Care Instructions

Our Purpose

1. Introduction

All Apeer composite products are designed to be low maintenance, high security doorsets.  Any maintenance required to keep your Apeer door in top condition is simple to perform and does not require any specialist expertise or tools.

Please follow these simple guidelines.

General Maintenance:

Painted Surfaces, PVC and Foiled Frames

The paint used on Apeer doors and accessories is hard–wearing and low maintenance and the build up of dirt and toxins from pollution can degrade the paint finish and reduce its life expectancy.

Painted surfaces, PVC and foiled frames should be cleaned once a month using a soft camel hair brush to remove loose grit and dirt, before wiping the surface with a soft cloth, using warm water and a mild detergent.


Constant abrasion and impact from dangling keys will damage the paint surface in the same way as you would expect with a car door.  We strongly recommend that your door key is kept separate and attached only to a soft fob.

Handles, Letterboxes, Knockers, Hinges and other Door Furniture

Door furniture should be wiped with a soft cloth soaked in warm water and a mild detergent once a month.  Mechanical parts should be lightly oiled bi–annually.

Multi–Point Locking System and Cylinder                                             

The locking system should be lubricated bi–annually by applying grease to the hooks, deadbolt, face of the latch and the sides of the rollers.  The roller slots should be oiled with a general lubricant.

Spray a silicone or graphite based lubricant into the cylinder twice a year.  Never use grease or oil in the cylinder.

3. Warranty

Failure to carry out regular and routine service in accordance with these guidelines may result in reduced levels of performance and in some cases invalidate the warranty.

4. Precautions

When using cleaning and lubricating products always follow the manufacturers instructions. Take care not to use excessive quantities.  When using any cleaning products always ensure that a very mild detergent is used (warm soapy water) and that a small area has been tested beforehand.  Only use a soft camel hair brush or linen cloth to clean the door set.

No solvent based or abrasive cleaning products, or those which contain bleaching agents, should be used as these will deteriorate the quality of any painted or anodised surfaces and will invalidate the warranty.

Never use metal polish or a wire brush to clean hardware or the doorset including Brasso or Silvo.
