We’re proud of our glass and fittings, and with a little regular care and maintenance. They will keep their excellent appearance and remain in optimal condition for many years.

Washing Your Glass

  • When washing, use warm water and a mild soap detergent solution or proprietary glass cleaners to loosen dirt and debris.
  • Use a soft, grit free cloth or sponge and try to avoid washing in direct sunlight. Do NOT use scrapers or razor blades.
  • After washing, rinse with clean water and then dry the glass using a clean, grit-free squeegee, cloth, or paper towel.
  • Thoroughly dry the window gaskets, sealants, and frames to prevent water spots.
  • Avoid cleaning tinted and reflective glass surfaces in direct sunlight.
  • When washing double glazing and laminated glass, use the same procedures as above but ensure no solvents come into contact with the edge laminate interlayer or unit sealant.
  • Check frame drainage is not blocked as this may affect laminate and insulated glass units.

Maintaining Your Stainless Steel

Tea staining occurs most commonly within about five kilometers of the sea and becomes progressively worse closer to the marine source. Regular washing also removes deposits (such as salt) that can cause corrosion. In these instances it is recommended that cleaning is performed fortnightly.

Maintaining Your Powder Coating

Over time with exposure to the elements, powder coatings may show signs of weathering such as loss of gloss, chalking and slight colour change. A simple regular clean will minimise the effects of weathering and will remove dirt, grime and other build-up detrimental to all powder coatings.

Maintaining Your Chrome Plated Brass

All metals are prone to tarnishing due to oxidation. Chrome is a very high-shine metal, so any smudges, grime or rust are visible. However genuine chrome plating is also quite tough so it can be cleaned to ensure that it maintains its mirror-like finish. Chrome must NOT be polished - it must be cleaned - once scratched, you live with it or re-chrome it.
