We are in the design phase of a private residence, and we are looking to use a Schweiss hydraulic or bi fold door at the garage / carport portion of the WA project. We were looking to see what typical details you may have for architects. Some general information is that the primary structural system will be a welded tube steel column and beam fabrication. Our clear opening dimension between the structural tube steel columns is 19'-6, and the clear dimension from the top of slab to tube steel header is 8' to 9' tall.

Looking for general pricing on residential hydraulic doors. Can you send me prices for standard single car garage. 8 x 8 or so. Not sure if standard size is substantially less than custom sizes - we are in pre planning phase on this project so can be flexible. Looking for factory style steel paned (or look alike) door. Also, this is to be used in the house, not garage, so we wouldnt want straps or bulky systems, so if the structure of the system depends on size of door, please let me know those perimeter. Also, curious of general shipping costs to Reno, NV. Thanks!

I'm looking for two residential Schweiss bifold garage doors, approx. 10'W x 8'H, suitable to have T-111 type wood siding on the outside surface. Can you give me some pricing and installer references?

i'm currently sourcing windows and bifold doors for a house remodel. your  Schweiss bi-fold door seems like they'd be a great fit however i'm wondering if the are a bit too beefy or industrial looking for a residential environment. do you scale down your extrusions based on the scale of the door? can you do a bi-fold window? i have two locations where i could possibly use a Schweiss bi-fold door/window: 1) r.o. 13'W x 12'H 2) r.o. 7'6"W x 4'H (window)

21

I am designing an addition to the house to shelter an Endless-Pool--and want the side wall to open entirely in summer, but closed in winter. Your bifold appeals, but this will be in a side wall and the eave drops down to a level only about 5 inches above bottom of header, so doubt there is space for the "wedge". Thus, it looks like the hydraulic door will be a better solution. Door will be sheathed with same wood-product siding as house, but I will want an openable window in it as well (for light and ventilation when door closed). The opening is only 12' wide, 60 inches high. Can you give me a rough ideas of cost (not a "quote" I'll hold you to).

22

I have a typical 2 car garage with overhead doors and openers. I would like to gain the space taken up by the overhead tracks and doors. I've considered horizontal sliding barn-like doors. When I contacted one residential door company, their suggestion was roll up doors similar to those used commercially. Would your bifold or hydraulic doors provide a gain in interior space, while providing the convenience of remote door openers? How does the price compare to regular overhead residential doors?

I would like to inquire about a hydraulic door for my new garage (residental). The garage door opening is ~40' wide x ~10' tall. My new garage is located in MT but I currently live overseas in Africa. As such, I wish to be contacted by a customer service representative via e-mail. Note that I state below the building is wood but the walls are LOGIX concrete blocks and the header is wood. Thanks

53

Do you guys do residential? We have two 8x7 (approx) garage doors that we don't want to have open to the inside. Is the hydraulic an option? Need good insulation for Boston area as well. Thanks in advance.

54

Do you have a hydraulic garage door that would work for a residential garage? It would not need to be opened electronically, as we are using the front of our garage for storage and are building a wall about 3 feet inside the garage door. We don't want a standard door because it would interfere with the wall when it opens up. Please provide a quote for a basic residential hydraulic door that would be 8 by 10 feet.
