SCHWEISS MANUFACTURES TWO STYLES OF DOORS

Hydraulic vs. Bifold
What People Are Asking

43: DOOR SIZE

1

I'm looking for quotes on 2 door sizes for both the bifold and hydraulic doors. Most likely we will end up needing a door for 90' x 26' clear opening on a 100' wide endwall. What height will be required for that? Our plan B is for a 74' x 22' clear opening on a 80' wide endwall.

2

We have a Schweiss hydraulic floatplane hangar door with a man door we want to add an additional man door to the hanger door. We just purchased this WI hanger and want the added safety of an other man door on the other end. What sizes do Schweiss entry doors come in?

3

I was told to contact Schweiss Doors because you specialize in large bifold doors in the 90' - 110' range. We are needing a 25'T x 100'W metal door.  If you can do that door, please quote it with liftstraps, autolatches, two walk doors and 5 or 6 windows. Concrete building door.

4

I am sending you door dimensions for the door I am ordering. What is your mailing address so I can mail the bifold door drawings to you. It's 1430 here. Mail goes at 1730. It takes me 30 min to get to the post office.

5

Am interested in prices for a 38 x 18 bifold door as well as any other pricing for "standard" sized bifold doors.

6

There is more than 6' of clearance above the clear height. Would you quote a bifold door for (it would not have to be a full height) as a possible option.

7

Total height of bifold door will be 20 ft, not clear height. Clear height can be whatever it comes out to be. Thanks

8

What is the largest size bi-fold door for aviation pursposes that you have made, or can make? Your material says the doors can be custom-made in any size, but obviously there is some maximum limit in terms of the technology/weight/motor size, etc....or at least some limits in terms of reasonable cost. I've seen doors up to 140' wide, maybe a little wider, but I have seen little in terms of height limits, or at least height limits in relation to width (for instance, a 45' high door might be easy to accommodate at 80' width, but maybe not at 140' width). Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi, You sent me a quote several days ago on 3 32' hydraulic doors. We are still in the planning stages and haven't settled on exact door sizes. Could you also quote me on a 48' and 50' door. Thankyou, John

10

11

i need a quote for a bifold door delivered within 12 miles of here. The door width i need is 30 ft. the clear door height I need is 10 ft.

12

These door dimensions will be total door height. Clear opening height doesn't matter. I just need a 28'-0' total height of the bifold door, so clear height would be somewhere around 26'-0" or so. Thanks, Jeff

13

A few minutes ago, I sent a request for quotes on a 14 x 30 door, (comparing to an overhead). After reading more of your information, I want to adjust my request. I would be better off with a 36 wide. The height of my building will be 16 to the bottom cord of the truss, I would be crazy not to give myself full access. What height door do I need for 16' clear height? Thanks

I am constructing a 40'x60' building and wanting to put a bifold door on the narrow side of 40'. I would like to know about rough openings and height requirments. Are doors customed made to openings or do they come in certain sizes. I would like to have a door up to 32' wide. Any deminsions that would be important a new construction would be very helpful. Building will have 12" CMU foundation with wood walls and brick veneer and concrete floor. Please advise thank you.

71

I previously requested a quote for (2) 125'-0" wide X 28'-0" high doors. I recived that quote today, thank you. For comparison, I would also like to price (4) doors at 62'-6" (or 62'if you only do whole feet) X 28'-0" high. Thank you.

72

Our current door is 50'2" x 14'6" clear height (16'8" opening). We are contemplating replacing it with a 60' x 16'8" door to allow usage of our hangar for today's airplanes. Do you make the modifications necessary to convert our opening to accept the 60' door? I can send pictures for your inspection.

73

Do you have standard bi-fold door sizes or are they all built to order? Looks like I'll need at least 62' min width and 16' min clear vertical opening. Will likely want "strap" system. Also, what are provisions for insulating the door? Is there a significant cost savings if the door width is 60' or less? Might consider a door opening of 60' X 18' as option. Thanks, John

74

I'm putting up a building with a 60' by 20' opening and need a quote on a door. The building is 60' wide so not sure exactly how wide the hole is.

We currently have a roll up door which we have had lots of problems with. The door is going to have to be replaced or repaired agian for the third time in 5 years so we are looking for an alternative. I can provedie pics of the building and existing door. Unfortunately we are in a time crunch becuase it is the door for our dyno bay. We need to maintain the head room we currently have and have no room for the door to open inside the building which is why we went with a roll up door in the first place.

We have some information on a door quote by Jeremy R. for Arctic Fox Builders for a bifold hangar door. On item C, the quote states that total height opening is 20'-0". There will be 3" thick insulated metal panel building siding attached to door frame. Will this encroach in upon the 20'-0" clear opening stated on your spec sheet? Will the door being provided open up any higher than the 20'-0" clear opening stated? The hangar serves DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft- the tail of that plane is 19'-7". If we loose 3" out of the 20'-0", the tail of the Otter is within 2" of the overall clearance- which is a bit tight. Please email your response- and I may follow up with a call. Thanks- Michael
