What People Are Asking?



A colleague of mine had gotten a quote for two bi-fold doors in January 2023. I am looking to get an updated quote. I also am interested in the a quote that includes the superstructure bi-fold door that Schweiss makes. Is it possible to get a quote with and without the superstructure? We are installing this in an existing structure. With retrofitting bi-fold doors to an existing steel structured, does Schweiss do any evaluations of existing structures for compatibility with their doors?

I would like to get a cost estimate for a standalone superstructure hydraulic hangar door. 17' high x 56' wide.


Im looking for a 13' tall 24' wide door for a shop door. Needs to have as much clearance as possible when open - might need free standing header or superstructure along with door frame. Can not really lose any overhead space due to machines barely fit now


I would like to obtain a quote for a bifold door that has a free standing superstructure door header and lift straps. The building is all metal with a raw opeing size of (19 ft., 2 in.) wide by (15 ft., 1 in.) tall. Do you sell kits for the strap lifting and other motion harware roller bear, hinges, ...etc. (we have the ability to perfrom all fabrication (welding, electrical, etc.) Could you please send me information or web address for custom designer doors? This is a different project. Looking forward to your response,...Jeff


Hi there, We have a customer who needs a 50'x14' bifold Super Structure door. It will be stand alone and they will be building the building around it. Can we get a really rough idea on the price for this door? I don't want to waste your time quoting it if it's too high. Please call or text me when you get time. Thank you! Nathan


I have used your product for a bi-fold door on a previous project. I am looking to get some detail info on your bi-fold superstructure doors to go on an older wooden building.


Hello- We are designing our building and would like a quote for a 40’ x 12’ and a 40’ x 14’ door. We are interested in the doors that have their own freestanding frame, I believe you call them Superstructure Bifold Doors.


I'd like to know more about your stand alone bifold superstructure door options. My building will not have the ability to support a door.


I'm working on a project in Wisconsin, which will ultimately need 4 x "hydraulic or bifold superstructure" doors, which are standalone without requiring building structure. We need a full clear height of 40' and a clear width opening of 70'


I would like to have a quote for a Schweiss Superstructure door bifold and hydraulic self supported 40x12 thanks


Hi, Hope you are doing well. My name is Jae from a facade consulting agency in NY. We are working on a storefront system and trying to install two bifold system on the second floor. We would like to know if we can place the dolly system and the weight slightly away from the door to avoid interfering with the main structural system.Would your new Superstructure door system work for this? If you can give me an email reply, I will send you the drawings. Best, Jae


I currently have a 60x80 wood machine shed and am interested in a bifold door with lift straps on one end wall currently I have two sliding doors. Im interested in getting a quote for a superstructure bifold door. The clear opening would be 16X32 (HxW). I would also like know the cost for you to install. I do have a couple of initial questions: How tall would the side columns of the superstructure be for a 16’ high opening? Im trying to figure out if it would fit underneath the overhang of the shed. How far out does the superstructure sit out of the shed? If you have picture of a machine shed with superstructure bifold door on an end wall would be great.. Im sure there are more info needed but this should get the conversation started, Joe O’Brien 57389 282nd Ave Plainview MN 55964 507 202 1123 obrienjoseph@yahoo.com




We have a customer that wants to replace an existing Overhead door with a Bi-Fold to allow for more clear height opening on a existing Metal Building. I can provide picture details by email of current structure. WM Notes: Existing OH door opening is 24ft wide x 12'10" high. The existing metal columns measure 24'7 1/2" to outside. The steel building would allow for max 14'high clear height opening. A free Standing steel header and supporting superstructure bifold door columns would need to be included to allow bi-fold to open to 14ft clear height.


I am having a 50X70 wood construction hanger being built. It will have a 45X 14 foot door,and I definitely favor your strap lifted bifold doors. The hanger I am currently renting has that,with the automatic locks. I just recently saw on your website,the ‘pre hung’ super structure bifold door,which appears to be self supporting. How does this compare with the conventional bifold with the bottom mount motor,which ‘hangs’ from a structural beam? With the price of materials currently skyrocketing,I am looking at every cost saving measure I can find,without compromising my Forever Hanger. The hanger construction will begin late this month,or early June so decisions must be made soon. My builder Zack Zollenger might have already contacted you on this matter. Thanks Tom Wilson I don’t answer blind calls,so if you contact me by phone,please leave a message and I will call back immediately.


Good day, I’m working with a client on a two door hangar, looking to install two 45’x14’ Schweiss Superstructure Hydraulic doors, it’s on an existing 40’x50’ pole style hangar where your Schweiss Superstructure door will fit perfectly. Thanks


Need a price on a superstructure bifold liftstrap door and hydraulic door. Need to have a 12'-0" clear height and a clear width of 42'-0", Include price on remote opener, and a backup system.


