ProVia Art Glass Program

With several new enhancements, ProVia’s Art Glass line promises to give homeowners more opportunities to customize their door and window glass designs. Originally branded as Inspirations Art Glass, the new program will be known simply as Art Glass, and according to ProVia, it will allow for more precise color matching between the glass designs and ProVia’s standard and trending paint colors. The new Art Glass program has an extensive array of tools to help homeowners pick the perfect color combination, and a new “color-by number” system accurately applies the selected colors to predetermined areas within the design. Applied colors will now be opaque rather than transparent for a more expressive and colorful design, while clear and no-fill options will still be available.

Adjustable Soft-Close Compact Hinge

Hardware Resources is expanding its soft-close compact hinge line to include the new 9390ADJ Series, an easy-to-adjust, variable-speed soft-close hinge. The hinge features 10 adjustment options to control the speed of the soft-close feature which, according to the manufacturer, makes it the ideal choice for custom cabinetry shops who want to standardize with a single hinge for various door sizes and weights. The 9390ADJ Series also features a quiet glide channel that is reported to reduce friction and noise when the hinges open and close. According to the manufacturer, these features, coupled with the company’s steel soft-close damper, extend the life and reliability of the hinge.
