Hydraulic vs. Bifold
What People Are Asking

111: ARCHITECTURAL HYDRAULIC DOORS

1

We are working with an Architect/GC on an existing building that is going to be re-skinned with new glass. They want to include a hydraulic glass  door (1) that will consist of glass curtainwall. The overall size is 10'x10'. We are looking for budget numbers at this time.

I work for an architectural firm, doing all sorts of projects from residential and condo dwellings to industrial and commercial buildings. Working on a project for a helicopter hangar, our client wanted to use bifold doors, a product that we knew nothing about. Searching on the internet, I discovered your company and noticed Schweiss also specializes in hydraulic doors. I would be interested, if possible, to receive an architectural binder, containing the technical information about your products (minimum and maximum dimensions, exterior finishes, insulation and R value is possible, colors, warranties, installation, cost %u2026). I also found that you can also do some custom bifold and hydraulic door projects and we find this aspect very interesting. Thank you in advance for your help. Have a nice day.

I'm with an architectural firm out of Denver, CO. We have a new mall we are designing that we think should use your hydraulic designer doors. One is 25'x15, the other 25'x14 - and we would be adding some decorative rock to the outside face. Could you outline the safety features, such as photo eyes, etc. that we can get with these hydraulic designer doors.  We also would like engineering design loads so we can understand how it affects our structures. I will  provide architectural door renderings to clarify what we have in mind. Thanks - Chad

Hello, I am an architect in Miami and I am interested in using a hydraulic power door product like yours in a commercial application. Do any of your products carry a Miami Dade NOA?

I am working on a project in which I would like to use several hydraulic doors with the new Red Power pumps. It is an interior installation for a board room that we would like the walls to swing open. We are early in the design phase so the dimensions are flexible to allow for standard sizes (if necessary). Right now we are looking at four 16\' long by 9\' doors with glass. Acoustic separation is an issue. I\'ve not spec\'d a system like this so any assistance or recommendation you can offer would be very helpful.

Hi, I am a 3rd year architecture student studying at Illinois Institute of Technology. I am writing in regard to more information about the Schweiss products such as CAD drawings. I read through your web site and and found it very informative. I love the creative things you do with a simple door. Thank you for your help.

I'm an architect working on a project in Boston, trying to get a budget quote for a hydraulic door. Actually, we need two hydraulic doors. They are both 6'-9 1/2" tall. One is 15'-7" wide and the other is 22'-2" wide. The bottom of the door will come to rest on the top of a bar that is partially inside, partially outside. The door would be mostly glass wil aluminum and/or steel partitions and framing.
