All Systems
Maintenance & Care

Panel Protective Film

Remove all protective film from panels, frames and any other metal extrusion within 30 days of job delivery. Failure to do so could cause finish damage voiding the product warranty.

Frequency

Regular maintenance is required for all hardware, even stainless steel, to keep manufacturer’s warranty in place. Failure to provide proof of maintenance will void any warranty.

Carry out maintenance procedures with the following minimum recommendations:

  • General environments - every 3 months
  • Marine, industrial environments, within 5 miles of a body of water and / or a pool area - every month.

Sliding Door Systems
Maintenance & Care

Handles and Hardware

Wipe down the visible surfaces with warm soapy water on a soft cloth and then rinse off by wiping with a clean damp cloth. Spray a thin film of light machine oil or one of the corrosion preventative sprays such as CRC Marine 66®, Innox® or CorrisionX®. Be careful to avoid overspray and be sure to wipe down any overspray that does occur.

Water Management

If your sill track comes with a Euro-Wall water management configuration, ensure that all drainage points are free and clear of debris.

Sill Track and Wheels

Wipe all contaminant clear from sill track surfaces with a damp cloth and mild detergent, dry with clean soft cloth. Using a spray machine oil or one of the corrosion preventative sprays (such as, CRC Marine 66®, Innox® or CorrosionX®) spray underneath the panels and into the wheel assembly. Operate the door across the sill track to ensure the track receives lubrication / anti corrosion spray from the wheels. Repeat as necessary until the wheels and the track is properly covered. Wipe down any overspray.

Hinges

Wipe down the visible surfaces with warm soapy water on a soft cloth and then rinse off by wiping with a clean damp cloth.

Locks and Hardware

Wipe down the visible surfaces with warm soapy water on a soft cloth and then rinse off by wiping with a clean damp cloth. Spray a thin film of light machine oil or one of the corrosion preventative sprays such as CRC Marine 66®, Innox® or CorrisionX®. Be careful to avoid getting these compounds on wood or fiberglass panels or jambs as they may cause staining. Be sure to wipe down any overspray.

Track and Bearings

Apply white petroleum jelly (Vaseline) or equivalent, to inner lip of each side of head track with a clean cloth. Distribute lubricant evenly along track. Ensure wheels and bearings receive sufficient lubricant. Wipe all contaminant from track surfaces with damp cloth and mild detergent, clean surfaces with clean soft cloth. Apply thin film for systems installed in severe environments by wiping surfaces of track with anti-corrosive substance, such as, CRC Marine 66®, Innox® or CorrosionX®.

Hangers, Pivots and Brackets

Before applying anti-corrosive substance, wipe exposed surfaces with clean soft cloth soaked in warm soapy water; then rinse, clean and dry. Spray thin film to hangers, pivots and brackets with anti-corrosive substance, such as, CRC Marine 66®, Innox® or CorrosionX®.
