The Ortoire combines high-quality polished copper and brass in a simple, refined form. Each tap is carefully handcrafted and tested in our Brighton-based workshop, UK. The tap can be polished to a number of different finishes, making it possible to find the tone that best suits your kitchen or bathroom interior.
Natural Copper Finish:
The Natural Copper Finish is one of our most popular choices, as Copper is an excellent choice for use as an outdoor material as it will never rust and is essentially immune to corrosion with an estimated plumbing life span of between 70-80 years. Once a product is made, it is rough sanded back to a raw state, then gradually polished up to a smooth and shiny satin finish which is left - (un-lacquered). Over time this will tarnish, darkening in colour to a variety of rustic copper tones.
Satin Copper (Lacquered):
Items specified for the Satin Lacquered Finish are sanded back to their raw state, before then being gradually polished up to a smooth satin finish through a series of increasingly finer grades. These products are then cleaned and checked over before being treated with 3 coats of marine grade lacquer to help preserve the shiny satin appearance.
A range of specialist finishes are available upon request.
