FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Janus International Confirms ADA Compliant Roll-Up Doors

 

(Temple, GA – November 26, 2014)  Janus International has confirmed that its self-storage roll-up doors meet ADA regulations. The ADA requires that self-storage roll-up doors must be tensioned at 5 lbs. maximum force as it pertains to the continuous application of force necessary to fully open a door. “We’ve conducted extensive testing to confirm that the normal tensioning of Janus roll-up doors meet ADA requirement,” states Ramey Jackson, vice president of sales. “Coupled with the ADA pull/signage kits we provide, our storage customers can feel secure that their roll-up doors and hallway systems are ADA-compliant.”   

 

Effective March 15, 2012, the ADA has mandated that self-storage facilities follow certain compliance procedures. Fines for non-compliance can be substantial, so all owners are urged to visit www.storagedisabilityproducts.com to understand current requirements.
