Full, Half or No Hood
Which Hood Cover?
You will find that many of the insulated aluminium roller garage doors in the market offer a full or half hood and even no hood.
It is not always obvious which one you should choose.
Sometimes it depends on the installation position or what the roller door is to be used for. If the roller door is low in height, it is advisable to have a full hood cover so the curtain cannot be accessed whilst in operation.
A full box, or hood cover completely covers the roll from the top, the back and most of the underneath section too. This would be an essential option if you were to install the door externally. The full hood cover will protect the curtain from the elements.
Half Box (Half Hood Cover)
The half box provides a fascia to the front and the top of the box.
No Box (No Hood Cover)
Roller Doors can be supplied with no hood cover and is quite acceptable. However, if you wish to protect the curtain from the elements, dust and debris then a full hood cover would be a better choice.
|A full hood completely conceals the roll. With this option it allows the roller doors to be fitted outside the garage. The hoods are supplied in white or brown as standard.||Neater Finish: The full hood cover option also adds a neater finish to your garage door when installed internally.|
This would need to be taken into consideration when choosing your roller garage door.

SeceuroGlide Roller Doors are extremely versatile and can accommodate curved or non-standard openings.
They may be fitted in any of the following ways:
Installed inside the opening. Here the inside edge of the guide rails line up with the brick opening.
Ideal where headroom inside the garage isn’t seriously restricted. Internal reveal fixing may be used to great effect in arched openings.
Installed outside the opening. Ideal where headroom is particularly restricted. Requires full box cover option for weatherproofing.
Installed within the opening itself. Maximises internal space in the garage whilst not obscuring the exterior of the garage. Requires good reveal headroom. Reveal fixing the roller door also reduces the drive through width of the door when open by the width of the guide rails chosen.
