Schweiss Doors has made another unique design improvement to its hydraulic one-piece doors with the addition of “spherical” bearings.
All Schweiss “Red Power” Hydraulic Doors, which in many cases and large and heavy doors, are now built with spherical bearings. During an extensive testing phase, the company’s design team discovered they provided a stronger, longer lasting door with safe and smooth operation.
Spherical bearings are not something new, but they are “new” to the door industry. They are being used and have been used in tractor 3-point hitches, planters, drawbars, car suspensions, engines, driveshafts, heavy machinery and many other applications.
Schweiss Hydraulic Door spherical bearings are strategically located between the teardrop area and cylinder plate at each end of the doors’ large lifting and closing cylinders. Each door frame has a certain amount of deflection when in operation. Spherical bearings allow for less friction, eliminate binding, wear and damage to a door cylinder and take up any flexing of the door frame.
