Finishes

Galvanisation and PVD superfinishes

Galvanic finishes

The handle is protected by a layer of chrome. Galvanisation of the brass handle gives it a protective metal coat of nickel-chromium to guard against wear and corrosion.

CR – Bright Chrome

The bluish-silver colour and perfect shine make this finish particularly suitable for elegant settings. The finish has a 10-year guarantee.

CO – Satin Chrome

The satin finish lends the handle a pleasant tactile quality. The chromed reflections carry a formal connotation suggesting use in modern settings. The finish has a 10-year guarantee.

PVD Finishes

With physical vapour deposition, a polished or satin-finish chrome handle is coated with an ulterior layer of metal (superfinishing) under high vacuum. Vacuum metallisation is extremely hard and durable. Nanocomposites of metal determine the specific colour of the surface and protect it from wear, scratches and aggressive substances such as humidity, sweat, salt spray, temperature swings and ultraviolet rays.

IS – SuperStainlessSteel satin

The colour is that of stainless steel, but the surface hardness obtained with the PVD process is much superior. Its elevated toughness makes this a high-tech finish particularly suited to use on doors in high-traffic locations. The finish has a 30-year guarantee.

US – SuperAnthracite satin

This is a dark grey with metallic reflections, making for a very modern and exclusive finish. Its hardness is superior to chrome, and its aesthetics are suited to high-tech settings. The finish has a 10-year guarantee.

NL – SuperNickel bright

This shiny finish has the warm, elegant colour of nickel plus the advantages of remaining unaltered over time and not causing allergic reactions. Suitable for comfortable and sophisticated settings. The finish has a 30-year guarantee.

NS – SuperNickel satin

The satin finish offers full expression to the refined colour of nickel. It exalts and makes more precious the shapes of the handle to which it is applied. The finish has a 30-year guarantee.

ZL – SuperGold bright

Here is a practically eternal finish, for its pleasing looks as well as its durability. While the tonality is the prestigious one of rich gold, the qualities of endurance and toughness are the very elevated ones of Olivari Superfinishes. The finish has a 30-year guarantee.

TS – SuperGold satin

This combination between the classical softness of satin brass and the modernity of the superfinish makes for durability and constancy of colour over time. The finish has a 30-year guarantee.

RS – SuperCooper satin

This innovative and expressive superfinish represents a taste for strength, character and openness to the new. Suited for refined and sophisticated settings. The finish has a 10-year guarantee.
