Security Essen 2018 Roundup

Edam, the Netherlands, October 2018 – Boon Edam made some real waves at this year’s Security Essen. Our ‘Art of Scalable Security’ themed stand made a real statement in terms of bringing our customers an authentic welcome and secure customer experience. We were recently in Essen, Germany between the 25th – 28th September 2018, where we showcased many new products, product updates, an exciting colour range and premiered our brand new modular approach to buying security access solutions. This year was a feast for the eyes and the mind. Our stand was easy to navigate and housed all the information our customer would need to make the right security entry decision – not to forget the resident caricaturist and daily happy hour. High Security Showing Off - The Circlelock Combi There was a lot of attention around this new half-portal. The show model was especially built using a warm-toned gold frame and tinted curved glass panels. This was done to illustrate the possibilities available to fine-tune our standard premium products to best suit your individual project requirements. Security does not need to be cold and boring and this was clearly demonstrated in all the access solution on the stand. The Cirlelock Combi was show fitted with the most up-to-date interior biometrics from TBS and operated by the BoonTouch. Medium Security Speed Gates with all the Extras Our medium security area was buzzing with the Lifeline Speedlane Swing security gates. These gates were on show in one of the new Mineral Heritage Collection colour-ways – Rijks Grey, and featured all the bells and whistles including the brand new Lifeline Boost Access Control Pedestal (with card collector), the Schindler PORT4mini elevator destination control software as well as the soon-to-be-released updates to the existing popular range of speed gates. Low Security Monitored Access Concept We believe that monitored access is the future for this level of security and were at Essen with our concept turnstile (the PivotPoint) powered by the cloud software (BoonSensus). Beautifully branded with a strong message about investing in more than a secured entrance – but looking at building your brand and business by big data. This product will be launched in the coming months, and based on the excitement at the show… it will be received very well in the market. A Modular Approach to Security Access Solutions The central section of our stand was an imposing tower with information on how using the Boon Edam’s unique modular approach can guide our customers easily to the correct choice in security entrance product. Working together with our entry experts, via the BoonSelect solution mapping tool a customer can easily and confidently make the right choice. Thereafter we have cleverly designed a way to ‘Level Up’ and fine-tune that premium standard product to suit your specific project. Easy and effective – this is the only way to ensure the perfect secured entrance every time. For more information on this, please contact us. We experienced the most successful Security Essen to date, met up with old and new customers and are so glad that you stopped by. If you were not able to make it this year, please let us know and we will be sure to send you any information you may have missed out on. All the information is available in both English and German.

Boon Edam Launches High Security Connection Portal

Edam, The Netherlands – Today, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. announced the launch of the Circlelock Combi, a half portal which attaches to an existing door – therefore transforming the entrance into a high security entrance capable of protecting against both unauthorised entry and piggybacking.   The Smart Choice in Ultimate Security Entrances Renovation and construction costs can escalate quickly when locking down a highly sensitive area. Now you can attach the Circlelock Combi easily and quickly to either the secure or non-secure side of an existing swing door. The working principal is as follows: On authorisation, the portal’s interlocking door slides open allowing a user to enter the portal. An integrated security system confirms whether the user is alone and if so, the swinging door is unlocked, enabling passage into the secure area. A secondary biometric system such as facial recognition (by others) can be used to confirm identity inside the portal. Highest Protection The product’s developers and R&D department have answered the need for the highest level of unauthorised entry prevention at an unmanned area with this interlocking security portal. Using the most innovative and up-to-date technologies on the market, including the StereoVision  piggybacking detection system, this security access solution offers complete peace-of-mind when it comes to keeping people and valuables safe and secure. Integration Opportunities As part of the development of the Circlelock Combi, our team have researched at length ways to ensure easy and effective integration with third parties technologies such as biometrics and ACS. This is over-and-above the already built-in systems such as advanced sensors and accurate identification systems which only allow one person in the portal per authorisation. Many areas, for example in a datacentre, have a certified fire-rated door installed and integrated with an ACS; the door can then easily be interlocked with the Circlelock Combi in just a few days – thus creating a fire-rated, high security entrance. Dirk Groot, Product Manager, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. says: "We are proud to now be able to offer our customers a safe, yet convenient-to-install-solution for highly critical areas in their building. The small footprint and space-saving features that the Circlelock Combi offers make it a welcome addition to the high security family."

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 2 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 does 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."
