Hydro-Power Doors By Schweiss
“Anyone can tell you what you want to hear and print fancy literature, but when it comes to buying a door, you don’t want to experiment with a cheap product,” says Schweiss Doors, manufacturer of hydraulic lift farm doors.

Schweiss Understands Hydraulic Doors

Schweiss has been manufacturing them for years. Other companies are just learning but Schweiss keeps improving their door designs after more than 30 years manufacturing. “We can deliver the best hydraulic door at the best price. Hydraulic doors are here to stay,” says Schweiss.

Customers Love Hydraulic Doors
The company says customers like hydraulic doors because they can see right away why they are superior. They’re powerful with fewer moving parts, require less headroom, save on building costs, and they’re easy to install.

Most Popular, Powerful Door On The Market

Schweiss says its Hydro Power hydraulic doors have become the most popular on the farm market. Because farm equipment keeps getting bigger and bigger, Schweiss Doors has found a comfortable niche with farmers building new machine sheds for their large equipment.
“Our sales have continued to grow because of the quality of our product. The same doors we sell to farmers also go to airports and the private aviation sector. Commercial door markets are catching on to our new design hydraulic doors as well,” says Schweiss.
Big doors are a large moving end wall and it’s most important that they work safely. “Our goal is to supply each customer with a door that will function flawlessly for years to come. We have done our homework - a door is the last place you want to skimp on material that will be moving and flexing every time it’s operated. We will never use C-Channels, or wood with tek screws to support a 1,000-lb. door just to cut costs,” says Schweiss.
The hydraulic pump that operates the door has its own self-contained power unit and stand that can be floor-mounted, wall-mounted, or mounted in a back utility room
where it is out of the way to give you a clean look and silent operation.
Schweiss says farmers often ask, “When a door is hanging straight out, doesn’t it put a lot of stress on the building?”
Schweiss responds that unlike other doors on the market, their doors are self-contained with their own subframe. All doors hang on the building and will find the weak point in a building’s design. “If building designers get lax with the building design for the door support and framing surrounding the doors, there could be problems.”

Don't Believe Everything You're Told

• Do not hang on your building
• Do not require any extra building strength
• Self-supporting framework - no addition al building structure braces needed
• Door can be left open in windy conditions
