"The Schweiss website does a nice job without harpooning the competition. Their presentation makes it very clear that there is a difference. Plus it pointed out additional resources to help me figure out those differences on my own. The quality of the product is special. I'm a quality focused buyer so being able to access a top quality product was of high importance. I love the clean, simple operation of the hydraulic door. We had to do some engineering so the door accommodated the hip roof design of my hangar. The whole Schweiss experience was very good. They were very patient with me.”
"I researched over a year what I wanted to do. I met Dave Schweiss at the Florida 'Fun in the Sun' air show and both Dave and Mike at the big Oshkosh, WS show. After meeting the guys and looking more closely at their product the choice was obvious. It simply was the best fit, the best design, the best door and in terms of value, the best deal. I was impressed with the engineering design and the workmanship. The 'stoutness' of the door was significant to my engineering eye. "I push the button and they see this huge door quietly open. This door is pretty much the showpiece of the building."
“I was looking for door speed. We're out here in the wide-open Minnesota prairie and this challenging winter was a prime example. When I'm running semi rigs in and out of our heated shop, you want a quick opening/closing door when it's 10 degrees below zero with 20-30 mile per hour winds blasting out of the northwest. In the total scheme of operational efficiency this does make your buildings that much more functional."
"The contractor that sold me the building has people coming here every week it seems to check out the building and especially that big hydraulic door. So it's a real treat for me and my farming partner son Dana, to show them the works. Schweiss has an incredible web site showing their different doors installed in several locations. You see how things work and how to custom fit their doors to most any building. I liked what I saw so I got on the phone and told them what I wanted. They told me the delivered cost to my farm. It was just about that simple. I can't say enough about it. Any machinery we've got you can just run it in and run it out. That big 40 ft. door really makes our machinery management work that much more convenient.”
"Delivering my other door up a 4,000 ft. mountain was quite a task but the Schweiss guys got it there. It was through the woods, up the hills, over the bridges, etc., but they got the job done. I've been into building design and architecture all my life. So it didn't take much thinking to go Schweiss for my carriage house too. These two hydraulic helicopter hangar doors are perfect. No loss of headroom. Very well built. Just lots of structural integrity. Schweiss makes a very good product and we've been very happy with their service. The doors were delivered on time as scheduled. It's the only door I would consider.”
"We checked the Internet for airport hangars and found Schweiss, this Minnesota firm that apparently builds doors to any dimension. Their web site showed all sorts of unique installations. And that's how the idea of a 'window wall' came into being. Using a steel frame for the building turned out to be quite fortuitous, as we were able to weld the door's steel header and side supports to the frame of the house for increased strength. Our dual solar panel energy package charges a bank of batteries for art studio lighting, also including a 12-volt marine-grade battery that powers the hydraulic lift system that opens and closes the 1,700 lb. 'window wall' door. One battery easily handles the door.”
"We knew about Schweiss, the Schweiss name was nothing new. I'm totally satisfied with the results. We haven't had any issues with the Schweiss door. The big 30' Schweiss hydraulic simply makes it easier to get big equipment, tractors with duals, combines, field cultivators, etc., in and out of the shop.
"I don't even know the warranty on these Schweiss doors and I'm not concerned. I know that I'm going to be taken care of and that's what counts. Each door is insulated for about an R30 factor. Plus Schweiss designed two windows for each door for added visibility and safety."
"Those doors are quite impressive. The museum itself was named one of the 10 best new projects in the world by an architectural publication, Azure magazine, for 2013."
"The doors have lived up to their expectations. I do think they are well made. My experience working with Schweiss Doors was good. It was a tough job for us because of the complexity and uniqueness of the design. Brent (from Schweiss Doors) was always there, willing to pick up the phone, take the call, reply to emails. He definitely is an asset for your company to say the least, He was always very professional, responsive and that meant a whole bunch."
"Our new Schweiss bifold doors have converted our existing building into a modern, usable structure. Not only does our building look great, but it functions 100% better with the help of our bifold door."
"We appreciate the professional installation crew who recently installed our Schweiss bifold door Your patience with all our questions during the purchase and installation process is much appreciated. Your attention to detail and helpful suggestions provided us with a T-hangar exactly like we wanted. We will definitely recommend Schweiss to other airports looking for hangar solutions."
"I can't believe I ever put up with a bifold door without a remote control. Thanks for your suggestion, Schweiss BiFold Doors! We couldn't be happier!"
"In building my 60'W X 40'D Wautoma, WI summer hangar, the one bright spot was dealing with and then using my Schweiss autolock remote door. I cannot say enough good things - either about Schweiss and their service OR the way the door operates. Being able to remotely command the door open and then taxi right in is an unbelievable experience! Every airplane owner ought to experience THAT. AND ... in physically comparing the Schweiss door to several of the competition ON the Y50 airport, the difference is immediately visible...even if you aren't a 'rocket scientist!' Folks...BUT A SCHWEISS DOOR...you won't be sorry ... PROMISE!! I will buy another...that's for sure. Dave, Mike, Julie ... THANK YOU! LARRY STENCEL, Palm Coast, FL"
"This was my first bi-fold door and I was a little afraid of installing it myself. Your staff made me feel totally at ease and Dave answered all of my questions. They are really easy to install and the automatic latches are a real timesaver when having to open the door in a hurry. I recommend them to everyone. Thanks Schweiss."
"Absolutely the best decision I have ever made. I had been contemplating a different door option, but after talking with my steel building company and your team it was quite obvious that Schweiss was the way to go. It was more economical, easier to install and the features that were available far surpassed any other door I had considered. I love it. Mike, Julie, Dave and Brook keep up the great work. Happy holidays to you and your team. AC"
"We built a shop in 1988 and decided to put a 24X14 Schweiss bi-fold door in. And in the last 15 years we have not had any major repairs to contend with. In fact we have replaced the lift cables only twice. And after talking to Mike I'm thinking of updating the lift system to the new straps. I can't say enough good things about these doors. Mark Dallmann"
"No airport hangar door should be anything but a Schweiss Bi-Fold Door. Everyone here appreciates the remote control feature! Thanks Schweiss!"
"When we decided our hangar doors needed replacing, Schweiss's installation crew made our upgrade smooth and easy. The state-of-the-art technology with our hangar doors is truly second to none."
"I found Schweiss Bi-Fold Doors on the Internet. What a site! The information made choosing a bifold door a fun process, and all the information I needed was right there in front of me."
