Door Hardware Targets Security, Aesthetics
ASSA ABLOY has announced a new Black Suede (BSP) finish, available across a large, multi-brand offering of door hardware. Similar to the highly sought-after matte black finishes now seen throughout both residential and commercial spaces, ASSA ABLOY’s Black Suede exudes a sophisticated elegance with a “suede-like” feel.
From interior paint, to kitchen appliances, faucets and hardware, matte black has quickly become a popular finish for a multitude of interior and exterior designs, from refined contemporary to high-end industrial. Black Suede is a permanent matte finish that has proven to maintain its original “suede-like” appearance with no signs of dulling. Suitable for most applications where aesthetics and durability are of equal importance, Black Suede ushers in extensive options for designers who seek to incorporate this popular trend throughout a space.
“ASSA ABLOY’s Black Suede finish is arriving at the perfect time for designers,” says Sandra Matheny, Director of Decorative Openings for ASSA ABLOY. “The finish is not only modern and chic, but it’s incredibly versatile. At ASSA ABLOY, we’re committed to designing sustainable, durable, and aesthetically pleasing door hardware that’s responsive to the expectations of our designers and their clients.”
Black Suede is the latest in a growing list of new, on-trend finishes available for door hardware from Corbin Russwin, Norton, Rixson, SARGENT, Yale, and the ASSA ABLOY Architectural Door Accessories product lines of Markar, McKinney, Pemko, and Rockwood. From door closers and locks to hinges and a multitude of other accessories, the availability of this finish across such a vast portfolio can achieve a more fluid, consistent design throughout interior and exterior openings.
