A note about Brass

Brass: If brass is specified, then be assured that we only use pure, solid brass. Not plated or hollow. The antiqued (only for fenders under 2m wide) and bronze finishes are applied by hand to the brass in layers, so take a little longer to make and therefore cost more. The polished brass is unlacquered so will dull down over time if left alone. We can lacquer if required.

Antiquing: Having satin polished the fender parts professionally, we then cold dip the brass over a long period of time and then layer it down until the correct tone is achieved. This allows the chemical to sink into the brass. This process is an art as much as it is scientific. There is a quick, cheap method which is to simply ‘paint’ on the chemical  - this then has to be lacquered though as it fades, and this can make the brass look patchy and plastic. Although it is very cheap and quick, in our opinion it is inferior and below our standards of craftsmanship that we offer.

A note about Stainless Steel

The steel and gunmetal are made from pure stainless steel so will never rust.

A note about our painted finishes

Our painted fenders are made from mild steel. The powder coating is applied electro-statically and then cured under heat to provide a very hard wearing finish. They are also very competetive in price as they are made from mild steel, as opposed to stainless steel. We can paint fenders in any RAL colour if required. (Extra cost).

Timber
Oak/Mahogany/other timber

A note about using timber in a fender.

We can make the fender base profile from oak/mahogany or whatever wood you wish. The rest of the fender would be made from metal, chosen from the selection along with the finish. We can make a bench style fender with wooden uprights if requested. The curved bench style has to have the chamfered base. We can ebonise/paint/lacquer/oil or stain the wood if required.
