Maintaining your door
GRP composite doors are low maintenance -
You’ll find a little care every six months goes a very long way.
|Part of the door||Recommended Maintenance||Notes|
|Hinges||Keep them at their best by lubricating with a little light engineering oil, e.g 3 in 1|
|Cylinder Locks||Need lubricating with a Teflon based lubricant||They're sensitive so don't use oil or graphite powder|
|Just add a touch of light engineering oil on all moving parts||Easpecially important if you live near the coast or by a building or industriak site|
