Schweiss Doors Now Offers a ‘Build Your Own Door Kit’


Schweiss Doors has designed and figured out a simple way for customers to build their own hydraulic doorframe without sacrificing the Schweiss quality and the unique design features we offer!

Benefits of building your own hydraulic one-piece door is not only rewarding but it can save you thousands of dollars. We have customers that start out with one door and soon after they are ordering their second and third doors.

SchweissWe realized the great demand for the popular Schweiss hydraulic door design and figured out a way for customers who are willing to weld their own steel doorframes together to purchase our major hydraulic door components that are properly sized from Schweiss Doors.

The challenge when figuring out the Build Your Own Door Kit, was to be able to develop a hinge that comes preassembled, prewelded and is robust in design. By going back to the drawing board the design team had its work cut out — the end results were very rewarding. In the design process we figured out a uni-body hinge design that wraps around the steel doorframe members, making it the strongest, most reliable hinge design in the door industry. It now includes the first of its kind hydraulic hinge on the market with grease zerks where hinges can be greased from inside the building. Others either have no grease zerks or you must remove the outside rubber gasket at the top of the door to
get to the grease zerks; very costly, timely and hard to get to. So guess what? The hinges are most likely left unlubricated! The Hydraulic Door Kit consists of a complete set of new design heavy-duty end and center hinges with grease zerks, a factory wired Red Power hydraulic unit and all the seals necessary to provide a weathertight door.
