Frameless Shower Screen Maintenance

Shower Screen Maintenance

  • Frameless and semi-frameless shower screens hinges, sliding door rollers and clamp fittings:
    • immediate maintenance is required if you notice the door has shifted position by more than 1-2mm
    • immediate maintenance is required if you notice that any glass edge is rubbing or hitting against anything
    • we recommend you check for any maintenance issues on a regular basis (e.g. once every 6-12 months)
    • give all screws a quick tighten, to ensure none have come loose (especially on hinges and sliding door rollers)
    • check all hinges or sliding door rollers are operating smoothly, apply a lubricating oil if required
    • check all glass panels have adequate clearance (spacing buffers)
  • To clean shower screen hardware and fittings, use a solution of warm water & mild detergent. Wipe clean with a cloth, and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Under no circumstances should you use a solvent, harsh detergent, bleach, or any abrasive cleaners. Failure to do so may void your warranty.
  • To clean your shower screen glass, lightly spray the glass with a quality glass cleaner (make sure you carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions on the pack). Using a plastic squeegee, work the cleaning product around the glass to remove soap stains and calcium deposits. Shower screen glass should be cleaned regularly, we recommend a weekly cleaning to remove soap stains and calcium deposits, which if left uncleaned, can etch white markings on the glass permanently, and possibly void your warranty.

Sliding Door Roller Maintenance

  • we recommend you check the screws for the sliding door rollers haven't come loose and tighten them once every 6-12 months
  • if you notice the door is getting stuck or jammed, stop using the shower screen immediately until you get the door serviced

EnduroShield Treated Glass Maintenance

  • Shower glass needs to be cleaned each week using a damp microfibre cloth and a mild detergent (such as washing up liquid) to remove any soap scum, dirt or grime from the surface. Then dry the glass with squeegee that has a good quality soft rubber blade.
  • Be careful not to use any rough, gritty, abrasive, highly acidic or alkaline cleaners as they may damage the protective coating. This includes products such as Comet (powder), Ajax, or cerium oxide which damage or polish back the actual substrate.
  • For areas with hard water or bore water, due to a higher concentrate of mineral deposits such as lime and calcium, a build up may occur on the protective coating that may not be easily removed with a mild detergent. A solution of white vinegar and water (1 part vinegar to 4 parts water) should be sprayed onto the glass and allowed to soak for several minutes. This will dissolve any mineral deposits that have built up on the glass surface. Re-spray the glass with the vinegar solution and then wipe firmly with a microfibre cloth. A stronger solution of vinegar to water can be used if needed.

Mirror Maintenance

  • Lightly spray the mirror with a quality glass cleaner (make sure you carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions on the pack).
  • Chemical cleaners should be kept away from the back and edges of the mirror, as it can erode the metallic paint on the back of the mirror.
