My restaurant is dieing because of covid, I was thinking maybe have glass bi folds vertical or horizontal for outdoor dining and future purposes. Can you price both models for me. I like the hydraulic one piece, but understand the bifold liftstrap doors may be more reasonable in price.

We are looking for a cost comparison between bifold and one piece hydraulic custom sized glass doors similar to those hydraulic and bifold strap glass restaurant doors on your website..

Good afternoon, I am working with a local restaurant owner that would like to have three separate sets of existing windows replaced with doors that open up to a patio area. Overhead doors will not work with this particular application. I would like to propose your bifold or hydraulic restaurant doors to the owner, however the owner would like to keep the same design theme which would be a black or dark bronze anodized finish with tempered glass. The existing windows are 3 panel wide and 3 panels high approximately 11'total width and 9' high. Do you have anything that would be three sections, or would we need to look at one piece or bifold only? Please advise, and hopefully we can find something that he wants to move forward with. Thanks, Gary

Hello, I was wondering if you have a division here in Toronto, Canada. I was looking for a bifold or hydraulic restaurant door similar to the ones on your website for the Sway Thai Restaurant or the Riveredge Park. We are building a shed/cabana and wanted the tilt up canopy style door for the bar section. We are in the process of building so we need to know if your products are available in Toronto and of course the specs and price. We have about 9 ft across to work with. Many Thanks, Renita


Looking to put in a bi-fold glass restaurant door in our new addition. I will have a 33'0" wide x 14'0" framed opening.


I have a customer that is considering a hanger type door for a cafe he is currently building. The construction is mixed steel and wood framing. He wants it to be a full view clear insulated glass style door with the smallest possible glass framing members. I assume the glass would also need to be tempered. I would like to have a quote for both hydraulic and bifold type restaurant or cafe doors and shipping to our location in Southern Utah. The door opening size is 12' x 9'. The door's location has very little headroom and the customer would like to keep it as tall as possible, as well as keeping the opener mechanisms as aesthetically pleasing as possible. I don't believe he wants to mount the motor for the bifold type on the door itself and would prefer a ceiling mount if possible. On the hydraulic type cafe door the pump and motor would need to be mounted remotely so it's not located in the cafe itself. We have not installed doors like this before, but have lots of experience with traditional style "garage doors". We haven't shown either one of these options to the customer yet and would like as much guidance as possible with both door types as far as options for door configurations, motor/pump placement, and installation time estimates. Thank you, Jeff

I am looking at getting some fancy upscale bifold liftstrap doors for a fancy upscale restaurant that I am getting ready to remodel. I love the look of what you do and would really like to get some pricing on your glass-clad restaurant doors.


We are looking for Hydraulic or bifold strap doors for a restaurant renovation so that in the spring and summer we can open up a big part of the back of the restaurant up. We also think the Hydraulic restaurant  doors may be better than bifold because they would act as a make-shift roof should the sun shine in eyes or it start to rain or sprinkle. We could put tables right under the door and make outside part of the restaurant. I would like to know pricing and sizing of different sizer doors to further investigate this possibility. I have not chosen wood or steel because the building used to be a vault for the storage of furs. It is owned by a contractor who will be responsible for opening up the door hole. This is partly why we would like an idea of what different standard size restaurant doors would cost considering we can punch a hole almost any size and are always thinking about reducing costs.


Hello Schweiss! We have a 6 level mixed-use restaurant complex development, currently in schematic design, where we would like to utilize your hydraulic or bi-fold doors for ground level retail/ restaurant doors, as well as a rooftop restaurant door. The restaurant door openings will range from 10' - 20', and we are wanting to get some basic pricing information for the owner group. Please let me know if you can send me this information, or who would be a good contact to discuss further. Thank you, Brian Sachse KKT Architects


I am looking to install a glass bi-fold door in my restaurant between my kitchen and my deck. We have some flexibility with the opening size but I am guessing that it will be around 10-12' wide and 7'-6" high. I would like to maintain as much clear height as possible when the door is open. I am trying to get a general idea of how much to budget for the Schweiss restaurant door and how much structural work I will need to to do be able to support the door. Any help that you can provide would be great! Thank you, Scott 




