SECURITY SCREEN (SUPASCREEN)
CARE & MAINTENANCE
SupaScreen security screens are an innovative product that allows unobstructed views, with maximum strength and security. They are extremely hard wearing and corrosion resistant, but regular maintenance is required to sustain the original look of the product.
LOCKS: The locking devices incorporated in these products are complex mechanisms and regular maintenance includes the occasional lubrication of moving parts, with an aerosol based lubricant.
To lubricate door locks, hold the handles down and spray into the latch bolt cavity, then operate a few times to spread the lubricant around the moving parts.
Door handle pivots and hinge pivot pins can be lubricated where they fit into the lock body. It is not recommended to spray directly into the key slots of lock cylinders or onto the key. However, applied sparingly, dry graphite powder is a suitable lubricant for lock cylinders.
ALUMINIUM FRAME & SCREEN: The stainless steel screen should be regularly cleaned to maintain an unobstructed view and air flow. In general, anodised or powder coated aluminium frames located in urban areas, should be cleaned every three months and every six months in rural areas. In industrial and marine
environments (within1km of the sea), monthly cold water washing as well as six monthly washes, with warm water & detergent, is necessary.
NOTE: It is universally recognised some sunscreens adversely affect powder-coated finishes and this should be avoided near the product in question.
ALUMINIUM FRAME & SCREEN:
1 - Carefully remove any loose surface deposits with a wet sponge by gently rubbing.
2 - Clean by gently rubbing the surface with a soft brush (non-abrasive) and a dilute solution of a mild detergent, e.g., pH-neutral liquid hand or dishwashing detergent in warm water to remove dust, salt, and other deposits. For stubborn stains use only recommended solvents on the affected area, e.g., Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or methylated spirits and rinse off with clean water. Do not use other aggressive solvents.
3 - Anodised finishes with greasy deposits or hard to remove grime, should be cleaned with a soft cloth dipped in white spirit, turpentine or kerosene then wiped with a dry rag.
4 - Rinse the surfaces with clean fresh water after cleaning to remove all residues. A quick wipe-over with an absorbent cloth or chamois will prevent water marks from forming
DO NOT allow excessive amounts of water enter the main lock and any auxiliary locks.
DO NOT under any circumstances use scourer pads, abrasive scouring cleaners or caustic solution as these will cause permanent damage to the finish.
DO NOT use solvents or harsh detergents on any of the SupaScreen frame, screen or components as this could damage the finish and increase the likelihood of corrosion.
DO NOT let any solvents used on anodised finishes come in contact with any rubber components as they can degrade them.
DO NOT expose your anodised/powder coatings to excessive heat, heaters or hot air guns - these may damage the coating.
DO NOT allow sunscreens to come into contact with powder coated services
