Hello Schweiss Staff Member: I was hoping for two (rough) price estimates both for a 8’ wide x 9’ tall tempered glass and black metal (garage factory style - visually glass with a black metal grid of squares) door. We’d like a price estimate including a remote, if possible. I’d like to know what a bifold door would cost. I’d like to know what a hydraulic, pivoting door would cost. Both of the same size: 8’w x 9’h I’d also like to know what order volume (how many doors) is needed for a price break, and what the reduction per door would be. Thank you for your time. Best, MR

We are looking at putting in a hangar door, we are pressed on height. The tallest point of the building is 19' and when we factor in the roof structure and the header we can get away with 16'-17' of door. Which brings me to this question, would you recommend the bifold hangar door or the hydraulic? Being in Alaska, the snow and wind load is also a factor. what would be our best option? Also, what are the price differences between the two?

Hello. I stopped by your booth at Oshkosh. I have an aircraft hangar. Currently I have sliding/stacked doors. They work just fine, but I'm considering changing to a bi-fold or hydraulic door. I have a 50x50 metal hangar (Whirlwind Steel company.) My hangar door opening is 42 feet wide, and 10 feet 3 inches high. I don't want to lose any of the height; according to your website - that should be possible with either you bifold liftstrap or hydraulic hangar doors.. Can you reply with a ballpark estimate for a Schweiss bi-fold door? Thank you. Pat McGinnis


Hi, We are currently wrapping up a project in Charlevoix, MI which has a flush/clad SuperSneaky sectional garage door installed, but given the design of the door, the installers of the vertical standing seam cladding are having a difficult time achieving a clean double-lock seam since they need to start and stop their seaming at each horizontal sectional door panel. They are currently trouble-shooting this, but our client wants us to explore the possibility on using a different door with fewer panels like your hydraulic or bi-fold liftstrap panel doors so that the standing seam siding is continuous or has fewer horizontal breaks from bottom to top of the door while still being able to be flush with the adjacent standing seam siding as intended. I would like to send you a PDF which shows drawings of the current SuperSneaky clad sectional door along with images of the house during construction and a mock-up of the standing seam siding where it meets the flush / clad garage door.  If we use one of your bifold strap doors instead, we could possibly work with this actual garage door size for the rough opening if needed. We look forward to your feedback. Let me know if you have any questions, and let us know the approximate ballpark pricing for your bi-fold and hydraulic doors. Thanks.

I am going to convert an old machine shed into a truck shop for my spare time and want to compare fixing existing sliding doors or doing it the right way.


Looking for a garage door for our RV Shed that has very little head room one end of shed needs a 27'w x 14'H and the other end will need a 11'w x 14' H door, looking at both the bi fold and hydraulic


I am interested in receiving a catalog for both your bi-fold and hydraulic doors. Any additional information you have about large custom glass projects you have worked on, including any details you can share, would also be helpful.

We need an easy to use door system, bifold or hydraulic, for a hangar. The door size will be approx. 40' wide by 12' high. This is new construction. We hope to break ground early next spring.

I am building two hangers that require different size hydraulic Red Power doors. One requires a 40 ft x 14 ft high and is to be installed on the end wall. The second door is to be 60 ft x 14 and is to be installed on the side wall. Both buildings will be pole barn construction with steel cladding. Please send quotes for both doors.

Please quote the two types of doors ASAP. Call if any questions. The door OPENING needs to be 80'w x 30'h.


Hi-I am looking for a price on a door for a post frame ag building with and opening of 40' by 10'6". I want to retain all of the height and width, so I am looking for a outside mount door. It will be single sheeted with steel and no insulation. If possible, a price on both hydraulic and bi-fold.

Thanks in advance


I am exploring options for a hangar. I need an idea of what these bifold doors cost. What electrical requirements are there? Thanks

Looks like the hydraulic door would be best for the buildings in question. But would appreciate a price on both types.


door size 12'x12' steel headers; steel wall contruction. i am interested in both type doors; but think i prefer hydraulic. Questions: 1. is there manual overrides in case of loss of power to operate systems? 2. why can't strap mounts operating system be above header instead on on door? 3. electic over hydraulic? is it 110 volt?


