Hardware Renaissance has been crafting hand-forged iron and sand cast solid bronze hardware since 2002, using small batch and resource-sensitive production methods. Its solid bronze hardware contains a minimum 90% recycled content, and sand used in its sand casting is reconditioned and re-used.
Its hand-forged iron hardware is completely handmade, using minimal energy resources. Patinas are environmentally-friendly and hand-applied. All scrap is re-melted and re-used. The hardware is said to require minimal maintenance, and because of its quality and durability, it can stay out of landfill for a very long time.
