Hi I am looking at building a hangar home in Montana and looking for a bi-fold door that would work for my Bonanza and Cessna 180.


I am planning a hanger house at the Lakewood Airpark in Lakewood Wi and need a white 12’ x 38’ insulated bifold door. I would like a price for the door and a price for installation and an estimated wait time. Please call if you need more info. I have an electrician who would provide power to the door control switch. Thank you.


Hello, We have a big project in Brasil. We build a hangar home airport with 270 hangars. I am surching for a company which makes bifold doors. I cannot found a brasilian company. So now i have the idea to make a deal with your company. Would you give me a call, so we can talk about it.??? thanks in advance


Looking for a 50x12 bi-fold door for new hangar/home construction (not started) at Massey Airpark in Edgewater FL.


I’m planning an Airpark home build for myself and am looking for some rough estimate costs on a bifold door with the lifting strap system. The hangar will be steel construction and am looking at a 50’ door width on the 60’ side of the 50’ x 60’ hangar/garage combo building. The door will not be centered as the first 10’ will be vehicle garage parking with separate entry doors on the 50’ side, if all this makes sense. I don’t have architectural plans yet so not sure of the door height yet. I want the hangar to be 2-story height (min 20’) so if there’s a standard door height for this width then I’d like your recommendation. Thanks in advance.


I'm beginning the early planning for a hangar house and would like to get some rough costs for a hangar door. Thanks, Mike


I’m looking at installing a 40’ bifold strap door on a new custom build hangar airpark home. See link below. What are the dimensions of the door frame needed to install your door? I’m having the plans modified and need your door install planning info. Thanks in advance. AH


Hello, I am developing a hangar home and was recommended by the aviation community here to go with Schweiss. I'm unsure which style I would prefer so please send me a quote for the strap lift bifold door and the hydraulic power lifted door. Thank you.


I'm planning a hangar home in FL and would like talk to you about hangar home door options. I like the Schweiss Korthuis RV Garage door maybe something like that.

Can someone contact me through the email above so I can send the bifold hangar home door plans we've got?


Was wondering if you install bifold Liftstrap hangar doors for residential customers, and any in California? I have a home that has an original solid garage door, but the door into the house prevents me from installing a conventional sectional door (track would be too far into the doorway and would pose as a hazard to tall people). I've been looking for several years into any alternatives, and this looks interesting. Thanks, Eddie


I am designing a metal building that will be used as a hanger/residence. The client want to use your hydraulic or bifold lift strap door system. what is the standard door height that spans 40'? Please price in delivery costs and three bifold door windows


Hello, I'm currently in the design process for a new house hangar on an airfield and looking for a quote and technical specs for bi-fold lift strap private airplane hangar doors. Planned start of construction is spring 2022. The hangar exterior walls will be made of ICF, 6" concrete, and a steel "I" beam as header. Best regards, Francois Viau


Hello Schweiss Doors! We will be building a home at Stearman Estates in Benton, KS (1K1) in 2022 and are considering a Schweiss bifold bottom-drive auto latch door for the 50'x 50' hangar. We are still in the design phase of the house/hangar with the builder currently suggesting a steel frame, but we have also seen wood frame/truss hangar construction in another house in Stearman with a Schweiss bifold door. We are interested in any pricing information you have to share. Please let us know the details you require in order to make an estimate/bid. Thank you, Steve and Kim Gyuro 425-512-4100


Hello. We’re looking to build a new home and hangar at N40. Very early stage but want o get more info on the hangar door and the design/order process. We have a Cessna 182, would like to future proof it a bit for a larger aircraft or the possibility to have 2 aircraft come in and out. Hoping you can help guide us with experiences from your other customers. I've heard you can make your bifold and hydraulic hangar doors wider than 100 ft.


Looking for a 40 wide 14 - tall door . Home hanger not much use without a good Schweiss Bifold . What is most economical one you design ?


