Architecture is constantly evolving… The trend in contemporary architectural design is to unite indoor and outdoor living spaces. With hydraulics in play, the functionality of doors and walls completely changes.  The Hydroswing® single panel hydraulic door system has become a blank canvas for the adventurous architects who specialize in high profile homes, commercial buildings and other special applications. In the past, architects were limited by how doors and walls function, but now the possibilities are endless. Walls up to 150' (45m) wide and 40' (12m) tall can be converted into artistic, useful and cost effective hydraulic doors that can create a unique and completely functional indoor/outdoor experience. With almost 100% seal-ability, design dynamics with a Hydroswing® hydraulic door are revolutionizing the way architects can create buildings and homes.  

Think of what can happen when walls become doors and doors become walls. Architectural problems can be solved and boundaries can be moved. Innovative design can be incorporated into existing structures (or new builds) and the overall schematics of outside walls can expand. The Hydroswing® for architecture can be built to totally change anything from a single wall (or door) in a custom home to an entire commercial building. Where sliding windows and bifolds used to be standard for restaurants with outside patios, hydraulic doors can now be used to enhance light, maximize space, and will revolutionize the way architects include outdoor environments in the scope of their design. With the touch of button, the single panel door can transform hotels, stadiums, bars, restaurants, garages, homes and any other kind of structure that wants to “move a wall.” The added bonus: With the door in an “up” position, shade and protection are immediately created.  

The simplicity and safety of the hydraulic door removes the need for cables and counter weights used in so many ambitious architectural projects and curved facades. The Hydroswing® isn’t a “knock off” of an agricultural door – ours is the original and most sophisticated design on the market today. Engineered for performance and precision, the door can be easily installed to match building profiles with glass, wood, or heavy and ornate finishes. Hydroswing® doors lift easily and quietly with ease from the power of the hydraulic single panel door system. We can customize any installation and the sky’s the limit in terms of design. Our hydraulic cylinders can be powder coated or chromed to match or complement the interior door colors to seamlessly connect indoor and outdoor spaces.   

Hydroswing® is the industry expert in silently and effortlessly moving structures, and we offer a new frontier for imaginative and leading edge architects around the globe.
