The modern steel window is an extremely durable, high performance
product. This performance can be enhanced if good maintenance
practices are observed.
Frames should be cleaned at regular intervals, using a mild,
non-alkaline detergent in warm water, applied with a soft
cloth or sponge.
Glazing and perimeter sealants should be inspected on an annual
basis and appropriate maintenance action taken. Galvanized
steel windows, which are not factory finished with a polyester
powder coating, are manufactured with clearances set to allow
for up to three or four coats of paint on the meeting surfaces.
When the repainting programme has exceeded this, strip the
paint off all meeting surfaces prior to repainting.
All hinges, pivots, handles, stays and other mechanical parts
should be checked for operation, kept free of excessive paint
build up and lightly lubricated.
