Jebel Ali is the main seaport of DP World company – one of the largest port operators in the world, based in Dubai, UAE. DP World operations are equal to 10% of the global container traffic.

In order to ensure security and organise employees and visitor access to the territory of the port, PERCo RTD-15 Full height turnstiles were chosen.

The RTD-15 Full height turnstiles are designed for сomplete overlap of the passage zone and provide the highest security level. The turnstiles can operate in lock-chamber mode – a two-step mode with a pass-through verification.

Due to corrosion resistance, PERCo Full height turnstiles and swing gates can be operated both indoors and outdoors. Corrosive resistance and increased rigidity of the welded structure guarantees a long life cycle even in harsh environments. 

Six paint preparation stages for steel parts and nine stages for aluminium parts of PERCo turnstiles are used to prevent atmospheric corrosion. The surface is then painted with a powder coating ensuring long term outdoor use.

The first 50 turnstiles were installed in Jebel Ali Port as far back as 2009. During their years of operation, the turnstiles have shown not only reliability, but also high durability.

The exterior of the turnstiles also remained the same despite harsh weather conditions in the UAE: Heat, salt, humidity and sandstorms. Thus, when deciding upon the equipment for a new terminal, the RTD-15 turnstiles were chosen again.

23 RTD-15 Full height turnstiles were installed there in 2018.
