Supervisor 5000 Optical Turnstile Gains ETL Certification to UL-325 Standard

Earning an ETL Mark validates our continued commitment to providing safe and reliable products to our customers

Alvarado, a leading U.S. manufacturer of optical, full height and waist high turnstiles, announced today that it has successfully gained ETL certification for its Supervisor 5000 motorized barrier optical turnstile. The SU5000 has been tested and found to comply with the requirements of UL Standard 325 and CSA C22.2 #247. This is the first time that a barrier panel optical turnstile has been granted an ETL certification for UL Standard 325. The ETL Mark from Intertek is proof that a product has been tested by an independent laboratory and meets the requirements of the applicable product safety standards for the US and Canada.

“Since 1956, Alvarado has been focused on delivering quality products. Earning an ETL Mark validates our continued commitment to providing safe and reliable products to our customers,” said Bret Armatas, CEO and President of Alvarado.

The SU5000 provides employee access control in corporate lobbies. Its thin profile and beautiful design is suitable for Class A buildings. The SU5000’s sophisticated detection technology detects unauthorized access attempts, prevents “tailgating” behind authorized users and provides highly effective entry control. The SU5000 has a number of aesthetic options. Etched corporate logos can be added to the barrier panels and panel logos can be illuminated with low-voltage LEDs in a variety of colors. Finishes to match existing decors can be provided.

Like all Alvarado optical turnstile products, the SU5000 easily integrates with any access control system.
