SCHWEISS MANUFACTURES TWO STYLES OF DOORS

Hydraulic vs. Bifold
What People Are Asking

16: AGRICULTURE DOORS

1

I am getting a price to a customer for a 60'x60' addition on to a 60'x108' Wisconsin dairy barn shed. He wants a 30'x16' bifold strap door on the gable end and move the existing 20'x12' overhead bifold door to the same gable end and convert it from cables to liftstraps. I need a price

I am designing a timber frame barn. I am considering two doors. 12Wx13'6"clear high. The facade I was considering would look like a typical X sliding barn doors except they are a bifold with liftstraps. Looking for feed back on budget and design considerations.

My metal livestock building in Arkansas is now ready for the bifold strap doors which I ordered a month ago. Have your Schweiss Door installers come as soon a door can be installed.

7

I need a quote on two 40' wide 16' tall bifold postframe ag doors. I am assuming the bifolds are electric contols and have no hydraulics? I would  like specs on what you need for lumber or special door framing on existing postframe buildings.

8

Our company has a dairy with 4 tunnel ventilation doors needed. 20 ft wide by 14 ft tall barn doors. These windrated steel bifold doors have a constant 20 mph wind and are used to seal the end of the barn in order to create a tunneling affect drawing air from the open end 600 ft away thru 50 fans on the same wall as the ventilation doors. The electrical powered door needs to open and close  40 times or more per day, and will need to open and close within a couple of minutes, so only your strap style fast opening door will do. These barn doors will need to open inward and have plenty of door swing room inside of the steel building. We have several other smaller barns and will soon need  a bifold door system that can be opened and closed with a hand remote opener door system.

We are finally ready to get those two Schweiss bifold strap doors ordered that we talked about earlier this spring, bid number 41410-DF. I believe the contractor contacted your company about what should be done for installation and will do the install. We had earlier figured the one door at 37 feet 3 inches but need to make that 37 feet even to allow for another ply on the poles. So this is what we will need. 1st door 37 feet wide X 16 feet high with strap lift This door will not be insulated, but I would like to go with the automatic latches and 2 remotes. 2nd door 27 feetwide X 12 feet high with strap lift I plan to insulate this door and would also like the automatic latches and 2 remotes. I would like two fixed windows in this door. You can decide the best placement as long as we can see out while standing. Let me know the final price and what I need to send for a deposit now. Is there any of the upgrades that I should be considering for farm use.

I have two customers requesting quotes for Bi-Fold Lift Strap doors in Canada. 1. 80' x 20' h insulated for an aircraft hanger to replace a sliding door system in Medicine Hat, Alberta 2. 40'w x 18'h un-insulated for Ag use near Morse, Saskatchewan How much room do you need above the door for clearance?

Looking for a bifold liftstrap or hydraulic 26'w and 16' tall door insulated to a n R-10 or better to be installed in Sidney, Ia. If I have a 16' opening can you install a door and provide 16' clearance?. I am bidding a 60x60x16 farm shop

24

I was told the door could be installed on the outside of the building so we would not loose any over head space, But the shop would still be rodent proof. The measurements provided below are the exact opening and we can not have the bifold door any lower than 14'7" (height of combine). If the Red Power hydraulic door would give me better head clearance tell me what the difference would be.  

25

I am going to live in my country house this winter. I have a 50x80 pole building that was built in the 80's. Steel clad, I have two doors on each end; both are sliding and you know what a bear they are in the winter....I was a farm boy who chiseled them many mornings in the winter....anyhow, I want to put my cars and tractor with snow blower in...so, if it snows too much I can open the door and blow my way to the road and get out..... So, the existing door is 24x14......I am thinking about two 10x10 overheads or one overhead that might be a bit smaller.....yours came to my mind.....so now, what is the most economical way to fill the hole? I am cheap and will try to get the least expensive; however, I also want something that works for a long time...in that event, the quality rolls into the lead..... You can get back to me by the cell number. I am working on developing wind farms and will be in ND doing just that.....oh, by the way, have you guys talked to Benson, Mn yet? I was on the airport commission of years...had to get off as was on too long; however, they are building a circle hangar and I don't know if they have the complete package yet....give Gene D. a call in Benson, MN...he is the president....there that should help for a discount...ha, ha....have a great day. I look forward to your response as I am going to do something here before freeze up..... Duaine F.
