INSTALLING DOORS WITH FACE FIXED CLOSERS


THESE NOTES SHOULD BE READ BEFORE INSTALLING THE DOOR AND IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS SUPPLIED BY THE HINGE AND CLOSER MANUFACTURER.FRAME PREPARATION Ensure that the hinge pieces are at 90° to the frame and door leaf to give the correct tolerance of 3 mm between top of door and frame and 6 mm between bottom of door and threshold.

Frames and leaves are pre drilled to accept the closer. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for adjustment. INSTALLATION OF AXIM 1500 FACE FIXED CLOSERS

INSTALLING THE FRAME Ensure that the frame is fixed plumb and square, the door will not function properly unless the frame is correctly fitted. Carefully measure the width, height and diagonal dimensions to check the frame is square (packing where necessary). Particular attention should be paid to fixing and packing at the hinge positions to prevent any frame flexing. The threshold (where fitted) must also be adequately fixed and supported.

Axim closers are supplied in boxes with non hold open arms as standard. If the door is ordered as a hold open type, then hold open arms are supplied separately in addition to the non-hold open type. Please note the frame heads and door top rails preparation is different for hold open and non hold open and the door will be prepared to accept the closer type specified at the time of order.

HANGING THE DOORS. (Refer to Dorma LM Hinge Adjustment Drawing) Ensure that the white eccentric bushes (on the Dorma hinge) are seated correctly into the frame parts and the nose “N” is facing the door aperture. Lift the door until the eccentric pins “SW5” will locate into the top of the bushes. If the door binds or there is too large a gap, adjust as follows:Open the door approximately. 90° and undo the grub screw “SW3”. Close the door. By turning the eccentric pin 90° using an Allen key from below, the stile will move away or towards the door centre. (Depending on direction turned). Retighten grub screw. If this adjustment is still not enough and the door binds on lock stile, raise the door approximately 4 mm, push up eccentric bush and turn 90° from below using screwdriver so that the nose “N” of the eccentric bush is pointing towards the outer edge of the frame. The hinges are correctly adjusted when there is equal clearance down each jamb (and meeting stiles). If this cannot be achieved check the jambs to ensure they are not bowing. FACE FIXED CLOSERS. The closer is fixed to the door frame on outward opening doors and to the door leaf on inward opening doors.

OPEN OUT DOORS The closer body is mounted to the frame head using the M5x65mm countersunk machine screws provided with the square block towards the hinge jamb. The non hold open arm is mounted on the door leaf using the M6x25mm pan head machine screws supplied. Place the main arm on the square shaft lining index mark 4 for right hand doors and index mark 1 for left hand doors. The index line should be on the square shaft viewed from inside. Adjust the forearm to the required length and locate on the elbow. Tighten forearm locknut and secure the main arm to the square closer shaft using the screw supplied. OPEN IN DOORS Fitting is as above EXCEPT for the closer body which is mounted on the door leaf with the arm fitted to the door head. Line up index mark 4 for left hand doors and index mark 1 for right hand doors. The index line should be on the square shaft viewed from inside. HOLD OPEN CLOSERS Fit the hold open arm using the instructions above. Once the forearm has been adjusted to give the required degree of opening, tighten the holding adjustment nut. The door will need to be opened slightly past 90 degrees to allow the arm to lock and stay open at 90 degrees.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE - AXIM 7085 EXIT DEVICE


FAILURE OF THE PANIC BARS TO OPERATE PROPERLY MAY BE DUE TO THE DOORS NOT BEING GLAZED PROPERLY OR FRAMES BEING FITTED OUT OF SQUARE.

The panic bars are checked before delivery. In the unlikely event of the bars not functioning when doors are installed, please follow the fault finding list below: 1. Check the panic bar with the door in an open position. Push in the top activator until it is flush with the face of the door stile, allowing the top and bottom bolts to spring out. If this does not work refer to 2. 2. If the panic bar itself is not springing up try a gentle pull whilst pushing in the top activator - it may be stiff as it is new. If the bar does not pull up do not force it but remove the bar (two self-tapping screws are located on each end) and take off the pivoting arm on the active stile (three Allen key grub screws). There is a small pin connecting the arm to the main drive assembly. Remove the pin. At this point the spigot protruding from the main drive will be either: A: at the top B: at the bottom of the slot. IF AT A: Whilst pushing in the top activator, use a pair of pliers to pull the spigot to the top of the slot. If it springs back to the bottom check that the end of the spigot has been machined off to approximately 1.5mm from the pin hole. If not, file the top of the spigot back to stop the spigot catching on the pivoting arm. Refit. IF AT B: Remove the guides. This is done by removing/ pushing to one side the draught strip, allowing access to the external screw. Remove the external and internal screws (it is advisable to remove the top guide first). If it still fails to operate undo the two castle type screws holding the main drive assembly and remove assembly from door stile. Check the spring on the bottom of assembly rod, if it is “coil-bound” the assembly needs replacing. FOR DOGGING INSTRUCTIONS REFER TO EITHER THE LEAFLET SUPPLIED OR TO THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE ENDS OF THE PANIC BAR ACTUATORS. External access is used to either open the door from outside or to “Dog” the panic bar. Please note that it does not lock the door as the door self locks upon closing. A DOOR STOP MUST BE USED ON CENTRE HUNG DOORS WITH EXIT DEVICES.

RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE FOR DEADLOCKS, DEADLATCHES AND PADDLE HANDLES.


General Remove the lockcase from the door stile and lubricate the mechanism with light engineering grease. Normally this should be carried out on an annual basis, however, if the product is located near to the sea, in a swimming pool or any environment that is particularly corrosive, it is recommended that the lockcase should be liberally coated with Finnegans Waxoyl or similar and checked every four to five months.

Deadlatches. Ensure that the door closer is adjusted correctly for locating the door in the closed position and that the closing speed is correct. Cycle test the door twenty or so times to make sure it latches every time. Check that any door stops fitted are correctly positioned so that the latchbolt sits in its strike aperture. Check that the door gap on the lock (and hinge) side does not exceed 3mm. Any gap greater than 3mm will deactivate the deadlatching facility and allow illegal external access. Ensure that lock bar and stile fixings are securely tightened. Cycle test the door to make sure it is working satisfactorily.

Paddle Handles Ensure that the brass socket head grub screw is securely fastened. Remove the paddle from the housing and lubricate the mechanism with light engineering grease. This should be carried out on an annual basis.

A POLICY OF CONTINUOUS PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT AND WE THEREFORE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE SPECIFICATIONS WITHOUT NOTICE.

RECOMMENDED OPERATION/MAINTENANCE FOR AXIM PANIC BARS The Axim 7085 concealed vertical rod panic bar is an exit device operating concealed locking rods. It is important to realise that the internal bar is designed to be pushed in an emergency to release the door


and although the bar is used to pull the door closed and reset the hardwarem the panic bar is not designed for use as a door pull or intended for use in high traffic areas where the handles are used to pull the doors closed at regular intervals. If installed correctly the hardware requires little maintenance however the following instructions will extend the life of the product if carried out on regular basis. Six monthly maintenance. Check that the hardware operates and the door can be opened in the correct manner. Ensure that the door operates smoothly and carry out the routine maintenance as detailed on the instruction supplied by the door closer manufacturers. With the door open, depress the bar and release. The bolts should remain retracted whilst the door is in this open position. The top bolt should clear the underside of the transom by no less than 3mm. In most cases this will be level with the top of the door. With the door still open, activate the trip mechanism, positioned at the top of the door on the closing face – the bolts should throw immediately. It is important that the catch operates correctly, especially in the case of fire doors and alarmed doors which will otherwise remain ajar or unlocked. If adjustment is necessary remove the screws securing the nylon guide block in place. Take care not to allow it to drop down inside the stile. Remove the nylon block and lubricate the steel catch until the spring and catch operate freely. If the bolt position requires height adjustment, turn the bolt head until the correct projection is achieved. Ensure that the bolt retracts completely when depressing the panic bar. Refit the guide block by reverse procedure. Adjustment to the bottom can be carried out in same way. Check the housing to both door stiles. The housings can be removed by slackening the 3No. 15/32” x ¼” set screws with a 3mm Allen key. The active housing can be removed from the door by sliding out the connecting pin from the actuator pin. This will present the 2No. shoulder bolts which should be secured firmly. If an outside rim cylinder has also been fitted, 2No. screws should also be visible. Check these screws are secure taking care not to over tighten. The operating mechanism can be lubricated with spray grease through the actuator pin slot and the housing reinstated by reverse procedure.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE


1. Care should be taken when transporting the frames and during fitting to ensure that the paint finishes are not damaged.

sponge. Attention should be paid to joints, drainage slots etc where dirt and deposits can accumulate.

2. Special attention should be paid to “snapfit” type sections such as beads and cover caps and the use of sharp-ended screwdrivers or other tools used assist these sections into position.

Rinse thoroughly with clean water.

