As architectural ironmongers, at More Handles we are often asked about how to prevent marine corrosion, rust, and atmospheric pitting in door handles and other door furniture.
By their nature, door handles, door knobs, pull handles and push plates, bell pushes and letter plates must be used on the exterior of a house or other building. In seaside towns and cities, marine corrosion can take a terrible toll on these products. So, how to battle this form of corrosion? As with many things, prevention is better than a cure. When a customer asked what steps they can take to avoid salt-spray corrosion, we would tell them to choose their door furniture based on what materials are resistant to sea corrosion.
Lets take a look at some basic rules to remember when choosing door handles for use outside by the sea.
