Schweiss has designed and figured out a simple way for customers to build their own hydraulic doorframe, but more important, without sacrificing the Schweiss quality and the unique design features we offer!
Benefits of building your own door are not only rewarding, but it can save thousands of dollars. We have customers that start out with one door and soon after they are ordering their second and third doors.
We realized the great demand for the popular Schweiss Hydraulic Door Design and figured out a way for customers who are willing to weld their own steel doorframes together to purchase our major hydraulic door components that are properly sized from Schweiss Doors.
The challenge when figuring out the Build Your Own Door Kit, was to be able to develop a hinge that comes preassembled, prewelded, and is robust in design. By going back to the drawing board the design team had its work cut out for them - the end results were very rewarding. In the design process we figured out a uni-body hinge design that wraps around the steel doorframe members, making it the strongest, most reliable hinge design in the door industry. It now includes the first of its kind hydraulic hinge on the market with grease zerks where hinges can be greased from inside the building. Others either have no grease zerks or must remove the outside rubber gasket at the top of the door to get to the grease zerks; very costly, time consuming, and hard to get to. So, guess what? The hinges are most likely left unlubricated! The Hydraulic Door Kit consists of a complete set of new heavy-duty end and center hinges with grease zerks, a factory wired Red Power hydraulic unit and all the seals necessary to provide a weathertight door.
Schweiss' newly designed door software, extensive engineering, and new "patent applied for" door components make the door kit possible. It's now easy and simple for customers to manufacture the steel doorframe with these door components, making the door kit user-friendly, thereby allowing hydraulic doors to be built in your own shop. The Schweiss design software provides all the necessary door specs, weights, forces, and detailed information needed when designing your building structure for a hydraulic door.
The (BYOD) Build Your Own Door Kit reduces delivery cost to the end-user, even as steel and fuel prices increase. Our door components are easy to ship and can be easily installed, and your doorframes can be welded at any location, worldwide.
You will appreciate the Schweiss Door Kit design, and the ease and convenience of welding your own doorframe in your own shop. The complete kit includes everything necessary to give you the same quality Schweiss Advantage.
Schweiss understands what keeps a business going. Schweiss is a dependable door company that manufactures a better and safer product.

Schweiss furnishes an easy-to-read blueprint and complete steel list to get you started building your own doorframe. Hinge components are pre-welded into an assembly for your convience; simply position the hinges and weld them on!
Schweiss door design uses solid tubular steel frame members. We don't use wood or C-Channel.
Manufacturing plans from the Schweiss Design Team are included with each hydraulic doorframe. All welding and fabrication of the subframe and doorframe will be done by the customer, under Schweiss direction.
Subframe & Doorframe design limits the amount of additional stresses the door, and its operation, exert on the building structure. Highly engineered onepiece pre-hung frame allows a relatively trouble free installation.
Spherical bearings are fixed on each end of the cylinder brackets to allow cylinder maneuverability as it opens or closes the door, preventing stress or damage to cylinder or doorframe. Schweiss Doors introduced the important safety feature of Spherical bearings to the hydraulic door world. It wasn't long after that we had followers doing the same, but there are those who haven't caught on yet!
