Janus Series 1000 Features

Model 1000 Door

The bar has once again been raised with the Series 1000 commercial door. The Pre-Assembled Industrial Door (PAID) features the traditional dependability and sturdiness of a commercial door, while significantly saving time and money during installation.  How?  The push up operation comes with brackets and tensioner pre-assembled.  The reduced drive chain hoist operation is delivered with brackets, tensioner, gears and chain drive pre-assembled on the door.  In addition, door and guides install to jamb as a single assembly.  Pre-assembly from the factory means less time spent on installation, therefore saving you money.  Backed by a one year warranty, our PAID Model 1000 is a solid and economical investment for commercial/industrial usage.



Nylon Stripping

Tough, durable, wide, heavy-duty nylon stripping controls curtain stretch and works in conjunction with the vinyl guide strip to reduce wear and deaden sound.


Slide Lock

The slide bolt assembly affixed to the bottom bar at each end of the door curtain fastens through the guide to securely keep the door locked and in the down position.  Padlocks can be attached to the side to further secure the door.  Bulb astragal is standard on all doors.

Door Stop

The flat door stop slide makes installation quicker.  Simply slide through the holder on the guide and affix with a fastener. 

9-1/2 Diameter Drum

9-1/2" diameter drums allow for lower headroom requirements.  An enclosed barrel houses the dead axle assembly and protects the factory-lubricated springs from direct contact with environment elements.  The inherent strength provided by the spiral barrel minimizes axle deflection, providing smoother operation.  Because the curtain is attached by screws and not seamed to the barrel, cost-effective replacement of either independent assembly is quick and easy.

Door Stops

Grease-filled, shielded radial ball bearings at the drums provide longevity and smooth operation.  Drums are embossed for rigidity. 

Door Latch

The ratchet tensioning device supplied as standard equipment on the door offers a simpler method of tensioning, while more accurately fine tuning all the springs on the door at the same time.  There is no extra hardware required.  Eight different positions on the tension wheel allow one to perfectly balance the door every time.  There are no pins required to hold the tension on the spring.  You simply just click it.

Door Curtain

The 26 gauge corrugated door curtain is manufactured from full hard galvanized grade 80 steel and coated with Super Durable polyester paint that is backed by a 40 year film integrity and 25 year no-fade limited paint warranty. Available in sizes 
up to 10’0” x 10’0” and in over 20 different standard colors.  Click here to view the color chart.

4:1 Reduced Drive Chain Hoist


A 4:1 reduced chain hoist offers smoother operation on doors over 10'0" wide or 10'0" tall.  Chain hoist comes pre-assembled on the door.

Reinforced Bracket

Factory-intalled galvanized reinforced 12 gauge brackets are designed to easily snap on the the guides, reducing installation time.

Roll-A-Matic Electric Operator

Roll-a-matic electric operators are internally enclosed in the barrel to provide quiet and reliable operation.  The operator's design is compatible with transmitters and receivers, pneumatic sensing edges and other electric operation accessories.  Right side operation only.  Auxiliary operator hand chain not available.


Insulation is made of a foil-backed, dual-layer polyethylene air-bubble insulation secured in place with a strong adhesive and joined by mylar film to provide an R value of 4 (top draft stop and side draft stops are also included in the insulation package).  Series 1000i only.

Header Seal

Top draft stop (not shown) mounts directly to the door curtain and provides a 2-3/4" weather seal between the door and the header.

The header seal (shown here) attaches directly to the header and extends up to 5" to the door curtain to form an effective barrier from environmental elements.

Three Manufacturing facilities located throughout the United States and a team of experienced door experts are available to assist you with any of your door needs.  Janus offers a three year
warranty on workmanship and material.

Guide Details

Universal mount 2" deep 16 gauge galvanized steel guides require no pre-installation modifications for wood, steel, concrete or masonry block applications.  Guides have deeper engagement, which allows the curtain to stay in place under more sever wind conditions.
