SGD – Sydney Garage Doors PTY LTD



Garage door kits are supplied with hardware and tracks in purposeful condition that require care and attention. To keep all hardware and tracks in working condition refer to the following for instructions:

1. To lubricate all moving parts SGD recommend using CRC 5-56 or WD40 spray and then
follow the application guidelines on the product.

2. To clean all tracks we recommend using a dry light brush to remove all corrosive debris i.e. heavy industrial dust or salt from open water sources.

3. SGD products that are used more frequently i.e. constantly opened and closed, should be maintained more regularly.

Recommended timeframe for standard use is once every 12 months, and for more frequent users this should be every 6 months.

Service requirements
Domestic/residential use - servicing every 12 months is required.
Commercial use - servicing every 6 months is required.
High usage you must service every 3-6 months.
