Parking Garage Security with Rolling Doors and Security Grilles

In parking garages, ensuring your entryways are secure is a very important task. While it may seem daunting to choose from all the security roll-up grilles in the industry, we’d like to offer our durable and customizable roll-up security doors and grilles for your consideration.

Entryway security in parking garages is crucial. Help assure occupants that they—and their vehicles—are safe and well taken care of through safety measures such as cameras, keycard entry, and security rolling doors and grilles.

At Cookson, we can assist with security rolling door and grille benefits such as:

  • A fast opening and closing speed (often three times quicker than other standard rolling doors and grilles),
  • Custom-made exactly for your opening,
  • A quieter operation as compared to other standard doors and grilles,
  • The ability to keep traffic moving swiftly throughout the garage with consideration given to peak and overall cycles,
  • Bringing more airflow and visibility to your garage entrance, and
  • A security grille or door that also looks great

Safety All Day, Every Day

Secure your parking garage with closures you can count on. Whether your garage caters to commercial retail, apartment, or any other space, a custom-manufactured security closure from Cookson can be of assistance. Because we manufacture your door or grille to your new construction or already built application specification, fitting and installing your closure is an easier process.

When you’re looking to hinder uninvited guests’ entry attempts and keep people who use the garage and their vehicles safe, a security rolling closure, like Cookson’s doors and grilles, can help. If your garage operates at all hours or after most other retail locations are closed, the addition of a roll-up security door or grille can be an extra tool in your toolbox for facility and property safety.

Safety Gates and Security Doors for Parking Facilities


Parking Entrance and Exit Solutions

Parking facilities often require secure closure solutions that can stand up to frequent cycles as drivers enter and exit.  In these cases, you’re looking for a door that meets the three H’s – high speed, high cycle and headroom. Other times, overnight security is paramount and you need a door that will only cycle once per day but is extremely secure.  Guest or resident comfort may also play a role in selecting a closure - you may want an insulated door to help regulate the temperature in the parking structure, especially in a colder climate.
