Transportation and Recreation

Cookson offers multiple products that can address the various needs of a Transportation or Aviation facility. Here you'll find common applications of Cookson products and supporting information to help you provide the right solution for your project needs.


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.

Transportation and aviation facilities manage large amount of inventory and supplies, creating busy receiving areas. Cookson's Service Doors offer reliability and durability for this common product application. Insulated Service Doors provide the security of a rolling steel door with the added benefit of helping to maintain climate control.

Frequent access demands closure products that offer higher cycle life and performance reliability. Opening and closing speed is often another common need for any closure product at the entrance or exit of a parking facility. These needs must be addressed all while providing security for the facility to prevent unwanted access. Cookson offers its CYCLE-MASTER 1024 Performance Door to address high speed, high cycle opportunities. Also available are CYCLE-MASTER Grilles, offering 100K or 300K life cycles.
