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
- 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.
