What People Are Asking?



Do you do these vertically bi-folding doors on a smaller scale? We are doing a back bar area and they want a door similar to what yours look like. It's only about a 13'Lx7'H opening though. The motor and mechanisms I see here would be too large and heavy duty.


I have a customer looking for a hydraulic window wall at the rear of their row home in DC. the opening, which is done in steel beams is 10'-0" by 7'-9". Please let me know if this is a door you can make. Thank you


I am bidding a project that has your Designer door bottom drive specified and am wondering if you would be interested in providing a price?


Looking to build a bifold door for a boat house. Am very interested in using your top mounted strap system to operate the door. My door will be quite a bit smaller than most in the pictures on your web site. Door opening dimensions will be 10' wide by only 8' high. Dimensions are able to be adjusted to accommodate your system. Please advise on best way to proceed. Thank you, Tom


I am looking at your designer doors for a project I have and need more information about the cladding options before I can present to my client.


We have a beautiful custom built home with a large 2-story VT barn looking garage/workshop. The house is 17 years old and we need a better garage door solution. The opening is 14’w x 11’ 8” tall. We’d like to see some solutions that look like barn doors but operate/open with the push of a button. Currently the doors are 5.75” thick and roll sideways open on heavy duty barn slides. Please call to discuss. Thanks, Chad


I need a 20’w x 14’h door, for an RV garage. Straps, hydraulic, etc… I’m not sure, but the best option with the most reliability. We will be putting this in a metal/steel building. We are in our (last chance) final phase of any/all details for the building company to complete the final engineered plans. (We are looking to determine our garage door issue ASAP). You have a garage door (bi-fold) on one of your online photos, that appears to have wood on it (or at least it looks like wood). That is what we would be interested in. We are going for a “barn” look. We also need a 12’ x 10’ door.


I was sent some information on the designer doors for a restaurant in South Florida, and I would like to get more information if you don’t mind. The PDF for the glass door shows a single hydraulic pump for a door that is 10’ H x 14’ W. They marked it up to be wider but shorter. Right now, we have a total of 12 such doors shown, and I would like to know if each door requires its own pump, or will the pump requirements change in order to handle more doors? Can you help me out with the electrical portion of this so I can make sure it is designed correctly. Also, what is the maximum length on the hydraulic lines from pump to door?


I’m building a pool cabana and am looking to make a bifold door for it that is approximately 16’ wide and 8’ tall. I’m wondering about your build your own door kits. Can someone please contact me to give me an idea on cost and the mounting criteria required since my structure is traditional wood framing with lvl beams etc. Thanks Jon


Hi I need a stone clad bifold garage door for a non-air conditioned parking space. Can your doors be clad in natural stone? It would be for a residence in Miami Beach, so it would need an NOA.


Hi, I'm reaching out about a schweiss hydraulic glass door we are trying to spec for a brewery project here in Seattle. The brewery has a fixed existing opening with CMU columns on either side and a steel beam spanning (although we expect supplementary steel structure will likely be necessary). The fixed R.O. we're trying to fill is approximately 10'-5" high x 23'-1" wide. Would you be able to give me some more information on how the frame and glass install work? Additionally, we'd appreciate some pricing and structural loading/deflection we could pass along to the client and our structural engineer. Phone or email is fine. Thank you

It is a wood-framed house with brick veneer on the front elevation and first floor and Hardiboard siding on the second floor on the side elevations.

Thanks in advance for your time.

It's beautiful and we feel very fortunate to now be the ones enjoying your door - could you send me some information about maintenance, upkeep, best practices? Thanks so much


I am interested in finding out more about both of your designer specialty door types for a special application in one of our ride based attractions. I'm interested in better understanding design parameters for our facility based on needing an opening of 7'H min.clear opening (we have 8' between structure) x 48'. Wondering the speed at which this size would open and how much headroom or tieback structure is required. There will be a question of approximate price as there will be three of these for this particular inquiry, this is to compare to our current solution. In future, there may be a requirement for other sizing, but this is a good starting point as a frame of reference. Uncertain if IBeam or Steel tube is more appropriate? Thanks, Cheryl, Manager Architecture & Design

Good afternoon, I really like the custom solutions you have on your website for bi-folding and hydraulic doors. I wanted to see if you'd be able to help me come up with some solutions for a few areas within a casino that need to be closed up at night, but open in the daytime. Currently we're planning on using some sort of roll-down shutter, but it is not visually appealing as a Schweiss glass designer door. I have a few ideas, but want to get you input.


I'm looking for a quote on a Top Drive Lift Strap Bifold door for a  Golf Club project that might happen next summer? I would need to know what I would need to do in advance, to make the opening acceptable for your door?


Hello - I'm working on a retail designer door project where we're considering single panel glazed hydraulic doors, and had a few questions about what Schweiss offers. 1. Does Schweiss deliver a "turnkey" ready door? Or, given that the door is intended to be glazed, will contractors need to attach glazing to a frame provided by Schweiss in the field? 2. We think that hydraulic doors will be a more functional and durable option for the project, but the client is worried that they may be too expensive and is considering sectional doors instead. We're looking to get a rough sense of pricing for hydraulic to move the conversation forward. We're considering about (8) doors at about 20' wide x 10' tall. Would it be possible to get a rough quote for that? I can send graphic elevations of what we're thinking if you need more information. Thanks, Bryan Harry


We are designing a distillery restaurant with (5) 12'x12' operable Schweiss window-walls to create an indoor/outdoor experience. The project is an extensive remodel of a wood-framed building, but much of the new structure will be steel and we intend to integrate the door system with the retrofit steel structure. We also are considering two 12' wide, 6' tall hydraulic operated fully glazed flip-up windows over the indoor-outdoor bar. We would like information regarding sizing of the door structure, associated loads, and details so we can incorporate custom fenestration. We also need pricing information to determine if this concept works within the clients budget. What is the typical timeline for production and delivery after your Schweiss shop drawings are approved?


We are interested in a vertical lift strap bifold door similar to the Barrel & Bushel Restaurant door on your website. This is for a small restaurant in Telluride Colorado.

