INNOVATIVE METAL FINISHES



Hammerton has pioneered innovative metal finishes that combine the rich color, depth, and character of traditional wet paints with the rugged durability and environmental compliance of powder coats. The result is an aesthetically pleasing light fixture that doesn’t compromise on longevity or weather resistance, even in the harshest climates. Our finishes are also VOC-free and can contribute toward LEED credits.

When selecting finishes it’s important to remember that finishes have reflective qualities, so the appearance of their color hue and saturation may be impacted by surfaces and light sources in their surrounding environment. Also, it may be a good idea to ask your Hammerton representative for a sample.

SAY “NO WAY” TO PLATED METAL FINISHES

Hammerton is one of a small handful of lighting manufacturers that offer environmentally friendly alternatives to plated finishes that don’t compromise on beauty and durability.

Metal plating, also called electroplating, is a highly toxic process that makes heavy use of dangerous chemicals and compounds like cyanide, chromium, and cadmium. As a result, most metal-plated light fixtures are manufactured in China and other countries that have significantly lower environmental quality standards.

Metallic Finishes

A popular choice for contemporary and transitional fixtures, Hammerton Studio’s metallic finishes combine lustrous color and beauty with the highest standard of durability. They’re ideally suited for all interior applications and are the best choice for interior fixtures in coastal locations or high humidity climates.

Our metallic finishes are environmentally compliant and can contribute toward LEED credits. They are covered by our Lifetime Limited Warranty and are guaranteed to last for as long as you own your fixture.

All Hammerton Studio fixtures can be ordered in up to eight metallic finishes.

Translucent Finishes

For interior fixtures, we offer premium patina finishes that require extensive hand polishing and special finish coats. The translucency of these beautiful patinas highlights the artisan-crafted beauty of the underlying steel.

Translucent finishes are recommended for dry-rated installations only. They are not recommended for use in coastal locations or high humidity climates where moisture content and salty air can accelerate finish corrosion, even on interior fixtures. They are covered by our Five-Year Limited Warranty when installed in dry-rated locations and 10+ miles from a coastline.

Translucent finishes are offered with our most popular collections at an upcharge.
