Coastal Bronze warrants all locking goods, including locks, latches and deadbolts, to be free of defects in material and craftsmanship for 1 year from the original invoice date. In areas of high humidity or proximity to ocean, warranty is 6 months. Coastal Bronze adds a patina to all products to simulate aged bronze.

Hardware Tips

About This Bronze Hardware

This bronze hardware contains 90% copper and 10% tin. When it first leaves the mold, the hardware is copper-penny colored. Next, the pieces are patina’d dark bronze. Finally, the hardware has an exterior-grade dark bronze-colored wax applied to it that adds to its weather- and wear-resistance. Bronze ages gracefully and may change in appearance due to varying environmental conditions. The wax helps maintain the color of the hardware for the long term under most conditions. On items like gate latches and door handles where your hand comes in contact with the material regularly: we’ve seen over time that the oils on your skin will slowly wear down the wax where the skin contacts the metal. On all other items where skin doesn’t come in contact with the hardware, you should see dark bronze coloration for the long term.

How does this hardware hold up to the elements?

When submitted to a salt-water chamber test, this hardware began to patina at the 16-hour-mark, versus 10-hours for other name-brand, high end bronze products. A client recently wrote that this hardware installed on an waterfront boathouse two years ago looks slightly darker and shinier than the original, but looks otherwise exceptional.

The bottom line is: this hardware is the perfect choice for oceanfront, waterfront, and coastal installations.

A gate stop is needed on all gates. The stops that we have are attached to the gate and catch on the post when the gate is pushed closed. The stop maintains the proper alignment so that the latch can latch, but won’t be damaged if the gate is slammed.

Watch our installation video to get a better idea of the gate stop's usage.
