Turnstile 100 to Feature on Discovery Science Channel This Week
The accredited Discovery Science Channel will be featuring our Boon Edam Turnstile 100 model on an upcoming American episode of ‘Machines: How They Work’ later this week. The Full Height Turnstile is one of our heavy duty security access control products ideally suited for perimeter security. Discover The Show The 30 minute episode will air this week Thursday 28th April 2016 at 10pm (EDT). Each episode delves into the intricate and fascinating ways in which everyday machines work. Using exceptional photo-realistic CGI animation, the show explores the intricate components of various machines and helps the audience understand how they are manufactured and ultimately operate after installation. Security is a Hot Topic This episode is set to answer the question: How does a turnstile allow authorised people to enter, but stop intruder in their tracks? The topic is hot in the world right now, with all eyes on security and helping people feel safe in public environments. The building and assembly component of the segment was shot in North Carolina at Boon Edam’s Lillington manufacturing plant, and the turnstiles in operation are at Cree Research in Research Triangle Park (NC). The location’s primary reason for having this turnstile installed is to prevent intruders from entering their secure area. “What an honor to be selected by Discovery Channel to be featured on this program,” said Mark Borto, Boon Edam, America CEO. “For many, a turnstile is nothing special, but the way this program explains the manufacture and use of the humble turnstile demonstrates there is a lot more going on than meets the eye.” We look forward to hearing your feedback on the segment.

We are excited about working with our new trusted platform partner." Passenger Experience The Chinese aviation market is developing rapidly, with more and more people being able to travel by air both domestically and internationally. Particularly for those passengers, new to air travel, the experience at the airport is stressful due to strict deadlines, a busy and unfamiliar environment and most importantly the lack of control they experience. Self-service solutions such as self-service boarding gates and pre-screening security gates give back control to the passenger and therefore reduce stress levels. The certification of Boon Edam’s Airport Swinglane ensures these advantages become available at Chinese airports as well.

Design Meets Security: Boon Edam Launches Revolutionary Access Control Barrier Series Worldwide
Edam, The Netherlands - The business world is ever changing. With people passing through all day long, the security of sensitive areas of buildings, as well as the personal safety of the people visiting must be guaranteed. Recognising this, Boon Edam has created a brand new security product range to manage the flow of people in and around a building. But how can a secure entrance environment be achieved whilst still being inviting? The Ultimate Entry Experience The ever changing business world has seen traditional 9-5 working days being replaced with a twenty-four seven culture. With this, a new view on building security is required as it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of who is in the building, where and when. Using new technologies and premium materials, Boon Edam has developed the New Speedlane Lifeline Series. An innovative and highly customisable security barrier for access control, which launches worldwide this June. On their journey to determine the requirements for the new product range, Boon Edam studied the behaviour of pedestrian mobility and listened to architects, building managers and tenants alike. This insight opened up a whole new world of possibilities for the company to create something truly unique. “As work environments become increasingly dynamic, the need for increased security measures within buildings grows. Knowing this, we started seeing things from a new perspective to step ahead and meet changing demands.” explains Product Manager Daan van Beusekom. “As the name ‘Lifeline’ indicates, the product is alive and living. A sophisticated entry management system, we have designed the Speedlane Lifeline Series to be intuitive, interacting with all who approach it and guiding visitors through a secure gateway to their destination.” Intuitive, Interactive, Innovative Taking into consideration their findings, Boon Edam has launched the exquisitely designed, Speedlane Lifeline Series. The new product range, which includes the slimmest security barrer in the industry, consists of three models, the Slide, Swing and Open, each of which are available in a variety of options. Whether it’s for a higher security level or disabled access, numerous combinations are possible. Recognising that each installation is different, the modular systems mean the product is highly customisable. Customers can accentuate their chosen product by selecting from an array of different colour options and finishes. Whether making a statement, fitting with corporate identity colours or creating a harmonious interior design. The Speedlane Lifeline Series is available as of 9th June 2015, and can be ordered via all Boon Edam subsidiaries and distributors. Interested customers also have the opportunity of visiting Boon Edam’s showroom in Edam, The Netherlands, to see the full product range first hand. Visits can be arranged via their website.