We'd like an initial estimate for a fully glazed and double glazed 14' wide by 18' high designer bifold lift-strap door.


Interested in pricing for single and double bifold door disguised with either siding or windows. Considering building on zero-lot line plat in Hartness, Greer, SC that is steep. Would want to disguise the garage on front property line. Builder there may also be interested in literature and pricing, as he is still trying to come up with solutions that abide by many design restrictions.


We are interested in your products, as well as some more general information on your designer doors for other projects. For this specific project we need a glazed bi-fold door which is 12'-0" in width and 9'-0" in height. I would like to obtain some pricing information to confirm that it will work for this project. As well, once pricing information is received we will be asking for CAD details to implement into our drawings. Regards

We have a boutique hotel (vertical) expansion project in Madison, WI. The 7th floor (top floor) will contain a bar/lounge, roof deck, possible event space, and a luxury suite. We are considering using designer (glass) bi-fold doors for general access to the roof deck (in addition to normal doors for emergency egress) as well as over sized operable windows or operable walls to open large segments of the walls to the outdoors.

We would like to get any technical information you might have. Structural requirements, allowable wind loads, weather stripping/sealing, energy efficiency, etc.


I have a few sets of Schweiss bi-fold designer doors for a new modern restaurant in the Bahamas. The taller doors sit 13 1/2" in front of frameless glass railing.

I'm a Studio designer. Another designer and myself wanted to specify bi-folding doors for a hotel restaurant we are working on in Toronto. I was wondering if you can meet our requirements and produce some custom-made bifold Schweiss designer doors and windows for us. I can send you reference drawings and images of the type of bi-folding doors we would like to use for the restaurant facade. There will be 2 bi-folding doors, 1 French door surrounded by glazing, and one regular window which will have the same design language as the bi-folding door but be stationary. The full dimensions of each piece will be 8 feet high and 11 feet wide. Please let us know if this is possible and any other information you would need from us in order to establish a quote, lead time, etc.. 


Received your info from Christopher Kurrie at Feldman Architecture. I found a home they did that used a lifting glass door for access to the outside patio.

It is for a similar purpose here in Michigan at our house, to enclose a patio/outdoor kitchen.

We are looking for a large format glass door for a high-end residential project in Brooklyn. The rough opening is 19'-6" wide by 11'-6" tall. The client is interested in both the bi-fold and single piece hydraulic doors. We are still in the early design stages of the project and as such are looking to understand the high-level planning requirements, such as: -Cost for each type of door -Structural requirements (what do we need to provide?) -Lead times -Design process (What kind of contract or retainer is required to start a design process with you? I.e. what is your typical "next steps") This would be a glass designer door similar to either the "Sway" or "Newmarket" doors that you have on your web site. Please let me know if there is anything specific that you need, and if you have any questions/comments. I am available by phone or email. Thank you.

Hello! We have secured a remodel and addition project in Fort Collins, CO and the Architect found your Bifold Restaurant Designer Doors as a potential option to replace four (4) existing windows. The openings are all the same size at approximately 9'-10" wide x 9'-4" tall. We are thinking an all glass option would work well and the space is intended to be a Restaurant so you would want lots of visability. The existing structure is wood framed. Please call me with any questions and thanks for your time!

I have a new hotel renovation project in which we are considering a bifold glass overhead door between the restaurant and the outdoor terrace/patio area. I saw other Schweiss restaurant doors on your website and this sold me on your bifold designer doors.  I would like to discuss our options and products you can offer.

Hello, I am working on a restaurant project that I would like to install a tilt-up Schweiss hydraulic glass window door at an exterior bar location. Does your product have a Florida Product Approval? Thank you, Robert 


Thanks Mike! for taking the time to speak with me this morning regarding the doors at my NV Lounge. I wasn't trying to low ball the value of your product, Schweiss makes the best hydraulic and bifold doors on the market. We are on a tight budget and time frame and are trying to get the best value from an aesthetic/functionality hydraulic door point of view. If we could come to terms on getting 2 hydraulic glass designer doors I think that you could open the door to more business in my IN neck of the woods. These doors would be on display in an entertainment district and for all to see coming in and out of the Casino and arena. This is in the top 5 most competitive restaurant and bar districts in the country. We plan on doing 2 Schweiss restaurant door units right now and then add 2 more in the spring to finish the main bar area. Then we also have the whole second floor which needs all new windows. Its about 80' on three walls that would be done. The columns are brick and the header is steel, it is a brick building. Also could you quote for both 9' and 14' heights


Hi, I see you have installed several of your bifold and hydraulic door systems in a restaurant before? I am looking for a hydraulic glass door system to open up a patio in MA during the summer months but provide some barrier during the spring and fall. It would be great to see some details and if it would work in a commercial setting. Thanks, Kevin


Requesting quote on storefront configuration for retail space in commercial/residential building. Like the unique designer look of the Schweiss perforated steel doors you did in Brooklyn, NY. that provide a nice canopy when open and security when closed.

What is the horsepower for the Schweiss designer restaurant door model used at the TGI Fridays you show on your site? We are looking to get that same kind of door, bifold with lift straps, connected on one side to steel tubes and the other to an existing masonry wall. Specifics and detailed information as follows.


We're looking at three bi-fold lifstrap doors with glass and aluminum framing to secure and weatherproof an outdoor bar. The opening sizes are: (2) doors at 8'6"W x 5'6"H and (1) door at 22'W x 5'6"H. The 8'6" doors are on the sides and perpendicular to the 22'W unit, forming a 'C'channel shape, and when they are open the 3- sides of the bar are open with minimal structure visible (steel tubes at the two corners). I need dimensional information for headroom and clearances and where the operator goes. Any shop drawings you have to share would be helpful, dwg files would be better so I can insert into our drawings. Thanks for your help and I love the look of your Schweiss designer and restaurant doors and hope we can use them.


