What People Are Asking?



Just looking for a quick estimate on a bifold door for a new helicopter storage facility.


Good day we are a christian humanitarian aviation service operating in Southern Africa and are establishing a new helicopter base for which we would like to enquire the total cost of a new hangar. We are looking at a prefab hangar from the US but they (Miracletruss) do not supply the hangar door. Looking forward to schweiss quote, what the best pricing is you would be able to give us. We have a 501c3 in FL which can issue tax deductible receipts. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards Matt Reuter


We currently using the bi-fold lift strap doors from you guys in our hangar. I am looking for replacement remote automatic door openers. We are trying to increase the speed of the doors opening and closing, due to Helicopter EMS operations. Thanks for your time. You can email or call.


I need a proposal and need building loading and attachment details for a overhead hangar door for a new helicopter hangar. Please provide loading/details and pricing ASAP.

Good Day, I would like a Quote on design and installation of a Schweiss Vertical Lift Wall Hanger Door for a new building at the Grand Canyon Helicopter Base in Arizona. And/Or the person or persons that I could send specs to. Thank you, Steve Johnson Loven Contracting


Please text or email me because I have recently had throat surgery and cannot speak yet. I am building a small hangar for my helicopter and need either a bifold or hydraulic one piece helicopter hangar door. The cost may be a determining factor so I need to know the approximate cost of each for the same size door. My main rotor is just under 30 ft in diameter so this will determine the width of the door and the height is under 10 ft. so that will determine the minimum height. I could wiggle it in if it makes a big diffence in the price therefore a 21 ft wide door could work too. So Price both for clear 10 ft high and 21 ft. wide and 30 ft. wide. Also, how long would it take to get one here? Best regards, Ken


We are building a hanger for an A-350 helicopter and need a door 13 Metres wide x 4.5 Metres high. Bi-fold or single, whichever you think best. Power will come from solar/batteries, so I might lean more towards the lighter version bifold door with an aluminum frame.


WE are designing a cold storage hangar for three helicopters and are looking at different bifold helicopter hangar door options.

I spoke with your Schweiss Door reps during the recent Heli-Expo and I am currently preparing to build several corporate style hangars and T-Hangars  at the Space Coast Regional, Titusville Airport. Can you please provide me some information and pricing details, along with some options for design and construction time line for installation? First few hangars are ~5200 sq. feet. The other 2 much larger facilities ~12,000 Sq. feet each. I also have other projects for an A&P school (College) and several DoD projects in the area. Thanks for your time and hope to hear from you soon.


Hello, I spoke with a representative at OshKosh about your bi-fold strap door. I was looking at building a helicopter hanger, but am now thinking about installing a 40x14 door on an existing building and using it as the hanger. The existing building is a steel 60x60. If I install one of your doors will I need to do structural changes to the end wall with an opening for the door or is the framing of your door designed with a header to support the opening? Thank you

I have an helicopter hangar at the Glenwood Springs, Colorado airport with a hydraulic door.  Please advise what needs to be done to put a remote opener on it - thanks in advance.


Our client is building a new helicopter hanger and has gotten a quote for one of your doors and will be installing it when the building is up. We are performing a lateral analysis on the building per the building inspectors request. I need to know  information about when the door can be open below certain wind speeds. Are your doors designed to resist wind loading applied from the roof diaphragm? Meaning when the door is closed and pins locked is the door effectively designed as a shear wall? Do you have any literature of technical data on this if so? Thanks for your help.


We built a new hangar for our EMS helicopter and Schweiss bi-fold doors were installed. We have to hold the buttons down to operate it in either the up or down position (dead man switch). We have the electric photo eye sensors installed already. I was wondering if a remote opening system would be available and how much it would cost. I have limited budget as Base Aviation Manager, but if it's reasonable, I could purchase on my own without corporate approval. Great doors by the way!


I am looking to add on to an existing metal building that I have and am planning on using the additional space to store my Schweizer 300 C Helicopter in it. We currently have one of your Bi-Fold doors at our business where we use it to gain access to our hanger for our Cessna 172 and it works great and it's fast and stable. If someone could contact me about options for our planned addition that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Dave

Provide a Schweiss Door email address so I can send you the details and specs of a bifold helicopter hangar door project in Paris. We are looking for a designer and supplier. 


