Better security for lower cost
This tough open style grille provides security while keeping the sense of open space. The LIGHT WAVE's sturdy construction is based on individual panels interlocked by full height hinge members. Hinge rods are completely concealed to protect them from vandalism and damage. The panels fold cleanly and positively, resulting in a smooth and easy to operate Grille.
The open concept of the door doubles in decreasing the overall door weight and increasing operation ease. As an option, LIGHT WAVES may be fabricated using steel reinforcing rods that further strengthen the grille curtain.
The LIGHT WAVE grille is a great choice for enclosing spaces that require good cross ventilation such as food court concessions. LIGHT WAVES are appropriate area dividers where strength and high visibility are needed; great for schools, sports complexes and public transit areas.
They are an ideal solution for behind glass protection, where a strong and resilient barrier is required.
