Schweiss 'Designer Doors' Corner The Market
With Incomparable Engineering and Quality!

Ask any Schweiss Designer Door owner: Chances are very good that they'll say purchasing a Schweiss bifold or hydraulic door of any style was one of the best investments and smartest decisions they ever made. Schweiss door aesthetics are one factor, but what really matters is quality of construction and door longevity with reliable efficient performance for years to come.

Schweiss glass designer doors will enhance the interiors and exteriors of homes and offices; blending in so well that sometimes you have to look twice to see it's actually a door, room divider or moving glass wall.

There are many choices of decorative door coverings that can be clad with siding to blend in with adjacent walls. You may also want to choose from glass, metal siding, decorative wood, translucent panels, decorative and custom windows and trim, vinyl siding, stucco, rock face material and more to make your door one of a kind with its unique style.

Whether it be a hydraulic or bifold style door our outstanding long line of Designer Doors are used on homes, restaurants, stadiums, museums, RV garages and more.

SCHWEISS OPENS NEW DOORS TO THE WORLD EVERY DAY

Our Motto Has Long Been . . . "You Think It - We Build It!"

Schweiss Designer Doors Are a Leader in the Designer Door World:
On the Schweiss website, go to "Must See Photos," "Designer I or Designer II" buttons and you'll be amazed at the many and varied applications Schweiss Designer Doors have been used for. There has been an overwhelming demand for Designer Doors. Requests have been coming in daily and leaving the factory on a regular basis. Schweiss opens new doors every day. Schweiss doors stand out in a league of their own.

Flexibility:
Schweiss has long been known for its design flexibility. Our design team works with architects, contractors, dealers and building suppliers to make sure the door you order will precisely fit your clear opening. We'll answer your questions and provide AutoCAD shop drawings, door weights, loadings, hinge locations, specs and fine details. Customer satisfaction is our number one goal. We strive to make everyone proud of their door project.

Custom Design:
Schweiss will help you work through your design questions. We welcome any challenge, bring your ideas to us; together we will make it happen. Every Schweiss door is custom-made whether it's a bifold or hydraulic door; there are no restrictions or size limitations. If you are retrofitting an existing building or opening and need a freestanding header to support your building or door, Schweiss can design a support header that works for you.

Quiet/Smooth Operation:
You'll be amazed at how quiet and smoothly our patented liftstrap or one-piece hydraulic doors operate and how well they seal and lock-in tight to your building in all types of weather. Built-in safety features make our doors the best. We can provide photo eye sensors, warning horns and lights, remote openers, walkdoors, keyless lock entry and backup systems in case of power outages.

Architects Use Schweiss:
Architects from coast-to-coast, Canada and overseas look to Schweiss Designer Doors for structural integrity that also provides strong security, ease and simplicity of operation with a nice clean look. Schweiss Doors come with a stellar reputation and the staff at Schweiss is always very helpful. As one architect said, "If a world-class architect specifies Schweiss, it must be for a good reason!"
