THE NATURE OF GOLD FITTINGS
These products are manufactured by skilled craftsmen in the factory in England. Gold is a soft toned, shiny finish which is applied over Nickel. Gold electroplated products are made with real 24 carat gold and as such, this a soft finish which should be treated like a piece of fine jewellery. Traditionally chosen for more classical settings, Gold is now seen in contemporary interiors also.
IT IS IMPORTANT the plumber uses clean hands or gloves when installing your fittings and cleans off any plumbing product. Ask them to cover the fittings if they are installed before the room is finished, to avoid splatters from paint or commercial cleaning products and to avoid scratching from tools or building materials. NB: Paints continue to cure for a few days - vapours released during this process can sometimes cause metal finishes to discolour or tarnish. It is best to wait until no paint odour can be detected before installing plumbing trim pieces.
CARE & MAINTENANCE
Gold plated products contain real Gold in the coating and being the softest finish, should be treated as you would treat any piece of fine jewellery. They should only be cleaned with warm water and a mild pH-neutral liquid soap and dried with a chamois leather cloth. Gold plating can be scratched and discoloured by chemicals contained in some soaps and lotions and the finish on a frequently used fitting may over time wear on the handle where it is frequently touched.
