What People Are Asking

72: REMOTE CONTROL DOORS

1

I have a bifold door with straps installed over ten years ago. The door manufacturer is out of business. The controller is a Brand-X Professional with an L 2 logic board which is no longer available and Brand-X does not make a replacement controller. The controller is kaput, probably due to the board. I need to find a replacement controller and since you make these products I am hoping you can sell me one. The unit is in a hangar. It is a 230v single phase system. I do not need fancy, just up, down and stop. If you need pictures of the installation, I can send.

Recently purchased and installed your bottom drive bi-fold door - I believe 26' wide by 12' high. We would like to order a remote opener for it now. Will this affect our warranty? If not, any specs we should know or recommended replacements? Thanks, Ron in MS

I rent a WI hangar with your bifold doors with two remotes. One remote doesn't work at all. The other used to work from almost 100 yards and now you have to basically be standing at the door for the remote to work. (yes, I've changed the batteries several times, but they both have been dropped and damaged). What might be causing the loss of signal? If they can't be fixed can you ship out replacements.

 I bought a 42' steel hydraulic door from you 7 years ago with two remotes. About a year ago my remote openers quit working from a distance and slowly started losing more and more range after that. I have cleaned and applied dielectric grease to both antenna wire connections to no avail. We have installed 10 of these same style doors in NH and have not had any problems with any other Schweiss doors, hydraulic or bifold. 

5

We are a business with 4 of your doors with remote control options. As such, we have a separate remote for each door. A person would need to carry 4 remotes at all times to have the one he needed at a given moment. Additionally, we have many employees, but only 2 remote controls per door. Having many controllers, where EACH controller could control EACH door, would be wonderful. Question - can we get a remote control device from you in a configuration where one controller would control all 4 doors? Things to consider... 1) Our current remotes each have 4 buttons... OPEN, STOP, CLOSE, STOP. However, we never use the STOP buttons... we must press and hold the OPEN and CLOSE buttons to operate the doors. If we release them, the doors ceases to operate. The STOP buttons serve no purpose. 2) It would be fine if the new controllers were similar in function, where the STOP buttons serve no purpose. So, we would need a controller with 8 buttons, with an OPEN and CLOSE button programmed to match the frequency of our doors. Can you help us?

I have a 42' bi fold with straps and auto latch - I now need to add a remote, what do I need and how do I do that? Thanks. Bob 

7

I bought a Schweiss autolatch feature door that only has 1 remote. The other was misplaced. Can I reprogram the door remote opening unit so the lost remote won't work if it shows up? How much is a replacement door remote? Can I use a door remote purchased from elsewhere, or does it take a special handheld remote door opener from Schweiss? 

8

I have a Schweiss bifold hangar door that  I understand it can be modified for "one touch" door  operation. How do I go about this? Or perhaps a remote operating door opener will do the same thing.

31

I purchased a house and hangar with a Schweiss cable bifold door. I love it, but have a few questions: 1) Door is 40 wide, cable drive, auto latches and center pin. I believe it is 12' high opening. (plus or minus a bit) 2) Door has Up / Down / Stop buttons on the control as well as on the wireless remotes. It requires that the Up or Down button be continually held down to operate the door (deadman). Is it an option to program it to require a single push for up or down? 3) I have the wireless option, It works good but I want to extend the range on it? can I use for a replacement antenna? Thanks much! Samuel

32

I purchased a bi-fold door from you in late 1999 or early 2000. It works excellent but, I would like to have another remote control unit to operate the door from another tractor.

Good morning, I'm working on a practice facility for the Unviersity of Iowa football program, and we're looking at specifing two 24'x11' bifold doors.

Please feel free to give me a call. Best regards, Lisa W.

Are you remote controls analog or digital? If digital, do they use the same technology as the latest garage door openers? Are they subject to stray signals? Are they affected by electrical storms? How recent is your current model? Thanks, Scott

73

Great door! I purchased a (45'x16') bi-fold with straps from you around 2004. I ordered the auto-latch and remote option. The only problem I have had is trying to find the one of the remote controls that dropped in the lake (oops!). Actually, it seemed to work well as a fish weight. Anyway, what would it cost to buy 2 additional remote controls. Thanks for the help.

74

I installed a new Schweiss lift strap bi-fold (40X13) with auto-latch on my hangar last summer. I'm toying with the idea of adding the remote opener. What is the price for the Remote opening device?

75

Included in the quote I would like the upgrade options of remote controlled doors and I would like the door to have the cold weather package. I would also like the quote to include 3 standard windows. Thanks Andy

76

Bought a 40x14 bifold (cables) 4 years ago. Airport is here and Neil B. bought it for me (he may be in your database). Question is: Is there anyway I can skin the inside with metal (similar to outside) if so do you have any pictures I can see. I can provide pictures. Also, what info can I provide to determine if I can purchase and use a remote control with my door.

77

I forgot what the price of the remote control was, but I need to purchase one for my hangar which already has the auto stuff on it. My entrance door has snow piled up against it, so I figure I can just push a remote and the front bi fold can open and I don't need to worry about shoveling snow.

78

I have a 14 x 14 foot bifold installed in 1994. Works good but wish it had a remote opener. The door is insulated with metal sheeting inside and out. It is a bottom drive cable system that we changed so it would open faster. We secured the one end of cable to the top of the door rather than having it go up and back down, therefore making it twice as fast. Small door , thought we would be OK as far as drive is concerned and it has worked well for probably ten years now. It Also has an inside truss with a walkdoor and window in it. What would it cost and how much time will it take to install an autolatch system with remote control?

79

I bought extra Heddolf 318MHZ Allstar Compatible remote Transmitters from a local supplier but thye have the color coding backwards from the one you supplied with my door. Do you have labels available for the colors and text so I can make the new ones match the way the original is? thanks gene

80

Do you offer garage doors which do away with photoeye sensors (which are subject to unauthorized manipulation) with pneumatic or other sensors so that when a vehicle approaches the door from within the parkade it can open automatically without use of a remote? Ken C.

81

We would also like to have remote control with auto latch with both door options. It will be only one door. We would like to explore both door options.

82

83

G'day from Australia, When I was at Oshkosh last year I showed interest in your door systems. I am now in a position to give more definitive thought to the "hows" and "when". I am looking for a 20 metre opening with a clear height of 6 metres. Our supply voltages are 240volts at 50 hertz or 415 volts at 50 hertz. I would like a quote for a door with or without remote control and auto latching. The next price would be for shipping to Australia, so weights and space dimensions would be handy or can you arrange pricing for that from your end please. I can arrange customs and imports etc. What is the time frame to supply/manufacture kit and what is approximate time to build? I am probably looking to around mid February for delivery into Australia.

84

I have purchased a hangar that has your bifold door. I would like to order two more remotes for the door. Can you please advise how I can order these remotes and will they be programmed to work with the door I have or do you need more information. Thank you. Regards; Dean S.
