Balustrade Maintenance and powdercoat care

The effects of ultra violet light, pollution, dirt, grime and salt deposits can all accumulate on your balustrade surface over time. To extend the effective life of the powdercoated / anodised finish and protect any warranty requirements that may exist, a very simple regular maintenance program should be implemented for the removal of any residues.

As a general rule, cleaning should take place every 4 months. However, in areas where pollutants are more prevalent, especially in coastal or industrial regions, a cleaning program should be carried out on a more frequent basis (i.e. every 3 months).

To clean your balustrade surface:

  1. Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge
  2. Use a soft brush (non abrasive) or cloth, and a mild household detergent solution to remove dust, salt and other deposits.
  3. Rinse off with clean fresh water

Detergents that recommend the use of gloves when handling should be avoided as this is a good indication that the detergent is harsh and, therefore, unsuitable for cleaning your balustrades.

Although some strong solvents are recommended for removing sealants or other building residues, these may be harmful to the extended life of the balustrade surface and should also be avoided as the damage may not be visible immediately and may take up to 12 months to appear.

If paint splashes, sealants or other residue need to be removed, then Methylated Spirits, Turpentine, or White Spirits may be used safely.
