357: ZZ -AUTOMATIC DOORS

Hi! We are planning to convert our mid-century modern residential carport into an enclosed garage/workshop. We are comparing automatic bifold door options and trying to get a general idea of cost. We are looking to do either two 8' wide doors or one 16" wide door. I think our opening will end up being around 8' tall but we do not have all the exact measurements yet. We believe a glass bifold door would be the best fit, although we are also considering a glass hydraulic door. We have some drawings and photographs that we can share if it would help you to better understand the project and give us a rough ballpark estimate. Thanks very much for your time.

Hey, im going to build a garage in glass. Its gonna be freestanding, 6x5.5 meters, 2.80-3.0m high. All sides will be in isulation glass with wooden pillars behind the glasses in each corner and in the middle of each long side to hold the roof made of wood. I have for the last couple of months contacted several firma in Sweden and asked them for automatic doors  in glass, but all of them are so comfortable, scared and not service minded. One problem has been to find something suitable to lift those heavy doors. I see that you have alot of them and I wonder if you have any experience in making all glass automatic doors. Pivot, lifting, sliding,, doesnt matter as long as its one big piece or maximum 2 pieces. It has to be safe since a single door for a garage can weight around 300-400kg and if it fall when someone is underneath its certain death. Please respond with what you have, i would prefer pictures.
