Maintenance

Maintenance for Galvanised NCS Lockers

To extend the life of Galvanised Lockers and to comply with warranty requirements, a simple, regular maintenance program should be implemented.

The effects of ultra violet light, atmospheric pollution, dirt, grime & airborne salt deposits can all accumulate over time and should be removed at regular intervals.
As a general rule cleaning should take place every three months. In areas where pollutants are more prevalent, such as coastal areas, and industrial or geothermal areas, then a cleaning program should be carried out on a more frequent basis, ie. Every One to Two months.

Steps:
1.Carefully remove any loose surface deposits with a damp sponge.
2.Use a soft brush (non-abrasive) and a dilute solution of a mild detergent eg. pH neutral liquid handwashing detergent in warm water to remove dust, salt and other deposits.
3.Ensure you thoroughly rinse the surfaces with clean water after cleaning to remove all residues.
4.It is recommended to dry Locker Systems with a clean, soft, dry cloth to remove all water to prevent white rust forming.

DO NOT:
•Do Not hose out Galvanised NCS Lockers without drying them, to help prevent oxidisation.
•Do Not use acid-based products on Galvanised NCS Lockers, as this may react with the galvanised finish.

Maintenance for Powder Coated NCS Lockers

To extend the life of Powder Coated Lockers and to comply with warranty requirements, a simple, regular maintenance program should be implemented.

The effects of ultra violet light, atmospheric pollution, dirt, grime & airborne salt deposits can all accumulate over time and should be removed at regular intervals.
As a general rule cleaning should take place every three months. In areas where pollutants are more prevalent, such as coastal areas, and industrial or geothermal areas, then a cleaning program should be carried out on a more frequent basis, ie. Every One to Two months.

Steps:
1.Carefully remove any loose surface deposits with a damp sponge.
2.Use a soft brush (non-abrasive) and a dilute solution of a mild detergent eg. pH neutral liquid hand washing detergent in warm water to remove dust, salt and other deposits.
3.Ensure you thoroughly rinse the surfaces with clean fresh water after cleaning to remove all residues.

DO NOT:
•Do Not use turpentine, spirits, thinner or other aggressive solvents on powder coating (these may be harmful to the extended life of the powder coated surface and should be avoided as the damage may not be visible immediately and may take up to twelve months to appear)
•Do Not rub powder coating excessively, especially metallic finishes.
•Do Not adhere anything to the Powder Coated surface.
•Keep sunscreens away from powder coating, some sunscreens adversely affect painted finishes.
•Do Not hose out Powder Coated Lockers as this could over time cause damage to the Powder Coated finish.

Maintenance for Stainless Steel NCS Lockers

To extend the life of Stainless Steel Lockers and to comply with warranty requirements, a simple, regular maintenance program should be implemented.

The effects of ultra violet light, atmospheric pollution, dirt, grime & airborne salt deposits can all accumulate over time and should be removed at regular intervals.
As a general rule cleaning should take place every three months. In areas where pollutants are more prevalent, such as coastal areas, and industrial or geothermal areas, then a cleaning program should be carried out on a more frequent basis, ie. Every One to Two months.

3.Ensure you thoroughly rinse the surfaces with clean fresh water after cleaning to remove all residues.
4.It is recommended to dry Locker Systems with a clean, soft, dry cloth to remove all water to prevent staining & discolouration or rust.


DO NOT:
•Do Not use Chlorides, Acids, Turpentine, Spirits, Thinner or other aggressive solvents on Stainless Steel (these may be harmful to the extended life of the Stainless Steel surface and should be avoided as the damage may not be visible immediately and may take up t twelve months to appear)
•Do Not rub Stainless Steel surfaces excessively, or with anything abrasive, as this will scratch & damage the Stainless properties of the steel, causing pitting and rusting.
