How to care for your aluminium door


  • Do not attempt to completely open the door unless you have read the operating manual and followed the instructions therein.
  • Expansion gaps must be lift in floor screeds and timber floor finishes so the door threshold is not affected.
  • Protect finished surfaces from cement and any other forms of chemical which can discolour the finished surface.



  • Doors should always be opened and closed in accordance with operating instructions. If you have misplaced the operating instructions, please contact us and we’ll be happy to replace.
  • The best method of cleaning is by regular washing of the door using a solution of warm water and mild detergent.  All surfaces should be cleaned using a soft cloth or sponge, using nothing harsher than natural bristle brushes.  Cleaning of window sections etc. can be conveniently carried out at the same time as glazing cleaning).
  • Stubborn marks on the powder coating may be removed with methylated spirits. Refer to the table for recommended cleaning intervals.
