Our Finishes


Industry standards that are anything but ordinary.

Frascio provides one of the broadest ranges
of standard decorative finishes in the industry,

whether electroplated, powder coated, or natural

base material finishes from stainless steel, bronze,

or brass.

Frascio offers a wide range of traditional designer finishes
and utilizes the BHMA finish code system to designate these

standards. BHMA finishes provide resistance to humidity and

cleaning chemicals all while standing tough against scratching

and high-touch use.

By embracing automation Frascio is able to quickly produce beautiful and high quality finishes on commercial grade decorative door hardware. For relieved finishes, we utilize traditional artisanal practices that create surfaces with subtle elegance.

Frascio also proudly offers an industry-leading
range of superior finishes and color options through

the PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) process.

Explore our PVD process below along with our extended range of standard finish options.

PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) –

Process Overview 


   PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) is an innovative coating process that scientifically vaporizes exotic metals within a vacuum chamber and deposits them as a protective metal color layer, providing an outstanding range of beautiful color options.

   The resulting surface is extremely hard and resistant to abrasion, scratching, and general wear and tear, and is highly resistant to chemicals and humid environments.

   Frascio pioneered this process within the door hardware industry 30 years ago and continues to invest in this environmentally friendly manufacturing
