New Bifold door Strap Latch design eliminates cables and pulleys
Schweiss Doors new Strap Latch design for Bifold doors is unlike other latching and locking mechanisms on the market. The new design will securely hold the door against your building in all positions; securing the door when partially open, and it will positively lock the door when closed. It will even help secure the door from wind gusts when the door is open, closed, or in any position as the door is in a moving operation.
The simplicity of the new latch strap is truly amazing! Straps do the lifting and now straps do the latching! Schweiss did away with all the cables, chains, sprockets and pulleys; and it now has 90 percent less moving parts. This is a real game changer in the bifold door world. It doesn’t get any better than an all-strap door.
Some manufacturers still continue to sell cable lift bifold doors that require frequent maintenance due to fraying, breaking and overwrapping. They open slower, are hard to adjust, are noisier and are not as safe as liftstrap doors. In today’s world, you wouldn’t buy a car without air conditioning. Why would you buy a bifold door without liftstraps. Cable doors are now outdated.
