Our products are designed for a long service life If you observe the following care instructions, your entrance door will retain its beauty even after many years of daily use. Using any kind of adhesive films on the finish should be avoided, as this could result in damage for various reasons.
adeco door panels are provided with hard-wearing, weatherproof coating materials of various lacquer systems. These are extremely resistant to atmospheric influences and retain their distinguished appearance for years. However, surface soiling due to dust and other airborne substances is unavoidable.
To ensure that you enjoy your entrance door panel for many years to come, we recommend regularly cleaning it with a damp, soft cloth. We recommend using a soft microfibre cloth. When soiled, hard or dry cleaning cloths are used surface scratching is unavoidable.
Cleaning, especially for Renolit-foil finishes, should take place when temperatures are cooler (below 20° Celsius). With Finea, Silvea and Satinea finishes, the temperature of both the surface to be cleaned and the cleaning agent must not exceed maximum 25°C. Refrain from vigorous rubbing when cleaning. Cleaning with a steam-jet degreaser is not permitted.
To remove heavier soiling, try adding a commercially available neutral ph or weak alkaline cleaning agent such as soft soap, Pril or similar to lukewarm water. All cleaning agents must be immediately rinsed with clear water.
Soiling due to grease, oil, soot, adhesive residue etc. can best be removed using aromatic white spirits or isopropyl alcohol (IPA). Test first on a small inconspicuous area. Do not use solvents which contain esters, ketones, high-grade alcohols, aromates, glycol ethers or halogenated hydrocarbons or the like. Do not use abrasive cleaners as these could damage the finish.
Matt stainless steel / Polished stainless steel
Due to its composition, stainless steel does not rust solely through contact with oxygen. Nevertheless, rust film can form on the surface due to environmental conditions (air containing salt and iodine), through contact with ferrous materials or other soiling. These impurities on the stainless steel parts, brought from outside, can be removed with a special stainless steel cleaner.
To protect against surface soiling, it is recommended that you regularly treat the stainless steel components with a commercially available stainless steel cleaner. Under no circumstances should abrasive cleaners or chlorinated cleaning agents be used as these could alter the finish.
Brass takes on a matt patina over the course of time due to the effects of weather, which is typical for this material. This patina is a natural protection of the metal against external influences. Over time, the material begins to brighten again in areas of use, which accentuates the value of the brass. For cleaning, simply use a damp cloth followed by a dry cloth.
Walnut – Oak – Jatoba
As a natural product, wood exhibits varying colouration and grains. Due to the effects of weather, wood is subject to an ongoing natural transformation process.
Without regular maintenance, the original wood shade quickly takes on a natural, pale-grey patina. Should the wood surface exhibit cracks, it is conceivable that the wooden slat has moved.
The colour of the wood can be revived using commercially available furniture oils made specifically for outdoor applications. Wood wax products (PNZ Wood Wax L) available in specialist shops also protect wood against greying, without sealing the pores. These products are weather-resistant, water-repellent and environmentally friendly.
For handles which are combined with oiled wood, soil particles can be removed from the wood pores using mild soapy water and a firm brush with natural bristles. Afterwards, furniture oil available from specialist shops may be applied sparingly with a soft brush. After waiting 10 minutes wipe off the excess oil that did not absorb using a lint-free cloth. This treatment should be performed once or twice per year.
Oiling the wood brings out a warm hue, which makes the wood grain more prominent. And rain water beads and rolls off better. In general, the oil treatment brings out the richness of the colour and guarantees the weather-resistance.
