Williams Gate Works Bronze Gate Hardware Page

At Williams Gate Works, we know that when it comes to durability, beauty, and resistance to rust, nothing beats bronze gate hardware. We carry a wide array of bronze gate latches, hinges, strap hinges, and more designed for functionality and to add beauty and elegance to your gates for years.

Our Bronze hinges are an ideal choice for all types of gateways or entrances as they are resistant to the harsh conditions associated with the coastal environment. Bronze does not rust and is resistant to corrosion, things that detract from the beauty and functionality of your gates. The hinges are pure Bronze consisting of 90%coper and 10% tin. All our hinges, including strap hinges, butt hinges and our non-active band hinges have a textured old world style finish, and are covered by warranty.

When it comes to bronze gate or thumb latches, we have a wide assortment including double thumb latch and drop bar type, ring turn drop bar latches, pull handles, lever turn handle varieties with drop bar latch on Euro or rounded square plate, and more. A bronze gate latch not only adds to the old world look, but adds to security as well providing easy entrance and exit to areas of your home or commercial property.

There are various types of hinges, latches, and other hardware designed for use with gates such as stainless steel, aluminum, iron, even brass. While all of these materials serve their purpose, nothing offers the elegant, lasting beauty and functionality of bronze gate hardware. Cast and wrought iron is one of the most popular choices among homeowners, however it is important to know that even with a powdercoat finish, this type of hardware will eventually rust, particularly in areas where two components of a latch come together. A bronze gate latch provides that beautiful “old world” look and will never rust, regardless of the elements.

Bronze strap hinges are designed to last a lifetime, and the ideal complement to any wood gate whether backyard, driveway, side yard, or other entrance. While our specialty is crafting the highest quality wood gates for every need, we believe a beautiful gate deserves bronze gate hardware that is just as beautiful.

Whether you need a bronze thumb latch, bronze strap hinges or other hardware, count on Williams Gate Works for accessories that make your gates stand apart with distinct old world charm and unsurpassed quality. Contact us today for all of your bronze gate hardware needs.

Get the Look: Bronze Gate Hardware

Bronze gate hardware including coastal bronze strap hinge

 

Sometimes it’s easier to know what you want by seeing something that’s already put together. This beautiful cedar gate has the following hardware and quantities installed on it:

The weight of the gate only requires two hinges and pintles, but because there are three rails (horizontal members) to the gate, the client opted to use one hinge per rail. In the photos below you can see more of the detail of the installation. Note the drop-bar of the thumb latch kit. This is installed on the interior of the gate–you can see the tongue coming through underneath it. This is what you lift to release the drop-bar from the catch in order to open the gate. On the exterior side of the gate you have a lovely solid bronze 8″ handle.

Below the drop-bar is the bronze gate stop. The purpose of a gate stop is to prevent the gate from over-closing. In the photo, the gate stop is installed to the edge of the gate. If the gate is slammed by a person or the wind, the gate stop will catch on the surface of the post, so that the drop-bar can fall into place. The drop-bar itself isn’t made to withstand repeated slamming.

A close-up view of the 17″ Bronze Band Hinge shows the hefty bolts that connect the hinge and pintle to the wood of the gate and post.

What is Bronze?
Bronze is an alloy that contains mostly copper, tin and some lead . It’s introduction over 5,000 years ago revolutionized metal work and launched the Bronze Age. By adding tin to copper, workers created a metal that was stronger and impervious to corrosion. Bronze artifacts have been found dating from as early as 3,500 BC.

How is Bronze gate hardware different from Brass gate hardware?
Brass is also an alloy of copper, but differs from bronze in that its primary additive is zinc instead of tin. Brass is similar to bronze in hardness but suffers from the process of ‘dezincification’. This process that begins upon exposure to heat and humidity is the leaching of zinc from the metal. As the zinc migrates from the copper it leaves a porous structure susceptible to cracking and corrosion. As a result, brass hardware may eventually exhibit persistent red spots (zinc oxide) and become more brittle and crack as they age.

