Aiming to put an end to pitting hardware callbacks

Callbacks to replace pitted or failing hardware are one of the biggest frustrations for installers, according to Trojan, which said the problem has been abated for its customers with its stainless steel hardware.

Steve Hall, general manager of Trojan, said: “The standard industry test for hardware corrosion is 240 hours or 480 hours salt spray testing. Our stainless steel hardware can achieve over 1,000 hours with no problem. In fact, we’re so confident in the range’s ability to withstand corrosion that every item is covered with a 25-year anti-corrosion guarantee as standard.”

Zinc or aluminium-based plated or painted products will corrode sooner or later as a result of salt or acid erosion attack especially if the surface coating is damaged, the company said.

Trojan’s stainless steel door furniture range consists of TS007 accredited 2-Star security handles, TS008 compliant letterplates, door accessories including door knockers and door numerals, and a contemporary furniture range including long door pull handles, centre door knobs and oval or circular door escutcheons. All are available in a full range of finishes including polished, brushed, gold (PVD), satin, white and black.
