To many, the finish on their hardware is as important as the design. We agree. And, this is the reason we spend so much time and effort to achieve beautiful, flawless finishes on our products.

FOUNDATION OF EXCELLENCE

The foundation of our finishes is forged brass. Forging creates a product free of defects, pits, holes and imperfections. Forging also provides excellent detail, something very important with our intricate designs. The cast brass process used by many manufacturers is cheaper, but it cannot match the beautiful results produced by our forging experts.

OUR FINISHES

Grandeur takes special care through meticulous steps to assure the highest degree of quality and consistency in all its finishes. Whether a Polished Brass lever or an Timeless Bronze knob, each piece of hardware that Grandeur produces is carefully inspected by skilled professionals.

Antique Pewter

ANTIQUE PEWTER (AP)

Slightly darker than satin nickel. It’s darkened, then relieved, to give a moderately-aged appearance. Finally, it receives several coats of satin lacquer to freeze its beauty in time.

Bright Chrome

BRIGHT CHROME (BC)

Bright Chrome has been one of the most-used finishes for brass hardware and plumbing. It sparkles, and doesn’t age or tarnish. This finish can’t be beat for durability.

POLISHED BRASS

POLISHED BRASS (PB)

The most traditional finish. Polished and gloss-lacquered. Constantly goes in and out of style, but’s never gone long. Makes almost everything look good, just like gold jewelry.

POLISHED NICKEL

POLISHED NICKEL (PN)

When applied to brass, nickel plating reveals a golden luster that is absent in standard chrome. Many people prefer it, favoring its warmth and subtlety.

SATIN NICKEL

SATIN NICKEL (SN)

One of the most popular finishes that works equally well on traditional or contemporary hardware. Yet, it’s neutral enough to coordinate with any door color. Brushed to obtain a soft luster, then satin-lacquered for protection.

TIMELESS BRONZE

TIMELESS BRONZE (TB)

The most practical bronze finish. We oxidize our brass, then hand-relieve the edges to reveal a hint of lighter bronze underneath – enhancing the fine details. Finally, we use satin-lacquer to provide a satisfying patina for the ages.

VINTAGE BRASS

VINTAGE BRASS (VB)

Vintage Brass is for anyone who likes the look of aged brass, but doesn’t want to wait for unlacquered brass to gather a patina. Polished and relieved, then satin-lacquered to lock-in its appearance. Beautiful, with a softer look than polished brass.

PVD - LIFETIME BRASS

PVD – LIFETIME BRASS (LB)

PVD stands for physical vapor deposition, a process used to create a very durable, corrosion and tarnish resistant finish. Similar in appearance to Polished Brass, PVD finish is commonly used for bathroom fixtures and entry hardware, which are exposed to frequent moisture and/or salt air.
