Custom Finishes 2021-10-14T12:51:30+00:00

Looking for a custom finish for your stainless steel? You’re in the right place! 

We’re experts in our field, and whilst we can appreciate the beauty of raw stainless steel, we know that sometimes a project calls for something a little bit different. So, for the times where you want the durability of stainless steel, but to inject a little colour, consider custom finishing. 

We can offer two different types of coating – Polyester Powder Coating or PVD depending on the overall look you hope to achieve. Both of these finishes are detailed below.

PVD Finishes

PVD (or Physical Vapour Deposition) is a specialist finishing process that takes place in a vacuum chamber, using high temperature gas. Produced by one of our local partners (Hauck Heat Treatment),  PVD Coatings are an innovation in the creation of coloured stainless steel. It makes the surface even harder and more durable  – so it is close to perfection for hardware. Colour coating of steel using PVD achieves an excellent result.

We can provide PVD coating of stainless steel for the following items:

  • Pull handles
  • Lever door handles
  • Knobs
  • Cabinet Handles
  • Cabinet Pulls
  • Bathroom Fittings
