Before placing an order for a hydraulic or bifold door, have you given any thought to how you would get that big, heavy door open in case of a power outage?
This is an important consideration, not only for knowing how you will get your door
opened or closed if you need to, but as a safety precaution as well
Schweiss Doors, the leading manufacturer of hydraulic and bifold liftstrap doors, has you covered. Schweiss has backup systems that come standard with your door and
additional ones you may also consider.
Hydraulic tractor fittings come standard on all Schweiss hydraulic doors. In addition to
that the Schweiss hydraulic door can be opened or closed with a DC Battery-Motorized
back-up control station that operates with the press of a button. The new compact
hydraulic unit is also designed with a drill-driven back-up using a 7/16” hex head — just
attach a socket to raise and lower your door at any time or from any position.
Emergency door lowering can also be as simple as turning a screw on the pump. Your
large moving door will close at a controlled, safe speed, no matter the situation or
emergency. It’s that easy, no mess, no oil drains back into the tank.
All Schweiss bifold doors have an electrical disconnect to allow manual operation by an
emergency back-up system if power is lost. Bifold doors can be manually operated in the
event of a power outage using an emergency back-up hand crank, powered generator,
battery powered drill, tractor-powered hydraulic coupler fittings or 12 Volt D.C. emergency
Included is an electrical disconnect device to completely disable the door for service,
maintenance and emergency back-up operations. This will prevent the motor from
operating when manually operating the door.
For years Schweiss has been manufacturing only the highest quality doors and continues to innovate new products in the door market.
