Care and maintenance

Clays

  • Clean with a damp microfiber cloth using a neutral cleaning product.

  • DO NOT use fibers, as they may remove or scratch the burnished finish of the material.

  • DO NOT use oil-based products, polishes, solvents, abrasives, or corrosives, as they may deteriorate or permanently alter the material’s color.

  • Handle the material with care, as it is fragile and may break easily.

  • When performing any electrical installation, switch off the main electrical switch.
  • It is recommended that the installation be carried out by 2 people.
  • Handle the product and materials with care. They can break, chip, crack, or shatter easily.

  • Any abnormalities in the luminaire components, please contact the brand for additional support.
  • For wall-mounted luminaires, ensure correct leveling of the mounting bracket for proper alignment of the product.
