Schweiss Doors offers liftstrap conversion kits for bifold doors
New liftstrap conversion kits are now available for your tired old hangar door.
Other than aircraft owners who need bifold or hydraulic doors for their new or existing hangars, the next most frequent request that Schweiss Doors receives is from hangar owners who want to upgrade their doors with a Schweiss Bifold liftstrap retrofit conversion to replace outdated cable lift systems. A majority of these requests are for doors made by other manufacturers.

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 Doors has been happy to accommodate all these requests that have been coming in from throughout the United States and abroad. A liftstrap conversion kit is now available that comes with easy do-it-yourself install instructions, or Schweiss Doors can do the retrofit for you.

Liftstraps vastly outlast cables, you no longer have cables or pulleys to adjust and cables have been known to break, causing damage to expensive aircraft and machinery. Schweiss liftstraps never rust, tangle or overwrap and are guaranteed for 10 years. As your bifold door opens, liftstraps wrap around the lift drum increasing the size of the lift drum and thereby causing your door to open faster.
Liftstrap doors can be ordered with autolatches and remote openers, so with just a push of a button your bifold hangar door is automatically secure, sealed tight from weather, water and wind.
