Introducing New Compact Turnstile and Demonstrating Integrated Solutions at ISC West

Lillington, North Carolina, February 12, 2020 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced they are introducing a new optical turnstile, the Speedlane Compact, in a world premiere, in booth #8037 at the ISC West exhibition in Las Vegas on March 18-20. ISC West is the largest security event in North America bringing together close to 30,000 participants for networking, education and discovery of new technology. In addition to showcasing this newest member of their premium optical turnstiles, the company will also be showcasing fully integrated solutions that address physical perimeter security and control pedestrian access. Boon Edam is also the official turnstile sponsor of the show. Integrated Technologies for True Tailgating Mitigation Access technologies, such as card readers and biometric devices, are critical for controlling entry to secure areas within a building. However, these solutions are only effective at mitigating tailgating when coupled with the appropriate entrance solution. Swinging doors do not stop authorized people from holding the door and letting in others. Security entrances coupled with access technologies provide a complete solution that ensures only one person can enter per valid authorization.The following solutions will be on display in Boon Edam’s booth: The NEW Speedlane Compact Optical Turnstile: Following the enormous success in the high-end speed gate market with the top-selling Lifeline Series, the development began to fill the market need for a premium quality, mid-range product. Thus, the Speedlane Compact was created, a swinging barrier turnstile that offers easy installation and integration with access technology and attractive delivery turnaround times.“With this new product, we have a solution that fits in everywhere – both in dimensions and design, without compromising on safety, security or quality,” said Mark de Jong, Product Manager of the Security Products Portfolio. SL Compact 03_small.jpg   Lifeline Speedlane Swing Optical Turnstile: There will be two, sleek Speedlane Swing turnstiles in the booth featuring unique identity recognition technologies to demonstrate efficient and secure throughput. One Speedlane Swing will feature a custom, integrated pedestal that incorporates the MorphoWave™ Compact touchless fingerprint technology from IDEMIA. The patented touchless sensor technology scans four fingers in 3D in less than one second, ensuring the most accurate and reliable fingerprint matching for maximum security. The second Speedlane Swing will feature AnyVision® facial recognition technology with enhanced AI capabilities.  Lifeline Boost Access Control Pedestal: The Boost is a stylish pedestal designed by Boon Edam to complement the popular Lifeline optical turnstile series and house virtually any access technology inside. The Boost will include the latest version of Essex’s credential card reader, the iRox-T, which now features Bluetooth and OSDP capabilities that expand HID Global’s Mobile Access solutions.  Tourlock 180+90 Security Revolving Door: The entrance of choice for the Fortune 500, the Tourlock provides the highest level of throughput (up to 42 people per minute in two directions) while preventing unauthorized entry. The Tourlock in the booth will include StereoVision™ piggybacking detection technology and an AMAG Symmetry card reader to demonstrate the combination of fast throughput with high perimeter security.  Circlelock Security Mantrap Portal: Offering the highest level of security available in an entrance using StereoVision™ piggybacking detection technology, the Circlelock security portal prevents intrusion into the most sensitive locations such as data centers. The portal will be configured to demonstrate two-factor authentication: an AMAG Symmetry card reader on the outside of the portal conducts the initial authorization, while facial recognition technology provides instant authentication inside the portal: the secure, edge-based facial recognition access control device by Alcatraz AI, called the Rock, ensures only the right person can enter.  BoonConnect Software: An IP-addressable, proprietary software system providing diagnostic and configuration tools for the Tourlock security revolving door and Circlelock mantrap portal. Users can remotely access door operations and events using devices such as a tablet, laptop or smartphone via a secured corporate network. Tailgating Prize Giveaway Boon Edam was confirmed as the market leader in Pedestrian Security Entrances in the Americas according to a report by IHS Markit® covering the 2016-2018 timeframe. To celebrate almost a decade of leadership, there will be a tailgating-themed prize giveaway in the booth.

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:

London’s 40 Lime Street Revives Office Building with Boon Edam Revolving Door and Turnstiles

Lillington, N.C. – December 11, 2019 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, is proud to announce that a revived office building in London, 40 Lime Street, has installed an all-glass Crystal TQ revolving door at the main entrance, in addition to two sets of Speedlane Slide optical turnstiles for increased lobby security. Upgrades to Meet Environmental and Security Concerns 40 Lime Street is an investment and reinvestment company that has served the London market since 1985. It sits among some highly sought-after, iconic London landmarks, such as Lloyds London, The Shard and 20 Fenchurch Street.Seeking to revitalize all 9 floors of the interior office space, lead architects MMoserAssociates made it their goal to brand the new space as a destination for brokers, with a stylish space to welcome visitors and guests inside the front doors. This included looking into new entrance solutions to meet both security and environmental concerns. Unique Glass Revolving Door for Comfortable Interior Architects specified a revolving door early into the design stage. With the building entrance on a main street, it was important that the entrance prevent the outside environment, including unconditioned air, noises, odors and debris, from penetrating into the lobby. They selected the Crystal TQ all-glass revolving door to minimize air infiltration while also providing a high aesthetic. 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. 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. The Speedlane Slide is known for its sleek design, the sliding motion of its barriers and its ability to offer quick throughput for users. The turnstiles’ aesthetics also fit into the new design of the office building, featuring glossy black glass and stainless steel accents.

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.
