Revolving doors allow better control of interior environments and are energy efficient as they prevent drafts (via acting as an Airlock), preventing increases in the heating or cooling required for the building unlike other types of Automatic door where the doorway is completely open when in use. Usually seen on larger buildings where this prevention is larger.

Tall building design requires some sort of draft block, such as revolving doors, to prevent the tall structure from creating a wind tunnel type effect by sucking in air at high speed at the base and ejecting it through vents in the roof while the building is being heated, or sucking in air through the vents and ejecting it through the doors while being cooled.

Revolving doors are suitable for high volume traffic but All Revolving doors must have breakout.

Most revolving doors are 3 or 4 Leafs and depending on the model can accommodate display cabinets within or an Automatic sliding door.

Revolving doors are commonly seen with a single Automatic swing door beside them for easy Wheel chair access.

Revolving doors are also seen as a prestigious entranceway, partly because of the cost of installation and partly the aesthetics of the door.

Revolving doors are commonly seen in aluminium with a powder coated finish, glass and stainless steel.

Revolving doors like any Automatic door require regular maintenance at least every 6 months (please consult the manufacturer) and an annual BSEN16005 assessment.

Revolving doors san also be used as secured entrances allowing just a single user access under controlled environments.
