What People Are Asking?



Hello, I am looking for a door for a lumber kiln building that I am constructing. I will be adding seals to the door from the company from which I purchased the kiln unit. The building is going to have a concrete foundation, wood framing, and wood siding with a gable shingled roof. The problem I have is that the opening is 22 feet, which makes it difficult to create sturdy doors that won't sag. I figured an airplane hangar style bifold door would be a good solution. Thank you


Hi, Looking to get a quote on a 18' wide by 14' high bi-fold door. I'd also like to explore some options like your free standing frame solution, as this would be going into a log/wood shop.


This door would be used to block wind and rain in a timber framed structure we are building. The building will function as an outdoor living space. The style would be similar to the tavern doors pictured on the website. I would like to know if you have installers in our area as well.


Interested in the dealer opportunity and also some door quotes please. Looking for pricing on a 30' x 20', 40' x 20' and 50' x 20 doors please. Into wood buidings.


You previously provided quote on 8/23/22 for a 50'x 11' opening door on a steel building. I have decided to go with a wood frame building and want the door to have a 50' x 14' opening. Hangar will be 56' x 56' x 16'. Thanks, Greg


I have an older wood supported hangar built in 1960. I would like to replace the current door with a bi-fold door. I would like a 10 foot clearance when open. The hangar is around 48 feet wide.

We are planning to build a 60X60 foot wood hanger at Yellowstone Regional Airport in Cody, WY with about a 56X16 foot door. We have looked at a Higher Power door and would like to also price out your hydraulic and bifold doors including shipping. Do they require additional structural considerations for the building? We may change to a steel building, but they are going to be more expensive, so we hope to stay with LSL wood if possible. We are also considering building 2 additional identical hangars and would like to know if there is a discount on multiple doors. What is the lead time needed to get the door built and shipped to Cody?

What would a door like this cost (including the insulation options)? Also, what kind of freight charges would there be? Thank you so much.

Hello-I am wondering how small you can make your bifold doors. I would be looking at something 4-6 feet wide, and perhaps 7-8 feet tall. They can be lighter-duty, but would have to withstand pretty hard wind in this area, at least on one side of the building (I would need two). Can something like this be done? I would also like a ballpark figure of cost if something like this if it can be built. I have not yet built the building, but intend for it to be wood frame with steel siding and roof. Doors would have to be manual operation, as there will be no power to this structure. It will be a small structure, perhaps 12-16 feet square. Thank you for your time


I am a Truss Designer and a customer of ours was looking to install a 40' x 16' Single panel hydraulic door of yours.

If you could send me the point loads for the door and or give me a call I would appreciate it. Thanks


Looking for nothing fancy just an economical basic one piece Schweiss hydraulic lift non-insulated door for a econmical basic hangar. Building will most likely be a combination of wood frame and steel siding.


Rebuilding a 30 ft wide wooden truss building with a 5/12 roof pitch. Exterior is Hardi board. Looking at alternatives of standard 9 ft wide x 8 ft tall garage door framed with a single person access door or full width hydraulic door with 1 personnel access door to accomodate an LSA. Building frame is 6inx6in (wood) anchored into 4 inches of concrete at corners and a top truss (wood) at 8 ft 3 in clear. Cost???


I received a bid from you and am getting close to ordering it. I meant to install the hydraulic door  myself and would like to see someone set up a similar door. Is there one near the Houston, TX or Denver CO area that will be starting soon? I can travel some if needed. If I think it is beyond my abilities I will have someone do it for me but prefer to do it myself. Also, how much lead time do you need for the order? My plans call for the hanger to be attached to my house and will have the rough opening made of wood. If it is engineered correctly will this work or do I have to have steel? The bid you sent is based on my covering the outside of the door with wood and this will add to the weight. Are the specs you sent allowing for this or do they need to be modified. When would be a good time to call and discuss all this?


Hangar is on the left, with about a 40 foot width. The building is wood framed with stucco surfaces inside and out. On the top of the front is a large steel I beam on the front entrance. The beam is more than 18 inches in height as I can remember. Does the stucco adhere better to a hydraulic door, or is a bifold better?

Hello - we currently have a building with a wood truss structure for the roof. We're looking for the lowest cost solution for a bifold door with an opening of 43 feet x 14ft (we think - if an outside mount). Currently we have 11 feet from cement floor to bottom of truss. It appears that you have an outside mount door, is that correct as we need to get the maximum height into the building. We're not exactly sure which style except that it doesn't make a lot of sense to spend too much on a building on our property where we won't see much/if any appreciation. Any information or styles you can lead us toward would be helpful as well. Thank you, Vicki, email is best as I can share with my husband.

