Schweiss Doors has taken extreme pride in introducing its new POWERFUL RED AND GREEN POWER PUMPS to the world.
From the minute you press the control button or your handy remote control, you'll be amazed at how this door functions. It's everything you want it to be and more.
The unit has all the bells and whistles and comes with single or 3-phase electrical components. Easy to read psi pressure gauge, service filter and fluid temp gauges let you know that the door is always working properly and at full capacity. Everything is in one compact hydraulic pump unit powered by 2, 3, 5 or 10 horsepower motors to safely lift even the smallest or heaviest doors and seal them tightly.
Schweiss Safety Advantages allow the door to lock up and down or safely lower or raise your door in case of electrical failure. Each unit comes with a standard tractor hydraulic hookup; lower the door at any time, very handy for agricultural or industrial applications. Specially designed built-in manual override allows the operator to lower the door in case of a power outage. Battery backup features that use a DC battery or drill to operate the door in either direction in case of an emergency, gives you a superior backup system for your door and peace of mind.
They're Powerful... We're talking THE most Efficient Pumps with Standard Motors designed ready to lift any size door, at any time, all the time!
• They're Reliable... Safe, Carefully Designed Hydraulic Pumps that operate at 95% efficiency.
• They're Quiet... An amazingly smooth, quietly operating pump system.
Over the years Schweiss factory engineers rolled together customer comments, combined with high-tech design knowledge and experience to come out with perfection in a compact pump unit ready to be mounted anywhere you
1 - Under Workbench - Hydraulic power unit can be
placed under a workbench or anywhere in the room.
2 - Wall Mount: Up or Down - mount anywhere away
from the door opening or even in another room.
3 - Stand Alone Unit - Complete stand-alone hydraulic
unit can be placed anywhere in the building.
4 - Up/Down/Stop Switch - Mounted near the door opening.
5 - Electrical Control Panel - Can be mounted independently
from the hydraulic pump.
Schweiss doorframes are designed with double push tubes that are tied directly into the wrap-around hinges that connect both vertical push tubes directly to the header tube. The advantage of double push tubes is that forces of hydraulic cylinders are evenly distributed to the doorframe and the wrap-around hinges.
"There have been hydraulic doors with hinge welds that failed, literally tearing off the doorframe and destroying the door," Schweiss says. "Our design team provided a durable wrap-around hinge with grease zerks that are accessible without removing the top rubber seal."
Schweiss hinges distribute the door loads evenly across the
self-supporting subframe greatly reducing stress on the building structure
The weight of the door and hydraulic forces exert loads on the hinge while the door is operating
The unique hinge design incorporates heavy hinge plates that wrap around each vertical push tube for added rigidity. Without this wrap around design, the doorframe members can be overstressed and begin to tear apart from door weight and hydraulic forces over time. This won't happen with a Schweiss Door!
Hydraulic doors operate with one set of top hinges. These hinges need to be strong enough to support the door weight and the hydraulic cylinder forces when opening; unlike a bifold door that shares the load between the top hinges and the center hinges.
The Schweiss robust hinges are designed to withstand the door weights and hydraulic forces of the cylinders as the door opens.
Your door is only as good as its hinges! Take one look at the Schweiss hinges and you will clearly see the workmanship, strength and functionality of each hinge. The Schweiss hinges are big... strong... heavy-duty.
Schweiss hinges can be easily greased for longer hinge life.
Schweiss is the only manufacturer to offer hinges that can
be greased from underneath the door without removing the
top weather seal.
Removable hinge pins are a better design...
They are never welded in solid on a Schweiss door.
Designed for easy maintenance
All hinge pins are removable.
Schweiss Doors didn't just wrap our head around heavy-duty bifold and hydraulic door hinges, we went
a step further and engineered a robust, user-friendly, greaseable hinges with a removable hinge pin.
The new hinge design, with grease points on every hinge segment enables bifold
door owners - whether they be private individuals or commercial customers -
to periodically grease their hinges from the underside
of the doorframe without having to go through the
cumbersome process of first removing the top rubber
Schweiss Doors is the only door manufacturer
to offer easily accessible greaseable door hinges
for hydraulic doors that can be greased from the
underside of the door without removing the top
LEARN MORE ABOUT . . .
Hinge surface area is critical on large moving hydraulic doors. Over the years, we all have heard of hinge failures on others doors. Large hydraulic cylinders are putting extreme forces on each of the outer hinges of the doorframe. Schweiss has designed and patented a robust hinge with more surface area to evenly distribute the loads of a moving one-piece doorframe. Look at the hinge surface area. The stresses on the very outer hinges are immense. With that being said, take one look at the patented Schweiss hinges and you'll clearly see the workmanship, strength and functionality of each hinge.
It's very important to be able to grease your hydraulic door hinges with a heavy viscosity grease. When grease is used on the hinges of a large moving door it avoids unnecessary wear and adds longer life to the hinge and the doors operation. It's a common manufacturing practice to use grease on the critical wear points and load points to avoid unnecessary wear just like in the industrial equipment world with implements such as payloaders, skidloaders and other industrial equipment that are being operated around the clock.
Spherical bearings reduce stress and wear on the cylinders, cylinders pins and clevises during operation
Hydraulic doors are large in size and just like an airplane wing, the doorframe flexes during operation. The hydraulic cylinders on each side of the doorway are connected to the doorframe and the building using spherical bearings. The spherical bearings accommodate the flexibility of the doorframe while at the same time allowing the cylinders to raise and lower the door without binding on the hydraulic cylinder pins and brackets. Spherical Bearings on both ends of the cylinder allow the cylinders to stay straight through the full range of motion.
"Soon as I saw and understood the spherical bearings design it was a no brainer. I was immediately SOLD on the Schweiss Hydraulic Door!"
