GERMANY’S “THE CUBE” EMBRACES SUSTAINABILITY WITH BOON EDAM REVOLVING DOORS

GERMANY’S “THE CUBE” EMBRACES SUSTAINABILITY WITH BOON EDAM REVOLVING DOORS | #TpromoCom #Security #DoorHardware #AccessControl | Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced that The Cube, a smart commercial building in downtown Berlin, Germany, has installed four Crystal TQ all-glass revolving doors at various entrances around the facility to save on energy consumption and blend in with the glass facade (LRG Marketing). https://bit.ly/3dT4ZPQ

The brainchild of 3XN Architects, The Cube is an architectural masterpiece and iconic landmark that showcases the most cutting-edge, smart technologies and embraces design and sustainability.

A Commercial Office “Work of Art”

Built on both sides of Berlin Central Station in the emerging urban district of the Europacity, The Cube was the vision of architects and designers at 3XN with the goal of creating a commercial building that could make a statement in an innovative and show-stopping way. The cubic office building has an all-glass, mirrored facade, with multiple bends in the glass to create facets. The facility is 10-stories high and houses various tenants, offering features such as a ground-level food market and office lobby, underground parking, indoor gardens, a rooftop terrace, and optional conference areas. The floor-to-ceiling windows throughout provide abundant natural light and ventilation.

In an interview with ArchDaily.com, Torben Østergaard, a 3XN partner in charge of the project, said, "When we began the design process, our ambition was to create a building that would contribute to the animation of the square. We wanted to engage pedestrians passing by while providing top-notch office spaces. We also wanted this project to offer new value to the Berlin skyline while exploring new ways for buildings to interact with their surroundings. Given the location conditions, we proposed a sculpted design approach that would reflect the site's scale and honor its character as an important public space."

Upgraded Revolving Door Entrances to Support Sustainability

Boon Edam was commissioned to install four Crystal TQ manual revolving doors to further complement the energy-conscious philosophy of The Cube. Revolving doors operate under the principle of “always open, yet always closed,” maintaining a constant seal between the exterior environment and interior building lobby. The Crystal TQ manual revolving door is constructed from virtually all glass with only the most minimal stainless-steel components to support the glass drum and door wings. For decades, it has been one of the first choices for both contemporary statement buildings and historical buildings alike. The door is available in 3- or 4-wing configurations and is easy for the public to push through. Go to: security entrances and architectural revolving doors.

Boon Edam’s New Mapping Tool Enables Long-Term Entrance Planning


Boon Edam’s New Mapping Tool Enables Long-Term Entrance Planning | #TpromoCom #AccessControl #DoorHardware #Security | BoonSelect is a decision tool that breaks down the complex and important decisions around securing facilities from intrusion at the entry. https://bit.ly/3qpDEKb

Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced a new solution mapping tool, BoonSelect, that breaks down the complex entry selection process and helps decision makers choose the right entrance solutions for their unique goals. BoonSelect features seven factors to consider prior to making an entrance decision. Boon Edam entry experts are trained on the right questions to ask as they walk a decision maker through each of the factors – all with the goal of helping their clients make the most well-rounded entrance choice.

Determining the Right Security Entrances for the Right Places

Being responsible for making the decision to implement new security turnstiles or revolving doors at a facility can be a challenge. Security and Facility Managers are responsible for the safety and security of all who enter a campus or facility via its entrances. And each entrance location has a different set of users, traffic levels, security requirements, environmental requirements, etc. BoonSelect formalizes the selection process, providing clarity, peace of mind and confidence in an investment that can last ten or more years.

