Schweiss Doors to show new product developments at Oshkosh
Schweiss Doors will have working display models of its two popular styles of hangar doors at Oshkosh 2018, July 23-July 29. Booths are set up at the following locations: EAA Exhibit Hangar D: Booths 4077 and 4078, 4079 and 4096, 4097 – 4098 and at Fly Market Booth 701 and Epic Aircraft Exhibit Hangar B Booth 3121.
Factory reps will be on hand to share many new developments and features of its custom-made hydraulic one-piece doors and patented liftstrap bifold doors.
Schweiss hydraulic doors feature heavy-duty wrap-around hinges with grease zerks, spherical bearings, larger cylinders and an improved pump with built in backup systems.
The unique hydraulic pump system contained all-in-one unit is the most efficient pump on the market. It uses a fast and quiet, fan-cooled LEESON 1,800 rpm motor starting at 2 h.p. and up depending on the size and weight of your door. Our pump unit gives you faster door speed when opening and closing giving a cycle time of less than a minute. The pump unit can be top or underhung and mounted on your hangar wall, floor, under a bench or in a back room.
Schweiss bifold liftstrap doors are the choice of many hangar owners because they are the best quality bifold door in the business and feature patented liftstraps and now are available with the new Schweiss liftstrap autolatch systems that does away with all cables, chains, sprockets and pulleys.
The patented custom-made polyester lift straps and autolatches provide a new and much safer alternative to steel cables and carry a 10-year warranty. No more cables or pulleys to adjust. Liftstraps offer more lifting ability and will vastly outlast cables. The strength-to-weight ratio on 3-inch straps is rated at 29,000 lbs. tensile strength, compared to a 1/4 cable that only gives a 7,200 lb. rating.
Schweiss doors are built to last, offer a larger clear opening with no loss of headroom, and have the ability to adapt to any new or existing large or small hangar.
