Some manufacturers still continue to try and sell cable lift bifold doors - cable doors that not only require frequent maintenance due to fraying, breaking and overwrapping, but which also open much slower, are hard to adjust, are not as safe as straps, and are noisier then liftstrap doors.
Schweiss Doors is introducing an all-strap bifold door! Straps do the lifting and now straps do the latching too! It doesn't get any better than an all-strap door. The sim- plicity of the new latch strap is truly amazing! Schweiss did away with all the cables, chains, sprockets and pulleys; and it now has 90 percent less moving parts. This is a real game changer in the bifold door world! It doesn't get any better than an all‑strap door.

Bifold Doors have been around for years, but thanks to Schweiss Doors foresight, they are 100 times better now! Calls are coming in from owners of all styles of cable doors asking:
"Can you convert our cable lift doors to the 'Schweiss liftstraps and autolatches?"
That's a good question! The answer is YES, we sure can! No matter the make, model or manufacturer of the door they own, they can see the obvious: Schweiss Liftstrap Bifold doors are a safer, faster, and better solution than outdated cable lift doors.

Schweiss doorframes are designed with double push tubes that are tied directly into the wrap-around hinges that connect both vertical push tubes directly to the header tube. The advantage of double push tubes is that forces of hydraulic cylinders are evenly distributed to the doorframe and the wrap-around hinges.
"There have been hydraulic doors with hinge welds that
failed, literally tearing off the doorframe and destroying
the door," Schweiss says. "Our design team provided
a more durable wrap-around hinge with grease zerks
that are accessible without removing the top rubber seal."
