Aftercare

We hope you’re happy with the installation of your brand new solid and secure Endurance Door. To keep your door looking great & operating correctly, please follow our aftercare advice. You should be aware that not following our aftercare advice may result in invalidating your warranty.

DO NOT BLOCK DRAINAGE HOLES

Once a year (or as often as required) ensure drainage holes in the door frame are clear of any debris. Note that a build-up of water may invalidate the warranty.

CLEAN THE DOOR & FRAME WITH MILD SOAPY WATER

Never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads and DO NOT use a PVC cleaner, or any solvent / equivalent.


Weather seals should be cleaned at least once a year with a mild soap and water solution to remove any dust grime.


Ventilators (if fitted) should be also be cleaned once a year with a mild soap and water solution.


When plastering or decorating is taking place, be sure to cover the door with a dustsheet, as plaster can stain the PVC frame and hardware.

CLEAN DOOR HARDWARE REGULARLY

Keep handles, knockers and letter plates looking good by wiping with a clean cloth soaked in a mild soapy warm water once a month.

Hinge mechanisms and handles should be checked at least twice a year for ease of operation and lubricated with light oil or PTFE spray.

ALWAYS “THROW THE HANDLE” UP

Always “throw the handle” up to engage the top and bottom hooks when the door is closed. Leaving the door for long periods of time on the latch alone can be detrimental to the door.

MAINTAIN THE LOCK

Every 6 months use a PTFE spray or spray grease into the apertures of the lock on the side of the door - the hooks, latch and centre deadbolt. For the door cylinder the internal workings should be lightly sprayed with WD40/PTFE (or every 12 weeks).

HINGE & KEEPS ADJUSTMENTS

Over time the door may move or catch. To rectify this, you should make adjustments to the hinge and keep position, which you can do yourself.
