DePuy Tourniket Revolving Door Entrance

DePuy Synthes calls upon Boon Edam to revamp UK HQ

Ashford, United Kingdom - The DePuy Synthes Companies, part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, required an entrance refurbishment. With visitors coming from around the world, the reception area needed to better reflect the prestigious nature of the company. Boon Edam, a global market leader in entry solutions was appointed to provide a future proof product customised to the buildings requirements. Refurbishment Solution The refurbishment project to the 1970’s site in Leeds, had the aim of modernising the look of the building’s reception area, whilst providing enhanced security. With the door installation being the main design feature for the new reception, Boon Edam’s 140 years’ experience meant it was best placed to provide support throughout every stage of the project; from advising on the design and specification, to project management and installation. Following consideration of the building’s requirements Boon Edam suggested and installed its most versatile entry solution; a full automatic Tourniket Revolving Door, with a security system and collapsible doorset. The Tourlock 360N security function has an electromagnetic lock which is engaged when the door is parked. Once activated, overhead anti-entrapment sensors scan the door compartments for the presence of a user and stop in the rest position upon the user’s exit, engaging the electric locks. The collapsible leaves were added to the door specification as there is no pass door. Therefore, the Tourniket can be manually folded to increase the width, should it be required for large deliveries, disabled access or to allow for a high capacity throughput in the event of an emergency. This entrance solution features two modes available via the Tourniket’s control panel, for automatic operation of the door. Day mode is activated via infra-red detectors, providing ease of use and automatic parking of the door. Night mode activates access from an external control system or a push button located internally; the doors begin rotating for 180 degrees to allow one authorised user to enter the building before returning to a stationary position.  The Revolving Door Transformation The entrance formerly featured sliding doors which had made the area dark and unhospitable. Following the installation of Boon Edam’s Tourniket revolving door in a stainless-steel finish to further enhance the look of the entrance, the reception area was transformed to a light welcoming area. This solution also helps to prevent draft, dust and noise entering the building; as well as reducing the cold in the area, leading to increased building envelope efficiency. Geoff Firth, Boon Edam’s Area Specification Manager commented, “We are delighted to have provided a solution for DePuy Synthes. The Tourniket revolving door is a versatile option for any building requiring a bespoke solution, and the objectives were effectively met in terms of sustainability, service and security requirements.” DePuy Synthes has been committed to transforming the lives of patients worldwide since the 19th century and offers the world’s most comprehensive portfolio of orthopaedic and neuro products and services. The company offers products, services, programs and research and development capabilities for the advancement of healthcare.

Francis Crick Institute Boon Edam Revolving Doors

Boon Edam provides secure and stylish entry solution for The Francis Crick Institute

Ashford, United Kingdom - Boon Edam, a global market leader in entry solutions has unveiled a quality, engineered solution for a brand new, state of the art building in St Pancras; now home to The Francis Crick Institute. The biomedical discovery organisation, required an entry solution to seamlessly integrate with its new building’s modern design. A Flagship Research Facility The research centre, a flagship for UK biomedical science and one of Europe’s largest biomedical research facilities, is a base for 1500 scientists and staff, whilst housing technology to help create discoveries for illnesses such as cancer and heart disease. Therefore, the entry solution required advanced security to ensure staff, visitors and equipment could be kept safe and protected, whilst complimenting the design. The Experience to Deliver With 140 years’ experience with manufacturing entry solutions, Boon Edam ensures its products meet the strictest quality standards. The building is serviced by five Automatic Crystal Tourniket’s. This product was selected following an assessment of everyday use including analysing the number of visitors and size of luggage expected to be carried into the building whilst creating a user friendly and attractive gateway into the building supporting the green principles that were embedded into its design and carried through to its operation. A Solution to Compliment the Building Façade The revolving doors use a combination of laminated and toughened glass, which results in a reduction in the traditionally framed elements of the door. The minimalistic, all glass revolving doors provided a stylish solution which complimented the new building’s façade. They also met the security requirements; with each Crystal Tourniket supplied with an external night locking door. Finished in stainless steel, the additional feature provided a further layer of security for the building. The night locking door was mounted onto a stainless-steel track fixed to the glass soffit and provided with fully integrated locks. Ian Goldsmith, Head of Sales at Boon Edam Ltd commented, “We are thrilled to have provided the entry solutions for this building. The cross-border project between Boon Edam BV (Netherlands) and Boon Edam UK was successful in meeting the precise requirements of The Francis Crick Institute. The Crystal Tourniket’s have provided the new building with the secure, eye catching solution desired whilst utilising the environmental benefits of installing a revolving door.” For Further Information, please contact:Boon Edam LtdChelsey HoupsMarketing CoordinatorT +44 (0)1233 505 054E

