For any modern business premises, aesthetics and functionality go hand in hand. One crucial element that plays a significant role in enhancing the overall experience is the choice of doors. Glass doors always leave a lasting impression on visitors, whilst also offering functional benefits for anyone entering or existing the building.

Whether they’re installed for the facade or the inside of a business premises, there are many customisable options out there to fit all purposes. EA Group have put together this guide to explain some of the less obvious benefits that different types of glass doors can bring to your business.

Benefits of glass doors for commercial buildings

  1. Aesthetic appealGlass doors exude elegance and offer transparency, giving your business a sophisticated and contemporary look. They allow natural light to permeate, creating an inviting and open ambience that resonates positively with visitors.

    If you’re working from a busy open-plan office and want to create divides, but keep the same aesthetic, installing glass panels and doors can be the ideal option. Your office can appear bigger with glass doors rather than opaque, light-blocking doors.
  2. First impressionYour entrance speaks volumes about your brand. When you’re inviting clients into your building, you want to immediately project the right company image. Glass doors offer a sleek and stylish entrance that immediately communicates a sense of professionalism and attention to detail.

  3. Enhanced visibilityGlass doors provide unobstructed views of your establishment’s interior, allowing potential customers to glimpse your products or services before stepping inside. This visibility can pique their interest and curiosity.

    Business premises also look much bigger when natural light is allowed to pass through glass panes. If you’re looking for glass-paned speed lanes, internal doors or automatic doors, we can help!
  4. Energy efficiencyHigh-quality glass doors are often equipped with energy-efficient features, such as low-emissivity (low-E) coatings that regulate indoor temperature and reduce energy consumption This saves you money in the long run. If you’re looking to reduce your monthly energy spend, installing glass windowpanes can be a great long-term solution. Beyond the initial investment, you can expect to see major reductions in spend in the long run.

Over the years, revolving doors have become increasingly popular for offices and workplaces around the UK. However, most business owners still don’t know how well their revolving door can protect their business, while still maintaining efficiency. 

Many people invest in the revolving door for the professional look alone, but there are so many more features that the revolving door holds to help your business work better.

So, if you’re looking to upgrade your businesses security and efficiency with a revolving door, read on to find out more! 

Why is security important for businesses

Having security systems in place in the workplace is essential to ensure peace of mind and regulatory compliance. From a legal perspective it can also be crucial to protect the business from any liability in the event of a security place. These regulations are put in place for the protection of employees and customers who may be in the workplace. 

However, the protection of employees isn’t the only reason for businesses to have security, it’s also there to protect the business’s assets in the event of crime taking place.

Many businesses are fully equipped with cameras and key codes, however, one security measure that some people may look past are your doors themselves. At EA Group we specialise in supporting businesses by sourcing and installing revolving doors, to help maximise security and efficiency. The revolving door can provide a physical barrier that can make it more difficult for unauthorized individuals to enter the building, thereby increasing security.

So how do revolving doors work?

Revolving doors work by rotating around a central axis, allowing people to enter and exit a building without having to push through traditional swinging doors. The doors also have energy-saving features, such as airtight seals that help reduce energy consumption in buildings. 

Are revolving doors safe?

Revolving doors can be designed with speed controllers. Automatic revolving doors can also have safety features such as emergency brakes and panic bars hardware that allow for an easy exit in case of emergency. In the event of power failure, those emergency brakes will be activated, and the door will be locked in the open position.

Most modern revolving doors also have automatic sensors that are used to detect when someone is in the doorway, these sensors are located in the door frames and detect the movement or presence of an object or person, this stops the doors from closing and causing harm.

Lastly, it’s important to regularly maintain and inspect the revolving doors to ensure that it is in good working order and to ensure that all the safety features are functioning properly. At EA Group we can support your revolving doors through regular maintenance. If you’re looking to increase capacity or accessibility, get in touch for advice on how to expand your entrance. 

How efficient are revolving doors 

Revolving doors are generally considered to be efficient in terms of both energy conservation and people flow. Here are some key features that make the revolving door a popular choice for businesses. 


Revolving doors have airtight seals that help to reduce energy consumption by preventing drafts from entering the building. This can help to lower heating and cooling costs for businesses.

