What kind of coiling door should I choose if I need airflow?
If you’re looking for coiling doors (also known as rolling doors) that allow airflow, you’re in the right place. CornellCookson’s rolling doors are available in a variety of options to give you the security of a rolling door with the airflow of a grille thanks to ScreenGard™ perforated slat doors.
ScreenGard doors are an ideal solution when you need to securely close off an opening but also require airflow for building ventilation. Retail or parking facilities may be applications where airflow needs are paramount. ScreenGard perforated slat doors are fully customizable to the amount of ventilation required and can allow for airflow on every slat or alternating slats for approximately 22% - 25% of open area.
What about enhanced visibility?
ScreenGard can help here, too. Instead of simply telling you how ScreenGard can improve visibility where you need it most, we’ll show you in a few photos below.
First, let’s get up close and personal with the slats themselves, shown here in steel (top photo) and aluminum (bottom photo).

Are there options that can satisfy my security, airflow, and visibility requirements?
With finish options in aluminum, galvanized steel, and dark anodized steel and a maximum size of 20’ 5” wide and 45’ 5” high, ScreenGard can help you with the challenges you face when designing for retail and other applications.
The ScreenGard perforated slat door is a hybrid option that combines the best parts of a rolling door and grille for optimum security, airflow, and visibility.
