Ladies and Gentlemen, I am thinking about building a hanger at Harrisburg, PA airport. The door is very important for obvious reasons, and I was hoping I could get some cost information for a hanger approx. 50' x 50' in size. I assume the door would be slightly smaller, say 46' wide. The height is for a fairly light GA airplane (I currently have an A36 Bonanza), but I would like to build large enough for a light twin or Piper Malibu. I like the Schweiss electric bi-fold doors I've used in the past with motor at bottom using the straps. Is this enough information to provide a budget price? Could I also get an estimate of installing the door to a pre-engineered building. 


Per specs Liftstrap bifold door mechanism: 1. Minimum 7-32" aircraft grade with 5:1 safety factor. a. 10-year Warranty on straps. 2.

I am designing a hangar to fit an A320 and we are looking to use your Schweiss hydraulic doors, the ones with Red Power hydraulic pumps for fast and heavy lift and with a Red Power backup system. The architect has drawn up the door as 120' x 23' with a 24' x 19'7" tail section. Is this something your doors can provide? If you email me back ASAP I can email you a PDF/CAD of the opening. It is to be installed in a steel building hangar. Thanks Jerry


I desire to build an aircraft hangar from a pole barn type construction in Northwest Alaska. We experience gale force winds, and artic temps. I am envisioning a 48'x40' barn, with your door being in the 48' gable end. The door would have to be tall enough to give ten feet of clearance. We currently have a Cessna 175 to house, but maybe a light twin in the future. Would a Schweiss bifold or hydraulic door work better under these harsh conditions? What backup systems do you have? I would appreciate any information that you can provide to help with the success of this project.


I need some information about Schweiss bifold and hydraulic doors. We have an 18 x 18 drive in door on one of our buildings that has failed. We cycle this door about 40 times per day for the winter months, and 4 time a day during summer months. Would your hangar doors be suitable for this application? If so any recommendations and cost you could supply would be helpful. He is a pilot and has seen your doors advertized and we have discussed their use here several times, now we have a need. Thanks 


Dear Sir: We have now joined a long line of previous, now out of business, competitor door purchasers that have had a complete door failure and have no recourse. The business has declared bankruptcy. Our 70'x20'clear height hydraulic door failed last night. No one was injured and no aircraft was damaged. Which of your products would you recommend we replace this failed door with? Schweiss Bi-fold or hydraulic? My employer recently purchased a bi-fold door that is framed and sits outside the building to retain the opening we needed. They also changed from cables to straps to open their hangar at the local airport. Can you send a rough estimate of cost for a Schweiss bi-fold and hydraulic lift door so we have an idea of what the cost could be to repair our problem and make our hangar useful as soon as possible? Thank you 


Mile High  owns and operates the Lake Anna Airport. We have purchased a Steel Building which is 47' wide by 25' in depth which has a clear opening of 39'0" in width and 10'8" in height.

We would like to include the autolatching option plus shipping charges to the airport. Please advise if you need any additional information or need copies of the building plans to be emailed.


We are considering the development/construction of a series of hangar buildings in  NC.

I am considering building a hangar and am considering my door options. The building options I am considering are 75X75 or 60X60 with a 16-17' door height. I had a Schweiss door in a hangar I rented previously and was happy with it. Right now I am trying to budget properly and compare prices between your door and another door. I want to make sure I have the height available to clear a King Air tail if necessary.

Hi, DMS is the west coast dealer for Behlen buildings, and currently we have two clients for hangars. One client is probably a few months away, as the project is located at an airport, so there's a lot more permissions required. The second is a private client, for whom we have priced out a 60ft X 60ft hangar. He is interested in the overhead bi-fold door to fit a 50ft wide by 20ft high opening. Can you give me a ballpark figure so that i can get some working numbers to the client. Thank you, Mark T.


I need a quote on 2 - 50'wide x 16'high bi-fold hangar doors w/ operators delivered to Abq. Intl. Airport / Eclipse Aviation. My price to Eclipse is due Friday.


I contacted you a few weeks back about a door opener on our hangar door at our Aviation hangar building, in Greenwood, IN. The gentleman that called said it would be $49.00 or so - I don't remember. If you could get back with me again on this opener, I'll give you a credit card to have it sent. Thanks Phil B.
