Care & Maintenance for REGISTA

Glides

Our glides are constructed of high-quality materials including nylon, rubber, thermoplastic polyurethane, felt, or stainless steel. Glides can be fixed, adjustable or even self-leveling. Over time, the glides wear down and should be inspected frequently. If not, worn glides can damage the furniture and flooring. Wear rates vary on flooring type and texture. When possible, lift furniture (rather than dragging) to move it.

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Inspect frequently
  • Replace worn glides as needed
  • Replacement glides are available through your sales specialist

Powder Coated Metals

JANUScoat™ is JANUS et Cie’s proprietary powder coat finish. In this process, we apply a primer powder coating on the metal and follow it with a top coat of powder that contains our custom JANUS colors.

Powder coated finishes can be applied to a variety of metals in a process that creates a durable, protective finish without using harmful solvents. Polymer granules, which may contain polyester, polyester-epoxy, or fusion-bonded epoxy and acrylics, are electrostatically applied and baked to form a hard, protective coating creating a continuous, seamless finish.

Like any fine-painted surface, such as an automobile, routine washing and rinsing will help keep your painted furniture looking new. We recommend you provide extra protection with a regular application of a reputable automobile wax, which will actively repel the accumulation of moisture and water spots and minimize possible staining. Water spotting on the finish is usually a result of mineral and salt deposits in the water or can also be a result of pollutants in rainwater. Wax will promote “beading” of the water (i.e. run off the surface) without allowing surface dirt to dry on the finish. An added benefit of waxing your furniture is it is easier to clean when it becomes dirty. Water spotting may be more pronounced on darker frame colors, and in particular, coastal areas.

JANUScoat and powder coated finishes, while incredibly durable, may be chipped or damaged with improper handling. JANUS et Cie offers touch up paint which will blend with the original finish. For more information or to order touch up paint, please contact your sales specialist. Touch up paint may not perform with the same characteristics as the original powder finish. If not touched up, the effect on the exposed unprotected surface will vary depending on the underlying metal. It is critical to touch up as soon as possible.

WHY JANUScoat?

  • ALUMINUM: Exposed metal can oxidize over time.
  • STAINLESS STEEL: Exposed stainless steel can start to accumulate fly rust.
  • CAST OR PLATE STEEL: Exposed steel will start to rust in most environments.

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Rinse with a hose to remove salt and/or larger dirt and debris accumulation.
  • Wash with mild, pH-neutral soap such as Dawn® and clean water using a non-abrasive cloth or sponge.
  • We also recommend any premium automotive cleaning products, such as Meguiar’s® Gold Class™ Car Wash and Shampoo (www.meguiars.com). This premium car wash contains ingredients that will protect and enhance the finish.
  • Rinse and dry with a clean soft cloth to prevent water spots.

PERIODIC CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Apply an automotive wax to the finish per manufacturer’s instructions. This can vary in the number of times per year depending on the usage and environment of the location. Please see your sales specialist for details.
  • Do not use abrasive or aggressive solvent products on aluminum, such as acetone or scouring powder.

Ropes & Straps

Our synthetic ropes and straps are made of olefin, polyolefin, polypropylene or polyester materials engineered using high-quality pigment with excellent UV, stain and mold resistance. These ropes have the same warm look and soft texture as high-end fabrics. They are environmentally friendly, durable and suitable for outdoor locations.

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Frequent vacuuming or light dusting is recommended
  • Dust can be wiped down with a damp clean cloth or rinsed with clean water
  • Wash with mild, pH-neutral soap such as Dawn® and clean water or use Faron Cleaner (JeC Item #799-90-100-00-00). If using Faron, please follow directions on bottle.
  • Let air dry
  • Do not scrub excessively, apply heat or use any sharp objects to clean

EXTENSIVE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Blot stains with a sponge, working inward from the outside of the stain
  • Wash with mild, pH-neutral soap such as Dawn® and clean water or use Faron Cleaner (JeC Item #799-90-100-00-00). If using Faron, please follow directions on bottle.
  • Rinse with clean water and air dry

Stainless Steel (Metal)

Stainless steel is an alloy of low carbon steel and chromium, which is inherently anti-corrosive and will not lose this resistance if scratched. In most environments, oxidation may occur, and in the early stages it is non-corrosive and easy to wipe away. This is referred to as surface rust or “fly rust.” If left unchecked, this corrosion may become irreversible over time. Regular maintenance is important, especially in marine and coastal environments.

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • A general cleaning with mild, pH-neutral soap such as Dawn® and clean water using a non-abrasive cloth or sponge, being sure to thoroughly dry.
  • Cleaning any metal surfaces with abrasives, scouring powder or hard bristle brushes is not recommended.

PERIODIC CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • To treat stubborn dirt or surface rust (also known as “fly rust”), use a good stainless steel cleaner (options available at most hardware stores) and follow the manufacturer’s directions.
  • We offer McMaster® Stainless Steel Wipes (JeC Item #799-30-200-00-00), which clean and offer added protection against rust buildup. Follow instructions on packaging.

EXTENSIVE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • For heavy cleaning, we recommend using a high quality stainless steel cleaner and adhering to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Textiles

JANUS et Cie Textiles speak to our natural love of color, pattern, structure and texture—in the world, in the home and in our wardrobes. Our extensive collection of captivating textiles is designed to allow you to dress furniture and environments with the same variety and personality that you dress yourself! More than 200 fabrics comprise our collection including sumptuous Weatherskin® exterior faux leather. Our outdoor fabrics, ranging from brights to stripes and patterns to solids, are woven from solution dyed acrylic, polyolefin and polypropylene for a surface that resists microbes, soil, abrasion and fading from UV light. The result is perfect for hospitals, hotels, office spaces, and private residences. Our deep stock of textiles allows you to create a distinct and personal, elegant and vibrant interior or exterior setting. JANUS et Cie fabrics do not promote mildew growth; however, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric. JANUS et Cie fabrics are heat sensitive and will shrink when subjected to excessive heat. Never steam press or machine dry these fabrics.

SOLUTION DYED POLYPROPYLENE FABRIC

JANUS et Cie’s polypropylene fabric is 100% recyclable and produced from non-toxic and hypoallergenic materials, as well as being mold and stain resistant. Polypropylene fabrics should not be ironed or cleaned with bleach.

ROUTINE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Vacuum to remove loose dirt.
  • Prepare a cleaning solution of 2 ounces (1/4 cup) mild, pH-neutral soap such as Dawn® per 1 gallon of lukewarm clean water (less than 80°F/30°C), or Use Faron Cleaner (JeC Item #799-90-100-00-00). If using Faron, please follow directions on bottle.
  • Use a sponge to clean.
  • Apply a light mist of cleaning solution as noted above using a spray bottle.
  • Allow cleaning solution to soak into fabric.
  • Work the solution into the stain by blotting or lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge.

  • Repeat these steps until stain is removed.
  • Allow fabric to air dry.

PERIODIC CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • Repeated washings with liquid detergent may reduce the effectiveness of the soil-resistant and waterrepellent qualities, so it may be necessary to reapply a water-repellent finish, such as 303 Hi-Tech Fabric Guard (JeC Item #799-90-301-00-00), or a similar soil-resistant treatment. Always refer to directions from manufacturer.

EXTENSIVE CARE & MAINTENANCE

  • For more stubborn stains, polypropylene fabric can be machine washed with standard detergent and tumbled dry on low.
  • Polypropylene fabric can be dry cleaned as long as Tetrachloroethylene is not used.
