Roller UP Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

No, Applying automotive antifreeze to a powder-coated aluminum surface could potentially lead to discoloration or damage to the coating. Powder coating is a type of finish applied as a free-flowing, dry powder, which is typically cured under heat to form a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. However, it’s not impervious to all chemicals.

Automotive antifreeze, which usually contains ethylene glycol or propylene glycol, can be chemically aggressive. It’s designed to withstand the harsh environment of an engine’s cooling system, which means it can be quite corrosive to other materials. When it comes in contact with a powder-coated surface, several things might happen:

  1. Discoloration: The chemicals in antifreeze can react with the pigments or the binder in the powder coating, leading to color changes. This is more likely if the coating is exposed to antifreeze for an extended period.
  2. Chemical Reaction: There could be a chemical reaction between the antifreeze and the components of the powder coating, which might lead to the breakdown of the coating’s structure.
  3. Surface Damage: Prolonged exposure to antifreeze can potentially soften or degrade the powder coating, leading to a loss of gloss, cracking, or chipping.

It’s important to note that the actual outcome can vary depending on the specific formulation of both the antifreeze and the powder coating.

The curtain may be frozen to the sill or guide rails.

Try to gently tap the curtain in several different places with a mallet to free up the curtain.

Remove any Frost or snow attached to the surface of the curtain. Try to gently tap the curtain in several different places with a mallet to break any ice apart.

STOP operating before the bottom profile goes inside the panel box.  

Frost, snow or ice could be built up on the curtain resulting in the unit travelling past where you want it to stop at the top.  It will continue to roll upwards until the motor reaches its set limit. When this happens, it is not a failure of the motor, but instead, just a result of the curtain rolling up bigger and faster due to the frost, snow, or ice on the curtain.   If the curtain has completely gone into the panel box, call your local dealer for service before operating the unit again.
