SCHWEISS MANUFACTURES TWO STYLES OF DOORS

Hydraulic vs. Bifold
What People Are Asking

46: ARCHITECTS ASK FOR SCHWEISS DOORS

1

We are architects working in a project in Miami Beach and we want to use one of your product. The idea is to use the Schweiss hydraulic door as garage door for a condominium. The clear opening is 22'-0" x 7'-0" and a McNichols bar grating (GAL 175) attached to the door frame will be the finish Could you please send to us your section and elevation specs in CAD to be incorporated in our drawings. We appreciate your prompt response in this matter 

2

I am an architect, I am working on a project where I am proposing 2 Schweiss hydraulic designer doors of about 12'-6" wide X 9' high, all glass. Could you please give me an idea of pricing and time of production/delivery. I would prefer response by email please.

3

We are architects designing a wood framed building addition to an existing structure and we require a 36 feet wide x 13 feet high insulated overhead hydraulic powered door. Can you provide us with some technical information, costs and delivery/order times??? The project is located in BC, Canada.

Hi, My name is Samuel, I work for a Architectural firm, in CT. Our firm is currently designing a operable hydraulic canopy door for a large home here in Connecticut, the canopy is around 15x60%u2019 in size and lowers 10%u2019 to provide cover to a courtyard below. We have a structural engineer that has designed the structure, lifting points and calculated all the loading requirements. Where we have hit a bit of a dead end is finding someone that can design and manufacture an operable system for lowering and lifting the canopy. (we have had some quotes but most are either very expensive or bulky and not in line with our design, but your Schweiss hydraulic door meets our specs) I was wondering if your company would be interested in working with us and if you could put me in contact with someone to discuss this in further detail. We can also provide preliminary drawings upon request. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, I look forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards,

5

I am coordinating continuing education for our architects and designers. Would you have a local representative available to do a lunch & learn with us in our New Orleans, LA office? Thanks for any information you can provide on both your hydraulic and bifold designer doors. We've looked at your Schweiss Designer Door line on your website, very impressive.

6

I would like you to mail me a catalog to CO of your Hydraulic and Bifolding Liftstrap/Autolatch Doors for architectural specification.

7

Our architectural studio in HI is working on a new university project in Hanoi, Vietnam. We are interested in getting more detailed information on your bi-fold liftstrap doors and hydraulic doors as an option for the university's recreation-gym buildings. We have questions about advice on the size limitations of your product, how it appears from the interiors, and if you have contacts or suppliers in the Southeast Asia region. We would be interested in your knowledge in this region. Please email me with any info. Thank you. 

8

Good Afternoon, I am emailing you on behalf of my NJ architect with Innovation & Design in Architecture. I was wondering if it were possible to get a sample book detailing your hydraulic doors, bifold doors and designer doors from you for our interior library. Let me know if this is possible. 

9

I am the Principal in Charge of a Houston, TX based architectural firm. I would like to get more detailed info on your single panel hydraulic designer door for my new residence. The door would be clad in a 20 GA corrugated metal panel. I would like to achieve a "flush overlay effect with the door so that there is no exposed frame - head or jamb - visible from the exterior. Steel structural columns and beam can be provided as needed to support the door.

10

 I am an architect and we are considering a move to another location here in Helena. We would like to install either a hydraulic or bi-fold door to create an outdoor work space. I grew up on a farm and have been familiar with your doors for many years. I wrestled sliding doors on our shop and everytime wished for the day that we could add a Schweiss door to it. Now in a second life, I am hopeful of the chance. This is a CMU block building and the door would be set in a non-bearing wall. I do realize we'd more than likely have to have a steel subframe to support it. That is not a problem. We just located the space and do not yet have an anticipated size but I wanted to get a feel for the cost of each unit prior to finalizing the size (below is approximate). How do you figure your pricing structure? Do you have discounts for architect/engineer designers when they show it off on their own space? Interested aluminum frame bifold with liftstraps and autolatches.

