What People Are Asking?

70: TILT UP CONCRETE PANELS

1

Good Morning, We are designing an industrial facility in the suburbs of Boston which requires a large hanger style bi-fold door for loading. We require a clear vertical opening of 20' minimum when opened. We are looking at integrating the facade of the door with our design. The building structure is steel tubes and truss

2

Please quote as door installed, we will install liftstrap door finish (steel panels). Customer needs 18' clear from top of tilt up concrete panels to bottom of bi-fold door wedge.

Copying project info I sent to another manufacturer: What are the Rough Opening(s) dimensions W x H ? Once existing doors are removed and rough opening widened, approx. 10 or 12 feet wide x 8.5 feet tall, but if standard size (rather than custom size) openings are a lower price, I can adjust the rough opening dimensions. What Type of Door/Window are you interested in? How Many Doors/Windows do you need. Either swing or Bifold. Do you intend to use the opening(s) as windows or doors? Garage door Interior or exterior application(s)? Exterior Will these door(s) or window(s) go to the floor or on a sill, half-wall, counter, etc.? To floor. Recognize that your Rough Opening can NEVER be the same as your Clear Open Height (Once the door/window is installed) If you have a required “minimum” height (measured from finished base to the underside of fully-open door let us know. What structure will be present around the opening? Steel hss tube? Wood? Tilt Up Concrete Panels? Other? Wood on 3 sides, concrete on floor. Are there any drawings and/or specifications available at this time (elevations and sections, in particular)? If so, can you provide? See attached picture of existing doors/opening. Any additional information you can provide about the building, structure and support would be very helpful! Looking for a solution that requires minimal protrusion of a bifold liftstrap door or its hardware on the inside of the garage. The Schweiss swing and bifold that push out to the exterior seem like good solutions.

Looking for general pricing and recommended structure design accommodations for manufactured precast tilt up concrete panel bifold strap doors. Sizes needed would be between 8ft - 12ft tall and 20ft - 50ft wide. Also wondering what door thickness options you have available as we are trying to keep a slender profile for the wall with minimal projections on the doors.

5

Looking to possibly add 1-3 bifold tilt-up concrete panel doors to the interior of my retail camera store. Wanting to add security and I like the idea of hangar doors. Approx opening of 13.5'x30' and 13.5'x40' (the 42' maybe able to be done in two shorter sections). The building is actually concrete tilt-wall with wood glum lam beams (approx 30"tall and the doors would mount to the beam and "hide between them when raised. This is a retail space and doors would open and close approx 350 times a year.

I have a series of 45' wide concrete tilt up Hangers at the Chino Apt, CA. They were built in the mid 60's with two side opening roller doors. They are very heavy and and the front glued team beam sags after 50 years making maintenance an issue. Plus if we have one hanger open the next one is blocked. In looking at your products do you make the bi-fold doors with a man door built int one bi-fold? Otherwise there is no way to enter without always opening the entire bi-fold. What is the average cost of a door ? are they're any discounts for 14-16 of them ? Please advise Thanks Don Spence

Good afternoon, I am looking for pricing with estimated freight for three bi-fold liftstrap doors (size below) with sheeting if that is an option. This will be a new build and the building is a tilt-up concrete panel wall building. Thank you

I am needing a bifold door for a new tilt up concrete panel building and was wondering what the cost was for a 20' wide x 16' high door. Hydraulic vs bi fold. Can we ship it here cost effectively?

I am looking at using your patented Schweiss bifold heavy-duty strap doors in a cement storage warehouse. It looks like most of your pictures are overhead doors that open upward. I am looking at using these for a door. Along with this the straps will have to be located on the inside but there will be cement dust on the inside. Also the electrical motors  will need to lock the door shut and be able to hold a wall of cement (17 ft high at 80 PCF) without opening. The doorway opening is 20 ft wide by 15 ft high. Currently we are looking at putting two equal size doors (10 ft wide by 15 ft high).

Need (2) - 9' wide x 8' tall bifold doors with door frame and flashing for an insulated concrete form wall. The tip up concrete panel bifold door should be  8" thick and the foam on both inside and outside are 2.75" thick for a total wall thickness of 13.5". Would prefer to also have some sort of Schweiss door backup system in case of a power outage. Have you done that before? Also need a personnel door in the face of one of the doors. Need to be able to insulate them well to match the insulation capacity of the ICF system. The inner and outer steel flashing has to wrap around and over the edge of the foam to protect it about 3" of overlap.

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.