Great for controlling traffic flow

Revolving doors are designed to control the flow of people entering and exiting the building, reducing congestion, and improving improve the overall flow of traffic. This can help to improve the customer experience and make it easier for employees to move around the building.


Revolving doors are typically built to last, with durable materials and mechanisms that are designed to withstand heavy usage. This makes them a cost-effective investment for businesses.


Revolving doors can also be equipped with accessibility features, such as additional automatic pass doors, for people with disabilities or mobility issues.

What security benefits do they provide?

Automatic revolving doors provide several security benefits, this includes controlled access, revolving doors can be outfitted with card readers or other forms of access control, making it easy to restrict entry to certain individuals. The revolving doors also make it more difficult for someone to enter the building without permission or to bring in or out any large or prohibited items. 

Overall, the revolving door has evolved from a simple rotating cylinder to a more advanced and functional design with improved safety and energy-saving features. Security is critical for businesses to protect their assets, comply with regulations, avoid liability, ensure employee safety, and ensure business continuity. 

With proper usage and maintenance, revolving doors can be considered a safe option for buildings, and we highly recommend it, to find out more about what revolving door will work best for your business, get in touch!

We use the best control equipment that ensures our doors are designed for maximum safety. Some of the equipment includes sensors for our automatic doors to detect if one or more people enter the same section of the revolving door at one time, and our manual revolving doors have speed control system to prevent the doors from being moved too fast. 

Businesses can also rest assured that each door is created by highly skilled staff and installed by qualified craftsmen.  

Appearance and features of the doors  

A revolving door provides business with a smooth flow of people going in and out of the building. Revolving doors look professional and serve as a welcoming structure to a building, all doors are available in a choice of different finished looks. Some of these being modern contemporary or traditional or even a twit between the two. We make our revolving doors in a range of colours including copper cladding, brass or aluminium so whatever your business colour schemes its likely we can find a colour for the door that complements the rest of the building well. All our glass revolving doors are available as a manual, power assisted or automatic functions.  

In addition, our crystal glass revolving door is designed and manufactured to fit the exact dimensions of your building. An all-glass look gives the door a sleeker appearance that also allows light to enter the building.   

Another noteworthy point is that now all our manual revolving glass doors are manufactured in Great Britain. This gives us the ability to offer quicker delivery times with competitive pricing, it also allows us to lower our carbon footprint.  

Our framed revolving doors feature a design you might be more familiar with. However, they still have the latest engineering design and are manufactured from the highest quality component parts to ensure they work reliably. One of the benefits to the framed doors in comparison to glass is that you can have a choice of frame and finished colours and optional overhead heaters. 

Power Assisted, Automatic or Manual revolving door 

When deciding between power assisted, auto or manual door you need to be thinking about what comes through your doors the most.  

For example, an airport will need to have a large revolving door with three wings to allow a good flow of people with luggage. So, with this in mind, when deciding what revolving door you want, you need to think about if you have a lot of deliveries come through and, are you likely to get a high volume of foot traffic at once. 

We offer doors powered by a variety of mechanisms, each work well for different businesses: 

Power Assisted: The door is powered by a motor that makes it much easier to walk through. This is helpful for accessibility. 

Automatic: The door automatically revolves when triggered by a motion sensor. This is the most accessible option and complies with all personal safety standards.

Manual: The standard revolving door, much more energy and cost-efficient. 

Number of wings: 

The number of wings your revolving door will have with vary with the size of door you wish to have, as well as the traffic you need to accommodate.  

Starting with two wings, this type of high-capacity revolving door does not have a centre shaft, therefore affording more space for wheelchairs or luggage trolleys. This also allows you to reflect more natural light into the building.  

Four wings are smaller, with more numerous compartments that allow more people to enter and exit at a much faster rate. They are useful for business centres and the leisure sector. 

Three wings are used for larger spaces. They are useful for allowing things such as suitcases, pushchairs and bikes to enter with ease. They are Great for the transport sector and businesses that need to prioritise accessibility.

First impressions count. When visitors enter your site, you want them to feel welcome and safe. Efficient entry and exit is a big plus. If they’re impressed by the aesthetics of your site, that’s a bonus too. Why do we mention these things? Because revolving doors achieve all of them!

You might be surprised by how much variety there is to revolving doors. We want to help you understand the options, so you end up with the solution you need.

