It is important that you talk with your contractor and the building manufacturer to make sure that your building’s structural design can handle a hydraulic door. A hydraulic door exerts a large amount of weight on the door header, endwall, and overall structure of the building. Show your contractor and building owner the overhead hydraulic door specifications to ensure that your building can handle it. Hydraulic doors tend to pull away from the building at the hinge line when they are in a full open position. Horizontal loads can exert considerable pressure on the building structure when the hydraulic door is in the open position, which can wear on the hydraulic door hinge and the building. In order for the hydraulic door to be properly supported, the building header design must meet the standard criteria for both deflection and strength, both vertically and horizontally. This is the only way to ensure that the hydraulic door can be supported in all positions.
Schweiss Hydraulic Doors provides our A-1, A-2, A-3, and A-4 spec sheets so that you can see the loads that would be applied to your building and door. These spec sheets include the information that you will need to make accurate measurements so you can rest assured knowing that your building can handle the load of a hydraulic door. Call (507) 426-8273 if you need any assistance or have any additional questions about hydraulic doors.
