Some manufacturers still continue to try and sell outdated cable lift bifold doors. Cable-lift doors not only require frequent maintenance dur to fraying, breaking and overwrapping, but also open much slower, are hard to adjust, are noisier, and not as safe as liftstrap doors.
That's a good question! The answer is YES, we sure can! No matter the make, model or manufacturer of the door you own, you can see the obvious: Schweiss Liftstrap Bifold doors are a safter, faster, and better solution than outdated cable lift doors.
Ninety-nine percent of Schweiss bifold door customers are now demanding the stronger, patented polyester lift straps. For years, bifold doors were lifted and lowered by the slow, conventional means of outdated steel cables, that have a tendency to fray, overwrap, and break.

Schweiss Doors didn't just wrap our head around heavy-duty bifold and hydraulic door hinges, we went a step further and engineered robust, user-friendly, greasable hinges with a removable hinge pin.
The new hinge design, with grease zerks on every hinge segment enables bifold door owners-whether they be private individuals or commercial customers-to periodically grease their hinges from the underside of the doorframe without having to go through the cumbersome process of first removing the top rubber weather seal.
Schweiss Doors is the only door manufacturer to offer easily accessible greasable door hinges for bifold and hydraulic doors that can be greased from the underside of the door without removing the top weather seal.
• Ability to grease the top hinges without removing the top rubber seal . . . Time Saver!
• Grease zerks on each and every hinge
• Removable / replaceable hinge pins Schweiss does not weld its hinge pins

Liftstraps make the door easier to look over for potential problems. They are
certainly alot less maintenance, not as much adjustment, you don't have to worry about
cable clamps slipping or even the fact that when they started fraying people could rub against them.
Cables were just a maintenance nightmare. We were having a lot of problems keeping the cables adjusted and replacing broken cables. It was really hard to tell when a cable was slipping, and it would go from looking perfectly fine to fraying almost immediately. We have millions and millions of dollars in aircraft rolling underneath these doors so we have to be increadibly careful, if one of those doors came down the aircraft would be totaled - maintenance has dropped off to nothing with the liftstraps.

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