Instructions for the maintenance of the material provided:
Below are the rules to ensure long life of the fences:
– know the chemical/physical characteristics of the material;
– periodically perform the normal cleaning operations with non-aggressive products;
– schedule maintenance.
– The optimal cleaning consists in cleaning with any product to wash delicate surfaces;
use a neutral, non-abrasive cleaning product (e.g. use polish of the type used for car bodies).
– The frequency of cleaning is closely related to the aggressiveness of the atmosphere of the place where the fence is installed.
– Industrial fumes, coal, etc.
– Substances containing chlorine (present in particular in areas up to 1,500 m from the sea, in compounds of industrial fumes, etc.).
Therefore, two cleaning sequences are recommended:
1 – every 3-6 months in areas with little industrial pollution or far from the sea;
2 – every 1-3 months in areas with high concentration of traffic and/or industrial pollution and/or near the sea.
