Showcasing Security Entrance Integration at ISC West 2018

Las Vegas, April 2018 – Our American colleagues will, this week, be exhibiting at ISC West in Las Vegas from April 11 – 13 2018. If you are in the area, make sure you visit and learn more about our integrated access control solutions. Find them at booth #8037 at the Sands Expo Centre. Helping Security Professionals Manage Risk and Liability Security entrances with both integrated access and anti-tailgating technologies are helping security professionals manage risk and liability by preventing infiltration into their buildings. The following solutions will be on display in our booth: Lifeline Speedlane Swing: The industry’s slimmest speed gate will feature a custom, integrated pedestal that incorporates the MorphoWave™ touchless fingerprint technology from IDEMIA. This solution enables high throughput with the enhanced security of rapid biometric identification, all in a stylish, cohesive design.  Circlelock: Offering the highest level of security available in an entrance, the Circlelock security portal prevents intrusion into the most sensitive areas such as data centers. The portal will be configured to demonstrate two-factor authentication: an AMAG Symmetry card reader on the outside of the portal conducts the initial authorisation, followed by an iris scanning technology inside the portal from Iris ID called the iCAM7S Series reader, to confirm identity.  Circlelock Combi*: The Circlelock Combi half portal is the newest entry solution by Boon Edam. This clever solution transforms an existing swinging door into a high security entrance that prevents piggybacking. It also enables organisations to save on both space and renovation costs. In the booth, the half portal will demonstrate a two-factor authentication scenario: initial authentication using an AMAG Symmetry card reader to enter the portal, followed by facial scanning technology from StoneLock Pro® to open the second door.  Tourlock 180: The industry’s best-selling security revolving door will feature an AMAG Symmetry card reader to demonstrate access control integration paired with the door’s uniquely high, bi-directional throughput and its ability to prevent tailgating and piggybacking without manned supervision.  StereoVision: A proprietary technology in Boon Edam’s Circlelock and Tourlock, StereoVision prevents piggybacking by using a combination of near infrared and optical sensors to determine if someone is entering the door alone. Visitors to the booth will be able to see how they can calibrate the technology to obtain the mathematical probability of successful piggybacking prevention, thereby justifying their investment in high security doors and portals.  All Entrances to the Exhibit Hall to Feature New Speed Gates For the 11th year in a row, Boon Edam has been named the official speed gate sponsor of ISC West. For the first time, we are excited to have installed 34 lanes at all the entrances to the show. The model is our Speedlane Open. These speed gates feature a barrier-free design, ideal for deterring casual tailgating attempts. The Open turnstile is part of the sleek and modern Lifeline Series launched in 2015, which has helped propel Boon Edam to the market leading position for security entrances, according to “Pedestrian Entrance Control Equipment” by IHS Markit® for the 2014-2016 period.   *The Circlelock Combi is currently only available in the USA.   For further information, please contact: Michelle Wortel Group Marketing Manager T: +31 (0)299 38 08 00 E :michelle.wortel@boonedam.com

Safety First in The Evolution Tower

Moscow, Russia, March 2018 – We are proud to announce that our Russian subsidiary has been awarded the contract to secure the entrances to the prestigious Evolution Tower. A Secure Architectural City Landmark The building, also known as City Palace Tower or Wedding Palace, had undeniably become a new city landmark and we are honoured to be selected in the project. Boon Edam Russia will be supplying 42 Lifeline Speedlane Swing speed gates and 13 Winglock 900 access gates within the building. In a world now dominated by skyscraper cityscapes, the importance of a safe, yet still welcoming entrance solutions is paramount. The Evolution Tower’s 80,000 m2 office space and 36,000 m2 shopping and entertainment facilities, meant that high throughput with good security was a balance which needed to be met. Multifunctional Centre for Everyone Located on the Presnenskaya Embankment of the Moskva River, the twisting building began construction in 2011 and is the brainchild of British architect Tony Kettle for Kettle Collective and Scottish artist, Prof. Karen Forbes from the University of Edinburgh. The building is a true masterpiece of well-thought out spaces including 2 hectares of a landscaped public square, a 10 metre high ceremonial staircase, water features, offices and two stories of prime retail space, all connected to a metro station and bridge over the river. The concept inspiration comes from many places including the Rodin sculpture, ‘The Kiss’ and resembles two ribbons wrapping around one another, and as a nice finishing touch, has a ballroom on the top floor. The innovative design celebrates speed, energy and the modern urban Russian city life. It is a fantastic architectural and engineering statement. A Strong Collaboration Projects like these involve many collaborators, and for this one we are working with the below in our quest to secure the space: The Interior Designer: ElformaThe System Integrator: KomisThe Client: ZAO IntegratorBoon Edam Project leader: Sergey Loskutov Coming Soon Work has already begun on the project and we estimate completion in the Summer of 2018.

