Door Care & Maintenance

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR DOOR

Maintenance of your B&D garage door and opener is critical to ensuring its smooth, quiet, reliable operation, and in most cases is necessary to ensure your warranty remains valid.

DOORS

COLORBOND AND COLOURED STEEL FINISH DOORS

Your coloured steel door has been pre-painted with a silicone modified polyester formulation, which is one of the best paint films available today. To ensure your door is kept in the best condition, all exposed surfaces require some attention to guard against corrosion and other harmful atmospheric effects.

Washing the door with clean water and a clean, non abrasive cloth every 14 days is recommended. More frequent washing is advised in salty or industrial fallout areas.

Remember, when you think of cleaning your car… clean your door!

NOTE: DO NOT WASH THE AUTOMATIC OPENER, IT WILL VOID THE WARRANTY AND COULD CAUSE ELECTROCUTION.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE REQUIRED

We recommend that you check the operation of your door at least every three to six months (more regularly in extreme environments or frequent use). The effort required to manually open and to manually close the door should be about the same (if door has an automatic opener, put into manual mode before testing door).

NOTE: IF CORRECT MAINTENANCE & SERVICING ARE NOT CARRIED OUT, WARRANTY MAY BE VOID.
