Knightguard Rollergrilles and Rollershutters are designed to be virtually maintenance-free, but this is influenced by their installation setting and environmental effects.

Internally installed Rollergrilles or Rollershutters should be maintained six-monthly and external installations every three months.

POWDER-COATED / ANODISED ALUMINIUM - CARE & MAINTENANCE
To comply with warranty requirements and to extend the effective life of anodised/powder coated finishes, very simple maintenance and regular visual inspections should be scheduled and undertaken.
In general, anodised or powder-coated aluminium in urban areas should be cleaned every three months and every six months in rural areas. In industrial and marine environments (within 1km of the sea), monthly cold water washing as well as six-monthly washes, with warm water & detergent, is necessary.
1 - Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.
2 - Wash down using a soft brush (non-abrasive) and a mild household detergent solution to remove dust, salt, dirt, and other deposits.
3 - Anodised finishes with greasy deposits or hard to remove grime, should be cleaned with a soft cloth dipped in white spirit, turpentine, or kerosene, then wiped with a dry rag.
4 - Rinse off with lots of clean fresh water.
DO remove obvious deposits as they occur.
DO NOT use abrasive steel wool, scrapers, scouring liquids, or powders to remove paint splashes - these will damage your anodised/powder coating.
DO NOT use aggressive solvents, thinners, petrol etc, on powder coating as these solvents will attack gloss levels and reduce its life expectancy.
DO NOT let any solvents used on anodised finishes come in contact with any rubber components as they can degrade them.
DO NOT expose your anodised/powder coatings to excessive heat, heaters, or hot air guns - these may damage the coating.
