The Sacramento Kings Stadium Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento, CA, is nearing completion.
The arena will host concerts, conventions and other sporting events with capacity at about 19,000. The Sacramento Kings basketball team is scheduled to begin using the arena for the 2016-2017 NBA season.
Schweiss Doors engineered and built five bifold/strap latch doors to be used at the stadium entrance. Three of these doors measured 29' x 41' 5" and the other two were 29' 4" x 41' 5". Each door is lifted by three 5 h.p. motors and the liftstraps are 6" width, compared to the usual 3" width. The doors, with glass, weigh in at about 28,000 lbs. each.
The Schweiss bifold glass doors will allow the Delta Breeze to serve as a natural cooling system, pulling air in through small vents found under the seats in the stands. The total cost of Golden 1 Center is estimated to be $507 million.
