Liftstrap Conversion Kit

Schweiss Doors has an easy to install liftstrap retrofit conversion kit available to upgrade your existing door. Schweiss designed and patented custom-made polyester liftstraps provide a new and much safer alternative to steel cables. No more cables or pulleys to adjust. Liftstraps offer more lifting ability and will vastly outlast cables. The strength-to-weight ratio on the 3-inch straps is rated at 29,000 lbs. tensile strength, compared to a ¼-inch cable, which only gives you a 7,200 lb. rating. The liftstraps wrap around the lift drum as the door opens, increasing the size of the drum. The larger the drum’s circumference, the faster the door opens. Schweiss liftstraps never rust, never tangle or overwrap, and have a 10-year warranty. Available with autolatches and remotes. For more information, call at 800.746.8273, or visit
