate call point which was installed and is serviced by CIL. The extent of the nuisance was such that the owners decided to have a security camera installed with digital recording and monitor at the gates.
The new installation would have required an additional control enclosure and a new power supply to be run over a distance of 150 meters until CIL offered to uninstall the existing gate controls, leaving enough room for the new camera equipment to be mounted in the bottom of the enclosure. Another agreeable result of this work is that the customer has also gained a free service of the gate automation equipment.
We’ve designed, manufactured and installed at the Heathrow T2 construction site a second generation of turnstile units. Designed to be installed externally and controlled via a facial re-cognition system.
