CornellCookson And Clopay Launch Architect Portal For Overhead Doors And Security Grilles

Mountain Top, PA - CornellCookson, a supplier of closure products for commercial, industrial, institutional and retail applications, and Clopay, an overhead sectional door manufacturer, have launched an intuitive Architect Portal as a design support destination for those specifying commercial rolling doors, sectional doors and security grilles throughout North America.

“The Architect Portal assists the architect and design community by providing a valuable product resource,” said Siva Davuluri, Vice President of Marketing, CornellCookson. “It saves time by eliminating the task of searching several websites or requesting materials from individual contacts and product representatives. We’ve gathered all of our materials dedicated to commercial door specification into one centralized location.”

Time-Saving Design And Technical Support

One of the most valuable aspects of the portal is a direct connection to the experts: a knowledgeable Architectural Design Support team, in-house technical experts, and product representatives. With the click of a mouse, architects and designers can gain design insight and critical architectural problem-solving support based on more than 100 years of combined building industry experience. Reaching out to this network is simple – click “Technical Questions” in the portal’s main menu and ask a question.

Supporting Documents for a Vast Product Library in One Convenient Place

The new platform also allows designers and specifiers to easily locate and download essential documents, such as data sheets, specifications, and BIM models for Cornell, Cookson and Clopay products.

Drawings On Demand

For specifiers who need to know exactly how a door will fit in a designated space, a Rolling Door Drawing Generator is available under the “Download Library” tab, found in the portal’s main menu. This feature allows users to select a product from a scroll-down menu and choose options such as manual or motorized operation or locking mechanisms. Users enter project information such as the building opening’s size, wall construction material and guide mounting. The Drawing Generator takes this information and produces AutoCAD drawings showing exact door clearances as well as mounting and wall details. A private link to custom drawings is emailed to the user from the Drawing Generator.

Diversity Of Offerings

The diversity of the two companies — Clopay Corporation and CornellCookson — means architects and specifiers will be able to satisfy a broad range of needs through the new portal. Clopay Corporation was founded in 1964 and is one of the largest manufacturers and marketers of garage doors and rolling steel doors in North America. Its brands, Clopay, Ideal and Holmes, are sold through leading home center retail chains and a network of over 2,500 independent professional dealers. CornellCookson, which is a division of Clopay, is a leading producer of rolling doors and grilles used at stadiums, distribution facilities, hospitals, hotels and museums, as well as a variety of other facilities where reliability, security and life safety is vital. Its products are available through a worldwide network of more than 700 professional dealers.
