Boon Edam Full Height Turnstiles Redesigned for Better User Experience

Boon Edam Launches Improved Full Height Turnstiles

Lillington, North Carolina, September 25, 2018 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced the launch of an updated Turnlock full height turnstile that offers increased performance and an improved experience for users and installers alike. The update focuses on the design of the speed control mechanism and the overall construction of the turnstile’s top channel, providing improved rotation action and a significant reduction in overall weight of the top channel. In addition, the optional, emergency backup battery lasts twice as long as before.     Video of Basic Done Well | Improved Full Height Turnstile Design    Controlling Access in Harsh, Outdoor Environments Boon Edam’s Turnlock full height turnstiles are used around the world to allow only authorized personnel access into secure environments. Typically installed outdoors, their durable construction and efficient operation provide security access even in harsh weather conditions. They serve as visual deterrents against intrusion at perimeter fence lines of corporate headquarters, critical infrastructure locations, distribution centers, amusement parks and more. Quiet Operation, Controlled Speed for Safe Passage The speed control mechanism in a full height turnstile ensures a safe rotation speed during use by dampening or absorbing excessive force when the rotors are pushed. The new and improved mechanism fulfills this purpose by providing a smooth rotation experience while also minimizing the force needed for a user to push the rotor. The rotor also slows down gently as it completes rotation, stopping in place to await the next user. The operation is quiet, smooth and subtle, without vibration, creating an optimal user experience. Leaner, Lighter Construction…Doubled Battery Backup Time The updated Turnlock now features a narrower top channel that weighs 70 lbs. lighter than the previous version, making installation much easier for contractors. The top channel is now only 8 inches wide, compared to the 18-inch diameter used previously.Finally, the optional battery backup has been completely redesigned and updated using the latest technologies. The battery backup keeps a turnstile working in case the power goes out and the coverage period has now doubled from two hours to four hours of protection. The size and weight of the battery system has also been cut in half, contributing to ease of installation.The updated features are available on all 3-rotor, single and tandem Turnlock 100, 150 and 200 models. Also, the redesigned top channel and speed control can be easily retrofitted into existing, installed Turnlock turnstiles.“We are always taking steps to improve our products, even a workhorse like the Turnlock, demonstrating our objective of ‘Basic Done Well,’ ” said Tom Schneider, Engineering Manager at Boon Edam Inc. “The quiet action and smooth rotation work well indoors or outdoors and contractors will definitely notice a significantly lighter top channel that is much easier to lift and install in the field. We think our customers will appreciate these performance upgrades and we’ll continue to listen to their feedback.”All Boon Edam full height turnstile models have been tested and certified to conform to UL Standard 294, a prevalent industry standard for ensuring the safe operation of turnstile equipment in the United States.

Boon Edam Exhibits at GSX 2018

Boon Edam is All About Tailgating Prevention at GSX 2018

Lillington, N.C. – Sep. 12, 2018 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced they are emphasizing the theme of tailgating in booth #1715 at the GSX (formerly ASIS) exhibition in Las Vegas, NV from September 25-27. GSX is an annual event that brings together 22,000 participants from across the security profession for a week of networking, educational opportunities and discovering the latest security solutions. Boon Edam is also the official turnstile sponsor of the show. Tailgating Mitigation through Integrated Technologies Access technologies are critical for granting or denying entry to secure areas within a building. However, these solutions are only effective at mitigating tailgating when coupled with security entrances. This complete solution ensures only one person enters per valid authorization. The following solutions will be on display in Boon Edam’s booth: 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. 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 Combi: This half-portal solution is the newest entry from Boon Edam. The Combi 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. 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. New! Lifeline Boost: A brand new, stylish access control pedestal designed by Boon Edam to perfectly complement the popular Lifeline optical turnstile series. The Boost is suitable for the integration of a variety of access control systems, ranging from card readers and barcode scanners to various biometric devices. BoonConnect: 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 We’re celebrating our position as the market leader for security entrances, according to a recent report by IHS Markit®, with a tailgating-themed prize giveaway. All visitors to GSX are invited to participate by visiting booth #1715 during show hours. Participants have the opportunity to win a variety of prizes that will help them make the most of the upcoming tailgating season: the Big Green Egg® grill, a YETI® cooler, StubHub™ tickets and much more. Winners will be selected at random after the exhibition, and an announcement will be made to all participants via email on October 5.

