SCHWEISS MANUFACTURES TWO STYLES OF DOORS

Hydraulic vs. Bifold
What People Are Asking

23: GENERAL DOOR QUESTIONS

1

My header is only one roof truss with 2X6's attached to it. I do not have LVL laminated truss header. Is that a problem for a big Schweiss hydraulic door?

2

I'm trying to get a vertically hinged hydraulic door in a restaurant/bar project. The problem is, its in Miami-Dade and I need an NOA certificate to use it in the project. Does Schweiss have anything that would make it thru the gauntlet of the permit review? 

3

our company has one of your hydraulic doors for our hangar. is there a hydraulic door maintenance or service manual the door? It's working fine, just want to keep it that way, please let me know.

4

Good Morning: I contacted you awhile back and asked you about how to fix a noisy door in TN. You told me how to lubricate the door. My neighbor and I did that and now it is much quieter. We also found that some of the straps were not of equal distance and adjusted them to make them work more evenly.  I have a 55' door with a strap lift and I love my door. Thanks for the quick door fix up info. Pat

5

I have a schweiss hydraulic seaplane hangar door and the 2hp motor. Wonder if putting a bigger h.p. motor on it will speed up the opening. I need a price quote on one if I can. Thanx many, Dean Snider.

6

Im looking for Schweiss residential home decorative garage doors. Can you ship to HI, do you have stock items or are they custom?

7

I was looking for the Strap bifold type door frame drawing. What is the width of the door frame? I see the roller at bottom is a 3 in. roller. I am deciding which bottom seal will work on our door opening. You have a seal mounted on bottom of door and another one that mounts on the outside of the bottom edge. Our concrete slab is protruding 4 in from the outside edge of the red iron door frame and is flat with the floor grade of the building. We are getting ready to move forward with the door installation in KS.

8

I had just had a hydraulic door installed at my WA  property. I forgot to ask, if I need routine maintenance, is there any one local I can call that can come? I love my door.  Please let me know... Thank you

9

Regarding hinges for hydraulic doors: From what material are these hinges fabricated? Can these hinges be arc-welded to the building steel framework (typical rigid-frame)? Please send answer ASAP. Thanks.

10

Do you have U-Value numbers available for any of your hydraulic door assemblies. I need to know how they may perform in an energy model for a LEED certified facility in RI.

11

I have a Schweiss Hydraulic door on my aircraft hanger on the Shawano, Wisconsin Airport. I needed to replace the upper and lower rubber gap seal and just wanted to commend your company on the prompt response to my request. 

12

Hallo, I'd just like to get a catalog from you. We have been using your hydraulic and bifold doors for the same client in WV a few year ago. We are thinking about using them in the new building. Schweiss doors are the tops.  Thank you!

13

Hello Schweiss: Do your bifold and hydraulic door systems include some type of safety catch (similar to what an elevator would have) to stop the door from falling should there be a system failure? If so, can you provide some additional information please. I've been told that Schweiss manufactures the safest door on the market, tell me why.

14

Why would I buy a Schweiss hydraulic door instead of another brand? I'll be ordering a door by soon. Framed opening is 42' x 12'. I've heard from others that Schweiss manufactures a very well built door, but I want to hear it from you. Thank-you, Paul

15

We just installed 6 bi-folds you supplied at the Watford City Airport in Watford City, ND. we have several clients that want pricing. Everybody likes your liftstrap doors, so do we.   Thanks

16

We are designing a vertical lift bi-fold liftstrap door for an aircraft hanger and want to finish with horizontal metal panels that match those used on the building interior. The question is, can Schweiss provide matching panel installation, or do you just provide the steel tube framework for application of hat channels and metal siding by others? 

17

We have a quote from Steel Structures in Springfield Il. That includes a Schweiss hydraulic or bifold strap door. The aircraft going in this hanger has a tail height of 16' 9". We ask for a quote on an 18' door opening. Is there an industry standard, or recommended minimum clearance for aircraft hangars? Is 1' 3" enough of a clearance? 

