The ironmongery in the brushed brass ladder range has a brass plated finish. During the plating process a layer of brass is electroplated onto the surface. The electroplating process involves depositing a thin layer of brass onto the object through the application of an electric current.

The term "brushed" indicates the specific texture or pattern applied to the brass-plated surface prior to plating. The brushing technique creates a series of fine grooves or textures, giving the surface a distinctive brushed and tumbled appearance.

The brass plating serves both functional and aesthetic purposes. Functionally, it provides a protective layer to the underlying base metal, preventing corrosion and enhancing durability. Aesthetically, the brushed brass plated finish adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the object. The brushed texture not only adds visual interest but also helps to minimize the appearance of scratches or wear over time.