We are building an upscale restaurant in New York City and are interested in your bifold door and hydraulic door restaurant designer door systems. We have a couple questions. 1. Can double pane glass be installed in these doors? 2. What sort of glass is usually installed in these doors? 3. Can the frame be made of wood? 4. What colors are you able to make/paint/stain the frames? 5. How long is the wait between ordering and shipment? 6. What%u2019s the maximum height and width of separate window and frame units? 7. What is the weight of a full restaurant system, like you have pictured on your website? 8. What is the average weight of the frame? 9. What are the requirements for the mounting spots?

Hello, We are the architects of the USA pavilion for the upcoming 2015 Milan EXPO. Our building design requires two large bi-folding doors (one on the front and one on the back). We would like to start a conversation regarding the integration of these doors in a more detailed way into our drawing set that we would need to issue to the EXPO by June 1st. We are looking for a large expanses of glass panels and to minimize the structure as much as possible (not unlike the doors you did for the Red Bull headquarters). We are also interested in reducing the appearance of the rail where the rollers are fitted into as that seam would split large graphic elements of the design.  I will be able to reply back with images and plans of our design to better illustrate our design goals. It should also be noted that we are also needing to design the Pavilion for disassembly as the EXPO is a temporary (6 month) installation. We will be finalizing the structural design with our consultants in the upcoming weeks and information regarding the loads and bracing required for large moving doors will need to be included in the structural design. I look forward to working with you (especially a MN company; formally from St. Paul myself) in the near future on this exciting project.

Hi, I'm an Interior Design student. In studio we are developing a small project, that is basically a storage room of around 12' x 20'. Still in the research process, I was wondering if it's possible for the Schweiss team to design a 7'x 6.8' bi-fold designer door that will go on an indoor restaurant, hand operated (not electric) with glass and aluminum frame. Also if it is possible, what would be the price if the whole structure material is Aluminum. Thank you.


Looking for an oceanfront Schweiss bifolding door for a small bar. Your liftstrap bifold door folding out and up with autolatches may be a good solution. Owner wants maximum usable width and height. A rollup door is not desirable because we lose 8 inches fromt he concrete ceiling space neededto house the rollup cnaister. Horizontal bifolds and multi-slide windows will stack to one side and we lose counter space. Rough opening for this bar is 115.5 inches wide x 38 inches high. We may consider enclosing the entire bar with your Schweiss wall system glass bifold door which would then make the opening 240" x 125". Please advise me of your thoughts, I know you are the experts. Material made of vinyl panels and a galvanized or aluminum frame would hold up best in tropical salt environment.

Thanks again for your prompt reply to my email. Since speaking with you, I've been kicking around your web page, as advertising and marketing is something I've dabbled in for 40 years, writing grocery ads, television ads for US House and Senate candidates, gubernatorial candidates and state fairs. Hence, it is with some experience that I can tell you that YOUR Schweiss Doors informative Hydraulic and Liftstrap Bifold Door web page may just be the best I've seen in the past ten years. I'm serious. Your page is extremely well-done. (Enjoyed the video that shared the 'boat house' on Lake Vermillion, but it shook up my wife a bit. When the guy started his boat, Sheila heard it all the way from the other room and thought I was having trouble with irregularity.) Your Schweiss Designer Doors are to die for. I'm gonna get you to put together a glass designer wall door for my patio this summer. I'll be getting back to you very soon. Again, thanks...and congratulations on having such an impressive company.


Hello, I%u2019m reaching out to you for information on your bifold liftstrap and hydraulic Red Power doors. I%u2019m on a design team with currently working on an existing commercial office building upgrade in Los Angeles, and we%u2019re interested in using glazed doors to open up the ground level of the building. We will need 12 of these operable doors throughout the project, so we want to compare price and physical compatibility between your products. The office building currently has a 30%u2019 O.C. structural bay, and we%u2019re looking at openings approximately 28%u2019w x 12%u2019h. There is clearance on both the interior and exterior for either a bifold or hydraulic system. We like the industrial feel of the hydraulic pistons; is there a difference in convenience between the hydraulic and bifold system (speed, maintenance, manual operation capability)? Would it be possible to send me all the relevant information you have on these products? We%u2019d like to know about the pricing, weight, and dimensioning of doors in both a single glazed and double glazed IGU application.

Hello Schweiss Doors Europe Representative, I am currently working on a boutique hotel in downtown Villach, Austria. It will have a restaurant on the bottom floor with a pretty large sized takeaway counter/window opening to the exterior on the side of the building. I am interested in a Schweiss Straplift bifold glass garage door for this space. The door will not be the full height. We want it to rest on top of the counter which is at 1.6m ht. Also, the building exterior is an existing brick wall and I was wondering if the door can be placed in the interior of the wall instead of on the outside/center of wall? Is there a rep I can contact for the CA area so that I can send drawings to get a more details on this door? Thanks and look forward to hearing back. Best, Glenda


This is for a future apartment building currently in the design phase. I'm looking for a contemporary look with bronze aluminum frames and clear glass panels. Similar to many of the Schweiss designer doors featured on your website and brochure.

Please provide me the Miami Dade County NOA number for your designer doors (specifically looking for vertical liftstrap Schweiss bi-fold windows for a restaurant) Thanks.


Does your bifold or hydraulic door allow for flush finishes with metal panel both on the buildings and within the system? I am needing for a door with Trespa Panel finish on the exterior with a man door within. Guess you'd call this a designer door. Please and thank you.


I had a few questions regarding the Designer storefront bifold doors. What is the insulation properties on the storefront? Is there a width limit on the storefront doors? Possibly looking to a 50'-0" long by 9'-0" to 10'-0" high opening. When folded what it the height of the two folded pieces? I saw in a few pictures that it does not fully fold. It seems to be positioned in a triangular shape. If we used it on a 9'-0" high opening, would it provide sufficient head clearance (6'-8") when closed? Pricing per linear foot? Safety measures? Is there an emergency stop? Can we get manual? I am assuming the system is hydraulic? Would there be a large price difference if we could get manual? That would be it for now. Looking to hear back asap. Thank you.