BancoEstado in Chile Uses Speedlane Slide Optical Turnstiles to Manage Entry and Mitigate Tailgating

BancoEstado Upgrades Access System with Boon Edam Optical Turnstiles

Lillington, N.C. – Aug. 9, 2018 – BancoEstado has been operating for more than 160 years, and is established as the most important financial institution in Chile. With more than 400 branches, it supports over 12 million customers in different regions of the country and has branch offices in Santiago City, Valparaíso, Maule, Biobío and Araucanía. The bank offers a wide range of products, such as taxpayer ID accounts, checking and savings accounts, insurance, investment options, as well as financial solutions for Chilean people residing overseas. BancoEstado is recognized as an excellent financial services provider due to its consistency in project development and innovation while also focusing on improving the quality of life for the community. BancoEstado has consistently maintained a spirit of innovation by focusing on the constant improvement of their service offering and the underlying security of customer information. Enhanced Security and Identity Verification To upgrade security at the main headquarters building in Santiago and comply with the strict security measures required by an institution its size, BancoEstado deployed a comprehensive access control strategy that included using three of Boon Edam’s Speedlane Slide optical turnstiles to prevent tailgating by unauthorized pedestrians. The turnstiles were integrated with a Kantech access control system to validate who is authorized to enter the secure area. In addition, a special MorphoWave Tower was installed in front of each turnstile to house the MorphoWave technology by IDEMIA (previously Safran), a state-of-the-art, touchless fingerprint identification technology. This technology assures the identity of the user matches credentials prior to entering through the turnstile. “Besides the capability of integrating with our existing equipment, the reason for choosing Boon Edam solutions was based on the bank’s need to modernize its corporate image which included renewal and improvement of access points”, explained Álvaro Abarca, Project Coordinator at ACCEDER, the security integrator responsible for the project. According to Abarca, the aesthetic aspect was decisive when choosing the type of turnstile to be installed since they would be placed in one of the main entrances of the bank. “Undoubtedly, the quality and architecture of Boon Edam products made them ideal for BancoEstado”, said Abarca. Abarca was also pleased to say the installation was performed seamlessly in a single weekend. At the end of the process, everyone could appreciate how the solution not only blended in with the beautiful architecture but provided the benefits of enhanced security and identity verification. Increased Responsiveness and Aesthetics The Speedlane Slide is part of the Lifeline Series of optical turnstiles, which are unique in the market due to their intuitive and responsive light display system. The turnstile “sleeps” to save energy and awakens when a user approaches. A band of light defines the front of the cabinet and an arrow signal points to the lane that is ready for the user. Once the user is authorized, the barriers open, and as the user moves through the lane a trail of light leads the way. The Lifeline Series is also distinctive for its sleek design that features curved tops, tapered cabinets and a minimal footprint, features that complement Class A interiors. Each turnstile is also made of premium materials like stainless steel and glass making them a durable and practical investment in physical security. Overall the turnstiles are ergonomic, functional and comfortable. Results According to the representative of ACCEDER, the new, modern entrance system had a very positive impact on the bank’s security profile. In addition, the intuitive design and architectural specifications provided the best solution for BancoEstado. “We completed the project seamlessly, and the turnstiles are already working. Undoubtedly, we recommend Boon Edam solutions because they are the best option to address high traffic issues, and they are top-rated in terms of quality and design”, concluded Abarca.For Further Information, Please Contact:Tracie Thomas, Boon EdamVice President of MarketingT 910 814 8238E tracie.thomas@boonedam.comFor Media Queries, Please Contact:Sara Chaput, LRGPublic RelationsT 845 358 1801E
