Scranton Products Introduces New Hardware with Two New Designer Looks That Add Strength and Longevity

Scranton Products has unveiled two new hardware collections for the Hiny Hiders® brand of partitions, joining its current standard hardware. These collections are highlighted by architectural elements that add visual interest while allowing the rich colors and textures of Scranton Products partitions to come through. They also have the same value-added strength and support as Scranton Products current lines of hardware featuring Stirrup brackets (8-inch wrap around) or Continuous Brackets.

Stealth Hardware Collection – with a modern, minimalist design approach, this hardware line has stylish but subtle looks along with superior strength, support and durability. It’s the perfect hardware match for a space looking to achieve a clean, contemporary design aesthetic. The Stealth Collection is available in Frost, which is a light silvery gray color. It includes a Stealth Integral Hinge, which is integrated within the door and top of the partition and a Slider Latch for easier closure.

Regal Hardware Collection – bold and modern design elements make this hardware line a standout, in three beautiful colors: Smoke (a dark gray), Ember (copper) and Frost. Regal hardware adds a uniquely upscale finish to the bathroom stall, with strength and longevity. It is comprised of the Regal Hinge and Slider Latch.

” Scranton Products’ new hardware collections are as beautiful as they are strong and functional,” said Don Wharton, President of Scranton Products. “We are very proud to offer more hardware options to the design community as the perfect complements to our quality HDPE partitions. We feel they will enhance any bathroom partition job.”

The Stealth and Regal Hardware Collections nicely complement Scranton Products’ latest Metallic and Designer colors in various textures to add to their visual appeal. These colors and textures feature the toughness of HDPE, with the brilliance of metal or natural look of wood .
