Hello. I am an end user to one of your bifold doors which was installed in our facility in Chapel Hill, NC in 2018. I am interested in any maintenance free bifold door literature you may have on this model of door, and what type of preventative maintenance and materials may be useful to upkeep and keep longevity to the life of our door system. Feel free to call if you need more information on our specific system. Any manuals, spec sheets, or inspection checklists or materials would be very useful. Thank you for your time.

Hello, We used your bifolding zero maintenance wide opening door on at one of our previous projects (MCC Omaha). I was hoping to do a similar door on a new project but had some clearance questions. If I need enough clearance for a semi truck or fire truck, 14' min. clear, what would the FF to top of hinge height need to be? I would like to have the hinge be at my 15' datum, but I'm unsure what the wedge height would be if the clear height was 14'. I guess we could clad anything above 15' with metal panels to blend in with the building and keep the glass cladding below 15' for the datum, but this is less ideal. Also, what is the difference between the manual latch and strap latch? What would be the best use for each one? Thank you for your help! Dan

I have a Schweiss bi-fold door on my hangar out on Cape Cod. It has worked well for 15 years, but I'm afraid of having a problem in the middle of winter with no one to fix the problem even though I have your Schweiss zero maintenance doors..

I am in the process of having a new steel building constructed and would like a large zero maintenance bifold strap door to provide access for an airplane. The building will be 60' x 80' with a 12 foot sidewall. The large door will be installed on the end wall. Can a 12' tall door be installed if the building sidewalls are 12' ? I could most likely get by with a 40' wide door. Can you provide a cost for both a 40' and 45' zero maintenance fast opening door in both styles. Thanks, Bill

Hello, I am interested in a ballpark quote for two strap-lifted bifold zero maintenance doors for hangars with a door clearance required of 36'x14'. I am not sure what size the door would be to accomodate this size opening. I would like a manual backup lift mechanism for electrical failures if possible. It will be mounted on a steel hangar. The door will need to be shipped (I assume) to Alaska. As I don't have all the structure details yet I will not hold you to the quote - I am only in very early planning stages at this point. Thank you very much,

Dear Sir/Madam; I am trying to design a building to meet my aircraft hangar needs. I am limited to a 60' x 60' area to build the building. I want to use your bi-fold internal truss strap lift zero maintenance system door and need at least a 53' width of an opening. I need specs that show the metal building structure requirements for a 53' wide and a 54' wide opening. Can you please provide specs for each? I am being told I can't do a 54' wide opening for a 60' x 60' metal building. I am not limited by height of building.

I am a building contractor, and have been in business for twenty five years. I built a large barn/shop on the home ranch. I am looking to install a 38'x14' roll up zero maintenance door, in the shop area. I am leaning toward installing a bifold door. I have built airplane hangers for different clients before, and think this may be the best way too go. I realize that an 38' wide door of this type is small for this application, but may be the best way to go. Wind is a factor also. I am keeping with the barn look on this shop, so I am interested in having a sliding barn door "look", which includes bifold door windows. Looking forward too hearing from you. Ken Gregorich President

Hi there! I would like a rough quote for a zero maintenance bifold door solution to an indoor laundry area. The door I'm looking for would be a vertical bifold door, manually powered, on a track along the sides (or not depending on the system). The measurements of the door area are: 57" wide and 87" tall. Could you let me know if you have interior door solutions to such a situation and roughly how much they are? Thanks, Erin

58

Looking for a quote on a 30'x14' and a 30'x16' bifold zero maintenance doors installed to compare the difference of price between the two. The shop I plan to build is still in the design phase so I am not positive if it will be traditional pole barn or a metal truss system with wood (Henry Buildings out of Pelican Rapids MN). One question - is it difficult to finish and insulate the inside of the bifold with the drive system and other features attached to the door?

59

What information do I need to provide to my building manufacturer to assure the openings are properly designed and reinforced to accept your zero maintenance doors?