Boon Edam Tourniket architectural entrances are used in projects such as the Titanic building in Belfast

Architectural and security entrance leader Boon Edam introduces unique leasing plans that can pay for themselves

One of the world’s leading suppliers of architectural revolving doors and security entrances, Boom Edam, is introducing to Australasia new leasing plans for its globally respected ranges. Unique Leasing Plans The plans – typically extending over 3-5 years – apply to both revolving doors and security entrances used in 27 countries by major corporate, computer, data centre, facility management, hospitality, industrial and scientific research, tourism, retail, transport terminals, health care and government clients. Boom Edam Australia – the local subsidiary of Royal Boom Edam – says the new entrance leasing plans for Australia and New Zealand are the first of their type here and reflect the ongoing success and innovation the company has enjoyed since establishing a full local branch Down Under. Good Return On Investment Boon Edam Australia Managing Director Michael Fisher says the unique leasing innovation will assist clients by turning capital expenditure (CAPEX) into operating expenditure (OPEX), leaving capital finances free to invest in further worthwhile initiatives such as sustainability. The leasing arrangements can provide a total return on investment (ROI) for security products where they replace manned security installations. They will also help CFOs and public and private facility managers to improve cash flow while reducing expenses. “In security situations, where our security products replace costly manpower, they could pay for themselves inside the lease period and the client would retain the product at the end of the lease period. So the ROI in these cases would be total and the benefits ongoing,” said Mr Fisher. Applicable to all entrance security ranges The leases will apply to the architecturally harmonious Tourlock, Circlelock and Lifeline security ranges, which are among Boon Edam technology deployed by some of the world’s biggest companies, including household names in data management and web services, as well as dozens of Fortune 500 companies and major financial and corporate facilities in Australia and New Zealand. Boon Edam’s architectural revolving doors, to which the leasing plans also apply, include the Tournex, Duotour, Twintour and Tourniket ranges used, for example, in the revitalisation of Melbourne’s Rialto Centre and in the world’s tallest building, the 828m Burj Khalifa in Dubai. They are also used in prestige facilities including Australian corporate HQs, banks, legislative facilities, clubs and private and State facilities. Boon Edam Tourniket architectural entrances are used in projects such as the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest revolving doors in the Rialto revitalisation in Melbourne “Besides the financial benefits of the new leasing plans, they also provide a response to the need for increased security in public and private facilities and protection of people and property. They apply, for example, to our suite of data centre access security products being introduced to Australasia in response to threats to private, public and corporate information.” In response to the need to provide high security even at times when security staff are scarce, Boon Edam Australia’s latest Tourlock, Circlelock and Lifeline ranges of access security product families provide security for not only the entrances to data centres, but also can be used for company perimeters, corporate HQ entrances and designated building facility entrances, as well as other sensitive interior areas. Boon Edam entrance security technologies Boon Edam’s latest products – which have evolved from market leading families of product proven in thousands of applications – are backed in the field throughout Australasia by dedicated service and security teams assembled here by Boon Edam Australia. Examples of Boon Edam technologies (such as Tourlock, Circlelock and Lifeline) include entries featuring high-security simultaneous bi-directional revolving doors with stereoscopic camera vision to identify and exclude threats.   Boon Edam’s sleek and elegant Speedlane Lifeline series blends form with function to smoothly guide and manage people flow through to secured areas of buildings “The Lifeline Series is one of Boon Edam’s most versatile and useful ranges for entrance security, because it can be used in so many different scenarios, from allowing smooth and guided disability access through to multi-tiered security buildings, where high volumes of people need to be guided simultaneously to different areas,” said Mr Fisher. Boon Edam’s Australian office is serving the growing security needs – including OEM equipment service – of facility managers, security officers and consultants, architects, specifiers and property owners here.

