Galvanex® Ultra™ and
SpectraShield® Ultra Powder Coat Finish For Security Doors
by CornellCookson

New finish upgrades by CornellCookson provide a protective top layer for rolling security doors, to help prevent finish deterioration and increase the curtain’s protection against a corrosive environment. Both Galvanex Ultra and SpectraShield Ultra Powder Coat Finish aid in keeping a protective closure looking like the day it was installed, despite a high cycle volume.

As polyester-based, textured, and wear-resistant clear coat finishes, Galvanex Ultra and SpectraShield Ultra provide increased resistance to corrosion and improved durability against deteriorations and marring of the curtain, during regular use.

CornellCooksonGalvanex Ultra is an exclusive, dual coat finish applied to steel curtains, available in gray, tan, white, or brown. SpectraShield Ultra is an environmentally friendly, powder coat finish for steel or aluminum.

Engineered to be aesthetically pleasing, the new finishes feature a five-year warranty against fading, cracking, blistering, flaking or peeling, as well as a 2-year or 50,000 cycles warranty against normal abrasion and scratching.

ASSA ABLOY’s Architectural Door Accessories group has released a series of hands-free door opening solutions to reduce the number of skin-to-surface touchpoints people meet throughout the day. Rockwood arm and foot pulls are easy-to-install, cost-effective options for hands-free door operation in new or pre-existing openings, which has become a major consideration for everyone to minimize the spread of germs and bacteria.
