MicroCoil™ Compact Parking Garage Security Grille

High performance, fast speeds, extremely quiet and fits into 50% less headroom then other security grilles, MicroCoil has it all.

MicroCoil Compact Security Grille – The Ultimate Parking Gate System

Protecting and securing parking facility has become a lot easier and has completely new options. MicroCoil parking gates have exclusive patented curved nesting links that coil up into only 13” of headspace, 50% less space than any other coiling grille available. Performance was not sacrificed either, in fact, MicroCoil is engineered with a direct drive, springless shaft design, that requires no maintenance, other than routine checks, and no replacement parts for 300K cycles. The compact operator features a variable-frequency drive that ensures a so­ft start and stops - reducing wear and tear on both the grille and the operator while still quietly operates at fast speeds of up to 24 inches per second.

So why is MicroCoil such a big deal?

ADA compliance is made easy. Parking gate system openings average around 114 inches (9’6”) high, however, they must provide accessible parking spaces as required by the ADA Standards for Accessible Design which require a minimum of 98 inches to accommodate handicapped accessible vans. Until now, coiling parking lot gates needed 24 inches or more of headroom space for installation. With MicroCoil’s compact design, it can be installed in 13 inches, opening up many new parking garage gate opportunities. Furthermore, the ADA standards state the when a parking lot or parking facility restripes or alters the area in any way, it must comply with the newest standards.

Residential Installations

Typically when installing a parking gate system in a residential or office complex, the noise and vibrations especially during times of high traffic, would make the space directly above the parking lot gate less than ideal. MicroCoil’s patented nesting links are much wider than typical security grille links, so when they are on the grille curtain, the tube spacer is practically flush with the security grille’s rod, which doesn’t allow the security grille to walk. That significantly reduces vibrations and makes MicroCoil super quiet, the quietest commercial gate available. This makes residential installs especially appealing as installing directly under an office, apartment or any other occupied space, does not disturb the area above it, unlike most other parking lot gates on the market.
