To maintain your rights under your Crimsafe warranty, ensure you clean your Crimsafe products properly and regularly, as outlined below.
Why you should clean your Crimsafe products
Crimsafe’s Tensile Tuff® mesh is made from 0.9mm 304 grade stainless steel mesh and is surrounded by architectural gradealuminium framing. The mesh on Crimsafe doors and windows is also highly corrosion and rust resistant. In addition, it is coated with a special high-quality powder coatingto repel dust and airborne impurities, prevent fading and provide further protection.
Since all mesh can trap airborne dirt and impurities over time, it is important to wash your Crimsafe security products regularly. Moisture, salt and dirt trapped in the mesh may oxidise, and can result in reddish marks on the mesh, or a build-up of fluffy white residue if there is excessive salt in the air. To avoid staining, these impurities need to be removed regularly.
Get the most out of your investment by caring for your Crimsafe products!
Regular maintenance of your Crimsafe products involves washing down the frames and mesh with a wash and wax product, preferably Crimsafe Wash and Wax, mixed in a bucket of warm water and using a soft bristle brush or a handy cleaning glove to dislodge dirt and grime. Follow with a clean water rinse.
Davcon offers a free bottle of CrimsafeWash and Wax with every installation! Davcon also sells Ha-Ra gloves, which are super handy, easy-to-use gloves covered in microfiber cloth to remove stubborn dirt while protecting your hands.
