These Black Hinge Fronts are available in 2 finishes - Beeswax or Black. They are hot forged i.e. drawn to shape, not welded or fabricated. They are a rustic design with a penny round end. The Black Hinge Fronts are available in 24" or 18" and are purely decorative. They are to be used in conjunction with butt hinges and are usually fitted to framed doors.
Black Finish - this traditional satin black is baked in a high-temperature oven giving it an attractive, durable and corrosion-resistent finish. The finish is low maintenance when used internally, if used externally it will require more. In all cases we do recommend that it is wiped with a lightly oiled cloth periodically. This will help to remove surface dirt and restore it back to its original condition. This finish has been salt tested to 480 hours, which meets grade 5 British Standard.
Beeswax Finish - is the most authentic finish for steel. When the highly skilled blacksmiths have finished forging the colours left in the steel range from blue to deep red ochre. To preserve these beautiful colours and texture they are finished with just pure beeswax. You will need to apply a good quality natural beeswax periodically to maintain the subtle, matt richness of the metal and provide the protection it needs. For INTERNAL USE only. Some surface rust may occur with time, this can be treated with 00 grade wire wool followed by a light coating of beeswax.
Never use any form of metal cleaner or aerosol spray.
Sold in pairs and supplied with fixings. The screws supplied are hand finished, so please take care when fixing. Always use a pilot drill.
