Automatic revolving doors
The best entrance solution for when the interior environment is a priority is an automatic revolving door. Besam revolving doors come in two, three and four-wing models that offer an impressive appearance while effectively separating indoor and outdoor climates. The range includes three and four-wing models with one-way access control, as well as a four-wing revolving door that can be configured for two-way access control. Large-capacity two and three-wing models suitable for high-traffic applications are also available.
An air curtain creates an ‘invisible door’ using an air stream that effectively separates the outdoor and indoor air temperatures when the physical door is open. Paired with a Besam automatic door, air curtains enhance comfort, create more usable space and help minimise energy consumption. The product line includes air curtains that can be mounted horizontally or vertically depending on the configuration of the entrance, and airflow can be heated by electricity or water.
Automatic door service and maintenance
All Besam products and services are backed by over 45 years of engineering experience as well as a wealth of application expertise. Besam’s international network of service teams and technicians is uniquely positioned to service all automatic doors, regardless of the manufacturer.
Besam offers a range of service plans that can be tailored to individual needs. From planned maintenance over the life cycle of the entrance to regular safety inspections to emergency breakdown service, Besam certified technicians provide peace of mind that your doors are operating optimally.
