HI-LOAD hinges are available in an extensive range of in-house applied finishes. Whether this involves dressing the substrate material in terms of Polishing, Brushing, Fine Satin or Burnishing or the application of surface processes which create a desired colour, tone or effect, our ability to either mimic desired material finishes with paints or lacquers or, for example, plate and patinate to create an artificially aged look is unrivalled; all of which we manufacture on either stainless or mild steel, the most suitable manufacturing material for hinges which endure.
In addition to the finishes below HI-LOAD hinges can also be plated in semi/precious metals including Gold and Silver. For details required finishes or for matching existing items please contact the sales office.