3. Where possible, the protective tape should be left on the sections until the final completion/handover. 4. Mastic spillages, grease marks and dirt marks can be removed with white spirit or other approved solvent. 5. When installation of doors and frames is complete it is recommended that operating fittings such as locks, closers, pivots etc are lightly lubricated. Products such as Vaseline, silicone lubricant or acid free oil are acceptable. It is recommended that this is carried out at least annually to ensure trouble free operation. 6. Where doors are installed in coastal areas or areas with salt water, chemical sources and large cities, it is recommended that the aluminium profiles are cleaned every three months. In cleaner environments, cleaning every 6 months is sufficient. 7. Attention should also be paid to the inside of the frames, which are frequently neglected. These can also be affected by grime and deposits from tobacco smoke, heating etc and it is recommended that these should be cleaned at least once a year.

Dry all profiles using a soft cloth. 9. In cases of excessive staining or reduction in gloss levels then an approved renovating cream may be carefully applied with a soft non-abrasive cloth. T-Cut or similar paint treatments may be used providing they are not too abrasive. 10. Attention should be paid to corners of sections and areas where the paint film is normally thinner and these areas should not be cleaned too frequently. Polish with a soft cloth to restore gloss and uniformity of colour. 11. If extra protection is required, a wax polish may also be applied once or twice a year using a soft cloth. No powder coating is “maintenance free” and the cleaning of aluminium will depend upon site conditions, location, air quality etc. When installing in coastal areas advice should be sought regarding the frequency and nature of cleaning maintenance required. All paints will “chalk” to some extent during their lifetime and a reduction in gloss levels will occur. If renovation/repair of powder coated aluminium is necessary after installation, there are specialist companies capable of undertaking the repair of aluminium on site.

8. Profiles should be washed down with clean, warm water using a mild detergent or soap and non-abrasive cloth, soft brush or

INSTALLING DOORS WITH FACE FIXED CLOSERS


THESE NOTES SHOULD BE READ BEFORE INSTALLING THE DOOR AND IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS SUPPLIED BY THE HINGE AND CLOSER MANUFACTURER.FRAME PREPARATION Ensure that the hinge pieces are at 90° to the frame and door leaf to give the correct tolerance of 3 mm between top of door and frame and 6 mm between bottom of door and threshold.

Frames and leaves are pre drilled to accept the closer. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for adjustment. INSTALLATION OF AXIM 1500 FACE FIXED CLOSERS

INSTALLING THE FRAME Ensure that the frame is fixed plumb and square, the door will not function properly unless the frame is correctly fitted. Carefully measure the width, height and diagonal dimensions to check the frame is square (packing where necessary). Particular attention should be paid to fixing and packing at the hinge positions to prevent any frame flexing. The threshold (where fitted) must also be adequately fixed and supported.

Axim closers are supplied in boxes with non hold open arms as standard. If the door is ordered as a hold open type, then hold open arms are supplied separately in addition to the non-hold open type. Please note the frame heads and door top rails preparation is different for hold open and non hold open and the door will be prepared to accept the closer type specified at the time of order.

HANGING THE DOORS. (Refer to Dorma LM Hinge Adjustment Drawing) Ensure that the white eccentric bushes (on the Dorma hinge) are seated correctly into the frame parts and the nose “N” is facing the door aperture. Lift the door until the eccentric pins “SW5” will locate into the top of the bushes. If the door binds or there is too large a gap, adjust as follows:Open the door approximately. 90° and undo the grub screw “SW3”. Close the door. By turning the eccentric pin 90° using an Allen key from below, the stile will move away or towards the door centre. (Depending on direction turned). Retighten grub screw. If this adjustment is still not enough and the door binds on lock stile, raise the door approximately 4 mm, push up eccentric bush and turn 90° from below using screwdriver so that the nose “N” of the eccentric bush is pointing towards the outer edge of the frame. The hinges are correctly adjusted when there is equal clearance down each jamb (and meeting stiles). If this cannot be achieved check the jambs to ensure they are not bowing. FACE FIXED CLOSERS. The closer is fixed to the door frame on outward opening doors and to the door leaf on inward opening doors.

