PVD stands for Physical Vapour Deposition. PVD door hardware refers to a specialized coating technique that involves the deposition of thin layers of metal alloys onto various surfaces, including architectural hardware like door handles, locks, hinges and other accessories. The PVD finish is ultra-thin but also extremely strong, which results in a top layer that is much harder than the substrate. This process enhances the durability, corrosion resistance, and overall aesthetics of the hardware, making it ideal for both residential and commercial applications.
• Unparalleled durability: due the extremely strong PVD top layer the door handles and other products are highly resistant to scratches, abrasions, and fading, ensuring that your door hardware maintains its original beauty for years to come. This means an increased quality of the products and a longer lifespan. Although, it must be said that no mechanisms, including lever handles are completely scratch-resistant.
• Weather, wind and corrosion Resistance: PVD-coated hardware is exceptionally resistant to corrosion, making it suitable for installation in various environments, including coastal areas with UV rays and salty air. Therefore a PVD coated door handle is also a good choice for front doors, garden doors or bathrooms.
• Easy Maintenance: The PVD finish protects the product against these influences and, although no product is completely maintenance-free, the coating ensures less maintenance. Together, this results in an extended life span.
• The PVD coating process is sustainable and eco-friendly: In addition to the durable quality of the end product, the PVD process is more environmentally friendly than alternative coating processes. No harmful gases or other substances are released and there is no waste. The process does not affect the recycling value of the stainless-steel base material. read more information about our approach at our sustainability page.
• Great designs: PVD coatings can be applied to a wide range of door hardware designs, allowing you to find the perfect style that complements your interior decor.
