Fastlane has long been a leader in the optical turnstile market and our speed in acting on and achieving certification under UL 2593 is another example of such leadership.

Smarter Security, Inc., provider of premium, innovative entrance control and outdoor security solutions, today announced the availability of a new model of Fastlane GlassGate 250 certified under the UL 2593 standard. UL recently introduced the standard 2593 for “Motor Driven Turnstile Operators and Systems,” and GlassGate 250 is the first speedgate in the industry to earn this UL listing. Work has begun on UL review of additional Fastlane optical turnstile models which should achieve certification in the first half of 2013.

“Fastlane has long been a leader in the optical turnstile market and our speed in acting on and achieving certification under UL 2593 is another example of such leadership,” said Jeff Brown, CEO of Smarter Security. “As buildings face more stringent code requirements and tighter enforcement during construction projects, we are pleased to supply them with UL 2593 certified optical turnstiles that streamline the building inspection process, reduce risk, and lower project costs that come with surprises and late-stage delays.”

Fastlane GlassGate 250 just completed the final step of the UL certification process and the new models will begin shipping in early 2013. The Canadian CSA C22.2 No. 247 – Operators and Systems of Doors Gates, Draperies and Louvers – was also included in the UL testing giving GlassGate 250 a Canadian UL listing as well. Fastlane GlassGate 150, Fastlane Plus and GlassWing™ models are expected to achieve certification in early 2013 which will provide Smarter Security’s customers a choice of UL listed Fastlane turnstiles for lobby entrance control.    

UL 2593 certification provides assurance to building owners and managers that GlassGate 250 meets the highest user and fire safety standards for speedgate products and may help buildings meet insurance or permit mandates. UL 2593 is a standard for Motor Driven Turnstile Operators and Systems and covers electric turnstile operators and systems rated 250 V or less. It was released in April, 2011 as an alternative to the established UL 325 standard intended for electric operators for Doors, Draperies, Gates, Louvers and Windows Operators and Systems. Both standards fall under the UL category code FDDR (FDDR7 for Canada).
