Simple care and adjustment for continued function & performance.
The external face of window & door frames should be washed with a mild detergent & clean water to remove deposits. If the product is exposed to salt air or industrial pollutants, it should be washed every 3 months. Keep tracks free from dirt & grit to avoid premature wear. Ensure drainage slots are kept clear to maximise drainage performance.
To clean non-coated glass, flood the surface with a spray-on solution or with a cloth saturated with the cleaning solution. Scrub the wetted area with a clean, lint-free towel or cloth. Wipe dry with a clean, lint-free towel or cloth.
View the guide here for specific instructions when cleaning glass with an exposed coating, such as single glazed Low E.
The internal surface finish should be kept clean, & refinishing of the timber should be undertaken when coatings either break down or wear away.
Keep locks, hinges & wheels / rollers clean. Regularly lubricate with silicone spray to ensure optimum performance. Note that cleaning & lubrication of hardware should be performed monthly in coastal areas.
STAINLESS STEEL FLYSCREENS
Stainless steel fly-screen mesh needs to be cleaned regularly with warm soapy water & a soft cloth, to remove a build-up of salt & dirt, which increases the potential for tea-staining (on stainless mesh). This needs to be undertaken yearly at minimum, with cleaning required monthly for buildings in close proximity to the ocean.
All products should be adjusted as required to maintain correct performance.
