There are 34  attractive and long wearing powder coated finishes available, meaning there is a finish to suit every property. The smooth powder coated finish on the door and frame can simply be wiped clean, and does not require re-painting.

GDO Pull Handles S/S Care and Maintenance
GDO garage doors come with pull handles to the front panel as standard.
The pull handles are made using grade 304 Stainless steel for use externally and internally in heavily sanitised areas such as kitchens and washrooms. 
Like all steel, failure to keep the item clean can cause surface blemishes and what looks like a major product failure and rusting.
You will often find marks appearing in the winter when the roads have been gritted, salt on the surface are all steel products arch enemy.
If your pull bars develop small blemished areas during December, January and February in particular then you should wash them off using cold water and washing up liquid, you can use a cream cleaner like CIF rubbed lightly to remove the blemishes.
If you have them appear it means you have salt on the surface and need to increase the frequency of the door washdown.
Please remember all stainless steel can blemish even knives and forks in a dishwasher because salt is used as a scrubbing agent, wiping blemishes off with a cloth is standard practice and you should treat the door bars the same, clean and wipe regularly. 
If you live close to the sea or estuary you should apply a light oil after washing once a month to keep the item clean and fresh.

The ORDERING sizes for PURPOSE MADE doors refer to the dimensions for the OVERALL door and steel sub frame size. Allow 10mm minimum tolerance on the width and between 5-10mm on the height for your brickwork opening sizes.

If your opening is larger then packers and trims can be used to cloak the gaps where you pack out to accommodate the sub frame, or you can use a timber sub frame which can be any size you require.