I am in the process of designing a house with a hangar attached. I will be ordering one of your bifold liftstrap and automatic latching hangar doors. How much space is needed on each side of the door? If I get a 38’ wide door how wide does the entire wall need to be? Could I go ahead and get a quote on a 38x12 door?


Hello. I'm a developer on a 100 home hanger home community, and will be needing hanger doors on all. Looking specifically at your bifold lift strap doors, but may need a hydraulic hangar door in some instances. Can you send me catalog of options and pricing and let me know if you offer discount prices for a large order like this. What is your turnaround time?.Thanks


Have a hanger house with a hanger opening approx 36 x 8 foot. Height on my plane is 7.7 foot. Looking for a hydraulic door to put in the opening so I don't lose any headroom. Opening is concrete with a wood frame that is currenlty configured as a two car garage. Mike Minor


In initial planning stages of a hangar home. For the clear opening size specified need to understand the cost difference of each option as well as the frame requirements for each option.


We are working with 3 other partners and looking to build a 4 unit hangar condominium. Each unit would have individual ownership, so we will need 4 bifold apartment/condo doors in total. One of the owners is looking into a Phenom 300, which has a 16.5' tail height, so would need a 17' opening. I am thinking 60' width on all 4 would be sufficient. I will yield to you on what we will need as far as building height to accomplish this.


we are in the very early stage of planning a new construction hanger house using one or more of your liftstrap hangar home designer doors. the hanger will be like a walk out basement, with concrete on the other 3 sides and house above. Not sure on the size-- wondering what is some standard sizes. 40x ? As i said, this is very early planning stage trying to get an idea of cost and sizes. the hanger will be for 2 airplanes, supercub and cessna 185. thank you


I'm working with a contractor to build a 42x55 hangar home bifold door on our property. They didn't have a source for a bifold or hydraulic door. I'm looking for an approximately 40'x12' door. Is this something you can sell direct to the consumer, or would my builder need to contact you? If you have pricing available, please include that as well.


Phone call or email is fine. Looking for a budget number on a 50' x 16' hanger home bifold strap door that will be glass.


I am going to be looking to build a residential aircraft hangar home in the next 3 to 5 years. Was looking at possibly using your strap door. I was wondering what an approximate quote would be on a 35 foot bifold hangar home designer door. I was also wondering if your doors work /fit better on any specific hangar builds / brands. Thanks for any information / direction you can provide. Vin


Door on this hanger home is home made. If I purchase the hanger the door will be replaced. I currently have one of your bifold strap doors on my hanger home.


I’d like an estimate on what a 40’ bifold strap door for a house with detached hangar I’m having built at 1K1, Stearman Field, in Benton, KS. Will want photo eye sensors and remote opener.


We are starting a new Home and Hangar wood framed will need a bifold liftstrap door by end of April . I am the real estate broker


We are a Butler PEMB dealer in the Chicago area. We are quoting a small hangar/residence building in Genoa, IL. The owner wants a 40' clear width and 14' clear height bifold strap door. I believe there are several types of doors. Would like you to recommend the best solution, which after looking at your website I would presume to be a bifold liftstrap hangar home door. Project location is Aero Lake Estates Genoa, IL. I need to know what height is required for the door opening in the endwall of the Butler Building. I am currently working at home so please call my cell number. Thanks.


Can you give me the approximate price for a bifold door with straps, for a hanger home that has a 40' wide by 12'6" high opening. It would need a frame to support the door. I would get a local contractor to install it, if you have a installer in this area, I might use them. What does a typical install cost?


I sold my hangerhome a few years ago. It had one of your 40 bi-fold cable doors. I am getting ready to build a new hangerhome on a different airpark. Is 42 feet a standard size for your doors? Which is more expensive: hydraulic or bifold? This time around I would prefer using your bifold strap system.