Boon Edam Circlelock doors are proven globally in security applications

World entrance security leader Boon Edam focuses on growing data centre risks

A suite of data centre access security products is being introduced to Australasia by global entry solutions leader Royal Boon Edam in response to threats to private, public and corporate information. The architecturally harmonious Tourlock, Circlelock and Lifeline ranges are among Boon Edam technology deployed by some of the world’s biggest companies, including household names in data management and web service providers as well as other Fortune 500 companies. Growing security needs "Leaks of public and private data can occur not only because of external hacking, but also because of unauthorized entry into sensitive facilities such as data centres,” said Boon Edam Australia Managing Director Mr Mike Fisher. “Our experience across top corporate, public and government facilities in 27 countries – including Fortune 500 HQs and diplomatic and legislative houses – tells us data centre access security is a now a 24/7 issue that is often beyond the scope of expensive multiple manned security points. “Data Centres have to deal with a constant threat of data theft that can and does cause highly public corporate humiliation and loss of trust, which is very hard to regain once it is damaged. Additionally, loss of data due to damage from activists, thieves or other threats, can end up costing in the millions of dollars. “Insurance companies are now asking for strong physical access security to be in place as an integral part of the more stringent risk management measures required to combat these threats.” In response to the need to provide high security even at times when security staff are scarce, Boon Edam Australia’s latest Tourlock, Circlelock and Lifeline ranges of access security product families provide security for not only the entrances to data centres, but also can be used for company perimeters, corporate HQ entrances and designated building facility entrances, as well as other sensitive interior areas. Rialto refurbishment Boon Edam’s latest products – which have evolved from market leading families of product proven in thousands of applications -  are backed in the field throughout Australasia by dedicated service and security teams assembled here by Boon Edam Australia. They incorporate the same level of quality and architecturally harmonious style as the giant, 5m high, Boon Edam revolving doors that are the centrepiece of the public entrance to the Rialto refurbishment in Melbourne. Boon Edam high security technologies Examples of Boon Edam technologies (such as Tourlock, Circlelock, and Lifeline) include entries featuring high-security simultaneous bi-directional revolving doors with stereoscopic camera vision to identify and exclude threats. Tourlock The level of security offered by the Tourlock 180+90, for example, can be adapted to individual requirements, using the latest advanced StereoVision 2 technology, which merges two types of sensing technologies, optical and near-infrared light, to monitor the compartment of a security revolving door or portal. The two technologies work together to determine displacement and distance by measuring the time it takes light to travel from the instrumentation to an object and back. This new and highly advanced system can accurately tell the difference between two people and one person holding a box or luggage to minimise false rejections. Circlelock The softly arched Boon Edam Circlelock series of security entrances, meanwhile, incorporates two bullet resistant curved glass sliding doors governing access to and egress from a glass portal that offers a spacious and comfortable entrance for the user, while the integrated security systems operating within it ensures only authorised people can pass through to the building or facility being protected. “Circlelock is used where it is imperative that only the right person enters an area of your building,” says Mr Fisher. “The design blends beautifully with the décor of modern and classic buildings around the world, proving that beautiful form can be combined with efficient function. Because of its good looks and high security combination, it is now proven in use globally in applications such as government and diplomatic buildings, banks, airports, prestige jewelry, as below, and high value retail outlets, computer and data server rooms and corporate offices and headquarters. Lifeline Boon Edam’s latest Speedlane Lifeline Series of entrance security gates was introduced to Australasia at the Security Expo 2017. It is incorporated into major public and private security applications in Australia and worldwide, including in legislatures, treasuries, diplomatic posts and mobility hotspots such as entrances to high rise HQs. “Designed to the highest standards of quality, aesthetics and ergonomics, the Lifeline Series is an intuitive, refined and secure entry management system for guiding and managing people flow through to secured areas of buildings,” says Mr Fisher. The Lifeline Series interacts with those who approach it, guiding the flow of high visitor levels and acting as a boundary between public and private worlds. Boon Edam Australia National Sales Manager, Mr Alastair Russell - who has over 30 years’ experience in entrance security and its associated technologies – says Lifeline is unique to the industry in that it has approach sensors, which allow the unit to sleep until someone comes within range of the sensor. “For buildings with sustainability objectives, or those who are interested in saving power, this adds a huge advantage,” he says. “The Lifeline Series is one of Boon Edam’s most versatile and useful ranges for entrance security, because it can be used in so many different scenarios, from allowing smooth and guided disability access through to multi-tiered security buildings, where high volumes of people need to be guided simultaneously to different areas,” said Mr Russell. Other major advantages of the Lifeline Series include its intuitive symbols, ergonomic design, premium quality materials and customisation to fit a diversity of interior designs.

