Good afternoon, I am working on a 14 storey high end apartment building in Toronto with a service bay loading door that is adjacent to the main building entrance. We would like to use a bi-fold apartment loading door with custom cladding to match the adjacent cladding panels (corrugated metal cladding with a perforated corrugated metal screen). I have a few questions: 1. Do you have section details in CAD or PDF that I can reference? 2. Better yet, do you have a BIM model of the bi-fold door available? 3. Is there a limit to the depth of custom cladding that can be mounted to the face of the bi-fold doors? Our project has a double-skin cladding assembly: The primary cladding material is corrugated metal, however there is a second 'screen' in front of it that projects out 315mm. Depending on the mounting detail, the screen could be up to 450mm out from the face of the garage door. 4. Please send preliminary costing information to include shipping and installation. Thanks, Mike


I am a luxury residential apartment building company and I am working with a client who would like to do a type of bifold power lift door in their lower level lounge area that leads out to the yard.

I also have a concept photo of what they are looking to do which I can forward along is you send me an email to send it to. Thanks in advance.


I'm just looking for a budget number for a glazed, overhead bifolding door for an apartment project clubhouse. The opening is a standard 16 ft wide x 8 ft high. As for an operator, not sure whether a motor/ strap solution, or a hydraulic solution would be the most affordable, I'll probably choose whichever is more affordable as I am familiar with both of your door styles and know they are both top quality doors. Any info you can email me would be helpful. Thank you. David

Good afternoon. We are looking to specify a vertical bifold glass door in a penthouse apartment unit of a multifamily residential project in Cleveland, OH. The approximate size of the opening is 22' W x 11'-6" H, and would connect the penthouse interior to its private terrace with a couple of your apartment designer bifold liftstrap doors. For this I have several questions: 1. Which product from your line would be most appropriate for this size and use? 2. I noticed you have supporting steel in some of the details - posts flanking the jambs, beams above the head at some conditions. Do those get specified with the door, or by others? 3. Do you have standard drawings or details that could be shared, so we can coordinate the base building architecture? Thank you for any help you can provide.

We have a new apartment building that we are preparing for construction soon.

We are interested in the overhead bifold door as a substitution but don't know if it is appropriate for our use.
