Aluminium Windows

The strength and sharp lines of aluminium make it a perfect material for modern elegant structures and it is predominantly used in the commercial sector. Its ability to be powder coated to any available colour allows the customer to match the product to many other building features. Aluminium windows are particularly good where there are high levels of air pollutants as in salt water spray near the coast or exhaust emissions in the towns and cities.

Aftercare advice

Lubrication

To ensure your locks, hinges and handles perform easily and smoothly for years to come, it is essential that they are re-lubricated annually as the existing lubrication will soon dry out causing wear and stress to moving parts. The lubrication can be any light machine oil such as 3 in 1 Oil or WD40. The important point is that excess oil should be immediately wiped off to avoid drips staining surfaces and dirt will stick to excess oil causing other problems.

Cleaning

To keep glass clean and clear it needs washing periodically with a mild soapy solution and rinsing with clean water. Use of a wash leather will prevent streaks from water droplets running down the glass surface.

Anually the windows and glass may need a thorough clean. To do this, use the following procedure:

  • Hose or rinse off lose dirt that may scratch
  • Using a soft car brush that will not scratch the surface of glass or plastic, vigourously soap down glass and frame
  • Gently rinse off all surfaces with clean water
  • Any stubborn marks on PVC can be removed with a non-abrasive cream cleaner (e.g. CIF)
  • Marks on glass can be removed with a propiertry glass cleaner
  • Finally wipe all surfaces down with a wash leather and soft clean cloth
  • Drainage and Weatherseals

Avoid damage or dislodgement of seals as this will cause difficulty in obtaining a correct seal and create potential draughts. Damaged seals can often be replaced by contacting us.

uPVC window systems rely on an inbuilt drainage system that comprises of slots within the base rails or thresholds that allow any water ingress to flow to the outside. It is important therefore that these slots are kept clear by periodically removing any grit and dirt build-ups and flushing out with clean water.
