The Woodlands, Tx locksmith examines corrosion resistant door hardware

January 16, 2017

If you have a home or business facility in a humid, salty and/or high wind conditions environment, there are corrosion resistant door hardware solutions for you.


Outdoor venues such as coastal buildings or wet environments including pools, aquariums, water parks and zoos require extra protection and corrosion resistant hardware will assure that buildings remain safe and secure. Corrosion resistant hardware is manufactured with coatings that inhibit rust. Hardware that is designed, tested and certified to WS9827/9927 and 237 standards, will both meet the FEMA 361 and 320 building codes for windstorm resistance.  Corrosive environments like Galveston or some of the southernmost parts of Houston can damage exit devices, hinges, and other door hardware quickly. The facilities manager needs to be aware that this abuse can result from salt, water or excessive winds. For these applications, the same door hardware that’s used in one place in the facility may not be the best choice for areas that are exposed to harsh conditions.


Exit devices exposed to extreme conditions and weather need additional protection against the elements. For these applications. Some manufacturers apply a clear protective coating to the exterior and interior of an exit device’s mechanical components to assist with the prevention of the effects of weather or chemical corrosion. This clear protective coating improves chemical and corrosion resistance provides antimicrobial protection and extends the service life of the hardware. Often exposed to the weather, exit devices on the exterior of a facility can quickly malfunction. Humidity and heavy rain can find its way into the exit device and cause electronics to fail. To prevent the effects of humidity and rain, manufacturers have begun to water-proof switches and add drain holes, improving the product’s functionality and durability in humid or wet conditions.


Homeowners need to think about the door hardware around the pool area. After a short period of time, regular hardware just crumbles to nothing leaving your home unsecured possibly creating an emergency service situation. Here is a short video I produced to show you what this hardware looks like once corrosion takes effect.


On the commercial side of the door hardware spectrum Von Duprin and Hagar manufacture corrosion resistant hardware. In the residential space Baldwin and Schlage have some lifetime finish products available.
