Outdoor Applications (X3-R)
Because most components of the X3 are made of anodized aluminum they are already prepared for outdoor use.
Any components that are not made of aluminum are zinc plated.
If the X3 is to be used outdoors or in an extreme environment (e.g. near swimming pools, hot tubs, chemicals, etc.) it is necessary to use stainless steel fasteners and support towers (if required, see Attachment Methods).
An Vinyl Platform Cover can be purchased (optional) to assist in protection in severe weather areas.
Quaterly maintenance is strongly recommended for outdoor units.
