Hello, I am working on putting together a proposal for a govt hangar project and hoping you could provide me with some ballpark pricing information on your bifold blast doors. The opening will be approximately 100' x 40'. Not really looking for any bells and whistles, the more basic the door and operation (ability to operate manually vs mechanized) is preferred. The intent is to put together a proposal for bid to contractors and include a list of the known vendors that can provide the product within the budget. I'd also be interested in knowing if you provide construction services, technical rep, and shipping requirements (offloading with forklift vs crane etc.) Please feel free to contact me with questions. Kind Regards, Greg


I am looking for a quote for a 40 x 20 bifold door. Project is located in Maynard, MN


I have asked Olympia Steel for a quote on a 50x50x18 aircraft hanger. They said they would need specs from the door manufacturer. I would like to get information concerning an approximately 45x16 hydraulic or bifold blast door. I've looked most of the information over and don't particularly care that it would need to be bifold over a hydraulic. I could use either. Just assume a hydraulic was on the more economical side. Thanks in advance. James

We are looking for strategic partners (Agency or JV relationship) in the Middle East region for Blast Proof Doors for Aircraft Hangars. We're interested in both the Hydraulic and Bifold strap blast doors.


Email is better please, planning on putting up a hangar next year and everyone says your military hangar blast doors are the best. I don't necessarily need a blast door, but would like your highly advanced strap door. Hangar is for a Cessna 182Q. I will also store a 28 foot RV in there along with one or two smaller vehicles. Looks like because of the RV I need a 14 foot high door and am looking at 40ft wide. Just curious as to the lead time, process, installation and cost for a door like this.


need some general pricing feedback on a confidential blast door project that would utilize your bifold overlapping doors.

Hello i have a project where i think i would like to propose using one of your hangar blast door systems. These blast doors would have to be bifold blast doors.


I'm in the planning phase of a hangar. At this point, I'm thinking 60x60 to 60x75 blast bifold door. The blast door would be on the 60' end of the building. I would like as large of a door as possible, but have heard from some people that there is sometime a big price jump somewhere between 40 and 50 foot wide. Can you send me quotes for standard size blast doors between 40' and 50'? For height I'm thinking 12', but I'm as somewhat flexible if there is a slightly different standard that would reduce the cost.


Design stage at this point....rough cost of 70x18 Schweiss heavy-duty blast door. I want a little over 17 clear height when installed and 69 clear wingspan. It will be attach to a concrete block building in Phoenix, Arizona. I am not stuck on any type at this point. I would like the price delivered to DVT Phoenix. Thanks Karl

I am in need of a 120'-0" wide X 24'-0" clear opening vertical lift bi-fold blast door. This door will be installed in the endwall of a 150'-0" wide government building with a 32'-0" eave height. This is a last minute add to a government blast door project that I am currently working on so is there a chance that I could get this pricing back today yet?


I have a bi-fold hangar blast door at Camarillo Airport with a traditional steel cable system. I am interested in retrofitting with your system and am curious about the process and cost. The blast door is 42' wide by 15' tall. I am uncertain of the manufacturer. I am also extremely interested in any kind of solution to seal the bottom of the blast door as the location of my hangar is such that when we get Santa Ana winds, (the curse of the fire we're dealing with right now), I get almost a 1/4" of dirt over the entire hangar floor and my plane looks like someone used a giant sifter and dusted it thoroughly with talcum consistency dirt. I'm a relatively new plane/hangar owner so any advice you have on a bottom door seal would be awesome. Thanks, Barry Anderson.

Hi. I was looking on your site for something similar to a Renlita S-500 where a single panel just slides up and down (staying vertical). Have you made anything like that? This is for a blast door project in Southern California and an exterior application, so we'd probably need to utilize a steel frame and 1" insulated glass panels. I can send drawings if that would be helpful. Thanks!
