The building my office is in had recently installed the turnstile, which I didn’t know the name of the gate way until this lunch when me and Agnes saw the sign.
So the next time before we entered the lift, we had to pass through the turnstile with the building card as well as the usual scanning of the card in the lift to get to our office level.
One extra more step .
New word wor.
A turnstile, also called a baffle gate, is a form of gate which allows one person to pass at a time. It can also be made so as to enforce one-way traffic of people, and in addition, it can restrict passage to people who insert a coin, a ticket, a pass, or similar. Thus a turnstile can be used in the case of paid access (sometimes called a faregate when used for this purpose), for example public transport as a ticket barrier or a pay toilet, or to restrict access to authorized people, for example in the lobby of an office building.
