All Vantage®, Elevate™ and ThermalHEART™ windows and doors are made to order so you have complete freedom to choose the perfect colour and
finish for your project.
Like any other painted surface, powder coated aluminium performs at its best when properly cared for. The key is keeping the surface free from pollutants and environmental contaminants.
A gentle clean with a soft brush and mild detergent, followed by a fresh water rinse will maintain the long-term performance of your powder coated products. Cleaning in shade and during cooler parts of the day is ideal. Ensure the cloths or brushes used are soft. Wipe gently to avoid
scratches and scraping.
Cleaning should be undertaken as below:
• Rural and urban environments: every 12 months
• Industrial, coastal or high pollution areas: every 3 months
• Heavy industrial, marine or beachfront areas: monthly
Do not use strong solvents, abrasive cleaning products or any product recommended for thinning paints. To remove splashed paint, sealants or mastics use white spirits. We recommend that prior to using any cleaning agent, test a small non-visible area of your powder coated product to ensure that no visual colour change or damage will occur. Ask us for the care and maintenance information specific to your product choice.
