Maintaining your new Glass Fencing

Maintaining your new Glass Fencing

It is desirable and important that you maintain your pool fence or balustrade. There are many ways and ideas to do that.

For the best look, glass should be regularly checked and cleaned but it shouldn’t be too much of a hassle. By far the most simple and effective method is a bucket of warm water, rubbed on and washed by a sponge and then wiped off with a squeegee. Using specially formulated waxy detergents (such as those that are commonly used for cars) can assist to reduce the regularity of cleaning.

Stainless Steel, although unlikely to rust on its own can begin to stain over time in the outside environment. This is caused by constant touching and by chemicals contained within water landing on it. The recommended cleaning of these surfaces is simply some (water and a sponge) and applying lanolin oil when the stainless steel is dry. 

To extend the life of powder coatings a very simple regular maintenance program should be implemented. Generally cleaning should take place every 6 months, but in heavy pollutant areas (especially coastal or industrial areas), cleaning should be carried out more frequently.

1)  Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.

2)  Use a soft (non-abrasive) brush or cloth & a mild household detergent solution (not solvents or detergents recommending use of gloves) to remove dust, salt & other deposits.

3)  Rinse off with clean fresh water.

4)  For stubborn stains we recommend mineral turps or methylated spirits. Do Not Use Solvents such as thinners.
