1

I have a hangar that I am building a living space in to make my home. Currently, there is a metal 10' x 10' roll-up door. I would like to replace this with a Schweiss glass bi-fold door with the lift-straps. I would like to get a price on this. Thank you, Jared

I need a quote on a door for a hangar home being built in Clayton, GA. The header has steel jambs and is in a cement block.

3

I am building a home/hangar on an aviation community in FL & interested in your bi-fold hangar doors. Have had one of your older bi-fold hangar doors on a hangar I bought in '09. Has been working flawlessly. That's important since I plan to retire next year & don't need anything "high maintenance". Catch my drift? John

4

I am in the design phase of a hangar home near Raleigh NC. I would like you input and quote please. Do you have any doors in the area?

Do you install doors to Texas? I live near Houston in a hangar home, looking for a wide bifold door. 

7

Just bought a hangar home w/Schweiss bi-fold door, but didn' t get any mx/operating manuals. Are they available? Really like the door, it was a big plus when I bought this home. The liftstraps are amazingly quiet and fast.

8

I have a customer looking for a 40 x 12 feet hangar home door. I would like some info on your bifold liftstrap fast opening doors.

We will be constructing a new hanger/storage building. We are currently reviewing our options for a 36 ft. tail hanger door. Would you please prepare a price for a 36ft x 12ft bi-fold door.

13

I am looking at a home for sale. It has a large hanger but, not large enough for a Citation jet. What is involved in making a 60' long 51" wide tail hanger home door large enough for a Citation? It has a large apron, so I could come out about 10 feet on the door end, and room to side for expansion. One side would have to be extended. I could extend the hangar home door end, as it will need a new stucco door anyway. Could you help me figure out what size hydraulic or bifold hangar door would need to be and what distance the width would have to be widened. Hoping to not have to widen all 60 ft of the one side. What are the necessary door height requirements for the tail? Estimated hangar home door delivery time to Arizona.

I'm building a new house next fall or early spring. Its a house on the lake, about a 2500 square foot ranch with walkout basement/ seaplane hanger. I have a Maule MX7-235 on Edo 24440 straight floats. Its about 12 foot tall on dolly. Im thinking a door with 14 foot of clearance and 36 foot wide. Wing span is 32 foot. I want a one piece door with several windows and doors. I don't want it to look like a hanger. I want it to look like the back of a house. Can you insulate and put a bunch of windows or are you weight limited. Could you give me an idea of how many windows I could do, and an estimate of what it might cost.... or is this just too heavy. And also it is in Michigan, we have cold winters do they seal up good on sides and bottom when shut.

Thanks for your Info at Sun\'n Fun. Proceding toward hanger home purchase. My 3 possible home locations are: Cypress Lakes Flyin Community, Located in GA Near Savannah, my current home. Please Quote to me, my designer and real estate sales person. Door size 10 or 12 clear opening by 40 or 42 width. I require compliance with all codes, electric opening, and have no preference of hydraulic vs bifold, but my builder and designer mightt have some preferred type. Hydraulic door should have Red Power Pumps and Bifold quote should reflect liftstraps and autolatches.

30

Am building a "toy barn" approximately 40'x60' and need a clear span bifold or hydraulic one piece  door of 29-32'. The largest garage door I can find is 24'. I need at least 12' high opening to drive through when the door is open. I was planning to have 12' walls on the structure, but the building must not be more than 20' high for code restrictions. The door will be on the gable end of the structure. I am planning to use metal for the building - sort of a residential hanger. Who handles your Schweiss doors in the Omaha area, and what would be the ball park cost I should budget? I plan to live here for at least 4 years until I retire, but this might not be my retirement home - so cost is a factor.

31

Hello, I am looking to get some more information from a salesperson regarding your Schweiss bifold door systems.

I would like to receive information on the cost and installation details and specs of a 12'x42' electrically operated Schweiss  Bi Fold hangar door please.

I'm hoping to win the "Better Home and Hangar" award. :) Bi-Fold Door will need a great glass design as well. Confident Schweiss is my solution.

To Whom it may Concern: I am the owner of GE Drafting and Design Based in Dublin Texas. I am in the process of designing a new house/hanger for a client of mine. We are going to be using your Schweiss Bi-Fold doors for the hangar portion. I have been going over your specs and engineering data from the website. We will be utilizing a steel structure for the hangar with Qtr Cut Log Siding on the exterior Face. I have a few Design questions that I need help with. 1. Can we incorporate windows into the top portion of the bifold door. 2. What is your standard Door Height "Clear Opening"? We are either wanting to go 14' or 16' clear opening. I would think this dimension would depend on the tail height of the aircraft to be hangared. 3. Would you recommend a steel building manufacture that you have worked with in the past? Mainly to be more time efficient during construction. Somebody that is already familiar with your products. 4. This structural will be located at Holley Mountain Air Park in Arkansas. 5. Please have somebody call me or email me regarding these questions. Also if there is any material that you can send me, that would be great to. Would you happen to have any of your details on the doors in a CAD format that I can use to specify certian design criteria to the builder. 6. What is the structural load limits on the door. We would like to face our door with Cedar planking. Thank you for your time. We look forward to working with you on our project. 

55

I would like to get a general quote on you doors. I am in the process of desinging a home with an attached hangar. I don't know the exact size of the hangar yet, but would like to design it around a standard size door about 36' wide by 10' tall. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

We are in the planning stages for a new house here in Kaneohe, Hawaii. The house is to be built on a slope with the floor level at 26 feet above sea level. I plan to build a hangar into the hillside with a floor level of 8 feet above sea level, so allowing for a couple of feet for structure and bracing, I am going to need a door that is about 43' X 15' or 16' in size. This will have to be a concrete walled structure since it is buried in the hillside and supporting a house. I want a bifold door or a one piece door with an entry door built into it, and I would like it insulated against the afternoon sun so the door doesn't heat up the hangar and therefore the whole house. It would be nice to have some windows for light, as long as they don't pass to much infrared. I need a door that can withstand a LOT of wind when closed; like 120 to 150 kt. It's OK to have hurricane braces on the inside that are only put up when needed, but since the master bedroom wing of the house sits on top of the hangar, you can see why I would not want the hangar door to fail and let the wind get under the floor! If you give me an email address I can send you a couple of photos of what the end result might look like.

70

We are designing a hangar home to go on an Airpark in France. We need a door 40' * 10' We will need to clad the door with wood to match the house. We have enough headroom for a 2'wedge. Can you give us a ball park cost for a regular bifold please and a guess at shipping cost to Europe.

74

I need an installed price on a bi-fold aircraft hangar door which is part of a residential dwelling in Ocala. Door is approximately 46' long/ 12' high.

75

My firm is designing a "fly-in home" for a client and I have a few questions about your product. Does your company make wooden doors? If not, is there a way to apply some sort of wood finish onto the door? Also, if we were to design our own door with specific finishes or window/door placements would your company be able to manufacture it for us? Thanks for your help!

76

I am building a hanger/home with the opening 40 X 10 clear span. There will be a steel header (to support the house). I am thinking that the Bi-fold could attach to the TOP of the 2ft steel headed...and when the door is opened that the bottom of your door would open to provide the clear 10ft tall opening? Also Can I just attach the door hardware to the concrete door opening (sides)? How much room does the pushrod hardware take away from the side openings (Or is it all straps? Will the door cost be reduced by attaching your door directly to my concrete (steel beam on top) structure, thus eliminating the door frame?

77

Hanger is wood frame construction attached to our home. Mounting style MH (Outside mount) Hydraulic door. A bifold will not fit the building.
