Boon Edam Revolving Doors for Fondation Louis Vuitton!
Garges-lès-Gonesse, France - On the 27th of October the Fondation Louis Vuitton opened its doors to the public after extensive renovations that started in 2008. The Fondation Louis Vuitton aims to promote art and culture and houses a permanent collection of works of art from the personal collection of Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH. As part of the modern new building, Boon Edam installed four Tourniket revolving doors. A Unique Building The building was designed by the American-Canadian architect Frank Gehry who is known for his design for the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, Spain. Situated in the Jardin d'Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne in Paris, France, this 48m high glass building is shaped like a sail boat with sails inflated by the wind. The complicated design consists of 3,584 tailor made glass panels with a total surface of 13,500 m2 and a door overhang of more than 20 m. A Sustainable Building The project's focus on sustainability made it the perfect pilot project for a new sustainability certificate for cultural buildings, developed by HQE®. The High Quality Environmental Standard (HQE) is the French standard for green building, based on international principles for sustainable development. The installation of revolving doors is one of the many examples in which sustainable design and development were incorporated in this building. The four Tourniket revolving doors were supplied by Boon Edam and are all identical. Two were placed at the North side of the building and two on the South entrance.

Design Meets Security: Boon Edam Launches Revolutionary Access Control Barrier Series in Europe
Edam, The Netherlands - The business world is ever changing. With people passing through all day long, the security of sensitive areas of buildings, as well as the personal safety of the people visiting must be guaranteed. Recognising this, Boon Edam has created a brand new security product range to manage the flow of people in and around a building. But how can a secure entrance environment be achieved whilst still being inviting? The Ultimate Entry Experience The ever changing business world has seen traditional 9-5 working days being replaced with a twenty-four seven culture. With this, a new view on building security is required as it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of who is in the building, where and when. Using new technologies and premium materials, Boon Edam has developed the New Speedlane Lifeline Series. An innovative and highly customisable security barrier for access control, which launches across Europe this January. On their journey to determine the requirements for the new product range, Boon Edam studied the behaviour of pedestrian mobility and listened to architects, building managers and tenants alike. This insight opened up a whole new world of possibilities for the company to create something truly unique. “As work environments become increasingly dynamic, the need for increased security measures within buildings grows. Knowing this, we started seeing things from a new perspective to step ahead and meet changing demands.” explains Product Manager Daan van Beusekom. “As the name ‘Lifeline’ indicates, the product is alive and living. A sophisticated entry management system, we have designed the Speedlane Lifeline Series to be intuitive, interacting with all who approach it and guiding visitors through a secure gateway to their destination.” Intuitive, Interactive, Innovative Taking into consideration their findings, Boon Edam has launched the exquisitely designed, Speedlane Lifeline Series. The new product range, which includes the slimmest security barrer in the industry, consists of three models, the Slide, Swing and Open, each of which are available in a variety of options. Whether it’s for a higher security level or disabled access, numerous combinations are possible. Recognising that each installation is different, the modular systems mean the product is highly customisable. Customers can accentuate their chosen product by selecting from an array of different colour options and finishes. Whether making a statement, fitting with corporate identity colours or creating a harmonious interior design. The Speedlane Lifeline Series is available as of 26th January 2015, and can be ordered via Boon Edam subsidiaries and distributors across Europe. Interested customers also have the opportunity of visiting Boon Edam’s showroom in Edam, The Netherlands, to see the full product range first hand. Visits can be arranged via their website.

Special Doors by Boon Edam part of Innovative Extension of Mauritshuis
Edam, the Netherlands, 27 June 2014 – Today the Mauritshuis reopens its doors after a two year renovation. Located in the heart of The Hague, the museum is world renowned for their high quality art collection. This 17th century building houses the Royal Cabinet of Paintings with over 200 paintings by Dutch and Flemish painters from the Dutch Golden Age. Boon Edam provided two special revolving doors in the new extension of the museum. Elegant Renovation The Mauritshuis has doubled its floor space by building an underground extension to the opposite side of the street. The newly connected corner building will be called the “Royal Dutch Shell Wing”. The museum itself has been modernised as well: windows, climate control and lighting have been replaced and the interior has been improved and updated. The design by Hans van Heeswijk architects has ensured that the elegant and intimate atmosphere has been maintained. Technical and Logistical Challenge The underground connection of the old and the new building and the lowering of the foundations of the new wing were a technical feat in itself. The limited space the builders had to manoeuver and the location directly next to the prime minister’s office made this building project even more complex. Boon Edam was faced with the challenge of installing two automatic revolving doors for the new extension of the museum. The, entry to the museum is around 6 meters below street level, where a 4600 mm tall Tourniket revolving door was placed. The height of the revolving door and its location were both technically and logistically challenging for the company. Additionally, a fully glass Crystal Tourniket revolving door was placed in the entry to the museum café in the new wing. The low height under canopy for this door meant that the usual construction of the door proved impossible; instead the company placed a special ring in the building’s ceiling. Through a well-thought out plan and strong communication between Boon Edam and the architect, the project was carried out without any problems ensuring that the museum reopens today as planned.
