Schweiss now offers both RED and GREEN Hydraulic Pump and Cylinder Paint Colors
The Schweiss Red Power and Green Power manifold has a clean, crisp design. It features a polished finish, no exposed plumbing lines, and a filter drainport that allows oil to drop back into the tank preventing messy oil puddles. Includes a filter clogging indicator showing when to change your filter element. 3000 PSI pressure gauge is standard and gives you the reading of the pump pressure used to open the door.
Auxiliary screw-on oil filter is easy to change. Best quality filter that protects the hydraulic pump from impurities. Oil filter / breather cap / filler port has a rich looking polished finish. Clean looking! The easy screw-on cap has a built in screen to keep debris out; important when adding oil. Sight glass displays the oil level and temperature in the oil reservoir tank. Red Power hydraulic oil reservoir has a heavy-duty, long-lasting powder-coated tank with a drain plug.
Schweiss Doors has set new and higher standards in hydraulic pump development and safety features.
The Red Power pump/motor system from Schweiss Doors offers superior electrical components that stand leagues above others. Why? Our Red Power motors come equipped with a stand-alone electrical control box. The unique design of the Red Power motor system is designed with safe UL listed components. Plus, it's composed of common components, standard in the electrical industry throughout the world. These electrical control boxes are also designed with ample space to safely house all required electrical components, such as contactors, transformers, relays, motor timers, rectifiers, and control fuses. Motor assemblies must be wired to National Electrical Code (NEC) standards.
Schweiss Doors uses top-quality, heavy-duty, brand name LEESON motors that are totally enclosed, fan cooled, and come with a common 56C face mount standard shaft size powering a single gear-driven pump. Plus, these quality continuous-duty motors are safety-backed with fuses and overload protection.

Strongest Doorframe on the Market!
No Wood used on Schweiss Doors!
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."
Strongest hinge assembly on the market
The Push Tubes Tie directly into the hinge assembly

The Schweiss robust hinges are designed to withstand the door weights and hydraulic forces of the cylinders as the door opens.
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 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 the door weight and hydraulic forces over time. This won’t happen with a Schweiss Door!
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 door weight and hydraulic forces pull down on hinge when door is opening.
• "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 that even come close to the Schweiss hinge design."
• Removable hinge pins are a better design... They are never welded in solid on a Schweiss door.
• Schweiss hinges can be easily greased for a longer hinge life.
• Schweiss hinges distribute the door loads evenly across the doorframe and header tube for longer hinge life,
giving you longer door life!
• GREASEABLE HINGES for longer hinge life... No bushings to wear thin.
• We take no shortcuts... All hinge pins are removable.

Hydraulic doors are large in size and just like an airplane wing, the door frame flex during operation. The hydraulic cylinders on each side of the doorway are connected to the door frame and the building using spherical bearings. The spherical bearings accommodate the flexibility of the door frame while at the same time allowing the cylinders to raise and lower the door without binding on the hydraulic cylinder pins and brackets. Spherical Bearings on both ends of the cylinder allow the cylinders to stay straight through the full range of motion.

Stacking wood on top of each other
adds unnecessary weight to the door.
Did you buy an all-steel door? Did you expect to get wood on your steel door? Substituting wood in place of steel doesn't add
structural value to the doorframe. It makes for a poor connection and weaker doorframe assembly. Wood may shrink over time
and may split! Tec screws used to fasten wood to the doorframe may wiggle loose over time, weakening the connection.
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 our new hydraulic doors that swing outward. Already a leader in the bifold door industry, Schweiss Doors now offers a better hydraulic door. The door design requires zero headroom, comes prehung, 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 doorrame allow the doorframe to swing out and away from the building to the full open position. The hydraulic pump can be located awa from the door opening to keep a clean look.
