78: SCHWEISS BARN DOORS

1

I have a current barn building that has an open front part on that I would like to put a door on. The opening is 11'4" tall by 22'9" wide. It has a steel header across the span. I would like to know a rough idea on cost of bi fold liftstrap vs. hydraulic swing door. Also which application is best. I want to maintain the opening. The other factor is I have no walk out door on this end of the building and would like to have a walk out door built into the door so I don't loose any wall space and don't have to cut that into my building. I am familiar with your quality Schweiss doors because there are some at my local airport which some friends have. Also do you have installers? I am in central Missouri.

I ordered a Schweiss bifold door quote a few days ago but we decided to think ahead and enlarge the width and height by two feet to accommodate possible larger farm machinery in the future. A revised shop door quote will be great. Thanks!!

I have a customer that wants a barn door. I have installed your product in the past. I need a price quote for a 42' wide by 12'clear high bi fold strap  door, and a 42'x 12' hydraulic Schweiss barn door.

Would like to use bi-fold doors on a hobby farm  barn reno. do you do small as well as big? Talking 8' x 6'. Perhaps a one piece hydraulic Schweiss door would be better for this size. Please advise.

We are fixing up our barn that we use as a shop. Currently we have sliding doors on the north end which we do not use because they are screwed closed and insulated. We would like to replace the doors as inexpensive as possible yet still have a well insulated functioning door on that end. The opening now is 16' wide by 12' high. We are looking for a hydaulic or bi-fold door to keep as much room as possible in the shop. Could you provide me with a ballpark on the cost of these doors. Price liftstraps for bifold and insulated. Separate price if you do the install. The farm is located in southern MN.

I am designing and modifying an existing wood barn for a client that would like to place a 16\' tall x 20\' wide steel bifold liftstrap/autolatching  door on the end wall of the structure. I was wondering if the reactions for this size of door is available for finishing the design process.

Quote on a Bifold liftstrap door for a barn. Looking at either an 18 ft wide by 10 ft high door or 20 ft wide by 10 ft high. I'd like exterior of door to match outside of barn. Difference in price?

10

Exploring options for a barn that I'm building. It will have 4 large doors but I'll have you quote the largest one in your hydraulic and bifold models. The structure is steel with a wood frame & siding attached.

11

I am interested in a relatively small bifold door to replace a obsolete sliding door in my barn. Since it is small, manual operation would be fine if that is an option, although power would be nice if it is not too much of an increase in cost. I park my Yukon XL in the barn in the winter and, as a captain in our volunteer fire department, quick exits can be crucial, so I want a fast opening door with a remote and liftstraps. In addition, my wife will complain if the door does not look like it goes with our 100 year old shingle sided barn. What material styles are available? 

12

We are working on a unique timber-framed wedding chapel/barn project in northern VT. Owner would like (3) doors along the long side of the barn that can open and provide indoor-outdoor space and support themselves. We've been trying to detail what this might look like if site or shop-built by the builder. Just found your site. Can you guys do 9'x9' openings with bi-fold door (or hydraulic), or too small? If yes, what would be your price per door? Schweiss knows best, what do you recommend. Like the backup systems.  Thanks, Billy

Need a quote for a Bi-fold door app 16 high by 30 wide with lift straps for a converted barn to a storage building. I still want to match the door to the barn. Can you match paint and siding.

14

Looking for a price on a 16 feet wide by 14 feet tall opening bifolding door that we could have look like the doors on the red barn in your photos with the horse doors on... We have a 40x17 Hydro door now from another manufacturer I am not happy with, so I know they took 6 inches of head room how much does yours take. How big should the rough opening be. Thanks Allan

15

Want to install a 16'high by 26'wide door in the side of a wood barn. Would appreciate some suggestions on doing this. Can it match the barn in color and style. Can I get the lift straps and have it insulated?

16

We want to maintain the look of an old barn being converted to a shop so we are proposing one of your doors and taking the existing wall material and applying it to the door. I'm caught betwixt a bifold and a hydraulic one piece. Need your expert Schweiss input. 

