Blackened Stainless Steel refers to the finish of the front door cladding material on the interior and exterior faces of the door. Stainless steel sheets undergo our proprietary finishing process to achieve our organic mottled finish. The result is a Blackened Stainless Steel (BSS) finish that is truly unique and absolutely no two sheets are alike. BSS cladding can be applied as one single sheet per side or by the way of multiple panels per side. Single sheet type applications create one continuous varying surface. The focal point would solely be on the movement of the finish on the single sheet door panel. Multiple panel type applications are highly variable because each panel is different than the other. Each piece would have its own uniques personality. Additionally, the seams between each panel create another architecture detail. Due to the movement of the finish and its’ “Organic” aesthetic, our BSS finish coordinates nicely with stone walls and floor coverings. Other natural finishes, such as wood walls, also work well with the Blackened Stainless Steel finish.
These square door length pulls are finished strategically in Brushed Stainless Steel. In this case, the pulls allow the finish in the door panel to remain as the focal point. They do not detract from the door. Round and bowed pulls are also available in the Brushed Stainless Steel finish. The pulls travel the entire height of the door. Its span is limited to the height of the door, but the impressions they create are much, much more.
However, if you would like to make a bigger statement, our BSS cladding finish is the perfect background for any of our hand-sculpted pulls.
In the above example, one sidelight was used on this black stainless-steel front door. Sidelights are a phenomenal source of lighting for your foyer. Clear Low E glass is the most common front door glass selected. However, we offer other types of glass to provide privacy. Single sidelights are usually placed on the active side of the pivot door. Keep in mind the other architectural details of the home, such as rooflines and walkways, when selecting a single or pair of sidelites. A single sidelite will promote asymmetry and a pair of sidelites promotes symmetry. Additionally, sidelites enable homeowners to see who is at the front door and can also be used to create clearance for furniture and/or stairs at the entryway.
