Care and Maintenance

Warranty, Care and Maintenance of CCs mesh products

Overview

CCs has a number of mesh products for the security door, barrier door, railing and general markets. The mesh types include:

  1. 316 Stainless Steel
  2. Galvanised steel
  3. Perforated aluminium in various thicknesses
  4. ‘One way’ mesh in perforated aluminium in various thicknesses

These materials are designed, engineered and tested for varying mechanical and climatic conditions and are designed to perform at their best when an appropriate care and maintenance program is followed.  This maintenance guide is provided as a guide line and should be considered the minimum required to provide a long and satisfying service life for the product.

Where these simple and easy maintenance plans are observed the mesh products will be covered by the CCs 7 year warranty against mechanical defect or failure of the substrate and is limited to replacement of the mesh product as purchased.

NB: Warranty for gloss durability of powder coat is outside the scope of these warranties

316 Stainless Steel:

Mesh manufactured from this material will provide a superior resistance to corrosion in all climatic conditions. Typically supplied in a powder coated finish the product will prove to be a barrier to corrosion in difficult conditions such as beach side or industrial areas. To ensure the optimum life span for this product the following maintenance regime must be observed:

  1. Wash the mesh down with a neutral Ph washing detergent (such as good quality car wash) and water at least once per month. This will remove built up salt or acidic contaminants.  These build ups, if allowed to sit for more than this period have the ability to destroy the barrier of powder coat and may lead to a phenomenon known as ‘Tea Staining’. This staining looks like very light rust or red dust trails on the mesh and can be difficult to remove.
  2. Use a soft brush to gently remove any build-up of salt in beachside conditions as soon as practicable once discovered. This build up will typically look like a grey/white coloured powder that tends to sit in the mesh holes. Failure to remove this build up quickly will lead to unsightly stains and eventually failure of the finish on the mesh.

Galvanised Steel:

Mesh manufactured from this material is not suited to highly acidic or slaty environments such as beachside or industrial areas. This mesh provides a very good mechanical solution and meets all Australian standards. In order to optimise the life span for this product the following regime must be observed.

  1. Wash the mesh down with a neutral Ph washing detergent (such as good quality car wash) and water at least once per month. This will remove built up salt or acidic contaminants.  These build ups, if allowed to sit for more than this period have the ability to destroy the barrier of powder coat. Once the barrier is removed the galvanised finish will be subject to staining and may fail over time.
  2. Use a soft brush to gently remove any build-up of contaminants including dust and salt and then wash off with gentle pressure hose water.

Perforated Aluminium Mesh:

Mesh manufactured from this material will provide very good resistance to corrosion in all climatic conditions. Typically supplied in a powder coated finish the product will prove to be a barrier to corrosion in difficult conditions such as beach side or industrial areas. To ensure the optimum life span for this product the following maintenance regime must be observed:

  1. Wash the mesh down with a neutral Ph washing detergent (such as good quality car wash) and water at least once per month. This will remove built up salt or acidic contaminants.  These build ups, if allowed to sit for more than this period have the ability to destroy the barrier of powder coat. Once the barrier is removed the galvanised finish will be subject to staining and may fail over time.
  2. Use a soft brush to gently and carefully remove any build-up of contaminants including dust and salt and then wash off with gentle pressure hose water.
