Boon Edam Launches Sleek Access Control Pedestal Mount

Edam, The Netherlands – Today, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. announced the launch of the Lifeline Boost access control pedestal mount, an attractive and welcoming addition to the Speedlane Lifeline series of speed gates. Sophisticated and Secure The Lifeline Boost comes in response to the many requests received for a well-designed, innovative, and unobtrusive pedestal to accommodate a long list of authorisation technologies and complement the existing Lifeline Speedlane series. The Lifeline Boost has been engineered with the comfort of the end-user in mind; it is ergonomic, at a comfortable height and features the classic tapered V-shape synonymous with the Lifeline Speedlane series and of course, offers the same outstanding energy savings features our customers have come to expect from Boon Edam. Using modern and intuitive technology, the Lifeline Boost pedestal mount guides each visitor through to their destination without delay or inconvenience. As with the Lifeline Speedlane series, a selection of proven and intuitive light symbols indicate what the visitor needs to do next, from their initial approach, through the authorisation steps and their exit into the secured side. Flexible Combinations with ‘Plug ‘n Play’ Convenience The latest Lifeline Boost access control pedestal is available in two models: Standard Premium        : Suitable for the integration of a card reader, barcode reader or biometric devices. Card Collector              : Suitable to integrate a third-party card collector device. In addition to accommodating a wide variety of authorisation technologies, the Boost pedestal is easy and fast to install due to its unobtrusive, enclosed raceway that can house electrical and ACS conduit along the surface of any finished floor. Its small footprint and sleek design complement the clean lines of the Lifeline Speedlane speed gate with minimal visual impact. Premium User Experience Users will find the Boost uncomplicated and intuitive to operate as they provide their credentials and then pass through the speed gate. Intuitive LED lights detect the visitor approaching and guide them through clearly and easily – without any compromise to the journey flow. The directional indicator symbols stand out beautifully against the premium dark, tempered glass and installation do not require any cables to go through the floor. Daan van Beusekom, Product Manager, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. says: "We believe in creating welcome and secure security access solutions and saw there was a need to develop a pedestal to enable more integration possibilities for the Lifeline Speedlane series. The new Lifeline Boost fulfils this mission - it is streamlined and compact – with the same ergonomic and sleek features of the Lifeline Speedlane series – and can accommodate almost any authorisation technology available. We’re proud to launch this clever and compact addition to the family."

The National Space Centre with Boon Edam Limited

Boon Edam Limited Send a Teddy into Space

Hosted by Woodhead Group at the National Space Centre located in Leicester, we became part of the Sent into Space event through sponsoring an object to be sent into space!  On the 14th of June 2018, two of our Area Sales Managers watched as a teddy was sent to the edge of space.  So how did it go? The natural latex weather balloon is filled with helium with the payload (in the case a teddy and nut & bolt set) with multiple GPS sensors. The weather balloon will travel to ‘near space’ which is 65,00 feet above the earth at which point the helium will increase to the size of 2 double-decker buses and then this will bust. The payload has a parachute which allows it the float to earth and then Sent into Space can collect this. After over 350 launches they have not lost a single balloon! Using weather reports they can predict the return position within 1-2 miles, local school pupils have run a competition to predict the exact location and the winner will keep the teddy. The Nut and Bolt will form part of the building fabric. Watch the journey
