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.

Back-up systems are available for Schweiss bifold and hydraulic doors in case of a power outage.

The new powerful Schweiss hydraulic door pump unit is all self-contained and can be mounted on the wall or tucked away anywhere on the building floor. Hydraulic doors feature three back-up systems.

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, 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.
