Far and away Cliffside’s most popular-selling finish, this brushed finish matches well with any stainless steel or brushed nickel hardware. Silver Satin is both bold in presentation and delicate in color.
The second brushed finish featured in this blog, our Antique Brass is a rich golden color with dark detailing. Our Antique Brass finish is well-suited to any traditional furniture, especially in darker woods. Continue reading “Cliffside’s Top Ten Finishes”
For our inaugural blog entry, Cliffside Industries is proud to present our top ten hardware styles. This list encompasses some of our most popular knobs, hinges, and pulls. Enjoy!
1. 100 series knobs
True to its roots, the 100-series knob has remained the same since Cliffside’s founding in 1987. Featuring an elegantly tapered stem and a pristine flat face, this hardware will lend a classic look to your kitchen or bath. There are also backplates available in a few select finishes to match this particular knob.
The diameter of the 100 series knob is 1¼” at the widest point and ¾” at the base. It is also approximately 1⅛” tall. This is the first knob that Cliffside Industries marketed and sold. It is available in all of our top 10 finishes, as well as several others.
2. BH2A series hinges
Unlike many of our competitors, Cliffside’s hinges are and have always been manufactured from high quality solid brass. These hinges are also adjustable and are made with 6 countersunk screw holes (4 have adjustment space). The BH2A is the top seller in our hinge line by far, topped with our signature decorative finial, though a few selected finishes are available without the finial as well.
All of our hinges are extruded brass, meaning that they are pushed through a die and cut individually rather than stamped from a sheet of metal. Copper, a main component of brass, often requires temperatures in excess of 1100°F to extrude. The benefits of extruded brass are great, reducing squeaking and wear on the metal and providing increased durability. The plate face of the hinge is 2 inches in length, while the barrel is 2¾” inches long. Continue reading “Cliffside’s Top Ten List”
