Boon Edam Revamps Tripod Turnstiles, Emphasizing Smooth and Quiet Operation

Boon Edam Revamps Tripod Turnstiles, Emphasizing Smooth and Quiet Operation

Lillington, North Carolina, 25 April 2018 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced that its Trilock 60 and Trilock 75 turnstiles have a completely re-engineered internal mechanism that operates more smoothly and with an exceptionally quiet operation during use, when the arms are rotating into the next position. The turnstiles are quieter than before because the interior ratcheting and locking mechanism (which controls rotation of the arms to allow a single authorized passage) now has a redesigned shape while maintaining a secure functionality. In addition, rubber dampeners are used on certain contact surfaces to reduce the noise level of the standard “clicking” noise that turnstiles make. The result of the new design is that the operating noise of the turnstile during passage is reduced from 86 decibels down to 73 decibels, which is very noticeable in a side-by-side comparison.  The Workhorse of the Turnstile Family Tripod turnstiles are known for their sturdy construction and ability to withstand the harshest of conditions, both indoors and outdoors. They are used to manage large crowds at stadiums, amusement parks, museums, and universities, for example. However, waist-high turnstiles are also used in high-end, corporate lobbies to deter tailgating, provided supervision is nearby. To blend in to these environments, they can include premium finishes, such as expensive stone on the tops of cabinets and bronze or custom paint on the sides of cabinets. High-end locations will appreciate the quieter action of these newly updated tripod turnstiles. Redesigned for Efficiency and Cost Savings The new interior mechanism also is easier to build, install and service than before, creating efficiencies and cost savings for the customer during and after the purchase. In addition, older Trilock 60 and Trilock 75 turnstiles can be easily retrofitted with the new mechanism with a minimal amount of disruption or need for new parts.“When we began redesigning the mechanism for the Trilocks, we wanted to improve the customer experience and also make the product easier to build and install,” said Tom Schneider, Engineering Manager at Boon Edam Inc. “We’re proud that we’ve created that ‘win/win’ and the benefits will impact thousands of end users around the globe. It’s yet another reason to invest in products from Boon Edam.” For Further Information, Please Contact:Tracie ThomasVice President of MarketingT 910 814 8239E tracie.thomas@boonedam.comFor Media Queries, Please Contact:Sara Chaput, LRGPublic RelationsT 845 358 1801E schaput@lrgmarketing.com

