Boon Edam announced they are emphasizing the theme of tailgating at the GSX exhibition in Las Vegas, NV from September 25-27. Boon Edam is also the official turnstile sponsor of the show. 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.

To upgrade security at the BancoEstado 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.

Nearly 1000 teams of architects from around the world competed to design an important new building – a “Tall Emblem Structure” that would promote “the new face of Dubai”. The selected winner was the iconic Dubai Frame, and when its doors opened to the public in January 2018, those doors were automatic revolving doors from Boon Edam. Situated in Zabeel Park in Dubai, The Dubai Frame is expected to be a major tourist destination attracting two million people a year. It is an impressive structure, with two 150 meter vertical towers connected by a 105 meter horizontal structure at the top to form an enormous frame.
Heart of America Group doesn’t just operate hotels and restaurants – it engineers, designs, builds, and operates them, all with the intent that the company will be owning them for many years and bringing value to customers and to the communities in which they reside. The Moline, Illinois-based company has grown considerably since it opened its first restaurant in 1978, The Machine Shed, a 100-seat restaurant in Davenport, Iowa, that was dedicated to the American farmer.
When Crafthouse USA CEO and founder Evan Matz moved from Florida to Virginia several years ago, he realized that the sunny, tropical weather had not followed him there. In the winter, at some of his first restaurants, he noticed an issue with the entry. At one property, as customers entered through a pair of swinging doors, the cold winter air rushed inside and everyone in the dining room wanted to be far away from the entrance. At another location, he had a vestibule with two swinging doors; this better controlled the influx of cold air but took up a lot of expensive, interior space. Matz decided back then that he needed a different entrance solution for his restaurants – a revolving door.
Liberty University, a private university in Central Virginia, provides a comprehensive curriculum with a Christian background for more than 110,000 students enrolled across the University’s 17 colleges, schools, and online programs. The safety and security of students and faculty is a priority and has resulted in the implementation of state-of-the-art physical security measures. The LaHaye Fitness and Recreation Center located on Liberty University’s Lynchburg campus is a prime example. The large facility, which occupies approximately 165,000 square feet, houses five basketball courts, an indoor track, a weight room, group exercise classrooms, raquetball and volleyball courts, soccer fields, and a rock wall in addition to a lounge and cafe.
Boon Edam announced that as part of a continuous policy to certify products to North American standards, the Speedlane Swing and Open optical turnstiles have been tested and certified to conform with UL standards 325 and 2593, and CSA 22.2 for Canada. UL Standards 325 and 2593, as well as CSA C22.2 (the harmonized standard in Canada) are the prevalent industry standards for ensuring the safe operation of doors, turnstiles, gates and access control equipment in the United States and Canada.
Boon Edam 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.
