Schweiss Doors Help Dreams Come True

This pilot took the extra step to fulfill what many had dreamed of for years. He is just one of a few of Schweiss bifold and hydraulic door customers, and Schweiss Doors had a part in making his dream come true.

Born to fly, the rest is history. David Burroughs of El Paso, Illinois was born to fly; his new hangar with a Schweiss bifold door was just icing on the cake. His main business now after retirement is historical research, restoration and authentication consulting on aircraft and collectible automobiles.

Collector plane has Schweiss Hangar Door to go with it

One thing that immediately sets off the exterior of the Schweiss bifold hangar door is the window work.

The Schweiss bifold liftstrap hangar door is 44 ft. x 14 ft.
