Project: University Of Canterbury – Earthquake Laboratory

Location: Christchurch

Builders: Dominion Constructors

Products: Schweiss Strsap Lift Bi-Folding Doors


The UOC contracted Glideaway to supply and install two Schweiss Strap Lift Bi-Folding Garage Doors for their new laboratory.
This beautiful, large structure required doors which would not protrude into the interior of the building. Additionally, they had to be large enough to accommodate truck and machinery traffic.
The Schweiss Strap Lift Bi-Folding garage door is the best solution for this type of situation. Mounted to the external face of the structure and opening outward, they cause zero internal protrusion.
Ultimately, Glideaway supplied the Bi-Folding garage doors as bare frames and were clad onsite once in place with King Span Insulated panels.

These doors are perfect for industrial, aircraft hangers, mining and many other applications.
