Operation Options

The operation of the automatic revolving door is facilitated by Card Readers and/or a Control Station with a selection of 4 modes of operation – Controlled Access, Free Access, Emergency and Night Lock mode.

 

Controlled Access Entry/Exit Mode

a) From a locked position, the revolving door is unlocked by a remote signal via IN or OUT push-buttons, or by a card reader positioned on the door. It may only rotate in the direction instigated by a hand-push.
b) If the door is pushed in the chosen direction through approximately 3 degrees (after release signal IN or OUT has been received) the door will be driven through 90 degrees of movement and will then lock.

 

Free Access Entry/Exit Mode

a) When the user activates the door by pushing in the chosen direction by approximately 3 degrees, the door will automatically start revolving through 360 degrees of movement before coming to rest.
b) If another person enters the revolving door during the “coming to rest” period the door is re-energized for a further 360 degree movement.
c) The door may be locked at any time during the free access mode. However, several degrees of rotation must be allowed for, as movement of the revolving door must be slowed down prior to locking.



Emergency Mode

The door is unlocked and the rotor freely revolves in both directions.

 

Night Lock Mode

It locates rotor in 45 degree position and locks – i.e. it provides maximum “double leaf” securityOur STD Turnstile Logic panel is offered to interface turnstile locking arrangement with controls supplied by other contractors (card-reader, push-button, tokens, etc.). It comprises an 80VA transformer with rectifier converting 220V AC to power lock arrangement and control boards.

 

Door User Safety

If the user moves slowly or accidentally stops, the door will sense and obstruction and stop, exerting only a negligible force. In addition, an optional safety switch on each upright of the outer casing is available.

 

Manual Mode

The door rotor operation is manual and it is “locked” mechanically. A standard feature is the self-centring function that stops the rotor in a “locked” position.

 

Design Features

Flow Systems offers Revolving Doors from 1.4 meters in diameter to 5 meters. The main frame of the Revolving Doors is of sturdy fully welded construction, structurally self-contained, from low-carbon steel heavy channels, flat bars and square hollow section combined with aluminum, or stainless steel, or baked enamel painted steel on all visible surfaces. All unexposed metal parts are painted for corrosion protection. The four leaf revolving rotor either of reinforced aluminum “space frame” glazed with 8.5mm thick laminated clear glass, or frame less with 12mm thick toughened glass.

 

Aesthetics

All revolving doors have a finish of the highest quality. The lasting impression is of an attractive entrance created by a combination of clean vertical and horizontal lines and the cylinder of the door. The rotor appears light, but is of a strong “space frame” design. The floor is covered by optional rugged carpet, or by the tiles of the entrance. The outer body is available with solid curved glass side panels, or with steel, stainless steel or aluminum panels for highest quality finish.

 

Installation

Revolving Doors are all completely factory assembled and tested to minimize installation time. The area floor surface mounting requires the floor to have a leveled surface with a minimum strength of 25Mpa, suitable to accept M10 x 100mm anchor bolts. The unit mass is approximately 500Kg’s and its electrical power requirement is 880 V AC 3A (depending on Revolving Door model chosen).
