184: STRAP DOORS VS. HYDRAULIC DOORS

1

Looking for a quote for a 22-ft wide x 12-ft tall door. Would like to see a price comparison of hydraulic vs lift strap bi-fold.

2

I need a quote for a bifold with straps or a hydraulic door. Opening is 34'2" wide by 13'8" tall. Need 11' clearance.

Hi We are designing educational facilities with a 4,300 SF Hangar that will accommodate two Cessna 172S aircraft. This space required two hangar doors with dimensions of 12 feet high and 40 feet wide (clear opening). The building is going to be a Tilt-Up construction and we were looking between the Hydraulic and the Bifold doors which of these suits us better for this type of facility. Some of the design requirements we are looking for this project as follows: • Door needs to be insulated • Weathertight - weather stripping all around the door • Clear opening dimension (12’ by 40’) • Difference in cost between one door and the other (estimate) Please, if you can assist us with additional information and/or give us any recommendation, we would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

I'm interested in a quote for a 50' wide x 24' tall bifold door. Or, possibly a 1 piece hydraulic, depending on cost difference. Thank you.

5

wanted to get an idea of what a 20' wide x 8' high hydrualic door would cost? And then also what a bifold of the same dimensions.

6

I have a hangar with a vertical panel stack accordian type thing. I want to replace it with something that will seal and keep the bugs out better. The size is 50'6" wide by 14' high (approximately). I am open to suggestions about what type would work best.

7

I'm working with Arco Building Systems and am supposed to find door options for my 40x60x12 aircraft hangar. How do the costs for a bifold door vs one piece hydraulic door compare?

8

We have a customer that wants price options on a 40' width X 18' height Hydraulic and Bi Fold door. Door needs to be prepped for the following: 4 - 3' x 2' Windows Spray Foam.

9

I have an existing 9' w x 8' h sectional, electric opener door in a metal ooutbuilding. I neeed to expand the openeing to 8'9" high. After doing so, there would not be enough roomfor the normal door tension bar and pulleys above the door and below the roof line. I could send a picture but cannot do so in this form. One of your bifold or non fold doors with hydraulic or strap openings would work. Can you help me settle on a door, all necessary parts and perhaps find a qualified installer?

10

Very curious, custom home designed with standard overhead door systems. Currently have four (4) single doors, steel clad, R-12 insulated. Would like to understand recommendations on either strap or one piece opening. There are two opposing garages, two doors each, so would need two separate hydraulic operators.

11

PLEASE SEND ME A QUOTE ON 4 EACH 25' WIDE X 20 TALL BIFOLD DOORS AND PRICE THE SAME DOORS ONE PIECE DOORS INCLUDE A 3070 MAN DOOR IN EACH DOOR.

12

I am interested in either a bi-fold door or hydraulic door because of the canopy it provides and the absence of tracks in the ceiling. We are building a small modern cabin and would like two doors that are 8 to 10’ wide and 8-10’ tall. One for the bedroom and one for the living room. Is one option better than the other in this situation and/or is there another option that I have not considered? All glass doors. I like the strap idea but fear they will interfere with the view when the doors are down. Thank you!

13

We are an aviation company looking to construct 2 large hangers. We are looking for doors 50’x 20’. Would like a bid on the hydraulic door and the strap bifold door. What are some pros and cons of each door?

14

Looking at pricing a 50ftx14 bifold or hydralic door. Whats the advantages and disadvantages between the two styles. Installed in a pole building or stick built building

15

I would like a quote for a hangar door and installation if you do that. If not, can you please put us in touch with a local installer? This is a budget quote at this time as we would like to compare a bi-fold door vs a hydraulic door. The door opening is 70' wide by 22' clear opening. So, in the case of the bi-fold the door opening will be taller to achieve a 22' opening. Wind speed is 115 mph, Wind Exp C, IBC 2018. Project location is Carthage, NC. The door will go into a Butler PEMB. I would appreciate a call or email confirming receipt of my request and the approximate timing for receipt of the quote. Please call/email with questions. Thank you

We are currently constructing a Ceco steel building that was engineered for a hyd door after a building that was previously erected. We chose not not use the same supplier and are undecided whether or not to go with a hyd door or a bifold. The door opening is currently 40' wide x 20' high but the building isn't sheeted yet so that possible could be altered if necessary. If a bifold door was to be installed what would be the maximum open distance? I know the hyd door will put more stress on the building than a bifold but I would need help to determine which would best fit the structure itself. What information would you need to provide us with a quote? Thank You

17

Building will be a new 40x40x14 building with 4/12 pitch. Steel web roof trusses will be utilized throughout, support posts may be steel or wood depending on selected supplier. I will fabricate the required door support structure from locally sourced square tubing. Door needs to be ~35ft span and 12ft clear height. It will be insulated with foam board or spray foam. 29ga metal siding will be used to match building siding.

18

We need to get a new hanger door. We are curious what our otions are, and we would like it to be installed as well. Please let me know if you have anyone in our area who does bids and installation. We are interested in a bi-fold as well as the pivot one piece hydraulic door. My measurements on the door size are not exact. I believe the opening is actually 39 feet and 9 inches and the height is 11 feet 5 inches. I assume it will be measured before we order it?

19

I am planning to build a storage building for boats and possibly an airplane. I would like pricing on the most economical option you offer between the one piece door and the folding door. the building would be 40 X 60 and the door would be on the 40' side. please email with any questions or clarifications you may need.

I am interested in placing a hydraulic one-piece or bifold liftstrap door on my rolling food service truck. Could you tell me which door would be better for this application. I do like the extended Schweiss door canopy on both doors.

24

Hi there, We are currently working on a large operations facility in Edmonton and are exploring different types of overhead doors: rolling, bifold, single panel hydraulic, etc. We were wondering your thoughts on the different types of doors, specifically in relation to their open/closing speeds. Is there a significant difference between the types? Do you have any recommendations? We are specifically interested in the bifold doors. Thank you

25

I'm looking for a 42 by 12 hanger door. I'm wondering what the prices are for the hydraulic and the strap door. I am in Wasilla Alaska and I'm curious at approximately what the freight would be as well.

26

Hi. With a bifold door how much clear height will be available opening is 11'-6" high. Need 9'. Please quote for hydraulic door too with the red power hydraulic unit and 2 hydraulic cylinders as well. Thank You.

27

I am looking for two doors for a hangar I am building. I am considering two lift-strap bi-fold or two one-piece hydraulic doors, sizes are 12'x40' and 14'x50'. My final decision will depend on the total cost of the building and a few other factors. I am interested in comparing costs and benefits of Schweiss' lift-strap bi-fold and one-piece hydraulic doors. If you could send me a quote for the two door sizes and types that would be great. Thanks

28
