Hi guys, Love your product. I can already imagine never going back to other products. For my first project, I'd like to use a bi fold door with black liftstraps for an interior office very similar to your residential interior doors. It would cover an opening about 6' wide and about 8' high. From looking at photos, I can imagine I might want a door about 9' high, so that it is above the opening when open. I'd go even higher, but realize for every foot higher, it protrudes another 6" when open. I have plenty of room for this application. So I'm looking for an affordable, cool look...say the Old Navy bifold door look. What do you recommend? I'll review the catalog as well.

I have always been interested in having an interior  bi-fold door for a residential home...once we bought one. With the upcoming closing on our home, I'm researching the bi-fold concept, mostly from aviation applications, but now residential. Looking at Bi-Fold, preferable with one top row of windows, and I like the strap-lift concept instead of cables. I hate the wasted overhead space of a conventional garage door. Researching your site, it looks like I will need to figure the structural strength/capability of a bi-fold for the home. Any dealerships or applications in the Houston area? Fort Bend County area in particular ?

Hi, I learned about your company in the recent issue of Architectural Record and your excellent web site. I am interested in replacing my garage door with one of your bifold-strap doors. It is a small (masonry brick, block and prestressed concrete) house in a premium market that was custom designed and built by me 35 years ago. The current door (swing open) cost me 4 hundred dollars back then and clearly the house deserves (and can afford) a lot better in todays real estate market. I like the many advantages your residential interior bifold door product offers. Please contact me to see if we can work something out. Thanks, Sam


Hi there, I'm trying to find a bifold door and your strap system makes a lot of sense. This is going into a rebuild of my current house, so I'm looking for residential interior doors. The garage area right behind the door will be open to the second floor to accomodate stacking cars. I am wondering what the price would be shipped to Canada and if a interior door can be automated with a system that can be controlled remotely via an app like Chamberlain's MyQ app. I don't know what you mean by side column & end wall/side wall below so I left it blank.

We have a residential interior door project in Sonoma County that we are building in two phases. The first is an ADU unit above a large garage (where we would need to order two bifold doors for). The second is there primary residence that will be constructed soon afterwards that we would need a single bifold residential interior door for. The ADU unit is trying to be built as affordable as possible, whereas finer finishes are being reserved later for the primary residence. With that in mind, I am trying to price out what the affordable size would be to fit your bifold doors to? The maximum height allowed in the ADU is 9'-6" and the maximum width would be 17'-6". We would love a quote for a size that would be the most affordable option within that frame.

Hello! I'm looking to use your bifold or single panel door on a small residential home's living room. They have a very nice view, but the room itself is quite small (for such a big door), so we're hoping to maximize the door size, but minimize any straps/motors/systems. I saw one example in an airhangar where you guys used cables instead of lift straps for the door. We would be interested in this. We also like the hydraulic system. We saw a visually minimal version of this on the "Metal Shutter House". Could you quote us (rough quote) for these two residential interior door types? Our opening is 6'8 high by 10'5 wide. Thanks!


Hi! I am doing a gut renovation of a wood frame residential home in Chicago. I have an 8' x 8' opening (there are a few inches of play in the opening, but roughly 8'x8') in the back from the kitchen to the backyard, and have considered sliding doors, french doors, and a glass garage door, but I truly believe your Schweiss residential interior doors are the best bet for this application. I want it all glass, and bringing the outside, inside is important. Weather-tightness is an issue because of the application and location. I like a garage door, but hate the track running along the ceiling. One of your residential doors would be perfect so I don't lose any headroom! It would also create an overhang when open, and leave a huge opening to the backyard. I'm wondering what the cost would be for such a door, I'm assuming lift strap would be more cost efficient than hydraulic? Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you!