17

I am replacing existing barn type doors and have not decided to leave the opening as it is or whether to reduce the size to 40 x 14 . Wanted to find out a rough cost of replacement to the bifold doors and if it is economical to reduce the size. Include shipment costs to British Columbia.

18

I am doing a barn remodel and am installing a 22 by 16 overhead door when I stumbled across your Schweiss Doors website and was wondering if you could send me a figure on one of your bifold strap system doors. If I decide to go with you, I'll need something fast. Is that a problem? Thanks in advance for your response. Gustav

Can you send some literature about your product that I can share with my husband? I think this may be the best product for the new barn we are building (one door on each end). I am interested in both the Schweiss hydraulic and the bifold, and long term availability of replacement parts (e.g., straps). Lift straps vs. latch straps...what's the difference? I previously sent a request for quote for a 20' x 14' door but failed to specify other details. These would be solid doors, I'd like to know differences in price for bi-fold and hydraulic doors with backup systems and insulation. We will be building our barn this fall/winter in Ohio. Is installation included (we are not carpenters by any means and this is a do-it-yourself project.

 Do you have Revit families for your doors? We're looking at using the Schweiss bi-fold doors on our barn.

I am in the early stages of a barn remodel planning and comparing options of a roll up door vs. a Schweiss bi-fold door. The barn is a traditional wood structure built in 1924. The opening is comprised of the original main vertical columns (8X8 wood) and currently a laminated 2X12 header in the center portion of the barn. The end plan is a finished shop with climate control, however the construction will take place in stages to mitigate costs, as this is a hobby/weekend shop.  I'm curious if there is an option for a manual opening door that could later be upgraded with power. Also, I would plan to finish the door myself with building tin; the building spot has been in the family since it was built, so a door that blends in with the building has it's advantage vs. a great big white roll up door. I'm certainly interested in Schweiss Doors Thermal (insulated) Door suggestions or options. I expect construction to commence either this fall or next summer. I have entered a 20X13 door for a spec, although 16' would be plenty wide for my needs and I may want to increase the height to 14', depending on how low the slab is poured (the barn currently has a dirt floor.)

I had requested a quote for a Schweiss Bi-fold Door in a 30'x16' opening to replace my sliding doors on my barn. I would also like to have the quote with an option for auto latches and for straps in place of cables.

25

I am pricing doors now for a barn I am updating for a shop. I like the concept of a Schweiss bi-fold doors, but I am not sure it will be worth the additional labor to bring the opening up to load specs.

Interested to know if you produce a bi-fold door that would be suitable to put on my barns. Two doors needed, one about 10 ft high by 12 ft wide and the other about 10 ft high by 14 ft wide.

Our company has done several bi-folds in the past year, and would be interested in trying one of these. My manager saw your company at a trade show and pointed me in your direction.

Good Morning: I'm evaluating the cost of a new hay barn with the following nominal dimensions: Width: 50FT Depth: 30FT Eave Height: 16FT The structure would be designed per the 2003 UBC and located in Paige, Texas. I would like to plan for a bi-fold door in the design and construction but would actually purchase and install the door at a later date. What is more cost effective, buy the door header assembly from you or let the building manufacture design the required opening? Thanks, Shaun B.

45

I want two bi-fold doors with straps, remote control and auto lock. I want to order it without paneling so I can add wood on the outside to match the wood on the barn (cypress board and batten), with the board and batten on the door flush with that on the barn adjacent to the door. Can it be opened and closed by hand when there is a power failure? What size electric service (voltage and amperage) do I need to provide? What is the lead time on shipping? How do I pay? What is the heaviest piece to be lifted off the truck?

46

wondering prices on a bi-fold vs. a hydraulic door for my barn. The rough opening is 20' x 14' I would guess. I will get the exact measurements when I decide what to do. All I am looking for now is prices on the two different doors. Thank you for your time, Brad M.

I am looking for a frame (door) to open the gable end of a barn that I am converting to an office. The opening will be approximately 20' wide and 10' high. My ambision is to use the old existing barn siding as the exterior skin so that the barn retains its present appearance when the door is closed. It appears that your bi-fold strap system may work. Please offer your comments. A price range would be appreciated. Thanks, Tom U.
