Are you looking to boost your business's efficiency, productivity, and security? Consider upgrading your garage doors with wireless technology, advanced security features, durable finishes, and more.
Adding smart features to your commercial garage door can transform the way you do business. Smart technology is about making your door more intuitive, easier to operate and to monitor. Not to mention faster, safer, and more durable. These innovative upgrades marry form and function to ensure your business looks great and operates smoothly. From vibrant powder-coat finishes to high-speed precision doors, here are some ways to use Cornell’s smart technology to improve the way you do business.
You’re probably used to seeing a black, coiled wire if you have a commercial door. Even though this wire isn’t pretty, it’s necessary. Your coil cord is the wired connection between your door’s motor and its sensing edges. It’s what makes your door stop and reverse when there’s an obstacle. This cord operates on many doors, but you might find it cumbersome and unattractive.
A wireless safety edge takes that cable out of the picture. This nifty device sends a signal between a transmitter and a receiver, doing all of the work of the coil cord, but without the cord. The wireless safety edge kit and UL 325-2010 compliant are easy to install. It also has impressive battery life and an LED screen that displays error codes for easy troubleshooting.
Automatic Locking Features
You can find security grilles everywhere. They protect stores after hours, bars, patios, hallways, and parking garages. Overall, grilles can be pretty convenient. However, locking them can be another story. Most security grilles come with keyed locks, which means keeping track of keys and fumbling with locks. Who wants to do that when they’re closing up at the end of the day? An automatic electronic lock, like the Electronic AutoLock, locks your grille for you when it closes. The AutoLock works with the Extreme® MicroCoil® Grille – 500K Cycles and Extreme 300 Series High Performance Grille
The AutoLock pairs seamlessly with our APEX Controller. This intelligent system engages the lock when the grille is closed, maximizing security. The system has a user-friendly display that makes for effortless maintenance. Whether you want to secure your parking garage or want to keep vandals out of your store, automatic locking features are a must-have companion for your security grille.
