How to maintain and clean your aluminum roll-up doors
The Gortite Roll-Up Door requires very little maintenance, and is simple to clean.
Any door with a painted surface should not be aggressively cleaned for 30 days from the time of shipment.
When cleaning the anodized door slats, use only a mild non-abrasive soap and water.
The side channels should also be inspected and cleaned periodically. Use the same type of soap as above and remove the dirt and grime from inside the channels. A silicone spray can be applied to ensure smooth operation. Do not use lithium or grease to lubricate the track. These lubricants only attract dirt.
Smooth door operation is the goal, and cleaning any friction spots will help achieve this goal. After they are clean, the friction spots may be sprayed with dry silicone to enhance operation.
