Rockwood Custom Capabilities
Many Rockwood products are able to be customized to fit the needs of your building. Rockwood’s capabilities include metal forming, machining, and finishing. We use state of the art equipment to accomplish efficient manufacturing of production lots from as small as one piece to as large as 10,000 pieces per run.
Whether it’s a modification of a standard product or a completely unique design, we will quote your design and offer suggestions for best mounting applications. We take special pride in our custom products. For more information, please contact our sales staff.
Custom Machining - Precision fabrication and effective design manufacturing are made possible by computer controlled machining techniques like water jet cutting and milling.
Corporate Identity - Get your company’s name or logo engraved on Rockwood door pulls for a personal touch.
Custom Casting - Castings provide a unique surface texture to your door pulls, which has the ability to make a positive first impression on anyone who enters your building.
Custom Bending - Select from a variety of bend radiuses for any type of door pull material.
Custom Materials - Rockwood offers door pulls in leather, wood, and more in any custom color.
Rockwood Custom Finishing
Rockwood can also make completely custom designs and finishes to ensure that your door pull perfectly matches your desired interior aesthetic.
Powder Coating: With customized powder coating, you can give your hardware a splash of color to make it stand out.
Electroplating: Electric current is used in this classic method of architectural finishing to deposit a thin metal layer over materials like brass, bronze, or stainless steel.
Types of Finishing
Polished Brass - Although polished brass has a lovely sheen, it typically does not hold up well outside. On most door pulls and push bars, we use a baked-on clear powder coat that is incredibly durable.
Stainless Steel - One of the most resilient materials used in construction is stainless steel, although there are many varieties with various qualities and levels of corrosion resistance. Our stainless steel holds up very well in the vast majority of indoor situations and many outdoor environments. The optimum maintenance involves routine water washing.
Our stainless steel finishes come with the option to be made of alloy 316 stainless steel, which has significantly stronger corrosion resistance than the conventional stainless steels typically used in door hardware since it contains molybdenum and additional nickel. Use of this finish is best in tough environmental conditions seen in urban, industrial, and coastal settings.
Heat-resistant - A coating that is heat resistant is required for exterior hot, sunny areas. We strongly suggest the white powder coat finish (WPC). This tough outer coating is significantly cooler to the touch than stainless steel or other finishes and reflects a large amount of heat rays.
Anti-microbial Protection - The perfect finish for hospitals, schools, labs, assisted living institutions, public restrooms, and other places where bacterial growth needs to be controlled to meet stringent requirements of cleanliness is MicroShield® (US32DMS).
Sustainability of Rockwood Products
When you select a Rockwood stainless steel door pull for your LEED certified building project, you are using a product that is made from 75% post industrial waste and is 100% recyclable.
These pulls can also usually be refinished to their original appearance any time in the life of the building, eliminating the need for replacement when a renovation is conducted.
Many of Rockwood’s products hold heath and environmental declarations.
Health Product Declaration
The Health Product Declaration (HPD) initiative encourages the transparency of providing customers with the material ingredients that are in building products in an attempt to create a more open atmosphere in sustainable building construction.
Building efficiency and general health are becoming more important as green building requirements develop, and HPDs aim to provide a crucial step in planning the development of healthier buildings.
Environmental Product Declaration
An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD®) reports the environmental data of products, based on their life cycle assessment (LCA).
Keeping in accordance with the international standard ISO 14025 (Type III Environmental Declarations), an EPD® compares products and services according to their impact on the environment, giving consumers transparency about the items. An EPD® can also show how a product or service has become more environmentally friendly over time.
