The shelf is packed for normal transportation. Check that the packing is not broken. If the packing has been damaged during transportation, check the product and immediately inform the transportation company or the shop where you bought the product from about any damage that has occurred.
CHECK that all the parts mentioned in the packing list are included in the packing. Check also that the assembly instructions are included. Follow the instructions. By following the instructions you will ensure that no dangerous situations will arise during the assembly and also that the shelf won't break when used for what it was intended. It is good to check regularly that the fasteners used by the assembly are firmly in position.
Conditions of use
The shelf is made for storing things in a dry environment. Continuous humidity or a cold storing place can cause surface damage. Under such conditions the veneer can become loose and the surface will blister. Lights included in the shelf are approved for use in a dry room. Don't leave the shelf in direct sunlight because of the risk of colour changes. Don't put the shelf close to a heating device. Don't put the shelf too close to doors in your home - the doors could damage the shelf. If you put plants on your shelf, make sure that water doesn’t come on the shelf.
Use of the shelf
The carrying capacity of the shelf is intended for normal use. Glass shelves can’t carry heavy things. Don’t climb on the shelf. Don’t damage the surface of the shelf and don’t scratch it with sharp objects.
Painted, varnished and laminated surfaces can be cleaned with all normal water-soluble washing agents. After cleaning, the shelf must be wiped with a rag that has been rinsed in clean water and after that the shelf must be dried. Don’t leave stains of coffee, red wine or red candle-grease on the surface, because they can give off colour. If you need to remove difficult stains, i.e. printing ink, tea or grease stains, follow the instructions on the detergent. Avoid grinding detergents. The glass surface should be cleaned with a neutral detergent (look at the pH-value of the detergent) and a soft cloth. In order to remove stains or make the glass clearer you can use special detergent – just remember to follow the cleaning instructions on the detergent.
Items that can cause surface damage
Alkaline and acid detergents, scratching scouring powder as well as scrubbing sponges will cause damage to painted, varnished and laminated surfaces. Also continuous contact with water, hot water or hot objects on the surface will cause damage. Knocks and dents, scrubbing sponges and scouring powder as well as alkaline detergents will cause damage to the glass surface.
If it becomes necessary to move a shelf all the things on the shelf must be removed first. Loosen the elements from each other and move one part at a time. If there are glass elements in the shelf, make sure that the glass door can’t open – the door or the hinges can become damaged.
