Care of ironmongery with Chrome, Stainless Steel, Nickel and Brass finishes

The only maintenance required is regular cleaning with a moist chamois leather or a soft dusting cloth. For more stubborn dirt and stains use warm water with a mild detergent if necessary then rinse off and wipe dry with a towel. Do not use an abrasive compound or a metal polish.

Care of external ironmongery

External ironmongery will need more regular care than internally fitted hardware, particularly when located in coastal areas where the air contains salt and seawater particles. Lacquered products which are fitted externally will inevitably suffer from lacquer breakdown due to exposure to the elements, this is where Stainless Steel products are particularly advantageous.

Care of operational ironmongery

All ironmongery with moving parts, such as locks and latches, should be checked monthly and lubricated as required.
