Revolving Doors, when automated, can be paired with BEA sensors to provide activation and safety for the door. Revolving Doors, with their ability to separate environments, are ideal for buildings affected by negative pressure, such as hotel lobbies or other buildings with large “atrium-type” entrances. BEA’s activation and safety sensors help keep revolving doors in compliance with key ANSI standards. The safety sensors found on Revolving Doors create “curtains” that surround the door leaf when in motion, stopping the door if a person comes in contact with the protective curtain.
Motions sensors mounted above Revolving Doors are effective and reliable activation solutions. Through the use of microwave technology, sensors are able to detect incoming and departing traffic and activate the doors accordingly.
Door-mounted and overhead safety sensors are commonly used on Revolving Doors for pinch-zone and panel protection. These active infrared sensors are capable of ignoring changing ground conditions to ensure that protection remains constant in key safety zones around the door.
Hardwired and wireless push plates can be used for Revolving Door activation. These plates improve accessibility and serve as an alternative means of activation if overhead motion sensors are not present.
