Warranty, Care and Maintenance for Poly 316 Stainless Steel Mesh
Where does tea staining occur?
Perform regular maintenance
Washing removes contaminants (such as salt) that can cause surface corrosion and is necessary to avoid tea staining and maintain the mesh in good condition. Please refer to the following schedule:
|Mild||More than 10km from coast||Every 6 months|
|Moderate||1km to 10km from coast||Every 4 months|
|Marine||500m to 1km from coast||Once per month minimum|
|Marine||Less than 500m from coast||2-4 times per month|
Care and Maintenance
- Wash both surfaces of the stainless steel insect screen mesh in warm soapy water to remove any build up of dirt, salt etc. Rinse in fresh water and dry. This is to be done in accordance with the above table.
- Avoid physical damage to the black powder coating on the wire surface.
- Avoid contact with dissimilar metals as this can cause galvanic corrosion. Insect screen frames made from aluminium should be powdercoated to a uniform 0.05mm minimum.
- Avoid installation in locations where the insect screen mesh is continuously exposed to damp conditions.
