There are many options out there when it comes to shower door hinges. You can choose anything from chrome to even nickel. But what about the best
option of brass? When it comes down to it, brass has the most benefits. They are as follows:
brass hinges are often the product of choice selected in marine applications because it is highly resistant to rust; much more so than galvanized steel or bronze. Pitting and crevice corrosion will likely develop over time on the surface of a stainless steel hinge The brass material is far superior to other options. Unlike traditional rusting with other metals, stainless steel corrosion tends to be somewhat random and highly localized. Pits (tiny holes) do
have the potential of penetrating substantial thickness, and over time, the pits can cause cracks and leaks.
This is why we make our hardware out of brass.
Hinges are not always placed inside doors or products where they are invisible to the user. Sometimes they are placed front and center where
everyone sees them, and in these cases, good aesthetics are essential to the manufacturer. Brass hinges are available in a huge variety of surface finishes. They offer an aesthetically pleasing appearance of high quality and it is easy to maintain a high level of shine. In addition, brass is easy to clean,
making it the first choice in hinges for pharmaceutical, food, kitchens and hospital use. Its durability and low maintenance make brass more expensive but it will last much longer than stainless steel and other metal options out there.
Low and High-Temperature Resistance
Brass hinges offer an easy solution for applications that require resistance to low or high temperatures.
