Additional care advice for Foil & High Gloss Finished Doors

Foil/Lacquer coated products are manufactured from the highest quality materials. Your gloss doors will come with a protective film over the front. You should remove this only after they are installed as the curing process continues for around 72 hours after the film is removed. This means the doors will be liable to scratching and other marks. You should avoid cleaning the doors for at least a few days to prevent any marks appearing on the surface.


Moisture: Please be careful not to puncture the foil/melamine lacquered surface of your panels. These should be kept dry to prevent moisture ingress.


Light: If the doors are supplied with a protective film on the face they must not be directly exposed to sunlight. Once installation is complete, carefully remove the protective film from the front of the fascia.


There are a number of products available which are designed for cleaning high gloss doors, but plain water can be used for regular cleans. Always use a lint free soft cloth and use a circular motion to achieve a high buff. Micro-fibre cloths are perfect for achieving a high shine with little effort. High gloss doors may show fingerprints, which can be easily cleaned with a soft cloth.
