Boon Edam helps to revamp UK head office

The DePuy Synthes Companies, part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, required an entrance refurbishment.

With visitors coming from around the world, the reception area needed to better reflect the prestigious nature of the company. Boon Edam, a global market leader in entry solutions was appointed to provide a future proof product customised to the buildings requirements.

The refurbishment project to the 1970’s site in Leeds, had the aim of modernising the look of the building’s reception area, whilst providing enhanced security. With the door installation being the main design feature for the new reception, Boon Edam’s 140 years’ experience meant it was best placed to provide support throughout every stage of the project; from advising on the design and specification, to project management and installation.

Following consideration of the building’s requirements Boon Edam suggested and installed its most versatile entry solution; a full automatic Tourniket Revolving Door, with a security system and collapsible doorset. The Tourlock 360N security function has an electromagnetic lock which is engaged when the door is parked. Once activated, overhead anti-entrapment sensors scan the door compartments for the presence of a user and stop in the rest position upon the user’s exit, engaging the electric locks.

The collapsible leaves were added to the door specification as there is no pass door. Therefore, the Tourniket can be manually folded to increase the width, should it be required for large deliveries, disabled access or to allow for a high capacity throughput in the event of an emergency.

This entrance solution features two modes available via the Tourniket’s control panel, for automatic operation of the door. Day mode is activated via infra-red detectors, providing ease of use and automatic parking of the door. Night mode activates access from an external control system or a push button located internally; the doors begin rotating for 180 degrees to allow one authorised user to enter the building before returning to a stationary position.

The entrance formerly featured sliding doors which had made the area dark and unhospitable. Following the installation of Boon Edam’s Tourniket revolving door in a stainless-steel finish to further enhance the look of the entrance, the reception area was transformed to a light welcoming area. This solution also helps to prevent draft, dust and noise entering the building; as well as reducing the cold in the area, leading to increased building envelope efficiency.

Geoff Firth, Boon Edam’s Area Specification Manager commented, “We are delighted to have provided a solution for DePuy Synthes. The Tourniket revolving door is a versatile option for any building requiring a bespoke solution, and the objectives were effectively met in terms of sustainability, service and security requirements.”

DePuy Synthes has been committed to transforming the lives of patients worldwide since the 19th century and offers the world’s most comprehensive portfolio of orthopaedic and neuro products and services. The company offers products, services, programs and research and development capabilities for the advancement of healthcare.