I recently purchased a wooden frame hanger that has a 36w x 10'H opening. I need the most inexpensive bifold door option that you provide please.


Have two questions on your 40 ft. x 12 ft. bi-fold. Can we get by with a 24" to 30" wedge height? This is a wood frame building with 2 x 6 walls and osb sheeting, siding is metal delta rib, do we have to sheet your door with osb sheeting before we install the delta rib on your bi-fold door? Thank you for your quick response


I have a hanger with a 40' bifold door. I'm using 2/6 trusses will a 2 ply truss still be efficient enough.


I am building a wood frame hanger. Do you supply the header information or sizing for your bifold door?


We are constructing a building 70 x 200. Can we put a 60' wide door in a 70' wide end wall built with 2x8 studs? If we can what would be the price on a 18 x 70 hydraulic door with a walk in door built into it. And can it be powered electrically?


I have a customer who is looking at building a 60' X 96' X 17' wood frame building. We are planning to have a 42' wide opening at both ends for a possible bi fold door a few years down the road possibly. My truss manufacture is looking for a approximate load weight for the door so we can design the endwall trusses properly. If you could give me an approximate weight for the basic bifold door to fit a 42' X 16' opening, I would greatly appreciate it. I was checking through your literature and did not find any door weight listings. A reponse ASAP would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Niel F.

The bifold would use counter weights for manual open and close.

The outer doors have the one course of block on one side and about 5 feet of block on their outer sides, wood frame above that.

Quote for bifold aircraft hangar door 39ft. X 10ft. no entry door and basic hardware, will be adapted to wooden structure


I have a 40 year old wood structure hangar anchored on a cement floor 36' X 41'. Presently it has four (4) side sliding wooden doors with lateral truss extensions braced to the sides of the building....supporting track.... The present opening....is 9'6" X 40' unobstructed opening. I would like to replace the existing door setup with an electric Bifold or Hydraulic door.


1. How much weight can the door hold? I was hoping to finish the outside with vertical tongue-and-groove mahogany. 2. Since my door is roughly 8'x8' would I need a truss? 3. How are the steel frames finished? Painted? Powder-coated? Info you may need for the estimate: Main header over the door is 2 2x12s that run continuously across the 16' width of the building. Side walls are constructed with 2x6 (not 2x4). Thanks, Robert

We are considering a hydraulic door for our old garage in order to use it as an artisan studio using the door as a sun roof when open for business. What kind of additional support do we need in order to change from our current barn doors to a hydraulic door? We are interested in the lighter weight aluminum door. Dimensions are small, approx. 7.5 ft high by 8.5 ft wide, and the building is an older stick-built wooden structure. Does any of the above sound feasible? If so, could you give us some kind of an estimate based both on your installation and on our contractor installing it. Thanks for taking the time to chat with us little guys. D. D.

Looking for a quote on 45 wide by 18 high one piece hydrolic door. I want a remote control. Delivered to lewisburg ohio. I will be installing onto wood frame. No special header has been figured in my building plans. Do I need one? Building is 72x80 with the end wall having the 45 ft opening, so their will just be a normal truss as the header. It is better to contact me by email. Thanks, Matt W.


I have 24 x 40 building with a 13' 8' ceiling heigth. The current door is a 16'w x 12'h overhead door. I would like to install a door which would give me full ceiling height opening. The building is 2 x 6 stick frame construction with a 4/12 pitch roof, truss's 24' OC. The door is on an end wall. I would like your suggestion for type of door to use and ballpark cost (high/low). Thank You Barry J.


I am building a hangar and I plan on building it out of wood frame with metal on it, and a huge truss to support the door! I would like two options, a 60x12 door and a 80x12 door. Thanx, Forest


I am building a 12'X 28'wooden building, and I would like to put a bifold door in the short side if possible. I would like the width to be 8 feet -- this would leave 19 inches of wall to either side of the door. My maximum headroom inside the building is 7'10" which I would like to maintain. The roof is pitched to one side, like a lean-to, with about 2 feet of room to the right, and nothing to the left. I have built the trusses, but have not put the roof on yet. There is no power at this location, so it would have to be light and manually operated -- perhaps like a hatchback on a car would operate. It needs to be lockable. There will also be a ramp at the entrance to the building. If you have any products that may suit my needs could you please e-mail me the descriptions and prices. Thank You, Preston L.
