National Law Enforcement Museum Celebrates Law Enforcement History with Boon Edam Revolving Doors

Lillington, N.C. – January 22, 2020 – The National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, D.C. offers citizens and law enforcement professionals a place to share in the vibrant story of American law enforcement.The museum, which opened in October 2018, is located in Judiciary Square, across from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, and just blocks from the National Mall and numerous DC landmarks. It tells the story of American law enforcement by providing visitors with a “walk in the shoes” experience. It is dedicated to expanding and enriching the relationship shared by law enforcement and the community through educational journeys, immersive exhibitions and insightful programs and community partnerships. It houses more than 21,000 objects from every era of law enforcement in multiple exhibits.Some of the unique exhibits include “911 Emergency Ops,” where visitors take on the role of a 911 operator, hearing scripted 911 calls and dispatching first responders to assist; and “Take the Case”, which invites visitors to use actual law enforcement techniques to collect and analyze evidence, interview suspects, and solve simulated crimes.An exhibition called “To Serve and Protect” describes a specific event from the perspectives of law enforcement officers, victims, and bystanders. Real-life events, such as the law enforcement response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, help tell the stories of officers who relied on training, instinct, and courage to protect citizens.   Museum’s Unique Construction and Design The design and construction of the museum is uniquely modern. First, the 55,000 square foot museum is mostly located underground. The museum’s is only visible via two, all-glass pavilions that mark its presence on the street.While the museum’s exterior is contemporary, with an all-glass facade that allows for ample light, the exterior fits in with the architecture of the other buildings in the area.  “We had to go through a very strict design process with the architects and with the District of Columbia, the Commission of Fine Arts, and the Washington D.C. Historical Preservation Office,” says Paul Larson, Sr. Director of Security and Museum Operations for the museum.   The museum's top floor, the only one above ground, houses the two pavilions that are open to the public. The next floor down holds the cafe and the museum store, while the exhibits are on the lowest level. Buckley & Associates Inc. designed the building and Clark Construction served as the general contractor. The museum received LEED Silver certification in February of 2019, and was the first LEED Silver certified museum in Washington, D.C. Boon Edam’s All Glass Doors Complement the Museum’s Modern Design The museum has quickly become a popular visitor attraction – on average, 300 to 500 visitors tour it each day. “During National Police Week and the weeks leading up to it, we average about 3,000 people a day,” Larson says. “We have a candlelight vigil on one of the nights that is attended by tens of thousands of people on the National Mall, in addition to multiple celebrations during the week. During this peak time, we typically have 150 visitors enter the museum’s doors every 15 minutes.”The two pavilions are the primary entrance and exit for visitors to the museum. The East Pavilion welcomes visitors and directs them to a security screening area and then downstairs to the Visitor Services area where they enter the exhibits area. Visitors exit from the West Pavilion. There are separate entrances for individuals with disabilities.The museum needed two door solutions that would allow for high traffic throughput on a daily basis, would fit into the design elements, and would be energy efficient in both hot and cold weather.The museum’s architect chose two Boon Edam BoonAssist TQ manual revolving doors with all glass doorwings to achieve those goals. The doors are constructed primarily from glass with only a few stainless steel components to ensure structural strength. Their design fits seamlessly with modern glass facades such as the museum’s pavillions, or in more traditional or classic building designs. A BoonAssist revolving door has a low-energy drive to assist users as they push the door wings, as well as speed control for safety and automatic positioning back to “home” position when the door is not in use. The positioning feature maximizes the air seal to prevent unwanted air infiltration from the outdoors.    Boon Edam Doors Live Up to Their Reputation and Save Energy Larson has been impressed with the Boon Edam doors. “The doors are performing at a very high level, standing up to the high visitor traffic, and they look great,” Larson says. “The lighting inside of the doors makes the two glass pavilions really pop, especially at night.”Larson also notes that the doors are living up to their solid reputation of being highly energy efficient. “They keep the cold air out and the warm air in,” he says. “The doors have good insulation. When people come inside through the doors on a hot day, they get a wonderful breeze of cold air. We want our guests to go through the revolving doors. They’re energy efficient and the museum is an LEED-certified building...which is another reason why we chose the Boon Edam doors.”Larson says he receives many positive comments from building engineers about the door’s construction, design and aesthetics. “Our building engineer and the building engineers from the surrounding buildings took a very close look at the doors’ construction. They were very impressed by how easily they rotate, yet at the same time, they will stop in a precise place, just like they are designed to do.” For Further Information, Please Contact:Tracie Thomas, Boon EdamVice President of MarketingT: 910 814 8239E: tracie.thomas@boonedam.comFor Media Queries, Please Contact:Jayme Cunningham, LRG MarketingPublic RelationsT: 845 358 1801E: jcunningham@lrgmarketing.com

The door also included a few features unique in a Crystal revolving door: a solid canopy, a bronze anodized finish and LED halo lighting. Additionally, automatic door wing locking was included to enhance security after-hours; access control card readers were installed to allow for safe after-hours entry for authorized staff. Reception_Type3_HaloCloseup_small.jpg Optical Turnstiles for Increased Lobby Security As a secondary line of control and security just inside the front doors, a set of Lifeline Speedlane Slide optical turnstiles were installed at either side of the lobby’s reception desk.

Boon Edam Publishes Whitepaper on using Security Entrances for Regulatory Compliance

Lillington, North Carolina, November 21, 2019 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, has published a useful whitepaper for security professionals titled “The Role of Security Entrances in Regulatory Compliance.” The whitepaper provides information and guidance on how security entrances can be selected and deployed to help organizations comply with regulations such as NERC, PCI, FDA, and others. The whitepaper aims to help the security manager understand the intent of access control requirements in regulations and how those requirements can be met using barriers that address the risk of tailgating or piggybacking at entry points. Controlling Access with Security Entrances Traditional facility entrances no longer provide the necessary protection necessary for today’s volatile security landscape. Swing doors do not mitigate tailgating and piggybacking, even when used in conjunction with access control devices. As a result, security doors and turnstiles are growing in popularity due to their ability to effectively control access while creating an audit trail, which is ideal for regulated industries. This guide outlines how security entrances can create a defensible posture through conducting a needs assessment, implementing access control with security entrances to provide metrics, deploying supervision as needed, delivering staff training, and retaining records.“Most industry regulations require securing the premises from physical intrusion but don’t specifically describe a method or technology to use,” said Greg Schreiber, Senior Vice President of Sales at Boon Edam Inc. “When implementing a physical security plan, you need to know the strengths and weaknesses of the technology so you can compensate with people and procedures. We’re pleased to offer a whitepaper to help security professionals in integrating security entrances as part of a defensible strategy for mitigating risk and liability at regulated facilities.”   “The Role of Security Entrances in Regulatory Compliance” is now available on the Boon Edam website here.
