Cleaning & Maintenance
To ensure your newly installed Urban Metal Decorative Screen is long-lasting and looking beautiful for years to come, it is important to understand the maintenance requirements.
Stainless Steel: A speciality finish which does require a certain amount of maintenance. As to the frequency, most suppliers would agree that stainless steel should be cleaned on an “as needed” basis. Regardless of the grade of material, all stainless steel can be prone to ‘tea staining’. Stainless Steel should be kept clean and free of dirt and grime to ensure its natural and original appearance.
Weathering Steel: A high strength steel which develops a protective rusted ‘patina’ which inhibits further corrosion. Originally designed for architectural use on bridge construction and shipping containers, weathering steel has been known to achieve a 100+ year life span.
Powder Coated Aluminium or Steel: For the majority of our powder coated panels, the brand we choose to use is DULUX. They recommend that a simple, regular maintenance program should be implemented. The effects of ultra violet light, atmospheric pollution, dirt grime and airborne salt deposits can all accurate over time and should be removed at regular intervals. As a general rule, cleaning should take place every three months. For additional tips to maintaining your powder coated products, please click here.
