THE BEST JUST GOT BETTER

Schweiss has the Best Hydraulic Pump and Door on the market

SCHWEISS DOORS HAS TAKEN EXTREME PRIDE IN INTRODUCING ITS NEW POWERFUL RED AND GREEN POWER PUMPS TO THE WORLD.

From the minute you press the control button on your handy remote control, you'll be amazed at how this door functions. It's everything you want it to be and more.

The unit has all the bells and whistles and comes with single or 3-phase electrical components. Easy to read psi pressure gauge, service filter and fluid temp gauges let you know that the door is always working properly and at full capacity. Everything is in one compact hydraulic pump unit powered by 2, 3, 5 or 10 horsepower motors to safely lift even the smallest or heaviest doors and seal them tightly.

The Schweiss Safety Advantage allows the door to lock up and down or safely lower or raise your door in case of electrical failure. Each unit comes with a standard tractor hydraulic hookup; lower the door at any time; very handy for agricultural or industrial applications. Specially designed built-in manual override allows the operator to lower the door in case of a power outage. Battery backup features that use a DC battery or drill to operate the door in either direction in case of an emergency, giving you a superior backup system for your door and peace of mind.

New Hinge Design for wraparound hinges!

HINGE DESIGN...

"OUR NEW WRAP-AROUND HINGE DESIGN SETS THE NEW STANDARD FOR HYDRAULIC DOORS"

Schweiss doorframes are designed with double push tubes that are tied directly into the wrap-around hinges that connect both vertical push tubes directly to the header tube. The advantage of double push tubes is that forces of hydraulic cylinders are evenly distributed to the doorframe and the wrap-around hinges.

"There have been hydraulic doors with hinge welds that failed, literally tearing off the doorframe and destroying the door," Schweiss says. "Our design team provided a durable wrap-around hinge with grease zerks that are accessible without removing the top rubber seal."

EVERY DOOR HAS ITS OWN SELF-SUPPORTING SUBFRAME

Schweiss hinges distribute the door loads evenly across the
self-supporting subframe greatly reducing stress on the building structure

THE HINGES SELL THE SCHWEISS DOOR

The Schweiss robust hinges are designed to withstand the door weights and hydraulic forces of the cylinders as the door opens.

Your door is only as good as its hinges! Take one look at the Schweiss hinges and you will clearly see the workmanship, strength and functionality of each hinge. The Schweiss hinges are big... strong... heavy-duty.

GREASE ZERKS ON EVERY DOOR

  • •  Schweiss hinges can be easily greased for longer hinge life.
  • •  SCHWEISS is the only manufacturer to offer hinges that can
       be greased from underneath the door without removing the
       top weather seal.

REMOVABLE HINGE PINS...

  • •  Removable hinge pins are a better design...
  • •  They are never welded in solid on a Schweiss door.
  • •  Designed for easy maintenance
  • •  All hinge pins are removable.

The hinge makes the door...

Door hinge has to be strong

The weight of the door and hydraulic forces exert loads on the hinge while the door is operating

so it had better be STRONG!

The unique hinge design incorporates heavy hinge plates that wrap around each vertical push tube for added rigidity. Without this wrap around design, the doorframe members can be overstressed and begin to tear apart from door weight and hydraulic forces over time. This won't happen with a Schweiss Door!

Hydraulic doors operate with one set of top hinges. These hinges need to be strong enough to support the door weight and the hydraulic cylinder forces when opening; unlike a bifold door that shares the load between the top hinges and the center hinges.

WHAT DOOR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING...

•   "The hinges sold me."

•   "The Schweiss team hit a home run by putting grease zerks in their hinges."

•   "Now that's a Serious Hinge, You guys have it figured out!"

•   "Oh My, nothing even comes close to it. Professionally done!"

•   "Nothing on the market will even come close to the Schweiss hinge design."

