Bronze gate hardware on custom gates is a real theme we’re seeing these days, and November’s Photo Contest submission understood the assignment!
Take a peek with us from the outside of this sturdy arts-and-crafts-inspired gate with spindle detail.
On point with the sturdy and lasting theme is the Dark Bronze Contemporary Lever Gate Latch. Even the color blends in seamlessly with the wood. One very important feature to note in this image is the gate stop. Gate stops are included in all of our packages – and for good reason! You can read more about them in this blog post (and parts 2 and 3), but in short, your latch-arm and catch are meant to latch the gate, not stop it; a gate stop will – and will protect your hardware from damage caused by a gate slamming shut (not to mention, keep your warranty valid).
Since bronze doesn’t contain any elements that can rust, this hardware is good to go for the long term. Over time you can see a green patina (on the copper component), but you won’t see rust. Bronze has a living finish that is never pristine. It’s always reacting to its environment in beautiful and unique ways.
Here’s one more look at the craftsmanship and detail – we’re so grateful for the share and always look forward to seeing photos of finished projects!
