How to care for and maintain your screens from Goldco®

The finishes that are applied to your screens are of high quality and are extremely durable and weather resistant. Like all fixtures around the home and workplace, maintenance is required to preserve the original appearance of the product.

 Aluminium Frame and Screen

The mesh in your screens must be regularly cleaned to maintain an unobstructed view and airflow. Anodised or powder-coated aluminium frames should also be regularly cleaned to sustain the original look of the product.

Recommended cleaning intervals are set out below:

Environment Distance from Ocean/Seafront Recommended Cleaning Interval
Mild > 10km Every 6 months
Moderate 1km to 10km Every 2-3 months
Marine 500m to 1km Every 2-4 weeks
Severe Marine < 500m Every 1-2 weeks


To keep your screens looking like new:

  1. Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.
  2. To remove dust, salt, dirt, and other deposits, wash the screen using a soft-bristled brush (non-abrasive) and a Ph neutral car wash detergent solution or Amplimesh® screen cleaner (see product instructions before use). Anodised finishes with greasy deposits or hard-to-remove grime should be cleaned with a soft cloth dipped in white spirit, and then wiped with a dry rag.
  3. Rinse off with lots of warm soapy water. Only mains water is to be used as recycled, bore or tank water may lead to detrimental corrosion effects.
  4. A quick wipe-over with an absorbent cloth chamois will prevent water marks from forming.


  • DO NOT allow excess water to enter the main lock and any auxiliary locks.
  • DO NOT under any circumstances use scourer pads, abrasive scouring cleaners, or caustic solution as these will cause permanent damage to the finish.
  • DO NOT use solvents or harsh detergents on any frame, mesh, or components as this could damage the finish and increase the likelihood of corrosion.
  • DO NOT let any solvents used on anodised finishes come into contact with rubber components, as they can degrade them.
  • DO NOT expose your anodised and powder coatings to excessive heat, heaters, or hot air guns – these may damage the coating.


The locking devices incorporated in these products are complex mechanisms, and regular maintenance, including the occasional lubrication of moving parts with an aerosol-based lubricant.

To do this, hold the handles down and spray the lubricant into the latch bolt cavity to lubricate door locks, then operate a few times to spread the lubricant around the moving parts.

Door handle pivots and hinge pivot pins can be lubricated where they fit into the lock body. Do not spray directly into the key slots of lock cylinders or onto the key. However, applied sparingly, dry graphite powder is a suitable lubricant for lock cylinders.
