1. Air Circulation
Having revolving doors in your premises ensures that the room stays at the present temperatures. These doors keep cold air out and maintain a warm interior as they are designed to serve as an airlock. When the doors are pushed, they take in little cold air from the outside and a little warm air from the inside. Since these doors are usually designed for big and busy buildings, they give a ‘fan’ like effect with their constant revolution.
2. Saves Energy Costs
According to a study by MIT, doors which revolve can save up to 75% in energy costs depending on their usage. Many large buildings aim at reducing their energy costs, and these kinds of doors play a significant role in doing just that. The use of heating and cooling systems is reduced due to the chimney effect made possible by the use of these doors.
3. Improves Flow of People In and Out of Buildings
Cities in Ireland like Cork, Dublin and Belfast are densely populated and attract a lot of people to the huge buildings. The traffic in these buildings needs doors that allow a smooth flow of people in and out of the entrances to avoid congestion. Doors that are made to revolve around their shafts make it possible for more people to get in and out of these buildings at once. A door with four wings, for example, can allow up to eight people in and out of the building at once.
4. Prevent Strong Winds
Using swinging or hinged doors in buildings allow strong winds to enter the premises easily without any barriers. Strong winds can blow off light objects inside the building and destroy fragile items. The use of doors that revolve around their shafts eliminates this phenomenon by ensuring that only light wind can get into the premises when the doors rotate.
5. Evacuation Safety
While constructing a public building in Ireland, the safety of the occupants is one of the significant factors to consider. In case of an emergency, like fire, people can be evacuated from the buildings fast and conveniently as the doors can let many people out of the buildings at once. These doors also prevent people from crowding on the exit during an emergency due to their revolving effect.
Businesses in Ireland serve different people on a daily basis, some of them who are handicapped and cannot push heavy hinged doors. In cities like Dublin, Cork and Belfast where people do their shopping in huge buildings may find it hard to push swinging doors with shopping on their hands. A revolving door makes it possible for people with loads to push them with ease while entering or exiting the premises.
Our doors are available in various finishes, including a choice of RAL colour, anodised, polished V2A stainless steel, anodised stainless steel effect or industry polished V2A stainless steel.
When designing a business premise which will serve many people, having a well-illuminated building without the use of energy bulbs is one of the primary considerations. A glass revolving door can let in enough natural light into the building. Natural lights prevent the use of light bulbs which can increase the temperature in the premises.
8. Noise Reduction
Hinged or swinging doors in busy business premises may cause unnecessary noises during opening from their hinges. At other times, people may bang doors when entering or leaving the building which causes a disturbance to the occupants. This phenomenon of noises is eliminated by the use of doors that revolve around their shafts as they cannot be banged.
9. Safe to Use
Many businesses in Ireland host different people, including little children. Having heavy hinged or swinging doors in big premises is a safety hazard, especially for the children who tend to play with these kinds of doors. Children trying to open heavy hinged doors are at risk of hurting their fingers or legs as the doors meet the frame. A glass revolving door is light in weight and can be opened by children without any risk of hurting their fingers as the doors do not swing and have no frames.
10. Easier Security Monitoring
Having a revolving glass door on a business premises makes it easy to monitor the building. Security personnel can see and anticipate people coming or leaving the premises through the glass doors. At other times, metal detectors and radiation detectors can be placed in these doors to detect when a person access the building in the wrong direction with minimal supervision.
11. Efficient Advertisement
Using a glass revolving door in your business premises makes it possible to display advertisements, sculptures, plants and mannequins. Large doors can hold a variety of display items that clients can sample before entering the building.
A glass revolving door can become an integral part of a businesses architecture, offering ease of entry, cost savings through energy efficiency and at the same time aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