OPEN OUT DOORS The closer body is mounted to the frame head using the M5x65mm countersunk machine screws provided with the square block towards the hinge jamb. The non hold open arm is mounted on the door leaf using the M6x25mm pan head machine screws supplied. Place the main arm on the square shaft lining index mark 4 for right hand doors and index mark 1 for left hand doors. The index line should be on the square shaft viewed from inside. Adjust the forearm to the required length and locate on the elbow. Tighten forearm locknut and secure the main arm to the square closer shaft using the screw supplied. OPEN IN DOORS Fitting is as above EXCEPT for the closer body which is mounted on the door leaf with the arm fitted to the door head. Line up index mark 4 for left hand doors and index mark 1 for right hand doors. The index line should be on the square shaft viewed from inside. HOLD OPEN CLOSERS Fit the hold open arm using the instructions above. Once the forearm has been adjusted to give the required degree of opening, tighten the holding adjustment nut. The door will need to be opened slightly past 90 degrees to allow the arm to lock and stay open at 90 degrees.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE - AXIM 7085 EXIT DEVICE


FAILURE OF THE PANIC BARS TO OPERATE PROPERLY MAY BE DUE TO THE DOORS NOT BEING GLAZED PROPERLY OR FRAMES BEING FITTED OUT OF SQUARE.

The panic bars are checked before delivery. In the unlikely event of the bars not functioning when doors are installed, please follow the fault finding list below: 1. Check the panic bar with the door in an open position. Push in the top activator until it is flush with the face of the door stile, allowing the top and bottom bolts to spring out.

This is done by removing/ pushing to one side the draught strip, allowing access to the external screw. Remove the external and internal screws (it is advisable to remove the top guide first). If it still fails to operate undo the two castle type screws holding the main drive assembly and remove assembly from door stile. Check the spring on the bottom of assembly rod, if it is “coil-bound” the assembly needs replacing. FOR DOGGING INSTRUCTIONS REFER TO EITHER THE LEAFLET SUPPLIED OR TO THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE ENDS OF THE PANIC BAR ACTUATORS. External access is used to either open the door from outside or to “Dog” the panic bar. Please note that it does not lock the door as the door self locks upon closing. A DOOR STOP MUST BE USED ON CENTRE HUNG DOORS WITH EXIT DEVICES.

RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE FOR DEADLOCKS, DEADLATCHES AND PADDLE HANDLES.


General Remove the lockcase from the door stile and lubricate the mechanism with light engineering grease. Normally this should be carried out on an annual basis, however, if the product is located near to the sea, in a swimming pool or any environment that is particularly corrosive, it is recommended that the lockcase should be liberally coated with Finnegans Waxoyl or similar and checked every four to five months.

Deadlatches. Ensure that the door closer is adjusted correctly for locating the door in the closed position and that the closing speed is correct. Cycle test the door twenty or so times to make sure it latches every time. Check that any door stops fitted are correctly positioned so that the latchbolt sits in its strike aperture. Check that the door gap on the lock (and hinge) side does not exceed 3mm. Any gap greater than 3mm will deactivate the deadlatching facility and allow illegal external access. Ensure that lock bar and stile fixings are securely tightened. Cycle test the door to make sure it is working satisfactorily.

Paddle Handles Ensure that the brass socket head grub screw is securely fastened. Remove the paddle from the housing and lubricate the mechanism with light engineering grease. This should be carried out on an annual basis.

RECOMMENDED OPERATION/MAINTENANCE FOR AXIM PANIC BARS The Axim 7085 concealed vertical rod panic bar is an exit device operating concealed locking rods. It is important to realise that the internal bar is designed to be pushed in an emergency to release the door


and although the bar is used to pull the door closed and reset the hardwarem the panic bar is not designed for use as a door pull or intended for use in high traffic areas where the handles are used to pull the doors closed at regular intervals. If installed correctly the hardware requires little maintenance however the following instructions will extend the life of the product if carried out on regular basis. Six monthly maintenance. Check that the hardware operates and the door can be opened in the correct manner. Ensure that the door operates smoothly and carry out the routine maintenance as detailed on the instruction supplied by the door closer manufacturers. With the door open, depress the bar and release. The bolts should remain retracted whilst the door is in this open position. The top bolt should clear the underside of the transom by no less than 3mm. In most cases this will be level with the top of the door. With the door still open, activate the trip mechanism, positioned at the top of the door on the closing face – the bolts should throw immediately. It is important that the catch operates correctly, especially in the case of fire doors and alarmed doors which will otherwise remain ajar or unlocked. If adjustment is necessary remove the screws securing the nylon guide block in place. Take care not to allow it to drop down inside the stile. Remove the nylon block and lubricate the steel catch until the spring and catch operate freely. If the bolt position requires height adjustment, turn the bolt head until the correct projection is achieved. Ensure that the bolt retracts completely when depressing the panic bar. Refit the guide block by reverse procedure. Adjustment to the bottom can be carried out in same way. Check the housing to both door stiles. The housings can be removed by slackening the 3No. 15/32” x ¼” set screws with a 3mm Allen key. The active housing can be removed from the door by sliding out the connecting pin from the actuator pin. This will present the 2No. shoulder bolts which should be secured firmly. If an outside rim cylinder has also been fitted, 2No. screws should also be visible. Check these screws are secure taking care not to over tighten. The operating mechanism can be lubricated with spray grease through the actuator pin slot and the housing reinstated by reverse procedure.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE


1. Care should be taken when transporting the frames and during fitting to ensure that the paint finishes are not damaged.

sponge. Attention should be paid to joints, drainage slots etc where dirt and deposits can accumulate.