I am a designer who is working on an upscale  restaurant project. We are interested in your designer, glass bi folds using liftstraps or possibly even your Schweiss one piece hydraulic doors for the facade, so our client can seasonally open.

I am a designer who is working on a restaurant project. We are interested in your designer, glass bi fold lifts for the facade, so our client can seasonally open. If you can direct me to someone to inquire about the process that would be great. Really like the lift strap idea, it will provide the strength and quietness we need for this project.


I am an architect working on a residential project in Los Angeles, California. We are trying to figure out a way to open up a glass wall in a way that doesn't use sliding doors, rather we would like to use an aluminum-framed glass wall that either tilts up and into a horizontal position or that folds up and into an almost horizontal position, much like the bi-fold liftstrap doors shown on your website but of an architectural character with aluminum frames and glass panels. In the open position the horizontal door would act almost like a sunscreen/trellis. Is it possible for you to engineer a wall/door, made of aluminum 2x 4 frames with additional mullions as required and with insulated  tempered glazing, say 10x12wide by 8x9 tall, that would tilt, all in one piece, up and out and be held in a horizontal position some 8 to 9' above the floor? I see on your website that you have a few bi-fold doors with aluminum and glass but the only outward tilting doors seem to be industrial type. If not a bi-fold door could possibly be used but we would like to explore the possibility of using a single wall-like tilting hydraulic door.


Hello, We are involved in a design to open an exterior glass storefront and create an exterior seating area. Attached is a plan of the area. The width of the opening would be the 20\'-9\" dimension. We would like two bi-fold sections. There are existing steel 2x4 columns at approx 42\" OC. The height is 8ft. We are interested in something similar to the Stanford Ecology Center design you have on the Schweiss website. Can you provide details of your specialty doors along with an estimated cost, delivery timeframe from approvals.


Hello, I am interested in a Schweiss bifold door similar to that shown in the steel mesh or greenhouse frame door for my garage. The rough opening is 16\'-0\" x 7\'-0\". I might be able to get additional height but not width. Can you send me a shop drawing for an equivalent door and other general design info for a door like this one?


We would be interested to specify a bifold liftstrap  door 8\' X 18\', designer type in glass. We also need to get a quote for our client. Please tell us how you would like to proceed. The job site is located in Quebec Canada. If you can install over here, can you ship custom package? Do you have model of frame and system that are adapted for very cold climate with snow? We have a definite idea for the finishes. Look forward to hearing from you shortly


I have a party room or outdoor kitchen and have been looking for some type of doors that will close it up in the winter and leave it open in the summer. We live in the Austin Texas area. There are 7 openings approx. 7 \'22\" wide and 7\'22\" tall. I found your site and noticed the bifold doors and windows that open and fold up out of the way to the top. This looks like something that I could use. I would want some glass in these so if they are closed there is still light coming into the area. What would a door of this type cost. I just need a ball park figure to see if this might be an option.Remember I have 7 openings of approx the same size. Could you email more info and pictures of exactly how they attach and how they might look. I saw the picture of the restuarant bi fold liftstrap windows and those looked great. Could that type of idea be incoporated into a door that would fold up that way.


Dear Sirs, We are interested in your glazed bi-folding lift strap lifting designer doors. Do you do something similar in the UK that would be suitable for a large garage?


Subject: Moerlein Lager House - Bi-fold Door RFQ We are sending you the information we have available for quoting the Schweiss designer style bi-folding doors. The finish is black anodized and there are 3 identical openings (W111, W112 & W113). The plans, elevations, details and door schedule. We are lacking a specification other than the %u201CKey Note #8%u201D on sheet A304 which calls for a Lift Strap Door. We will be installing the rest of the exterior glazing on this project and to make sure it matches we would prefer that you quote your product open for glazing by others. The glass we will be installing is 1%u201D thick overall insulated glass. I don%u2019t know what thickness your doors are capable of accepting but please let me know right away. I will need your quote ASAP and I believe the product will be required early summer this year.


Hi, I\'ve looked through your website photos and really like your designer folding glass storefront systems. Is everything you do custom or do you have glass systems that are prefab? My office is starting on a building project that may have a lot of outdoor space and we liked the idea of using the patented Schweiss bifold liftstrap system. We wondered if there is a way we could get average door sizes and prices so we have an idea of what will work when we get to the point of budget, design details, and specifications. Please let me know if there is any information you can provide.


I am making an inquiry on the Schweiss Designer bifold door series. We are remodeling a hospital lobby and would like to use a glass/aluminum designer bifold door with liftstraps at the entrance to the gift shop from the main lobby. While the door has two purposes - security and to resist passage of smoke (not required to be rated, but will need the weather stripping, etc... that an exterior door would need) Our opening is 12\'-0\" tall and 10\'-0\" wide. Would it be possible to do a face mounted glass (single pane) so that all the structure happens behind? I\'ve attached some sketches of what we are thinking and some of our constraints. Are you able to fabricate something like this? Also how do you seal off the sides of the door?


My wife and I are building a new custom home. We are looking for a unique window (designer door) to put in our new home. We are looking to have a window that is 4%u2019 High x 8%u2019 Wide. We wanted it to be a bi-fold vertical window to allow serving access from the interior bar to the exterior courtyard. I saw on the bifold.com website with lift straps that may work. I am investigating and would like to see if you have something that would fit. I have included the elevation of our house as seen from the courtyard, it is the bottom elevation. I have also included the main floor layout that shows the bar area where the window would be. If you have any information that could help us find a provider of this, or need further clarification, please contact me.


We are Las Vegas based Architectural company and usually our work is related with gaming industry. At this moment we are working closely with one of the properties to remodel entrance doors. The designer series bi-fold glass and aluminum lift strap/autolatch doors, offered by your company, looked appealing and we would be glad to use your product. First of all, please see attached images. Would you be able to manufacture this kind of door? What would be the main aspects I should know before presenting this idea to client? And finally would you be capable to do 3 sets, one next to each other as shown in pictures? As I understand the frame of door has to be continuous so we were thinking to make a slot in floor to accommodate the bottom frame and when its open the slot would be covered manually or automatically. Thank you and I%u2019m looking forward to work with you, Kindly,


Dear Schweiss, We are doing a restaurant in Santa Monica California. We want eight (8) bi-fold doors above an 18" wainscot wall with small member steel frame and muntins. We want to know the sizes of steel frame and muntin for a horizontal span of 8' and vertical span of 6' to 8'. I need to know width and depth of track at jambs so we can size & detail the wainscot wall. Can you send me CAD files of those details? (The bi-fold with liftstraps to be horizontally hinged with clear view glass and steel frame painted black.) Style similar to the two projects below of yours.


