Whatever finish you select care must be taken when cleaning your taps and showers. We reccomend that no harsh cleaners are used. Just warm soapy water with a microfibre cloth is sufficient.
A nickel base is applied to the raw brass as an undercoat and then the products are chrome plated for a tough long lasting finish.
A thicker coat of nickel is applied to the raw brass and then the nickel is mechanically brushed to achieve the appearance. Nickel has a natural very mild golden tinge.
Satin Black / White
The Satin black or white finish is achieved by using a strong powder coat applied to the raw brass which is then ‘baked on’ to give a tough and long lasting finish.
The polished brass finish is achieved by polishing and polishing the raw brass until a natural high lustre is achived. The finished product is unlaquered so it will gradually patina or age giving an antique brass appearance. This is a natural process that occurs over time. A metal polish will quickly restore your products to the polished finish.
The brushed brass finish is achieved by cleaning and basic polishing of the brass to remove any surface blemishes. The product is then mechanically brushed to give the finish. Again the product is unlaquered so natural ageing will take place. A metal polish can be used to restore the original brushed finish.
Brushed Stainless Steel
This is a genuine stainless steel product, not a stainless steel ‘look or effect’
Taps made from Stainless Steel are superb quality and are extreemley durable. Once the steel has been machined the components are mechanically brushed. Because the steel is naturally hard the brushing delivers a stunning finish. Stainelss steel products are ideal for use outside use. We can offer some of our products in a polished steel if required.
