This new hardware is precision crafted from post-consumer recycled aluminum, a methodology which causes less impact on the environment. Using post consumer recycled aluminum reduces the generation of air and water pollution by 95%, requires only 5% of the energy and greenhouse gases used in production of new metals, and helps prevent clear-cutting of tropical rainforests. Die cast aluminum hardware allows for precise measurements and consistent finishes, ensuring that each production piece is identical to and as flawless as the original
Du Verre Hardware requires a minimum of care. To clean, simply dust or polish with a soft dry cloth. We recommend avoiding the use of harsh cleaners, abrasives and chemicals as these can break down the lacquer finish. Die cast aluminum pieces are durable enough for outdoor use.
