How to keep your window hinges clean and functional ... a bit of love will go a long way!
Maintenance of your windows is straight forward and highly recommended. Keep the friction stay track free from dirt and the hinge mechanism clean. Every few years, lubricate the metal parts with machine oil, concentrating on the pivot points. With a bit of maintenance your windows will last longer and will cause less trouble in the future.
We recommend to do window maintenance every couple of years
Clean hinges with cloth
Clear friction stay track
Lubricate all moving metal parts
Friction can be increased or decreased by adjustment of the turning screw
Replace damaged parts immediately
What to avoid
Windows are very robust, but some things need to be avoided.
Having windows open during a storm
Window hinges exposed to rain
Constant condensation from inside
Damaged seals which allow dirt and dust to enter
Moving without lubricant
