Architectural Revolving Doors

The history of the revolving door dates back to 1888 when the first U.S. patent was granted to Theophilus Van Kannel in Philadelphia.  In 1889, the first wooden revolving door was installed at Rector’s restaurant in Manhattan on Times Square.  Today, thousands of revolving doors are in operation around the world, in virtually every market and building type with benefits that include aesthetics, energy efficiency, noise dampening, improved space utilization, reduction in outdoor pollution, safety, and security.
