Depending on the amount of traffic your revolving door will receive and the size of the design you require, costs can range from anywhere between £15,000 at the lower end to £50,000 at the higher end (especially if you opt for metals such as brass or stainless steel). This cost will usually cover the VAT and installation fees, but the final price will vary from supplier to supplier.
Note: Higher-end designs often come with a host of other features, such as metal and chemical detection systems, speed control, and various book fold and canopy aesthetics, so you’ll need to factor in what you want to include before agreeing on a final price.
Factors affecting revolving door prices
The main factors that affect the overall price of revolving doors include the following:
- Size of the door (three-winged, four-winged etc.)
- The chosen diameter (small, medium, large)
- The model and materials used (steel, glass, aluminium etc.)
- What site the door is being installed (business, residential, hospital, school etc.) and the safety regulations required for that area
- How many doors are needed for your property
Benefits of a revolving door
One of the main draws of a revolving door is how access-friendly they are. Due to their automation, they don’t require someone to manually open or close them, which is perfect for wheelchair users or those with mobility difficulties.
Believe it or not, but revolving doors are incredibly energy efficient – particularly for businesses. Due to the way they’re designed, revolving doors are closed even when they’re in use. Consequently, this stops the outside elements from getting in and forcing the heating system to crank up so it can regulate the temperature.
As only one or two people are able to stand side-by-side in one of the chamber segments, a revolving door naturally regulates traffic and ensures safety in regards to people coming and going from your property.
Do revolving doors require a lot of maintenance?
As with all automated equipment, you need to factor in the cost of maintenance. An inspection once a year is a good rule of thumb, while daily safety checks are good practice. These checks should include checking for damage, slip hazards and whether the push bars remain tight and secure.
Should I hire a professional to install my revolving door?
Absolutely. This is not a task you’re able to take on alone. To meet the required safety standards, we recommend hiring one of our experts to ensure a professional installation.
