Boon Edam Inc. announced that Park House, a commercial space located in London, installed entry solutions at two separate main entrances to the building. One entrance features a special European door model, the Circleslide sliding door; the other is outfitted with four lanes of Speedlane Swing optical turnstiles for increased lobby security.
Park House is a busy 195,000 sq. ft. office, retail, and apartment space with one main entrance facing Finsbury Circus, the last remaining section of London’s oldest public park (opened in 1607). The other entrance faces Eldon Street, a location that is close to transit stations and easily accessible to commuters.
In 2019, Park House underwent a renovation steered by Stiff + Trevillion, a renowned architect in London. The firm felt it was necessary to increase the efficiency of pedestrian traffic flow into the building and open another entrance near Finsbury Circus. This upgrade meant that another entry solution would be required in order to restrict access to certain areas of the building not meant for casual visitors. The firm selected the Boon Edam Speedlane Swing optical turnstile to control access and detect any tailgating attempts by unauthorized individuals.
