What is Prop 65:
Proposition 65, "The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986",
is California legislation that requires businesses to provide a clear and reasonable
warning about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects,
or other reproductive harm. An official list of these substances is published and
updated by the California Environment Protection Agency Office of Environmental Health
Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) and can be found at:

Our manufactures are committed to providing high quality Brass, Steel, Stainless Steel and Crystal
cabinet and door hardware products.
Brass contains trace elements of lead and some Crystal contains lead to improve clarity.
These materials have been identified by the State of California as harmful and are present
on the official list. Exposure levels are influenced by many factors, including the intended
use or application of the product. If products are not installed, operated, and
maintained in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, there is a potential risk
of exposure to substances, including lead, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer,
birth defects, or reproductive harm.