Hello, I'm interested in the door you show in the 'Designer' door catalog at Kenyon College, It does not look like it has the strapping that some of the bi-fold doors have. When are the straps necessary and when aren't they? Regards, David Whitfield


We are designing a building in which we are highly  considering using Schweiss designer style bi-fold doors. We were hoping that there is a local rep that could come chat with us about the Schweiss products, especially the auto latches. Our preferred meeting time would be on a Wednesday. Perhaps we could do a webinar or three-way teleconference if that's possible. Call me so we can get something going.  Thanks


We are interested in using vertical bi-folding doors using lift straps at a field house concession area on a new middle school. The doors would be finished in aluminum to match adjacent storefront window framing. The panels would be solid insulated glass with no glazing. Your Web Site Schweiss designer doors got me drooling over the possibilities for our door. But the boss wants to keep them simple, not frilly. Jennie


We have two openings that will be leading out to a outside patio at our bar/restaurant. It is an old brick building (former post office) and are mid construction. They are both approximately 10x10 openings...would like to discuss some of your delightful designer door options like the ones displayed on your web site. When is the best time for me to give you a call. I'm in Chattanooga and I think that is the same time zone as Minnesota. 


Hello, We're looking at ideas for the parking garage/loading dock door gate for an apartment building we're designing in Washington DC. We're trying to find something secure, accessible, and attractive. I found your Schweiss designer bi-fold door photos and particularly liked Target's solution (same issues we're facing) and the perforated still security doors that also function as awnings. We're wondering what the clearance in front of those doors needs to be when they open. For example, if a person walks by or a vehicle pulls up to the door, how far back do they need to be to avoid being hit. This may be a function of how high the fold is. Jon


I am contractor looking for an exterior window that could lift externally to create a more open feeling in a living room. I have looked at glass garage doors etc.,. The opening is roughly 12 - 16 ft wide and 6-8 ft tall. I have some flexibility in these measurements if it makes a difference in the structural aspect of it. I have a second opening roughly 10x6 also. It would need to make proper seal as it is conditioned space on the insideThe window would be butting up against a timberframe. Bart


Interested in bifold glass aircraft hangar doors that I can use for an outside bar. I think I would need 8x10. I want it to have a designer look so when people are sipping a cold one, they can see my restored plane. Is this possible? Please let me know!! Thanks!! Jill


I have an upscale restaurant in NY that we are renovating and I would like to talk to someone about your designer doors, similar to those depicted on your Schweiss Doors web site, to see if it is a viable alternative. Not sure of dimensions yet, I seek your professional input.


I need a retractable roof over a 30'x50' beer garden. This bifold door of yours seems like the perfect answer but I need to know the cost. It could be attached to one side and then fold out so I guess 2 15'x50' sections would be the best or do they not come that long.


I'm working on a prototype design for an high  school, and we're thinking about putting something like your bi-fold doors as an interior divider between a gym & commons space. What are the maximum dimensions (or recommended dimensions) that can be constructed? Depending on these dimensions, we may want 1-4 doors. We currently have a width of 56'-0" and a height of 24'-0" (although we are not necessarily interested in having the door be that tall - what are price savings to make the door 10', 12', 16, etc? I think we are looking at glass door, but also may be interested in aluminum. Advise if Schweiss bifold or hydraulic one piece would be better for this application.


Hi, I'd love to get some pricing info on a custom glass bifold door. This would be for a gallery space in a business & technology building in Hickory, NC. Dimensions would be anywhere from 12-18'wide and 10-18'tall. I look forward to hearing from you and just let me know what other info you need! Thanks so much, Billy Bob


Looking for a Designer Door, 2-bi-fold panel with glass, to use on two exterior walls of our house to open the living area to the outside. Ultimately, we'll probably install 2-4 of these, depending on cost/size availability. We insist on a quiet operating door, I assume the lift straps would be better for this. Looked at your designer doors on your impressive web site, Wow! Schweiss Doors certainly does  quality work. That's what we want.


Would like a quote on two upward folding doors - one is 30 feet long by 10 feet high and the other is 12 feet long by 10 feet high. I plan to use them as interior walls for a conference room and hope to have high quality finishes - either aluminum panels or wood panels. Can the 30 foot door have a swinging door in it? Could each door be built in 4 folding panels? Thanks, Russell 


We are designing a fire station where we would like to use fast opening doors similar to yours. There are four (4) doors, which are 14' x 14' in size. they would be mounted to the exterior to the outside of the building. These are to be highly decorative such as glass and aluminum. Is this an application type you could accomodate? If so, do you have a budget cost for each door? We are meeting with the contractor this week to work through budgets. lastly, do you have a simple borchure you could e-mail on your Schweiss bifold and hydraulic doors  that I can take with me to give to the contractor?


Frame only. We are going to cover the frame with canvas. It is to inclose a resturant patio. Do you do canvas? If not we would consider a glass door or similar fabric. We want a rustic look.


Mike, I am building my 48' x 64 Man Cave this fall, debating on which door to put in. I want a door on the north side to back in a mobile home. so I am thinking a 14' x 14' for that door then the door for my hoist a 12' x 12' door. then under the loft which is the south side of the the shed, a 9 x 7 garage door. I'm leaning toward your bifold with lift straps, but also like the idea of shade that your hydraulic door provides. It's nice to sit under and have a beer on a hot or rainy day. Thanks for your man cave opinion on this matter. I can e mail you more detail plans if needed. Thanks. Jason G. 


