Ace style hardware has always been our favorite style, but a recent trip reinforced that feeling. While at Green Gables on Prince Edward Island, we ran across the Ace style on a heritage building. It was cool to see the original design for this hardware that had been made 100 years ago.
The Ace may have its background in the past, but our current version is 21st century, with an industrial nylon wheel riding on whisper quite ball bearing. Soft close technology ensures the door closes slowly for the last 3 inches, even if closed with force.
This is a great choice for both very rustic, and very modern looks, and pairs well with our hardwood Farm Door.
