Hi, I'm soon building an aircraft hangar with a house on the side, and I need a good automatic door (length 12m x height 3,3m minimum). I need it to be well isolated because the inside will also be inhabited for a part. I like your bi-fold straplift  model, so could you send me an estimate. Also important: I live in the southwest of France, in an airpark (Biscarrosse LFBS), so how is it possible to mount the door: do you know sub-contractors who can do it, or is it possible to mount by any skilled mechanic or house-builder ? Thanks, Pierre

I am looking into building an airport hangar in S.D. The door opening size would be 19' by 55'. If the door opening is 19', how much is lost with Schweiss bifold door open, vs. hydraulic door open? Is there a door width consideration that would make either design less desirable? How do you handle sales tax on a product shipped from out of state into South Dakota? Thanks. Preliminary response by email would be preferable, if possible.

21

Good afternoon! Just purchased a hanger that i would like to retro fit with a new Schweiss hydraulic door. The opening is 12x40'. There are six inch wide steal beams on the sides and 2 2x6 header. I'm interested in your door because it won't eat up the head room. What would i have to do structurally to have your door work safely on this exsisting structure, built in 1990? thanks.

22

We are looking to build a hangar with a conventional metal roof but with the walls (3 sides) made out of double stacked shipping containers (total of 19' high). I am looking to see if the bifold  Schweiss door would be a good fit for this kind of hangar (both bi-fold and hydraulic) and what additional building requirements would need to be in place for us to install one of your doors. Depending on the layout of the hangar, the main hangar door would either need to be 56' or 64' wide. I would love a phone call to discuss this matter further and appreciate any information you can help me with.

23

Good morning. We have 6 hangers with hydraulic "one-piece" doors we are totally satisfied the hydraulic motors that we are using now. The doors we are putting in are bigger and we are wondering if we should have your new Red Power pump on them. Would the cylinders and resivour stay the same or change? The cylinders that we are currently using are 3 inches thick with a 1 1/2 inch thick rod. They are 77 inches long. The resivour that we are using holds 5 gallons.

30

Need a price on a 60' wide by 18' tall Schweiss hydraulic hangar door. The one that my customer really loves, is the one on your website that has the truss on the bottom of the exterior side of the door. They have seen this door on another hangar. I also need the weight of what this bifold door will be so that I can give that to my metal building mfg. Metal bldg. co. has picked up the panels for the door.

31

I am in the process of obtaining bids for building a hangar. 48 x 54 building. Would like to consider a bi-fold or hydraulic door. The door should be 14 x 44. I will obtain bids from more than one steel supplier. Please contact me at your convenience. It seems that I need to have the requirements for a door prior to discussing the structure requirements for the building. I spent several hours with the Schweiss representative in Oshkosh last year and have spent several hours reviewing various web sites and found your very informative and preparing my hillside for the building site. I would like to complete the structure this summer. or you can leave a message on my cell number. I have completed the questions below. I am not sure about the "end wall" vs. "side wall" question. The door will be on the 48 foot wall. Thanks. Harry Milbrandt

32

36

I HAVE A CUSTOMER WHO IS LOOKING FOR A 64'X14' HYDRAULIC HANGAR DOOR. COULD YOU PLEASE PROVIDE US WITH AN ESTIMATE FOR ONE. THANKS, NATE

37

I am looking for a quote to replace an existing door for the hangar with a Schweiss bifold or hydraulic door. This is more of a request to get "general idea" of what a replacement door, AND SHIPPING, will cost. Looking at your web site, I see there may be a way, to ensure I maintain the maximum vertical opening, at 9 feet 10 inches. I do not want to loose any vertical space at all. Currently, we have a Cessna 177 and the maximum vertical height is important to me. The header is an "I" beam 24" tall with an 8" flange, thus I have something to attach to at the top. Both sides have steel poles, surrounded by 2 x 4's thus an all metal surrounding. Last, do you take credit cards? Thank you for your time with this request.

38

i would like to request a quote for the following: Hydraulic Door(s) for an airplane hangar The hangar size is about 60' wide and 40' deep and between 16-20ft high The measurements are still flexible since the building plans are not done yet.

As an alternative also provide me with a quote for a bi-fold door (same size)