Hello, We are working on a restaurant renovation and were considering the use of some of your bifold restaurant doors. I was hoping for more information, and ideally a soft quote for your product. Our contractor has estimated a unit cost of $125(Canadian)/sf for the operable bifold wall door. Our project estimate is slightly higher than our client's budget so I am hoping your product can meet, if not beat that number. It is to be fully glazed. It would be similar to what you have done on the Barrel & Bushell or the Blarney Stone shown on your site. Additionally, if we need to maintain 2030mm clear below the door when opened (code requirement), can this be done with an overall door height of 9'? Structural requirements and any thermal performance information you may be able to provide would also be of benefit. Please call if you need any further information


working on a bar project and I would like to get as much info on time frame and installation recommendations on your glass restaurant and bar designer doors.

Good afternoon, I am looking for a vertical bi-fold door manufacturer for a restaurant project we are currently working on in Sheffield, UK. I've seen loads of great restaurant bifold door examples on your website but they are all in the US - do you have any manufacturers in the UK or Europe at all? Regards, Emma Forrest.


just doing some prelim research for adding these bifolding restaurant door/windows on an historic facade, in existing openings for a new restaurant concept going into the building. thank you, Jody Schurman, r.a.


Hello there... Can you give me a quote ASAP on restaurant accordion bi-fold doors ... We are looking to renovate our restaurant facade and need an opening of around 16ft. across and about 7ft. high... Please feel free to call me at 412-680-9094 ASAP...Thank you...


We are quoting a restaurant project. The Architect has referenced your bi-fold restaurant doors, but it does not appear he fully understands the header needs of your door. In addition to the sizes listed below there are three(3) other doors required: 2@9-11 x 6-6 and 1@13-9 x 6-6.


I saw a photo of Sidney's Pizza Cafe where you created bifold restaurant windows (doors) so that you could view through the window or lift the window out of the way and create a clear opening. I work in the residential design department at KJG Architecture and am interested in using a fold up type window in one of my projects. I currently have two different sized windows in the plan and was wondering if you would be interested in providing an estimated price for each. One is 42" wide x 60" tall; the other is 68" wide x 42" tall. These are estimated window sizes so if the width or height needs to be adjusted for manufacturing purposes, that is certainly a possibility. Also, do you feel your product would be suitable for a residential application? As an FYI - the 42 x 60 window will be used on an interior wall separating two living spaces, the 68 x 42 will be used an exterior wall separating a kitchen from an outdoor bar area. If interested, would you please provide an estimated cost for each window size? Thank you and have a great day.


Looking for a supplier of your Lift Strap - Bi Folding Restaurant Door. We are currently refurbishing a warehouse into a Conference Facility and Cafe Restaurant that will also be used by our Church.

Have a restaurant TI going into San Jose, CA. Looking at a bifold glass "restaurant designer door" that is 14'Lx5'H with a bartop as the sill. There's an existing header going across the opening. If this was insulated glazing with a 2" metal frame, how much would the door weight. We'd be looking at a manual strap system for raising it, but honestly the yellow straps are not an attractive option for the higher end restaurant. I would like to purchase the black strap option? Thanks!


I am interested in estimated pricing for 10'x10' bi-fold restaurant doors of the same design as those in the Blarney Pub in Fargo. We are planning on building a monoslope Morton building in the Fergus Falls area next Spring and are interested in having two bi-fold restaurant doors installed.


Hello, I am currently working on a new retail glass restaurant door flagship store concept in Chicago and I am in need of an interior to interior use garage door. We love the bi-folding door idea and think some of these looks are perfect for what we need. I would love to discuss this project further and get some help in specifying the right product. To be clear this restaurant designer door would just separate 2 interior spaces, and be installed in a remodeled location in downtown Chicago. Please let me know when will be a good time to discuss further either by phone or email We would love to hear from you. Thanks, Jamie
