Create matching design and material specifications across a range of products and fixtures
In addition to large PVD coloring chambers we have chambers with rigs in which we color small components, fixtures and architectural ironmongery.
We can color stainless steel:-
- Structural components such as spider brackets
- Architectural ironmongery, lever door handles, pull-handles and knobs
- Handrail brackets
- Balustrade components and clamps
- Light sockets and switches, back plates
For the fabrication or re-coloring of small components and architectural fixtures Double Stone Steel PVD colored stainless steel has the following benefits:-
- Replicates more expensive materials such as bronze, brass, rose gold and gold
- Non-tarnishing, does not develop a verdigris or patina, maintains original appearance
- Durable and scratch-resistant
- UV-light stable, does not fade
- Corrosion and weather-resistant making it suitable for exterior use
- Salt-water resistant making it suitable for exterior and marine environments and in areas where salt is used for street-cleaning
For manufacturers PVD coloring your stainless steel products can extend your range to include popular colors such as Bronze, Brass, Rose Gold, Black and Gunmetal.
For architects, product designers and interior designers you can create harmonious design specifications with seamlessly matching colors and finishes across your design scheme.
Color-matching across a suite of fixtures
It is rarely possible within a building or space to specify all fixtures and components in identical materials and finishes. Utilising Double Stone Steel PVD colored stainless steel enables total uniformity across all architectural ironmongery and fittings facilitating greater impact in the design.
A range of contemporary colors
Copper and Rose Gold, Bronze and Black tones are sought-after colors for kitchens and bathrooms as well as for door and window furniture. Where products are not available in these finishes but are manufactured in stainless steel these products can be colored post-manufacture to the hue required through the Double Stone Steel PVD coloring process.
Does not develop verdigris in wet areas
There is revival in Copper and Brass being specified for specifications in bathrooms however both materials develop verdigris when exposed to water. Double Stone Steel PVD colored stainless steel does not tarnish or grow a verdigris and maintains its original appearance. Thus it is easier to clean and maintain than bronze, copper or brass. It aslso does not pit as chrome finishes frequently do.
