Luxury metal showcases finishes
Our customised and bespoke specialist metal finishing service allows designers scope for endless possibilities with luxury showcases design.
The types of metals we used mostly are aluminium, stainless steel and brass, From these base metals we are able to create a wide variety of finishes. Our popular standard finishes are 'Antique Bronze' and 'Champagne Gold' , but there are plenty more.
PVD coating finishes
PVD coating is a relatively new finish that we offer. There are a number of interesting colours offered in polished (mirror) and brushed (hairline) options. The stainless steel is polished and then coated. This allows for a finish that resembles brass and combines the strength of steel. This has a practical application for creating a weight bearing frame or leg, which brass would not allow.
Antiqued metal finishes
To make the antiqued finish the metal is brushed and then painted. We can achieve a very light or very dark colour using this method. We can also oxidise the brass to give a very matt tarnished look which works particularly well on a more intricate silhouette.
Powder coating finishes
We also offer a powder-coating finish. This is applied to cleaned steel or aluminium frames and offers a durable finish that can be gloss or matt. We have a variety of standard powder-coat finishes including white, black, bronze, taupe, silver and gun metal.
