86: MACHINE SHED DOORS

1

I have a machine shed with a cement foundation located in Lamont, IA. The south end of this machine shed features a 24' wide x 15' high sliding door that opens in two equal sized parts. I am pouring a floor in this building and insulating the walls and ceiling to make the building into a farm shop. This means the sliding door needs to be replaced with something that is better sealed. One thing I like about the construction of the sliding door is that it provides an opening right up to the underside of the trusses, maximizing the height of machinery that can pass through the door. Do you offer any other commercial doors that would preserve my full opening height? I look forward to your response.

I would like a price for either a Schweiss bi-fold liftstrap machine shed farm door or a hydraulic door. The building is a 60' x 40' building with a door opening of 14'3" x 20' wide. we do not want to lose any opening height, I heard that you lose no headroom with a Schweiss Bifold door. Thanks. Steve J.

Have a rural door owner wants to replace cumbersome sliding doors. Door frame is 89'-7 1/2" x 19'. This is on a large wooden machine shed, so price freestanding bifold door header and two walk doors. Liftstraps only, no cables.

7

We built a machinery shed last fall but didn't put doors on it. After watching the snow blow in to it all winter, we are wanting bifold doors. It is 30x62 and about 14' high in the front. It has 2 posts approximately 20' apart in front. So we would need 3 bifold straplift doors.

8

Hi, I have already your great bifold strap door with autolatch and remote. I would like to have price and delivery for a machine shed door. 50 foot wide 16 high the building had 16' interior. Strap system, auto latch and remote control. We will start build it in three months. 

9

I plan on building a machine shed that has a door on either non-loadbearing end. These ends would be about 30ft wide by 14ft high. I am open to different types of doors, bifold straplift or hydraulic. But they need to be able to accommodate large machines and safety measures are appreciated. I would like the estimates of any doors that fit the bill. I would like to have a catalog if available. Thanks

I have a 45' Schweiss bi-fold shop door. It works great. I'm ready now to order another door exactly the same size for a steel farm machine shed door.

11

Planning for a new farm machine shop door next year. Building construction is currently unknown with respect to steel or wood framed building. Current plan is for a 60x120 building with approximately half (50'x60') an insulated shop door  with either a hydraulic swing door or bifold liftstrap door 18' high by 38 wide. The equipment doors will be on the sidewall of the building. The shop door will have an apron in front of the door. I like the seal and shade offered by a hydraulic swing door, but lean towards bifold strap doors due to heavy winter snow fall, building strength and swing out distance. A lot of work gets done outside the shop door on the apron. I think a Schweiss bifold door would work better if the door needed to be opened with equipment parked outside. I am at the stage where I could design the building around whatever Schweiss door I choose.

My farm is in Chippewa County and located about 11 miles south of Watson. I live in Minneapolis. My smaller machine shed had sliding doors that have been destroyed in the wind.

I have 2 machine sheds, each with bi-fold doors. One door is 42 feet wide, the other 50 feet wide. They are approximately 30 years old each. I am thinking about replacing the cables on each door and wondering if there are lift straps available that I could attach to the steel frames. Both doors are very heavy steel frames. I currently have one roller that the weld is cracking on and if I have to replace one, I thought I should think about replacing the others also. I appreciate your help with this situation.

We're planning a new machine shed/shop on our farm for summer construction. I'm interested in a 24'x14' overhead, bi-fold, or one piece door. Can you give me a quote? Looking over your options, I'm sure it's hard to quote without more detail. In general, we're building a post frame building, 16' clearspan, and the door will be located on a sidewall. I want the door a minimum of 14' high and, depending on the I beam header size, we may be able to make it 15' high. I would want a couple windows, remote opener, the option to plug a tractor into the system in the event of a power failure. I think I like the flushmount style the best. Could you give me optional prices on options #1,2,3, and 5. Also, option installation. Delivery would be to Earlville, Il.

67

building a shop wondering about bi-fold doors I want height of at least 15' possibly 16' to bring machinery into the building. What size of rough opening would I need? I'm looking for 30' and 24' wide doors. 30' would be an end door and the 24' would be a side door.

68

We are building a shop / machinery storage building for a larger family farm located in SW Minnesota. They are looking for a 48' x 16' equipment door along with a 28' x 16' and a 16' x 16' door. They believe they want hydraulic doors, but would consider a bi-fold doors if there is a significant price difference. The clearance is an issue, so in the case of the bi-fold doors we would want to go to an 18' high door to still get the 16' of clearance. Since these are located on an end wall of a 160' wide building there would be no problem in accomodating the additional height for the bi-fold door opening. Please give us pricing quotes as soon as possible. Thanks, Neal
