The Miro® sliding door ‘D’ handle comes in two sizes. The smaller handle suits standard residential applications . The lock is separate from the handle and is operated by key or snib. A surface-mounted Miro® sliding door lock is also available where the handle and lock are combined and fitted to the face of the door stile. Miro® hardware is exclusive to APL and FIRST® aluminium joinery brands.
Miro hardware is generally powder coated and should be cleaned on a regular basis.
Atmospheric deposits, especially in coastal areas, can cause damage to the coating, and the surface should be cleaned at least three-monthly. In severe marine environments this should ideally be done monthly, especially for exterior-mounted hardware such as door handles.
Cleaning should be undertaken with a dilute solution of a mild detergent and warm water. A soft brush or rag should be used and there should be no use of abrasive aids. After cleaning, the coating should be wiped down with fresh water.
Miro hardware items with matt silter or gold plating are more vulnerable to marine exposure and should not be used in coastal environments.
Plated (soft) finishes are excluded from this warranty as deterioration is possible under some environmental conditions.
