The Compagnie des Alpes, a major player in the European leisure and recreation industry, has installed 22 TTR-04W all-weather turnstiles by PERCo at leisure parks in the French capital as the first leg of a large project in the Alps. For this massive scale project involving installation of 700 turnstiles at ski resorts in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy and the Netherlands, and 100 turnstiles at leisure parks, the Compagnie des Alpes has chosen to use PERCo products. Before taking the decision, the Compagnie des Alpes subjected the turnstiles to thorough field operational testing. Pleased with the results, the company began the installations.
The first 22 TTR-04W all-weather turnstiles are installed at Le Parc Astérix and La Mer de Sable, the largest theme amusement parks in France. 14 of the turnstiles are used for access control at the main park entrance, another 8 control group access. The daily traffic through the turnstiles is expected up to 20,000 persons during a high season.
