3. Materials, design, and finishes of glass hardware fittings

Glass hardware fittings play a very important role in the overall function and aesthetics. Hardware accessories of different materials have different prices. For example, glass hardware fittings made of stainless steel are more expensive than aluminum materials because of the high corrosion resistance of stainless steel. And the glass door hardware made of brass is the most expensive and also the best quality. In addition to its beautiful appearance, the brass glass door components are not easy to corrode and sag.

The glass hardware fittings include the handle, pull rod, hinge, guide rail, etc. A handle with a simple design is easier to make and more affordable than a handle with a complex design. Similarly, the complexity of the pull rod shape affects its price. If the shape is simple, the price is affordable. The price of a polished hinge is different from that of an unpolished hinge. Polished hinges are more expensive than unpolished hinges.
