Wouldn’t you like black antique hardware, which doesn’t rust and ruin your door?

28th August 2019

DuraTique - Antique Hardware That LastsBlack antique door hardware - so many homeowners today still want this traditional style of hardware because it suits the design and style of their property. But with this traditional antique hardware comes traditional issues – namely – it’s highly likely to rust quickly and severely and fail to operate properly within months of installation.

That means expensive visits back to site for you to replace poor performing iron hardware – wasting valuable time and money. So problematic is it, that many manufacturers are reluctant to fit this type of hardware in the first place as they know how quickly it is likely to fail.

And for those manufacturers that do fit it, not only is the customer likely to be extremely disappointed as it spoils the look and performance of their doors, but they run the risk of it damaging their reputation. We’ve even heard of some companies supplying 2 sets of handles with their doors, as they know the fitted handle will fail!
