properties. Treat only by rinsing with cold water. Do not use high pressure hoses or chemicals when cleaning.

cleaning, ensure water doesn’t enter any enclosed pelmet areas that may contain motors or parts as this may damage the
electronics. We don’t recommend the use of grease or other lubricants, as these will attract dust and grit, which increases
wear and tear. It is important that an awning or blind is let down to dry after wet weather and must not be rolled up or
stowed away when wet.
