173: HYDRAULIC RESIDENTIAL DOORS

1

I am looking to install a hydrolic system one piece door for a short 5' staircase. Its to swing up in order to access a storage space behind it. I am not sure of weight as of yet, as I will be ordering the staircase based on the Schweiss hydrolic Red Power system abilities. Please let me know what a simple hydrlic system for about 100-150 lbs can run me.

I'm looking for two residential Schweiss bifold garage doors, approx. 10'W x 8'H, suitable to have T-111 type wood siding on the outside surface. Can you give me some pricing and installer references?

i'm currently sourcing windows and bifold doors for a house remodel. your  Schweiss bi-fold door seems like they'd be a great fit however i'm wondering if the are a bit too beefy or industrial looking for a residential environment. do you scale down your extrusions based on the scale of the door? can you do a bi-fold window? i have two locations where i could possibly use a Schweiss bi-fold door/window: 1) r.o. 13'W x 12'H 2) r.o. 7'6"W x 4'H (window)

I am designing an addition to the house to shelter an Endless-Pool--and want the side wall to open entirely in summer, but closed in winter. Your bifold appeals, but this will be in a side wall and the eave drops down to a level only about 5 inches above bottom of header, so doubt there is space for the "wedge". Thus, it looks like the hydraulic door will be a better solution. Door will be sheathed with same wood-product siding as house, but I will want an openable window in it as well (for light and ventilation when door closed). The opening is only 12' wide, 60 inches high. Can you give me a rough ideas of cost (not a "quote" I'll hold you to).

To whom it may concern, I would like to have a quote for 2 door options, both bi-fold and hydraulic / one piece. The door is for a residential garage, and we intend to clad it with cedar siding. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I need a small 1 piece or a fold up door for my pool equipment which is in a recessed enclose. This is to prevent freezing in the winter. Yes it does get cold enough in Texas to freeze pipes. Doug

I am looking for a hydraulic door that can be used as a security door at night and an awning during the day. The current building is a wood framed garage with a 12 foot wide sliding glass door on the end wall. Panel siding (wood) covers the building(no stucco to contend with), 220 volts is available in the building. Panel siding would be used on the hydraulic door to match.

I have a typical 2 car garage with overhead doors and openers. I would like to gain the space taken up by the overhead tracks and doors. I've considered horizontal sliding barn-like doors. When I contacted one residential door company, their suggestion was roll up doors similar to those used commercially. Would your bifold or hydraulic doors provide a gain in interior space, while providing the convenience of remote door openers? How does the price compare to regular overhead residential doors?

30

I am evaluating doors for a residential project. Would like to get information on the use of a hydraulic door that is designed to hold glass. The idea is to maximize incoming light and also maximize the outside coverage when the door is up. Would appreciate any feedback, direction you can give me. Regards

My new garage is located in MT but I currently live overseas in Africa. As such, I wish to be contacted by a customer service representative via e-mail. Note that I state below the building is wood but the walls are LOGIX concrete blocks and the header is wood. Thanks

37

Do you guys do residential? We have two 8x7 (approx) garage doors that we don't want to have open to the inside. Is the hydraulic an option? Need good insulation for Boston area as well. Thanks in advance.

38

Do you have a hydraulic garage door that would work for a residential garage? It would not need to be opened electronically, as we are using the front of our garage for storage and are building a wall about 3 feet inside the garage door. We don't want a standard door because it would interfere with the wall when it opens up. Please provide a quote for a basic residential hydraulic door that would be 8 by 10 feet.

I would like to use two hydraulic doors for my home garage.
