Emtek 3324, Sandcast Bronze Rectangular Sectional Handleset
The Rectangular Sectional Mortise Handleset is made out of sandcast bronze. Due to the nature of the casting process, each piece comes out with its own unique, rustic look. Choose from flat black, medium bronze, and tumble white bronze finishes with your choice of an array of interior knobs or levers. The Sandcast Bronze Rectangular Sectional Handleset is available in either dummy or single cylinder functions. The single cylinder ANSI F20 mortise box can be toggled to lock automatically upon closing the door. This Traditional Handleset will fit either 2-1/2 inch or 2-3/4 inch backsets and can accommodate doors from 1-3/4 inches to 2-3/4 inches thick.
Sandcasting is a process for casting metal in sand molds. The mold is made by packing the sand around a pattern. Molten bronze is then poured into a mold cavity formed out of sand. Each sand mold is used only once. The sand is then recycled for the next piece.
