New Lifeline Speedlane’s Slim Body Catches the Eye Down Under
SYDNEY, AUSTRAILIA – Boon Edam Australia recently installed their first order of the Lifeline Series Speedlane, speed gates. The smooth installation was for a company within the sensitive financial sector who had a low security need to control the access of their staff on various floors of their building. The installation coincided with a floor-by-floor refurbishment over 3 floors, with the average throughput per floor being 120. Innovative Tall Glass Solution The wide version of the Speedlane Swing speed gate is able to be supplied, as standard to a height of 1800mm, with an easy, clear passage of 915mm. In this particular installation, the client was determined that the clear gap when the doors were open was 1000mm – a non-standard specification. Working together, we were able to meet this customised need by lowering the door height to 1650mm, which reduced the overall weight. This innovative solution accommodated the extra wide passageway, and still remained within the safety tested limits of the product. Product Design Secured The Order Our, then, newly launched speed gate was first seen at last year’s Security 2015 exhibition held in Melbourne. The Security Manager for this project was so impressed by the product design, the order was secured almost right away. Slimness and high quality aesthetics were, without doubt, key design aspects in being awarded this contract. Alastair Russell, National Sales Manager, Boon Edam Australia says: "I remember the client was one of the first visitors to our exhibition stand that year and when he left us, I knew I had just secured the very first installation of the Lifeline series Speedlanes in Australia". Further Installations The same client has since secured a further order in another Sydney location of 4 double units spread over the same number of floors. Security Essen 2016 We will be showcasing this new addition to our Lifeline series Speedlanes at Security Essen 2016 between 27 – 30th September, and would love you to pop in and see us at stand number 3B84. This year’s exhibit promised to be well worth the trip with a stand full of aesthetic and intuitive safety products.

Boon Edam Launches the Slimmest Single Wing Access Gate
Edam, The Netherlands – Today, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. announced the launch of the Winglock Swing, an intuitive, elegant new single wing access gate. This gate is specifically designed to either coordinate with the contemporary Speedlane Lifeline series (as an additional specialised lane) or serve as stand-alone single installation. The Winglock Swing offers the user an effortless passageway with carefully thought-out, intuitive LED lights to guide even the most inexperienced visitor through to their destination. A combination of green, orange and red colours displaying static, pulsing and flashing signals effectively guide traffic through without any delays. Energy Saving at its Best The product’s developers have engineered sustainable operation on the lowest energy output possible so as to reduce the carbon footprint. Just 9W of energy is used in standby mode and 20W while in motion, a huge accomplishment considering the industry standard is an average of 200W. Secure, Stable and Customisable A new and substantial floor plate design alleviates the need for an additional supporting side post, which notably simplifies installation into the flooring. The gate comes standard in brushed stainless steel, but also has the option for a wide range of finishes or colours based on the trendy Business, Elements or Expressions series. Glass, colours and finishes can also be largely customised to suit your business and brand requirements. Daan van Beusekom, Product Manager, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. says: "There has been a gap in the market for a product which is affordable and accessible, and we have responded by introducing our sleekest access gate. We strive to provide simple and effortless user experiences through our products and are extremely proud that the Winglock Swing meets those requirements, and more." Elegant Disabled and Wide Lane Access Boon Edam is committed to comfortable and safe access for everyone. Free and easy passageway is guaranteed for wheelchairs, large luggage and trollies, making this lane a flexible solution to almost any space.

Turnstile 100 to Feature on Discovery Science Channel This Week
The accredited Discovery Science Channel will be featuring our Boon Edam Turnstile 100 model on an upcoming American episode of ‘Machines: How They Work’ later this week. The Full Height Turnstile is one of our heavy duty security access control products ideally suited for perimeter security. Discover The Show The 30 minute episode will air this week Thursday 28th April 2016 at 10pm (EDT). Each episode delves into the intricate and fascinating ways in which everyday machines work. Using exceptional photo-realistic CGI animation, the show explores the intricate components of various machines and helps the audience understand how they are manufactured and ultimately operate after installation. Security is a Hot Topic This episode is set to answer the question: How does a turnstile allow authorised people to enter, but stop intruder in their tracks? The topic is hot in the world right now, with all eyes on security and helping people feel safe in public environments. The building and assembly component of the segment was shot in North Carolina at Boon Edam’s Lillington manufacturing plant, and the turnstiles in operation are at Cree Research in Research Triangle Park (NC). The location’s primary reason for having this turnstile installed is to prevent intruders from entering their secure area. “What an honor to be selected by Discovery Channel to be featured on this program,” said Mark Borto, Boon Edam, America CEO. “For many, a turnstile is nothing special, but the way this program explains the manufacture and use of the humble turnstile demonstrates there is a lot more going on than meets the eye.” We look forward to hearing your feedback on the segment.
