Leaded Glass

Wash with warm soapy water

Hardware (Handles, Knockers, etc.)

Maintaining your door


Keep them at their best by lubricating with a little light engineering oil - e.g. 3 in 1

Cylinder Locks

Need lubricating with a Teflon based lubricant

These are sensitive so don't use oil or graphite powder

Hardware (Handles, Knockers, etc.)

Just add a touch of light engineering oil on all moving parts

Especially important if you are living near the cost, or by a building site or industrial area



  • Washing up liquid or detergent
  • Abrasive cleaners or scouring pads
  • High pressure or Steam cleaners
  • Bleach, solvents (spirits and thinners) or adhesives
  • Before cleaning your door remove all rings, bracelets, and watches

Important - protect your door from natural thermal distortion by ensuring the top and bottom locking points are engaged by pulling the handle up every time you shut the door
