by Brianna Crandall — September 3, 2018 — Boon Edam, a global provider of security entrances and architectural revolving doors, recently announced that RagingWire Data Centers has installed Boon Edam’s Tourlock 180+90 security revolving doors as part of the integrated access systems that protect its data centers in Ashburn, Virginia, and Sacramento, California.
Founded in 2000, RagingWire was one of the first companies that helped to build the multibillion-dollar global data center colocation industry, says BoonEdam. Now, RagingWire is the North American data center platform within the portfolio of NTT Communications, which operates 140 data centers in 20 countries worldwide, reportedly making RagingWire one of the largest and most financially solid data center companies in the world.
Security doors as part of multilayer security system
RagingWire installed Tourlock security revolving doors at its Ashburn VA3 Data Center, which features 245,000 square feet of space and 16 megawatts of critical power, and its Sacramento CA3 Data Center, which is a 180,000-square-foot facility with 14 megawatts of critical power. VA3 and CA3 are part of RagingWire’s portfolio of 113 megawatts of critical information technology (IT) power spread across 1.5 million square feet of data center infrastructure in Ashburn, Northern California and Dallas, Texas.
Mark Borto, CEO of Boon Edam, remarked:
As the colocation data center of choice for some of the most demanding hyperscale cloud and enterprise companies, RagingWire is recognized as an industry leader in data center security and overall customer experience. We are proud to provide an important part of RagingWire’s sophisticated, multilayer, integrated security system.
Tailgating prevention with high efficiency
Boon Edam’s security revolving doors will provide efficient passage for hundreds of people daily at RagingWire’s data centers. The doors prevent piggybacking and tailgating during both entry and exit by using a combination of sensors to recognize shapes, size and volume in three dimensions, and then stopping the door when a violation occurs. The state-of-the-art system also generates an accurate picture of exactly who is in the building at all times.
Eddie Ankers, director of Corporate Security at RagingWire, stated:
Our customers expect our security entrances and anti-tailgating technologies to be extremely fast and accurate. By adding these doors to our defense-in-depth security strategy, we are providing the best possible protection system for our customers’ mission-critical equipment.
In addition to Boon Edam’s Tourlock security revolving doors, RagingWire’s layered security approach features highly trained, 24×7 security staff, biometric scanners, badge readers, intelligent high-definition video cameras that analyze suspicious behavior, anti-tailgate mantraps, a building-within-a-building design, anti-climb perimeter fencing, concrete bollards in front of building entryways, and an anti-ram security gate.
