WATERSON’S BRONZE FINISH SOLUTION - Waterson Multi-function Closer Hinge


Door hardware is the building accessory that can lift your overall entryway aesthetic to new heights. Often builders and consumers choose oil rubbed bronze hinges, door knobs and locks to more closely match their wooden finish. However, while it’s difficult to find a perfect bronze match due to lack of a clearly defined BHMA A156.18 standard on materials and finishes, most manufacturers will simply create their own standard.


Combined with the Waterson Hinge stainless steel body, our US10B Dark Satin Bronze color closely matches the oil rubbed bronze finish generally offered by most manufacturers.  At the same time, the Waterson US10B appearance compliments wood features quite well.  However, for those who are leary of imperfect bronze matching across a variety of hardware, Waterson also offers an elegant black finish that matches well and doesn’t jeopardize the overall aesthetic.


Depending on your project, Waterson has the solution for your design and style needs.  Choose from satin brass, bronze, satin brushed, flat black or white to match your door appearance.