18

We had you put in bifold hangar doors around 10 years ago on our t-hangars. I was wondering if it is prudent to have them inspected by your company to make sure everything is still safe with them. If so what would the cost be so I can present it to the airport commission. I understand that parts may be more expense but just your trip down and inspection. We have 3 buildings with 6 bifold doors on each. Have had no problems with the doors up to this point.  Thanks

19

Can the bi-fold liftstrap door be used as commercial garage entry door which will open and close at least 70-80 times per day? Can we customize the look of the bi-fold door panels? Such as cladding them in glass? How are the maintenance requirements? 

20

We're looking for an owners manual to a Schweiss bifold liftstrap door. Model # S 5373 Serial # G9L212290 If you could email it, that'd be great. If there is a charge let me know, and I'll give you cc info. Thanks.

21

We have a large (55ft) Schweiss lift strap bi-fold door on our building located in South Louisiana. It has been in service for 6 years. Can we have the door inspected and maintenanced including changing the lift straps if needed. Does your company provide this service or is there a qualified vendor you would recommend to do this work? 

22

My name is Robert, a Lieutenant in the New York City Fire department. A few years ago we noticed that a new style door was installed in our area. We spoke to the owner of the property with our concerns of gaining entry to the building with the bi fold doors closed in case of fire. He assured us the gates will remain in the open position because the store is open 24 hours. I was recently contacted by another officer in Brooklyn who noticed that a building in his area was being installed with a similar door. I would like to speak to a technical representative, if available, to discuss this matter further. I think the design is great but we are not used to such a high quality door/gate. Our SOP for gaining entry to buildings with traditional roll down gates is by cutting the gate, the one we have in our area looks to be made of 1/8" steel face with 2" steel framing along with electrical wiring for lights Any information would be greatly apreciated. Thank You

23

I am working on a project that is using one of your Bifold strap doors. It is a metal building with a 28' door on each side. This is not going in an endwall like all of your details show. This is going in the sidewall between the mainframes. The mainframe spacing is 35' c/c. Do you have any details for this condition? On an endwall condition you brace back to the next mainframe. Do I need to have an extra beam between the mainframes to brace back to, or do they brace back to the roof purlins? 

24

I am considering building a structure with two eight foot flush mounted bifold liftstrap doors (or one 16 foot bifold door) on the gable end of a building. I am considering building the structure with SIP panels, with a center load bearing ridge beam with a post in the center of the gable end. Would this design present problems for a flush mounted bifold door? What sort of re-inforcement would be recommended for the gable end of this structure?

25

Your website indicates you provide on-site training for facility maintenance of bi-fold doors and hydraulic doors. We'd like to take Schweiss Doors up on that. Let us know your schedule.

26

 I have your one piece Schweiss hydraulic door, 18 metres x 5 metres. I open it to the point where the hyd. door rams are horizontal but now need to open it more so the door is horizontal. The hyd. pressure was 1100-1200 PSI so I increased the pressure just a little bit and now have a faster horizontal hydraulic door. Is this OK?

27

I have a 40 X 60 ft steel building. I want to install a Schweiss bifolding steel door in the end of the building, utilizing the max width I can get out of the 40' end. Will this take slight modification. What are your door recommendations?

28

Looking for the list of qualified door installers in Washington state for when my Schweiss bifold ampitheater door arrives in April.

29

Can you tell me how to adjust your Top Limit door  switch setting for a Schweiss bifold hangar door which is 18' high but which I set to stop at 14'. I now need to get it to open to maximum height. The door is your bifold remote door with lift straps.

30

Do you have a certified Schweiss door service technician that can inspect industrial factory doors on an annual basis? We have several 30 w X 15 h bifold doors that we are required to have a "factory" safety inspection on. Let me know our options, we can perform the door inspections ourselves if we know what to look for. 

31

Wondering if you ship to Canada, and if you have a local Schweiss Door representative I can speak to for technical residential home door details. 

32

Just to let you know, our Schweiss 50 ft, 2 motor big hangar door opened like a charm in our unheated hanger. It was -15F. But wondering if we should we change the hangar door lube to a lighter grade? Hanger should be heated soon.

