What is the best way to clean any type of Jbead linear bar grille*?

Depending on the Finish and Material of your hand crafted, architectural grille provided by Advanced Arch Grilles, there are a number of different cleaning options and techniques.

Aluminum Linear Bar Grilles

  • Satin – Rub grille lightly with a fine Scotch-Brite pad in the same direction of the grain until the finish is restored.  You can also use a cloth with a cleaner such as Windex, or simply use a soft damp cloth.
     
  • Mirror Polish – Polish the grille with Noxon, metal polish.  You can also use Windex or a soft damp cloth.
     
  • Baked Enamel – Please use ONLY a soft damp cloth, preferably cotton and please, absolutely NO cleaners.
     
  • Anodized Color – Please use ONLY a soft damp cloth, preferably cotton and please, absolutely NO cleaners.
     

Stainless Steel Linear Bar Grilles

  • Satin – Rub grille lightly with a fine Scotch-Brite pad in the same direction of the grain until the finish is restored.  You can also use a cloth with a cleaner such as Windex, or simply use a soft damp cloth.
     
  • Mirror Polish – Polish the grille with Noxon, metal polish.  You can also use Windex or a soft damp cloth.  It is best to use a light, circular motion.
     

Bronze Linear Bar Grilles

  • Satin (no protective top coat) – Rub grille lightly with a fine Scotch-Brite pad in the same direction of the grain until the finish is restored.
     
  • Satin (with protective top coat) – Please use a soft damp cloth ONLY.  Using anything other than a soft damp cloth will ruin the lacquer.
     
  • Mirror Polish (no protective top coat) – You can use Noxon to regain the mirror finish.  It is best to use a light, circular motion.
     
  • Mirror Polish (with protective top coat) – Please use a soft damp cloth ONLY.  Using anything other than a soft damp cloth may damage the finish.
     
  • Statuary Finish – Please use a soft damp cloth ONLY.  Remember, without a top-coat, the finish will naturally age to a fine tone and character.
