Shower Screen Maintenance

Learn how to keep your Bradnam’s shower screens in perfect condition, and functioning accordingly with these care and adjustment tips.

Powder coated Frame

  • In a rural atmosphere, cleaning may not be needed more frequently than every 6 months.
  • In industrial and marine environments, more frequent cleaning (e.g. monthly, every 3 months is necessary)
  • It is important that non-abrasive mild detergent solution is used for cleaning.
  • Add the non-abrasive mild detergent solution to a bucket of warm water.
  • Wet a clean soft, non-abrasive damp cloth then wipe the aluminium.
  • Make sure that the surfaces are thoroughly rinsed after cleaning to remove all residues.

Glass

  • Cleaning of glass should be performed at least weekly to remove soap stains, which left unclean can etch the shower screen glass, marking it permanently.
  • Glass can be cleaned with a soft clean rag without buttons or grit. Use a few drops of diluted methylated spirits or alternatively a recommended spray on glass cleaner solution, following the manufacturers’ instructions.
  • Excess cleaning solvents should be removed with a squeegee and clean water immediately. Never use abrasive cleaners on glass as this could result in scratching the surface of the glass.
  • Check that there is adequate clearance between all glass edges and that buffers and stops are intact.

Hardware

(Frameless Shower Screen only)

  • The surface of these fittings should always be cleaned with a small amount of detergent in water, followed by a clean water rinse and wiped only with a clean 100% cotton terry cloth towel.
  • Never use abrasive cleaners, as scratching will result. Also never use paper towels, paper based wipes, cellulose, plastic sponges or fake chemois cloths, as they are highly abrasive.
  • Hinges and fixings are to be checked at least every 6 months to ensure screws have not become loose, and that the hinges operate smoothly.
  • Apply a few drops of sewing machine oil to the pivot pin on metal hinges every 6 months.
  • In a rural environment, away from the coast and remote industry and urban activity, maintenance must be performed every 6 months.
  • Urban locations, inland and away from heavy industrial activity, maintenance must be done every 3 months.
  • Coastal areas, subject to salt deposition and within 15km of the eastern coast or 10km of the western coast of Australia, fortnightly maintenance is advisable. However, the maximum period between maintenance should never exceed 1 month.
