Schweiss Doors Introduces A “Build Your Own” Door Package

HECTOR, MINN. – For those willing to do some work to save some money, Schweiss Doors has developed a Build Your Own Door Kit. Customers willing to weld their own steel doorframes may purchase the company’s properly sized major hydraulic door components.

One of the challenges when figuring out the Build Your Own Door Kit was to be able to develop a hinge that comes pre-assembled, pre-welded and is robust in design. The key is Schweiss’ uni-body hinge design that wraps around the steel doorframe members, making it the strongest, most reliable hinge design in the industry. It includes a first-of-its-kind hydraulic hinge with grease zerks located so hinges can be greased from the inside.

The kit includes a complete set of new design heavy duty end and center hinges, strong cylinders, a factory wired Red Power hydraulic unit and all the seals necessary to construct a weathertight door, allowing the owner to manufacture the steel doorframe at a considerable savings.

Design software provides door specs, weights and forces, along with specific details for accurate construction and installation. Schweiss Doors will provide an easy-to-read blueprint and complete steel list with steel member lengths and sizes required to get you started.

“It’s now easy and simple for customers to manufacture the steel doorframe with these door components, making the door kit user-friendly, thereby allowing hydraulic doors to be built in your own shop,” says Mike Schweiss, owner of Schweiss Doors. The Build Your Own Door Kit saves the customer money in manufacturing and delivery.

Schweiss Doors is the premier manufacturer of hydraulic and bifold lift-strap doors. Doors are custom made to any size for any type of new or existing building for architects and builders determined to do amazing things with their buildings, including the doors.