Looked at your amazing "Designer Doors" on your web site. We want glass horizontal bi-fold doors with insulate glazing, low E squared. Not sure if the size of doors would requre lift straps, or Red Power assisting. I am indicating two doors, the first is the largest, and the second would be 13' wide x 11' 4" high. We are not sure how many panes of glass the opening should be broken into - what would you recommend?


 Looking for quote for a bifold lift strap unit 8 ft high. Frame structure is 16 ft wide with metal siding so assume 15' - 9" for clear door and frame.

I can send preliminary architectural plans on Monday? Side columns can be either steel tube or wood based on your recommendation. Jimmy

I found your site via Google "bi fold doors). You may be amused that I am looking for a laundry area door, perhaps 4 - 5 feet wide. You don't by any chance make *small* horizontally split bi-folding doors? That would be a really attractive solution! Jon PS. I like your designer doors, might be interested in glass.


Please could I get a price on creating an approx 30" w x 24" bifold doors (similiar to a paneled closet door type bifold fitted with your advanced lift strap and autolatch systems).

Hello, looking to price two doors, bi-fold hangar types: location- San Diego, CA use- for outdoor cafe patio access on nice (most) days. approx. dimensions each- 11'3" wide by 9'6" tall. These are spec'd by a design firm, unknown engineering for the framing at this time. The wall appears to be brick. The existing openings contain aluminum framed windows. Header construction unknown. The open hangar doors will serve as patio covers above tables and chairs. I think your hydraulic Red Power doors provide more overhang, but are they more expensive. You can call me to discuss. Bud S.

We are looking for pricing for furnishing and installing Schweiss Designer Doors on a project we are bidding for the University of Missouri Facility in Missouri. The doors are outswing overhead Bi-Fold doors with electric controls and lift straps. Please forward the appropriate contact information. Sincerely, Bill W., project manager.


Do you make a Schweiss Designer Door that's full view? I want to use it across my store front. It would need all windows in the panels. This may not work if this door is really expensive. My door would be only 9 feet wide by about 10 feet high. Not sure if I want the bifold or hydraulic variety. Let's talk it over, I can send pictures if you like.


I'm currently involved in the design development phase of a renovation to an existing winery in Niagara Ontario, the overall intent is to create an upscale, contemporary image. One particular area of the project scope involves converting an existing shipping, loading dock area to hospitality, replacing 2 existing in-place sectional doors to one wider unit and providing an addition door in an adjacent exterior wall. The building in question and its siting also marks the entry into the winery, so requiring a specific level in quality and a clean unencumbered appearance. I want to retain an informality to the renovated space yet wish to avoid overhead ceiling tracks, unnecessarily dangerous jamb-mounted springs/ door hardware. I would like to incorporate clear glazing panels into the doors. I can provide pdf elevations for review. Need Schweiss recommendations as to whether a bifold or hydraulic door would fit this application best.


I am working on a new project where we would like to use glass bifold doors at the sidewalk retail. I really like what you did with your designer doors on your Schweiss Doors website and think something like that will put a sparkle on my business. What do you need from me at this point?  Judy

We are involved in a new project in D.C. where the Architect is looking to use a bi-fold door / screen element outboard of the exterior facade similar to your job in Brooklyn on Wyckoff Ave. The project is in the early phases, but I'd be interested in discussing different options and costs of your Schweiss bifold and one piece hydraulic  products.  Regards, Silver A. Associate, New York, NY 


Aloha, I am looking at a bi-fold door approx. 14' x 14', bottom drive with lift straps. The look that I would like is similar to the San Francisco Architects projects with a translucent facing. The project is in Honolulu and will be an exterior door. We have a salt-laden corrosive atmosphere and would like to have either an aluminum frame and tracks or a powder-coat finish. All fasteners should be stainless steel. Can you please help me with specs for this door? This is for a commercial project. I'll need keyed access controls from both sides. Can you also provide me with options on the facing? I don't need a quote, as I will be specifying around your product, however, will be bid on by contractors. Mahalo, Sunny B.

I am a graduation student at the Technical Unversity in Delft, The Netherlands, at the faculty of Architecture and Building Technology. For my graduation project I designed a concert hall with folding facades. I found your website and the designer door techniques you use for the Schweiss hydraulic one piece and bi-fold doors. This was exactly what I was looking for. Only my doors are a bit different; they cannot slide over a rails on one side. My question is if I can send you my technical drawings of the doors and hopefully you can tell me if it is possible and what I have to do to improve it. I hope you can help me. Barbara

Situation: Interior construction, 4th floor of existing 12 story concrete and steel building. A gathering room for 250 people must have 2 hour fire rated walls separating it from it's surrounding open office space. We want to put three of the Schweiss Designer Bifold doors, 8' ht x 10' wide (open dim'n) in one wall to open it to the surrounding space under normal operation, but close the doors as need for privacy and for fire rating/fire situation. Can you do this? Have you done this? Thanks, Benjamin


What is the frame built out of? Can I fasten engineered wood panel siding (LP Smart siding) to the Schweiss bifold door?


I am in the process of a custom home design and would like to specify a bifold door. After looking through photos on your Schweiss Doors website. I would like a bifold that is similar to your New York Restaurant Store Front Project. I would like the bifold to be metal frame with glass folding in half to form an awning. I have listed the overall size as 15' wide by 8' height. The glass panels would be best if the bifold door's width was divide in three equal window panels each being approx. 4'6" and then the metal frame using up the remainder of the 15' width! The height of the door could be greater than 8' if the proportions looked correct. I would like to have some sort of ballpark price for this kind of door to determine if it will work with our budget. If the door pricing is close to our budget requirements, we can proceed from there with very specific details! I look forward to your quick response! Regards. The windows for this home will be aluminum framed. The Schweiss bifold door should match this look!

