Strength & Security
HydroSwing has introduced its new LiD (light industrial door) product line. Available in sizes up to 20x16 feet, the LiD delivers unequaled power, strength and security in a compact, economical package. It can replace weaker, more cumbersome roller-, shutter- and slider-access doors on existing buildings, and reduce building and heating costs by requiring significantly less building height on newer buildings.

Resolution x 300
