Beautiful Ohio airpark hangar accented by recessed bifold door

JT Strange and his family are in the process of building their new home alongside their just finished hangar in the Obannon Creek Aerodrome Airpark located in Goshen, Ohio. The newly-built hangar needed a big 45 ft. x 15 ft. 11” door for his Cessna 182T, which he also uses for business in nearby Milford, Ohio.
To fill that need he decided on a Schweiss bifold liftstrap/autolatch door. JT is a National Service Specialist and Consultant for Diamond Machine Tool in Milford, Ohio and uses his plane for business and pleasure purposes. He’s been flying for about five years.
Bob Beckman of R.D. Beck Services, LLC in Harrison, Ohio has been selling and installing Schweiss bifold and hydraulic doors since 1999. He said that JT Strange asked for a Schweiss bifold liftstrap/autolatch remote opening door to be installed by Beckman on his new hangar. He also requested that Beckman install the door and sheeting with black corrugated sheeting on a horizontal configuration instead of vertical as some others will do.

Schweiss Doors has ‘Back-up’ systems for your door in case of power outage

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 on this. 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 back-up.

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 we never
fail to innovate new products in the door market.
