Care & Maintenance Guide

IMPORTANT: Please read prior to using your Claytons Alfresco, as resultant damage caused by failing to follow the care and maintenance guidelines contained in this document may void your warranty.

BENCHTOPS – Granite
Granite is a hard but porous stone. Variation in colour, grain, structure and veining is to be expected. Small holes, pot marks, fine cracks, crystals and imperfections are common in many granite colours and are unavoidable. Different granites come in varying slab sizes and as such joints in benchtops may be unavoidable.

Care & Maintenance Tips

  • Always clean spills as soon as possible.
  • To maintain your benchtops use warm soapy water and a soft cloth.
  • Avoid abrasive products for cleaning.
  • To avoid cracking, do not place hot items directly on the stone surface.
  • Use trivets or mats under hot dishes and placemats under china, ceramics, silver, or other objects that can scratch the surface.
  • Do not sit or stand on granite benchtops particularly at weak points and island overhangs etc.

CABINETRY – Doors and Panels, Cabinets, Hinges and Drawers

Doors and Panels are made using a durable, lightweight extruded aluminium frame with a water and UV resistant composite aluminium insert panel. Cabinets are made from a lightweight PVC foam material with waterproof properties. Hinges are made from 304 grade stainless steel and the drawers are galvanized with a high wearing powder coat finish.

Care & Maintenance Tips

Doors, Panels and Cabinets

  • Routine cleaning of the surfaces is recommended.
  • Use water and mild detergent with a damp soft cloth or sponge (not an abrasive sponge or steel wool), followed by a clean water rinse and towel dry.

Galvanized and Powder-Coated Frames

Frames are made from two types of materials. The fascias consist of a hot-dipped zinc sheet material that is then powder-coated in a high UV resistant finish. The frames and components are hot-dipped galvanized steel, which gives protection from the elements.
