Facilities that house art or that host entertainment events have various needs for security and closure solutions. Balancing property protection while allowing appropriate egress of occupants is a key concern, as is preventing unwanted access to areas after hours. Cookson offers numerous products that can meet these application requirements. Learn more about common product applications in Arts & Entertainment Facilities below.

Concessions
Concessions

The most common application for concession areas and food courts is a Counter Door at a food serving station. Be sure to consider requirements for fire rated countertops wherever fire rated counter doors are required. Counter Grilles also provide access control while allowing visibility.

Corridors

The right product for corridors must provide security and separation control from public areas. However, there must also be a consideration for safety and egress to allow for alternate means of escape should a fire, public disturbance or other emergency situation arise. The ACE Emergency Response Grille addresses both security and egress, immediately responding in an emergency situation by automatically opening and allowing for safe escape.  Other options are our Rolling Grilles and our Side Folding Grilles and Closures.
