HARDWARE AND ENTRY DOORS

Maintain your hardware, components and entry door with proper use and regular cleaning.
Help your windows and doors keep working for longer.

 

WHAT TO USE?

Wash your hardware every month with a mild cleaner like dishwashing liquid mixed with warm water. Adjust and lubricate your hardware as directed by your supplier.

Clean hinges and window stays at the same time as your aluminium joinery, with a mild cleaner.

Door closers should be checked and maintained. If doors are slamming shut, adjust or consult your supplier.

Check for and replace all damaged components of your window and door system. This includes seals, gaskets, rubbers and rollers. Damaged components can reduce lifetime considerably.

 

 

Entry door - look after as stated above; and clean panels and other surfaces by following the same guidance as for your windows and doors.

Split hinges should be replaced. Wedging doors open can cause permanent damage.

Timber panels (and louvres):

Timber should be sealed around all 6 sides to ensure optimal performance and longevity

- talk to your local manufacturer for more information. For care and maintenance of your timber doors, please refer to your timber door supplier.

WHAT NOT TO USE?

Avoid washing with household cleaning sprays as they can be too aggressive and cause damage.

Do not oil keyholes of locks. Do not slam entry doors hard. Remove the protective film covering new entry doors.
