63: CRANE DOORS

1

I have a project for a industrial building door, but have to have a rail for a bifolding Schweiss crane door. I want to know if you can take a look at the pictures and make opinion for this. 

2

Schweiss Strap-lift craneway door to be installed in endwall of a new metal building. Need 18' clear. Quote door installation labor and price for a free standing door header and labor to install free standing header. Building will have interior liner door panel. Price fast opening electric door. 

3

Looking for a bi-fold boat house crane door. Crane inside so I can't put overhead. Customer wants a windowed full view aluminum door. Similar to a service station. Will only consider liftstrap boathouse door with autolatches.

4

I purchased a fairly large metal building (250ft x 120ft, 18' eve, 0.5:12 pitch) and I would like to install a large Gantry crane door in the west end. The roof beam along the end wall is about 12" with 6 vertical columns (including the corners) versus about 16" or 18" beam and 4 columns for the rest of the building. Is it possible to put a bifold door or hydraulic steel crane door in this wall? Desired size of crane door is 50'-60' wide x max ht.

5

I am contractor needing a quote for a company that needs a 50x16 bifold liftstrap crane door. I prefer a door system with straps rather than cables. 

6

Schweiss Team, you can now begin door fabrication on the previously discussed bifold liftstrap steel crane door for our well drilling company building door in Chicago, Illinois.   

7

I'm ready to order a Schweiss industrial grade crane door. I have your Schweiss Door quote but want to discuss the hyd. vs. bi fold strap systems for this heavy duty crane door application.

8

Price a bifold crane door to go into an interior industrial warehouse space. Clear opening is 30' wide by 35' high. Need bifold door weight & door clearance required. Will want your liftstrap door.

9

Our large Gantry Crane door had been causing problems in not being reliable on opening and closing. We'd like to replace it with a Schweiss Crane Door, size is 3900 sq ft and door is either 60 or 65 feet. Can you help with a bifold or hydraulic crane door solution?

10

We are a contractor looking for a price for your bifold strap crane door to install in our customers new building. I would also like a separate quote for you to hang the door. PLEASE call if you have any questions! Thank you - Chad

11

I'd like to know what the cost may be for a 12' wide by 14' high bi fold/lift strap or whatever exterior mounted door you may suggest for a building that will need crane doors. Both of your Schweiss doors appear to be ideal for this type application.

12

I am looking at design options to divide an interior space with a crane door that is 70 feet wide and 45 feet high. There is an existing rigging crane that will occasionally travel back and forth through the area. Is this physically possible with a Schweiss upper bi-fold strap door and two lower hydraulic  swing doors? What are the design considerations that we need to be aware of in order to prepare a budget.

13

I need a revised quote on a Schweiss hydrualic crane  door specs are as follows. 50x14 with one walk door located on left side if facing door from outside of concrete block building. thank, you.

14

Option for insulated panels if you carry them. 3-36"x24" walk door or at least framed openings Able to accept interior liner. This is a crane door, a Schweiss bifold with straps. I looked all over and Schweiss Doors appears to be the only company that specializes in crane doors. One other company said they would try to build me a crane door, but wouldn't guarantee me that it would work to my satisfaction. I can't live with that.

15

Which door opens and closes the fastest? Do I lose any head room with either door? I only have one truss rafter on the end wall how much bracing will have to be done to support either door? This is for a crane door so it needs to be structurally strong like I'm sure all your Schweiss liftstrap bifold and hydraulic doors are.

16

I will be building a soon. I need a quote on a crane  door about 38 x 10. It does not have to be exactly those dimensions. I can design the opening to fit the door. Please send quotes for both types of doors, bifold with straps and hydraulic with Red Power pump. Thanks, Jake

17

I think you might have quoted me a crane door last fall but I cannot find it. It will be a 45' by 18' Schweiss one-piece industrial hydraulic steel door. Could you please resend out a quote? thanks, Dan

18

We have a project where the base bid is to provide a 60x 13.6 hydraulic Red Power crane door. There is also two alternates to increase the width to 65'-0" wide and 70'-0" wide. We would like a quote for price and the design loads to provide the structure with these doors. Thank you

I represent an Engineered Systems team that provides thermal coating facilities to customers globally. We often have a need for indoor acoustical rooms with large custom designere doors to accomodate work pieces to be inserted and removed with overhead cranes. If we could set up a meeting at our NY facility I think our company is ready to purchase some of your doors, we're just not sure at this time whether or not we want Schweiss hydraulic or straplift crane doors. We do want to go with your respected company, because we've seen the workmanship in your product and design.

20

Do you provide some type of information for what is needed for the free-standing header structure to mount the Schweiss Bifold liftstrap crane door to, or do I have to get an engineer for that.

Eastern Vault Comapny is a prestressed and precast concrete producer in West Virginia. We are interested in retrofitting a bifold door to one of our pre-engineered metal buildings. Our newest building, erected in 2007 had one of your Schweiss bifold liftstrap doors installed for our gantry cranes. The door has preformed very well and we are very interested in another unit. The existing door is a sectional overhead door, approximately 20'h x 30' wide. We would like to replace it with a bifold door having a clear opening of 22'h and 40' in width. It would require the external freestanding header.

28

I have a building that I need to have a gantry crane exit and enter. The Schweiss bifold strap door needs to be 53' wide x 40' tall. Looking for inexpensive solution.

29

Looking for solution to replace high lift door with a Schweiss liftstrap bi-fold door to minimize impact on overhead crane. Building is designed around standard high lift door frame opening of 14 ft high x 20 ft wide at 100 mph and an R-Value of 13. Metal building girt thickness is 10 inches with a surface mounted insulated 2-1/2" metal wall panel. Looking for a ball park installed cost at Ft Drum, NY. Also, looking for any information on design loads and location on metal building frame.

30

I need a two fold system. Motorized with safety coordination. A 50' long 7' high crane way door and a 24' wide 30' high sliding door. Can you help?

31

Need to specify 47' x 27' door opening for an industrial fabrication shop. Would prefer an overhead bifold for speed of operation. The above clearance is required for overhead rolling crane operation thru the opening. We are currently in design for this building and would require two such doors before the end of 2008 installation.

32

I need a Schweiss bottom drive bifold door - I believe. It is for a 50'-0 x 250'-0 x 30'-0 crane building. Door is going in the endwall. I need a door that requires no bracing between the first two main frames that would prohibit the crane (26'-0 beam height) from being able to reach the first main frame/endwall. I can't tell if the bottom or top drive doors need any.

33

I need a quote for a 79' wide x 20' tall Schweiss hydraulic door with a sill height 32' above finished floor for crane passage from a metal building endwall. The door will require a remote control, (2) notches for crane beams to pass and an alternate price for Installation (crane rental provided by onsite contractor). The building will be located in Houston, TX (Harris County) using IBC 2003 12/20-110 loads. Also, email and/or mail an installation manual with product brochure and business card. Thanks, Drew

Looking for bids to provide and install a Schweiss craneway door on end of building. Approx. opening is 80 ft wide x 10 ft. high.

We are looking for information on the availability and feasibility of installing a fold-up door on the endwall of an industrial plant that would allow a crane to be removed for installation and servicing. Height approx 40 feet, width approx 110 feet. To be mounted at an elevated location, approx 70 feet above ground. lower portion of bifold liftstrap door would seal at a horizontal wind truss, post framed wall below. Ball Park type budget price would be beneficial to allow client to review feasibility further.
