Materials and Finishes
FSB works with four basic metal types which include Stainless Steel and Bronze used in our Premium Series of door furniture, Aluminum used with our Elements Series, and Brass used with the Transitions Series. We have championed the benefits of each to meet both physical application needs and design criteria since our inceptions over 130 years ago.
As users have learned not all materials are created equal. Metals are categorized by grade. For example, 304 stainless steel purchased from one mill can be far superior from 304 purchased from another as is true with aluminum, brass, and bronze. Be assured, FSB only uses metals that meet our exacting standards which allow our finishes to last the test of time.