Talked to Dave Schweiss at Sun n Fun. I’m looking for an estimate on a Super Structure Bi-Fold strap door for my hangar. The hangar is overall 42 ft wide, with a 1 foot wooden end on the hangar opening. It has a 6” wooden header across the span. Three specific questions: 1. I would like to have a way to lock the edges of the doors with bottom and side windpipes for high winds in our area with hurricanes around. 2. Do your doors come with metal panels on the frame? 3. How long is the delivery time after ordering? Thanks for you time. Jeff Edwards


I am interested in the self-supported superstructure bifold strap or hydraulic door design. Since the tri-pod is behind the door, the opening will be less than the door size. What size door will I need for a 30 foot opening? Can I order a walk-in door, windows, and insulation?


I am working with a client who is interested in one of your "stand alone" superstructure liftstrap bi-fold doors approximately 40' wide x 14' high. I would like to get some preliminary loads


Hello. I am looking for a quote on some sliding or superstructure bifold or hydraulic doors. We are in the process of drawing up plans for an 8000 sq ft (rustic) multi purpose center (we are calling the "Lodge" and are shopping around to see what it would take to put in some of these doors. The area we are looking at adding doors like this have 22 foot tall walls, and is about 35-55 feet wide. What would this entail? We are looking at all options and are looking for quotes. Thanks!

Looking for self standing Schweiss superstructure bifold door with open dimensions of 55' x 16' - please specify eve height required. Bifold or Hydraulic (preferred) but don't know the price differential. This is for a basic 60x60 box hangar, so no insulation or anything fancy. Do you have several box hangar kit manufacturers you work with and would recommend? If you only work through contractors please provide contacts in my area. Installation zip is 97330 and KCVO. If you can email me some idea of price and which option would be best I would appreciate it as it would assist with my planning and door manufacturer before reaching out to contractors. Thank you.


i prefer emails, I am planing to Build a concrete walls Hangar for a.plane 50x50x18 looking for a Bifold door 48x16. I believe your Schweiss Bifold Superstructure door could save me big money on construction costs.


I have a bunch of large doors in our manufacturing plant that need to be replaced. Because they are so large I would be interested in knowing more about your new Schweiss Super Structure door frame,thanks Joe


New hanger. 50' x 50' x 20' Either wooden or steel construction. Concrete pad. Very interested in your new Schweiss Superstructure bifold door.


Looking at putting up a Star steel building with a 50' x 18' Schweiss Superstructure door in the end wall. What would the rough opening be for the door when they go to spec and price the building for me? I am also wondering what kind of price difference there is on the superstructure compared to the regular doors? Thanks Troy


Hello I'm hoping to get a price on a hanger door and I'm interested in the superstructure bifold, id like a 40' door and I'm not sure how tall i can go. The bottom of my trusses are 14' I understand the superstructure door on a new building is a big cost saver..


Hi, We are needing a quote on a bi-fold superstructure liftstrap heavy-duty door, what information do you need from us? Thanks, Kevin D. Whitman


I would like a quote on a bifold 40ftx10ft.height also a hydraulic lift 40ftx10 one piece with both styles using your Superstructure frame door. Thank you Ernie


Please send quote for 56 x 14 high bi-fold hanger door for wood frame hanger attached to airpark dwelling at Meadowlake airport (KFLY) in Peyton, CO. Quote using your new Schweiss Superstructure 3-point frame.


Hello, looking for a price on a bifold or hydraulic superstructure door for our residential airplane hanger. It will be 50x60x12. Thank you.


I am interested in building an aircraft hangar using a steel system from Rhino (or equivalent) using your new bifold Superstructure door. They suggested I first talk with you and get a quote and specs. I am looking for low-cost, as this will get relatively low use (once a week), and am open to either bi-fold or hydraulic superstructure doors. The hangar will be in a mountain town in Montana that receives some strong winds and heavy snow for parts of the year, although the door is very unlikely to be used in high winds. We are looking at a 50x60x18 building, and a 42' door. Can you please quote and provide recommendation and/or options? The plane will be a Cirrus SR-22 GTS, so has a 38'4" wingspan and is 8'11" tall.


I am requesting a quote for two bi-fold Schweiss Superstructure doors that will be used for an airplane hangar. The two openings are each 148 ft wide by 28ft tall. The doors will be supported by a header truss.


Need pricing on a 68' x 22' BiFold with Superstructure (self-supporting) Door Project: Alliance Hangar, Van Wert, Ohio Butler is looking for the specs so they can price their building to allow the loading applied to the building. Superstructure bifold door will save me money on building costs.
