Strip Head Section
How to select the right strip door HEAD SECTION
Head sections are generally selected based on your strip door’s application.
We have three different head sections or hanging systems available:
1. Removable aluminum head section, 45mm (h) x 20mm (d)
A popular choice for retail shop fronts, domestic applications and cool rooms; strip doors with this type of head section are easy to hang and easily removed at the end of each day for storage. This head section is made of anodized aluminum with the PVC door strips securely stapled to a rigid PVC insert. Mounting this strip door to your doorway is via figure-of-eight holes in the head section that precisely fit over mounting screws provided.
2. Fixed or bolted aluminum head section, 65mm (h) x 40mm (d) x 3mm (thick)
Ideal for strip doors spanning larger doorways with heavy traffic and, therefore, may require replacement of individual damaged or worn strips. This head section is made of right-angled anodized aluminum with PVC door strips securely bolted on using stainless steel nuts, bolts and washers, that allow for easy replacement of individual strips. The strip door is generally attached to the doorway using suitable fixings for the mounting surface and weight of the strip door, such as rivets or tech screws.
3. Hook-on stainless steel head section, 30mm (h) x 30mm (d)
A sturdy, easy-to-use hanging system for heavy-duty strip doors. A good option for strip doors that need frequent removal for cleaning—simply ‘hook on’ and ‘hook off’—or for regular strip replacements due to heavy motorized traffic. Furthermore, the stainless-steel construction is resistant to the harsh cleaning agents used in some industries. These PVC strips come sandwiched between two hook-on stainless steel plates that neatly and easily hang over strong hooks on the stainless-steel head section. The strip door is generally attached using suitable fixings for the mounting surface and weight of the strip door, such as rivets or tech screws.
