All of our products are solid brass, crafted to exacting standards. Each Omnia design is hand polished and highly buffed, after which a hard, transparent lacquer finish is baked on for extra durability.
Polished, lacquered brass will eventually age, a natural process. The speed at which this process occurs varies according to many different factors. Lacquer can break down due to atmospheric conditions, exposure to cleaning products, paints, stains or even water; elements over which we have no control.
If you wish to maintain the rich lustre of its original polished condition, some steps are necessary.
* After initial installation, apply a non-abrasive wax (such as beeswax) to the entire visible trim and polish with a soft flannel cloth. Please follow the wax manufacturer's instructions carefully.
* We recommend this process be done monthly to maintain the highly polished finish. (The wax will protect the brass from outside elements, however it will not prevent scratching.)
* To achieve the traditional antique brass finish, do not apply any waxes and allow your hardware to age naturally.
Omnia is committed to providing you with an unparalleled selection of quality hardware that is both durable and has long-lasting beauty. Our goals are straightforward: beautiful products that enhance their setting, perform flawlessly and are sensibly priced.