Good Evening could you please call me tomorrow on pricing of a door approx 45 wide by 14.5 high both hydralic and bi fold types.


I need the lead time, construction time, and cost of building 2 aircraft hangars. 60' deep, 100' wide opening, and a 30' height clearance (door), heated, lighted, and insulated. These hangars will not be built in the same state. One needing to have snow loads, the other will not, but will be in a hot humid area. Which of the two doors, bifold or hydraulic one piece do you recomment and why.


I recently put up a shop, and the door I chose does not meet thr requirments that I have. Please provide a quote for the bi - fold, as well as the hydralic door. opening size is 40' wide x 16' tall




I have previously requested a quote on a bifold door, and want to compare a hydraulic door.


we are considering building a 100' X 80' hangar in alabama. we think we would like a 60 X 20 door for the hangar. Can you quote us on the bifold and hydraulic doors you manufacture? thanks


Your company is the best. Great products and Excellent Service. Also by offering both the Hydraulic and the Bi-fold the customer can decide which will meet his needs the best. The question is never which brand the door will be, just which type.


I am constructing a new hanger, what is your cost for a 40 foot hydraulic door vs a 40 foot bifold door?


We are building a hanger this summer and would like a quote on both kinds of doors bifold and hydraulic. door opening will be 12' x 38'. Building size is 40' x 40'. door to be on gable end.


Hello I have a customer that is interested in building a hanger for his plane. I am looking at building a 45'Wide x 48' Long x 16' Interior Wick Post Framed Building for him. Just curious as to pricing diffrence on Bi-fold vs Hydralic doors. He is thing about a 45' wide or 48' wide x 14' height. He has a building now with a 40' x 12' opening and has issues with the tail of the plane and 36' wingspan is tight in a 40 wide door. We are still in the whats it cost stages at this point. i downloaded the Comparisons Lit from here for him as it does raise some interesting points! Thank You


We are doing a preliminary budget for a new hanger and need ballpark numbers on prices for both bifold and hydraulic door. Our width is tentitively 55 FT with a 15'-5" clearance. Please provide rough estimates on both your hydraulic and bifold doors, we will be buying one or the other after our budget is finalized. Thanks


I need a quote on a 40' x 20' bifold and hydraulic door. Installed in ND. Thanks!!


We have an existing Pole building (80'x32' ) with one open side. The building has two openings each 40' wide with a 2' welded beam carrying the roof over each opening 12' to top of beam. Can't say if this beam could carry the additional load of the door. Need a ballpark quote on both style hydraulic and bifold doors and the weight that each would impose on this beam as well as the distribution of the weight across the span. What about the aluminum door?


I'm in the planning stages to build a hangar; I'd like to know what type of foundation extras are needed, a general cost estimate, shipping issues, etc to a location in Georgia. I'd like to know which is most cost effective, bifold or hydraulic, so please give me estimates for each. Will I need a structural engineer's stamped approval to obtain the building permit or will a CE's approval be acceptable? Give me you best guess! My size estimate for the door is approximately 12 feet high and about 50 feet wide.  I've seen one of your doors on another hangar, and it had an 8inch I beam structure all around it, plus some footings that I can only guess as to the size etc.


I am looking into building a 60 x 60 hanger in SD by this fall as I will be moving there. I would like a quote on both a bifold and a hydraulic. I don't know if there is a price difference or the advantages to either one. I am building a 12' to 14' sidewall, big enough for most general aviation planes. I am thinking 50' wide or maybe 45'.


property located  FL request price for both Bifold and Hydraulic diamensions: 39'11.5" wide 11'4" High Thanks


I would like a quote on both styles of doors (hydraulic and bifold) to fill a roughly 16' x 30' opening. Last Wed. high winds destroyed the cheap door that I had. I would like a quote from you. It needs to have 2 windows,a walk in door,remote control w/ 2 remotes. Since this is the only entrance into the building for machinery I need to have it replaced A.S.A.P. The building is steel truss const. and was originally used for flat grain storage. I think the building is late 1950's vintage. I don't have exact measurements.
