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.
ALUMINIUM FRAME & SCREEN:
To keep the security screen finish looking like new
1 - Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.
2 - Wash down using a soft bristled brush (non abrasive) and a mild household detergent solution to
remove dust, salt, dirt and other deposits.
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 off with lots of clean fresh water.
5 - A quick wipe over with an absorbent cloth 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.
