What People Are Asking



Planning a 56'w x50' deep building will need tilt up concrete panel doors. 14' walls and a 4.5 to 12 pitch truss roof. I want a 42'x 14' Schweiss strap bifold /manual latch door on the building. Quote on the door delivered to Alaska and door design specs  on the door header. With my pitch there is room to mount door hinge location up on the face of the gable to allow for a clear door opening of 14' in the open position. Double door truss at the gable will meet the load, but I would like specific design info from you. I'll install bifold commercial door.

We are designing an airplane hanger inside an existing tilt up building. The exterior walls are concrete, 8" thick. We are interested in having two 51'-0" x 14'-0" openings with bi fold doors. We are interested in stability, ease of opening, the potential for remote operation, appearance and durability. Our location is Hawthorne Airport in Hawthorne, CA. We are in the design phase now and would like to address concerns and opportunities early in the process and also obtain a preliminary cost quote. How do we arrange for shipping and installation? Please contact me at the email above or feel free to call our Seattle office. Thank you, J. Steven G.
