PowerLift manufacturing locations and home office personnel attend many large and smaller shows around North America. Consider this your invitation to meet PowerLift people in person! Our ‘Events’ tab has a listing of shows we’ll be present at.

We would enjoy meeting you and discussing any new or existing building and door project you are considering for either personal or business use.

If you aren’t able to attend a nearby show, just contact us by phone, email or text! We’ll help you design the ideal door or opening wall for your project with any type of siding or appearance you desire.

New Year’s Resolution: Stop Struggling With Old Doors!

At PowerLift, a substantial part of our business is replacing doors that have become difficult to use. Sliding, bifold, fabric, and panel doors are easily replaced with a trouble free PowerLift door that opens at the touch of a button.

As you will see on each project shown here, PowerLift retrofits can increase your clear opening height and width. Our exclusive PowerLift outside mount doors install around the perimeter of your opening for zero headroom loss.
Contact us and we’ll help you design an ideal replacement door or opening wall on any building you own with doors that have become difficult to use.

Pool House Features Eight Glass Opening Walls.

The owners of this striking octagonal pool house, set high in the mountains among Ponderosa pines, chose to PowerLift create 8 opening glass walls for year round versatility and convenience. Three of these are full height and width at 15′ x 6′, the other three are bar top style measuring 15′ x 5′.

When closed, the reflective glass transforms these walls into works of art as they perfectly mirror the landscape, sunrises, sunsets, and cloud formations. Any or all of the PowerLift walls can be opened partially or fully to match the owners mood or adjust to weather conditions.
Contact us about the next opening wall project you have in mind! Your own personal wall doesn’t have to be clad in glass: any type of siding (or combination of sidings) can be easily included on a PowerLift wall system.


Please tell us about your glass wall project.


Faux sliders in PowerLift door.

From the road this new hip roof insulated shop presents a timeless look, even to the point of having traditional sliding doors. However, when the owners are using their shop, a 48′ x 16′ insulated PowerLift door opens at the touch of a remote for maximum access.

A PowerLift door is a blank canvas, offering you free rein for any artistic touches you’d like to add. Any style window, cladding, trim, mural, or aspect ratio is easily achieved.

Contact us and we’ll design the ideal door for your building project with any type of siding or appearance you desire.

Sketch out your idea and send it to us.

The genesis of this attractive PowerLift ‘Diamond M’ style retrofit door was a customer’s quick crayon sketch along with a picture of their building that had a damaged overhead door.

We pay close attention to every inquiry we receive about PowerLift doors, with or without an accompanying sketch! Just present us your vision in any form, and we’ll work closely with you to make it a reality.

Whether it’s a new building or a retrofit project, you will appreciate the expertise we have developed over the course of nearly 20,000 PowerLift door and opening wall installations.

Thanks for visiting us at Oshkosh!

It was a pleasure meeting so many of our PowerLift door customers last week in Wisconsin at the EAA Oshkosh show.

We also appreciate the many inquiries about and interest in PowerLift doors for both new construction and retrofit installations. PowerLift has the solution for every older hangar with worn-out sliding, bifold, or overhead doors.

Please contact us about a PowerLift door for your hangar door application. You will appreciate the confidence and quality our single source accountability and depth of experience bring to the table.

Old hangar before and after PowerLift!

A PowerLift door will make your old building feel and function like new! Access to this old hangar was via a complicated system of 6 overhead doors, which created large maintenance headaches. The center door was higher to allow taller tail aircraft access. All six doors were failing when the owner called PowerLift.

PowerLift designed a twin outside mount retrofit installation, substantially increasing clear opening height across the entire building. With a remote operator, pilots can now open either PowerLift door from the cockpit while taxiing in.

Contact us about a PowerLift retrofit – our extensive experience and personalized service will add a lifetime of usefulness to any building.

PowerLift Doors, Rapid City SD
PowerLift doors don’t arrive at your place as do-it-yourself kit packages. We build and deliver your door, then we install it in your building. PowerLift doors are not held together by bolts, screws or other fasteners: they are a single piece, all welded unit for a lifetime of structural integrity.
We can install a PowerLift door in any new or existing structure on your property: steel, post frame, Quonset, and hoop buildings are all easily fitted with a PowerLift door.
Contact us about your door plans. We’ll design, build, deliver and install a custom PowerLift door that is perfectly suited to your requirements.

Enhance steel building access with PowerLift.

Ease of entry in both new and old steel buildings is often limited by design limitations inherent with bifold, sliding, stacking or overhead doors. The building above was initially built with stacking doors that were hard to use and restricted opening width. The solution was a 90′ x 20′ PowerLift door retrofit. The other two steel buildings shown are both new construction with 90′ x 20′ and 66′ x 20′ PowerLift doors respectively.
Please contact us today! We can help you increase ease of access for any new or old steel hangar, farm structure or commercial building.

Q is for Quonset.

There are many older Quonset style buildings all across North America that are not functional due to door issues and failures. Sliding doors on most Quonset buildings extend beyond the building walls when open so wind damage is a constant threat.
We can maximize your Quonset opening height and width with a PowerLift retrofit door. A quick call to PowerLift will restore the usefulness of your Quonset building.

New life for old buildings.

So many old buildings have doors that are difficult to open and unsightly. The original doors  may be stuck open or fallen off, allowing free entry to birds, animals and human trespassers.
Whether your building is 20 or 100 years old, you can add years of life and greater usefulness by installing a PowerLift retrofit door.
In most cases ,we can also increase the size of your door opening, making your building even more useful. Please give us a call today!
