SCHWEISS MANUFACTURES TWO STYLES OF DOORS

Hydraulic vs. Bifold
What People Are Asking

28: AIR PARK DOORS

1

Just begining the process of spec'ing out our dream house at an airpark in central AR. I have no idea about the costs for a hanger, including the door. Would like a ROM estimate for the hydraulic hangar home door and installation (assume local contractor?). Got some of your info at Airventure. Really impressed with your new interlocking insulation panels and upgraded new auto latch. I'll want those for sure.

2

Can you give me a budgetary quote. I will be using RapidSet Buildings for the design and hangar kit for MI airpark doors. Interested in hydraulic and bifold airpark doors. 

3

I need budgetary pricing and delivery information on a 25' wide x 20'high [Clear OPENING] bifold liftstrap door and a hydraulic Schweiss airpark hangar door, whichever is least cost. OPTIONAL PRICING.... INCLUDE ADDER FOR 3'-0 x 7'-0 man door framed into right hand side, when viewed from the outside. This door will require modification of an existing 12" CMU wall. What are the required openings?

I would like to talk about a hydraulic door for an existing airpark hanger we are working on. Really like your new compact hydraulic pump unit and have long admired your stronger cylinders. Thank You

This is for a airpark hangar that we are going to start building, If I can change something to save cost let me know. The building is 50 x 50 and I was going to build it out of 2 x 6 with a trust roof. Only price your liftstrap bifold door with autolatches and remote opener.  Thanks Jim

15

I've been talking to other pilots about your bifold hangar doors. They all give Schweiss Doors high marks. I'm building a new hangar next month. I know you build windrated doors, but do your custom-made airpark hangar doors have a "center pin" that goes into the concrete in the center of the hangar door to keep wind from bowing it outward? I would want that door safety feature. 

16

We are building a private airpark hangar in Delray Beach (FD08). We are interested in a hydraulic windrated Schweiss door and need to discuss with Schweiss and get Schweiss to work with Architect to make sure construction will support the door.

I am planning to move back to MN from NM in the spring and want to build a 50' X 60' hangar at M Lake . I can't make up my mind as to a bi fold or hydraulic door. I have seen both in operation yet MN has a bit of snow as you must realize. I would like a remote and both have that. I am not wild about the external trusses but I also need at leat a 12' plus opening on a 45 ft door. I also like the windows in the door but not the door in the door. It needs good insulation as I will be heating it during the winter. I need your advise at present and a price quote. We presently have a place on an airpark in NM and have a 40ft sliders stackable door on a 50 X 60 ft hangar. Great for the south but not the north. Give me a call or send an e-mail. Thanks Laurie

I am preparing to build a new home and hangar on an airpark near Tulsa, OK. I am interested in your bi-fold door with the strap opening system. I am working on the design now and am contacting hangar builders. I will be starting in the next 30 days. I am guessing the door I need will be about 45' - 50' wide.

I had already filled out this info but may have inadverdantly sent it out into cyber space ahead of time. Forgive me if you have already received it. I am closing on a new home at an Air Park in Mountain Grove, MO on Oct. 19. I plan to build a 40'x 60'x 12'Wood Pole Hanger with Steel Siding sometime in late Spring. I would like to locate a 40' x 10' bi-fold door within 5' of the right corner of the long side of the hanger. Obviously, this would mean the door would be perpandicular to the trusses. Do you have a system that could frame the door and support the trusses? If so, what would be the approximate costs and do you have any literature on such a system? Respectfully, Andre C.

53

I presently live at the VanAire Skyport fly in community and have started pricing up a new home on an adjoining lot. Would appreciate it if you could e mail me a quote for a bifold door per the following, Thank you.

I need a hydraulic hangar door for a residential airpark home. It will need 12' open clearance X 40' Wide. We are adding a 30' wide X 60' long hangar to the rear of a wood building. The door will mount in the 60' long section. I need free standing steel mounting frame so I can build around the door.

60

We are planning a new home on Sky Harbor Airpark in Webster, Minnesota. Construction should be during the summer of 2007. I would like to get some information on the door options available along with some budget numbers and enough construction information to allow our builder to arrive at a good budget for the hangar itself. We are wanting to have 12'-6" clear inside and will need to discuss the headroom issues on the building exterior.

61

I had been communicating with Julie S. last year and placed my price lock order with her. I just sent an email to her with questions and it bounced back. Anyway, here is the email I sent: Hi Julie, Just to let you know, we're getting close. Question(s): I'm planning on and have been quoted a 40 X 14' door. I can't remember, what is the vertical clear opening on the 14' high door? (with a maximum wedge) How about 12'? What seems to be the 'norm' on residential airpark hangers that you get orders for? Am I going overkill on a 14' high door? Do you guys have an insulation package available? Recommendations? Re: the vertical steel going down the sides of the opening for the wheels to roll on; am I responsible for providing that in my building, or does that come with the door? FYI, I'm leaning toward a Walters Building (post and beam) now. Does that effect you? Thanks Julie! Alan B. , OH (formerly Walton, KY)

62

I am having a house built on an airpark,and the hanger door opening is 9.82 ft high x 39.36 ft wide,would you please provide me with following. a price for the door ( unclad). two hydraulic cylinders and the power unit to drive it, would you also advise the weight of the door,so the I beam can be sized. I look forward to your response M Peron

I live near Denton Texas (just north of Dallas), does someone do your doors down here?? I live at an airpark, hangar is on the end of the house.
