  • Each steel overhead door comes prehung with frame.
  • One-piece steel overhead door frames are manufactured out of 2×4 tube.
  • Vertical doorframe members are 2×4 tubing
    (Schweiss does not use C-Channels).

    easy to install (Schweiss does not use tec screws

HYDRAULIC DOOR FRAME MANUFACTURING

All Schweiss hydraulic doors are factory welded and made of structural steel tubing. The steel overhead doors are hinged horizontally at the top of the frame using heavy-duty hinges by each upright tube on the doorframe, which evenly distributes the load onto your door, building, truss and header. Hinges are pre-located at the factory to align with the building and truss members. The one-piece hydraulic door swings outward, away from the building. In the open position, the door will be laying flat at 90°. Doors are trussed to provide extra strength. Extra metal in the right places reduces bowing or sagging when the door is open or closed. Steel overhead doors are fully assembled from the factory, saving you hours of installation time.

HEAVY-DUTY HYDRAULIC DOOR TRUSSES

All of our doors are manufactured with webbed trusses to provide extra strength. The truss is located near the very bottom of the door. We have two styles of trusses.

STYLE ONE – EXTERNAL WEBBED TRUSS – STANDARD

  • Placed on the outside of doorframe.
  • Visible from the outside of the door/ building.
  • Lose No Headroom.
  • Optional: A raised external truss available.

STYLE TWO – INTERNAL TRUSS – OPTIONAL

  • Placed on the inside of doorframe. Nice clean look.
  • Cannot be seen from the outside of the door / building.
  • Weather elements are not a problem.
  • Additional headroom required with this style.

Heavy-duty Hinges for One-Piece Steel Hydraulic Door Frames

Hinges are mounted on a self-supporting, pre-mounted, continuous header tube. All hinges are self-contained on the doorframe, which makes the door easy to install. Hinge pins are 1″ in diameter and are attached to 3/8″ thick hinge plates.

Our new hydraulic door wrap-around hinge design has grease zerks on every hinge and is greaseable from inside your building. Schweiss does not weld its hinge pins in solid.

LIFT POINTS – 2 HEAVY-DUTY HYDRAULIC CYLINDERS

Hydraulic doors are opened with two hydraulic cylinders. Located on each end of the door. Schweiss provides extra heavy-duty cylinders that will give you many years of trouble free operation.

  • The doors vertical subframe members attach to the buildings door side columns.
