Eagle Maintenance

Care and Maintenance of Timber (Hardwood)

Preservation System at Manufacturing Stage
All Hardwood provided by Eagle is of the highest quality and stained and protected with Teknos products. Teknos produce a range of water based stain and timber protective products.


Warning: It is essential that ALL timber products be wiped down after any application of fertilisers onto the course. Nitrogen fertiliser can burn through the protective coating in
a matter of hours.


On Site Maintenance Procedure

The initial coating from the factory will last over two years - and the only maintenance required is to keep the sign clean.

At least once per year all coatings should be washed with mild detergent and water to remove any surface pollution.

Although the coating will last for two years minimum, all timber products should be checked annually for ‘damage’, wear and tear. If the coating gets damaged through impact (golf ball, golf club etc), it will accelerate the moisture ingress through the coating and subsequently cause possible delamination in and around that specific area.

A coating of Aquatop 2600 at this stage is advised and if a coating is applied annually the frames will continue performing through time.

Using a good quality synthetic brush, designed for use with acrylic paints, apply a coat of Aquatop 2600 in the appropriate shade/colour. Allow to dry for four hours, then apply a second coat. (Drying times may vary due to environmental conditions).

Indemnity
Eagle Promotions Ltd cannot be held responsible for any damage caused to the posts by outside influences such as fertiliser, vandalism, etc.

Maintenance of Old Timber Systems (Hardwood)

Once the top coat of any protection system wears away the primer coat will be exposed. When this breaks down the surface of the timber will oxidise and turn silver. As the timber oxidises the surface will look patchy and not very attractive. In time the surface will settle down and you will be left with a silver aged finish which is a natural look preferred by some.

If you want to bring an Old Timber System back the following procedure needs to be followed.

All surfaces need to be sanded down to the bare timber. Then a coat of Aquaprimer 2900 needs to be applied. This improves adhesion for the next two coats of Aquatop 2600.

Please see above for application technique. Aquatop needs to be applied annually from then on.

Aquaprimer and Aquatop products are available through Eagle in 1, 3 & 18/20 litre cans.



Care and Maintenance of Zinc Plates

Preservation System at Manufacturing Stage
Zinc plates are made from a chemically milled high grade Zinc substrate, after milling the plates are degreased, acid primed, painted and stoved, and finished with epoxy polyurethane protective coatings.

This preparation has proved to be an excellent outdoor product; however, as with all outdoor signage there is a degree of maintenance needed to keep the signs and plaques looking their best.

Procedure
To achieve this we recommend that two or three times a year the plates are cleaned thoroughly with a non abrasive cleaning agent, (soap and water with a soft brush is enough), and polished with any branded external wax polish containing silicon (almost all car polish is suitable).


Warning: It is essential that ALL zinc plates be wiped down after any application of fertilisers onto the course. Nitrogen fertiliser can burn through the protective coating in a matter of hours.


Graffiti
Graffiti can be removed by using a mild paint solvent and soft absorbent pad or cloth. If, when removing the grafitti the protective polyurethane/epoxy coating is damaged, you can easily coat the damaged area with an air drying coating available from most accredited paint suppliers or Eagle can supply the protective coating in small quantities to use on site.

Vandalism
Scratches and gouges to the painted areas can be repaired with small quantities or air drying colour coded paints that can also be supplied by Eagle and applied
on site.

Indemnity
Eagle Promotions Ltd cannot be held responsible for any damage caused to the posts by outside influences such as fertiliser, vandalism, etc.

Care and Maintenance of Bronze Plaques

Preservation of your Bronze Plaques
Natural Bronze will verdigris naturally through time. This verdigris is a natural coating which forms on the surface of the plaque and can be removed with a wire brush.

After wire brushing - get some wet and dry sandpaper and rub the surface of the plates. Then to protect the plaques use Brasso on the raised areas and a wax (Johnstones Furniture Wax or equivalent), on the background areas.

The alternative is to send the plaques back to our factory and we will clean and re-lacquer. The cost of this is £35 each plus pickup and re-delivery.


Warning: It is essential that ALL bronze plaques be cleaned after any application of fertilisers onto the course. Nitrogen fertiliser can burn through the protective coating in a matter of hours.


Indemnity
Eagle Promotions Ltd cannot be held responsible for damage caused to the plaques through fertiliser damage or vandalism etc.

Care and Maintenance of Aluminium Plates

Preservation System at Manufacturing Stage
Aluminium plates are made from a milled high grade Aluminium Sheet material, after milling the plates are degreased and primed. In some cases they are powder coated but most have a digital print applied to the front face.

This preparation has proved to be an excellent outdoor product; however, as with all outdoor signage there is a degree of maintenance needed to keep the signs and plaques looking their best.

Procedure
To achieve this we recommend that two or three times a year the plates are cleaned thoroughly with a non abrasive cleaning agent, (soap and water with a rag is enough), or any branded car paint cleaner containing silicon (almost all car cleaning agents are suitable).

Warning: Since some fertilisers do have harmful ingredients it is wise for the Aluminium plates to be wiped clean after any application of fertilisers onto the course.

Graffiti
Anti Graffiti protection can be applied to Aluminium plates at the manufacturing stage. Generally it is unlikely, due to the additional cost, that this protective film will have been added to Tee Plates.

Vandalism
Scratches and gouges and paint graffiti are not repairable. The best action is to call Eagle and ask for new digital print to be produced.

Indemnity
Eagle Promotions Ltd cannot be held responsible for any damage caused to the posts by outside influences such as fertiliser, vandalism, etc.
