I want to put a 40ft wide hangar on a narrow lot next to a rural airstrip. My hangar type lot is only 50ft wide but our deed restrictions require a minimum setback of 5ft on each side, thus leaving no room for conventional side-stack hangar type doors. It appears that bi-fold liftstrap is my only option. Unfortunately, the closest electrical service is several hundred yards away! Does Schweiss offer a manually-operated, 40ft wide bifold door? Thank you, Harvey Hartman

Have R&M Steel in Idaho in production for my hangar building and wondering which hangar types work best for your bifold and hydraulic doors.
