Recycled Metal Hardware Adds Character

Share this on:

Looking for the perfect adornments to your cabinetry, doors, windows, shutters, and kitchen and baths (including sinks and lighting)? If you like the durable nature and cool aesthetic of metal, look no further than these hardware resources (for residential, commercial and hospitality applications)…

Rocky Mountain Hardware offers a complete line of handmade, solid bronze architectural hardware in stock and custom designs. Each piece is hand carved and sculpted with an enhanced patina, making individual pieces unique and beautiful. The hardware can be found through select distributors and showrooms.

All of the company’s bronze products contain a minimum of 72% recycled content (50% post-consumer), are made in the USA (in Idaho), and come with a lifetime guarantee. Use of this environmentally-friendly hardware can help achieve LEED points for projects seeking certification. The company is proud of it’s green manufacturing facility as well.

Portland, Oregon’s Eleek, Inc. hand-crafts drawer pulls, switchplates, and sinks, from 100% post-consumer recycled aluminum or recycled bronze.  This small company has many environmental practices in place for its daily operations as well.  The hardware has a modern flair inspired by Japanese design.  A Restoration collection is more detailed and ornate.

DuVerre Hardware offers a die-cast collection of knobs & pulls manufactured from post-consumer recycled aluminum.  A sample of this product line, pictured below, is elegant and cost effective.

Another great, green option is to purchase antique hardware where an aged patina brings character into any room and can be found online, at antique and second-hand shops, and at architectural salvage yards.
