The music arena converts easily from an intimate 4000-seat concert hall to an 8000-seat amphitheater, named the Pavilion at The Music Factory, the $40 million centerpiece of the complex. At the exterior of the Pavilion, at the outside of the amphitheater, are a series of seven, side-by-side, bifold liftstrap doors, ranging from 35 ft. 1 in. to 36 ft. 9 in. in width. All seven doors have a clear opening height of 25 ft., 6 in.


The engineered Schweiss Doors bifold liftstrap doors are equipped with the newly patented Schweiss automatic strap latch system, door base safety edges, 3-phase top-drive motors, black liftstraps and full length windrails that cap off the roller assembly. Roy Weisinger of Hangar Rental Inc. of Brookshire, Texas, installed the bifold doors.
