Schweiss has built large doors installed at various locations going back to 2008 for Cape Canaveral, Waco, Texas and Vandenberg AFB in California, and they keep coming back for more.
Their latest orders were installed on a new steel hangar at Cape Canaveral. The largest of the two is a Bifold LIftstrap door 90 ft. wide x 61 ft. tall. The second door is 40 ft. wide x 69 ft. tall. Each door is equipped wiith automatic latches and windrated to 150 mph. Bottom-drive 480 volt, 3 phase motors and patented Schweiss liftstraps do the lifting of these doors that exceed 53,000 lbs. The Schweiss Bifold Liftstrap/Autolatch door opens wide to enable rockets at Cape Canaveral to be delivered to the launch pad.
