Add beauty and energy savings to your Kansas City business with automatic revolving doors. Commercial automatic revolving doors typically consist of three or four doors that hang on a central shaft and rotate around a vertical axis within a cylindrical enclosure. Automatic revolving doors are powered above/below the central shaft, or along the perimeter. Around the central shaft of the revolving door, there are usually three or four panels called “wings” or “leaves.” The wings are almost always constructed with glass doors to allow pedestrians to see and anticipate each other while passing through the door. They also have a speed control to prevent people from spinning them too fast. Large diameter revolving doors can accommodate larger items like strollers and luggage racks. For fire safety reasons, American revolving doors are now collapsible. Some jurisdictions require them to have at least one hinged door on either side as well. Automatic Door Systems, we will make sure when we install your commercial automatic revolving doors that they meet all industry regulations.
Revolving doors not only allow large numbers of people to pass in and out, but they are very energy efficient. With the current focus on designing energy efficient, green buildings, revolving doors are a great choice for your entrance. Because commercial revolving doors provide an always open, always closed enclosure, they act as an airlock and prevent drafts from entering the building. This results in substantial efficiency and energy savings. They are ideal for hotels, shopping malls, cinemas, train stations, airports, convention centers, sporting venues, hospitals, etc.
Automatic revolving doors can be designed for one-way traffic if needed. The traffic can be enter only or exit only. They are also compatible with access control systems such as card-readers, biometric recognition, or other security measures. Security systems also enable persons to be separated by means of the “anti-piggybacking” (two people in one segment) and “anti-tailgating” (persons entering too close together) functions.