Camden Council Circleslide Entrance Door

Boon Edam’s entry expertise ensures a bespoke solution for Camden Council’s BREEAM project

ASHFORD, UNITED KINGDOM - Camden Council’s new 14 storey building, 5 St Pancras Square is host to council offices, a leisure centre, café and a library. This innovative building is classed as one of the leading green buildings in the UK; having achieved an ‘outstanding’ BREEAM sustainability rating. Every part of the design required careful consideration to achieve this rating. So, when selecting the door entrances for the award-winning building, Boon Edam, the global market leader in entry solutions was consulted. The entry solution needed to fit the building’s sustainability, security, service and design criteria to seamlessly integrate with the existing design. With 140 years’ experience and a portfolio of products to accommodate a range of entry requirements, Boon Edam’s experts were able to provide the ideal solution using the Circleslide product range. Not only did the product successfully integrate with the building’s design; but it was also able to mitigate any concerns regarding energy loss. The Circleslide, consists of two sets of curved automatic sliding doors. This selection ensured that the elegant rounded look of a revolving door was achieved, along with meeting the high capacity throughput demands; realised by a wider throat opening design. This design of door is also DDA compliant in order to provide disabled access without the need for a separate pass door to be installed; this was a key criteria for the council building. The technology incorporated into the product’s mechanism ensures extremely quiet and smooth movement of the doors, whilst the air curtains installed inside the building lobby are designed to effectively reduce the air exchange and infiltration at entrances. This ensures that the entrance lobby can regulate the internal temperature as part of the building energy efficiency. Ian Goldsmith, Head of Sales at Boon Edam Ltd commented, “We are thrilled to have been able to provide an entry solution for this building. Through close collaboration, we were able to determine the exact requirements and provide the ideal solution for this outstanding project.”  For further information, please contact: Chelsey Houps - UK Marketing Coordinator t. +44 (0)1233 505900 email: For Press Enquires, please contact: Rebecca Smith t. +44(0)1303 262101 email:

Boon Edam’s Swinglane 900 Wide

Boon Edam Ltd announces release of new, updated BIM Objects

ASHFORD, UNITED KINGDOM - Boon Edam, the market leader in innovative and quality entry solutions, has announced its latest partnership with The National BIM Library. The fastest growing Building Information Modelling (BIM) library in the UK will showcase the entry experts’ two latest product releases; the Swinglane 900 Wide and the Speedlane 900 Wide.  Following the UK government’s decision to make the use of BIM mandatory on all public-sector projects, BIM has altered the way in which buildings, infrastructure and utilities are planned, designed and managed. Boon Edam, the first manufacturer of revolving doors to offer BIM objects, has ensured its product range is readily available to support architects and contractors throughout their BIM projects. The NBS National BIM Library now hosts 17 of its products, available in both Revit and IFC. The Swinglane 900, is a fail-safe security barrier composed of slim, stainless cabinets, a glass swinging door wing and an advanced sensor system. The long detection lane creates accurate tailgating detection and high capacity throughput of up to 30 people per minute. This product is designed to reduce the pressure on staff to track visitors, by accurately recognising that only authorised visitors can enter certain sections of the building. The Swinglane 900 allows for certain bespoke customisations to be made for clients requiring a unique style and finish.  Like all Boon Edam secured entry solutions, the Speedlane 900 can be easily integrated with virtually any access control system. A high capacity throughput of 30 people per minute can be achieved due to the design of the quick sliding motion of the door wings. With multiple door wing heights available, it has been specifically created to adapt to the requirements of a security entrance system. The glass construction of the door wings and the rounded cabinet design ensures a comfortable, non-intrusive user experience.  The Swinglane 900 Wide and the Speedlane 900 Wide are both compliant with DDA legislation; with both products providing suitable entrance solutions when catering for disabled access lanes. The width of the disabled access lanes can be adapted from the standard 500mm to 900mm, depending on the requirements of the building. This is achieved through the design of the two door wings, ensuring that the level of security is not compromised.  Using its dedicated, internal Specification Managers and CAD technicians, Boon Edam can support its customers to ensure the correct products are specified at design stage helping to give greater clarity for all stakeholders across the project lifecycle.  Notes to Editors:  The full Swinglane 900 and Speedlane 900 ranges are now included within one BIM object accessible via the NBS National BIM Library – for the Swinglane 900 range download here and for the Speedlane 900 range download here.