We think we’re well placed to guide you through this. Here at EA, we’re one of the UK’s market leaders in revolving doors. Over the years we’ve provided revolving doors of all types and sizes to a huge range of organisations, from residential properties to corporate HQs to airports.  

Every business has its own unique needs when it comes to revolving doors. That’s why we offer such a range. We’ll walk you through some of these here. But first, we’ll answer a burning question …

What’s the benefit of revolving doors?

1.     Aesthetics

Revolving doors just look impressive and project an image of professionalism success. Maybe it’s their association with luxury hotels and corporate HQs?

2.     People flow

Whenever you’re choosing a door for a building, one of the biggest considerations is what we call people flow. What is people flow? It’s simply how people move within and between buildings. Think traffic, but on-foot and in buildings. As with traffic flow, good people flow means free movement, but at a safe and orderly speed.

This brings us to revolving doors. They are truly superb for people flow. Not only do they allow more efficient, high-volume entry and exit. They also keep speeds and flow safe, creating a natural one-way system.  

3.     Energy efficiency

Did you know that revolving doors are great for energy efficiency and temperature preservation? That’s because they create a seal, which keeps conditioned air in and outside air out.

4.     Security

Revolving doors also offer security benefits, because they allow your CCTV to capture clear footage of everyone who enters your site. That’s thanks to their orderly management of people flow. We can optionally add sliding security doors over the front of your revolving doors at night.

So those are some of the benefits. What about different types of revolving doors? That’s what we’ll showcase next.

Automatic or manual revolving doors – what’s best?

One big consideration is whether you want automatic or manual revolving doors. Each has its advantages. Manual doors are a more affordable option, but from EA they’re still the highest quality. We can also provide speed control to reduce the risk of accidents. 

Automatic revolving doors offer that little bit more luxury. Their safe, hands-free operation also adds convenience. This is why they’re often a preference for five-star hotels and major corporates. We offer these in a range of stylings to match your building and aesthetic preferences.

Who’s using your revolving doors?

This is another big question that may determine your choice. Manual doors are a reliable, affordable option. But what if some users don’t have the strength to operate it?

Our power-assisted doors could be the answer here. They’re an excellent compromise in price and operation between manual and automatic doors. The user stars by pushing. As soon as they stop, the door “takes over” at a gentle, safe speed.

This is great for locations where accessibility is a concern, like care homes and healthcare settings. Power-assisted revolving doors are also great at sites that cater for people with a wide range of ages and physical conditions, like transport hubs and retail.

What capacity do you need for revolving doors?

Another big consideration is capacity. Basic revolving doors are great for single-person entry. But what if that’s too slow for the footfall your site sees? Or what if people are regularly carrying large and heavy items through? If they can’t fit those in, you’ve got a problem.

Our high-capacity automatic doors are designed with larger compartments to offer more space. This makes them great for sites with a very high footfall, simply because more people can enter and exit at a time. We have also installed these at airports and busy hotels, because they allow you to carry bulky luggage.

What finishes are available for revolving doors?

Aesthetics matter. Any public-facing part of your business has to look right and project the image you want people to see. Your doors are no exception, and that’s why we offer multiple different stylings. This enables us to match the aesthetics of your site.

For instance, in corporate environments and offices we often install all-glass revolving doors. These are a great match for all-glass buildings, and let in plenty of natural light. That’s in addition to a whole host of other finishes, from ultra-modern to traditional.

Revolving doors are arguably the most visually impressive entrance that most businesses can access. Their association with luxury hotels and large enterprises makes them a popular choice, as does their modern and sleek appearance.

It’s this association with executives and the high life that might lead many businesses to overpay on their revolving doors, or choose a solution that doesn’t work for them based on price. At EA Group we’re helping businesses of all sizes to access these fantastic solutions in a way that actually works for them.

Our team here at EA Group all share a passion for detail and innovative solutions. In today’s blog we’ll cover the qualities that you need to look for when choosing a revolving door and how finding one that can make a real difference for your business might not be as difficult as you might think.

How many revolving doors do I need?

This naturally depends on the size of your building and flow of pedestrians. A typical 3-wing revolving door allows 24 people to enter and 24 people to exit within one minute, which adds to a total of 48 people per minute. If you’re expecting more than that number, you need more doors!

