Strand Hardware: D-Fine Makes a Splash for Seaside Safety

  • 12 Apr 2024

Strand Hardware‘s D-Fine range is designed to withstand the harsh conditions prevalent in coastal environments. Made from 316 stainless steel, it is unparalleled panic hardware which boasts anti-corrosive benefits. This makes it the ideal choice for safeguarding properties against the elements while maintaining safety.

Tourism is a vital strand to the economic wellbeing of Britain’s seaside towns. Facilities not only have to look appealing and spotless to attract and retain custom, but also ensure the safety of their patrons.

From hotels, pubs and restaurants to leisure and sea-facing facilities such as swimming pools, lifeboat stations and pier buildings, hardware durability is vital to ensure functionality while keeping up appearances.


It is fair to say that coastal properties are subject to unique challenges, including saltwater corrosion, high winds, and extreme weather conditions. Traditional hardware solutions can often fall short in providing long-term protection and reliability in such environments. 

D-Fine’s push bars, touch bars and outside access mechanisms are constructed entirely from 316 stainless steel, including all internal and external components. These are designed to resist the corrosive effects of saltwater and moisture and ensure a long life, even in the harshest marine environments. They have even been fitted in ships and on oil rigs.

Beyond functional attributes, Strand Hardware‘s D-Fine boasts a sleek and modern design aesthetic that complements any architecture. With clean lines, smooth finishes, and contemporary styling, this hardware solution adds a touch of elegance which seamlessly integrates with any design scheme.

It also provides ease of installation and maintenance – ensuring hassle-free operation for property owners and installers. 

By combining superior durability, functionality, and aesthetics, D-Fine sets the standard for safeguarding properties against the elements – even on those rare days when the sun is shining.
