Care & Finishing

您的辛普森门已被手工制作到持续年份。And like any piece of fine furniture, it needs proper finishing and periodic maintenance to keep it performing its best. For a long-lasting, beautiful Simpson door, please follow the instructions as outlined in the appropriate section below. Failure to follow Simpson's care & finishing recommendations will void the door's warranty.

Finishing Options

Because Simpson doors are crafted with only the finest materials, you can choose from a wide variety of stain or paint possibilities. Paint dealers have a broad selection of color chips on hand to demonstrate the look you can achieve when staining fine wood such as douglas fir, western hemlock or red oak used in Simpson doors.

If you choose paint instead of stain, you can apply either oil-base or acrylic resin-base paints over an oil-base primer. However, take care in following the finishing instructions provided here. Also, be sure to evaluate the conditions your Simpson door must endure, such as direct exposure to severe climates, before deciding on the specific finish to use. All Simpson doors must be finished within 72 hours after installation to meet manufacturer's warranty.

CAUTION:If during the finish process you are having issues and/or identify problems with your door, stop finishing immediately and contact the company from where you purchased your doors.

PREPARATION FOR FINISHING

  1. 在涂上第一层涂层之前,通过用180个砂纸砂纸打磨所有表面(这适用于原料木材和灌注门),取下所有处理标记,凸起的谷物和其他不良瑕疵。对于带振动器伸出的门,用砂纸轻轻放松粘贴的外边缘。为了避免跨谷物划痕,用谷物沙。注意:少量润滑脂,油或沥青可以用变性的酒精或松节管擦拭干净。
  2. Adjust or align components if necessary before finishing. Wood panels "float" and may be knocked into alignment with a wood block and hammer. Be careful not to damage door.
  3. 打磨后,用布彻底清洁门以除去所有灰尘或异物。不要使用腐蚀性或磨料清洁剂。
  4. 完成前挂门,然后拆下完成。在安装硬件之前必须适当地密封门,并暴露于水分或天气。在长时间储存​​之前立即正确地完成门。
  5. 门的所有表面必须正确完成。边缘(顶部,底部和侧面)应涂覆有施加到门的外表面的每个涂层。门必须在完成前干燥。
  6. On doors that are glazed with clear glass, the finish used should be flowed from the wood slightly onto the glass. This will provide assurance against water leakage and protect the glazing compound "putty" from drying out. Excess putty can be removed, just make sure to not use anything sharp like a razor blade, as glass can be scratched.
  7. 注意:终身责任在完成之前保护玻璃。如果使用胶带,请在施加大表面之前进行在玻璃的小面积上使用的胶带的测试。完成后,尽快取出胶带。
  8. On doors that have plastic film protection on glass, removal of plastic film protection immediately after applying the finish is required. Failure to remove the plastic film at this time may cause harm to the glass and will create difficulty in removing the film at a later time.请勿使用剃刀刀片或尖锐物体去除胶片或清洁玻璃。这些物品将划伤玻璃。

外观整理

The recommended process for finishing Simpson doors is a 3-step process. Step 1: application of a wood conditioner. Step 2: application of a stain. Step 3: application of at least three top coats of a clear finish. When selecting the finishes for these three steps, select products that have been designed to work together.

木质护件准备木材以均匀接受,并有助于均匀地涂抹。选择木质调节器时,调节器的类型需要匹配污渍。例如,用于水基染色的水基调节剂或用于油基污渍的油基调节剂。

Stains are available in a wide range of colors. Whatever color you select should have an alkyd-resin base. Under no circumstances should a lacquer-based finish system be used on exterior doors.

The three (minimum) top coats may be a solvent-borne (oil-base, alkyd resin-base, polyurethane resin-base) or a water-borne (acrylic resin-base) clear finish. See notes (1) and (2) below.

The advantages and disadvantages of solvent-borne vs. water-borne clear finishes are as follows:

  1. Solvent-Borne Advantages: Cures faster, harder and more water resistant. May be applied under variable weather conditions. Disadvantages: Subject to ultraviolet degradation and not as flexible or durable as water-borne clear finish.
  2. 水源性优势:非常灵活,紫外线较大,外部耐用性良好。缺点:不能施加50ºF,需要长固化期,并且可能无法完全治愈数周。水敏感,直至固化完成。

NOTE:不要在透明丙烯酸的涂层之间沙子。如果防止阳光和风化的直接影响,所有污渍和清晰的饰面都将更好地表现出更好的,并且不经常需要更好的净化。

油漆结束

Either oil-base or acrylic resin-base exterior grade paints may be used with success on panel doors. Oil-base paints offer more resistance to the passage of water (liquid and vapor) than acrylic resin-base paints, but the latter have better durability and color retention.

