A Guide To Security Revolving Doors [Blog]

A blog written by FAAC Entrance Solutions

There are many factors to consider when specifying a security revolving door, and one of them is that a door might not need access control at all times.

Having the capacity to switch between fully automatic and access controlled entrances is not only possible but is also one of the best solutions for buildings such as hotels, finance or pharmaceutical buildings.

Reduce the risk involved in data and product theft and increase employee safety. Commonly installed with a two-factor or multi-factor identification process, access control systems could require a card or token and a piece of information, such as a password.

Revolving doors, are probably the most utilised type of entrance system on major offices in metropolitan areas. By their very nature they offer the best way on controlling an internal environment with their “always open, always closed” system and will only let in/let out a pocket of air on each revolution.

Security revolving doors are available in a various diameters, heights and finish but they also come with various security levels associated with them. Many security firms will often refer to the 4 D’s of security: Deter, Detect, Delay and Defend and they can be defined as the following:

  • Deter – The prevention of criminal activity on your building
  • Detect – The detection of any security breaches on your building
  • Delay – The process of slowing down an intrusion or attack on your building
  • Defend – The act of responding to your attackers if the above 3 fail

  • It is worth discussing what you want to achieve in terms of deterring, detecting or delaying attack but also consider what is most important.