What kind of revolving doors are available?

In terms of size and finish you have a lot of options when working with EA Group. All our doors are designed by our team of experts here at EA. This means we’ll always strive to meet your exact specification in terms of the size and appearance of your door and recommend any changes that could be made.

In terms of the types of doors available, our most popular are the all-glass models. These stunning doors refract, reflect and diffuse light in and out of your premise, creating a bright and welcoming entrance. We manufacture these doors bespoke in size increments of one millimetre, so they fit your precise specifications. They are constructed almost entirely from glass or can have a thin metal frame if you prefer.

Other options include manual revolving doors which are a stylish solution for traditional style buildings. We also offer doors with larger frames to create a great entrance for sites with more challenging architecture.

Are revolving doors energy efficient?

The short answer to this is yes! Especially considering soaring energy prices and environmental concerns, businesses need to look more closely about how we heat or cool our buildings. Revolving doors do a fantastic job at naturally keeping warm air inside and cool air out, and vice-versa in the summer.

With a revolving door, it’s physically impossible for it to be left ajar. This means that conditioned air doesn’t escape, and external air doesn’t enter. This is because at least two of the door’s revolving wings will be touching the wall at any time, creating a seal as the door revolves.

This means that when you consider investing in a revolving door, you should consider the outlay alongside its potential energy savings.

How can revolving doors be made more accessible?

Accessibility is incredibly important to any business or organisation. You need to ensure that people with all levels of mobility can reliably access your building. The best entrances ensure that anyone can get to where they need to go quickly.

We can offer extra-wide revolving doors that do not feature a centre shaft. This provides much easier access for wheelchairs and other mobility aids. We usually provide this style of door for airports, where moving through with luggage trolleys is a necessity.

For extra accessibility, we can also offer automatic sliding doors alongside our revolving doors. These provide a range of options for entry, without compromising the aesthetic quality of your entrance.

What businesses need revolving doors?

There are some industries more associated with revolving doors than others. Hotels, airports, and business centres immediately spring to mind. The truth is, however, that if you need a professional entrance and a contemporary appearance, they can work for just about any site. We’ve provided doors for all the sectors mentioned above, but also for the education, leisure and residential properties.

In terms of aesthetics, we’re guided by you. Not only can you customise the number of wings that your door has, but you can also customise its finish. Our revolving doors are available in a choice of stainless steel (brushed or polished), brass or bronze finishes. We can even offer copper cladding, or your choice of anodised colour finishes.

What are the alternatives to revolving doors?

If you’ve read this blog and started considering other options, we can help. Our automatic sliding doors are incredibly popular, and can be customised to the same degree as the revolving models.

A revolving door is a brilliant way to create both a stunning visual presence and a smoother way for visitors and staff to enter your premises. Revolving doors have a number of benefits over more traditional entry solutions.

Revolving doors are the ideal entry solution for the current environment where controlled entry is just as important as easy entry. Not only are they stylish but are also energy efficient which allows you to maintain a comfortable environment within your business. With a revolving door, it’s difficult for conditioned air to be let out and outside air to be let in. They are also ideal for creating a one-way-system throughout your business.

At EA Group we can offer businesses a wide range of revolving doors, each suiting a different environment. We know it can be difficult to know which specific solution is right for your business, which is why we’ve created today’s blog. Here we’ll cover some of the major requirements that businesses have from their revolving door, and which door is right for you.

Create a great visual impact

We know that one of the main reasons behind installing any new entry solution is their visual appeal. Especially for business centres, commercial spaces and anywhere to do with professional services, your business needs to have a great first impression. A revolving door provides that with a grand appearance that will keep its impressive visual impact for years to come.

In terms of which door creates the best visual impression, it depends on the appearance of your building. Our all glass revolving doors are some of the most popular available today and for good reason. Not only does the glass provide an ultra-modern appearance, but it also lets the most light into your building, creating a more appealing visual inside and out.

Accommodate varying levels of traffic

Revolving doors are used by a wide variety of different industries. Many of these, including the transportation sector require a solution that can allow many people to access your premise in a safe and organised way. High-capacity revolving doors are the perfect solution here.