Las Vegas, N.V. – Apr. 11, 2018 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, is demonstrating significant growth and momentum in both their product offering and their business operations this year at ISC West (booth #8037). With the expansion of their Enterprise Customer Group, a range of new integrations, and the growing adoption of anti-tailgating and piggybacking entrance tech by Fortune 50 Global companies, the company is advancing its position as the market leader in the Americas in security entrance solutions.“While we have held the lion’s share of the Americas market for security entrances since 2012, according to IHS Markit reports, we are moving ahead now on a number of business fronts,” said Mark Borto, President and CEO, Boon Edam, Inc. “Enterprise sales have become a major market for us as a result of our expanded focus on global standardization and deployment. At the same time, we are integrating the most advanced technologies with the combination of biometrics and anti-piggybacking solutions, addressing some of the most pressing challenges for risk mitigation.” Highlighted Products and Technologies in ISC West Booth 8037 Products on display in Boon Edam’s booth will showcase ease-of-use, speed and accuracy via integrated biometric technologies that enable multi-factor authentication combined with piggybacking prevention. Show attendees can experience the Circlelock security portal, a turnkey mantrap solution offering the highest security available in an entrance. It’s newly launched cousin, the Circlelock Combi “half portal” saves both space and costs by transforming any fire-rated swinging door into a high-security mantrap entrance that prevents piggybacking.Boon Edam’s Tourlock 180+90, the industry’s best-selling security revolving door, delivers high, bi-directional throughput while preventing tailgating and piggybacking. All of these solutions can operate without manned supervision as they incorporate Boon Edam’s proprietary StereoVision 2®, which prevents piggybacking using near infrared and optical sensors to determine if someone is entering the door alone, ensuring a level of reliability. In addition, the super-slim Lifeline Speedlane Swing stylishly combines high throughput with high security via biometric identification.Technology on display from Boon Edam this year enables remote access and control of security entrances. This includes BoonConnect software, which provides diagnostic and configuration tools for the Tourlock and Circlelock via smart device, and BoonTouch, enabling management of multiple Boon Edam security entrances through a desktop control panel. Focus on Expansion of Enterprise Customer Group An additional focus at ISC West this year is the expansion of Boon Edam’s Enterprise Customer Group. Originally launched in 2013 and now numbering at 11 employees, this sales and service team delivers exceptional entrance solution consulting, logistics planning and customer service to large national and global companies through every stage of the sales process. “Our Enterprise Group of dedicated specialists is bringing an unprecedented level of consultative expertise to the world’s biggest organizations,” said Mr. Borto. “We have put significant support behind this initiative so that we are correctly positioned to provide the best possible entrance solutions for this fast-growing segment of business.” Growing Risks and Liabilities Drive More Business As recognition of risks and liabilities grows, it has also driven the need for users to focus on hardening entrances and perimeters. Some of the risks include active shooters, cyber-threats, workplace violence, protests in urban areas and more. Boon Edam has seen market growth for their ability to stop a range of threats including tailgating and piggybacking. Other factors driving the company’s growth include the ability of their security entrances to facilitate identity verification, along with integrations between lobby turnstiles, elevator dispatch and visitor management systems.“We’re now seeing more security entrances being deployed in the upper elevator lobbies in multi-tenant properties as well,” said Mr. Borto. “Every organization has its own varied needs for identity verification and security at differing entrances, and we provide consultative support in helping them determine the right mix of products for their needs.”Boon Edam is the official turnstile sponsor for ISC West and 2018 marks the 11th year that exhibitors and attendees will walk through Boon Edam turnstiles as they enter the exhibit halls, making the turnstiles a familiar site at the show. This year the company unveils 34 lanes of the sleek Speedlane Open, a new, barrier-free optical turnstile designed for deterring casual intrusion attempts.   For Further Information, Please Contact: Tracie ThomasVice President of MarketingT 910 814 8239E tracie.thomas@boonedam.com For Media Queries, Please Contact: Sara Chaput, LRGPublic RelationsT 845 358 1801E schaput@lrgmarketing.com

Circlelock Semi Half Portal for Retrofit Application

New Circlelock Combi Mantrap Solution on Display at ISC West 2018

Las Vegas, N.V. – Apr. 11, 2018 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, is demonstrating a new security portal solution at their ISC West 2018 booth (#8037). The Circlelock Combi will help security executives combat piggybacking and unauthorized entry in existing high security areas that currently have fire-rated swinging doors. “Our new mantrap solution is a game changer for security managers who use fire-rated doors to protect their assets or data,” said Mark Borto, President and CEO of Boon Edam, Inc. “We designed the Circlelock Combi as a turn-key retrofit option to address the risk of tailgating that exists with swinging doors in facilities - once a swinging door is opened, anyone could slip inside behind an authorized user. But once the Combi is installed with that existing swing door, they still get all the benefits of a fire-rated entry, only now it’s a high security entrance that only lets authorized people enter and doesn’t need manned supervision.” The Circlelock Combi is a cylindrical mantrap portal solution that has a single sliding set of doors on one end and an opening on the other end that is mounted to an existing swing door. This also saves considerable space compared to traditional mantrap vestibules created from walls and two swinging doors. It provides a throughput of five to six people per minute and is ideal for any interior location where the most critical security is required. This could include data centers, government buildings, secure areas in airports, legal or patient record areas, prescription medication dispensaries, executive suites and more.   Many facilities use fire-rated swing doors to protect data and assets from destruction by fire, but this type of door cannot prevent tailgating or piggybacking. The Circlelock Combi attaches to the existing fire-rated door, converting it immediately into a mantrap solution that prevents piggybacking 24/7. One of the most important benefits of the Circlelock Combi is the enablement of multi-factor authentication – the ability to ensure that only one person, and the right person, is entering. Users can present a credential in front of the portal to open the sliding door and once inside and confirmed to be alone, can present another credential to unlock the swing door. The Combi can also accommodate a wide variety of identity verification technologies (iris scanner, facial reader, pushpad, etc.) in its interior with a customizable floor-to-ceiling post.  Boon Edam will feature the Circlelock Combi solution in their ISC West booth as a two-factor authentication scenario: initial authentication using an AMAG Symmetry card reader to enter the portal, followed by facial scanning technology from StoneLock Pro® to open the second door.   For Further Information, Please Contact: Tracie ThomasVice President of MarketingT 910 814 8239E tracie.thomas@boonedam.com For Media Queries, Please Contact: Sara Chaput, LRGPublic RelationsT 845 358 1801E schaput@lrgmarketing.com

