NOTE FROM THE OWNER ABOUT
From the minute you press the control button on your handy remote control, you'll be amazed at how this door functions. It's everything you want it to be and more.
The unit has all the bells and whistles and comes with single or 3-phase electrical components. Easy to read psi pressure gauge, service filter and fluid temp gauges let you know that the door is always working properly and at full capacity. Everything is in one compact hydraulic pump unit powered by 2, 3, 5 or 10 horsepower motors to safely lift even the smallest or heaviest doors and seal them tightly.
The Schweiss Safety Advantage allows the door to lock up and down or safely lower or raise your door in case of electrical failure. Each unit comes with a standard tractor hydraulic hookup, lower the door at any time; very handy for agricultural or industrial applications. Special designed built-in manual override allows the operator to lower the door in case of a power outage. Battery backup features which use a DC battery or drill to operate the door in either direction in case of an emergency, giving you a superior backup system for your door and peace of mind.
They're powerful... We're talking THE most Efficient Pumps with standard motors designed ready to lift any size door, at any time, all the time!
Over the years Schweiss factory engineers rolled together customer comments, combined with high-tech design knowledge and experience to come out with perfection in a compact pump unit ready to be mounted anywhere you want it.

Lower teardrop plate is mounted to moving doorframe
Hydraulic doors are large in size and just like an airplane wing, the doorframe flexes during operation. The hydraulic cylinders on each side of the doorway are connected to the doorframe and the building using spherical bearings. The spherical bearings accommodate the flexibility of the doorframe 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.
Lose no headroom... More clearance Robust hinges... with grease zerks
Every doorframe has a self-supporting subframe
Double push tubes for added strength
Fast and easy to install
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."
GREASELESS HINGES ARE NOT A SOLUTION . . . JUST A SHORT CUT!
THIS STYLE HINGE HAS BEEN TRIED BEFORE . . . AND DIDN'T HOLD UP!
