Meeting today’s new 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.
