CornellCookson Introduces Two New Finish Upgrades

New finish upgrades by CornellCookson, a leader in closure products for commercial, industrial, institutional and retail applications, 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.
“The number of times a rolling door opens and closes not only affects the mechanics of the closure system,” said Nicole Vivalda, Senior Product Manager, CornellCookson. “Frequent cycling of the door also creates significant wear and tear on the finish. Without a protective top coating, the closure product is susceptible to environmental elements and scratching, decreasing the aesthetic longevity of the door.”
Improving Long-Lasting Aesthetics
Galvanex Ultra is an upgraded version of the company’s GalvaNex™ Finish, an exclusive, dual coat finish applied to steel curtains, available in gray, tan, white, or brown. SpectraShield Ultra is an upgrade of SpectraShield®—an environmentally friendly, powder coat finish for steel or aluminum—available in more than 180 RAL colors, as well as customized hues specified to match a facility’s unique style. These long wearing, upgraded Ultra finishes also are standard top coats for the company’s ImageMatch™ printed graphics.
Engineered to be aesthetically pleasing for years to come, the new finishes feature a 5-year warranty against fading, cracking, blistering, flaking or peeling, as well as a 2-year or 50,000 cycles warranty (whichever comes first) against normal abrasion and scratching.
