Boon Edam Turnstiles

Below is an email we received from Boon Edam Turnstiles about two of our installers.  We love to see and share these moments with you.



My name is Chris H. from Boon Edam.

I would like to pay compliments to the two gentlemen that your company provided for the State Farm install.

They were very sharp, they worked hard and were very inquisitive. We never had to keep them busy as their work ethic was great.

It seems that everyone nowadays is quick to criticize, but slow to compliment, so I am glad to pass along this report.  I wish that I ran into more technicians like this everyday.

I look forward to working with Jimmy and Connor again the next time I am in Florida!  Thank you very much for sending out such fine motivated individuals.

Amusement Park Turnstiles

Amusement Park Turnstiles Solution by FDC

In September of this year FDC was brought in to custom build an access solution for Skywheel in Panama City Beach, FL involving amusement park turnstiles.  This giant Ferris wheel overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and Pier Park, and has 12 entry/exits that needed to be controlled with individual pedestrian gates.  This large amusement can be loaded five gondolas at a time.

FDC’s custom built cabinet houses the controls for each bi-parting wing gate, which allow the operator to open/close access to each loading lane for the ride either individually or all at once.  Five buttons control entry with two buttons that open all or close all at any given time.  Three buttons control the exit, left, right and center.  Two more buttons offer the open all and close all options for the exit side as well.
