ABOUT HYDRAULIC PUMP PLACEMENT
- Under Workbench - Hydraulic power unit can be placed under a workbench or anywhere in the room.
- Wall Mount: Up or Down - mount anywhere away from the door opening or even in another room.
- Stand Alone Unit - Complete stand-alone hydraulic unit can be placed anywhere in the building.
- Up/Down/Stop Switch - Mounted near the door opening
- Electrical Control Panel - Can be mounted independently from the hydraulic pump
Can be placed anywhere within the building structure
Schweiss hydraulic doors are custom made to fit any size opening for your building. Each door is built to fit your clear opening without using up existing headroom. There is no such thing as an odd size door or a job too small. You dream it, and we make your dreams come true.
Schweiss Doors is proud of its new hydraulic doors that swing outward. Already a leader in the bifold door industry, Schweiss Doors also now offers a better hydraulic door. The door design requires zero headroom, comes pre-hung, is watertight, easy to install, easy to operate with the push of a button, easy to insulate and swings out to provide a canopy when the door is in the open position.
Powered by a powerful hydraulic pump, two heavy duty cylinders activate the hydraulic doorframe. Hinges across the top of the doorframe allow it to swing out and away from the building to the full open position. The hydraulic pump can be located away from the door opening to keep a clean look.

Let's say you go to raise your door in an emergency with the
battery backup only to find out the battery is dead . . . Now what?
Highly unlikely, but for some reason the hydraulic gear
pump motor took a puke.
The Auxiliary pump in the tank will raise and lower the door with a handheld drill. If you arrive at your door and the battery is dead, now you have the option to use a cordless drill to open or close the door!
When you order the Battery Backup System,
it comes with its own gear-driven auxiliary pump.
The Backup Systems ensure that
you can get your door open or closed under most conditions.
Schweiss doorframes are designed with double push tubes that are tied directly into the wrap-around hinges that connect both vertical push tubes directly to the header tube. The advantage of double push tubes is that forces of hydraulic cylinders are evenly distributed to the doorframe and the wrap-around hinges.
"There have been hydraulic doors with hinge welds that failed, literally tearing off the doorframe and destroying the door," Schweiss says. "Our design team provided a more durable wrap-around hinge with grease zerks that are accessible without removing the top rubber seal."
Robust Center Hinges
Tubular Self-Supporting Subframe and columns
Robust End Hinges
GREASE ZERKS ON ALL HINGES
Schweiss hinges distribute the door loads evenly across the
self-supporting subframe greatly reducing stress on the building structure
The Schweiss robust hinges are designed to withstand the door weights and hydraulic forces of the cylinders as the door opens.
Your door is only as good as its hinges! Take one look at the Schweiss hinges and you will clearly see the workmanship, strength and functionality of each hinge. The Schweiss hinges are bigger... stronger... heavier.
The weight of the door and hydraulic forces exert loads on the hinge while the door is operating
The unique hinge design incorporates heavy hinge plates that wrap around each vertical push tube for added rigidity. Without this wrap-around design, the doorframe members can be overstressed and begin to tear apart from door weight and hydraulic forces over time. This won’t happen with a Schweiss Door!
Hydraulic doors operate with one set of top hinges. These hinges need to be strong enough to support the door weight and the hydraulic cylinder forces when opening; unlike a bifold door that shares the load between the top hinges and the center hinges.
• "The hinges sold me."
• "The Schweiss team hit a home run by putting grease zerks in their hinges."
• "Now that's a Serious Hinge, You guys have it figured out!"
• "Oh my, nothing comes close to it. Professionally done!"
• "Nothing on the market will even come close to the Schweiss hinge design."

Hinge surface area is critical on large moving hydraulic doors. Over the years, we all have heard of hinge failures on others doors. Large hydraulic cylinders are putting extreme forces on each of the outer hinges of the doorframe. Schweiss has designed and patented a robust hinge with more surface area to evenly distribute the loads of a moving one-piece doorframe. Compare the hinge surface area. The stresses on the very outer hinges are immense. With that being said, take one look at the patented Schweiss hinges and you'll clearly see the workmanship, strength and functionality of each hinge.

with Grease Zerks
It's very important to be able to grease yourhydraulic door hinges with a heavy viscosity grease. When grease is used on the hinges of a large moving door it avoids unnecessary wear and adds longer life to the hinge and the doors operation. It's a common manufacturing practice to use grease on the critical wear points and load points to avoid unnecessary wear just like in the industrial equipment world with implements such as payloaders, skidloaders and other industrial equipment that are being operated around the clock. Schweiss would never consider greaseless bushings on a large moving door - your door hinges need grease!
NOT A SCHWEISS DESIGN
Doors when fully opened only rotate the greaseless bushings 25 percent of a complete revolution around the hinge pin. Schweiss will not use thin greaseless bushings. Since the movement on the hinge is limited to 25 percent of the surface area, this is more likely to cause uneven wear to the greaseless bushing and they may need to be replaced sooner! How do you begin to replace the bushing if the hinge pins are welded in place?
