THE FINISHES

 

Bankston's Antique Brass finish provides endless opportunity; whether trying to replicate the appearance of old brass that has aged in place, or achieving the perfect colour contrast in the most contemporary of settings.

This finish is subject to a hand-aging process, which provides each piece with its own character. A living finish, Antique Brass is designed to wear and age naturally over time, enhancing the organic character of the product.

Magnificently versatile, this finish can be used to accentuate both historical and contemporary design.

 

Antique Copper

A unique finish that successfully replicates the nuances of the natural aging process.

Each product in the Antique Copper finish is made from brass and plated in copper; an antiquing and oxidizing process is then applied and rubbed back by hand.

This process lightens the colour, bringing out grey-blue hues and revealing copper highlighting to reflect natural wear. This finish will organically wear and is a true living finish that looks exceptional at all stages of its life.


The finish to use when the historical details of your project command respect.

 

Satin Brass

Bankston's chic Satin Brass finish combines the beauty of Polished Brass with the modernity of Satin Chrome. Elegant and engaging, this finish provides the perfect contrast piece to a bold or moody colour palette.

To achieve this durable finish, a forged brass product is lightly linished on a polishing wheel before a clear satin lacquer is applied to protect the surface and maintain the finished appearance.

The ultimate in urban luxury, our Satin Brass hardware can be effortlessly paired with your other kitchen and bathroom fittings.

 

Chrome Plated

For those that love shiny finishes, we apply our polished, mirror-like chrome plated finishes to our extensive range of brass based products.

Chrome plating is a very durable finish and only requires regular cleaning with a soft dry cloth to maintain its brightness.

 

Polished Brass

To achieve our polished brass finish, forged brass is polished at high speed to achieve a mirror finish which is then protected by applying a clear lacquer.

Bankston's polished brass is a living, organic finish and the initial polished appearance of brass will mature over time to develop a patina and unique character reminiscent of old brassware.

A truly classic finish that is highly versatile and suitable to both period and modern applications.

 

 

Matt Black

The definition of a modern classic, Matt Black has quickly become an integral element of many interior palettes, with no sign of its popularity waning.

Whether trying to achieve a bold colour contrast or impart a touch of luxury, Matt Black has the ability to instantly transform a space. Achieved through a powder coating or oxidised by hand; making this finish both durable and stunning.


Adaptable to minimalistic, industrial, modern and period restoration; Matt Black will add depth and intensity to your project.

 

Satin Chrome

Satin Chrome imparts a sense of sophistication and quality to a space. This finish is the more subtle cousin of Polished Chrome and perfect for a pared back palette.

A gentle brushed appearance with cool hues, Satin Chrome introduces an element of texture without being overbearing. T

o achieve this durable finish, a nickel-plated brass product is linished before being plated with satin chromium, creating an extremely hard wearing and stable finish.

Satin Chrome adds a modern, functional touch and complements stainless steel hardware and appliances.

 

Rumbled Nickel

With similar qualities to traditional English pewter, our Rumbled Nickel finish suits period restorations and character homes, while adding depth and integrity to contemporary projects.

This finish is named after the 'rumbling' sound produced when forged brass products are nickel plated and oxidised before being placed together with small stones in a vibrating barrel. As the stones strike the surface of the piece, the oxidisation is chipped away to lighten the product and reveal glimpses of the warm nickel plating underneath.

The result is a beautifully worn, organic and timeless product. Full of character, this finish will add a sense of refinement and maturity to your project.

 

Polished Nickel

Warmer than Polished Chrome, but with the same level of luxuriousness and refinement, Polished Nickel is an excellent choice for timeless designs such as the Hamptons look.

To achieve this finish, forged brass is nickel-plated then polished at high speed to achieve a mirror-like surface. Polished Nickel can be left to develop a characterful patina overtime, or it can be occasionally polished to maintain its original appearance.

The warm glow and timeless qualities of Polished Nickel set it apart from other finishes.

 

Satin Nickel

Soft to the touch and exhibiting warm hues, our Satin Nickel is a truly unique and distinctive finish.

To achieve this finish, nickel-plated forged brass is very lightly linished, before being plated with satin nickel.

The result is a warm, sensual finish that invites touch. While classically understated, your architectural hardware will invite comment and attention as a result of its unique qualities.

Satin Nickel can be left to develop a characterful patina overtime, or it can be occasionally polished to maintain its original appearance.

Warm hues, soft to the touch and highly versatile, this finish has limitless applications.

Cleaning Your Bankston

Caring for your Bankston product is simple and only requires a damp cloth with diluted, mild detergent to remove stains or fingerprints. For stubborn marks, a non-abrasive cleaning product can be used, but please do so sparingly.

In coastal areas, it is recommended to clean and dry your hardware regularly to remove salt spray which can dramatically increase the tarnishing and aging process. We suggest incorporating this into your regular cleaning routine.

Do not allow your Bankston product, particularly those that are finished with a lacquer, to come into contact with paint thinners or masking tape which may compromise the finish. We recommend always removing your door furniture prior to painting or undertaking maintenance activities to avoid damaging the finish or chipping powder coated products.

Never use solvents, scourers or abrasive cleaning products on your hardware. Doing so will compromise the finish of your Bankston product.
