New Visionaire® MicroCoil® Grille Ultra-slim curtain reduces headroom requirement, providing specifiers aesthetically pleasing rolling grille options for a variety of new applications.

CornellCookson, a leader in closure products for commercial, industrial, institutional and retail applications, and a Platinum Award Winner in the 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program, is pleased to announce their expanding the company’s security grille product line featuring award-winning curtain technology.

The patented, ultra-slim profile of the new Visionaire® MicroCoil® Grille requires nearly 30% less headroom than standard industry grilles, and the curtain coils tightly and efficiently, providing a security solution for facilities with low headroom.

Previously only available in high performance construction, this technology is now available in standard-cycle, standard-speed rolling grilles.

“By expanding the availability of MicroCoil ® in a standard-cycle, standard-speed rolling grille, we are able to provide architects, designers and facility managers with a new range of security options for small spaces and retrofit projects,” explains Siva Davuluri, Vice President of Marketing, CornellCookson.

“It is well suited for schools, urban retail applications, older buildings and structures that cannot utilize a standard size operating grille due to headroom and clearance restraints, or any structure that cannot be heavily altered,” he added.

A Plethora of New Applications

A major benefit of broadening the availability of MicroCoil® is its patented combination of technology, durability and aesthetics.

The Visionaire® MicroCoil® Grille provides space-saving performance for facilities that do not require the speed and operation of high-performance rolling grilles.

“While our Extreme High Performance MicroCoil® Grille is a boon for busy parking facilities around the country, there are a number of retail and mixed-use applications that can benefit from low headroom coiling grilles that complement the building, while providing protection and security,” said Heather Bender, Strategic Marketing Manager, CornellCookson.

“In major cities around the country, historic buildings are often occupied by luxury retailers and high-end boutiques,” added Jason Millard, Architectural Design Support – Project Manager, CornellCookson.

“Whether you’re in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia or Chicago, these spaces often have low headroom, and specifiers can’t change the physical structure and dimensions of the storefront.”

“In order to provide security, they have traditionally relied on scissor gates, but now with Visionaire® MicroCoil® Grille, they have a compact, affordable option that is more robust, blends with the surrounding architecture and allows window shoppers to see merchandise after hours.”

Designed to Perform

Product engineers at CornellCookson made several modifications to standard grilles in order to accommodate the curtain for the Visionaire® MicroCoil® Grille.

“The secret of Visionaire® MicroCoil® Grilleis in the patented design of the curved links

The steel counter-balance coil shaft has been updated from a standard four-inch barrel to a more robust six-inch barrel, which allows the patented vertical chains to coil tightly and efficiently while providing a stiffer base to support the structure.

“The secret of Visionaire® MicroCoil® Grilleis in the patented design of the curved links,” explained Millard.

“The links increase in length as you move down the grille curtain. When the curtain retracts into \ the head unit, the increasingly longer links allow the grille to coil tightly and neatly stack into itself,” he added.

The unique link construction also significantly reduces noise and vibration during motor or manual operations, making it one of the quietest grilles in the industry.

The links are made of high-quality 304-gauge stainless steel and an easy-link repair system contributes to less maintenance, making repairs easy, and the Visionaire® MicroCoil® Grille can be specified in a wide range of heights—from 6’ to 14’.5”—and widths up to 26’.

Visionaire® MicroCoil® Grille is rated and warranted to 50,000 cycles and comes with the brand’s full suite of safety and aesthetic features, including photo eyes, light curtains and powder coated finishes.
