I have a 80'wide x 72'long - Steel Master Arch building that was recently completed, and now need a Schweiss door to button it up. The opening can be adjusted smaller, if it means a more standard dimension and lower cost.

I don't know if the one piece or the bi-fold is for me but want to know what it's going to cost me. The cell phone number is the easiest to reach me or email. I monitor my email during the day every week day where as my other address doesn't get looked at daily. This building is not insulated or heated so the door doesn't have to insulated.

33

I am building an insulated farm shop and am wondering in which direction I should go. I am thinking about a 20x40 bi-fold, or hydraulic door. My question is.... will I have the same clearance with the hydraulic opener as the bi-fold or will one be greater than the other. I have been in contact with representitives from metallic, and olympic steel buildings and they both tell me that with a 20x40' door, my clearance will be about 18'. If I go with a hydraulic opener, can I gain clearance or will it be about the same. The door is going to be in the gable end of the building. the building is 80x120' with 20' sidewalls(or 22'sidewalls if needed) the reason that it's an issue is that along with the bi-fold or hydraulic door, there will be a 16x16; overhead door in the same end. If I could get someone to contact me to discuss openings, clearance, and price and just general knowledge, it would be greatley appreciated. thanks.....John

34

39

I have a metal building that I am interested in replacing the track door with a one piece hydralic door. I have not measured the opening but I believe it is 24 X 12 or 14. What would the cost of the door be? The building faces North and sometimes the door track will freeze and need to be thawed. I would consider a bifold or hydraulic but this would bother the actual door height that is already short enough. Devin

40

Metal Building 14 ft ceiling. 30 ft opening need every bit the 14 to get machinery in, so can the door fold to allow that? What do you recommend?

41

I am planning to put a new bifold or hydraulic door of some kind on my metal round-top building on my farm. The building is 46' X 80', I believe. I don't have the measurements in front of me but I will check. The double sliding doors that were originally on it were 22'w X 13'tall. I don't want anything fancy, just basic metal door, no windows or insulation. This is strictly a storage shed for farm machinery. What would your company be able to do in a bi-fold door style and price? I would appreciate hearing from you as soon as possible since I may decide what type of door to purchase before the end of the year. Thank you. Harry

42

We are currently working with Steel Buildings to add a 40X70 addition to our shop. This structure will have the main door in the 40' end much like an aircraft hangar. This building will be used to house our haulers, etc. The largest door they will provide for this building is 20'. Their reasoning is that such door will be comprised of two 10' panels that will each slide laterally 10 feet such that when the door is open the opening will be 20 feet wide. They do not want door panels to extend past the side of the building when open, hence their max opening in the 40' end will be 20'. I would like a price on a 30' and perhaps a 36' door 14' high hydraulic door installed at Ripley, WV. Thanks.

I have a morton pole shed shop. Steel sheets inside and outside. The shed is 48 by 36. The dual sliding doors are insulated for heating. I havent measured yet but i think they are 13ft tall and about 16 ft wide. I was wondering if a insulated bi-fold door with a couple windows in it would reduce the opening and how much? I will measure the opening tomarrow and check. Also wondered what a ball park figure of my cost would be if i install it myself? If this works well the shed right next to this one also needs a new insulated door and it is 13 in hight and 22 ft wide. It too is a morton shed.

76

We just took ownership delivery on a new aircraft hangar at the Tacoma Narrows Airport. The building was built by Northwest Hangars, Inc. We ordered Schweiss doors on both the north and south sides of the hangar (48' wide x 14' clear height). The doors are your bi-fold, bottom drive models. We have two requests: 1. Cost & options for remote control kits (2). The hangar we are leaving has a similar Schweiss door (60' wide) and remote controls (like garage door openers) that I am able to program into my car so I can open the door as I approach the hangar. The remote is in the helicopter so I can open the door as the rotor is slowing down. I have used it for 4 years and it works very well, especially when it is raining. 2. Safety optical eye (scans ~ 6" above ground level) and safety strip (if door comes down onto something). Costs & installation? Our current Schweiss door has neither of these options but they seem like great ideas. Many thanks, Steve

77

Gentlemen, I have placed an order with Mueller, Inc. for a metal building. The building was ordered without a door since my intent is to order a Schweiss Bi-Fold door to retrofit to the building later this year. Mueller's engineer is asking for load data for the Bi-Fold door system. Are you in a position to provide the load information and dimensions I will need in order to accomodate your door system? Specific details follow. Design Wind Load = 120 MPH Wedge dimension = 1 ft Steel tube construction (not aluminum) Free standing header to be included. Bottom drive w/ lift straps. Mueller will frame the opening dimensions to permit your free standing header to be inserted flush with their wall. Your header should accomodate all vertical loads with only the horizontal tipping load and wind load restrained by connections to the building trusses. Given your framing options, I would prefer the smallest section of square tube possible be used for the door panels, consistent with meeting the load requirements. Where some variation in loads may exist due to options not yet specified, just advise the worst case not-to-exceed value for design. Then I'm covered no matter what we end up with. Many thanks in advance, James E. Skinner IMPORTANT The Customer, Contractor, Owner or Building Manufacturer When your Bi-Fold Door is in the full open position, the Bi-Fold Door tends to pull away from the building at the hinge line, exerting considerable horizontal loads on the building structure in the open position. Your building header design must meet standard deflection and strength criteria, both in vertical and horizontal directions to support the Bi-Fold Door in all positions. GENERAL / BUILDING DESIGN CRITERIA - Helpful Ideas %u2022 The building header shall be designed to accommodate horizontal and vertical building deflections to support the bi-fold door in all positions (with the proper lateral bracing) %u2022 The buildings door columns must be framed of the proper design and size to reinforce the opening (with lateral bracing )and to carry all loads and vibrations imposed thereon. %u2022 Schweiss provides the A-1 , A-2 , A-3, and A-4 Spec%u2019s Sheets : Read through & understand them and have your building designed for our door. The Bi-fold should have solid footing / sill directly underneath the door frame and extending beyond the door frame outward from the door to provide a base for the door%u2019s base weather seal also prevent.flow of water (into or Under) the door installation.
