It is essential for all powder-coated metals to be cleaned on a regular basis to preserve the finish over the life of the product. Secureview mesh , Xceed perforated aluminium ,Diamond Grille and their framing should be cleaned at frequent intervals as indicated on the chart below .
The aim of the cleaning operation is to remove the grime and in coastal areas ,salt build up that is deposited onto the surface without causing damage to the powder-coated surface. Just as washing your car is essential for removing dirt and grime, your powder-coated security products need to be washed regularly to maintain your Security Doors and Window Screens in pristine condition.
Start by removing any dust and loose deposits using a soft head broom. Once this is completed, use a mild ,”soft” cleaner such as dishwashing liquid or car wash in warm water applied with a sponge or soft brush ( a soft banister brush is ideal ) to thoroughly clean the product. Rinse thoroughly with clean fresh water to remove any detergent/cleaner. The use of a garden hose is ideal. Acidic or alkaline cleaners are not recommended as they can damage the powder-coating.