Hello, My husband and I purchased land on Maui and built a 3 car garage like structure to use as our main home. Due to budget limitations we installed 5 regular garage doors and lift them to create an inside/outside living feeling. I cannot stand the look of the garage doors on the ceiling and would like another affordable option. We were looking at your Two Glass Paneled Schweiss Bifold Designer Doors (we would need 5) and was wondering if you could price them for us. If you could please include all costs including shipping to Maui and possibly an estimate on how much we should expect to pay to have them installed. Also, we installed roll down screens on each opening (on the outside). Let us know if you have any options to accommodate screens. Door width and height below may be off by 1-13/4 inches. I will have the exact measurements when you contact me. Many thanks,


I would like some information and recommendations on your designer bi-fold doors to be used as a interior room divider in an architects office. The rough opening is 23'-7"wide x 14'-0" high. The building structure is cast-in-place concrete columns at the jambs and concrete beam at the head. I am considering a metal panel finish - both sides should have the same finish. The door should have some acoustical quality to control sound between rooms. Would this door be electric or hydraulic? I know there are many variables, but what might a cost range be for this size door?

Hello, we are currently exploring different shading solutions for the construction of a large kindergarten project in Canada. The design calls for a inovative way of shading, as we are trying do this without air conditioning. We have established a module for the classrooms, which will have a large glazed front, facing south-east / south-west (9m wide x 3,4m high). We will have 32 of these fronts. The structure will be coreslab and concrete block. Is it possible to clad the bifold door system with only a perforated metal screen, over the width of one module? The idea is to mount hydraulic doors on the outside of the structure, infront of the glass facade and use them as shading screens only. Could you please send me a quote if this is something you can do. Thank you very much


Attended Palm Springs and saw your work at the Palm Springs Resort. Bifold would like the same glazed style door on my property who should I contact? approximate cost for this door? thanks


I want to use bifold doors as a perforated screen in front of a glass wall. I am looking at 20' long by 10' wide, 6 doors total 3 on each floor, or 10'x 10' 12 total. The height could be reduced to 7' if that would reduce the cost significantly.


Hello We are in the design phase for an ocean front home in Hawaii. We are ocean front but do not get any ocean wave spray. I saw the photos in your bifold door designer gallery and I was really impressed. I sent my architect a link to your webpage at the same time he sent me a link. Can these windows stay opened at different stops so that we might want to only have a foot or two at the bottom open to the ocean breeze? Also do you do counter balanced windows that raise straight up? Our opening could go 16' high by 13 ft wide or 8' to 10 ' X 13' if we just did the bottom story.Is it possible to give me a ball park price range (I know there are many variables) for the above size windows made to withstand the coastal conditions? Thanks


Hello, I would like to speak with you about doing a custom door for my motorcycle shop in Brooklyn, similar to this rust mesh door in San Rafael. I would also like to see this actual door. I will be out in SF over Thanksgiving and would like to see this if at all possible. I will be opening up shops in LA and SF next year and will need custom bifold designer doors for those as well. Please e-mail me to coordinate a time to speak about this project.


Hello,I'm looking for a price on a 60' x 18' Clear door for a hanger we are budgeting for one of our owners in Glendale, AZ. I'll need some cut sheets and much info as you can give me. If there are a couple different models I would like to give the owner/designer a couple of bifold and hydraulic door options. Feel free to call me with questions. The name of the Project is ATF Hanger.Thanks Estimator / LEED A.P.


Attached are the latest construction drawings for your use and information (not a completes set removed unnecessary sheets to reduce file size). As discussed we are looking to using the Schweiss Bi-fold door system with a wood slat screen (built by us) mounted to it. The bi-folds to the north will swing out and the south breezeway bifold will fold to the inside of the breezeway space.Also included are the steel shop drawings from Haskell showing the C-channel sizes and overall steel structure we are utilizing. The approximate sizes of the doors would be 10'-6" height and 8'-0" width and would be for 5 total doors including 1 that has a reverse/ inward fold. Also, as discussed today, we are open to using straps, however the door will be more of a "designer" door as those shown on your website. That being said we would like to try to keep the inside part ofthe door as clean as possible, and would like to try to hide the motor and components as much as possible. We were also working with some of the material suppliers to help reduce the cost. Being an academic competition where we work off of a limited grant and must fund-raise all the costs of the competition including materials, transportation & shipping, as well as sending the students to Madrid to re-assemble the house and participate in the 2 week competition. Any help that you may be able to provide will be very much appreciated.If you have any questions please feel to contact me at this email address or on my cell For overall schedule purposes we are looking to ship the house to Madrid in the end of March for the SolarDecathlon competition in the beginning of June 2010. Best Regards, John


I'd like to know if your designer bi-fold door with the glass and metal frame can meet residential code requirements for air/water penetration and U-values. I would consider using this as an opening into a living space. Please let me know if this is possible. On my current project I'm thinking in terms of a 7 to 8' high x 18' to 20' wide opening. Do you have a standard size door that's about this size? Thanks


Hi, I'm an Architect and am doing a studio addition to my existing garage, and will be making some improvements to the existing garage. I've been trying to find an opportunity use a hydraulic or vertical bifold garage door on a project, but have met with client resistance. I'd like to use them on my own project, as it will be a showcase of many design ideas. The pertinent information for a quote is inputted below, but I also want to add a bit about the material. I would like the door to have a spaced 3/4" horizontal stained wood finish, with a painted plywood backerboard. I would like the siding of the rest of the garage to plane out to the face of the door. I hope that helps... Thanks




I have a client that would like to use your doors. The project is on the Long Beach, CA and would require California Product Approval. We would also like to be able to apply a stucco finish to the one piece hydraulic doors. If your product will work for this applicaiton where can I puchase these doors? Thank you,


We have a client who is interested in installing one your bi-fold doors on the interior of their facility. The opening size is 12' x 14'. We had OH Dr. of Covington provide a cost estimate on a door "frame" with a motor but they indicated we needed to provided the skin of metal siding. The metal siding we have to match the wall is 1- 1/2" thick. Is this going to work and can we install this on both faces of the door? I'm not familiar with your doors at all and I've tried to look at your details but I'm still interested.


I am looking for a price for a 9 X 9' automatic bi-folding door with 16 equal glass lights. Your competitions door was spec'd and I would like to offer other options. Please call tomorrow.




