CrossingGard® Emergency Response Grille

Model ERG-IBC for Security and Access Controlled Egress
per the IBC®

CrossingGard is the only code compliant Emergency Response Grille designed to help address both security and safety issues in public areas. CrossingGard provides the security
of a locked, rolling grille but immediately responds in an emergency situation to fully open automatically and allow safe escape. Available only from Cornell, the CrossingGard is always on duty to provide separation control, yet still allows access to an alternate means of escape.

CrossingGard® Application Guidelines:

CrossingGard® Emergency Response Service Doors

Access-controlled means of egress door for areas where greater levels of security without for airflow or visibility are needed, and access to egress is desired. Fail safe: when an alarm is sounded, power is lost or if an emergency exit push-button station is activated, the CrossingGard Door automatically opens for access to egress. When access-controlled egress is code required, please use the CrossingGard Grille above. Note that CrossingGard Doors are not yet ICC-ES evaluated.