11

We are an architectural firm in Honolulu, HI and our project is a community center in Hilo, HI and we're considering using the bifold designer door with the lifting straps for the multipurpose room that will be used for large gathering and opens up to a patio.

I'm writing for a architectural door project that our architectural office is designing in CA. We need  two story, two-garage car lift doors and we have specified Schweiss bi fold liftstrap/autolatch garage doors at location. Preserving clear height is critical as we will be placing a car lift inside.

Hello Schweiss Doors, I'm a new employee for Architects in San Francisco, California. I've been given the task of acquiring some CAD drawings for a glass bi-fold door. From your website's "Designer Doors" section, the: Redbull, Stanford, and Santa Clarita Gov. Center all appeared to be what we're looking for. Unfortunately, I know very little about the project and cannot explain too many specifics at the moment. This can maybe be discussed later on as it seems your company does specialized projects. Do you have any general CAD drawings (plan and section) that could be used for a 11' wide 8' 3" high opening? We're just trying to put in a somewhat accurate bi-fold liftstrap/autolatch system into the drawing (as a placeholder really). Thank you, and sorry for the lack of info.

45

Dear Schweiss Doors: I am an architect who has designed a residential project for which I would like to use your bifold liftstrap doors for a folding louvered sunshade.

46

We are architects for a new art museum, which has an insulated loading dock door 10' w x 12' h. Because of a number of limitations, we are considering a vertical bifold door but it would need to fold to the inside, not outside as they usually do. Can you provide that configuration? If so, please provide contact to whom I can e-mail some drawings and start a dialogue about clearances etc.

51

We are renovating an all-wood fruit stand for a client and are interested in incorporating bi-fold shop doors into the store front of the building. The project hopes to utilize four 8x8' bi-fold doors arranged with two (side by side) on the building's northern end wall and two on a single side wall (also side by side). Can the doors be ordered without the drive unit and operated with a manual hand crank? What is the approximate pricing and weight for a door this size? Should a free standing header be deemed necessary, what is pricing on such? Please send response and price quotes. Thank you, Beaman Z., Architect

52

I need to get pricing on a Schweiss door but I don't know if I have enough information for you. I am currently working on a project where the Architect changed one of my insulated coliling doors to a 12'-0"x 11'-0" insulatd, hydraulic, canopy/tilt-up, door prefinished. That is all the information I have. No new specification or anything.

53

I am a designer working at an architecture firm based out of San Francisco. I am interested in using your product on a new construction project. I had a couple quick questions. The first being about the insulative qualities of the doors in a space that will be used for large events/gatherings. Another consideration (as always)is cost and functionality. The openings are relatively small 9'x9', is this cost feasible given their size? Thanks and I look forward to discussing further. Randall M., Junior Designer

54

The attachment is your Schweiss Bi-Fold Door quote to Your Construction. The 2nd attachment is additional door detail information provided by the architect for this project. Would you please review the architect's details and modify your proposal if necessary. I understand that the door installation and the glass glazing is included in your quote. I notice on your original quote that the "ship to" city is incorrect. I am not sure that will make much difference in the shipping costs, but it should be corrected. The "ship to" city is Santa Barbara, CA

I am having hangar plans drawn up. I plan on a Schweiss 46' x 14' bifold liftstrap door. I have two questions: 1. My architect says he will need to loads that the door puts on the hangar structure, and that you can supply the loads. Is this correct? 2. I want a 14' high clear-space opening. How high does the hangar opening need to be for this door? I assume that the door needs a few feet up on top. The side columns are not determined yet, but I think we are going with masonry. Thanks

I am an architect working on some design options for a client who is building a shelter for a large taxidermy "sculpture" of 2 moose. We are looking at large door openings as a way of moving the sculpture in/out of the enclosure for transport, as well as allowing visitors to view the sculpture. I am interested in getting a rough quote to share with our client to determine order of magnitude cost impact. In addition, I am interested in learning about the custom door facing options that we have. Ideally, the door panels would be a combination of wood (rough pine) and a good amount of glass for viewing. I'd like to understand how the door sub frame is designed, and what options we have for working with you to maximize the glass viewing area. Thanks in advance, Matt R.