门应用良好的质量油基底密封,然后用两种油碱或丙烯酸树脂基涂料的两层顶层。当然,两个底漆和顶部外套都应由相同的制造商制成,并设计为组合。

如果大门已经提供了工厂灌注,则需要在绘画前进行一些基本的准备工作。所有底漆应磨砂砂,以鼓励更好的油漆粘附。任何粗糙的底漆或机加工木材也应该被打磨。适用于带Waterbarrier的门®技术,无论是外部阶梯和铁路rfaces nor the exterior divided lite bars (made from PVC) are to be sanded.

NOTE:如果可能的暴露在直接的阳光下或雨中是一个因素,可以保持木门的美丽,他们需要定期重新密封或绘画依赖于天气或湿度暴露。不要使用深色污渍或油漆on doors exposed to sunlight, as some expansion and contraction of door parts may occur. Further, a dark colored stain or paint can void the door's warranty.

CAUTION:辛普森门公司无法评估所有可用的涂料和污渍,也不是客户的具体应用要求。您的油漆经销商应该知道合适的饰面系统,使您所在地区的令人满意的结果。强烈建议选择顶级质量完成,并明确遵循容器上的应用程序说明。

Sikkens Cetol门和窗户饰面产品不应用于整理辛普森门。该产品导致该领域的表现不佳。使用Sikkens Cetol Door&Window产品将无效辛普森的保修。

High Exposure Finishing

  1. 使用油基底漆,然后在外部上使用至少三种高质量的油或丙烯酸类涂料。丙烯酸更耐用,具有更好的色温。
  2. 在每个玻璃窗格的周边围绕每个玻璃窗格的周边使用硅胶或填缝珠(必须与涂料兼容)。这将密封腻子并防止任何水分直接跑到门口。
  3. Ensure all finish coats are allowed to flow into the glass area at least 1/16".
  4. 确保在门的表面上的所有涂层也施加到顶部和底部。涂上各门的所有六个侧面,或者您的保修将无效。
  5. 硅胶门底部扫到门的底部并涂抹在每个门的底部的表面安装滴水帽,以允许水分径流到窗台上。
  6. 对于外卖装置:在完成无效门的顶部之前,请务必用硅胶或填缝填充冲洗螺栓制备周围的榫眼袋。水分在外卖单位上有一个汇集在这个区域的历史。在门顶部考虑一层薄薄的金属,以防止水分与木材直接接触。
  7. 风暴或屏幕门可能是强制性的,以完全消除水分问题。风暴门必须排放以消除温度积聚。
  8. 性能系列®建议为高曝光门开口升级。要求Waterbarrier.®和超级锁®technologies from your Simpson retailer to get the most life out of your door. And if you are selecting a french door, we strongly recommend specifying Simpson's WaterBarrier technology.

油漆完成细节

  1. "Bridge" finish from face of door to moulding, ensuring there is no gap between moulding and surface of the door.
  2. “桥梁”饰面如上所述,在模制面板和/或玻璃的面板区域内。
  3. Ensure all moulding miters are well-coated, leaving no gaps.

Jamb-to-Sill Specifics

  1. 填缝在塞尔到山雀腿部连接。
  2. Use corner pads where sill meets jamb.
  3. 洪水冲洗螺栓孔在填缝或硅树脂的门槛。

室内整理

污点透明

A solvent-borne or water-borne finish system can be used for interior doors and may be a lacquer-based system. If a brush application is to be used, it is recommended that a presealer be used prior to staining. For best performance, a minimum of two clear top coats should be used over stains.

油漆结束

Doors should be sealed with a good quality bare wood primer followed by two top coats of a solvent-base or acrylic enamel.

