“The SlideDriver II is the culmination of four decades of consistently reliable performance, combined with the latest technology of today,” explains John Allen, Sr. Product Manager, Gate & Barrier, for Nice North America.

CornellCookson Takes Platinum for Best Vehicle Security Entrance Control
American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, and now entering it’s Eighth Year, continues to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness – Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.
Best Vehicle Security Entrance Control
When you need security in an opening with limited vertical space, the Extreme High Performance MicroCoil® Grille – 500K Cycles is the answer.
Perfectly engineered to occupy the smallest amount of headroom on the market, this high-performance compact grille not only coils in nearly 50% less room than other security grilles but also provides higher performance, and engineered to handle at least 500,000 cycles (opens/closes) at speeds of up to 24” per second.
But, with the MicroCoil Grille, higher speeds do not mean you get a loud and clunky security grille, this low headroom parking security grille’s patented nested link system actually minimizes noise and vibrations – making it one of the quietest and smoothest coiling parking garage gates available today.

Best Fire & Safety System
Clopay Corporation (formerly CornellCookson and Cookson Doors), a leading rolling door and grille manufacturer has launched SmokeShield™ Fabric Smoke and Fire, one of the most versatile fire protection and smoke mitigation products on the market, designed to save lives and prevent property damage.
SmokeShield™ offers an innovative way to compart-mentalize open areas, to create a smoke and fire barrier with fire safety closures that enhance life safety by enclosing atrium areas, corridors, or other openings in fire barrier and smoke barrier walls.
Using SmokeShield™, fire and smoke are immediately compartmentalized to enable specifiers and building owners to limit deadly smoke migration, adding precious time to occupancy evacuation plans and minimizing property and inventory losses.
With one of the smallest footprints on the market, its lightweight fabric construction promotes practicality for restricted floor plans while being aesthetically pleasing. Exposed components are finished to match, complement, or contrast their surroundings with a custom powder coat finish, and the guides can be easily recessed into jambs and concealed by wood, masonry, sheetrock, or other fascia materials to make fasteners and shadow lines invisible.

The continually evolving ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program emphasized the trail of Accomplished Women in Leadership in 2022, as well as the Significance and Positive Impact of Advancing Diversity and Inclusion in our Next Generation of Government and Industry Leaders.

FDNY Chief Joseph Jardin honored the men and women of the FDNY, not only those who currently serve but all of those who have selflessly served, with a special recognition of those lost on 9/11.
Chief Jardin spoke about the continuing health battle of many following 9/11 with cancer and respiratory disease, yet now knowing the full consequences, would not have made a different decision to respond.
As Chief Jardin noted, mission-driven service is in the lifeblood of every firefighter, volunteer and sworn and has been so throughout the history of the Fire Service.
