Aged Bronze Finish Makes Old New

Back to Top

Schlage Aged Bronze, also known as the 716 finish, is now Schlage's most popular design finishes. Aged bronze is a guaranteed lifetime finish and unlike oil rubbed bronze, aged bronze will not appreciably tarnish or distressed with age.

Schlage' s Oil Rubbed Bronze is designed to oxidize over time and when it is delivered has a flat matte finish that is best described as mocha in color. Over time the finish will soften and wear exposing the zinc alloy underneath and causing it to darken in spots and lighten in others. Oil Rubbed Bronze is one of the most popular finishes in the western areas of the United States due to its southwest appearance and its ability to weather with harsh climates.

For those customers who would like the Oil Rubbed look without waiting for the oxidation and the variability involved, the new Aged Bronze finish is the best choice. Aged Bronze is a fixed finish rather than a living one like Oil Rubbed Bronze and is designed to give customers the same appearance over the life of the product. Aged Bronze is darker than Oil Rubbed and has copper highlights on the edges. A satin gloss to the finish protects the finish from further distressing and is guaranteed to give customers a lifetime of use.
