Press release date: February 16, 2011

(Temple, GA) Janus International has announced the introduction of a new nylon windlock certified wind load sheet door, Model 3652. Model 3652 was tested at the Orlando Certified Testing Laboratory, where it achieved a +36/-40 PSF design rating on a 12' wide sheet door, utilizing only three windlocks per sheet per side. Actual test pressures attained were even greater at +54/-60 PSF. "We far exceeded our anticipated pressure measures and those of other certified doors in the industry," states David Curtis, Janus International President. The nylon windlock will offer an easier installation process with a more forgiving guide set, as well as a smoother and quieter operation. Nylon windlocks also call for smaller guides and no separate windbar. "Other doors have required five windlocks to our three and achieved lesser certified pressures than the Model 3652," says Curtis. "This door will be of significant value to our customers in Florida, North Carolina, Texas and other wind load coded areas."

Janus International is a leading manufacturer of rolling doors for the self storage, commercial and industrial markets. Headquartered in Temple, GA, Janus has four U.S. facilities and joint ventures in the U.K. and Mexico. For more information on our products, visit