I am currently working on the design stages of a airplane hangar attached to an existing house. The client has expressed interest in having the bifold liftstrap hangar home doors clad to be "hidden" with finishes to match the rest of the home. Is there any place I can find specifications on how this is done with your doors, the maximum weight of the finish, etc.? I appreciate your help with this. Thanks, Tim


I need pricing and specs for a 40'x14' bifold for a customers hangar home door. Thanks, Cory Smith


I need to install a residential bi-fold hangar home door in Houston. Do you have representatives in Houston ? I need a quote for this type of door. Please, every communication must be through my email. Thank you


 We have a Schweiss 17x60 bifold with strap door on our hanger now. I am building a small hanger at my house. Looking for a 45x14 (14' high clear opening hangar home bifold strap door., width can be 44) bifold with straps or a hydraulic hangar home door. Open to options and suggestions. Location is Franconia NH 03580 and we have 90 mph wind design loads for buildings. I will most likely be a wood building. Could you provide some pricing for basic doors and costs for some of your options. Thanks, Thad


Is there someone in the Dallas/Ft Worth area that can come out and take a look at my existing bifold door on my hangar home? I would like to keep the bifold door if at all possible and replace the cables with straps. This has certainly been a great door that has worked very well over all these years.


I am looking at your Superstructure design for this door system. This is a hangar home door for a client you and I have built for in the past. They are in a new airpark community living home. Their hangar has a very unreliable and difficult operated cable-type door with a top guide track and bottom roller support track that is roughly 46' wide by 14' tall, with one third of the total width encumbered by the bypassing sections. They really need the full width and height of the opening, so your Superstructure hangar home design would work great if possible. Wind speed is 130 mph with a "D" exposure. The new door will have vapor barrier insulation and an interior light gauge metal liner panel to around 10' on height. The exterior will be sheeted with a 26 gauge metal "R" type panel.


I had called about a month or so ago about my hangar bifold doors. I purchased the home last year and there is no documentation on the doors as to recommended maintenance, oil to use, etc. I was told  The house was built in 2002. I have a large aircraft bifold door with straps and a regular car sized bifold door with cables. Unfortunately there are no data plates on the doors other than your company name. The large door has two red motors and four straps. The small door a single red motor and two cables. Although these two hangar home doors are working just fine, I just want to make sure I maintain these doors properly. Thanks.


I have put my UK cell number down as I'm currently traveling in Europe. This also has Whatsapp. We are builders in central Florida for a residential airpark for which each home will have a minimum hanger 40 x 40 ft. I would like discuss your options and costs mostly on bifold strap lift hangar home doors. If we can arrange a time to speak I will call you to help with costs and time difference. Regards, Paul


Hi, I am currently designing a Hangar house and am looking at Schweiss bifold hangar doors for the project. A good friend has used your system on his hangar house. He had it shipped here to NZ and it looks like it will do the job well for me. The design I have for the hangar is using a steel portal frame structure which will ultimately support a house on top. The opening for the hangar will have a 450mm deep I beam for the Lintel across the span of the opening and has supporting I beam steel structure to hold the Lintel. The base of the lintel and supporting steel leave an open area for the hangar door of 3.2m high x 12.0m wide I am also considering a Schweiss hydraulic opening single door arrangement with locking pins and I envisage a horizontal line of windows in the panel mid way up the door. I would also like to consider the option for a normal size door opening incorporated into the hangar door. This initial contact is to determine: [1] rough idea of the cost, [2] what additional mods to the steel lintel need to be made to support the hinge structure and door loading weight on the existing portal frame, and [3] I am wondering if the door can be easily shipped from USA given I live in New Zealand. Additionally: How much open space [3.2m x 12.0m] will I potentially lose with the dimensions of any supporting frame? What are the dimensions of the door header and thickness of the supporting posts? Do you have some supporting .pdf for the construction. Probably best to get me on email first Kindest regards


Hello, We're looking for a general contractor in the Tucson, AZ area with experience with your hangar home doors to quote a residential hanger build. Please send any recomendations. thank you, Jason


Trying to estimate a bifold hanger door cost that will be attached to a new home. Hangar home door will need to be 43' wide x 14.5' tall.


