TOPIC: Coated deck hardware?

Coated deck hardware? 2 years 8 months ago #116823

In the advertising for some of the MFGs in the library, the adds make several references to "coated hardware". Does anyone know what is being described? Is it plated? Painted?

Thanks!

It's coated with some sort of plastic coating over the metal, per the 1964 sales brochure. By 1966, they started to switch back to chrome plated hardware on the Niagara and Westfield. The coated hardware had little silver tape stripes that tended to wear quickly.

Thanks Dave! Actually, you have answered two questions. When I removed the hardware, between the deck and the metal was a layer (almost like a gasket) of white plastic material, with odd imbedded silver tape. So I am guessing that wasn't a gasket of some type, it was simply all that remained of the original coating! Thanks again,

Talbot