33

I'm looking at a steel truss hangar door with a Schweiss Straplift & Autolatch Bi-Fold door that has the header attached within the front truss. Is it possible to widen an existing hangar door 2 ft.? The vertical structure on each side appears to be easily moved out 12" on each side. Current hangar door opening is 35'.

34

My door is bifold Mod S12: No 19 : Ser 9331. I need a top rubber seal because my door and building were spray foam insulated. I want it to be a clean looking Schweiss door like it was before.

35

We sold a 30'x16' hydraulic general use door that was just installed. The customer is wanting to know if he should have "diagonal and horizontal" door braces on it. Are they necessary on a small door?

36

Can you to join us in Vancouver for the largest gathering of the Canadian Helicopter industry Annual Conference & Trade Show. Many of our pilots are interested in your Schweiss hydraulic and bifold strap helicopter hangar doors.

37

I have two Schweiss strap door motors on my hangar. I would like to do periodic hangar door maintenance service on the system and the door hinges. Can I do this on these Schweiss low maintenance doors?

38

Is there a door safety device to keep cables taunt on a Schweiss bi-fold door like your lift straps or latch strap doors have? If not, I'd like to convert my cable door to liftstraps. Can you provide a price for a door strap and autolatch conversion kit? Door is 38'x14' hangar door.

39

What is the lead time required for you to install the bifold shop doors you quoted for me?

40

Our building does not have ceiling height or I beams above the museum door opening beyond 24", how do we avoid the use of the "lateral brace"? Is there a beam dimension that we could use as a header to eliminate the brace?

41

The Schweiss airpark door owners at our airport are trying to schedule a group hangar door service call to conduct ongoing preventative maintenance for their hangar doors which are both bi-fold and hydraulic one piece doors. This can be a webinar door call or by having a factory door rep here.

42

We have several of your Schweiss bi-folds on our hangars. Do you have a suggested checklist for annual maintenance? Our first door is now eight years old and hasn't given us a lick of trouble. We'll be your customer for life.

43

Great Schweiss bifold door but just need to know how high I can adjust the opening. Best website I have ever seen in my life. Now I know why many want to know the last 200 questions someone asked. Your whole website answers most any questions anyone would ask. Thanks Minny

44

Dear Sir/Madame, I am an architecture student from Hungary, and I am working on my thesis in this semester. I would like to use your bifold strap hangar door in my building, but I couldn't find any drawings that I could import to my programs. How can I get one? Would it be possible to send me some drawings in dwg, or pln, where the dimensions are correct? I would be really glad!

45

We recently installed three 24 meter wide bi-fold doors for hangars at an Airfield in Brunei. This project is for Shell Aviation. I am required to turn over electronic copies of all manuals, installation manuals, etc. Where can I find .pdf electonic copies of the manuals? If possible can your attach them to an email?

46

I'm an architecture student from the University of Auckland and am interested in using your product for my architecture design, was wondering if you had a revit/autocad file of the Schweiss straplift bifold door? thanks.

47

We purchased some Schweiss bifold liftstrap doors (job 20319, Dallas TX) and they were delivered about a week ago. Do you install? How much would it cost to get these installed? I was hoping I would have the time to install them myself, but things suddenly got busy around here. Doors look great.

48

We would like a catalog or brochure from your company. We are a design/build firm in California and have been getting more projects lately. Our firm is interested in working with you in the future and would like some information to show our clients. We've seen a couple of your Schweiss bifold strap doors, but would also like information on your Schweiss Red Power hydraulic door models.   Please mail the requested information to the above address. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you, Christine

49

I am getting ready to order a 60' by 120' building and am in need of a 55' wide by 16' high clear span door. I am currently looking at a single panel hydraulic door so that I can keep my building sidewalls to 18', but I realize the bifold doors are cheaper and impose less stress on the structure, so I'm not sure if paying for a higher sidewall to accommodate a bifold is worth it. Could you tell me what the total frame requirements would be for a bifold door that offers a 55' by 16' clear span opening? Any input on one vs the other? I am fine with a Schweiss bifold, but am trying to keep my sidewalls of my hangar as low as possible so that the size of the hangar does not overpower my house that will be nearby. Your bifolds do come with liftstraps, correct?

