The Roadshow Brings In-Depth Education Direct to Partners In 2016, Boon Edam introduced the first “Roadshow” training program with the goal of bringing the success of its bi-annual factory trainings held in Lillington, NC direct to partners in their local area. For the 2019 training program, Boon Edam’s Training Manager, Zac Ellett, has created an improved curriculum which addresses the top five issues seen in the field for each product type, in addition to general installation, service and maintenance instruction. The Roadshow will stop in at least a dozen locations this year, focusing on areas where a large number of installations are about to occur. For this reason, the Roadshow schedule for the quarter will be released at the beginning of that quarter. Roadshow trainings are unique in that a specially-engineered, full-size security revolving door, security portal and/or optical turnstile are sent to each training location. Partners have the opportunity to work together to assemble the units and troubleshoot them on-site, gaining confidence and competence that will translate to improved performance in the field. 2019 Technical Training - Building Door.jpg Factory Training & Free Webinars In 2019, Boon Edam will continue to host four trainings at its factory location in Lillington, NC, with each session focusing on different product types. There will also be two AAADM A156.27 certification courses on public-use revolving doors throughout the year. Finally, Boon Edam will also provide four, free public webinars. This portable training method gives partners the convenience of learning on the road or at the office. “I’m proud to be coordinating a technical training program each year that can reach our valued partners and help them delight their customers,” said Ellett. “The response we’ve received over the past three years with our roadshow training has been overwhelmingly positive. We’ll continue to expand our training program and do all we can to support our partners.” For Further Information, Please Contact:Tracie Thomas, Boon EdamVice President of MarketingT 910 814 8239E tracie.thomas@boonedam.com For Media Queries, Please Contact:Sara Chaput, LRG MarketingPublic RelationsT 845 358 1801E schaput@lrgmarketing.com

Pharm Research Associates Choose Boon Edam Tourlock to Secure their Entry

Pharm Research Associates Choose Boon Edam Tourlock to Secure their Entry

Swansea, United Kingdom, November 13, 2018 – Pharm Research Associates Ltd. is a research center located in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1996, the center conducts commercial, physical and biological research and development. At their Swansea-based facility, Pharm Research Associates determined the need to upgrade the entrance door they had in place, which was no longer fulfilling their needs. Having successfully installed a Boon Edam Crystal TQ revolving door at their Reading head office, the company turned once again to Boon Edam for expert advice on upgrading their Swansea facility. “The original door had been installed by another entrance provider,” said Neil Simons, National Sales Manager, Boon Edam Limited UK. “Not only was it an older product, it also did not actually serve the true purpose of what our client required.” Access Controlled Entry Pharmaceutical companies require enhanced levels of security due to the sensitive data stored on site. There is always a critical need to monitor and control who is entering the building, to prevent the risks associated with unauthorized access. Beyond an access control solution to support the company’s high security requirements, there was a need to control the flow of people entering and exiting the building.  The center worked closely with Boon Edam to establish potential threats and ensure the appropriate level of security was incorporated into the new entry solution. It was important for the entrance solution to be correct, not only to meet the building’s requirements, but also to fit with the existing culture. Confident and Thorough Evaluation Boon Edam’s team met with the client to present a range of possibilities and alleviate on-site personnel concerns about the perceived access issues brought on by heightened security measures. After evaluating the range of entry options, the client chose Boon Edam’s automatic Tourlock 180+90 security revolving door with an aluminum finish for its entrance. “We had worked with Pharm Research Associates on their headquarters in Reading, so we knew the client well and were able to recommend the best solution for their needs,” said Simons. “With the facility storing sensitive clinical data, the Tourlock 180+90 was the perfect fit. Not only does it provide a stronger, more technical security solution for the building, it also allows for higher throughput levels.” The Tourlock 180+90 prevents unauthorized entry attempts (tailgating and piggybacking), while supporting simultaneous, bi-directional throughput – a level of security that precisely matched the client’s needs. The project took eight months from confirmation to installation, and despite some bad weather, Boon Edam installed the new door in only four days. Boon Edam also provided a complimentary customer orientation, to inform the management and staff how to properly use and care for the door throughout its lifetime.