Boon Edam to Showcase Security Entrance Integration at ISC West 2018

New Circlelock Portal Converts Fire-Rated Swinging Doors into Mantrap Solutions

Lillington, N.C. – Mar. 22, 2018 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced it is launching a new security mantrap portal solution, the Circlelock Combi. This unique, “half portal” solution helps security executives prevent unauthorized entry into high security areas currently using fire-rated swinging doors. The Combi will be on display in Boon Edam booth #8037 at the upcoming ISC West exhibition in Las Vegas, NV from April 11-13. The Inherent Risk of Swinging Doors Boon Edam designed the Circlelock Combi as a convenient retrofit option to address the risk that exists with any type of swinging door - once a swinging door is opened by an authorized user, any number of people may also gain access to a secure area, which is known as “tailgating” or “piggybacking.” Preventing Intrusion while Maintaining Integrity Many facilities use fire-rated swing doors to protect data and assets from destruction by fire, but this type of door cannot prevent tailgating or piggybacking. The Circlelock Combi attaches to an existing fire-rated door, converting it immediately into a mantrap solution that prevents piggybacking 24/7 and eliminates the need for manned supervision, all while maintaining the fire-rated benefits of the swing door. The Combi also saves considerable space compared to traditionally built mantrap vestibules that use standard walls and two swinging doors.The Circlelock Combi is a cylindrical solution that has a single sliding door on one end and an opening on the other end that is mounted to an existing wall and swing door. The Combi uses Boon Edam’s StereoVision 2® detection technology in the ceiling to scan the compartment and ensure a user is alone prior to unlocking the swing door. Security managers can choose to prevent piggybacking for both inbound and outbound traffic.   Enabling Multi-Factor Authorization The Circlelock Combi enables deployment of multi-factor authentication to ensure the identity of a confirmed, lone user. Users can present their first credential to enter the portal and then a second biometric credential (such as an iris scanner, facial or hand recognition), to unlock the second door. Virtually any verification technology can be mounted inside the Combi on an optional, floor-to-ceiling post.  New Security Mantrap Portal Solution: The Circlelock Combi    Video of New Circlelock Portal Converts Fire-Rated Swinging Doors into Mantrap Solutions    Applications and Throughput The Circlelock Combi can process five to six people per minute and is ideal for interior, sensitive locations such as data centers, government buildings, airports, legal or patient record areas, executive suites, and more.   At ISC West, Boon Edam will have the Circlelock Combi available for demonstrations with a two-factor authentication scenario using an AMAG Symmetry card reader to enter the portal, followed by facial scanning technology from StoneLock Pro® to open the swing door. Attendees are encouraged to stop by to see live demonstrations.

Safety First in The Evolution Tower

Moscow, Russia, March 2018 – We are proud to announce that our Russian subsidiary has been awarded the contract to secure the entrances to the prestigious Evolution Tower. A Secure Architectural City Landmark The building, also known as City Palace Tower or Wedding Palace, had undeniably become a new city landmark and we are honored to be selected in the project. Boon Edam Russia will be supplying 42 Lifeline Speedlane Swing optical turnstiles and 13 Winglock 900 access gates within the building. In a world now dominated by skyscraper cityscapes, the importance of a safe, yet still welcoming entrance solutions is paramount. The Evolution Tower’s 861,112.83 ft² office space and 387,500.78 ft² shopping and entertainment facilities, meant that high throughput with good security was a balance which needed to be met. Multifunctional Center for Everyone Located on the Presnenskaya Embankment of the Moskva River, the twisting building began construction in 2011 and is the brainchild of British architect Tony Kettle for Kettle Collective and Scottish artist, Prof. Karen Forbes from the University of Edinburgh. The building is a true masterpiece of well-thought out spaces including 4.94 acres of a landscaped public square, a 32.8 feet high ceremonial staircase, water features, offices and two stories of prime retail space, all connected to a metro station and bridge over the river. The concept inspiration comes from many places including the Rodin sculpture, ‘The Kiss’ and resembles two ribbons wrapping around one another, and as a nice finishing touch, has a ballroom on the top floor. The innovative design celebrates speed, energy and the modern urban Russian city life. It is a fantastic architectural and engineering statement. A Strong Collaboration Projects like these involve many collaborators, and for this one we are working with the below in our quest to secure the space: The Interior Designer: ElformaThe System Integrator: KomisThe Client: ZAO IntegratorBoon Edam Project leader: Sergey Loskutov Coming Soon Work has already begun on the project and we estimate completion in the Summer of 2018.