50

Could you give me the pin placement on my Schweiss Bifold door so when activated the door will go up w/o holding the open switch. I don't want the door to close unless the button is pushed for down. SCH-5-21-W-70-1 Thanks 

51

Which of the door types have the most clearance, Bifold or Hydraulic, and which one is better in the high winds of Kansas?

52

Hi, please can you tell me if you have an Irish or UK agent, We have your liftstrap bifold doors on our Hangars in the states and want to install a couple overseas. Your doors are everything and more that you told us about them. Thank you.

53

Thanks for faxing the quote to Bob, we need to know if you can mail us some brochures, we are out. thanks Deb. Also, we are getting many inquiries on your Schweiss Designer and Glass doors. Can you send some more brochures on them as well. 

54

I have one of your Schweiss bifold strap operated doors, 45 ft wide, bought about 3 years ago for a hangar. It's doing fine, but I have done no maintenance on it, and don't seem to have any guidelines on what should be done. Particularly, I'm wondering how often the hinges should be greased, there are grease zerks on the hinges. I'd assume you have some info on this? I sure love this liftstrap quiet running door, never poses any problems.

55

Hello, I am a member of a Hangar Association that has 14 T-Hangars all with Schweiss Bifold liftstrap doors at Merrill Field in Anchorage, AK. Is there anyoneyou recommend to do preventive maintenance here? Also we are looking at setting up a maintenance program. What is the time interval you would suggest? We all REALLY like the bifolds with straps, they are hands above some of the cable doors we have here. We are discussing retrofitting all our Schweiss cable doors with straps. Keep up the good work.

56

We have a Schwiess bi-fold door already installed and I am tasked with its upkeep. However the owners maual has since been misplaced. If I could get a copy of a sevice manual for model M30 COBRA serial number 10086 that would really help me out. thanks for your time on this matter, Billy 

57

To whom it may concern I am a Grecian University student of architecture and i am interested in your product bifold liftstrap Schweiss door for my project title. I need information about this system product and if possible drawings of the component parts. attentively

58

My self and the 1st in station visited a hanger in Ottawa with your bifold straplift doors installed. They appear to be very impressive in their design and operation. One concern we have is their ability to withstand high heat should there be a fire in the hanger with the door open. I am not sending this as a complaint, simply clarification so that we can take the necessary steps to keep crews out of harms way in attempting to extinguish a fire in this building in the conditions I mentioned above. Is there anything that would hold them up should the straps be exposed to high heat and what is their approximate rating? Thank you very much Denis, Safety officer

59

We are doing work for Customs here in Arizona, and we need the serial number for the hangar door. Where can we find it, and is there anyway we can get a copy of our ordering history with your company so we may see if it is documented in our paperwork. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated before our door gets ripped off and stolen! Thank you for your time.

60

We are interesting in using your Bifold or Hydraulic one piece door product for a new building. However, the door is on a busy pedestrian street, and we would like more information about the speed at which these doors typically go, and whether or not it could harm pedestrians. Thanks!

61

I would be very interested in becoming a dealer for your doors in our area. Please contact me. I have several customers considering putting in your fine Schweiss Bifold's with liftstraps and hydraulic Red Power doors.

62

At this time looking for information and catalogue on both doors please forward sale person information so that I can contact, looking to show our customers your liftstrap bifold and Red Power hydraulic Schweiss doors. Thank you.

63

I own a Schweiss bifold door with remote control. Can I program the remote to open the door with a single, momentary press of the open switch versus holding the open switch until the door is fully open?

64

We purchased a hangar door from you for our Boeing project. It was purchased on our PO 280.621333. I am doing my closeout on this project and need a copy of your warranty. Please email to the address above. You people at Schweiss Doors have been a joy to work with. Your knowledge of doors is the best in the business by far. And what great doors.  Thank you.

65

We are interested in the ability to increase door size and expand our product line. Possibly becoming a dealer/distributor. I believe in my metro area, I could sell dozens of your Schweiss designer doors. I would be willing to come and meet you at your Minnesota factory.

