Our gangways are produced from marine grade materials that reduce the need of cleaning and maintenance.
Anyway, some little precautions will facilitate the best conservation. Here, we give you some advices to get the best from your gangway.
Every time you return to harbour
Wash it down with abundant fresh water and dry it with a soft cloth, having attention for the steel parts. lf left drying without being wiped down, the stainless steel can be subject to corrosion. Avoid cleaning with materials that may scratch the stainless steel surface and cause corrosion.
Wash the gangway with a neutral biodegradable detergent: the gangway is subject to acidic and greasy deposits being exposed to engine exhaust fumes.
At the beginning of winter
Treat the wood of the gangway with a suitable protective product.
At every start of the season
Clean the extending section guides and the hinges and lubricate them with a suitable spray product.
Check the batteries in your remote control are in good condition.
At least once per year
