White uPVC frames

  • Wash frames with soap and water solution (diluted washing up liquid is fine) to avoid the build-up of grime and atmospheric deposits.

  • For stubborn stains use a non-abrasive uPVC liquid cleaner. Use sparingly and buff to shine

  • Avoid solvent-based cleaners and take care not to disturb any of the sealants.

Coloured uPVC frames

  • Only use a soap and water solution to clean the wood grain foiled frames.

  • Never use cleaning flood or solvent based cleaners.

Coloured foiled uPVC frames

  • Only use a soap and water solution to clean wood grain foiled frames.

  • Never use cleaning fluid or solvent based cleaners.

Polycarbonate glazing material

  • Only use a soap and water solution to clean wood grain foiled frames.

  • Never use cleaning fluid or solvent based products.

Hardware and furniture

  • Only clean with soap and water solution.

  • Do not use abrasive cleaners.

  • All moving mechanical parts are lubricated. Hinges and locks will benefit from a small application of light oil at least once a year.

Self-cleaning glass

  • Do not use abrasive or solvent-based cleaners on the external glazing surface as the self-cleaning properties may be affected.

  • Regular cleaning should not be necessary. However, should you have a build-up of contaminants on the coated surface, hose down the glass and let it dry naturally. It should be sprayed at the coolest time of day and not within direct sunlight, from top to bottom in a zigzag pattern.

  • To remove stubborn marks, first hose down the glass to remove any dirt then clean with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth followed by a final water rinse.

  • If necessary a non-abrasive liquid glass cleaner can be utilised. Rubber squeegees should not be used.

  • In hard water areas, hosing down could result in creating white marks on the coated surface- if this problem does occur then use a solvent-free diluted detergent with a suitable applicator.
