Interested in a quote for a vertical bifold glass hurricane rated designer garage door with frame, straps and counterweights. Must meet Dade county code specification. Thx...


This project would need the glass / plexiglass paneled doors. We are in Florida on the coast. St. Petersburg is a peninsula. 1)Are the glass doors wind rated for hurricanes? 2)The doors need to also look good when shut, which door is best suited for the best appearance when in the closed position? 3) This project has a couple opening sizes. Most are 16 wide by 16 tall. A few (8) are 14 x 14. and eight will be approximately 14 wide by 9 tall, or perhaps 10 wide by 8 / 9 tall. We are in for permitting now with the city of St. Petersburg. At this point, the specific door manufacturer CAN be changed exclusively with Schweiss Doors. The need for a door to meet wind / hurricane requirements must be met. As stated, the majority of doors need to be 16 x 16, as that is the size on the plans, and that is the size that was represented to buyers in this development. The preference is for the bifold liftstrap doors to be all glass, if that is cost prohibitive, the fall back would be for the doors to be mostly metal with partial glass for some natural light. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I am looking for Schweiss glass doors for a pool house in colorado the rough opening is 40 ft wide by 16 ft tall. These must be hurricane proof. Not sure if we have windratings schedules to follow in Colorado. Do you know. If so, follow their specs.


We are in the initial stages of a design of a hangar for which we are considering a Schweiss Bi-fold liftstrap door. We are contemplating door dimensions of 11 ft clear height and 45-60 ft width. The door must be engineered for 130 mph sustained wind with C exposure. Given the above parameters for door height and wind exposure, at what width (between 45 and 60 ft), if any, is there a quantitive or qualitative difference in the construction of the door (e.g. heavier material, larger truss, etc). We may wish to design for the largest possible door (within the range specified) without having to step up to that design variation (e.g. material or truss change). We would also like to know approximate distance between clear height and top of the doors upper hinge. Upon receipt of your response, we will submit a request for a quote. Thanks for your help.


I am building in Diamondhead, MS. I need a door that is 40' wide (finished clear opening), 14' tall (finished clear opening). I am undecided on a 1 or 2 piece door.

I am designing a structure that needs movable walls, and I think your doors can do the job if you could give me more tech info, ; the bifold door opening is 18'w x 8'h and the opening is in concrete, col. & beams 16"deep, the door mounting should be flush. 1.Is the depth 16"enough to support the mechanism and still have space for the door to remain flush? 2.When closed is the door designed to resist Hurricane strength winds? 3.Is the door vandal proof ? 4.does the door provide weather protection under normal conditions , No leaks etc.? 5.Can the door act as a temporary roof in locked position, for how long ? What do you recomend for insulation and interior finish to have a wall look when closed? Thanks for your attention to this matter . Each structure will have 3 straplift bifold Schweiss doors and this is going to be a prototype to be repeated, if the price is right. Hernan R. H.

I am in the process of pulling a permit for a hangar in Florida and the designer put your doors on our plans. DO you have Florida Product Approval #'s required for the State of Florida so that we can finish getting the permit from the county. This will be in a 120mph wind zone. Also what info do you need from the contractor so that he may start the order process on his own. I will forward your Schweiss Door info to him.


The Company Las Cumbres Global Telescope Network has an Observatory on Mount Haleakala, Maui and is in the process of replacing the equipment doors with a top quality Schweiss bifold strap door. The door needs to be fully weather proofed, hurricane rated and insulated. This side of the facility is exposed to hurricane like conditions at many time during the year. The Observatory houses a telescope and optics with a value of approx. $10 million. Therefore it is essential that the doors are weather sealed and fully insulated. We've had other manufacturers doors on this observatory in the past and they just don't hold up. I've looked at some of your doors here in Hawaii and they certainly appear to be much better constructed. Cost is a minor factor, quality is a major factor. Please contact me to discuss. Many thanks in advance Mark E.
