Selection of revolving doors for health care facilities | Health Technical Advice
The purpose of this technical note (HTA-2020-006) is to provide guidance to health care facilities and design teams when considering the installation of a revolving door at their facilities.
Automatic revolving or rotating doors can be found in a variety of locations including many commercial and health care facilities. People entering and exiting buildings through revolving doors can be at risk of being struck, trapped, or injured.
Revolving doors pose a particular hazard to users who have mobility issues. A revolving door generally consists of two, three, or four doors (wings) that attach to a rotating vertical central shaft. They are designed to create greater energy efficiencies in buildings while allowing large numbers of people to pass through.
