Factory Pre-Finishing

Dynamic factory finishing of windows and doors will provide a superior coverage that far exceeds any post delivery finishing.  Applying the finish to all sides of the product, behind hinges, weather-strips and inside of glazing pockets cannot be easily accomplished after delivery. Applying factory pre-finish is especially important during wetter seasons when the windows & doors may be exposed to excessive moisture or humidity immediately after delivery. Dynamic’s pre-finish options reduce the on-site finishing costs significantly while sealing and protecting the wood from moisture during the construction process.

Bronze Artisan Patinas™

Dynamic’s bronze clad is a heavy gauge extruded brass. The clad is available with a traditional oil-rubbed bronze patina in either light or dark finish giving the windows and doors the appearance of naturally aged bronze.

Note: Patina colors will vary from the images on your screen.

Dynamic’s factory applied patina finishes are crafted by creating a hand burnished chemical reaction on the surface of the brass extrusion. This process does result in variations in color, hue, and sheen and will occur in every application. The mottled and variable appearance of the patina adds to the character and creates the look of an aged surface. An even paint like color is not the objective of the process, as the inconsistent color, sheen and hue are all considered integral to the desired appearance of an aged and weathered finish. Factors that can contribute to the color variations include:

  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Slight variations in the composition of the brass alloy
  • Individual application variations by the plating technicians.

Torched-On Patina Finishes

Torched-On Steel Window Patina FinishesA popular look today is the steel patina finish. Not as consistent in color as a powder coat finish the torched-on zinc patina has a character of its own with variations in color, hue, and consistency which will occur in every application. The mottled and variable appearance of the patina adds to the character and creates the look of an aged surface. An even paint like color is not the objective of the process, as the inconsistent color and weathered look are all considered integral to the desired appearance. A variety of patina colors are available with the torched-on zinc applied to the mild steel prior the patina color being applied. The zinc coating offers protection against corrosion.

Stainless-Arte

As the stainless profile is manufactured using a (316 Grade) – Marine stainless the Arte profile is designed for corrosion resistance in high exposure coastal applications or in contemporary projects where the design intent requires a polished or brushed stainless appearance. The stainless profiles do not offer the same levels of flexibility as the Steel-Arte profiles at this time but they can be the ideal solution when used in a high salt-air environment.

Metal Finish Maintenance

Even when using the best finishes available, it is essential in any corrosive environment such as seacoast application that a regularly scheduled cleaning and maintenance routine is in place for both aluminum and steel window & door applications.
