Schweiss Doors, a Minnesota-based company that provides bifold and hydraulic one-piece doors for aircraft hangars, businesses and other installations, has developed a new hydraulic pump system that goes by the trade name of “Red Power.”
Mike Schweiss, owner of the company, said since it was first introduced at various trade shows around the U.S. many pilots have been asking for it by name.
“Over the years we rolled together our customer comments, combined with our knowledge and experience, and turned it over to our talented Schweiss design team to perfect. What’s really nice for the buyer is that we don’t charge them a penny more for this new pump than they paid before. It goes on all our hydraulic doors and is made at our factory,” said Schweiss.
The Red Power Hydraulic Pump comes to the buyer in a compact unit, ready to be mounted where the buyer wants it, whether it be on a wall, top-hung, floor or back room. Its power comes in 2 hp to 10 hp from a LEESON motor, company officials said, noting it is more powerful and smoother.
It also features the Safety Advantage System and three back-up systems, which allow the door to lock up and down and safely lower the door in an emergency from ground level. The hydraulic directional control valve has a built-in manual override. Back-up systems are all in the same compact unit. In case of electrical failure a pilot or user can utilize a DC battery, tractor hydraulic or a drill with a 7/16: hex head to raise or lower the door.
Schweiss Doors continues to manufacture its patented lift strap system for bifold doors as well.
