We are raising the ceiling in an old dairy barn 8 feet to make a shop/machine shed. It is constructed of wood using laminated gothic arches. The hydraulic door will need to be 40' long and I will insulate and sheet the door myself. I need 3 window framed in it. Thanks

I have a hangar built in 1988 with a single-piece 39 feet 2 inch foot wide x 10 feet 9 inch high metal door that is currently opened manually. The door is counter-weighted by a Rube Goldberg 3 foot x 2 foot x 3 foot concrete block located on the side of the hangar, connected by cables that attach to the door in three places. Electric power available in the hangar is 30 amps/120 volts maximum. I'd like to replace the door and counter-weight with one of your doors, perhaps a bi-fold. Do you have a solution that would work for me? Thank you! PS: Photos available upon request

I have a barn, peg-beam-mortis & tennon construction circa 1915. It was metal sided in 1982 or so with large sliding doors, and done well. I wish to replace the sliding doors on one side with a hydraulic door that can be operated by the push of a button, with a remote unit and not lose any height of the opening to the hydraulic door itself. The opening is 12'2" high and 15' wide. Your product may serve.
