Latest Global Installations

Edam, the Netherlands, June 2018 - Boon Edam has been busy over the past few months with some inspiring installations around the world. We are thrilled to be able to share a few of them with you here. Queen Elizabeth Floating Hotel – Dubai Latest Global Installations.JPG Frequently referred to as simply the QE2, this retired ocean liner which was built in Clydebank, Scotland for the Cunard Line was once one of the world’s most prestigious and renowned cruise ships. Between 1969 and 2008, she did more than 800 transatlantic crossing, steamed six million miles, carried 2.5 million passengers and was even sent to war. After 39 great years, she is now retired in Dubai. After 10 years in this metropolis, the ship has finally opened its doors as a 13 deck hotel situated at Port Rashid. Boon Edam Middle East installed an impressive 4-wing revolving door at the entrance to the lobby. The entrance is perfectly aligned with the ships brand in that it is streamlined, premium and a real statement to all those who enter into the world of luxury. Nordea Domicil Ørestaden - Denmark Latest Global Installations-2.JPG Situated next to the DR City, Nordea's office in Ørestaden is a shining example of beautiful and well-thought-out construction. Right in the early stages of the design phase, Boon Edam Denmark was invited to advise on the entrances to this impressive site. We won the contract to install not only three 4-wing Tourniket revolving doors at the entrance to the reception area, but also a bank of speed gates, strategically positioned in the building to prevent unauthorised entrance to sensitive areas within. The end result speaks for itself and all parties are very pleased. The revolving doors are spinning happily and the many Speedlane Lifelines are already playing an important role in providing employees a safe and secure working day. 3 x Crafthouse Restaurants – USA, Northern Virginia Latest Global Installations-3.JPG Boon Edam Inc. collaborated closely with the upscale Crafthouse chain of restaurants to combat the issue of keeping the cold and unwelcoming air outside the chain of cosy eateries in chilly North Virginia. The existing swinging doors were replaced with BoonAssist Tourniket manual revolving doors which provide the perfect solution to the issue at hand, as well as help to enhance the upmarket vibe of the brand. “Snow and cold air could blow in and disturb the customers,” said CEO and founder Evan Matz. “The revolving door not only blocks out the elements but creates a smooth entrance for customers as opposed to swing doors that can jam. I can also fit more tables with the space savings and that brings in a tangible ROI.”  A Strong Collaboration Projects like these involve many collaborators, and we are happy to say that our role in projects like those above is so rewarding when we finish with happy customers and see the end-users enjoying the experience of entering through our products in a welcome and secure way.   For further information, please contact: Michelle WortelGroup Marketing ManagerE

Boon Edam Vlog #3

Trend Report #3: Prevent Gaps in Security Protocols with Flawless Identification Integration

UL/CSA Certifications Obtained for Speedlane Lifeline Speed Gates

Edam, the Netherlands, May 2018 – We are proud to announce that as part of a continuous policy to certify products to North American standards, the Speedlane Swing and Open security speed gates have now been tested and certified to conform with UL standards 325 and 2593, and CSA 22.2 for Canada. Investing in European and Americas Safety Compliance UL Standards 325 and 2593, as well as CSA C22.2 (the harmonised standard in Canada) are the prevalent industry standards for ensuring the safe operation of doors, turnstiles, gates and access control equipment in the United States and Canada. While all of Boon Edam’s products currently conform to CE (the European Union standard of safety and operation), the company continues to invest in UL certification for all door and turnstile products sold in the Americas to align with North American standards and ultimately streamline installation for its customers. By Popular Demand The Lifeline Swing and Open were launched initially in Europe in January 2015 and, after their launch in the Americas in March of the same year, quickly became a top seller due to their modern design, intuitive functionality and energy-saving operation. The Speedlane Swing in particular is currently very popular because it features the slimmest cabinets in the industry (only four inches wide) for a sleek look in downtown lobbies where space is at a premium.“Today’s business climate places a premium on risk mitigation and Boon Edam has always emphasized safety around the globe,” says Mark Borto, CEO of Boon Edam Inc. “We know field testing for UL is not always practical for our clients, so we continue to invest in UL certifications as new products are launched, which is a lengthy and expensive process. By getting our products certified, we can assure our North American customers that a 3rd-party has rigorously tested our products and confirmed that they operate in a safe and predictable manner at any location.” Fulfilling all the Criteria The Lifeline speed gates were tested by UL (United Laboratories), which was founded in 1894 and today helps companies demonstrate safety and confirm compliance. Some of the services offered by UL include: inspection, advisory services, education and training, testing, auditing and analytics, certification software solutions, and marketing claim verification.   For further information, please contact: Michelle WortelGroup Marketing ManagerE
