Security Screen Care & Maintenance

The finishes that are applied to SecureAll Screen products are of high quality and are extremely durable and weather resistant. Like all fixtures around the home some maintenance is required to preserve the original appearance of the product.

Anodized Aluminum

Surfaces should be kept clean by prompt removal of all dust, dirt, grime and any foreign matter using clean water and a small amount of mild detergent. Do not under any circumstances use any abrasive type cleaning agent (Ajax or similar) or cleaning material (such as steel wool) as it will damage the anodized surface. Thoroughly wash off any residue of detergent with clean water.

Powder Coated Aluminum

Deposited grime absorbs moisture and holds it against the powder coated surface, damaging the coating. Surfaces should be kept clean by prompt removal of all dust, dirt, grime and any foreign matter using a soft sponge with clean water and a small amount of mild detergent. Thoroughly wash off any residue of detergent with clean water to avoid deterioration of the coating which will occur as a result of soap deposition. Do not under any circumstances use any abrasive type cleaning agent (Ajax or similar). If small scratches occur, they can be buffed out using a good quality car polish. Care must be taken to ensure the coated surface is not removed.

Frequency of Cleaning

Frequency of cleaning is largely dependent on the location of the building. In most circumstances cleaning may be carried out every 6-12 months. Products installed close to more severe conditions such as marine or industrial environments should be cleaned every 3-4 weeks.
