The Foundation for High Performance Outdoor Lighting

All Hammerton Studio outdoor fixtures are constructed in aluminum, a corrosion-resistant material that also offers tremendous design versatility. When properly pre-treated and finished, aluminum is an ideal material for outdoor fixtures that are subject to the harshest climates -- including coastal, desert, mountain and tropical.

But material is only one-half of the story. Construction is equally important, and with outdoor lighting the importance of superior quality construction goes well beyond aesthetics. Flush caps, seamless welds and tight joints aren't just visually appealing: they can also extend fixture life by discouraging weathering and corrosion. This relentless attention to fixture detail helps bring additional benefits of durability and longevity to all Hammerton Studio outdoor lights.

An Added Measure of Corrosion Resistance

We've all seen weathered outdoor fixtures covered in chalky white powder. Similar to iron rust, that's what happens to aluminum when it eventually oxidizes. To resist against oxidation, Hammerton Studio outdoor fixtures are pretreated with a chromate conversion coating to passivate the aluminum and inhibit the corrosion that causes oxidation.

Pretreatment provides an added measure of resistance against the weathering and corrosive effects of UV, humidity and salty sea air. Our pretreatment processes have been subjected to rigorous UV and salt spray tests to ensure effectiveness.

Hammerton finishes offer a unique combination of beauty, durability, and environmental compliance. View a brief videeo about our finishes and proprietary processes here.

Ruggedly Durable & Environmentally Friendly

Hammerton Studio outdoor fixtures are finished with AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) 2604-rated finishes that provide the highest standard of durability and weather resistance. In fact, they're the same quality and grade of finish that's regularly used on aluminum-clad skyscrapers. AAMA finishes are rigorously tested to ensure superior performance in color and gloss retention, hardness, and weathering and corrosion resistance.

AAMA 2604 finishes are also environmentally compliant. Like most powder coats, they emit no VOCs and can contribute toward LEED credits of the US Green Building Council.
