N

Superior workmanship

Janus International is the only manufacturer currently offering Third Generation doors, the most reliable, durable offering on the market. Dead axle design, harder steel, a tension adjust, radial ball bearings and superior paint processes are all standard features, not upgrades, with Janus.

N

Professional packaging

Janus avoids drum wheel dents and other damage by not stacking our mini doors during shipping. We individually suspend them in crates, which relieves pressure and helps assure your doors arrive in installation-ready form.

N

Safety

Our doors are equipped with hemmed edges on components and tubular bracing on swing doors for maximum safety.

N

Ease of installation

Our mini doors are shipped with the latch factory installed and the brackets pre-assembled to save time and money. In fact, self storage doors can be installed in less than three minutes!

N

Products that last

Doors must withstand a great deal of wear and tear, and replacing them is costly and time-consuming. Janus doors are constructed of grade 80 steel, which effectively combats the dents and damage you’ll find with other manufacturers.

Consult.

Create.

Construct.

That’s the Janus advantage.
