Proper drainage for Schweiss Hydraulic Doors Drainage for Schweis Bifold Doors Concrete floor drainage for Schweiss Hydraulic Doors Concrete floor drop off at edge column

• The door sets on the face of the side column or building line.

Doorframe column footings

T-Hangar Buildings with doors on both sides of the building

What to do!

What can be done to keep water out of the building

• Slope the apron in front away from the building

• Slope the concrete inside of the building

Concrete options for draining t-hangar floors
Keep water off your hangar floor Avoid any seams/cracks under doorframe

What not to do

1 - No or minimal slope on apron.

2 - Locating the seam directly under the bottom rubber seal of the door.

3 - Allowing water to flow back into the building through a seam/crack.

(This is a result of failure to follow precautions 1 & 2 above)

Important to remember:

•  Saw cuts may cause water to flow back into the building.

•  The combination of saw cuts and no slope may cause water to flow into the inside of your building.
