Just as washing your car is important for removing dirt and grime, your GRIDLOC screen also needs to be given a regular wash to keep it looking good. The effects of exposure to UV light, atmospheric pollution, general dirt, grime and airborne salt deposits can accumulate over time and should be removed at regular intervals depending on the environment. The aim is to keep the screen as clean as possible to reduce the risk of any damage occurring to the product.
The steps to cleaning your GRIDLOC screen are:
- Remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.
- Use a soft brush and mild detergent in warm water to remove dust, salt or other deposits.
- Rinse thoroughly with clean fresh water to remove any remaining detergent etc.
- Take care when cleaning the flywire. Lightly using a vacuum cleaner may assist in removing any dust buildup.
Please note: Bonds Security Products does not take any responsibility for any damage caused to the powder coating, if the cleaning (as stated above) is not carried out. If the purchaser requests an inspection, the purchaser will be responsible for any callout and cleaning charges.

REGULAR LUBRICATION OF LOCKS
In order for Bonds Security Products to provide the customer with a long lasting locking system to doors and windows, we recommend that customers should lubricate the locks (as often as suggested above) in all mechanically moving positions in order for the lock to move freely and reduce the chances of any problems occurring. We recommend using a product called INOX, which can be purchased from Bonds Security Products or any good hardware store. In areas where pollutants are more prevalent, such as areas close to the beach and industrial areas, lubrication should be carried out more frequently.
The suggested cleaning intervals stated above are only a guide and in some areas earlier attention may be required.
The GRIDLOC 10 Year Warranty will be void if general maintenance, as stated above, is not carried out.
The GRIDLOC 10 Year Warranty does not provide for any fault arising out of obvious damage, misuse, removal or installation performed other than by an authorised Bonds Security Products Installer.
The purchaser of the security products must ensure that the above maintenance has been carried out before calling Bonds Security Products to arrange a Warranty call. If the customer fails to do so, a Service charge may apply.
All Service calls, after the inital 12-month Warranty expires, are charged at the current service charge rate per call-out. Extra labour and materials are charged if required.
