Hi, our office is working on a residential project where the client is interested in constructing a 'garage' that in really is more of an extension of the back yard, and functions as a space for entertaining. He'd like to open it up to the back yard with a fully glazed bifold canopy door that opens upward. We'd like to have a quick call with one of your sales reps to find out if the bifold or hydraulic door is a good fit, and what the cost range will be. Thanks! Sebastian Bartnicki, OAA Office Ou Toronto, Ontario

Hi, I am looking into building a structure and really like the design of your bifold liftstrap canopy doors. I would like to know what a door would cost and if there are other factors that will affect the door cost significantly. Is it something that I can install myself or do you nor recommend that. do you provide insulation or is that something I can add myself at a later date? I put a 24x14 door in the details below but I would be interested in how that compares to say a 14x14 door and if there is a point that the price jumps significantly and how a metal vs steel building affects the door. thanks. you can call me if that is easier.

I am currently working on a project that requires a single garage door. but would like that door to function as an awning when it is open to provide shade/cover. The door is sized at ~8' X ~10'. This door will be placed in a curtain wall. Do to the scale we would like the awning to be, your hydraulic canopy  door seems more appropriate. but even the 8' extension will not be enough. Have you incorporated a dual panel system on this type of door? Meaning when it opens the garage door awning could potentially double in length? If this has been done using the bifold canopy door technique that would be useful information to know as well. Please let me know if I can clarify anything else.

Working with a new client and looking for a canopy door option to garage doors that he will have to see from his view home, so thought about the myriad options for the folding canopy liftstrap garage doors you manufacture. Biggest question for schematic design is ration of opening size for doors vs size of access opening. I am guessing he will want at least 8' clearance. So how much larger does the opening need to be to accommodate the folding door? Thank you, Pearl

We have a manufactured house style we have designed that includes canopy doors. It ships as part of the wall and then opens to become a canopy roof. In a hurricane, it must fold down to cover the large sliding glass door array behind it. I can send drawings. It would seem you could design a mechanism for this very easily. We are struggling. If we came to an agreement on the design and mechanism, we would buy it consistently, it's a bifold canopy door product line.

57

I'm working on a project where I'm needing a bi-fold upward lift canopy door for an interior to interior space commercial project. It needs to be transparent, so mostly glass. The most important part however is that I don't have a lot of height to work with so I'm wondering what your thinnest profile glass option door would be. My opening height is only 8' high and I don't want the height of the door when fully open to drop the head height lower than 7' - higher is even better. This bifold or hydraulic one-piece canopy door would also have to raise and lower in between some handrails, so I can't use side columns. Is this even possible? If someone could contact me with a solution, that would be great. Thanks.
