Good Morning, We have a project coming up in Concord NH starting in March with a july finish. The 2 hanger doors we have are; Door #1 - 120' wide by 27' high Door #2 - 50' wide by 27' high They will be the corrugated look, no glass in them.

I am building a hangar and my main requirement is a 40ft by 10ft clearance after door is installed. Currently my leading design choice is a Lester building that is 55'1" by 42' by 12'H (12/4 roof pitch, all metal siding, not finished/insulated inside). I am fairly certain it is wood side column and door will go on end (under peak of roof), and I have proposal drawings with design specs that will confirm. I would like to share them when able. I am not certain whether I want a hydraulic or two piece strap door, nor whether I want (or require) door to be externally mounted or flush/internal. Basically, I want to confirm a door to guarantee 40x10' clearance can be fit onto my hangar BEFORE I sign a contract to have the hangar built. Can Schweiss Doors help me with this? Thank you!

Hello, I work for a company that is considering a move to a new location. The new hangar design  location does not have a large enough opening to allow helicopters to be brought inside. It currently has (8) 16' wide x 20' high rollup type doors. Our plan is to have 3 of the doors removed and install a bi-fold style or similar door system to allow us to bring aircraft inside for maintenance. My question is do you manufacture a bifold door that is approximately 55' wide with a open clearance of 20'. We would also like to know if you make anything larger in width which might accommodate our hangar designs needs. Thank you for your time and consideration.

We are working on the hangar designs for a new airplane hangar building, and are looking for more information about Bi-Fold hangar doors.

Hello, I have a 1970's shop North of Burlington, CO. My North facing sliding doors 24' wide x 14' high (outside) have deteriorated and warped to the point of virtually no repair. I am not exploring door options in any sliding or overhead fashion, only bifold hangar designs. Also, the same shop south facing 12' x 12' overhead door probably needs springs tightened or replaced, due to the heavy lift it now requires to open. However, I may consider a replacement on this one too. In order to assist with an estimate, I attached some pictures to possibly avoid a trip out.
