Wind Load Construction for Service and Insulated Coiling Doors & Fire Rated Doors

Quick Guide to the 2014 Florida Building Code

Meeting today's wind load requirements for rolling steel coiling doors is no longer just about picking wind speed. Numerous factors must be considered in order to correctly specify the psf that a door needs to withstand. Test or design load, mean roof height, door location and roof slope are just a few of the critical criteria.

These factors may be confusing, but Cornell is ready to help translate these requirements and provide the right product to meet your project's wind load demands. As proven, Cornell's exclusive software can analyze the required psf and product specifications to automatically configure your equipment needs.

Cornell also leads the industry with an onsite test chamber to provide proof of wind load performance on their innovative designs. Plus, Cornell's full time Engineering Services staff is dedicated to providing application assistance for all of their closure products.
