224: DAKOTA HYDRAULIC DOORS

1

We are a consulting company in Sioux City, SD, doing research into the use of horizontal bi-fold doors for a project in early design. Would you be able to provide some basic information regarding the systems you offer for architectural storefront application? Please see below questions. -Size limitations of door panels (currently each folding partition is ~10m high and as wide as possible is preferred) -Size limitations on glass in the doors. Capacity to incorporate custom glass makeups. -Provisions/requirements for air/water tightness (especially at sill). Sill drainage track/locking? Air/water tightness performance data of system if available. -Deflection requirements of support/framing members (expected maximum WL ~65psf) -Operation requirements (doors are intended to be used on a daily basis) -Options for customization (such as adding custom beauty-cap to exterior/interior) -Ballpark cost estimate (based on square footage or per door?) Any assistance you may provide is much appreciated!

I am converting half of a pole-barn garage to a studio in Aberdeen, SD. I want to fill the 9' wide x 8' high opening with French doors & a window. But I would like to have the garage door to cover the new windows when I am out of town or it is snowing (we get some serious cold here). Is there any way to convert the existing three part overhead door to an exterior hydraulic door like awning type set up? (So it would somewhat match other side). Do you provide hardware only for such a door? Any other suggestions.? What is cost of a new door for this application ?

I haven't had the building designed yet, any recommendations?

I live in upper North Dakota and I have an old hangar door that needs rubber seals top and bottom. Please send details and pricing. Door is 43' wide and my biggest gap is 2.75". the frame of this bifold door is made of 2" sched 40 pipe. We have quite a bit of wind here and I'd like to keep the dirt out. Dirt is a problem. Also it is cold here, i.e. -25 sometimes, but I'm a fair weather flyer. I was planning to use 1/16" thick cloth inserted neoprene. 12" wide for the bottom seal, and 9" wide for the top. Do you sell material like this and if so what are your prices and delivery time, etc. Ease of installation would be a plus if you have advice for that, too it would help me with this DIY project. Thanks. Samuel