I am planning to build a home, together with a hangar. The plans are preliminary at this point. I will meet with the builder shortly. I would appreciate a rough estimate of the cost difference between a bi-fold door and hydraulic door. I expect the hangar opening will be 40' x 12' clear opening before installation of the door. Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.


I own a hanger home that was built in 2003 with a bi-fold door that was made by another manufacturer. I am having problems with the brake and the Power Master control unit. I really need to find a person in the Daytona Beach / Port Orange area who can repair this door. Any help you can offer would be great.


We are building a new hangar home spring of '19 The garage (Front) is going to be 36'x 30'. Underneath this garage will be my hanger(the back) for seaplane. It will have the "span crete" for garage floor or hanger ceiling. Im parking a Maule MX7-235 on EDO 2500 Amphibs. I want the door 34x13 on the opening. I would like to know what to tell the guy designing house about Schweiss Designe Doors and  the opening. Wood, cement, steel for supporting the door. I would like all insulated glass with straps. Or maybe mixed glass with facade to match house. I would like a price on door to get started.


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.


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

Building code: 2012 IBC Wind Speed (gust): 115 mph Wind Exposure: C Wind Type: Component for 25' door, Main for 60' door Enclosure: Enclosed (or should it be partially enclosed since many doors could be open?)

Building a hangared home and looking for what sizes of doors are standard as we design our home and pricing for budgeting purposes. Please use email to contact me. Approximate hangar size 45x40 and we are most interested in a bifold hangar home door.


We are soon to build a new home and hangar in Granbury, TX. My first hangar home door! Your bi-fold hangar home door is very popular in this neighborhood. With a 12' tall door, what width increments are available? The maximum width of the new hangar is 50'. Thank you, Bill Boro 


My wife and I are beginning to design our hangar home for Sterling, Alaska. I have a couple of questions regarding your Schweiss hangar home bifold liftstrap and auto latching doors. 1. In planning for electrical service, what electrical service is needed, voltage and amps for a 50 ft wide hangar. 2. Can all of your design information be downloaded from the web? 3. Can you provide the contact for the local or regional sales rep? 4. Do you have a price sheet available to estimate cost? 


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?


I am having a hangar home built, and the hanger door opening is 16ft high x 40 ft wide, would you send a quote for a bifold hangar door the lift straps, could I also have design drawings provided for my contractor?


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


I am discussing the hanger/home design with Morton Buildings, who are proposing a wood frame with steel cladding with a sliding door. Another option is an Armstrong all steel construction. At this stage, the eaves are at 14' to provide a clear opening of 10' under the door and I would much prefer your Schweiss hangar home door style.


We have specs on a hangar home door you priced for us a few months back. Ready to finally go to permitting. Being in Florida we need a Fl product approval number. I was told Schweiss could provide this? I can't find one on the Florida building code website. Thank you.


Please quote on 2 styles of hangar doors, the costumer has asked for horizontal sliding door 44W x12H. I am recommending a hydraulic hangar home door. The hangar will be installed on a 48 x60x14 H pre eng. building. Optional Wood construction. Location is 14 miles west of Thunder Bay, Ont. Single phase power is available. Please include price on battery backup system, remote opener and freight to site. Regards  


Looking for pricing for a residential hangar home  door, 38' wide, strap lift byfold door. Architect has requested your product, do you have a sales rep. in the Vancouver area? Or can I deal directly with you? Please contact me. Thanks.


I would like a quote and specs for a large bi-fold hangar home door. I have 220 three phase available. But would prefer single phase if possible. My door opening is 18' tall and 40' wide. I would like to know the horsepower of the motors for electrical demand. I would like to use the lifting straps instead of cables. I have 3' of wall above the doors. And would like the doors to be on the outside of the building. I do not have the sheeting on it yet so I can make any changes I need to.


