What People Are Asking?

We are designing a Tasting Room for a brewery. We were wanting to have 2 glass hydraulic doors that open into the brewery area. The doors will be on the interior. One door will be 14'-0" wide by 10'-0" high and the second one will be 10'-0" wide and 6'-6" high with a 3'-6" sill height. We want these to be less heavy duty and industrial looking. Questions would be what structure is needed at the head, when the 10'-0" tall one is fully open, how high is the opening and once shop drawings are approved, what is the lead time? Thanks, Jimmy

Hi, I'm seeking budget pricing infomation / quote on a double glazed bifold door simlar to the "designer door" (Red Bull) shown on your web site. The project is in the early design stage and will be tendered in January. We request receipt of your input by the end of the week and would appreciate hearing from you if you have further questions, or if our date is not workable. This project is a go, and is not a paper excercise. Here are some further details / assumptions: - the door is proposed for a music practice and performance facility (marching band at Cornell University). - it needs to have a good weather seal (LEED building) - operational saftey is critical , assume key spring loaded operated switch with photo eye "stop" - given its size (20x50') we assume it would be site glazed (by others?). Glass type will be 1" sealed units with low-e coating and argon fill.


Interested in a quote for a 16' wide by 14' 7" one piece schweiss hydraulic door with glass, hydrolic door for a project in Rancho Bernard, California. Door to be manufactured & installed as a package deal.


I need detailing advice on custom glass doors: for both hydraulic and bifold. Basically, head, jamb and threshold details. Also we need to understand internal door structure as well.


I would like to request a quote on a hydraulic door. The background of my project is an addition to my home, the door would be located in a sunroom that will be an addition to my home. I am looking at a 10' clear opening with 7' height. My real concern is placing this door in a wooden framed structure, 2x6 walls with a 1' lvl header above the door. Is this possible with a hydraulic door or are you looking at beefing my structure to accept a hydraulic door. Another question is I will have a crawl space below my addition where i would like to place the pump for the door, is 3' enough space for the pump unit and all it's componets? My third issue is I would like most of the door to be glass so when closed the room will still function as a sunroom, do you get into issues of the door flexing and possibly breaking the glass? I am just not starting this project, so all the above elements can still be changed, my wife really loves the doors she has seen on the website. so I would like to do my best to accommodate her wants, any help will be appreciated, feel free to email or call anytime. Thank you
