CornellCookson’s new EntryDefender is the only American-made rolling steel door that meets stringent U.S. Department of State standards for forced entry and ballistic resistance of structural systems.
Initially designed to protect American embassies around the globe, the EntryDefender is now available for businesses that need to protect sensitive buildings, including cannabis dispensaries and production facilities. The door can protect from attacks for up to 60 minutes, allowing architects, designers and other specifiers the flexibility to incorporate large openings into designs without compromising security and safety.
While it may look like a standard rolling door to thieves, the EntryDefender can absorb persistent, violent attacks. The robust steel curtain features interlocking slats that compress when in the closed position, creating a smooth surface and reducing potential pry points. As an attack persists, the interlocking slats engage and further prevent separation. The reinforced bottom bar and discreet locking system resists lifting force, making the EntryDefender nearly impossible to defeat.
It is available in a wide variety of colors and finishes and can also be specified in a CycleShield high cycle powder coating that offers significant abrasion protection.