Hello - my family is building a house and we are looking into options for a glass panelled overhead hangar home door (approx. 38' wide and 12-9' high).  We require a door that meets our local (British Columbia) building code in terms of R rating. Options so far have been traditional overhead garage doors, but an architect friend recommended bifold liftstrap doors and yours look very impressive. Is there a dealer in British Columbia (or anywhere in Canada) who could provide us with a quote? Thanks in advance, Janelle 


I am considering building a hanger to attach to my home in Immokalee Fla. I would like a price on a door, hydro and bifold. Rated for a 160 mph wind load. 15' clear and 44' wide. Tim


I have a Schweiss bi-fold door on my hangar at a residential airpark, with lift straps, that was installed on my home in summer 2005. It seems to be operating fine. My husband passed away last year and the hangar was his domain. I do not know what, if any, preventative or periodic maintenance has been done or needs to be done on the door. What are your maintenance recommendations?


I am in the planning stage of building a hangar that will be 64' X 60'. The height of the building is what we are waiting to determine. We want to build it tall enough to house a King Air 200 (15' tail clearance) in the future. We are open to input or suggestions as to what will be better for us. (Bi Fold or Hydraulic) The width of the door will be either 52 or 54. The building will have a wood frame for the hangar home door opening. Please feel free to contact me anytime so we can discuss options or suggestions you may have. Thank You, Todd 


Can your Bifold hangar home doors be made with aluminum versus steel and is there a cost difference? Shipping is a large part of the cost of the unit. Is it possible to buy the electrical components and the hardware associated with the Bifold strap doors and build the required frame at a local machine shop? FYI, Your information entry section has the name of our province correctly entered as Prince Edward Island (not "Sound")


For the hangar home door we just ordered, can you include freight cost to Niagara on the lake, Ontario. also if you could include hinge point dimensions and door dead weight, with the wedge depth that would be great to quote the home and door to the end customer. Thanks, you guys (and girls) at Schweiss are always so helpful.


Hello. I am preparing to build a hangar that will attach to our home by this fall. I have a few questions regarding your doors. I will be hangaring a Piper Colt and a PA-12. My ceilings are 12 ft tall and the current plan is for a 40 ft wide door. What size door would you recommend? I am interested in the bifold (strap lift) hangar home door as well as the hydraulic. What is the price differential between these models? Is there a build it yourself kit for the bifold door or only the hydraulic? Also interested in another hangar door for my boat. 16 ft wide by ~12 ft tall. I would like some quotes: 1 for build it yourself doors (16x12 & 40x12) and the other for fully built doors (hydraulic & bifold) of the same sizes. Would it be possible to cut off shipping charges for the build it yourself kits? I may need to drive some other supplies up to AK from down south and could swing by. Thank you


Hello I have a bi-fold door from a different manufacturer on my hangar home with cable that I would like to convert. It is 42x12 door. The current system is cable with counterweight to lift the door that constantly gives me trouble and is very slow to open. Please call to discuss a retro fit!


I am purchasing a home with an attached hangar with a 40x16 bifold electric door (don't believe it is a Schweiss door). I need a local door installer to come out and see if it can be upgraded to lift straps and latches and add remote control. Property is in Fort Worth, TX. Thank you!


Interested in using your designer bifold doors on a residential hangar home project in Houston. I would be interested in talking with a rep about project specifics and required details.


We are designing an upscale home in Annapolis, MD and are showing a lift-strap bi-fold door into an interconnecting hangar. Our intention is to clad the hangar home door using a laminated wood product (parklex) so it integrates seamlessly into the rest of the facade cladding. We would also like this door to be automated when a car approaches and need to show the appropriate details, electrical power, etc. I have a very short window to get this specified property before the drawings go out for bid at the end of next week. Please call me as soon as possible to discuss.


