Boon Edam to showcase energy generating door at Ecobuild 2013


Boon Edam will be exhibiting in March at Ecobuild, the world’s largest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment. The 2013 show is taking place at Excel London on 5-7th March and you will find Boon Edam on stand N816.

They will be showcasing their energy generating revolving door – the NRG+2 Tourniket, as well as highlighting the “always open, always close” benefits that revolving doors have on energy consumption.

The NRG+2 Tourniket is equipped with a power generating unit that produces electricity from kinetic energy conversion, when people enter. Like other revolving doors, a significant saving on heat loss is achieved over standard sliding or swing doors.

Graeme Firth, Managing Director explains:

“A significant amount of the total energy loss in a well insulated building occurs through and around standard doors and windows. However, installation of a revolving door at your building’s entrance can considerably lower the amount of heat loss, and in turn reduce your buildings energy consumption. Boon Edam sees this year’s Ecobuild show as the perfect opportunity to showcase the benefits revolving doors present, and look forward to sharing this knowledge with visitors to our stand.

Revolving doors really are the perfect solution when looking to save money on energy bills, and create a sustainable entrance for your building.”

To assist Architects and specifiers with their energy calculations, Boon Edam have developed a bespoke energy saving software solution. Many people are unaware that revolving doors reduce drafts, so this software illustrates the energy savings and heat loss prevention offered by this type of door. Boon Edam’s energy savings software provides quantified information about energy efficiency and comfort issues related to entrances, in addition to product-specific advice. An example of how the software has been used on previous projects will be available on their stand at Ecobuild.

In addition you can experience the never before seen Boon Edam Ecolane, a concept security lane design made from completely recycled materials.

Visit Boon Edam on stand N816, where you will find the team demonstrating energy saving benefits of a revolving door, and find out more about their product range.
