Boon Edam Launches High Security Connection Portal
Edam, The Netherlands – Today, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. announced the launch of the Circlelock Combi, a half portal which attaches to an existing door – therefore transforming the entrance into a high-security entrance capable of protecting against both unauthorised entries and piggybacking. The Smart Choice in Ultimate Security Entrances Renovation and construction costs can escalate quickly when locking down a highly sensitive area. Now you can attach the Circlelock Combi easily and quickly to either the secure or non-secure side of an existing swing door. The working principle is as follows: On authorisation, the portal’s interlocking door slides open allowing a user to enter the portal. An integrated security system confirms whether the user is alone and if so, the swinging door is unlocked, enabling passage into the secure area. A secondary biometric system such as facial recognition (by others) can be used to confirm identity inside the portal. Highest Protection The product’s developers and R&D department have answered the need for the highest level of unauthorised entry prevention at an unmanned area with this interlocking security portal. Using the most innovative and up-to-date technologies on the market, including the StereoVision piggybacking detection system, this security access solution offers complete peace-of-mind when it comes to keeping people and valuables safe and secure. Integration Opportunities As part of the development of the Circlelock Combi, our team have researched at length ways to ensure easy and effective integration with third parties technologies such as biometrics and ACS. This is over-and-above the already built-in systems such as advanced sensors and accurate identification systems which only allow one person in the portal per authorisation. Many areas, for example in a datacentre, have a certified fire-rated door installed and integrated with an ACS; the door can then easily be interlocked with the Circlelock Combi in just a few days – thus creating a fire-rated, high-security entrance. Dirk Groot, Product Manager, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. says: "We are proud to now be able to offer our customers a safe, yet convenient-to-install-solution for highly critical areas in their building. The small footprint and space-saving features that the Circlelock Combi offers make it a welcome addition to the high-security family."

Boon Edam Ltd Sponsor A Night to Shine - Pilgrims Hospices
Due to its success back in 2017, Pilgrims Hospices has carried on their 'A Night to Shine' 3 - 6-mile walk with Boon Edam Limited being happy sponsors for 2018. A Walk Under the Stars Pilgrims Hospices has been a chosen charity for Boon Edam Limited for many years as we continue to help raise funds for a cause that lies close to the companies hearts. The popular night-time walk helps to raise vital funds which will support local hospice care as well as bringing together multiple communities and families who have shared similar experiences with loved ones. Starting at The Julie Rose Stadium in Ashford, participants and Boon Edam employees will start a stunning lit 3 - 6 miles walk in the night-time to help remember what Pilgrims Hospices is about and why we need to come together to support this life-changing hospice. Discovering Pilgrims Hospices Pilgrims Hospices began 35 years ago with the vision of being able to supply nursing to one entire village. Now in 2018 that one vision has created over 200 Pilgrims nurses and therapists who support thousands of people facing terminal diagnosis to live will in every single moment. Speaking with Victoria on the tour of Ashford’s hospice, she highlights the importance of helping people look forward to their life whether that’s through improving their mobility or helping them achieve something for the very last time. Those who are involved within the hospice also have family support, as there is a large emphasis on making good, happy memories to look back on removing the cold and clinical stigma behind the end of life care.