HINGE SURFACE AREA

Hinge surface area is critical on large moving doors. Over the years, we all have heard of hinge failures on others doors. Large hydraulic cylinders are putting extreme forces on each of the outer hinges of the doorframe. Schweiss has designed and patented a robust hinge with more surface area to evenly distribute the loads of a moving one-piece doorframe. Look at the hinge surface area. The stresses on the very outer hinges are immense. With that being said, take one look at the patented Schweiss hinges and you'll clearly see the workmanship, strength and functionality of each hinge.

GREASEABLE HINGES

It's very important to be able to grease the door hinges with a heavy viscosity grease. When grease is used on the hinges of a large moving door it avoids unnecessary wear and adds longer life to the hinge and the doors operation. It's a common manufacturing practice to use grease on the critical wear points and load points to avoid unnecessary wear just like in the industrial equipment world with implements such as payloaders, skidloaders and other industrial equipment that are being operated around the clock.

The new hinge design with grease points on every hinge segment enables owners - whether they be private individuals or commercial customers - to periodically grease their hinges from inside the doorframe without having to go through the cumbersome process of first removing the top rubber weather seal.

Advantages of Grease

Using grease on the hinges is a better method of lubrication.

Using grease on the hinges is the industry standard.

Using grease on the hinges makes for a quiet door.

Using grease on the hinges makes for a smoother operating door.

Using grease on the hinges extends hinge life

Greasable hinges last forever.

Look at the Schweiss hinge, it has more lubricated surface area to give you longer life

Others rely on bushing FOR LUBRICATION

Doors move and flex as they open and close. The forces on each hinge vary during operation.

Not all bushings wear evenly.

Bushing wear thin over time.

Worn bushings offer less lubrication.

Less hinge surface area to distribute the door loads across the door header tube.

No way to inspect the bushings when the hinge pins are welded in - not removeable for inspection.

Almost impossible to replace the bushings when the hinges pins are welded in solid.

greasEable hinges LAST FOREVER!

Doors are always moving and flexing

Spherical bearings reduce stress and wear on the cylinders, cylinder pins and clevises during operation "No one else in the industry offers this unique feature" only available on Schweiss Doors...

Hydraulic doors are large in size and just like an airplane wing, the doorframe flexes during operation. The hydraulic cylinders on each side of the doorway are connected to the doorframe and the building using spherical bearings. The spherical bearings accommodate the flexibility of the doorframe while at the same time allowing the cylinders to raise and lower the door without binding on the hydraulic cylinder pins and brackets. Spherical Bearings on both ends of the cylinder allow the cylinders to stay straight through the full range of motion.

If there is a failure of a hydraulic component
the door needs to stop immediately!

Failed door, not from Schweiss, catches plane taxi

WARNING

When others are using restrictors or orifices to mitigate a hydraulic failure...

•  They may be setting you up for slow motion disaster, Your worst nightmare!

•  There's nothing safe about a door slowly, gently coming down on top of a plane or vehicle at a
"controlled rate of speed."

When phrases like these are being used to explaining what happens in event of a
hydraulic failure using restrictors/orifices

•  "Gently coming all the way down..."

•  "Coasting down..."

•  "Controlled rate of decent..."

•  "Preveting the door from slamming down..."

When manufactures use Restrictors or Orifices on their cylinders...

•  Inadequate safety built in

•  Door will come all the way down if theres a failure, no matter what.

•  No way of stopping the door from coming all the way down

•  Slow motion disaster . . . Your worst nightmare!

ASK YOURSELF...

"How safe can it be when the door doesn't stop in the event of a hydraulic failure? "

...IT'S NOT

Find out what your getting when
you order your hydraulic door...

The Schweiss way uses better safety features

Restrictors / Orifices

The door will not stop if a hydraulic component fails.

The door is coming down on whatever is underneath it.

Slowing the door as it comes down isn't good enough.

Velocity Fuses / Counter Balance

Stops the door immediately! Standard from Schweiss.

velocity fuse and counter balances are a better safety feature

THE SCHWEISS WAY!
Stopping the door completely in the event of a hydraulic component failure can be accomplished with a velocity fuse or a counter balance. THE SCHWEISS WAY
Restrictors or orifices...
Have been used by some manufacturers as a safety feature.