I'm an architect in Colorado. We've got an unusual house that we want to use bi-fold doors on the garage. Two doors, each covering an 8'x8' opening. I'm interested in budget pricing and any drawings of door / wall intersections at the head and jamb so we can understand clearances. Thanks, Christopher

Hello, I am looking for a bi-fold door that can be installed in a warehouse in Ft. Bliss (El Paso) Texas. I need 6 doors that are 10' wide x 12' high. They need to withstand the wind speeds in El Paso and have straps or other support to allow the doors to be kept open for several hours a day. Please have a sales rep contact me as soon as possible. Thanks, Aasiya M., Architect

I am getting ready to build a house with a hangar underneath it in the Knoxville Tennessee area and need to know if there is a typical door size such as 40 foot by 14 or something in that range that may have some savings since it is might be a standard size? I have an architech drawing the plans right now so I need some advice and some pricing from you.

We have a bifold door on order from your company. We are doing a design build project and my Architect is asking if you have a set of specifications he could obtain to place in his specifications manual. He would like to make his specifications, as they pertain to your unit. If you do, can you send them to him, in word, if possible? Please let me know what you are able to do. Steve K. Vice-President R.D. Lambert & Son, Inc.

Dear Sir: This door is to be used in a pre-fab construction totally made in cement. The side columns are also in cement. Because this is an initial contact, please send us your name and e-mail information and we will then send to you both a photo of the structure as well as drawings directly. In this way you will have more accurate infor-mation regarding this requirement. We look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. Thank you for your prompt reply. Regards N. R. Architect

We would like to use one piece hydraulic door on a residence. The entire door would be covered with standard nail flange windows, weighing approx 9-11lbs per sqft. I am looking for pricing and detail drawings, also the approximate lead time. I assume the door is all knock down construction? A few questions: How large will the pump and motor be? Are we limited on the location of the unit? Can the hydraulic mount directly to the building's w-section columns? If our open is 11'-3" high, how high off the ground does the hydraulic mount to the opening, and how far off the floor does the hydraulic mount to the door? Do you possibly have shop drawings for a similar door? I just want to be sure I am specifying the right door and dimensions as we get closer to construction. Please feel free to contact me anytime via phone or email, Thank you for your help, Josh J. E. Cobb Architects

Please have someone contact me August 7th. I am an Architect working on Laguna Honda Hospital, currently under construction in San Francisco. We are making a change to our main security gate to the new facility, and need to work closely with a manufacturer for a custom designed bi-fold door. This door will need to mount to existing structure (some flexibility may be possible) and will be the housing for some type of metal (aluminum or possibly stainless steel) artwork that will cover the door. Please call me after 8:00 AM Pacific Time (3 hours behind Eastern Standard time) We have a deadline of August 31 for the design. Additionally, the door will need to conform to structural requirements determined by our Structural Engineer due to the State governing body that oversees hospital construction. Thanks very much, Ryan D. Anshen and Allen Architects

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, I AM AN ARCHITECT PRACTICING IN DENVER COLORADO. WE HAVE CLIENTS WHO HAVE A BARN WITH A HIP ROOF WITH A 6:12 PITCH WITH CEDAR SHAKE SHINGLES. THERE IS AN EXISITNG MANUALLY OPERATED HINGED HAY DOOR BUILT INTO THE ROOF APPROXIMATELY 3'-6" X 7'-0". WE WOULD LIKE TO REPLACE THIS OLD ASSEMBLY WITH A NEW SINGLE ONE PIECE HYRAULIC DOOR WITH A REMOTE CONTROL AND THEN CLAD THE DOOR WITH TRU SLATE ROOFING TILES. CAN YOUR DOORS, IF PROPERLY INSTALLED ON A CURB BE USED IN THIS MANNER AND CAN THEY HAVE SLATE TILES ATTACHED TO THEM? IF THIS IS POSSIBLE WE WILL NEED TO DETERMINE THE DETAILS OF CONSTRUCTION. PLEASE LET ME KNOW, THANKS, PAUL J.