I am currently in Afghanistan. I'm in design phase with a professional helicopter hangar engineer / designer. At what point do I need to contact Schweiss Doors to build a bifold straplift hangar door and deliver Schweiss aircraft door by early summer? Communicate with me by email.


I need a quote on a 45'x18' aircraft hangar door and a quote on a 54'x18' helicopter hangar door. Owner priced and found Schweiss to be most economical door solution. The 18' is clear door height. He wants liftstrap doors and remote door  openers on these bifold doors.


Would you email standard Schweiss engineering door specs needed to complete the helicopter hanger door design (such as mounting details and forces). Also, what is the required lead time. I would not need the bifold hangar door until ~July 1.


I'm in Switzerland needing a helicopter hangar door for a door client in BC, Canada. All I need at the moment is an door quote by email for a 1) bi-fold straplift door and 2) hydraulic door. The helicopter hangar doors should be thermally insulated doors up to R-20. Clear opening 18' x 70'. 


Google is a wonderful thing. It led me to your door site today. We are at the design stage to build a new emergency service rescue helicopter hanger, either 100 X 100, or 100 X 80. Likely a steel frame. I've looked at Schweiss Door website photos, am totally impressed. Looking at several bifold scenarios. 1. End hangar door - 20 ft high by 60 ft / 70ft wide or 2 X 40 ft. If the post can slide off to the side providing a full 80 ft space 2. End door and side door - side 20 ft high X 40 ft wide. Bifold door  will likely win out over hydraulic door as having the door sticking out means pushing the helicopters back into the helipad area in order to close the door. Shipping cost, if unable to come to Canada, could arrange to terminal in Sumas, WA. Ready for door soon. How does the door covering work, a glass paned door is an awesome thought over a metal skin door with port hole windows. Also interested in keyed cylinder lock pedestrian doors.


Needing a free span helicopter hangar door 100' wide. The steel company is recommending a 70 x 18 Schweiss bifold strap door, but I'm looking for wider 75' door. Also need a 50 x 18 steel door  on the other end. There shouldn't be any concern over putting a 75 ft. steel door on this big building, should there?


I am pricing for a new 100'x125' helicopter hanger door in Arkansas. Interested in a 80'x22' bifold strap door or hydraulic one piece door. Pricing on both types of Schweiss doors. This will be a solid autolatch door with no openings. Thanks

I would like a quote on a 70,75, and 80 wide door. They previously decided to go with the 70 door due to the cost, but the chopper rotor blade width is over 69 feet. They would prefer to go with the 80' door if we can keep the cost down. This will be one of a total of 4 doors. I installed the auto latch strap system and they really like this system. They would like to quote an add for the remote. Thanks Bill 


I have a contractor building a helicopter hanger this spring. I would like a quote on a 45'x14' bi-fold liftstrap door.

The jobsite will be located in Boscobel, Wi. Thank you for your time I look forward to hearing back.Thanks


Dear Sir, We are currently conducting a conceptual study for a helicopter hangar for Statfjord B platform. One of the challenges we are facing is the design of the bifold lift strap hangar doors with autolatches and backup systems. Attached is a 3D model snapshot of the hangar. The opening should be wide enough for a helicopter to pass through without folding the propeller blades. In addition, the doors must be able to withstand wind forces of 2.9 kN/m2. Fabricom would therefore like to seek your expertise to provide a technical and budgetary proposal for the hangar doors accordingly. Should you have any questions or clarifications please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned.

I am a structural engineer working on a project for the Kentucky Army National Guard which includes a six-bay storage building for Blackhawk helicopters. At this point in the project's design phase, I am looking for dimensional information for a bi-fold door. The building will be a pre-engineered metal building and I need to know how tall the building needs to be in order to accomodate the wedge dimension of the door above the clear opening height. We would prefer the internal truss (not external) but I do not know if that is possible for a door this size (55' wide x 20' clear height). Thank you in advance for your help.


Our hanger has an opening of 55'5" X 17'11". We currently have a cable lift on a bifold door. We wish to update the door with the Schweiss lift straps and extra remote openers. We are housing an emergency Helicopter service and need a good back up system also.
