66

We have an older (25 yr ) "Erect a Tube" bifold door on our school aviation hangar which is approximately 55 ft wide by about 25 high. I like the safety factor with the straps and we (like everyone else) have had substantial maintenance headaches with the cables and pulleys, especially with an older school door system like ours. This is an upgrade we are looking at for the future (not this year but possibly next year). I like the added safety factor with the strap bearing weights, the reduction in moving parts and the fact that all the main mechanical parts can be accessed without the need for a man lift. Looking for approximate costs for the bifold liftstrap school door system and if our current door can be upgraded or if replacement would be a better option for us. If you email me I can get you pictures of the entire door and provide any more details you may need.

I do not require a quote at this time but if you could provide a budgetary ROM of what it would cost per bifold liftstrap school door I would appreciate it. Please include all required hardware. Are these doors motorized or manual? If you could provide a cost for each option that would be helpful as we are making our selections. Please include taxes, FOB.
