70: Tilt Up Concrete Panels


Q: Hello Schweiss: We have a 30' wide x approx 10' high tilt-up concrete panels for an opening where we would like to install a horizontally bifolding Schweiss strap door. We would be interested in learning more about your doors, and learn if you only sell the complete frame and mechanism, or if, because of our location, you would sell the mechanisms along with some guidance for a local fabricator to construct the door frame here.  


Q: We are a Tilt-up Concrete Builder and would like to know if you have ever installed a Schweiss bi-fold strap door on a Tilt-up Building. Also, we are designing our building to receive (2) 18'x55' bi-folding doors. I would like to know if you have a cross-section detail of this door for our engineers to work with. We need to know the clear height required for the interior roof framing. Thank you.


Q: Schweiss Door bid: Bifold Strap version, wind rails, center pin, cold weather seal. Mounting will be recessed for flush look. Metal sheeting will be outside finish and inside will be insulated. Building has tilt up concrete panels.
