The “Sustainable” Single Panel Hydraulic Door System

Sustainable means “pertaining to a system that maintains its own viability by using techniques that allow for continual reuse.” By replacing bifold or roller shutter doors with a Hydroswing® single panel agricultural door on your equipment and/or process buildings, you will probably never have to replace the door again. Hydroswing® is a sustainable solution to all your door needs.


The simplicity of a single panel hydraulic door compared to bifold and roller shutter doors changes face of agricultural buildings. With a Hydroswing®, (complete in its own frame, pre hung, ready to go “pillar to pillar” and right to the header), the wider you go, the better value it becomes. Safe and easy-to-use, the Hydroswing® provides almost zero in life service costs and therefore a guaranteed return on your investment. 

 

When farmers, ranchers and biomass producers consider the potential for door replacement in their older buildings, more and more they are turning to the single panel hydraulic door solution. With internal personnel doors, wind loadings to cope with forces of 200 MPH and strength to keep valuable machinery locked in and secure, the Hydroswing® offers the most attractive and cost effective source in the marketplace today. (Financing made easier than ever through our new equipment leasing program. ) For tractor security, plant and machinery security, Hydroswing® is the only choice for farm, biomass fuel, industrial and grain storage building doors.

 

 The difference is clear to see in the photo above, where one of three buildings has had two roller shutter doors replaced by one efficient, single panel hydraulic door. This addition adds door size, value, and in some instances, may allow you to use old buildings in ways previously not thought possible without constructing a new building. Concentrating on what you do with your building or shed is more important to your bottom line than replacing a door every two or three years.


The Hydroswing® will not pop out of its rails, rust away, flap in the wind, or allow pigeons or other birds in via the roller. With 70% less moving parts than a bifold, the Hydroswing® seals all the way round its own frame, and if required for food regulations, can be made 100% rodent proof. 

 Add value, size and efficiency by replacing your warn out or dangerous bifold or roller shutter doors to your biomass fuel store, grain store or agricultural buildings with a Hydroswing®. Sustain your door for years to come. Buy or lease a Hydroswing today.

 

 

 

Looking to Replace your Hangar Door?

15. July 2014 11:25 by Hydroswing in Farm Doors, Hangar Doors

Hydroswing® takes pride in meeting the needs of aircraft owners and facilities worldwide. Whether it’s new build hangars and the retrofit market, or replacing yesteryear’s aging number of unserviceable hangar doors, Hydroswing® brings the best to the marketplace.

The main issues facing airports and airfield owners, operators and tenants are the cost of hangar door replacement, return on investment, increase in door size, overall efficiency and the time it takes to install. The question Hydroswing® hears most is “do I have to replace my building or over build its door end structure?” The answer is NO. In most instances, you don’t have to scrap your building, just because your old door system is beyond economic service.

 


The Hydroswing® single panel hydraulic door easily replaces bifold, bottom rolling, concertina, stacking, barn, fabric, sectional/sliding and large roller shutter doors, in aviation facilities, private hangars, helicopter hangars and MRO facilities around the globe. There is minimal load and reaction levels to existing structures because Hydrowswing® is pre hung on in its own frame. This allows for a simple removal of old door and in many cases, no additional structural work. Our customers quickly see the benefits of “going big,” increasing the height to the eaves, and increasing the size of the hangar to the maximum of the building frame width or section.

 

If you’re in aviation, you’ve seen bad doors. Broken (and dangerous) bi-folds, torn fabric sliders, self-built disasters, and inefficient rollers and stackers can cost more than they’re worth to repair. Chains, pulleys, straps and too many parts can invariably lead to a break down and possibly an accident where someone may be injured or even killed. So isn’t it time for a change?

Cost effective, safe, and accommodating in sizes up to 150’(45.0 m) wide  X 40’(12.0 m) high, our hydraulic door is being retrofitted in commercial aviation facilities, private airplane and helicopter hangars alike. Simplicity, strength, ease of use and reduction in moving parts, plus use of cladding (which makes the door match the thermal characteristics of the building) are among the top reasons customers are making the switch to Hydroswing®. The sophistication of single panel hydraulic doors is now part of everyday door use across the aviation sector.

