Stonebridge Announce A New Armor Coat Finish

The new Stonebridge Armor-Coat™ finish has been certified as the best in the industry.

At Stonebridge, we are enhancing our high-quality range of handforged architectural ironmongery with the launch of two new finishes that have been certified as the best in the industry.

The new Armor-Coat™ finish has been independently tested and certified to BS EN 1670:2007 Grade 5 to achieve the highest possible rating. The test requires products to be exposed to a neutral salt spray under controlled laboratory conditions for 480 hours and the results showed ‘exceptionally high corrosion resistance and suited to service indoors and outdoors in exceptionally severe conditions where long-term protection is required.’

As well as providing outstanding protection from corrosion, the Armor-Coat™ finish is also highly UV rated and resistant, to protect from fading in sunlight or harsh weather.

“We’re really pleased that the test results have reinforced the confidence that we already had in the Armor-Coat™ finishes,” says Ian Smith, Design & Brand Manager at DJH Group, owners of the Stonebridge brand.

“To achieve 480 hours in a salt spray test is a huge achievement. No other product on the market has achieved anything close to this standard under independent testing. The Armor-Coat™ showed no notable signs of corrosion after 480 hours. These results reinforce our ‘fit and forget’ philosophy, allowing joiners to install our produsts with confidence”, continued Ian.

The Stonebridge range is engineered and forged to provide products which are precise and consistent in size – making the range a pleasure to install. Combined with a stunning range of unique designs and a hardwearing finish – Stonebridge products are a durable choice for homes.