2. Special attention should be paid to “snapfit” type sections such as beads and cover caps and the use of sharp-ended screwdrivers or other tools used assist these sections into position.

Rinse thoroughly with clean water.

3. Where possible, the protective tape should be left on the sections until the final completion/handover. 4. Mastic spillages, grease marks and dirt marks can be removed with white spirit or other approved solvent. 5. When installation of doors and frames is complete it is recommended that operating fittings such as locks, closers, pivots etc are lightly lubricated. Products such as Vaseline, silicone lubricant or acid free oil are acceptable. It is recommended that this is carried out at least annually to ensure trouble free operation. 6. Where doors are installed in coastal areas or areas with salt water, chemical sources and large cities, it is recommended that the aluminium profiles are cleaned every three months. In cleaner environments, cleaning every 6 months is sufficient. 7. Attention should also be paid to the inside of the frames, which are frequently neglected. These can also be affected by grime and deposits from tobacco smoke, heating etc and it is recommended that these should be cleaned at least once a year.

Dry all profiles using a soft cloth. 9. In cases of excessive staining or reduction in gloss levels then an approved renovating cream may be carefully applied with a soft non-abrasive cloth. T-Cut or similar paint treatments may be used providing they are not too abrasive. 10. Attention should be paid to corners of sections and areas where the paint film is normally thinner and these areas should not be cleaned too frequently. Polish with a soft cloth to restore gloss and uniformity of colour. 11. If extra protection is required, a wax polish may also be applied once or twice a year using a soft cloth. No powder coating is “maintenance free” and the cleaning of aluminium will depend upon site conditions, location, air quality etc. When installing in coastal areas advice should be sought regarding the frequency and nature of cleaning maintenance required. All paints will “chalk” to some extent during their lifetime and a reduction in gloss levels will occur. If renovation/repair of powder coated aluminium is necessary after installation, there are specialist companies capable of undertaking the repair of aluminium on site.

8. Profiles should be washed down with clean, warm water using a mild detergent or soap and non-abrasive cloth, soft brush or

Maintenance Information Technical Data Sheet

Sapa Building System


Cleaning Information It is said that the last person to touch a window or door has the greatest influence over its performance. Whilst this may be true in the short term, a product’s lifecycle can be prolonged by regular and correct maintenance. This may take the form of lubrication, cleaning or adjusting by trained personnel and may vary according to the location, use and environment of the finished building. Here we highlight the key elements of our products that require care and attention. We have consulted with the major manufacturers of hinges, handles and hardware to create this comprehensive (but not exclusive) guide. For further information or clarification, please contact either us or the manufacturers directly using the links listed on the back page of this brochure. All Sapa products are finished to the highest specifications and in accordance with the relevant British Standards for Painted and Anodised surfaces.

Installation/Post Installation Mortar, plaster etc. must be immediately removed from all painted or anodised surfaces by washing down with warm water containing a mild detergent, taking care not to scratch the surface. Stubborn marks may be carefully tackled with a renovating cream and non-abrasive cloth. It is recommended to test on a hidden or inconspicuous area first to ensure satisfaction with result. On no account are Alcohols, Esters or Ketones or other Organic solvents to be used, nor are polishes containing hard abrasives. Modern powder coatings applied to architectural aluminium are similar to the types used on motor vehicles and therefore require the same degree of care and attention that people typically lavish on their car bodywork. The frequency of cleaning relates directly to the decorative standard that the householder wishes to maintain and also the particular environment where the units are situated. Hinges and locking mechanisms should be inspected to ensure they are free from any debris that might affect their performance. Moving parts should be lubricated with the appropriate product as given on the next page.

Ongoing Care All products should be washed down with warm water containing a mild detergent at least once a year. In areas where airborne contaminants are more concentrated than usual - near the sea, around swimming pools, or in place where in industrial air pollution is a known hazard - the products should be cleaned every three months or more frequently if requested by the powder coat manufacturer for that specific location. Painted surfaces that become marked should be treated as above. Scratches or chips may be touched in by brush using a colour matched paint - Sapa can supply small bottles of paint to match the stock colours it uses ie RAL9910 Hipca White, BS08B29 Van Dyke Brown and RAL9005 Black. Cleaning and maintenance must be carried out in accordance with the powder coat manufacturers’ specification Anodised surfaces that have become heavily contaminated may be restored by gently rubbing them with a ‘Scotchbrite’ pad then drying off with a soft cloth. Application of a lanolin based cream after cleaning will give added protection. Foiled surfaces may be touched up using the correct pens available from Sapa Building Systems Limited.


