Below are install guides and some other useful information to help make the job easier, along with maintenance and warranty information.

Handling Glass

Due to the weight and nature of glass panels we recommend a two-person lift when moving the panels. When moving and storing the glass it is vital that the glass edges and corners never make contact with hard surfaces such as concrete or tiles.

Spigot Post Installation


Like all surfaces, stainless steel and aluminium requires cleaning to remove dirt and grime to keep it in pristine condition. The level of cleaning and maintenance required depends primarily on the environment, e.g. coastal situations, the surfaces will require regular washing to retain their good looks and prevent tea staining.

Environment Posts/Spigot
Seafront Monthly
Coastal (within 5km of the coast) 6-12 months
Urban 6-12 months
Suburban Rural As required to maintain appearance

NOTE: Harsh abrasives should never be used on any polished metal surface.
