What People Are Asking?



Hi, I am contacting you as I like the sea container doors concepts especially the flip up hydraulic doors on both sides and the drill/manual pump opening system. Does Schweiss Doors have a distributor in Australia or company you have sold to that does modified sea containers? Please can you send me any details in an email response and if possible any concepts for a 20ft sea container. We are looking at different ideas for heat refuges for our oxy cutters for sun shade and that allows natural air flow. Regards


I am looking to build some custom shipping containers and I am interested in schweiss container doors for awning moving wall door and deck solutions. I have some containers that I want to have the hydraulic door on the long sides flip up to create an awning. Some where they flip down to make a deck. And some where one small end flips down for a deck. I am curious on your pricing options and if you do the assembly and then ship the containers.


We have built similar doors in the past but your designs and ingenuity is unparalleled. As a business with 7 locations across Canada, we currently generate between $2-$3m in revenue selling, renting and modifying containers and feel these doors would be a fantastic addition to our arsenal for mods and as a modification part dealer to diy enthusiasts.


We are currently working on a prototype project that would require us to provide a wall/roof assembly that would fold down out of the way. Picture a shipping container construction measuring 8' wide by 10' long by 8' high. We would split this unit into two halves (a clam shell) that measure 4' wide by 10' long by 4' deep. These two halves would be hinged attached to the container base. After looking at your straps we think this is something that we could make work? This has the potential of 100's of production units. The customer does not want to utilize hydraulics.


Interested in adding hydraulic lift doors to our container customization options.


Please contact via email... I saw your "container concepts" info. Do you have a price list for your easy access options and more info/pricing on your container joining options. Thanks


I am looking for more information on the Convertible Storage/Stage Container. Also possibly a custom event container.

We are the nation's largest mobile kitchen manufacturer. We are currently working on a project that is a 16' trailer with glass cooler doors down both sides and a cooler inside. We are looking to do a bifold door or one of you container style doors on both sides of the trailer. Currently, the awning is 73.45: wide and 67.25" tall. We could either do two awnings as we are doing now or one of yours that would be slighly more than double the width shown above. Please let me know availability and pricing. We would need enough to do 7 units at this time with the potential to do far more for this customer.


Looking for costs of hydraulic awning doors for 20’ High Cube container. 1 x side wall - 2 x end walls. Do you supply kits or complete container?


Is the easy access shipping container with the two hydraulic doors something you offer as a complete item, or just the doors?


Hi, I'm Pete at the U of MN West Central Research and Outreach Center in Morris. We are working on a portable solar panel trailer to be used in a pasture setting to provide shade for dairy cattle and generate electricity. The panels will need to fold to move the trailer from pasture to pasture. From our concept designs the structures to support the panels resemble a door frame for a bi-fold door. Would Schweiss be interested in looking at out our project and possibly designing and building these panel support structures? Thanks.


I am interested in your hydraulic shipping container doors. We have some 40ft. containers that we are converting to storage and work spaces that we could like to have you large single-piece hydraulic doors for access into the containers. We would be doing the install ourselves but would need all the required framing and door materials as well and manufacturers installation guides.


Hello, I'm working with a client that needs a custom/semi-custom shipping container with hydraulic doors. The current trailer is 40ft by 8ft and I'd like to talk to someone on your team about this application to understand if this is something you could make and if so what the rough cost and lead time would be. Thanks, GL


Ok to call, but looking for a quote. Building a bbq pod similar, if not exact to…. Link below. I need a hydraulic 1 piece door that I can install for this project. I will design building/structure around this door. I will be using the thin plastic fake deck boards for outside of structure. Is it ok to use wood frame for door, or do you sell steel frame? Or do I have contractor install steel frame. Do you recommend steel? What is lead time on your doors? Thank you.


Hi! We are a shipping container modification company based in Atlanta, GA and we are looking for pricing for the hydraulic doors for the sides of 20' and 40' containers. I wasn't sure if you only sell the full doors with the hydraulics or if the hydraulic systems are sold separately. Thank you for any guidance and pricing you may be able to provide for these.


Looking for a [17'W x 7'H] schweiss bi-fold or single-panel hydraulic door to be installed onto either side of a [20'L x 8'W x 8.6'H] Shipping Container. Available to discuss further details on Tuesday 09/06 in the late morning or afternoon.


Need help with sizing and logistics for a 4' tall by 20' wide single piece opening hydraulic door. this would serve as a security cover to an open shipping container inside a warehouse type building.


Looking at opening a food truck that is made out of a shipping container. would like to have an awning door on one maybe two sides where customers can order. Are you able to make hydraulic container doors like this?


Hi injuring about container doors. I saw a few on your website and I'm interesting in converting a container into a small show trailer for my business. Could I get pricing on small container doors?


Hello, I was wanting to get a quote on a hydraulic lift system. Our company provides modified portable storage units and I was looking to get a hydraulic lift container vessel doors to open a door about 8'x18' on the side of a container and what that might cost for the mechanism.


Greetings We are attempting to build a bar, here in Columbus Ohio, out of shipping containers. And we are interested in having your hydraulic container vessel doors installed on some of the containers. I look forward to speaking with you. Cheers! Felicia


Good morning, I am an Architect from Palo Alto California who is interested in obtaining some cost information with regards to the Schweiss Container with hydraulic or bifold strap doors. We are designing a project for a relatively small site using shipping containers as the architecture and would like some pricing information regarding using your unit to incorporate it into a ground floor cafe/coffee shop use. We would be looking for a container door  unit similar to what you have shown on your website(1 end door and 1 door on the long side about 12' wide), although we'd be finishing the interior in conjunction with other shipping containers making up the space. Any order of magnitude pricing would be very helpful at this early schematic stage of our design as we are budgeting for the project now. thank you and look forward to hearing from you.


I like the idea of your company's "Build your own door" package. Would you do this for a bifold container door also. It is a smaller door and I think a a hydraulic lift would be cost prohibitive. So if it's possible I would like a quote of what a "build your own door" kit cost and also a quote for what it would cost for you to manufacture the whole Schweiss container door set up for me.


Hello we have a 20 foot shipping container and a 40 foot shipping container. we are looking for the container vessel doors the entire side to fold down on both sides so the container will be open ground level. If you could direct us in the right direction for that it would be much appreciated. Thank you


I'm working on a senior community it the Balt./DC suburbs and I have a client request to have a dumpster/compactor container door enclosure on site. I'd like to provide a bifold door that would allow the trash trucks to access the compactors, but be high enough that the truck won't hit the door when it comes in to grab the trash. The opening I need clear is about 20' wide by about 15' high. And I'm hoping to use materials/colors that match the adjacent building to try to make this gigantic bifold container door "disappear" as much as possible. Do you guys have the capability to make a door within these parameters? Thanks! Greg


I need for your information about modified container with open side bifold lift door for coal container. We really have your advice about it. Thank you
