Automated revolving doors

Access & Identity Management Handbook 2012 Access Control & Identity Management

Turnstar implements access control for religious organisation.

Turnstar Systems’ ATLAS revolving door was the logical choice when it came to controlling the entrance of the new multimillion Rand development of the Christian Family Church International in Bonaero Park, Johannesburg.

Today, the Christian Family Church has over 14 000 members including a worship team which has been acclaimed by many as being one of the best in the world. The Christian Family Church has branched out over 250 churches throughout southern Africa, as well as in Europe, USA, New Zealand, Australia, Mauritius and Kenya.

The welfare department of the church reaches out to the poor and homeless, with teams going into the orphanages, old age homes, prisons and other institutions, bringing clothing, food and items of comfort to the needy. A children’s ministry provides a safe and secure environment for children of all ages.

A revolving door saves the customer money and helps to preserve the environment, one step at a time. That is because conventional hinged and sliding doors can allow up to eight times as much airflow as a revolving door, which creates a draft block between the inside and outside of a building.

Two ATLAS revolving doors were installed at the Church. A 3 m diameter and a 1,8 m diameter revolving door. Both products are 3-wing revolving doors. The wings are of 12 mm toughened glass and the curved frame is of 8 mm toughened glass. Polypropylene brushes are also provided to ensure a draft block. Safety is of great concern when installing a revolving door and the ATLAS manual revolving door is fitted with a heavy-duty speed controller in order to prevent the door from over speeding, which can cause injury.

With a 5-year guarantee, the TRIDENT waist height turnstile was chosen for the entrance to the children’s play and study areas. The waist height turnstile is a prestige product designed with heavy duty applications in mind. The turnstile is extremely reliable and is not only fitted with the Turnstar ROTALOK rotation locking mechanism, but also with the Turnstar ROTASLO hydraulic damping system which ensures ultra-quiet operation. The TRIDENT turnstiles were manufactured from 304 grade stainless steel in order to meet the customer’s aesthetic requirements.
