Do you have sample specifications for the hydraulic hangar door that I can incorporate into our bid package to assure our getting a Schweiss door, also does the motor operator come in other volatges such as 120 or 208 or just 220V?

14

Please have someone from your engineering dept. or a salesperson contact me. I have a question about the ability to use a steel column when a wood column is indicated and I want to know if designers are really able to use a wood post on a one-piece door this large.

15

We are designing a new garage/ entertainment space and was thinking a schweiss bifold or hydraulic door would be perfect for what we are wanting. Was wondering how expensive it would be. We will be building the building so could build it to meet the requirements of the door. What is the most economical size door you make? I am thinking a 10x10 would be a good size but if a different size is more "standard" I'd like to know that.

16

I would also like the bolt locations and the weight and Schweiss bifold door reactions for the structural engineer please.

17

February 2, 2011 That quote was for a bifold door measuring 80 ft. x 25 ft. tall. That is the size of the opening. According to your spec sheet A-7 the door will need to be smaller to clear the tapered main frames. Please requote for the maximum size door that will fit in that opening. Purlin spacing is 5 ft. on center so door width could be 70 ft. Eave on the side of the building where the door will be located is 25 ft. all the way across as this is NOT the gable end - side wall NOT end wall. Also, do you provide the stud clolumns, cont. steel tube beam, and both wide flange beam side columns? Did the original quote include installation? Thank you. Doug B

We are working on a a project in Portland. It needs to meet certain criteria in order for it to accomplish its goals. There are certain materials on a redlist that need to be avoided and in order to ensure our project we have to send out a pre-qualification form for all bifold door products in the building. I will be in on Tuesday, however my associate should be contacted on Monday if possible. We are needing to talk to someone before our Tuesday presentation.

25

The door would go on the south end of the building. That is the first place there is a snow drift. If we cleaned out the all we could with a loader, how much remaining snow would the hydraulic swing door be able to push with out damaging it. Is there installation available in my area? When would be the delivery date?
