What People Are Asking?



Hello, I am interested in pricing on a 14'X32' one piece hydraulic or bifold custom designer glass door. This door will be insulated glass provided by others. Phone call is not necessary unless more information is needed. Thanks Tom


I'm working on a Natatorium on a very tight budget. To save money, the "back" wall of the enclosure is block with an OH door of some kind. The structure is just over 8' o.c., so right now the plan is for 3 OH doors 8'x12' attached to the structure. However, with one of your products, I can attach to the back wall (or a frame). I also could do 3 bifold liftstrap doors, or go to two at 16' wide. Give me some budget price for using any one of your products (tilt out or fold up).


I am currently working on a small custom design door project in Los Angeles. We are extremely interested in your product. We have 11'x 9' Opening and we want to make it glass finish.


Greetings: I'm planning on building a new custom home soon. The architect suggested a bi-fold custom design door for the design.

Hello we have a room that has an 18’ x 9’ 8” we would like a custom designed Schweiss glass door. Please contact on cell as I’m rarely in office. Our foreman and Architect are endorsing your bifold liftstrap designer door series, but neither have used your system and we are anticipating this fitting well. Thank You in advance for your anticipated support. Chris


I am building a 3 story custom workshop/residence. We are at the design/cost trade-off stage for various ways of creating the large openings for the high-bay workshop (14' high door - probably faced with weathering steel or fiber-cement panels) as well as the indoor pool (a large corner opening 11' high and 26' on each side). A bifold Schweiss liftstrap door for the workshop and bifold all glass door for the pool area are the current consideration. However, since the steel and concrete structure can be designed in any way, it seems very likely that we can create a much more functional and architecturally compelling set of openings using hydraulic doors.

Hi have a customer building a very high end custom home in the exclusive Summit Club out here and he is dead set on one of your custom design doors. He likes the bifold custom design door. It is going to be a flush metal exterior finish.


Hi I am on a 2 year project in Texas and relocated here for that time period. My home is in Sandy Hook Ct. I read your web site info. It seems like you are problem solvers with an eclectic road of businesses and talents. I am trying to get 4 sets of two bifold custom design doors, 2 sets match and the other two are positioned in the mid section of a wing shaped building design. They would required tweaking each separately to get them to fit at the butt joint opening. The openings are roughed at approximately 12' t by 12' w swing style like large stable doors. I would be looking for frames with hardware with what im sure would be one of your custom closer sets for each opening. I need them to accept some wood design inserts in channels of some kind to go along with the design of the building. There is a high level of design on this 300' building with stalls offices numerous living units. I was pulled into you web page after three vigorous days of searching from industry to industry then I was clearing my head while looking forward to a Helicopter hanger on the property as the next build which would also be very detailed. I noticed in your pictures first your opener concept Genius. We have a constant wind issue and I thought with your history and these bifold custom design doors that as I copied and rotated one of your frame designs it seemed like an easy bridge to swinging doors from your current lift and bifold doors. I am hoping you would be willing to discuss any possibilities. We have plenty of lead time for design and fabrication. 


I am looking to do one custom design bifold designer door 14' tall 12' wide when opened, and wish to have glass window panels fitted throughout with a dark grey or black aluminum frame. Additionally, I would like to have an 8x8 hydraulic door that can be fitted with a horizontal wood slat overlay or a metal pane overlay so that this one looks like it's just an exterior wall rather than a door. Please let me know any other information you may need from me on this request and build suggestions.


Hello: I realize you specialize in doors. I have a physical disability and I am looking for a custom design door with a hinge that can be mounted on the EXTERIOR surface of a Corian surface. It has to be mounted to the hardware on a solid surface, in this case, a 18" x 24 folding extension attached to a kitchen island wood side panel. It would be mostly hidden by the fold-up surfaces visually. Can you recommend any resources for this type of bifold door hinge? Thank you for your time and help. Matthew


Hello Bifold, Did you know I came across your site looking for innovative Schweiss closet doors? I think your custom made design doors with straps would work great behind a barn door for a closet. I want to make the door go up against the ceiling instead of slide left or right along the wall. Do you have diy kits? What is the smallest kit you have? 


We have a couple of homes we are bidding that have larger "hangar-type" sliding garage doors; is there a local supplier / installer that we can contact in order to replace these with quality Schweiss custom design doors ? Thank you in advance.

I'm an architect (licensed in VA) interested in a hydraulic or bifold custom design garage door for my home in California.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you, Rudi


Hi, I am in Canada and would be interested in a residential custom design doors. I am looking at your product because I have an old one-piece garage door that has got to be replaced. The problem is there is an airduct bulkhead directly over the 6.5 high garage door. Hence a traditional paneled door will not fit due to clearance, but your bifold residential door should. Reducing the side of the door is also not an option because adjacent to the garage door is an entry/exit door and the rail for the paneled door would be blocking people's entry and exit. How can I get your product in Canada and would you do a small residential job? Thank you for any ideas. Logan