Routine Maintenance & Trouble Shooting

Routine Maintenance The hardware fitted to Sapa products does not need ‘calendar’ servicing but should be maintained on an ‘as necessary’ basis. Thus items such as door locks, friction hinges, and reversible window gear which have been lubricated in manufacture and/or installation should be treated with the appropriate lubricant when they show signs of stiffening up in use or they have been left unused for a considerable time. A list of appropriate lubricants is given below: Hinge pivots, Handles, Locks

Light Machine Oil

Hinge channels

Vaseline

Cylinder Locks

Graphite or PTFE based Lubricant

Vertical Sliding Window Balances (VSW)

Torso - Castrol RustiloDWF Others - Multipurpose grease

When cleaning the products it is a wise precaution to check that all hardware fixing screws are tight, connections between VSW balances and sashes remain correct, safety stops/catches/latches are in place, and that all parts are free from damage. At the same time, and at least annually, make sure that drainage paths are not blocked by airborne debris or other ‘foreign’ bodies.

Trouble Shooting Intermittent operation or sudden unexplained impairment of the functioning of any item of hardware should be investigated immediately by a person familiar with the product and repairs effected before user safety or product function is jeopardised. Replacement of faulty or damaged parts should be carried out by an experienced person using the correct parts. Where an item is still covered by the warranty given by the fabricator or installer of the product requests for remedial work under such guarantees must, in the first instance, be referred to that person or company.


Handles

HOPPE brand fittings are made of the best quality base materials. The surface is protected from corrosion either by transparent lacquer, anodising and electro-plating such as chrome-plating or by a special vacuumcoating process. Surfaces protected by chrome-plating or vacuum-coating have a high scratch resistance. 

HOPPE material finishes require no special care. Dirt can be removed with a damp cloth; use of caustic and abraisve clensers should be avoided



Selected items from the HOPPE hardware range carry a 10 year surface guarantee. They are therefore suitable for coastal areas and highly frequented areas such as public buildings, shops and hotels. Please contact HOPPE direct for futher details



All products with the Resista surface guarantee have undergone continual quality testing and, when new, conform to the requirements of the corrosion standard BS EN 1670

Care: Dirt can be easily removed with a damp cloth. The use of caustic clensers or chemicals should be avoided. 

Handles should not be over tightened as this may impair the operation of the espagnolette, shoot bolt, lock or tilt ‘n’ turn mechanism



Casement fasteners and stays should not be over tightened as this may split the timber frame



All handles should be lightly lubricated twice per year and cleaned with a soft damp cloth to remove any dust or gime, taking care not to scratch the surface



Lightly lubricate (twice a year) with a light machine oil between the handle and the backplate



Only clean the handle with a soft damp cloth


Hinges



Ensure the selection of the correct size of hinge to be installed to support the frame size and weight as detailed in the relevant brochure



Using an appropriate fixing jig will ensure a positive location for the hinge



Fixings should be corrosion resistant screws taking care not to over tighten



All pivot points should be lightly lubricated twice per year, fixings checked and the sliding channel wiped with a clean cloth

Environmental Constraints Normal operating conditions for all hinges are: 

Operating temperature range -20oC to +60oC



Operating humidity range 10% Relative Humidity to 95% Relative Humidity

The materials used will not degrade due to ultra violet light, or when using neutral acidity non solvent cleaning chemicals, at a rate faster than other parts of the window assembly. However, the practice of cleaning brickwork with acidic based products will have serious effects if allowed to come into contact with hardware. Corrosion or failure of hardware as a result of this practice will not be covered by the warranty issued on such products. For further advise on procedures for protecting the window during this operation, please contact the window manufacturer or hardware supplier.


