Hello, I am looking at building a new hangar at the Del Norte, Colorado airport. I am doing the design with RapidSet Metal Buildings. I am looking for a quote on a Schweiss Bifold door for a 50' x 11' opening. Thanks!


I have read plenty of reviews and must say that your Schweiss Doors company is definitely at the top of my list for bifold Liftstrap, auto latch doors when I build my hanger. I am planning on building a 50ft by 60ft metal building hanger and wanted your opinion on what size door is best for that. Specifically, I noticed in one of you pictures on the main webpage a green metal hanger with brown lower color and a red door. Do you have any more information on that building, company that built it? I would absolutely love to have something exactly like that with one of your doors. Alternately, are there any metal building manufacturers you suggest? Thanks for the info and looking forward to seeing one of your doors being installed for me soon.

Hello, I am in the initial planning stages for a aviation bifold door hangar build project in Ohio. We will be building a 100x60 or 90x60 steel building at 3G3 Wadsworth Municipal Airport and I will incorporating one of your doors. I have a Schweiss on another T hangar and it’s been perfect. We are currently talking to various builders and the time frame, permit approval pending, will be late Spring of 2022. Our lot is 122 wide and I’d like to utilize that as much space as possible, hence the hangar size. I will be incorporating a 50 or 60 foot bifold and undecided on total height. 14 seems low so I’m thinking 16 or possibly 18 feet to use as a bifold jet hangar door. For budget planning, can you please give me a ballpark quote for the various door sizes mentioned above. I am also interested in the average labor cost for install. I am flying a trip out of the county until mid August so email is best. Thank you very much. Karl

I am an airport commissioner. We want to replace the door on our maintenance hangar. 15 X 40. We are looking at both options. One piece and bi-flod.

I am looking for a quote on a 70' wide x 15' high bifold aviation hangar door. It would be going in a new pre-engineered metal building. Door needs to be set up for remote opener, auto latches and backup system.


I didn't fill out the size because I need quotes for two sizes: 36' x 10' and 84' x 22'. The smaller door is more likely to be the lift strap type and the larger to be hydraulic (just due to sheer size), but not cut in stone, I'll consider a bifold for the larger door too. Shoot me a price. The number of doors is undecided but the smaller doors will be ordered in multiples of 10 (for T hangars) and the larger will be ordered one at a time as they will be used ina multi-year development.

Hello, I need help on two aviation hangar doors. 1st is within a year I will be building my "Ultimate Man Cave" at X04 airport in Florida. The hanger will be 75' x 70'x 21'. I'm thinking of a 60' x 19' bifold aviation door? I've talked to you guys at Sun-n-fun and Osh Kosh for years. I think your the best door available, but just haven't been ready to build...

The hanger has 40' x 10' HI-FOLD bi-fold door with cables. How much would it cost to convert to your strap system with automatic latches? I don't need pins in the ground, just latches on each side so it closes tight on the sides. Thanks, Don P.S. I prefer email.
