We are building a new tool shed and we want to buy a Schweiss bifold door. We want the open space to be 40 ft. wide and 14 ft. high. How tall does our building need to be to the eve to compensate for the door wedge when it is open? Also what size door do we need to order?

Schweiss hydraulic door now and we like it but would like it to lift faster for a building where we store semis. Can we place one of your new Red Power motors on it? Do the bifolds with lift straps open quicker than the hydraulics? Its not the doors fault but when I open the door it lets alot of cold air in everytime we open and close it.

Hello, I work for a dairy equipment company in the engineering department and am intereasted in your lifting strap material for a project we are working on. We presently use a 5/16" SS cable to lift the front of the milking parlor to allow the cows to exit. In order to reduce the size of the sheave I have suggested we look at nylon straping in place of the cable. Do you sell straping separately? Do you make sizes other then 3" wide? What are the limitation in regards to chemical, moisture and others that may reduce the life of the straping? Thanks for your time. Scott P.

I will be building a hangar in June. What is the delivered price for a strap style 40'x10' door?


I just installed your door and would like the price to add the automatic opener. Also on adjustment of the lift straps is the goal to have equal tension on all straps or have the door lift to the same height above the floor at side columns and the middle. My door is a couple of inches higher in the center than at the sides and it seems to be due to the added load due to resistance. Everything worked out great thanks for a great product.

What is maximum door width possible for given building width to allow for door frame? For instance is 1 foot at each side enough? Is it possible to have a man door built into bi-fold door?

We are looking for alternatives for an Underground Parking door that gets operated ALOT in one day. Trying to get away from the conventional torsion spring system.

I'm wondering if this type of system would live in a high usage environment.