66

We purchased a Schweiss Bi-Fold strap operated door about 5 years ago. The contractor that installed it thought I should lubricate some of the rollers and bearings, but I have no information in this regard (i.e. type of lubricant, means of application, which items involved etc.). Just wondering if this is necessary. By the way your door is operating perfectly. Sure like the straps, much better than the cables.

67

I am a steel building contractor and have had some interest in your Schweiss well built hydraulic doors. Do you have any dealer information I can get or do you sell factory direct thanks. I'm seeing quite a few of your hydraulic and bifold doors in northern Minnesota.

68

Hello, We will be building a Wash Bay/ Semi storage shed this spring and are looking at Schweiss one piece hydraulic doors as options. We would have 3 of them around 24 ft wide. My question is how do your remotes work? When we pull the truck out to take off can you just hit one button and take off or do you have to hold a button until the door is all the way shut. Thanks

69

We are metal building contractor in east central Iowa. We have customers interested in your doors. Most of them really want to know about your new Red Power Pumps on the Schweiss Hydraulic doors, others are showing great interest in the lift strap Bifolds. Can you give me a call, I can supply you with some names and phone numbers so you experts can better describe your Schweiss doors to them. They are coming up with questions I can't answer.  Rick

70

Please email Schweiss bifold and hydraulic door standard head sill and jamb details as well as product data sheets. Our project is located in Fairbanks, AK so we're specifically concerned with thermal resistance. Feel free to call with questions. See tons of your doors up here. Very fine doors!

71

Pricing a building that is 16' tall with 4" borrowed from available height for concrete floor. Do we have enough head clearance for either unit? Customer indicates a need for 15'x30' door, with a radio operator. Has formerly had one of your bi-fold lift strap units and says he will buy from no other manufacturer because your doors are the best. This unit will be insulated. Do we any special provisions for that on either?

72

My customer is purchasing the door direct. Customer is in Dodge City, KS. I need the specs to price my building for his door. He told me you have given him a price, but not the specs for design. If you can find his bifold quote that would help, if not I know it has a 24" wedge and we are doing a 40x14 clr opening. Thanks for your help..

73

Please provide me with an email contact so I can send you an RFQ for a Bifold door project I am bidding. Thanx

74

In addition to a quote on your bifold doors, was curious if you have any contractors local to West Fargo, ND that you work with so I can get a quote on a complete building.

75

Are there safety features built in to your bi-fold doors to prevent a door from falling down in the case of a cable or lift strap breakage. I hear Schweiss Doors are the safest doors on the market and have numerous backup systems in case of electrical blackout failure.

76

I NEED TO GET A COPY OF THE INSTALLATION AND ADJUSTMENT INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE STRAP AUTO LATCH WHEN YOU SHIP THE LATCH. 

77

Morning Guys, thanks for the latest contact I have just returned the information today, the reason for a bit late is that I have just returned from the city of Melbourne after doing a builders Expo, had a lot of great and serious interest in both your doors. Seems they were impressed with the Red Power pumps and liftstraps that set your doors above all others. What I will also do guys is that when this first order comes through, I will purchase the next lot of catalogues from you, I will put through money to cover me for at least 30 catalogues, I am sure Mike does not like giving things away ha ha , anyhow I think we are really close now in doing some serious orders, talk to you soon.

78

We are still in the design phase right now, but I am in the process of working up the specifications for the Project Manual that will accompany the drawings for the bifold and hydraulic Schweiss Doors and motors. Could you please provide me with an architectural specification in Word format that I can use for our Project Manual? Please call me if you have any questions.

80

108

Hello, I have a Schweiss bi-fold door. In the instructions it says you should check the gear box oil level. Looking over the gear box there are several potential gear box screws to check gear oil level. The manual does not indicate which screws to check or in what position. Please help. Thanks Larry C.