 Seven Entrance Decision Factors

BoonSelect outlines seven decision factors to be considered prior to an entrance implementation strategy:
1. Throughput – Types of users and number of users, especially at peak traffic periods?
2. Security – Tailgating deterrence, detection or prevention? Remote locking?
3. Safety – Local codes and fire or evacuation strategies?
4. Aesthetics – Entrances blend in or stand out?
5. Technology – Integration capabilities with new or future technologies?
6. Comfort – Ease of use? Energy efficiency?
7. Service – Planned preventative maintenance and user training?
“BoonSelect is an efficient driver for starting productive conversations that our customers appreciate,” said JC Powell, Vice President of Sales at Boon Edam Inc. “A client will often ask for an entrance solution that does not meet the overall security goals or traffic requirements of their facility. BoonSelect helps all the stakeholders explore what they don’t know and think about their overall risk posture, and eventually come to the best entrance decision for their unique facility or campus.”

Lillington, North Carolina, June 9, 2021 – Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced they will be displaying contactless security doors and turnstiles, including a new optical turnstile, the Speedlane Compact, in booth #8037 at the ISC West exhibition in Las Vegas on July 19-21. ISC West is the largest security event in North America, bringing together thousands of security and safety professionals for networking, education and discovery of new technology. All of Boon Edam’s security entrances will be paired with the latest in access control and biometric technologies to demonstrate a seamless solution for attendees. They are also the official turnstile sponsor of the show.

Prioritizing Exhibitor and Attendee Safety

The ISC West exhibition will be the first national, in-person event since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Boon Edam is in open communication with ISC West on their plans to prioritize the safety and security of both exhibition staff and event attendees. All Boon Edam booth staff will be wearing masks and adhering to social distancing requirements as mandated by the event.

 â€œBoon Edam is ready to safely resume physical security conversations at ISC West this year,” said Valerie Currin, CEO and Managing Director of Boon Edam Inc. “Our customers are requiring hands-free entry solutions that mitigate tailgating and piggybacking. Our ISC West booth this year will showcase exactly what our customers have been asking for in this new security landscape.”

 Integrated Technologies for a Touchless Entry Experience

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a requirement for contactless, hands-free entry into all facilities and campuses. Security professionals are challenged to provide these touchless entrances without compromising physical security. Boon Edam will be featuring all its touchless security entrances that enable security professionals to deter, detect and prevent unauthorized entry at their facilities. Each entrance product will be fully integrated with third-party touchless access control technologies that are available on the market today.

The following solutions will be on display in Boon Edam’s booth:

NEW Speedlane Compact Optical Turnstile: This new turnstile solution was created out of a market need for a premium quality, swinging barrier turnstile with a small footprint – making it ideal for building retrofits. The Speedlane Compact maintains the same level of tailgating deterrence and detection of its larger turnstile counterparts while offering easy installation and integration with access technologies. The Compact will include an HID card reader installed inside the cabinet.

Lifeline Speedlane Swing Optical Turnstile with Lifeline Boost Access Control Pedestal: This slim, swinging optical turnstile will feature a unique, white powder coated finish and mid-height glass barriers for tailgating detection. The turnstile will be integrated with Boon Edam’s Boost pedestal, which is specially designed to complement the aesthetics of the Lifeline optical turnstile series and house virtually any access technology inside. The Boost will include the latest version of Essex’s credential card reader, the iRox-T, which now features Bluetooth and OSDP capabilities that expand HID Global’s Mobile Access solutions. 

Tourlock 180 Security Revolving Door: The unmanned security entrance of choice for the Fortune 500, the Tourlock provides the highest level of bidirectional traffic throughput while preventing unauthorized entry. The Tourlock in Boon Edam’s booth will include StereoVision® piggybacking detection technology and an AMAG Symmetry card reader to demonstrate the combination of fast throughput with high security.

Circlelock Solo Security Mantrap Portal: Offering the highest level of security available in an entrance, the Circlelock security portal uses StereoVision® technology to prevent intrusion into the most sensitive locations, such as data centers and executive suites. The portal will be configured to demonstrate two-factor authentication: an AMAG Symmetry card reader on the outside of the portal conducts the initial authorization, while facial recognition technology provides instant authentication inside the portal: the secure, edge-based facial authentication access control device by Alcatraz AI, called the Rock, ensures only the right person can enter.
