Caring for your PCA aluminum screen door is a simple procedure. You can keep your screen door in like-new condition with just a few steps and materials.
IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT USE lacquer thinner, paint thinner, acetone, kerosene, gasoline or any other harsh chemicals to clean the surface of your PCA screen door or hardware.
I Door Frame Maintenance
Cleaning the door frame couldn't be easier. Simply wipe the door and screen with a mild detergent soap, rinse and wipe dry. Never use harsh chemicals to clean your door.
I Hinges & Hardware Maintenance
In most instances you never have to lubricate your screen door. You can ensure your door will always swinging smoothly by applying WD-40 or a 3-in-1 oil to the knuckle of the hinge after cleaning. We recommend once a year. Wipe off excess lubricant.
I Adjusting Pneumatic Closer
Door closers can be easily adjusted for proper closing.
TO SPEED UP OR SLOW DOWN THE CLOSER
Turn the screw at the end of the piston assembly clockwise to increase pressure. This slows the closer, OR turn it counter clockwise to decrease the pressure which speeds up the closer.
TO RECALIBRATE THE CLOSER
With the door closed, turn the screw counter clockwise until the screw is nearly out. Open the door all the way and while door is open turn the screw clockwise until it stops. Slowly back the screw out until a desired speed of closure is achieved.
This process may take a few attempts; the closers can be sensitive and may require very slight turns and adjustments to reach your desired setting.
I Flush Bolts
If your slide bolts don't engage smoothly, simply lubricate the flush bolts with a small amount of silicone spray or multi-purpose lubricant. Operate slide bolts monthly to ensure proper functioning.
I Scuff marks, chips, or scratches on powder coated finish
Clean the powder coated surface with a mild detergent soap, rinse and wipe dry. Use a mild liquid cleanser such as Soft Scrub® by Clorox, rinse and wipe dry. If there is a chip or scratch present after surface is clean and dry apply touch-up paint. To order matching touch up paint click here.
Sometimes handle hardware, closure tubes, bug sweeps or screens may need to be replaced after years of wear. See your dealer or fill out the form on this page to inquire about where to buy replacement screen door parts.