110

My building is 50ft wide and the post at each end are 6x6 wood pressure treated. The end walls are not enclosed yet but the side walls are enclosed with alum siding. The floor is already concreted so installing a header for your door will be a challenge. The side walls are approx 13' tall. I do not need a door 50' wide but per your advise in this website, 30' may be too small. So, I am guessing a 40' opening would work which would give me 5' on either side of your door for additional bracing. I do not know what the height is at area as I am unable to measure in my present condition. I am assuming it is between 14' to 16' high at the edges of the door if it is centered in middle of the 50' opening. I am afraid to ask what you recommend but I really dont know what size to get. I have been looking for a door for about 4 years now and so I am really not in a hurry. thanks, cj

Good Morning, Hope you had a Happy New Year's. I'm presently leasing a hanger for my Mooney with a bi-folding door. My door faces north so it doesn't get any direct sunlight. The bottom of the door has a hollow rubber seal that sometimes freezes to the concrete floor and has to be released by one method or an other. Since you are in the bi-folding door business, I thought you might have an answer for this problem. I was thinking of a variety of methods, since I own an independent oil & gas equipment marketing company and have to do this kind of thing in other applications, of some type of de-icing fluids or heat-tape applications. If you have an solution to this problem I would be very interested in purchasing it and marketing it to other pilots that have this problem. Thanks. God Bless & Happy New Year! Kent G. B.

122

Do you sell direct or do you have suppliers in the Kansas City area? If I were to give a potential client your information could he buy direct from you?

123

Hello, The door would be located in Lovelock Nevada. They use IBC 2003 code with 85mph wind.

I have been servicing hangar doors @ SBP for about 15 years, My local supplier of 1/4" cable went out of business, do you know where I could find about 3000 feet? Thanks,Eric.

125

I belong to a 100-year-old church, which has two sets of solid oak double doors. There is a considerable gap between where the two doors meet, which allows a substantial amount of cold air to enter. We don't have the funds to replace, or repair, these doors, so I'm trying to find an inexpensive way to correct the problem. My first thought is to add a strip of insulation along the vertical edge of each door, but I don't want it to look tacky. Do you have any suggestions as to what type of insulation would be best in this situation? (The set of side entrance double doors is 8' high, while the main entry set of double doors are 12' high.)

126

Not sure if Creative Door Services have an account with you, but I did have an old brochure. If you have any up to date sales catalogues or brochures that I can submit to Architects, Engineers, and General Contractors, that would be appreciated. I have one project that requires bi-fold doors at this time. North West Terminal Bi-Energy. Original door opening requirements were spec'd to be (1) 12'0" x 12'0" and (1) 12'0" x 14'0". Sizes may vary at the time of order, according to site dimensions.

127

Hi I resently had a hanger constructed by Lowepete Const. useing your doors here in Juneau Alaska, my question is should my bottom seal be made up of 2 peices, Lowepete has installed my bottom seal made up of two peices and if not do you have new seals available.

128

I am interested in the bottom rubber option/feature. I have an automatic pool cover that, when covering the pool, leaves a ~3" gap between the 4" square end tube and the concrete. This allows leaves and debris to enter the pool freely. I am looking for an item that can be attached to the square tubing and close the gap. It must be flexible to slide across the concrete, but stay in place when the wind blows. I would need a little over 16' of the product, and it would be shipped to Pendleton, Indiana. Cost? Thanks for your help... Darren

140

I recently received a phone call form a gentleman with your company inquiring as to when I would like my door shipped. I managed to delete the voicemail accidentally. I would say that the schedule looks like the door would be needed sometime during the first week of October, although the schedule is somewhat indefinite as I have not received plans from my contractor for building permit submittal. Please give me a call to discuss further. We could wait until I submit my plans and then go out 3 weeks or so. I expect quick building permit issuance. Thank you, Tom M.

Hi, Julie and Mike! Were you wondering if I forgot? Was nice to see you both the other night at the OP. For Tootie too. Wasn't a real fun trip for her so she was glad to just get out for a little bit and see some people. I took her back to the Cities that night. She stayed with Wendy and went back to Albuquerque on Sunday. Of course, we could meet at the OP, have some supper, maybe a drink or two, and skip the postal service if that works for you. Take care, don't work too hard, and let's hope spring and warm weather arrive sometime soon!! Thanks! Nice website!