Interested in using the door as a glass wall that is operable. Would like to know how your system will compare in cost to a glass overhead door. As an example, what would a glass bi-fold door cost if it were 10'-0" tall x 8'-0"wide? Or 12'-0" tall x 10'-0" wide? Thanks, Phil

We are a small glass shop in NW Montana. I am working with an architect on an innovative design that is beyond our local expertise. However, recognizing the opportunity to build a specialty niche, I am doing the research to provide a solution for my customer. The architect wants a walk-out patio door for a residential project. Dimensions are roughly 15' to 20' wide and 10' to 12' tall. His vision for the framework is an anodized aluminum storefront wall that would lift up utilizing your system to create the walk-out opening. He would then match it with storefront aluminum around the rest of the house. From there, smaller matching bifold windows may be considered for other areas of the residence. Does this sound like a possibility for your company? Thank you for your time. Regards, Keith N.

I'm beginning to work on a corporate facility that will have two hangers. One will be 45,000 sq.ft. and the other will be 30,000 sq.ft. The long side of both will be 300 ft. As an architect, I like the bifold doors for purely aesthetic reasons but I need to determine which door system is best for my client. What is the max span of a single bifold that will accomodate a 28' tail height?

114

Hi; I'm designing a residence where the owner has requested a bi-fold type door similar to your product. The qpplication is different in that it only serves a small work shop. The door would be 12' x 9' high. do you have an attractive product like this and pricing info?? thanks R. B.- Architect

115

We have designed a project in San Francisco that includes 4 bi-fold overhead doors that were considered to be of aluminum construction with translucent panels of Polygal or similar material. The doors are approx 10'-0" wide x 8'-0" high. The doors fit into a window wall 17'-2" high x 23'-0" wide - the door located at one side of the overall panel. Our initial thought was for a flush mounted door - in line with the exterior of the window wall assembly. Your thoughts or suggestions? Lew B. archhitect

I am an architect for Mr. Virgil Williams, Jr. for a building to be constructed in Monroe, GA. He has dealt with you in the past and received a quote from you approximately 2 years ago. The project is now hot and I need assistance for detailing/bracing/sizing door openings, headers, columns, etc. for your bi-fold doors. The building is pre-engineered metal building 80' x 120'. There is a 40'x16' door on the 80' end and a 70'x 16' door on the 120' side. I am most concerned, structurally, about bracing the side wall door. Your prompt response is most appreciated... (As mentioned, this is very hot). Also, do all of your doors open to the outside? Thanks in advance, Dennis N. Architect

Hello I am an architect in Alaska. I am looking at using this of door for two and three car garages in an upscale sudivision. A couple questions: 1. Are there any problems with using 20 individual remote controlled doors fairly close together? Are there enough separate frequencies? 2. How is glazing incorporated into the doors if I want half or all of the door to have clear polycarbonae panels? I have not looked thru all your details yet. 3. Is there a local rep here in Anchorage, Alaska that I can contact? Thanks for your help Jack B.

I need an estimate for a bi-fold door sized 24' wide and 10' high. I will be making my own custom panels so it looks sort of like the image you fetaure on your website of the cedar ba with the vertical Wood panels. just need a ballpark price so I know whether I can afford to pursue this solution. Am an architect and will feature this project on my website and in my press kits. Please advise on pricing and delivery info to a jobsite in Connecticut.Scott , AIA