Hinges

Maintenance and Lubrication As with most mechanical devices, hinges require periodic maintenance and lubrication. The hinge in general and particularly the pivots, sliding shoe and track must be kept free from dirt, debris and any obstructions at all times. At Time of Installation - Lubricate all pivot points with light machine oil and wipe away excess, one drop per pivot is sufficient. We suggest one of the following lubricants or equivalent: 

General light engineering oil with corrosion inhibitors such as Castrol Everyman or 3 in 1 oil (available in aerosol can for convenience). Note: Solvent based aerosol sprays e.g. WD40 are not suitable for this application

Every Five Years - Carry out the following checks every five years: 

Clean any dirt or debris from the hinge and clear any obstructions from the pivots, sliding shoe and track



Apply lubrication detailed above



Check the tightness and security of all fixing screws and rivets

Corrosion Resistance When subjected to the relevant neutral salt spray test to BS7479:1991/ISO9227:1990 the hinge remains functional, there is no significant surface pitting caused by corrosion. Some surface discolouration is to be expected. If a hinge is fitted in an area where it is exposed to a corrosive atmosphere, e.g. salt laden sea air in coastal locations, we recommended that in addition to the general maintenance and lubrication: 

All metal surfaces are lightly coated with lubrication oil or sprayed with a proprietary anticorrosion spray. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for any products used



Maintenance operations may need to be carried out more frequently. This is dependent on the severity of the prevailing conditions



If conditions are severe (e.g. salt laden sea spray) it would be advisable to specify Auestentic (304) stainless steel


Hinges

Maintenance of Fittings All building parts and components must be given periodic maintenance. This also applies to the fittings. All moving parts of must be kept lubricated, use either white neutral grease (vaseline) or neutral oil e.g. sewing machine oil or Gleitmo 300. Gliders and aluminium slide rails must be kept free of dirt. The relevant fitting instructions should be followed with respect to lubrication and maintenance. Hardware should be maintained regularly and the frequency will depend on the environment and weather conditions. It is recommended to lubricate as a minimum once a year. Attention must also be paid to other factors leading to corrosion, for example the effects of caustic fluids, air pollution, etc. Fittings used in large towns, industrial atmosphere, or salty air require special attention due to the greater corrosive effects. The frequency of lubrication and maintenance should be more regular than fittings used where the corrosive effect is less. Note that gliders and slide rails as well as rivets have to be lubricated. However it is not recommended to lubricate friction parts since this will reduce the friction. Note that damage to the surface treatment may occur when using tools on mounted fittings. Brass products will also be affected by corrosion. To maintain the original colour, parts have to be polished regularly. Stainless steel can also be affected and spots that look like rust can be removed by using a stain remover and polish. Lacquered fittings are maintained by paint according to the instructions of the paint and colour manufacturer. Anodized aluminium is cleaned at least once a year. It is recommended to polish the surface with a cloth or sponge. Only neutral solvents and non-scratching material can be used.

Restrictors Where restrictors are supplied either as an integral part of the hardware or as a separate component as specified, it is essential that the restrictor functions correctly. After installations the windows must be checked for function and all restrictors and reverse catches should limit the opening or closing of the window. Initial restrictors must hold the window at approx 100mm max and automatically engage and reengage when operated (Side Swing - Top Swing). Areas with High Corrosive Effect Please be aware of special areas i.e. coastal or industrial areas, etc. The contents of salt, acid etc. in the air can be so high that metal parts require frequent maintenance and lubrication


Other Hardware

As with any architectural product, the frequency of operation and the environment of the application will influence the frequency of maintenance. A corrosive environment such as swimming pool, close proximity to the sea as well as high usage will mean that the hardware will require the maintenance interval to be increased from annually to biannually. In all situations it is important to consider the application as a whole rather than just the emergency escape devise. Therefore the door and all of its hardware should be inspected, as part of the maintenance procedure to ensure that they are performing satisfactorily.

Monthly 

Operate the emergency escape device to ensure satisfactory operation i.e a clean release of the locking points as the bar is operated, unimpeded opening of the door and the successful engagement of both locking points as the door closes. This should occur on each operation.



Ensure that the strike plate is free from obstruction

Annually (biannually for high traffic and corrosive conditions) 

Carry out normal monthly checks



Remove the cosmetic end cap from the locking stile end of the bar and check that the screw retaining the crank onto the vertical rod mechanism is securely fastened.



Check all other fixing (including the header strike) are securely fastened



Lubricate with high grade, lithium based grease the top of the square bolt where it bears against the stop plate on the actuator of the top bolt actuator assembly.



Lubricate all other moving parts with grease that is silicone-based.