I am unsure which type of building I will have but it will be either wood or metal. I will need the spec sheet on whichever I use as to the strength needed. I will be installing the door myself. I want a remote controlled bifold door with straps. Also, I would like to add a wood face to the outside of the door to give a designer look. I want to do this myself, also. All I am looking for now is a ballpark figure using the limited information I have given. I will fine tune the figures with you as soon as I finalize the overall design. Ths, Murray


Hello, I am an imported of Aluminium and Stainless steel shutters in Australia, and am interested in brining Bi-folds in to the country as there are very few suppliers here.

I have priced one job with 2 openings of about 30m x 30m I have offered a fabric shutter typically used on hangers. Is this an opening size you can handle ? if so could you send me an estimate for this this. Could you email me an e-catalog. Regards Joseph

We are working on a house in the Turks and Caicos islands and we have some doors that are 10' high x 12' wide that require hurricane shutters. WE have not found any that are satisfactory until we studied your web site at Schweiss Doors, and were interested in designing our own doors and having you build them. We would like for them to just hinge at the top and be lifted into a trellis condition, the bi-folds could possibly work. But would prefer to try to do in a single piece. Any thoughts? 


I have a 20x12 opening with a specific wood carriage style look requested. The client wants no overhead tracks inside the space. Want to send you a drawing to see if it looks like something you would be interested in supplying a hydraulic Schweiss Door for us.

Hi, I'm looking for an RV garage door and it appears that a Schweiss bi-fold door may work in lieu of the normal roll up doors that look so big and ugly. The proposed garage door opening in 18' wide x 14' high and I'm hoping to make it look more like a normal garage door (18' x 8') with stucco & maybe even windows on the top 6' section to match the home. Can the two sections of your bi-fold door be different heights (6' on top, 8' on bottom)? with stucco on the top section and wood on the bottom that looks like an upper end residential garage door. Another option would be to use a normal RV garage door 18' x 14' and just use your one piece door to drop down in front of the large garage door to create the appearance of a smaller garage door -- your door would only need to be opened when the RV is taken in/out of the garage. This is a residential property and the quality must be very good to be approved by the archetectural committee. Thanks and please get with me soon -- final plans are almost completed and I'm getting bids from several companies. Thanks, Phillip M.


I am looking to have a bi-fold door made of clear glass/lexan type material similar to photo you have in your "designer Bifold Door" section on your site. It will be used in front of showroom.

I need to get preliminary pricing for a Bi-fold glass and aluminum door to be installed in an interior application. Similar in look & feel to the ones you show on your designer doors/specialty doors pages that shows what looks like a conference room. The size would be 16' Wide by 10'-12' tall. I have to verify the final size, but am looking for a quick pricing exercise. I would need two to be installed on conference rooms that are across from each other with an informal meeting area in the middle. The client wants the opportunity to use these as separate rooms or open them up to one large room. I'm hoping you can help me with this. Thanks. Tina Also, have you ever done a hydraulic that would pivot a third of the way down instead of at the top? i need that for another interior job and was just curious. Thanks again.


We live in a Grade 1 listed building in London designed in 1938 by Berthold Lubetkin, a famous modernist architect. We have a flat where the original owner took out the original steel windows and replaced them with PVC. We wish to re-instate the original window design. As the building is listed the replacement windows must be reproduced to match the originals. These are steel windows and can be matched in the UK. However, in the living room there is a long stretch of bi-fold window consisting of 6 windows (folding outwards) each window (glass) measuring 189" (480 cms)height x 28.75" (73 cms) wide)width a 4cms bar betwween each end and between each window excluding narrow window frame on each. In order to match the requirements for Listed (Historic) Building permission, we have to try and match this as exactly as possible which means we have to look for someone who can make a steel bi-fold window. If this the type of thing you make? And if so, any idea of an approximate cost to make and then to ship to the UK? Kind regards, Della R.

Dear Sirs I ordered and have installed one of your bi fold doors.

I am looking for a solution to a two car garage converted recently into an artist studio. Due to architectural review committee oversight and community standards, we are required to keep the standard look of a flat panel garage door. Because of the finished interior space, I do not want to have long tracks along the ceiling in the interior space.

I am trying to get a solution for a reasonable amount of money. Can you give me an idea what it would cost to create two doors for us? One measures 7 X 10 and the other 7 X 9. Also, do you install, can you recommend an installer in our area or can this be installed by a handy homeowner? I can only be reached at my home number. Thank you, db

In planning stage for building a garage for 2 cars and a boat and need 2, later 3, functional, attractive garage doors. I am not sure about the exact size of the doors, only the function. These doors will be seen 24/7 since they will be in a court yard in front of our Lake Ontario cottage. Do you have an e-mailable list of options for design for the doors. I like the no loss of ceiling space feature of bi-fold doors. I had a hangar built by Miracle Truss which included 46 ft. bi-fold door which must have been a copy of your doors. It had cables. Straps would be better according to Mr. Schweiss. It would be appreciated if you could give cost ranges for the doors---just ball park high/low numbers.

We are in the process of building a modern home and are in the need of a door like this that opens onto the deck of our house. These are a much better option than a standard garage door that we were looking at because there is no overhead hardware to deal with.

We also will need 2 garage doors at the same dimensions but probably metal with just a few windows. We have an architect that would be purchasing the doors so if you have a contractor discount if you could let me know what the percentage off would be. Thanks for your time. Kyle K.

This is for an institutional building (college) with a fitness area that we would like to connect with an exterior workout patio. What I like about your product is 1. the bifold when up provides a canopy, 2. it is possible to have a man door in the bottom leaf, 3 it is possible to put a custom finish on the doors, potentially to match the rest of the building. Question: how much glazing can we put it your doors?


We are building a structure for a park/picnic area. We want a building that will house a restroom, utility room, and tee-shaped service/lounge area. A bifold door could provide security and openness, even extending the indoors as a canopy/awning during use. We are interested in a fire-proof value-door for this purpose in the woods. Please call me in Eureka, Montana.
