51

I wish to find the lowest price sorry money is real tight. I am 52 yrs young so I figure as often as I am going to open the door I can crank it myself and at a later date install an opener. I realize that aluminum is lighter but I imagine that it is more costly therefore figure steel. I am flexible on the size as this is a new build and I am doing the work myself. therefore if a different size within close size is better it can be adjusted for (maybe a return or something is in your shop) The building is woodsided to look like a log building so I would like the door to be a flush mount. I am always open to a small road trip and could drive to your plant with pictures to chat all possibilities to get this nailed down if that would be better. Otherwise this is ok. Thanks for all your help on this as I have waited awhile to be able to move forward with the bifold door design but this spring is the time. Darren

79

I have already built my own aluminium bi-fold end wall door. It is 10' tall by 20'wide. Two 5' by 20' frames are the structure hinged by 5 hinges. I am interested in purchasing a turn key opening system from you and want some advice on which is the best for my current structure. Main consideration is light weight since the building is primarily a round tubular (1 1/4" steel tube) truss system mounted on 8- 12' tall 4" by 4" wooden posts. The entire weight of the bi-fold doors is 200 lbs with out any lifting system (motors, cables, pulleys). My guess is your strap system will be too heavy for my door since the entire weight of the door is supported by a 1 1/4" tubular steel truss with a 3/16" flat bar steel welded to it. Is it possible to mount two motors (one on each end of the bld just above the vertical line to the base of the door side rails) and configure a switch to power both motors simultaneously to activate the open and close functions?
