Royal Boon Edam is the global leader in revolving doors, speedgates and turnstiles, with a manufacturing history of over 100 years and a worldwide market share above 50%. 

In Australia since 2015, Boon Edam provides a comprehensive range of revolving doors and security entrance equipment that is used in facilities where security is of the highest priority.

This global brand partnered with NBS Source in 2020, after identifying the opportunity to provide architects and specifiers access to all their technical product specification information and BIM objects in one location.

Professionals who are involved in the design and construction process, “will be able to incorporate our products straight into the drawing and have access to all our BIM content,” says Boon Edam’s Australian Business Development Manager Darren Assey. 

“They will also be able, should they so choose, to involve us in that design phase to assist with flow surveys, custom designs and bespoke solutions, including touchless entrance solutions that respond to new and ever-changing hygiene and security requirements.”

Boon Edam’s Australasian operation is fully committed to the brand’s corporate values of steadfast excellence, fit-for-purpose technology and value in revolving doors and entrance security technologies, making them the “Entry Experts”.

By joining with NBS, Boon Edam is making its mark as an “entrance solution provider and partner, rather than just a product supplier,” says Darren.

“We would like the local market to think of us as not just a reliable supplier with products that are fit for purpose and value for money but as a trusted partner whom they can rely upon to provide reliable advice and will be there for them in the long term.”

As Darren shares, “This digital connection between the product library and the specification means that product information is up to date and no vital product information is lost during the specification writing component.”

By using BIM, architects and specifiers can select key product attributes based on their clients’ brief. In the case of Boon Edam, these attributes can be customised to suit the project. Darren explains that, “This way, Boon Edam’s products become part of an integrated solution, rather than a product in isolation.”  

NBS Source is a single digital source of building product information structured in a standardised format (Uniclass2015) from thousands of manufacturers. It combines everything specifiers need to make design decisions in one place – product properties, certifications, associated brochures and data sheets, specification clauses and digital objects.

With NBS Source, specifiers can add product data directly into a specification or design model via full integration with NBS Chorus in the click of a button, saving countless hours of hunting down products on the web or in printed brochures.


Australian technical product specification information and BIM objects from Boon Edam are now available on NBS Source.
