Boon Edam’s Latest Revolving Door Receives UL Certification
The BoonAssist TQ revolving door offers a low-energy, power assistance motor that reduces the force needed to push the door by up to 50%.
LILLINGTON, N.C. — Boon Edam, a provider of security entrances and architectural revolving doors, announces its BoonAssist TQ manual revolving door has been tested and certified to confirm with UL Standard 325 and CSA 22.2, a standard established by UL (United Laboratories) for door, drapery, gate, louver and window operators and systems.
UL Standard 325 and CSA 22.2 (the harmonized standard in Canada) are the prevalent industry standards for ensuring the safe operation of revolving doors in the United States and Canada.
This certification assures Boon Edam customers that the product has been rigorously tested by a third party and found to operate in a safe and predictable manner at any installed location, according to the company.
Boon Edam says while all of its 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 their customers.
The BoonAssist TQ has three unique features: it offers a low-energy, power assistance motor that reduces the force needed to push the door by up to 50%, it has speed control to ensure the rotation speed is always safe, and, the door wings always come to a stop with the wings pointed to the end posts of the throat opening (a.k.a., “quarter pointing”).
As a result of these three features, the BoonAssist TQ is specified for many projects where user comfort and safety are considered essential, according to the company.
In addition, the BoonAssist TQ can be upgraded with extra security options, such as:
- Remote locking capability
- An instantaneous panic-locking capability (in case of a threat trying to enter the building)
- Integration with access control systems to restrict access into public buildings during afterhours
“Boon Edam is driven to provide safe and secure entrances around the globe and we’re continuously investing to ensure our products exceed operational standards,” says Valerie Anderson, president and managing director at Boon Edam. “When our entrances conform with UL standards, our North American customers gain peace of mind knowing that a reputable 3rd-party has rigorously tested and confirmed they will operate safely at any location.”