Fitting and Hanging

图1:Overhang

x≥1/2y

图1:其中x是所需悬垂的长度,y是从门底部到悬垂的距离的距离。

  1. 悬挂门时,避免潮湿的天气中的门或框架的充分清除。当门安装在完全干燥的条件下时,允许大约3/16“间隙进行肿胀。JAMB必须是铅笔钳。
  2. Do not cut doors down in height by more than 2" (1-1/2" maximum from bottom, or 1" on doors with UltraBlock technology, 1/2" maximum from top). Care should be taken in cutting doors down in width (no more than 1/8" each side) to avoid exposing engineered components. Use a sharp fine-tooth saw for trimming ends of doors.
  3. Caution must be used to avoid impairing the strength of the door when fitting for locks. Allow at least 1" of wood back of mortise.
  4. 在门上使用三个铰链,高达7英尺7英尺7英寸的铰链。必须以直线设置铰链以防止失真。
  5. Jambs and stops must be set square and plumb.
  6. For best performance and to meet the standard Simpson warranty, any exterior door should be installed under an overhang or with sufficient protection. Adequate overhang depends on typical weather conditions of the area where the door is installed, but at the minimum means an overhang projecting a distance from the structure equal to one half the distance between the bottom of the door and the bottom of the overhang. (see Figure 1)
  7. 如果足够的悬垂不是可行的SIMPSOON,提供了一系列适用于此应用的产品,包括在户外Waterbarrier技术和楠塔基特的十年有限保修时为五年有限保修®Collection doors.
  8. 不要使用深色污渍或油漆s on exterior doors.
  9. Immediately after cutting and fitting (before hanging), seal all cut surfaces and ends of door with an effective quality sealer. See exterior and interior finishing recommendation for complete instructions.
  10. Prior to exterior exposure, doors must be finished with complete finish system.
  11. 最大限度地减少热量损失并节省能源,使用天气剥离。

黑板面板门护理和整理

Breaking in a new chalkboard door:

  1. 在开始“破碎”过程之前,去除表面膜。
  2. 每日用冷水洗净一周。
  3. 一次只洗一个小部分,立即用无绒布摩擦干燥。
  4. 重复直到门的整个表面已被洗涤。
  5. After washing, hold a stick of chalk flat on the board and cover the entire surface.
  6. Erase evenly. The chalkboard is now ready to use.

维护提示:

  1. 经常清洁橡皮擦。
  2. Use white chalk rather than yellow or colored chalk, as the pigments can make them more difficult to erase.
  3. Wash the chalkboard weekly if necessary.
  4. 寻找高级粉笔(95%粉笔,粘合剂5%粘合剂),因为较差的粉笔可能会使黑板永久标记。

树脂面板门护理和处理

Handling

所有带树脂面板的门都标配了一个保护膜,直到门面完成完成,门完全安装在最终位置。要拆下保护膜,从角落边缘朝向面板的中心剥离。保护膜应容易地从面板中拉动。

Cleaning and Maintenance

  1. 使用温水,轻度肥皂或洗涤剂,以及软海绵,布或麂皮清洁树脂面板。也可以使用树脂清洁剂,例如Novus或凝胶光泽。
  2. An anti-static guard may be used to minimize accumulation of dust on the panel surface.
  3. Do notuse glass cleaning products (such as Windex), acetone, gasoline, benzene, lacquer thinner, chlorinated solvents, gritty abrasive scouring compounds, or alkaline cleaners to clean the resin panel as damage to the insert will occur.
  4. Do not使用刮刀,刮刀或可划伤面板表面的合成抹布。
  5. 绝不scrub the resin. Gently wipe surface with a soft, scratch-free cloth.

Handling

  1. Do not walk on any door units. Some units contain glass.
  2. 避免彼此拖动门,让门清洁。
  3. Store flat on a level surface in a dry, well ventilated building.
  4. 门应在悬挂前调节到平均普遍存在的相对湿度。
  5. Doors should not be subjected to extreme or rapid changes in heat or humidity. Avoid sudden changes such as forced heat to dry out a building.
  6. If the doors are to be stored on the job site, all surfaces including ends and edges must be sealed with an effective quality oil-base sealer in order to prevent undue moisture absorption.

Maintenance

您的辛普森门已被手工制作到持续年份。但是,就像任何精品家具一样,它的饰面需要一些简单,定期的维护,以保持它看起来很棒,并为元素提供适当的保护。定期完成维护也是每个辛普森门内包含的保修。

Here are some signs to watch for. They indicate that it's time for some simple, easy-to-perform maintenance:

  • Hairline cracks in the top coat of finish.
  • Changes in the color of the finish.
  • 表面纹理的变化,例如剥落或缩放。
  • Dullness or chalkiness in the finish.

如果您居住在恶劣的气候或您的入场,从南方或西方曝光地区收到大量的阳光,您将想经常检查您的门。根据条件,您可能还需要更频繁地保持门面。

重要的是要注意,木材具有固有的动态品质。随着时间的推移,可能出现的小表面“瑕疵”,门可能会在气候变化“呼吸”时略微缩小或膨胀。这些特性是完全正常的,反映了木门的自然老化过程,它们不应被视为缺陷。为了最大限度地减少这些事件,请使用正确的饰面和充分的悬垂保护您的门。