Boon Edam Takes Revolving Doors to the Next Level
Dubai, United Arab Emirates - The Burj Khalifa broke numerous records when it opened in 2010. The tallest building in the world boasts the tallest free standing structure, the highest number of stories, highest occupied floor and the elevator with the longest travel distance. Recently it has added another record to its resume: 'At the top - Burj Khalifa Sky' is now the highest outdoor observation deck on Earth. Boon Edam has its own share in this newest record and installed the highest revolving door in the world to access to new viewing platform On Top of the World The UAE are renowned for their record breaking structures, with the Burj Khalifa a highlight on the list. Opened in 2010, it has been the tallest building in the world for the past five years and is likely to maintain this record for some time. When it opened, the highest outdoor observation deck was on the 124th floor. The new 'At the Top - Burj Khalifa Sky' is not quite literally at the top of the building, but on the 148th of 160+ floors, comes close. This new outdoor viewing platform gives visitors who don’t have a fear of heights a stunning view over the city 555m below them. Technical Feat Having installed the revolving doors on the 124th floor observation deck as well, Boon Edam were contacted again to provide the entry to the new deck. At these incredible heights, the demands placed on the entry are more extensive than in your run of the mill building. They have to be able to withstand winds of up 3000 Pascal, or an F3 class Tornado, more than 4 times as much as a normal revolving door would be able to handle. For the deck on the 124th floor, Boon Edam were the only manufacturer able to meet this challenge. With these revolving doors functioning to full satisfaction for five years already, Boon Edam were the obvious choice to provide the new door as well. Another Challenge Boon Edam installed the same specially engineered Tourniket revolving door on the 148th floor as they have done on the 124th floor. This new project however posed an additional challenge: moving all materials from the basement to the 148th floor. All materials first had to be taken up to the 111th floor in one lift, then transferred to a second lift that would take it up to the 149th floor from where everything had to be manually brought one floor down to the 148th floor where the door was to be installed.

Boon Edam Revolving Doors for Fondation Louis Vuitton!
Garges-lès-Gonesse, France - On the 27th of October the Fondation Louis Vuitton opened its doors to the public after extensive renovations that started in 2008. The Fondation Louis Vuitton aims to promote art and culture and houses a permanent collection of works of art from the personal collection of Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH. As part of the modern new building, Boon Edam installed four Tourniket revolving doors. A Unique Building The building was designed by the American-Canadian architect Frank Gehry who is known for his design for the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, Spain. Situated in the Jardin d'Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne in Paris, France, this 48m high glass building is shaped like a sail boat with sails inflated by the wind. The complicated design consists of 3,584 tailor made glass panels with a total surface of 13,500 m2 and a door overhang of more than 20 m. A Sustainable Building The project's focus on sustainability made it the perfect pilot project for a new sustainability certificate for cultural buildings, developed by HQE®. The High Quality Environmental Standard (HQE) is the French standard for green building, based on international principles for sustainable development. The installation of revolving doors is one of the many examples in which sustainable design and development were incorporated in this building. The four Tourniket revolving doors were supplied by Boon Edam and are all identical. Two were placed at the North side of the building and two on the South entrance.

Boon Edam Wins Order for First Self-Boarding Lanes in China
Beijing, China - Royal Boon Edam today announces that they have won the order for the installation of their Airport Swinglane self-boarding security lane at Xiamen International Airport in China. This project is the first self-boarding project in China which is not installed as part of a pilot programme. Xiamen Airport is one of the busiest airports in China with nearly 20 million passengers in 2013. As important provincial and regional air hub, the airport is serving the coastal city of Xiamen and surrounding cities of Fujian Province, it also has direct routes to Malaysia, Korea, Japan and many other countries in Asia. Additionally there is one route to Europe: to Amsterdam. Like many airports in China, Xiamen is one of the front runners in the implementation of self-service in the airport terminal. A Dutch Connection The link with Amsterdam proved advantageous to Boon Edam. The company is headquartered in the Netherlands and the Dutch Consul General supported Boon Edam's bid. Boon Edam and representatives of Xiamen Airport first met during the China Airport Check-in Summit in Shanghai. After close consideration of all competitors, the airport ultimately decided to award the order to Boon Edam. Their design of the Airport Swinglane self-service boarding gate with an efficient add-on was more suitable for Chinese market. The Airport Swinglane was installed at Xiamen Airport at the end of 2014.
