A Variety of Levels to Securing an Entrance

ISC West 2018 Boon Edam United States

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

Hotel Lutetia and installed revolving door

Hotel Lutetia – History Repeating Itself

Paris, France, April 2018 – We are proud to announce that Boon Edam France has been hard at work installing a bespoke wooden revolving door into the 4-star boutique Hotel Lutetia – which is on the verge of being reopened this spring. Walking into a Rediscovered History The Hotel Lutetia has a story which is quite unusual. Since its first opening in 1910 many flagship events have taken place. Beginning with the board of the famous Parisian store 'Le Bon Marché' making a decision to open a modern, palace-inspired, luxury hotel in Paris, directly across from their famous store in the Left Bank. When it came to the naming of this second Left Bank landmark, the board reached back to the origins of Paris itself, and took the city's Roman name: Lutetia. The Hotel is an iconic landmark and is situated in the vibrant Saint-Germain-des-Prés area of Paris. It is the only grand hotel on the Left Bank. Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Picasso, Matisse and Josephine Baker where among regular visitors to the hotel. Tailor-made Revolving Door for a Listed Building Boon Edam had previously installed the first wooden revolving door in the hotel during the mid-1980s. However, when ALROV bought the hotel their objective was clear: make this 4-star hotel and listed historic monument, the first palace of the Left Bank in Paris. The hotel closed for 2 years in 2016 for a complete renovation and restoration and our original wooden revolving door was uninstalled. This meant that we could once again work together to perfectly meet the client and architects clear objectives. Functional Beauty with 4 Wings We began the specification at the concept phase with famous French architect Wilmotte, working on an adaption of our Tourniket revolving door consisting of 4-wings with an internal diameter of 2800, free flow system on the curved walls in case of fire escape and a heater in the canopy. One prerequisite was that the revolving door also needed to be used as an emergency exit. Hotel Stats The Hotel Lutetia is set to be a modern, grand hotel designed for contemporary living: 184 designed bedrooms, 47 suites, 2 penthouse suites with private access to terraces as large as 74 m² and boasting an unrivalled 360-degree view of Paris. An Inspired Collaboration Projects like these involve many collaborators, and for this one we are working with the below inspiring team to restore this piece of Parisian history: The Architect: Wilmotte et associésThe Quantity Surveyor: GleedsThe Owner: ALROVBoon Edam Project leader: Patricia Lefeuvre Coming Soon Work on this historic project is already in its final stages, with the reopening planned for spring 2018. Keep an eye open on our portfolio pages for the completed images.   For Further Information, Please Contact: Michelle Wortel Group Marketing Manager T: +31 (0)299 38 08 00 E
