Hardware Spec Terms Defined

We know that having the correct spec information is crucial when designing a space, so we want to make it easy for customers to identify what they are and where to find them. You can find spec information for all Berenson hardware on our website under their product listing. Once you're on our website, we also offer downloadable spec sheets so you can share product details with clients, coworkers, your contractor, or keep them for yourself! Spec information is also available in our catalogs.
