California Proposition 65 Warning

Proposition 65 is a California law that applies to any products sold in California. The official name of Proposition 65 is the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals.


Proposition 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list, which must be updated at least once a year, has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals since it was first published in 1987. For the current list, please visit https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/.


A Proposition 65 warning means one of two things: (1) the business has evaluated the exposure and has concluded that it exceeds the "no significant risk level"; or (2) the business has chosen to provide a warning simply based on its knowledge about the presence of a listed chemical without attempting to evaluate the exposure.” (source: https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/)


Wind Corporation (DBA/ Wind Hardware), Zephyr Lock, LLC and Zephyr Fluid Solutions, LLC (collectively “The Wind Group”) have chosen to provide a warning based on its knowledge about the presence of one or more listed chemicals without attempting to evaluate the level of exposure. Products marketed or sold by The Wind Group including, but not limited to, hardware components, locker/cabinet locks and products manufactured to customer specification may contain brass, nickel or chromium. These products may contain listed chemicals at levels that are below the Proposition 65 level of concern, or could even be zero. However, out of an abundance of caution, The Wind Group has elected to place the Proposition 65 warning notification on all its products.


Listed Chemical Present or Potentially Present in The Wind Group Products

Lead and lead compounds

Nickel (Metallic)

Nickel compounds

Chromium (hexavalent compounds)


The following warning label is to be used if The Wind Group products are subsequently repackaged or sold in the State of California.