I sent a request to ASI Hangars for a quote. They said I should start with you. What I want is an estimate of cost for a 45 x 14 ft airplane door. Include hydro door and insulation in estimate. I need this information to get some idea of how much money I need to make my dream hangar home a reality. Please e-mail. I do not hear well and it is sometimes difficult for me to have a conversation by phone. Thanks. Stan


Hi - I have a unique residential hangar home designer door application, for which I think a Bi-fold or one-piece Hydro door from your company might work well. Do you have installers/dealers in the San Francisco Bay area that I might be able to contact? Or should I contact you directly? Thanks Rob W.


Need pricing for: Single Fold Hangar Door 28'-0" x 17'-0" This matches a Schweiss door from a previous order.  Our client wants to install this exact door in a new hangar home addition we will be doing in the near future. Thanks!


The architectural style for the airpark HOA is Southwest USA with flat roof designs and stucco walls resembling adobe to match the existing home. I first saw your design in an RV garage for a new home design where the HOA restricted the garage door height to 8'. We have the same problem in trying to get our hangar home aircraft door that needs to be 12' tall. Here is the web page: https://www.bifold.com/photo-of-the-day-washington-rv-garage-door.php


Looking for a hangar home door for either a 42 x 14 opening or a 50 x 14 opening. I'd like to price both a Schweiss liftstrap bifold and Schweiss hydroswing if I could. The building will be in Cleveland, GA 30528. Thank you much! Jeremy


Hello, I have a hangar home with a rolling door that I would like to replace with a bifold door in order to gain a modicum of headroom for my new airplane. It would need a frame as the hangar is not built to mount a door. the dimensions are 50 wide by 14 ft high. Please give me an estimate of costs for this Thanks David C


I'm working on a hangar home mancave for my new residence, and would like to learn more about the doors that were used on many of the elaborate hangar homes seen on your Schweiss doors website. The idea is to lock it down when not in use, but use the doors as a brise-soleil when open. Thanks


I am in South Florida, Broward County to be exact, Do you have any hangar home bifold or hydraulic door products that have the HVHZ Impact rating for large and small missile impact as well as windload rated? Possible with Miami Dade County Notice of Acceptance or State of Florida Approval? Thank you for your time.


Building a airpark hangar home that I need a 14' clearance and the airpark authority will only allow a 16' sidewall height. I am working on an exception but I am interested in your doors. Door opening would be 14' by either 34' or 36' wide. Hangar will be a slab with a wood structure so it blends with house. Thank you,


Hello, I'm contacting you on behalf of my employer Landmarks SGA an architectural firm in Somerset PA. I would like to request copies of any product literature you have available for use in our office. We are particularly interested in anything relating to hangar home bifold and hydraulic door usage.  Thank you for your help.


Looking to build a hanger onto my new home in the next 8 mo. Thinking I would need a 43' or 44' wide door for my Cirrus VK-30 kit plane. Not sure about height. Figure a price for a bifold liftstrap door 12' and 14' tall, with remote opener and automatic latching system. I fly around the USA and have seen your well built doors at most of my stops.   Thanks, Jim


Looking for an hydraulic stucco-clad  hangar home door that can fold down. Putting on existing Arizona home hangar.


Please email info and prices. I need a 12"x 40ft-2in top seal and 12" wrap around bottom seal for my hangar home Schweiss bi-fold door. -Thanks.


We have an existing cement block hangar and need a door for it. Do you make bifold or hydraulic hangar doors that small for hangar homes??? Also do you install up here?? Is it possible to do our own install?? What kind of a price are we looking at??


Please give me a hangar home bifold quote with shipping included. Also, provide lead time. The existing building is block and the openings are existing. I want the doors' material to be glass.


i am looking for a drive-in door for a hangar home  i'm building, ideally about 40'x18' -- probably interested in a bi-fold, but curious about the pricing on the hydraulic. ideally interested in a top-half glass, or door with large windows on top to admit as much light as possible. i'd like to get a ballpark idea of price including delivery to 97834 zip. email is best, but feel free to call on phone if there's any more information needed for this hangar home door. thanks, jim


Planning to erect a steel building (Meuller) for metal hangar home /event space. Looking for very preliminary, approx price quotes for initial planning purposes only: 1) Bifold glass panel door 40'x12' 2) Bifold glass panel door 22'x12' 3) Hydraulic glass panel 40'x12' 4) Hydraulic glass panel 42'x12' 6.