Boon Edam Australia’s Circlelock range blends harmoniously into areas ranging from corporate to diplomatic; from banks to high-end retail

Circlelock architectural revolving doors from Boon Edam show how high security entrances can be harmoniously elegant

An architectural revolving door that harmoniously combines elegant good looks with the highest-level security features available from global entrance specialist Royal Boon Edam is being introduced to Australia and New Zealand.  The softly arched Boon Edam Circlelock series incorporates two bullet resistant curved glass sliding doors governing access to and egress from a glass portal that offers a spacious and comfortable entrance for the user, while the integrated security systems operating within it ensure only authorised people can pass through to the building or facility being protected. “Circlelock is used where it is imperative that only the right person enters an area of your building,” says Boon Edam Australia Managing Director Mr Michael Fisher. “The design blends beautifully with the décor of modern and classic buildings around the world, proving that beautiful form can be combined with efficient function. Because of its good looks and high security combination, it is now proven in use globally in applications such as government and diplomatic buildings, banks, airports, prestige jewellery, as below, and high value retail outlets, computer and data server rooms and corporate offices and headquarters. Boon Edam Australia's Circlelock is ideally suited to high-end stores Access control Comprising a circular portal with two curved sliding doors, Circlelock opens the outside door upon authorisation of an access control system. Once the user has entered the portal, a weight system or StereoVision system integrated into the door determines whether the user is alone in the door, providing an efficient anti-piggybanking system. After sensing the presence of the person in the Circlelock and if there is no alarm situation, the first door will close and lock after which the second door will automatically open. When the person has left the Circlelock, the second door will close and lock again. The Circlelock is now in rest position and ready (stand by) to start a new cycle. A red/green LED indication on the end stiles shows the status of each door wing at each side of the Circlelock. An additional biometrics identification system can match the biometric data of the user to a database to ensure the right person is entering the area.  Only when both security systems give a clear signal, will the second door open and can the secured area be entered. Circlelock can optionally incorporate StereoVision time of flight* camera systems to create extremely accurate 3D images of the person in the door to determine whether they are alone. StereoVision is even capable of discerning between a person and a briefcase or bag *Such systems generate three dimensional images of environments by shining lasers on objects within an environment and analyzing the reflected light. The name "time of flight" is used because the camera measures the difference between the time that individual particles are reflected to the camera and use this data to construct a full 3D picture of an object using computer software. Because TOF cameras can generate up to 100 images each second, they are also able to track the movement of three dimensional objects through space with extreme accuracy.     Circlelock is part of Boon Edam’s architecturally harmonious ranges of revolving doors, security doors & portals, speed gates (pictured), tripod turnstiles, access gates and full height turnstiles to ensure the security of area entry and perimeters. The Circlelock system – available in stock internal diameters from 1000-15000mm and height under canopy of 2200mm – is one of the comprehensive product groups of the global Boon Edam group, which operates in 27 countries. Circlelock is also one of a suite of security entrance and revolving doors systems already in service in Australasia. For security reasons, these companies cannot be named, but Boon Edam can arrange a private visit to demonstrate its security entrance technologies in operation locally. Other Boom Edam systems in service here span office buildings, airports, healthcare facilities and hotels as well as the giant 5-metre high revolving doors on the new Rialto revitalisation project in Melbourne. Boom Edam has established door service networks throughout Australia and New Zealand to optimise reliability and efficiency of revolving door and security entrance systems.    Inquiries please to:  Michael Fisher Managing DirectorBoon Edam Australia Pty LimitedLevel 11, 1 Margaret Street, Sydney, New South Wales 2000E: michael.fisher@boonedam.comT: +61 1300 689 905M: +61 (0)415 671 884 Media release inquiries to: whyte@bigpond.com
