New Matte Black Architectural Door Hardware

ASSA ABLOY South Africa, pioneer and turnkey door opening solutions specialist, is proud to announce the launch of Black Series, a new range of world-class, highly elegant matte black architectural door hardware from its globally renowned UNION brand.

Black Series from UNION – stylish, robust matte black door furniture that will keep its good looks.
The aesthetic appeal of this new matte black hardware range will complement the final interior appearance of commercial and residential buildings without compromising on functionality.

Featuring a sophisticated unmatched product finish, a modern, stylish design and an extensive product choice, Black Series provides a complete matte black door furniture solution that meets the exacting requirements of architects, interior designers and contractors.

The aesthetic appeal of this new matte black hardware range will complement the final interior appearance of commercial and residential buildings without compromising on functionality.  The product offering which includes lever handles, pull handles, hinges, escutcheons, cylinders, doorstops, indicator bolts, and door closers, present the industry with a wide selection to choose from. Its contemporary style and sleek design combined with a smooth look-and-feel finish will pair perfectly with trendy black sanitary ware, black doors or other modern interior features.

Manufactured from robust grade 304 stainless steel and coated with black electro-plating, the Black Series has been designed to last and keep its good looks. With the objective of ensuring a durable quality finish, UNION, as a specialist manufacturer of reliable, quality architectural door products, conducted intensive research into different product finishes as well as different surfacing technologies before deciding on the best coating method for its new Black Series. “Unlike other coating methods offered by alternate products, UNION’s black electro-plated coating ensures door furniture with a sustainable, long-lasting, top quality black finish,” affirms Claudio de Castro, Product Development Manager of ASSA ABLOY South Africa.                                                                                                    

The electro-plating process bonds the colour together with the metal which makes the colour finish part of the material itself. A protective clear coat finish completes the process. de Castro points out that the whole range is electro-plated all at once, and the colour carefully managed to ensure a consistent matte black colour , look and finish.

Black Series has also been salt-spray tested, to ensure suitability for external applications where the range is exposed to all types of weather conditions including highly humid and corrosive coastal climates.

According to de Castro, the products have a comfortable smooth feel on the hands and as the finish is not too shiny or too matte, it does not leave any fingerprints after handling.  He concludes: “We are extremely excited about Black Series from UNION which extends the internationally renowned lock-making specialist’s ironmongery offering to the South African market. We are confident that this new range of matte black hardware is perfectly positioned to rapidly become a popular industry choice.”
