Baldwin® Hardware’s new matte black hardware with Microban® antimicrobial technology achieves two significant 2020 design trends. First, the high-contrast luxe feel of matte black knobs, deadbolts, and locks. Second, the confidence of knowing that an added layer of protection inhibits the growth of many types of common bacteria on the surface.
Available on all seven products in the Spyglass collection, the matte black finish handlesets, levers, and deadbolts are warm and inviting. Featuring a flat texture and charcoal color, the hardware is a counterpoint that grounds other glossy and bold design elements. Subtle and striking, matte black is very much a modern finish, but when paired with the right warm neutrals, it also blends harmoniously into traditional and transitional spaces.
A layer of antimicrobial protection built into the coating provides a continuous, effective defense against microbial growth for the life span of the matte black Spyglass hardware. On unprotected doorknobs or locks, stain and odor-causing bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes. Microban technology continuously works to keep Baldwin door hardware cleaner for longer and will not wash off or wear away between routine cleanings or from daily use. The Spyglass products available in matte black finish with Microban technology include exterior handlesets, passage, privacy, dummy, and entry levers, and deadbolts.
