SRG Global™ Redefines Active Grille Technology

Integrille™ active grille shutter system combines decorative grille features with fuel efficiency attributes, extending functionality Beyond the finish™

Warren, Mich., August 11, 2015

SRG Global™, a Guardian company, an engineering and manufacturing leader of high value coatings on plastics, subsystems and automotive grilles, has developed Integrille™. The system combines finish capability technology with efficient aerodynamic functionality---all solely integrated into the grille.

“The goal is to integrate the functional efficiency and performance our customers are looking for in an active grille shutter, without losing the key decorative aspect of the grille,” said Dave Prater, President and CEO of SRG Global. “Our more than 30-years of experience in grilles and their attachments well positioned us to take existing technology to the next level, which is especially appreciated by consumers’ pocketbooks.”

Integrille™ is available in both fully integrated and semi-integrated versions, with an estimated 20% weight reduction and 30% improvement of aerodynamic performance compared to nonintegrated systems. Additionally, the innovative manufacturing cell concept created for its assembly provides the production flexibility automakers are looking for globally. In the end, this technology will provide drivers improved gas mileage and the high end technology they are seeking. SRG Global estimates that by 2020, around 18% of the global market will have these types of systems.
