Xcell Care and Maintenance

Security screen mesh acts as an air filter, and as air flows freely indoors, it traps airborne contaminants onto the screen. SecureView Eclipx 316 Marine Grade Stainless steel mesh is highly corrosion resistant, however, dirt and in particular salt will crystallise on the screen and immediately try to attack the powder coating on the screen. Regular cleaning to remove airborne contaminants will keep your screens looking and performing their best.

Your screens must be cleaned in accordance with the cleaning frequency relating to the environmental location of your screens using: • 11 Year Standard Warranty – regular car wash and wax with the option of using CommandeX Clean and Protect.  • 15 Year Extended Warranty – CommandeX Clean and CommandeX Protect (CommandeX specialised cleaning & maintenance products available for purchase from www.commandex.com.au/shop).

Cleaning & Maintenance Instructions

Wash your privacy screens in accordance with the ‘Cleaning Schedule’ details above. STEP 1 – Hose Down Using mains water (not bore or tank water), hose the screens to wash salt, dirt and dust off. If using a water blaster it is best to use the car attachment or simply stand back with the nozzle at least a metre away so you do not strip the paint protection or powdercoating off the screen. STEP 2 – Wash Wash the screens with a soft cloth using the cleaner recommended in the ‘Cleaning Schedule’. STEP 3 – Final Hose Down Hose down to rinse the cleaning product off the screen. STEP 4 – Apply CommandeX Protect** (extended warranty) Pour CommandeX Protect** onto a soft rag and wipe on the inside and outside of the screen. CommandeX Protect** is an anticorrosion lubricant to extend the life of your screens. IMPORTANT NOTES: Wash contaminants like bird and bat droppings off immediately. These are very acidic and will permanently damage the paint. Some screens will require extra cleaning & maintenance due to local environmental conditions such as iron rich red dirt or heavy industrial nearby. If the screen is only accessible from the outside, you only need to wipe CommandeX Protect** onto the outside of the screen as contaminates generally enter the screen from the outside of the screen. **Available for purchase at www.commandex.com.au/shop *** A saltwater coastline is the area where land meets the sea or ocean; or a line that forms the boundary between the land and the ocean or a lake. Please Don’t… -Use vinegar, dishwashing detergent, cream cleanser, white spirits, lemon or harsh chemicals to clean the screens. It is bad for the paint and you could strip off the paint protection or powder-coating. -Use a broom or harsh brush to wash the screens. You could scratch or scrub off the paint protection or powder-coating. -Use bore or tank water as it may leave more contaminates on the screen. Typically bore water has high levels of iron and leaves brown staining. Avoid tank or recycled water if possible. -Neglect to follow cleaning and maintenance instructions as your screens will not survive blemish free for long. Failure to follow cleaning and maintenance instructions will not be covered by warranty.