I'm looking in to building a somewhat elaborate hangar home structure that can open up in the summer as a sitting/social area and close down in the winter for storage. The opening door width would be 34'x 16' or 14' as required. Just looking for a ballpark figure to consider as I get into the design. Hydraulic or bifold hangar home doors don't need to be glazed or insulated. Just wood clad, probably some kind of slatted or t&g look.

I am having a helicopter hangar built that is 30' across the gable end and connected to my log home. I am wanting a 28' door on it, so it will be opening the entire front for access.

Hi, We are facade consultants in Dubai and are working with an architect that is trying to achieve a glazed aircraft hanger home door to retail facades.

We have a 35'W x 15'H door opening in Beverly Hills and the owner wants to get a glass hangar home door that bifolds. The problem is it needs to seal because the hangar is an air-conditioned space and it also needs to meet CA Title 24 requirements. Is this something you can do? If so, what would the pricing be for something like this? There is currently no design, so the architect would defer to the manufacturer for all specs and plans. Please email me for further details.

Hi - I am in the design phase of a new home and would like preliminary and budgetary pricing on a basic 30', 34', or 36' bifold hangar home door. (probably leaning more toward 34' due to cost. I don't need too much height, maybe 14', just your average size door to start with and see if we are anywhere near budget. Then we will go from there.

Hi, My name is Dave and a friend of Bob E. A month or so ago he got a quote from you on his hangar home door similar to the ones I purchased from you for my hangars. I am trying to convince one of my airplane customers to go your way for a hangar door at his ranch home in Oregon. Anyway, the hangar is a wood frame with a door opening of 44 x 11 1/2. It will need an external header. He wants a walk-in door probably on the left (facing front), straps and manual latches. Could you work up a quote with cost and delivery to Vale, Oregon as well as estimated delivery time. If you could email the info to me I'll try to convince him. I'm very satisfied with your product (two doors here and one on our leased building in another town at my request). Thanks, Dave Savage

We are designing a new home to be built in Prescott AZ in the next 6- 12 months. It will have a hangar with two doors, one for the plane and the other for two vehicles: An 18 foot wide door for the 2 car portion plus a single hangar home door that is 39 feet wide. Both are 12.5 feet tall. The garage and hangar home doors are on the front of the house which also faces west to our airstrip and the harsh sun at mile-high Prescott. Therefore, we want the  doors to contribute to the house's curb appeal in a big way. We are considering sheathing them with copper, cor-ten steel or some other low maintenance material with high level horizontal windows. We are employing and architect for the design. If you do not serve customers this far west, can you suggest anyone else in Arizona who does custom liftstrap bi-fold residential hangar home/garage doors?

We are loosing our lease on our current building at the airport, the good news, if there is any, is that the airport will let us take whatever we want from the building as it is going to be demolished. Currently we have a bifold door, I believe it is a 45x16, and we need information on disassembley and removal of the door, and if it is possible in the future to have you reinstall said door on a hangar home currently under construction planning, if so what is a typical install price, I am assuming new support structure would be needed. Currently we are only in the planning stage of the decom as we were just notified. Additionally is there an after market retail, assuming we can't find property and wish to sell the door, if we sold it could the buyer use you to have it installed somewhere else? Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tim

Give me a rough idea about the cost (not installed) of a 50 x 12 bifold door setup with all hardware and additional framework. I have a home purchase that I may have to build a hanger for. Include cost of extra remote opener. Lift strap set up. 


I would like to built a two story hangar home. living on second floor. can u send plans/options/prices. maybe 40' x 50' on your Schweiss bifold and Red Power doors.


