What People Are Asking

193: ELECTRICAL LIFTING DOOR POWER

1

We recently flooded during Hurricane Harvey. Our motor for our hangar door did not work at first but has started working again. I am relieved that it is still working, but I would like to get information on purchasing a new motor, just in case.

We purchased 2 Schweiss bifold strap doors a few years back, we are finishing the interior space now and we want to know if we can add stainless steel metal siding to the interior side of the residential doors. We don't want to have issues with additional weight. Will the electric motor on there now have enough door lifting power with this additional weight? The 22 ft. x 14 ft. insulated doors are foam insulated doors.

Interested in a quote for a electrical lifting hydraulic pump shipping container doors or bifold lift strap container doors to retrofit a six foot wide double end steel container. Are they all spherical bearing doors?

I am an electrical engineer working on a new building project. The architect specifies a Schweiss Bi-Fold strap custom designed door, 14' high, 30', insulated. I have 120v, 208v, and 480 volt power available. What voltage do you recommend for best lift? Provide motor HP, full load amps, and a recommended door breaker size?

I have an existing wood building with three sliding doors with an total opening of 21 high x 26 wide. What will it cost me to replace with one bifold liftstrap electrical lifting door.

9

I had a Schweiss bifold industrial strength door installed in 1999 (G339); 46'X 12', Wedge 30" internal truss; 220 Volt. I'm interested in converting my Schweiss door from cable to straps w/auto latches and a faster lifting motor. Do you offer installation, or just the "kit"? Is there any sort of trade-in allowance for the Schweiss electric motor presently installed to lift my door? 

10

Information on converting my non motorized hangar door to a electrical lifting motorized strap door. Door width 38.5 ft 12 high uses 2 1/4 in cables and a counter weight system. Sleek frame construction 1 1/2 box door tubing works well.

11

We have a bi-fold door and over the past few months, I've come out and seen the door open a few inchs. I'm guessing that someone here close by has a remote opener that is reacting to my door. If I trip off the power, it doesn't do it. Can the code be changed? I really don't use the remote control like I thought we would, another thought, can I just remove the antenna? I'd prefer to change the code if possible. How can I do it?

12

I am trying to provide my contractor wiring details, could please provide the power requirements and wiring diagram for the Schweiss liftstrap/ autolatch bi-fold doors? Any recommendations as to how to connect a senor switch if we were to close the door during high wind speed?

13

We've been working with a company and their electrical lifting airport hanger bifold door for a while now that has existing cables and pulleys. The parts are beginning to become high maintenance for our customer and they are looking to invest in the Schweiss lift strap system that can retro fit to their door if possible. The door is 60'0" X 20'0" roughly. What size motors would you have for this door, we want one with fast lifting power.  If you have a job inspection form that needs to be completed, please email. Or if you need to schedule the inspection yourself with our customer that would be fine. We have never installed the lift strap system and it may be better for a professional hanger door technician to install. If you have any questions, please let us know. Thank you, Scott Mason

Also, how much does it cost to convert my current 30' bifold door to new nylon strap auto latch and more powerful electric motor for faster lift in cold weather?

16

I have bi-fold electrically lifted cable operated door on my 60x40 aircraft hangar in Tucson Arizona. The door has been installed for over 5 years. The door appears to be operating normally. However, I have seen your Schweiss liftstrap operated doors and I would like to convert to them instead of cables. How do I install it? Can you send me a conversion kit with instructions. How much extra for auto latches.