Boon Edam to Showcase Security Entrance Integration at ISC West 2018

Showcasing Security Entrance Integration at ISC West 2018

Lillington, N.C. – Mar. 8, 2018 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced it will emphasize integrated access control solutions in booth #8037 at the ISC West exhibition in Las Vegas, NV from April 11-13. ISC West is the largest security trade show in the United States, bringing together over 30,000 security professionals for its 3-day event. Boon Edam is also the official turnstile sponsor at the exhibition. Integrated Technologies for the Ultimate in Risk Mitigation Security entrances with integrated access and anti-tailgating technologies are helping security professionals manage risk and liability by preventing infiltration into their buildings. The following solutions will be on display in Boon Edam’s booth: Lifeline Speedlane Swing: The industry’s slimmest optical turnstile will feature a custom, integrated pedestal that incorporates the MorphoWave™ touchless fingerprint technology from IDEMIA. This solution enables high throughput with the enhanced security of rapid biometric identification, all in a stylish, cohesive design.  Circlelock: Offering 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 portal will be configured to demonstrate two-factor authentication: an AMAG Symmetry card reader on the outside of the portal conducts the initial authorization, followed by an iris scanning technology inside the portal from Iris ID called the iCAM7S Series reader, to confirm identity.  Circlelock Semi: The Circlelock Semi is the newest entry solution by Boon Edam. This clever solution transforms an existing swinging door into a high security mantrap entrance that prevents piggybacking. It also enables organizations to save on both space and renovation costs. In the booth, the half portal will demonstrate a two-factor authentication scenario: initial authentication using an AMAG Symmetry card reader to enter the portal, followed by facial scanning technology from StoneLock Pro® to open the second door.  Tourlock 180+90: The industry’s best-selling security revolving door will feature an AMAG Symmetry card reader to demonstrate access control integration paired with the door’s uniquely high, bi-directional throughput and its ability to prevent tailgating and piggybacking without manned supervision.  StereoVision 2®: A proprietary technology in Boon Edam’s Circlelock and Tourlock, StereoVision 2 prevents piggybacking by using a combination of near infrared and optical sensors to determine if someone is entering the door alone. Visitors to the booth will be able to see how they can calibrate the technology to obtain the mathematical probability of successful piggybacking prevention, thereby justifying their investment in high security doors and portals.  BoonConnect: An IP-addressable, proprietary software system provides 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.  BoonTouch: A proprietary desktop control panel with integrated software for efficient traffic management of many of Boon Edam’s security entrances. All Entrances to the Exhibit Hall to Feature New Turnstiles For the 11th year in a row, Boon Edam is the official turnstile sponsor of ISC West. For the first time, the company is excited to install 34 lanes of a new optical turnstile at the show entrances: the Speedlane Open, which features a barrier-free design ideal for deterring casual tailgating attempts. The Open turnstile is part of the sleek and modern Lifeline Series launched in 2015, which has helped propel Boon Edam to the market leading position for security entrances, according to “Pedestrian Entrance Control Equipment” by IHS Markit® for the 2014-2016 period.  For Further Information, Please Contact:Tracie ThomasVice President of MarketingT 910 814 8239E tracie.thomas@boonedam.comFor Media Queries, Please Contact:Sara Chaput, LRGPublic RelationsT 845 358 1801E schaput@lrgmarketing.com
