How it all started?
In 1980, at a wedding dance, Schweiss Door’s owner, Mike Schweiss, received a suggestion from a friend: “Mike, you build lots of different things. Why not a door that folds up?” This idea was the starting point for Schweiss Door’s unique folding door design. Although the friend who made the suggestion tragically passed away that same evening, his idea lived on. Schweiss Door’s first door was a 12′ x 12′ bifold that was installed on a Renville County Highway shed. Remarkably, this door is still in operation today. At the time, Schweiss and his small team of three employees were manufacturing various farm equipment, including the Schweiss Chicken Plucker. It was the Chicken Plucker that initially brought Schweiss some name recognition and paved the way for his focus on door manufacturing.
We take pride in providing our customers with a wide range of options when it comes to custom-made doors. Our doors are available in sizes that range from 6′ width all the way up to 140′. We offer three distinct styles of doors, including the recently designed Liftstrap Bifold door, the innovative “One-Piece” Hydraulic door, and our premium Architectural Designer Door lines. At Schweiss Doors, we’ve built a reputation for being highly adaptable and staying ahead of the curve in the door industry. We’re committed to pushing boundaries and setting new trends, which has allowed us to remain a trusted and respected name in the industry for years.
HYDRAULIC ONE-PIECE DOORS
The construction industry is being revolutionized by Schweiss Doors and their one-piece Hydraulic doors. These doors are gaining popularity among builders due to their tough and sleek design, as well as their smooth and noiseless operation. What truly sets Schweiss Doors apart from their competitors is their patented wrap-around hinge design, which comes equipped with grease zerks, double push tubes, spherical bearings, hydraulic windpins, and heavy-duty cylinders, providing unmatched stability. These oversized doors are highly sought after for various applications, such as agricultural buildings, aircraft hangars, and residential designer doors. One satisfied builder expressed, “When it comes to Hydraulic doors, nothing beats the quality of Schweiss Doors!”
THE LEADER IN “DESIGNER DOOR” WORLD
Schweiss has become a catalyst for interest from architects and builders all over the country. Our philosophy is simple: “You Think It, We’ll Build It.” If you ask any owner of a Schweiss Designer Door, chances are they’ll tell you that investing in one of our bifold or hydraulic doors was one of the smartest decisions they’ve ever made. While the aesthetics of our doors are certainly impressive, what truly sets them apart is their quality construction and longevity, ensuring reliable and efficient performance for years to come. Schweiss glass designer doors are designed to enhance the look of both interior and exterior spaces. Our doors blend in so well that they can sometimes be mistaken for room dividers or moving glass walls. We offer a variety of decorative door coverings that can be clad with siding to seamlessly blend in with adjacent walls. Additionally, you can choose from glass, metal or vinyl siding, decorative wood, translucent panels, custom windows and trim, stucco, rock face material, and more to create a unique, one-of-a-kind door with its own distinctive style. Our Designer Doors are ideal for a wide range of applications, from homes and restaurants to stadiums, museums, RV garages, and beyond. Whether you’re in the market for a hydraulic or bifold style door, Schweiss has you covered with our exceptional line of Designer Doors.
When it comes to doors, safety should always be the top priority. An unsafe door not only poses a risk to your property, but to life itself. On the other hand, a safe door provides the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your property and those inside it are protected. If you’re considering updating your hangar door, it’s important to evaluate the safety features and precautions that are built in or may need to be added in order to ensure safe and reliable operation for years to come. Be sure to confirm that the door has all the necessary safety and compliance features, such as photo eyes, safety edges, and limit switches, which are designed to stop the door when it’s opening or closing. This will not only provide added safety, but also help to extend the life of your door.
