Buying a door -
follow these steps to buy your Rubner Door
- how to keep your Rubner Doors in good working condition
Please do not ever use aggressive materials or scouring agents for cleaning the door’s surface. Moving parts should be serviced roughly every two years. The same applies to seals and silicone joints. To avoid warping of the door leaves, make sure that humidity within the building does not exceed 70 %. Detailed care instructions can be found in our Maintenance Manual.
Exterior doors are exposed to the elements and must be inspected thoroughly in spring and autumn. Ideally, some kind of structural protection should be implemented (projecting roof, set back from the façade plane). Minor damage can be repaired with original coating materials. You can purchase them from the authorised dealer or from Rubner Doors.
From time to time, wipe the dust off the door leaf and door frame with a moist cloth without adding any strong solvents or scouring agents. Once a year, you should use a pH-neutral cleaning agent bought from the authorised dealer. Please follow the manufacturer’s instructions when re-applying oil on a surface that is already oiled. Most care oils used are highly flammable or self-igniting. Therefore, all rags used for oil application must be burned immediately after use.
- these are the terms and conditions of the Rubner warranty
Products by Rubner Doors are covered under an extended warranty of one year beyond the legally mandated two-year warranty period: In total, your Rubner Doors are covered for a period of three years from the date of installation. We would like to draw the attention of our esteemed customers to the fact that the following surface changes explicitly do not constitute grounds for complaint: Metal surfaces can oxidise when exposed to moisture. Our suppliers will remove any pest infestation from old wood surfaces; however, a new infestation cannot be ruled out.
The following are regarded as wear material and are therefore not covered under the warranty:
- Door fittings (“hinges”)
- Door opener (“handle”)
- Glass insets (glass breakage caused by wind gusts, etc.)
- Damage to door surfaces after final acceptance of work
- Repair of fingerprint scanning systems
- Repair of the electric door opener / day-time release function
- this is how we can help you
New buildings can “settle”, shift and move in the millimetre range; it is only after one to two years that they no longer change. That is why a new door can sometimes scrape the floor. This is normal and can be easily fixed by the customer service staff. Tweaking is part of the service and is provided free of cost for the next eight years.
Which fixings can be replaced by myself?
Old locks, fittings and seals can be replaced without any problems, provided they are still available on the market. Retrofitting of fixings (e.g. power door locks or a fingerprint scanning system) is complex and a clarification should be sought in each individual case. If you wish to retrofit accessories, please contact our representative.
