A flapper gate is a type of security device that controls access to a room, limits the number of people entering, and prevents unauthorized entry by outsiders, and is sometimes called a security gate.
In the case of IC card authentication systems installed at entrances and exits, unauthorized entry is sometimes allowed, such as when multiple people enter a room using a single IC card, but a flapper gate is able to prevent this and increase security.
A flapper gate is available in two types: flap type and arm type (rotating type).
Flapper gates are used at building entrances and entrances to specific areas to prevent unauthorized passage.
They are also used for admission control at theme parks, museums, and event venues, as well as at automatic ticket gates.
In many cases, flapper gates are not installed alone, but in conjunction with security equipment such as security cameras and biometric identification to verify that the person entering is indeed that person.
Flapper gates serve to not only enhance security but also play a role in attendance and entry control.
The advantages of a flapper gate includes: "preventing trespassing," "preventing information leakage through enhanced physical security," "reducing costs by eliminating the need to install security guards," "making it easy for visitors to understand," and "being available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year." However, the advantages of this system cannot be fully utilized alone, so it must be used in combination with security cameras and some kind of authentication system.
In terms of countermeasures against infectious diseases such as new coronas, installing flapper gates with automatic temperature check and mask management functions can reduce labor costs for temperature checks and mask checks.
Compared to the arm type, the flapper type features a better flow of people.
One disadvantage of flapper gates is that they can become inoperable due to power outages. Security guards can cope with power outages, but flapper gates that operate by electricity will stop functioning in the event of a power outage. To maintain security, measures must be taken in the event of power failure.
