Satin nickel has a soft brushed appearance with warm silvery tones. It is a ‘plated finish’ where a layer of nickel is plated over solid brass. Many alternatives on the market plate onto inferior metals which will corrode quickly. As such our nickel plated brass may initially cost more but will last far longer, standing the test of time. To retain the finish, regular cleaning with mild soapy water and a non-abrasive cloth is all that is necessary.