Brass is commonly used for door hardware because the melting temperature is lower than bronze making it easier to cast in an automated production. The high melting point of bronze necessitates casting in sand (a more difficult process) since the metal molds used in brass production would melt. A new sand mold is created for every individual casted part for Coastal Bronze.

Understanding Why Corrosion Happens
Corrosion of door hardware and gate hardware occurs through several mechanisms that are electrochemical in nature. In other words, chemicals react with the metals to produce an electric current. This current changes the structure and composition of the metal and results in pitting, flaking, chipping and cracking.

The following chart illustrates how various metals found in door and gate hardware compare in their resistance to corrosion:

Least Subject to Corrosion
  • Stainless Steel
  • Bronze
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Cast Iron
  • Wrought Iron
  • Mild Steel
  • Aluminum

Most Subject to Corrosion

It should also be noted that while stainless steel is more resistant to corrosion than bronze, it may be more susceptible at its edges, creases and at points where it contacts other metals.

In an attempt to prevent corrosion, manufacturers use various coatings (e.g. powder-coat, paint and sealers) on the more susceptible metals. These coatings invariably fail to prevent corrosion since even microscopic gaps or inconsistencies in the coatings expose metal. This provides points of corrosion that can rapidly grow. The result is that the coatings are undermined, separating them from the surface leading to cracking and chipping.

Is Bronze gate hardware more Beautiful?
Moving from the scientific to the aesthetic, we can assess the superiority of bronze as a feature in the landscape. Bronze has a long history of use as the preferred material for outdoor gate hardware, partly because of its durability but mainly because it weathers so beautifully.

Once installed outdoors, the metallic bronze gate hardware darkens to an old-penny brown then eventually to a greenish/blue patina. These colors compliment the browns and greens in nature and do not distract from the natural beauty of the landscape.

Q&A
Q: How do you care for your Coastal Bronze Home Hardware?
A: Never use spray or liquid furniture polishes to clean your bronze hardware. These polishes may contain oils which could damage the original patina finish.
A: In climates with higher humidity, or if you live where there is a higher concentration of airborne pollutants, cleaning and waxing may be needed twice a year.

Q: How do you apply wax on your Coastal Bronze Hardware?
A: All bronze darkens with age, however waxing may slow the process of oxidation.
To apply the wax, you need two - one to two inch paint brushes that will be used only for cleaning your bronze. Do not use brushes that you have used for other purposes as chemicals may remain in the bristles and if transferred to the patina finish, may cause permanent discoloration.
Steps:
1. Start by applying a protective circle of tape around the metal ferrules that hold the bristles in the brushes you are using. This will help prevent scratching of the surface when applying the wax and when dusting.
2. Wipe your bronze free of any dust and fingerprints using a clean, dry, cotton cloth. Use one of the brushes to remove dust from small crevasses or hard to reach places.
3. Use "Renaissance" wax, or other "microcrystalline" waxes in most cases, because it is inert and will not yellow over time. Apply to the second brush, use three or four, back and forth, sweeping strokes. Do not dab your brush in the wax. This could cause an abundance of wax to be applied to the bronze that could actually harm the patina surface.
4. Dab your brush on the lid of the wax can to remove any excess wax.
5. Lightly apply a super thin coat of wax to the surface of the bronze using gentle sweeping motions.
6. Apply more wax to the brush as described, working it down into crevices.

Q: What should I be cautious of when applying wax to my Coastal Bronze Hardware?
A: Using too much wax may remove previous layers of wax. It is very important not to apply too much wax or work it into the surface to vigorously. Cover the entire surface with wax and let it dry according to the directions on the container.

Q: What are some things I should remember when applying wax to my Coastal Bronze Hardware?
A: Keep your brushes separately in labeled bags, free from other contaminants, for future use.
A: Using a clean, dry, cotton cloth, gently rub in a circular motion, the dried wax from the bronze surface until you achieve the desired shine. To achieve a dull surface, do not rub the surface after waxing.
A: To achieve a better protective coating for your Coastal Bronze Hardware, you may want to re-apply a second coat using the same technique.
