Why Revolving Doors?
The Challenge with Conventional Entrances
When sliding or swinging doors open they create a hole in the building, exchanging conditioned, comfortable air with the outdoors. They create frigid, unpleasant interior spaces during the winter and they “blow out” very expensive, air conditioned air in the summer. In both cases, the HVAC system must cycle more often to compensate for lost conditioned air and consume more energy. For businesses, the irony is that the busier an entrance is, the longer this “hole” is open, driving up costs that negatively impact higher sales. Think a large, double sliding door vestibule will help? Many smaller businesses know these consume valuable space that could be used for displays, merchandise or seating. And, when there is a lot of traffic, watch what happens: they remain open for long periods and the air exchange is still tremendous. It’s the same problem with another downside.
The Benefits of Revolving Doors
Revolving doors operate under the principle of "always closed, yet always open." This means that they create a constant seal, keeping the exterior climate where it belongs - outside. Beyond the energy-saving benefits, revolving doors offer additional benefits that far exceed their conventional counterparts:
• Slash energy bills and pay for themselves. How? Click here to find out.
• Reclaim comfortable square footage, right where it counts
• Use only a small amount of space
• Generate additional sales revenue (in some applications)
• Elevate the brand and create a great first impression
• Last for decades (with relatively inexpensive scheduled maintenance)
The Only Entrance Delivering a Return on Investment
Over the long run, revolving doors make sense for many reasons. By creating a comfortable interior and saving on space that can now be used for merchandise, seating, etc., revolving doors offer a return on investment in just a few years. If you have multiple locations, the ROI is also multiplied.