One of the first things you need to consider when choosing a revolving door is the capacity it will have to support. Our standard capacity doors, such as the all glass solutions we mentioned earlier can support roughly up to 38 people a minute per door. If you require a higher capacity, we recommend installing multiple doors, or considering one of our high-capacity revolving doors. These two wing doors allow for an even higher flow of people. These solutions are ideal for airports, stations and indoor event venues.

This should also inform your decision on the number of wings you choose for your revolving door. To allow for a more comfortable entry experience a three-wing door is perfect.

Create a more accessible entrance

It’s important to accommodate all people when creating an entrance for your business. Our revolving doors can be customised and augmented to create a safe and convenient entrance for anyone.

Alongside manual revolving doors we can also include systems with power assisted drives that require minimal physical force to operate. We can also install automatic sliding doors alongside manual ones, both created bespoke to fit your entrance to the millimetre. This allows wheelchair users and those with other accessibility needs to access your premise with ease, without sacrificing the visual appeal of your entrance.

Despite the accessibility of our entrance solutions, we never fall short on security. Our revolving doors can integrate seamlessly alongside access control solutions and our expert team can advise on how your entrance solution can work alongside CCTV.

Our framed revolving doors can also be equipped with manual night sliding security doors and panic breakout options to further improve security.

Create a comfortable and inviting environment

A revolving door’s job doesn’t end once a visitor has passed through them. They provide just as much impact to the interior of your space as they do to the outside. One of the main purposes of a revolving door is to be energy efficient. This is naturally best achieved with one of our manual revolving doors, but they can also reduce your heating bill.

Using a four-wing revolving door reduces the amount of outside air allowed in to your premise. This means that less conditioned air from inside can escape, creating a much more comfortable internal temperature for a fraction of the cost. Many of our revolving doors are also designed and Made in Britain. This reduces their carbon footprint from manufacture to installation and means that any maintenance or replacement parts can be provided very quickly.

Since 1984 we have had the pleasure of installing and integrating high quality automation products across the UK. For more information about any of the solutions mentioned here, get in touch at +44 (0) 1372 459536

Since the pandemic, many businesses are looking at their pedestrian access differently. There needs to be a focus on making sure that no matter your industry, staff and customers can get inside safely and securely whilst feeling comfortable. With footfall traffic on the rise again, now’s the perfect time to introduce a solution that can make your business reliably accessible for years to come. This is where revolving doors can help.

Revolving doors provide a unique level of versatility when compared to other entry points. They can help you maximise space efficiency in your entryway while allowing you to better manage the flow of traffic into your premises. At EA Group, we pride ourselves on providing entry solutions that match the needs and the aesthetic of your business. Our revolving doors, including all-glass and high capacity models are some of the key solutions that allow us to do this. Here’s a few of the industries in which they can help.

Professional Services – Create the perfect welcome

Revolving doors are ideal for creating a warm welcome, literally! Due to the way that they are always simultaneously open and closed, there is a separation of the indoor and outside air. This is ideal for both summer and winter and allows everyone to be met with a sense of comfort when they enter your business.

Presentation is vital for many professional services. This is often communicated through your branding, the technology you use and the level of service provided. A revolving door, whether manual or automatic, framed or all-glass provides a clean and highly professional appearance. Revolving doors also naturally limit foot traffic to ensure that people always enter in a safe and relaxed manner, allowing your staff to always provide the right welcome.

Retail – Maximise space and safety

Once again managing pedestrian traffic has to be a focus of businesses in the retail sector. Since the start of the pandemic, it’s crucial to know exactly how many people are within your premise at any one time. This can also in some circumstances include screening details about them. Revolving doors allow you to manage this entry process while maximising the available floor space.

In terms of safety, revolving doors allow you to limit the number of visitors entering your premise at any one time. Combined with a thermal CCTV solution, you can even test skin temperature on entry to better protect your guests and customers. The design of a revolving door allows you to create a one-way-system, even if you don’t have designated entrances or exits, as the same revolving door can be used for both purposes.

Revolving doors are the perfect way to create an efficient entry solution, that guides pedestrian traffic around your premises in an organised and secure way for both them and your staff.

