Hung Window Hardware Finishes
The finishes below area available for the hardware shown on this page. Parrett also offers custom plating solutions and other hardware finishes, contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Polished Lacquered Brass (PB) - The standard finish for most items.
Polished Unlacquered Brass (PBNL) - This finish, though bright when new, will tarnish quickly through use and exposure, to a natural antique finish.
Oil Rubbed Bronze (OB) - A rich, deep, brown finish, produced by oxidation of the brass metal, and protected by a matte lacquer. Over time the areas of the hardware exposed to wear will become lighter and more polished by use, resulting in the appearance of antique bronze.
Satin Nickel (SN) - This finish is produced by lightly polishing a dull nickel plating with a fine abrasive brush. The result is a clean, functional look, not unlike pewter or brushed stainless steel.
Polished Nickel (PN) - This is a smooth, rich, and highly polished finish, often found on high quality bathroom fixtures. Polished nickel has a warmer appearance when compared to chrome plating.
