Boon Edam to Participate in First Virtual GSX+ Event

Lillington, North Carolina, September 9, 2020 Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced that they will be exhibiting in the first virtual Global Security Exchange Plus (GSX+) conference, September 21-25, 2020. The company will be introducing a new optical turnstile, the Speedlane Compact, and will also be presenting an educational session about Scalable Security at the event.

This year, the ASIS International organization is presenting GSX+ as a fully virtual conference to provide the security industry with a forum to learn, network and collaborate in this pandemic year. With more than 80 educational sessions and a virtual Marketplace, GSX+ is offering attendees and exhibitors alike the same high level of community and education opportunities offered each year at the show, now from the safety of their own homes.

We are excited to be participating in this groundbreaking event, said Tracie Thomas, Vice President of Marketing, Boon Edam USA. We look forward to connecting with other security professionals to discuss how they can secure their facilities from unauthorized access and also adjust their entrances to accomodate COVID and return to work planning.

New Compact Optical Turnstile for Smaller Spaces

In their Marketplace Profile, Boon Edam will be demonstrating their new Speedlane Compact optical turnstile, which recently won a 2020 Security Today New Product of the Year Award for Pedestrian Security Entrances.€ The Compact is a shorter security barrier with the same level of security as larger optical turnstile models. It features swinging barriers, generous space for access control or biometric device integration, and tailgating, safety and low-object detection sensors all in a compact footprint ideal for locations where interior space is at a premium.

Touchless Entry Without Compromising Security

As facilities look to re-open safely without compromising security, one of the most in-demand features right now is the touchless entry experience. In Boon Edam Marketplace Profile attendees will discover which types of security entrance fit that need. Additionally, Boon Edam Entry Experts will be present during the entire event to answer questions, and also available to meet via the GSX+ meeting platform for face-to-face discussions via video.

Subject-Matter Expert to Present Educational Webinar

Security entrances offer a wide degree of capabilities when it comes to addressing tailgating. Attendees can learn to identify the best entrance type for each area of their building in a 15-minute, Boon TV episode with special guest JC Powell, Vice President of Sales at Boon Edam. In the session, titled Closing the Gap in Physical Security, JC shares the three basic capability levels of security entrances relative to tailgating mitigation and discusses which security entrances are the best choice for each objective.
