Decorative zinc diecastings are widely used in the hardware industry as they produce highly accurate fixtures and fittings that can take a wide range of functional and decorative finishes. The main finishes used are powder coating, nickel, chrome, brass and zinc passivates. Please see the ‘finishes’ section of our website for further information on what is possible.

Zinc has always been a material of choice for window keeps and brackets due to its ease of casting, low cost and corrosion resistance when zinc plated. Many window keeps are manufactured using a tooling bolster and the inserts for each design of keep are quickly and easily fitted when required. This keeps tooling and set up costs to a minimum which is essential when manufacturing products in a highly competitive market.
