Hello - we are working on an institutional project (adaptive re-use of a 1939 steel and masonry structure) in Atlanta Georgia and would be interested in talking with you about two large doors: The first is 12'-10" wide and 25'-0" tall door (alt: 12'-10" x 12'-6" with a 12'-6" fixed panel above) that would maximize glazing area. This is an exterior door on an end wall. The wall will be getting reinforced by substantial wide-flange members we hope to get double duty out of as support for the door. We'd like to look at Bi-Fold for this one. The second would be approx. 48'-0" wide and 9'-4" tall, which we will be cladding in a tackable material (likely homasote), so the actual door frame could be whatever is most efficient. This is not an exterior door. There are existing I-Beams at 16'-0" o.c. that we hope to tie into as support for this door. This door is located on a side wall. Bi-Fold would be an option, though we would also be interested in discussing the possibility of a pure vertical lift panel on a counterweight. Please call at your earliest convenience. We will need budgetary pricing figures in short order... Thanks!


I wanted to know if your doors could only be installed on a perfectly vertical door. I have a aircraft hangar in preliminary design and in order to maxamize nighttime viewing out of the hangar the wall that the hangar door would go onto would be at a slight angle.

the door will be used on the south end of my shop, have old sliding doors on it now, want vertical lift bifold as snow always piles up in front of it.


Please provide your estimate to supply (1) one Vertical Hangar Bi-Fold Door 36' wide x 10' high with all necessary hardware and operation mechanisms for a complete package. Freight should be estimated to Novato California. The door will be installed by our erection crew in a new metal framed building. The owner is interested in a cost-efficient door. Please have your price to us by Wednesday 11/4/09. OK to call or e-mail any questions. Thanks. Paul


Sir, I have a steel building that needs a new door. The building is 68 wide X 106 long X 23 high. The sliding door that was in the building was 24 wide X 14.5 high. I had a mishap with a truck hoist that was still up in the air and so now is the time to fix the endwall with a new and larger door. Because of freeze down of the slider doors facing the south, I want some kind of a vertical lift door of a larger size to replace it. Your bifold seems to be what I am looking for. Do you have anyone who can install the door? Can you give an estimate of what size and type of door and what the materials and the labor would cost? What is the largest size I can put in this building? I would like to go around 38 to 40 wide and 16 high if possible. I need an estimate from a contractor for repairing the building back to original state for the insurance company. I will use the money from the insurance and from myself to obtain a better and larger door. thank you for your help, Paul

I am quoting a project that requires your Bi-Fold upward acting doors. Door specs state internal truss with standard cable lift with bottom drive. 220 Single Phase lift motor with complete wall mounted push button controls. The door will be going to Ky and the drawings show a rough center to center of I-Beam to be 45'-1 and a alt to the building would be 68'-1 depending on which building they choose. I am sure this project has recently been quoted and I would like to see if I could get a quote and the design specs that my building must meet. I greatly appreciate your you taking the time to get Chris