Bodytech Aruba Deploys Boon Edam Turnstile

Bodytech Aruba Deploys Boon Edam Turnstile to Ensure “Members Only” Access

Lillington, N.C. – Oct. 31, 2018 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors has implemented their Speedlane 300 entry system at the Bodytech Fitness Club in Aruba. The resort island of Aruba in the Caribbean attracts millions of tourists looking for rest and relaxation as well as a large number looking to stay fit while on vacation. Visitors have been doing just that for over a year at the Bodytech Fitness Club which, according to their website, offers a spacious, air-conditioned gym and the best and latest Life Fitness equipment designed for their guests’ enjoyment. The gym even offers tourists two-week passes for utiliziation during their visit to the island. Easy and Fast Access Bodytech’s slogan is, “You won’t keep coming because you need to, you’ll keep coming because you want to”. Bodytech is open seven days a week, giving daily access to between 200 and 400 people. With the installment of a new Boon Edam Speedlane 300 optical turnstile, visitors are ensured fast and easy access to the gym. The Boon Edam Speedlane 300 offers a stringent level of security coupled with a modern and functional design that is “very strong and dependable” according to Fernando Metz, commercial director of Mexim Aruba, the installer of the access control system and the optical turnstile. The Speedlane 300 consists of two elliptical cabinets with angel wing barriers that retract into the units to allow passage to authorized users. Most striking about this entry solution are the lights that have been integrated into the angel wings. The barriers turn green when the lane is ready for use and red when the barriers are closing, or when an alarm has been triggered. The visitor immediately recognizes whether to enter the lane or wait for assistance. Efficient Security and Service The Boon Edam Speedlane 300 solution is not only attractive, it also provides biometric access control with fingerprint readers. This enables the club to determine which members have not paid, allowing the club to better control access to the facilities. "It's a very good product and we’ve never had any problems with it. It is very stable and does the job it needs to do," says Jason Gerlin, co-owner of Bodytech Aruba. “All of the employees like the fact that they dont need to spend time monitoring dates of the membership; its all automatic.” Easy Integration The Boon Edam entry system operates with open source software from the gym, facilitating the integration of new equipment and programs. Mr. Gerlin notes, "it's a very easy system to operate. It’s only been in service for a year and the return on investment has been outstanding”. He also highlighted the customer service and monitoring that Mexim Aruba has offered. "If there are any questions, they are more than willing to help." Mr. Metz recommends Boon Edam entry systems because of their quality and performance. In his opinion, "Nothing comes close in the market."

Liberty Global Uses Boon Edam Optical Turnstiles and Security Revolving Doors for Security

Liberty Global Elevates Entrance Security with Boon Edam Turnstiles, Security Revolving Doors

Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands – October 17, 2018 – Liberty Global is an international telecommunication and television company, and  also one of the largest internet service providers outside of the United States. Liberty Global operates in 14 countries and has over 35,000 employees. Consumer brands under the Liberty Global umbrella include VodafoneZiggo, Virgin Media, UPC, Unitymedia and Telenet. Higher Security Was Needed Still Liberty Global operates seven office buildings in Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands. This location employs around 1,600 people and has a strong emphasis on security as a top priority. Deploying a combination of technology, private security staff and a general security awareness program, Liberty Global was still in the market for additional, higher security measures. “We did have security at the main entrance, but it could not always prevent people from entering our central hall unnoticed,” said Simon Kuitert, Corporate Security Manager at Liberty Global. “Moreover, there were several entrances where visitors could enter along with employees, without being seen. Often, they were not yet in restricted or private spaces, but we would want to know who comes in our building. That is why we introduced ‘single point of entry’ during a recent renovation.” Mitigating Tailgating Through a “Single Point of Entry” Strategy Liberty Global deployed this “single point of entry” strategy at each of the seven buildings in Schiphol-Rijk. This means that employees and other guests are required to enter each building through one entry location, rather than multiple locations around the building perimeter. The company chose Boon Edam’s Lifeline Speedlane Swing optical turnstiles at its main building. This building has a receptionist present during office hours to welcome employees, visitors and vendors. The optical turnstiles combine security with aesthetics, and provide a high throughput. Due to an existing underfloor heating system that prevented drilling into the floor, the turnstiles were placed on a sleek platform for a seamless look. An access gate was also added for those in wheelchairs or with dollies and large packages. Higher security measures were implemented at the company’s other six buildings. Boon Edam’s Tourlock 180+90 security revolving doors ensure that only one authorized employee can enter the building at a time. If an unauthorized person attempts to follow an employee in the trailing compartment of the door, the door senses their presence and stops rotation of the door in a position that rebuffs the tailgating attempt yet allows the authorized person to continue. Working with a Quality Company Liberty Global chose to work with Boon Edam for their quality entrances. “They are not the least expensive, but the products are innovative, durable and aesthetically-pleasing,” stated Kuitert. “Before selecting Boon Edam, we chose another manufacturer for entrances because they were cheaper. That immediately became the bad buy of the year - it was one issue after another. Since we’ve implemented Boon Edam, we have experienced quality from the sales process through to service. They will not leave you out in the cold and I love that.”    Video of Liberty Global | Boon Edam Project    For Further Information, Please Contact:Tracie Thomas, Boon EdamVice President of MarketingT 910 814 8239E tracie.thomas@boonedam.comFor Media Queries, Please Contact:Sara Chaput, LRG MarketingPublic RelationsT 845 358 1801E schaput@lrgmarketing.com

With the highest level of security available in an entrance, the Circlelock security portal prevents intrusion into the most sensitive areas such as data centers. The Circlelock demonstration incorporates two-factor authentication with an AMAG Symmetry card reader on the outside of the portal plus an iris scanning technology from Iris ID to confirm identity. Boon Edam’s newest entry, the Circlelock Combi is a half-portal that transforms an existing swinging door into a high security mantrap entrance that prevents piggybacking – saving both space and renovation costs.
