Does CURRIES have products that comply with a windload impact of 130mph?

The customer needs to supply the desired design pressure for each opening.  Our product is tested to a maximum design pressure.  The wind load is converted into a design pressure with adjustment factors for terrain, height above grade, importance factor, and opening location in the building.  These may affect the design pressure by a factor of 4. 

What is the difference between bonderizing & phosphatizing?

Bonderizing is a tradename for phosphatizing.  CURRIES uses specialized equipment to apply an iron phosphatizing coating to the steel to improve paint adhesion and increase rust resistance.