Other Hardware

Caldwell Balance Warranty Maintenance Schedule Spirex, Spiralift, Alumatilt Heavy Duty and Regular Ultralift and Torso Balances The sash balance units are lubricated during the production process and are designed to be self lubricating during the operation of the window sashes. Therefore, the balances only require a minimum of maintenance but the following is recommended: The windows must be cleaned at regular intervals. The cleaning process should include the frames and any drainage channels that are provided (please refer to window manufacturers instructions). The balances should be checked during this cleaning process and the following items observed: 

Check the balance fixing screw is secure but still allows the balance to swivel freely about the fixing screw



Check that the bottom fixing bracket is secured to the sash and not damaged or distorted in any way



Check that the cross pin in the spiral is correctly seated in the fixing bracket, (Sprirex/Spiralift balances only)



Check that the top roll pin in the spiral is engaged in the pivot shoe, the bottom roll pin is for adjustment only, (Heavy duty and Alumatilt regular balances only)



Is the balance tube damaged in any way?



If dirt and debris has built up at the bottom end of the balance, it can be cleaned with a cloth and re-greased with the following: Torso balances: use Castrol spray Spheerol AP2 Spirex/Spiralift and Ultralift balances: multi-purpose grease can be used and we suggest that the brackets are coated at the same time Alumatilt regular, heavy duty and Ultralift balances: multi-purpose grease can be used and care should be taken not to contaminate the pivot shoe or the slide channel



Check that the travel stops are in place, and that the sash moves to contact the travel stop without any undue force. This will ensure the balances are not being either over extended or crushed. Finally check for smooth running of the sashes and adjust balances if required, (please note Torso balances are non adjustable)


Other Hardware

For door closer systems with hydraulic damping (overhead door closers and floor springs) Regular inspection and maintenance of the door closer by suitable specialist firms is one of the main prerequisites in satisfying the correct usage/correct practice requirement. The closer manufacturer considers the following to be necessary in this respect: 

Regular inspection of safety relevant components of the door closer to determine correct location/fit and the extent of any wear which may of taken place



Checking of the settings governing closing speed etc



Checking for ease of door operation



Checking of fixing screws to ensure they are tight and secure



Compliance with the prescribed statutory/legal inspection, monitoring and maintenance activities, in the case of door closers with special functions (hold open devices, mechanisms and systems)

The scope and frequency of maintenance measures such as these will depend on the type and use of the swing doors concerned. Under conditions of average usage, the manufacturer considers door closer maintenance to be necessary at least once a year. 

All moving parts should be lightly lubricated using a light non-acidic mineral oil twice per year and the surface cleaned witha soft damp cloth



The product may need to be adjusted and fixings tightened to ensure satisfactory operation


Other Hardware

Locking Mechanisms & Multi-Point Door Locks 

End guides and screw bushes should not be over tightened to impede the smooth operation of the bars



Final adjustment should be made upon installation to ensure positive engagement of bars or rods into keeps



The use of the correct sealing gasket will enhance the weather sealing and operation of the lock



All parts should be lightly lubricated twice per year and surfaces wiped with a clean cloth

Care & Maintenance Instructions To ensure that your window espagnolette functions correctly, it is important that the following maintenance procedure is carried out at least once a year: 

All fittings must be regularly inspected to ensure that they are firmly fixed. Where necessary fixing screws should be tightened by a suitably qualified person



All handles and locking mechanisms must be lubricated



Ammonia based and abrasive cleaning fluids should not be used on any hardware, only use cleaners that have no effect on the corrosion protection properties of the fittings

A few tips to keep your Yale lock working smoothly: 

Use 3 in 1 oil periodically on all rivet and compression roller points



Keep faceplate & keep surfaces clean from dust by wiping with a damp cloth


Finishes

Cleaning & Maintenance Powder Coatings are organic coatings that need to be cleaned and maintained regularly to ensure that the decorative and protective properties of the coating are retained. The frequency of cleaning depends upon the environment in which the coating is in service. Cleaning of the coating is an important part of the routine maintenance of any building. It is for this reason that we advise that only companies who specialise in this type of work are used for large cleaning operations. The best method of cleaning is by regular washing of the coating 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). If the atmospheric pollution has resulted in heavy soiling of the coating, then nothing harsher than white spirit should be used for cleaning. Do not under any circumstances use strong solvents or solutions containing chlorinated hydrocarbons, esters, ketones, abrasive cleaner or polish. The frequency of cleaning depends in part on the standard of appearance that is required and also the requirements to remove deposits that could, during prolonged contact with either the powder film or the metal substrate, (if exposed) cause damage. In hazardous environments the normal frequency of cleaning should be at a maximum of three monthly intervals. However where there is high atmospheric pollution or an extremely hazardous atmosphere (i.e., a combination of factors above or others) the period between cleaning should be reduced. Where the atmosphere is deemed to be non hazardous, e.g., rural or a "normal" urban environments, then the period between cleaning can be extended up to a maximum of 18 months. However, if heavy soiling occurs more regular cleaning is required. This Technical Data Sheet is for guidance only.