This is for the construction (not yet started) of a hangar-home at Stearman Field in Benton, KS. Your doors are on most, if not all, the hangar-homes there at this time. People I've talked to really like them and they are very eye-appealing. I'll call with dimensions, etc. tomorrow. Zeke

Hello, We are rebuilding our house and attached hangar which was destroyed in a house fire this past Sep. 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. Our architect is in the design phase of the hangar and it would be a great advantage to be able to incorporate the hangar door details into his plans and drawings at this time. The new construction will be of wood with brick facing and we intend to use steel for door support. Thank you.


In the process of designing and building a custom home in the Erie Air Park. The building structure will be wood frame with stucco exterior. The hangar will have a flat concrete roof serving as a deck accessed from the top main level of the house. Exterior walls of the hangar will be concrete and wood frame with steel columns and girders. The hangar will be excavated into the side of a fairly steep sloping lot. I need a quote for a hydraulic Schweiss door 45' x 15'


I'm in the process of remodeling a hangar my father built 50 years ago and we are bringing the structure up to modern building standards plus, plus. The hangar stores a seaplane with a dolly system to move the plane in and out of the water. The location is gorgeous and the building will have a 4'ribbon of glass around the entire building. 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.


We are interested in the home and hangar plans for the photo you have on your Schweiss web site... third from the top. We own our own airport and are thinking of building a new home/hangar. Where is this home located and do you have the plans for it. Beautiful set up! Thanks,

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. 


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


we are designing a house with a hanger attached to the garage. we need to know the design loads for the door to add to the beam calc.


I have purchased an airpark lot in NC. I currently reside in Colorado but plan to move as soon as my house sells (the way things look could be awhile). I am doing research on hanger homes and I am interested in your products. I have to build a home with and attached hanger and matching siding. I currently have a Cessna 170B but would like to build to accomidate most small aircraft (resale value) I would think 47 foot door opening would be nice.


I have built a timber style home with an attached hangar. I am looking to build a one piece door using aluminum skin on inside and outside with polystyrene insulation sandwiched between. I will then install a decorative wood finish on the exterior. I'm looking for a price quote on these materials. Thank you! Don G.


As the listing Brokers for a new Fly In Community in Coastal Georgia I would like to have some information about your products and their installation/construction. Do you have preferred contractors for certain areas and do you participate in the total building process of hangers and homes. Also would you consider building a spec home or hanger with the owner willing to subordinate the land. This community has a 4,000 foot runway, paved taxi-ways controlled vehicle access, 1-3 acre home sites with protective covenants as well as 35 acres adjacent to the runway designated commercial. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,


New construction, wood hangar with brick attached to home in fly-in community. Contract signed, construction to begin ASAP.

I intend to build a new home on the East coast of South Africa that will include a hangar for my aircraft. I have an RV-10 and RV-7 and the door will have to be large enough for these. Regards, Dave.


Hello. Just starting plans for a hangar/apartment on the back. The measurements are not yet finalized, but can you give me an idea of the cost of the Bi-Fold and Hydraulic One-Piece door for a 12 foot height and 40 foot width? Would need your installation included in the quote. Thank you, Susan J.


We have a client building an "airplane house" who wants a one-piece hydraulic door 45' wide x 15' high. I need preliminary reactions (loads on the building). Wind is ASCE7-02, 120 mph exposure B (16.2 psf). Figure internal trusses. Thanks.


I just purchased a house in Charlotte NC. It comes with an aircraft hanger which is stucco. I plan to use it to store my cars and motorcycles. Your door look very interesting. I would like to get just a general BALLPARK estimate on what a door would cost.


Please postal mail me any literature about bi-folds for aviation homes,as my downloading and incoming e-mail is down at this time,thanks.


I am planning on building a 60'x60' hangar with an attached home starting in the early spring. Please send me information and quote on your bifold door with straps, auto-lock, and remote capabilities.


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.


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.

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.


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!


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?


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


Could you please send me your Schweiss Handbook, I am in the process of designing a home with a hangar and I would like to get the necessary information to my structural designer. Thank You!