Airports & Stations – Support your capacity needs

With passengers once again returning to airports and busy city stations, it’s vital that these sites can improve both traffic flow efficiency and the travel experience. Congestion needs to be alleviated wherever possible and revolving doors provide a great way to limit queues in a comfortable and visually appealing way. At EA Group we can provide high-capacity, full height gates that allow guests and their belongings an easy way to enter and exit your premises. Full-capacity solutions do not have a centre shaft, allowing space for pushchairs, wheelchairs or luggage trolleys.

Once again there is a cost benefit here too, as the cost of heating or cooling your premises is greatly reduced by the revolving door’s environmental separation. Our full-height solutions also allow reflective light into your building, creating a more appealing entrance.

Healthcare & Education – Improved access and security

Organisations in the healthcare and education sector need to be able to manage high footfall areas effectively. Revolving doors allow you to guarantee that all visitors, patients or students have left and entered in an organised and secure way. Not only are our high-capacity entranceways accessible for all, but they can be augmented with custom built sliding doors for added accessibility.

Our revolving doors are also rigorously tested to meet the highest security standards. Our security solutions range from doors that can integrate with access control services; ideal for schools, all the way up to bulletproof glass for high security sites. We also offer a range of security systems that can be installed alongside your entranceway for added peace of mind.

EA Group are the UK’s leading provider of entrance solutions. All our entranceways are tailored to your businesses’ specific dimensions and requirements, giving you an entrance that remains efficient and aesthetically pleasing for years to come.

More often than not, when wanting to install new revolving doors at the entrance to a commercial property, many will assume that they only have two options available; manual revolving doors and automatic revolving doors. However, this isn’t the case and there is another option that is always worthwhile considering; power assisted revolving doors.


As the name suggests, these doors are designed to assist the user but they aren’t fully automatic. So, similarly to a manual door, users will need to push the door to start it moving, however, once the door senses manual operation, the power assist gently takes over and it will power the door to reach its self-parking position where it will stop and be ready for the next user. It really is considered to be a happy medium between manual and automatic doors.


If you’re currently contemplating which type of revolving doors you should install at your commercial property, below is a list of benefits to opting for power assisted doors.


Incredibly energy-efficient

Revolving doors are known for being more energy-efficient than other automatic door options available, such as sliding doors, because they make it much easier to maintain the desired temperature inside a building, but power assisted doors are even more energy-efficient. Due to the fact that they aren’t fully automatic and they only require a minimal amount of electrical power to self-park, they use much less energy than fully automatic revolving doors.


More affordable than automatic doors

Not only will power assisted revolving doors help you to save on your energy bills and have reduced running costs when compared to automatic doors, but they also have a more affordable up-front cost too. Power assisted doors sit in between the standard manual and fully automatic revolving door price bracket and their costs make them a very attractive choice. Once people know the savings they can make, they tend to choose these doors over fully automatic doors.


Effective in smoothing people flow

Power assisted revolving doors are just as capable as any other type of revolving door in smoothing the flow of people in and out of a building. Of course, only so many people can use a revolving door at once and power assisted door mechanisms are usually fitted with a speed limiter too. So, you can trust that these doors will always rotate as a comfortable pace and they can’t be pushed at excessive speed, which also makes them an incredibly safe option too.


Undeniably aesthetically pleasing

Many favour revolving doors over the other entrance solutions available to them because they are aesthetically pleasing and thankfully, opting for power assisted doors won’t hinder their appearance. Power assist drive units can be configurable for both frameless and framed revolving doors, three or four-wing configurations and the doors can be brushed or polished stainless steel or any RAL colour. So, they can perfectly complement your building’s aesthetics.


Straightforward and virtually effortless to use

Power assisted revolving doors are intuitive for users and they won’t cause any confusion when people are wanting to enter or exit your building. Their drive mechanism also ensures that very minimal physical exertion is required to manually rotate the door from its stationary parked position, meaning that they will be virtually effortless for the vast majority of users. Due to the fact that they self park ready for the next user, they are always easy to get into as well.


Installing power assisted doors at your commercial property

All in all, whilst there are advantages to both manual and automatic doors too, it is fair to say that the many benefits associated with power assisted doors makes them a main contender for most revolving door projects. It is highly likely that a power assisted revolving door will be able to meet all of your requirements and as mentioned above, they will be the most cost-effective and energy-effective solution available to you.
