The transfers of air driven by a revolving door connecting two rooms of initially different temperatures are investigated. The results of small-scale laboratory modelling show that a critical revolution rate exists for which transfers are maximal for a given combination of door geometry, revolution rate and temperature contrast. This critical revolution rate divides two possible transfer regimes for revolving doors. Potential implications of our findings to revolving door operation, to heat losses across the doorway and to ventilation driven by the door are discussed.
