Schweiss Announces Development Of Build Your Own Door Kit


Hector, MN - For those willing to do some work to save some money, Schweiss Doors has developed the Build Your Own Door Kit. Customers willing to weld their own frames can purchase the company’s properly sized major hydraulic door components to complete their own doors.

One of the challenges Schweiss Doors faced when figuring out the Build Your Own Door Kit was to develop a hinge that comes pre-assembled, pre-welded and is robust in design. Schweiss’ uni-body hinge design does just that, wrapping around the steel doorframe members, making it the strongest, most reliable hinge design in the industry. It includes a first-of-its-kind hydraulic hinge with grease zerks located so hinges can be greased from the inside.

The kit includes a complete set of new-design, heavy-duty end and center hinges, strong cylinders, a factory wired Red Power hydraulic unit and all the seals necessary to construct a weathertight door.

Design software provides door specs, weights and forces, along with specific details for accurate construction and installation. Schweiss Doors will provide an easy-to-read blueprint and complete steel list with steel member lengths and sizes required. Build Your Own Door specifications and measurements also include sheeting trim lengths and step-by-step installation manuals.

“It’s now easy and simple for customers to manufacture the steel doorframe with these door components, making the door kit user-friendly, thereby allowing hydraulic doors to be built in your own shop,” says Mike Schweiss, owner of Schweiss Doors. “The Build Your Own Door Kit reduces delivery cost to the end-user and savings are further compounded by having the customer build their own door.”