 

The original Hydroswing® hydraulic door is the ideal replacement for any kind of hangar door on any kind of structure. You can get the door you want now for ZERO DOWN. Call us today!

 

 

The Advantages of Leasing an Original Hydroswing® Hydraulic Door

The outstanding engineering, space saving quality, ease-of-use and increased productivity delivered by the Hydroswing® is now available through our new “game changing” door leasing program.  This is an industry first for hydraulic doors, and Hydroswing® is proud to once again be in front of the pack.

 

So why should you lease a hydraulic door?


• Technology is moving and changing. Outdated bi-fold, slider and roller doors are quickly becoming obsolete (and in some cases, dangerous.) Even if you don’t have the cash on hand, you can still have the original and best hydraulic door on the market.
• If the door is used as a part of your business, there is the potential to enjoy a tax break because the lease payments will be fully deductible.
• The Hydroswing® door lease requires ZERO down.
• Low payments! This will free up your cash to invest back into your business.
• Total lease payments are almost always less than the original cash price of the equipment.
• Whether you choose a short-term lease (two to three years) or a long-   term lease (four to five years), your payment will only be for the selected term.
• At the end of the lease and you’ll have a $1.00 buyout or FMV (Fair Market Value) buy out and the warranty that you had in place will assure your Hydroswing® door unit is as good as the day you first installed it and opened it.

 

 Pre hung, pre assembled and ready to install, when fitted to existing buildings, the Hydroswing® single panel hydraulic door adds strength and valuable return to buildings which might have been previously seen as past their useful life. In the event you build new to replace the old, unbolt the Hydroswing® and simply refit your Hydroswing® to your new building, (or Hydroswing® can do this for you).


For ZERO down and payments starting as low as $49.99 per week, you truly can have it all: Single panel door simplicity, powerful and smooth hydraulic rams, solid tube steel construction, pre hung, no top or bottom rails, no sectional seals, no wasted wall or outside area conflicts, push button operation, exceptionally low operating and service costs.

Introducing Hydroswing® Leasing -The Best and Original Hydroswing® Hydraulic Door Can now be Leased as Equipment

It’s no secret that equipment leasing is a leading choice for the agriculture, aviation and industrial sectors.  With equipment being the mainstay, owners have looked to leasing to help the cash flow crunch while allowing them to quickly acquire the latest technology. Since 1960 private fixed investment in equipment increased from $29.7 billion to almost $1 trillion in 2012. In 2013, that number continued to rise. Nonetheless, the economy has made it difficult for businesses to part with cash, even though they are in need of new equipment. Leasing solves that problem. And now Hydroswing® enters the arena and expands the possibilities across all sectors. A door is no longer a door. Thanks to Hydroswing® Leasing, any hydraulic door we manufacture can be considered a piece of working capital equipment.

 

In agriculture alone, leasing of equipment exceeds $6 billion in annual volume in the United States. In aviation, approximately 30% of the world’s aircraft are leased, and that number continues to increase. Leasing works and Hydroswing® is on board. Hydroswing® Leasing is the first program of its kind to offer hydraulic doors as equipment: No money down, low payments ($49.99 per week) and a $1.00 buyout at the end of the lease. There will always be more old buildings than new, and with a Hydroswing® lease, it’s easier than ever to replace your obsolete door system and enjoy the efficiency and advanced technology of the original Hydroswing® hydraulic door. 

 Leasing a door is not as complicated as it seems. It’s a painless process that preserve your line of credit, let you keep your cash flow in place and can immediately add value to your business.  In addition, lessees can take an immediate write-off of dollars spent rather than waiting for equipment or storage facilities to depreciate over several years. You’ll also have the option of deduction 100% of your lease payment as a business expense. To make the package complete, a Hydroswing® lease allows for opportunity to eliminate or minimize shipping and install costs. It’s a “win win” all the way around.

Now everything is possible with a Hydroswing® door.
