Safety First in The Evolution Tower
Moscow, Russia, March 2018 – We are proud to announce that our Russian subsidiary has been awarded the contract to secure the entrances to the prestigious Evolution Tower. A Secure Architectural City Landmark The building, also known as City Palace Tower or Wedding Palace, had undeniably become a new city landmark and we are honoured to be selected in the project. Boon Edam Russia will be supplying 42 Lifeline Speedlane Swing speed gates and 13 Winglock 900 access gates within the building. In a world now dominated by skyscraper cityscapes, the importance of a safe, yet still welcoming entrance solutions is paramount. The Evolution Tower’s 80,000 m2 office space and 36,000 m2 shopping and entertainment facilities, meant that high throughput with good security was a balance which needed to be met. Multifunctional Centre for Everyone Located on the Presnenskaya Embankment of the Moskva River, the twisting building began construction in 2011 and is the brainchild of British architect Tony Kettle for Kettle Collective and Scottish artist, Prof. Karen Forbes from the University of Edinburgh. The building is a true masterpiece of well-thought out spaces including 2 hectares of a landscaped public square, a 10 metre high ceremonial staircase, water features, offices and two stories of prime retail space, all connected to a metro station and bridge over the river. The concept inspiration comes from many places including the Rodin sculpture, ‘The Kiss’ and resembles two ribbons wrapping around one another, and as a nice finishing touch, has a ballroom on the top floor. The innovative design celebrates speed, energy and the modern urban Russian city life. It is a fantastic architectural and engineering statement.

Enter The Frame via Boon Edam Revolving Doors
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, March 2018 – Boon Edam Middle East recently saw 3 years of close collaboration come to fruition at the opening of the impressive UAE landmarked known as ‘The Dubai Frame’. Welcome and Secure Situated in Zabeel Park in Dubai, The Dubai Frame is expected to be a major tourist destination attracting two million people yearly to see the view of old and new Dubai from the top of the Frame. Boon Edam Middle East first tendered for the Dubai Frame project, early 2015 and continued to work closely with the project’s façade contractor before securing the order for delivering the main entry, consisting of several 3-wing Tourniket revolving doors. Winning Under Tight Time Pressure After a quick approval process we were able to meet the tight programme deadlines, which required the installation of the revolving door entry to be carried out early in 2017. The spectacular Dubai Frame opened to the public at the beginning of 2018. Part of an Iconic Concept The Boon Edam doors provide an impressive entrance to a museum on the ground floor, showcasing Dubai's transformation from an old fishing village to the metropolis it is today. The architectural structure is positioned in such a way that representative landmarks of modern Dubai can be seen on one side, while from the other side, visitors can view older parts of the city. The concept takes the visitors to a journey through time on three different levels: old Dubai, present Dubai and future Dubai. Dubai Frame Facts The frame measures 150 metres high and 93 metres wide. The two towers are connected by a 100-square-metre bridge, which has a 25-square-metre glass panel in the middle offering a great 360 degree view. It was designed by award-winning architect Fernando Donis, who also designed Dubai’s Porsche Design Towers, and the Dubai Renaissance Tower. Exterior design of Dubai Frame was inspired from the logo of Expo 2020. There is a museum on the ground floor that will showcase Dubai’s transformation from fishing village to metropolis. It is predicted the frame will become a major tourist destination in the city, like the Burj Khalifa and the Burj Al Arab. The project is worth Dhs160 million.
