Maintaining Your Plantation Shutters
There are a few things you should know in order to keep your plantation shutters looking beautiful and functioning smoothly.
The Plantation Shutters must be cleaned periodically with water and MILD soap ONLY.
After cleaning immediately dry off any water or moisture with a soft cloth.
DO NOT use any hard chemicals or abrasives as this will damage the finish of the shutters.
DO NOT use any ammonia based cleaners as this will damage the finish of the plantation shutters.
When dusting, you may use a soft cloth or feather duster.
Plantation Shutters operating instructions
- Opening & Closing blades:
- When opening & closing blades apply two hands to separate blades.
- Place one hand on an upper blade and place the other hand on a lower blade and then gently turn the blades open or shut. DO NOT force the blades.
- Opening Shutters Panels:
- DO NOT slam shutter panel open or shut.
- Care must be taken when opening shutter panels.
- Hinged Shutters panels:
- Place one hand on the bottom rail close to the edge of the shutter, the other hand in a similar position as high up the shutter panel as possible and gently open the shutter panel. Ensure that the outer shutter panel is opened first.
- Opening Sliding Shutters Panels:
- Ensure that the shutter louvre blades are closed before attempting to open the sliding shutter.
- Gently slide the shutter panel open or shut. Ensure the sliding shutter panel is sitting securely on the bottom guide.
- Bi Folding Shutters:
- Panels should be closed from the pivoting outer panel. Bi-fold shutters have many different configurations including the number of panels and the direction in which they fold. In all cases it is necessary to start with pivoting panel (s) first. Once the shutters are in the fully closed position it is possible to open the blades. For opening (or stacking) the shutters it is necessary to close the blades first. Then the reverse applies.
- DO NOT leave windows open during periods of windy or wet weather conditions as winds may blow the shutter panels open, which may cause damage to the shutter panel.
- If the shutters are fitted outdoors then shutters should be secured so that they do not get slammed open or closed during windy periods.
- Children should be supervised during the operation of shutters.
