46

We are considering your hydraulic hangar door system for one of our projects, and have obtained some quote information through previous correspondance. Another factor which has arisen beyond just the wind load is the portential snow load. In this instance the door will be open all day and given the building ht. and roof slope will have the potential to accumulate 85-90 lbs/sq. ft. of snow. We are wondering if there are any provisions that can be made to accomodate the massive snow load. Could we possibly get a quote that addresses the live loads of snow at 85-90lbs./sq. ft. Thank You.

47

We are designing a waste transfer facility in a high wind zone, we are considering using a hydraulic door, and through previous correspondance with Schweiss Doors have determined that the door must be 34' in height. The operation of the waste facility will require the door to remain open for vast expanses of time. According to our understanding, when open, the door will extrude from the building. Our concern is that the door will not be able to remain in such a position for the large expanses of time required without additional structure, especially with the heavy wind in that particular area. We would appreciate any input concerning our questions ASAP. Thank You.
