The Original Revolving Door


The Tourniket was the first revolving door we manufactured; created in 1903, the Tourniket was originally constructed mainly from timber and had to be operated manually. Since then its construction and the technology within have evolved into a sophisticated and intelligent revolving door. The Tourniket is still at the basis of many of the special projects we are involved in as it is an incredibly versatile entry solution. Its engineering quality has been proven again and again in many different buildings and projects.

The Tourniket is available in a variety of colours and finishes. In many buildings a powder coated or anodised aluminium version is chosen which can be finished in virtually any colour you can think of. The wood cladded Tourniket takes you back to the early history of the revolving door and gives a classic retro look while a stainless steel or mirror finished look can create a modern or even futuristic look. This door is a particular favourite of ours.

Disabled Access and Emergency Egress
Besides a variety of finish and colour options, the Tourniket also offers a wide range of practical solutions that ensure the functionality of the entry in a building. When you design a building, you want it to be accessible for everyone, including, and perhaps especially, those with a physical impairment. Boon Edam developed the Autofolding Tourniket specifically for those situations where disabled access is required in a small lobby or entry. It is available in diameters starting from 2800 mm, whereas most revolving doors cannot offer disabled access in doors smaller than 3400 mm diameter. What makes the Autofolding Tourniket unique is the door set that can collapse itself automatically to create a completely free passage for wheelchairs and trollies.

Other functionalities that the Tourniket can offer include collapsible door sets for emergency egress and a variety of night locking options among others.
