Door Hardware

bwalinskyOctober 2, 2012

First, thank you in advance for your help.

I am getting a new Provia Door installed, and getting the aged bronze hinges and magazine slot.

I wanted to get a Baldwin handleset and door knocker, but am worried about the finish matching the magazine slot and hinges. I am thinking the best Baldwin Colors to get are the Oil Rubbed Bronze or the Venetian Bronze to match the aged bronze on the door.

Does anyone have experience with these two Baldwin hardware colors and can comment on them? Are they both living finishes? How do they age over time?

Thanks!

I am not sure who makes Provia's hardware offerings, but I can tell you for a fact and I cannot remember the association that Balwin uses or the the other hardware finish association's name at the moment but Baldwin Hardware's finishes match no ones but Baldwin unfortunately. Get samples of both before purchasing anything.

Most of the oil rubbed bronzes are in that dark brown/black family.

The finishes are supposed to be lifetime (i.e. remain consistent), however, they will age some and that will depend in large part by exposure.

Most of the commercial hardware manufacturers have pretty solid finish warranties so you should be covered.

Post up some before and after shots.
