Window & Door Screen Maintainence

Door Frame Maintenance

Wipe the door and screen with a mild detergent soap, rinse and wipe dry. Never use harsh chemicals to clean your door.

Hinges & Hardware Maintenance

Keep your door swinging smoothly by applying WD-40 or a 3-in-1 oil to the knuckle of the hinge occasionally after cleaning. Wipe off excess lubricant.

Adjusting Pneumatic Closer

Door closers can be easily adjusted for proper closing. Turn the screw at the end of the piston assembly clockwise to increase pressure which slows the closer, or counter clockwise to decrease the pressure which speeds up the closer.

To recalibrate the closer; with the door closed turn the screw counter clockwise until screw is nearly out. Then open the door all the way and while door is open turn the screw clockwise until it stops. Slowly back the screw out until a desired speed of closure is achieved. This process may take a few attempts; the closer can be sensitive and may require very slight turns and adjustments to reach your desired setting.

Flush Bolts

Lubricate with a small amount of silicone spray or multi-purpose lubricant if your slide bolts do not engage smoothly. Operate slide bolts monthly to ensure proper functioning.

Scuff marks, chips, or scratches on powder coated finish

Clean the powder coated surface with a mild detergent soap, rinse and wipe dry. Use a mild liquid cleanser such as Soft Scrub® by Clorox, rinse and wipe dry. If there is a chip or scratch present after surface is clean and dry apply touch-up paint.
