The performance objective of a security grille is to provide an air pattern in the occupied space that is conducive to providing occupant comfort. It must achieve this while preventing the storage of contriband in the ventilation system, as well as access to ductwork, which is a means to injuring their own person or others. Many models have been developed in response to specific air distribution and security requirements. The application guidelines contained in this section are based on industry practices, laboratory test results and field experience. While designed for correctional facilities, these products are also excellent choices for rest stops, park facilities, schools, or sports venues where supervision is minimal and vandalism is a risk.
