SWS SeceuroGlide Roller Door Installed Example

To give you an idea of what is involved with installing an SWS SeceuroGlide Roller door we have some images taken throughout the installation of a 2.2m x 2.1m door.  This is not intended to be an installation guide and only shows the major steps not the fine detail, refer to the excellent installation manual supplied with the product for full details. 

Skip to the bottom of the page to see the SWS External Manual Release.

1. This standard SeceuroGlide door is being fitted to a (rather shabby) garage which does not have enough clear headroom for the roll so the end plate is lower than the lintel - timber infill was used to lower the lintel on completion.  In this case fit the guide and end plate to the side with the lowest headroom first - trim the vertical guide to suit.  The guide is being fitted to the rear face of the brickwork - removing the old door frame increased the drive-through width by 10" in this case.  The guide must be drilled and fixed using No12 screws (not supplied).

2. Once the guide and end plate on this side have been fixed in position the other side can be offered up - it is useful to fit the axle at this stage, the guide can be trimmed so that the axle is absolutely level.  Take a little extra time over this... a perfectly horizontal axle is essential.

3. Both guides and end plates are now fixed securely and the axle is fitted (the motor for the door is inside the axle at this end in this example).

4. In preparation for feeding the curtain over the top of the axle stick a loop of duck tape around the axle and black roller on both sides; this helps to guide the bottom edge of the curtain into the guide making it much easier if you are on your own.

5. Having measured the height of the guides and checked against the installation instructions that the curtain has the correct number of slats (if you have to remove some you will need a pop rivet gun) the curtain is fed over the of the axle.  The curtain is then lowered onto a tool box and curved collars slipped onto the top slat from the side.  

6. With the door fully lowered the curved collars are secured by pop riveting (you will need a pop rivet gun) the white sleeves in position, the automatic locks are a adjusted (the long screws set to overlap the teeth in the end plate - very effective), manual release lever fitted and bottom motor limit set.

7. The non-motor side.  The door is raised and the upper motor limit set.

8. The control box and photo cells are fitted, wired up and tested - sorry forgot to photograph these!  The door is then ready for use.  Below is a Seceuroglide Compact... I forgot to photograph the end result of the above door - the external brickwork was a bit shabby anyway!!!!

1. SWS External Manual Release - only required if you do not have access into the garage other than through the garage door; this enables you to wind the door open in the event of a power cut.  Inside view.  The bar rises up to connect into the motor assembly.  The bar can be shortened and/or turned through 90 to go through a side wall.  A 22mm dia masonary drill bit will be required, suggest pilot drilling 10 or 12mm first. 

2. External view (making good not yet done).  Key is inserted and barrel removed allowing you to insert the winding handle and open the door from outside.  Undoing the four screws does not overcome the lock!
