Specifications and Procedures
Due to the nature of many of the products in the product line, sizes may vary to a small degree. Coastal Bronze reserves the right to discontinue or change any product, design, function, finish or price without prior notice.
Strength of Bronze
Most bronze used in casting hardware today is composed of 85% copper and the rest in various other metals. The strength of steel is two to three time stronger then copper. This is important to note when using bronze to support heavy doors or gates.
A Note about Finishes
Bronze ages gracefully and may change in appearance due to varying environmental conditions. Bronze patina finishes will develop a wear highlight with frequency of use. When bronze is exposed to air it will tarnish quickly and turn brown. Bronze exposed to exterior elements and conditions will turn green.
This discoloration is referred to as patina. This patina process starts immediately upon installation. None of these conditions are considered defects, but part of the natural beauty of aged bronze.
We strive to match finishes within a given order, but parts ordered at a later date may not match the original pieces. They should however, age to match the original pieces.
