APL HARDWARE


APL HARDWARE Hardware is often one of the defining features of windows and doors. The form and function of handles and latches provide a tactile experience that can considerably enhance the appearance and usability of your windows and doors. Unity of design and consistency of performance shape the look and feel of the Miro, Icon and Urbo ranges of window and door hardware. Achieving a family likeness within each range was a priority; achieving excellent functionality was a requirement.

MIRO CARE & MAINTENANCE

18

APL HARDWARE


Miro hardware is generally powder coated and should be cleaned on a regular basis. Atmospheric deposits, especially in coastal areas, can cause damage to the coating, and the surface should be cleaned at least three monthly. In severe marine environments this should ideally be done monthly, especially for exterior-mounted hardware such as door handles. Cleaning should be undertaken with a dilute solution of a mild detergent and warm water. A soft brush or rag should be used and there should be no use of abrasive aids. After cleaning, the coating should be wiped down with fresh water. Miro hardware items with matt silver or gold plating are more vulnerable to marine exposure and should not be used in coastal environments Plated (soft) finishes are excluded from this warranty as deterioration is possible under some environmental conditions. .

ICON CARE & MAINTENANCE

54

APL HARDWARE


Stainless steels are very resistant to rust, however this does not mean they’re impervious to it. With proper maintenance stainless steel will maintain its lustre and appearance indefinitely. One of the advantages of stainless steel hardware is that any rust spots can be easily removed and generally the product will return to its ‘new’ state with appropriate cleaning. • Most discolouration can be removed with a mildly abrasive cleaner (Ajax, Jif, Brasso etc.) • Heavier corrosion and rust can be removed using a Scotch- Brite™ pad or stainless steel scourer • Do not use steel wool - this may leave residues of steel which will rust • After cleaning, the product should be rinsed free of all cleaning product residue with clean water Stainless steel may develop discolouration, rust spots and corrosion brought about by environmental and installation conditions. Environments with exposure to the following substances should be avoided: • Chlorine based (bleach) products and cleaners • Hydrochloric acid (commonly used for tile and concrete cleaning) • Cement dust • Soap concentrates • Water with high iron content (generally bore water) NOTE: Stainless steel is a living metal, so light surface rust is more likely to occur in the first few weeks after installation as the metal stabilises with the environment. Do not be alarmed, this is quite normal but does require cleaning immediately to prevent permanent damage.
