2.04   SAFETY
 A.    Provide a minimum of five (5) primary and/or secondary safety devices located vertically on the outer edge
       of the rotating wing, horizontally on the wing panels, vertically at the entrances. Devices shall include
       touchless, single and double field, Capacitance Field Detection (CFD), zone supervised Photocell Direct
       Reflection (PDR) and compressible safety switches. All devices shall be incorporated as follows:

       1. Vertical Safety Sensors

            - Two (2) no-touch PDR sensors covering the area immediately adjacent to the enclosure wall leading
           edges and must include zone-supervision. Activation of the PDR within the programmed safety zone
           shall cause the door to stop.

            - Two (2) no-touch CFD sensors placed on the leading edges of the rotating wings. Activation shall
           cause the door to stop.

            - Two (2) compressible safety switches on the leading edges of the rotating wings. Activation shall
           cause the door to stop.

       2. Horizontal Safety Sensors

            - Two (2) no-touch CFD sensors placed on the wing panels mid-rail and must include dual-field
           detection. "Field 1" shall cause the door to slow when an object is detected at approximately 10" in
           front of the wing panel and will cause the door to resume normal speed when the object moves out of
           the sensor range. "Field 2" shall cause the door to stop rotation when an object is detected within 3 - 4
           inches in front of the wing panel. Door will resume normal speed when the object is removed.

            - Four (4) compressible safety switches shall be placed on the bottom edge of the wing panels.
           Activation shall cause the door to stop. Supervision of all systems must be performed by the Micro-
           processor Control Unit (MCU) by conducting "self-monitoring" every 3 minutes. Malfunction of any
           device shall cause the door to stop and the error code shall be indicated on the diagnostic display of
           the MCU. (Doors without the "self monitoring function" will be considered unsafe and will not be

 B.    Emergency Escape Doors

       The center double swing door panels shall be fitted with friction bar stabilizer system and power cut-off
       safety switches. Door panels shall be held in place by electro-mechanical locking device and released
       upon fire alarm input or loss of power. The door can then be manually broken out to provide a clear and
       unimpeded evacuation path. Loss of power and/or fire alarm input shall be monitored by the MCU and its
       emergency battery unit. Activation of the emergency battery unit shall cause the door to rotate to the
       emergency position. (Doors that do not rotate to the emergency position during a power failure will not be
 C.    Emergency Stop

       The door shall include an emergency stop push button on each side of the curved enclosure and close to
       the door opening. When the button is pressed, the rotation shall stop.

 A.    Locking System
       The door will automatically cycle and rest in the full closed and lock position when the selector switch is
       placed in position #1. This locking system utilizes the magnetic brakes and motor drive units and is
       controlled by the (MCU) master control unit.

       An optional electro mechanical lock is available. Device shall set a hardened 1/2 diameter dead bolt
       between the fixed wall structure and the rotating door sections of the revolving door. This optional lock
       must be completely automatic and must be controlled by the MCU through the selector switch.

 B.    Activation Units
       Door shall be activated by manufacturer's standard flush-mounted concealed motion sensors. Activation
       units shall be solid state technology and work on the Doppler principle. Frequency change shall activate
       the revolving door. Activation units shall be concealed in the fixed ceiling area directly above throat
       opening. Two activation units per throat opening. (Surface mounted motion detectors are unacceptable.)

 C.    Program Control Device (PCD)
       Provide one (1) program control device on the interior left vertical jamb of the curved wall. PCD shall
       provide eight (8) function capability including locked in closed position, entry/exit with start from closed
       position, entry/exit with start from open position, continuous rotation, exit only with start from open position,
       exit only with start from closed position, manual operation/forward, manual operation/reverse and summer
       The PCD utilizes entry code access and does not require key operation during normal use of the door
       The PCD incorporates a circular buffer memory that records the last 600 operational events of the door
       system and uses visual displays to notify the user when planned maintenance should be performed, if the
       real time clock and climate control systems are activated and if manual key lockout is in effect.
       The real time clock is programmable for 3 different day schedules, 10 different operation modes per day
       schedule, weekly schedules and up to 16 exceptions for holidays.
       The PCD can also accommodate remote diagnostics via an optional modem and client supplied
       telephone/data line.

2.06   FINISH
 A.    Curved Enclosure - curved walls and canopy shall be Clear Anodized Aluminum Finish (Custom colors or
       finishes available).

 B.    Rotating Section - rotating wings and double swing doors shall be Clear Anodized Aluminum Finish
       (Custom colors or finishes available).

 C.    Ceiling - shall be white-coated laminate material.


 A.    Inspection
       Installer must examine the location and advise the Contractor of any conditions not suitable for proper
       installation and timely completion. Installation shall not proceed until conditions have been corrected.

 B.    Erection
       Install revolving doors in accordance with manufacturer's printed instructions and recommendations. Set
       units level, plumb, and true to line, with uniform hairline joints. Securely anchor in place by bolting to the
       fixing rings and silicone to adjacent materials. Use only factory trained and authorized erectors.

 C.    Adjustment
       Installer shall adjust door and hardware for smooth operation, proper engagement of weather-stripping, and
       test all functions of the door system for specified performance.

 D.    Instruction
       Training, of Owner's Maintenance personnel, shall be scheduled for routine service requirements, cleaning,
       lubrication, adjustments and inspection of major components.

 E.    Cleaning
        Clean metal surfaces promptly after installation, exercising care to avoid damage to finishes. Clean glass
        surfaces after installation and remove excess glazing and/or sealant compounds, dirt, labels, etc.
