Translucent Finishes

Our translucent finishes show off the character and texture of the metal beneath. Our finishing process utilizes the methods that will bring out the beauty of the materials. Powder coating is more resistant to impact, moisture, chemicals, and UV light than liquid paints. The eco-benefits of powder coating include low to no VOCs, the capability to recapture and reuse overspray and the ability to return exhaust.


Variations in finish appearances are a normal and desired result of the process, rendering each piece an individual and unique work of art. Shown here in Dark Smoke (-07) are examples of the different textures and patterns seen through our translucent finishes.

Coastal Outdoor Finishes

​Hubbardton Forge offers some of the most robust, environmentally-friendly finishes available for exterior lighting fixtures, and continuously works to improve durability with new formulations that are rigorously tested.

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association, who sets the standards for coating performance on architectural applications, has recently designated four of our Coastal Outdoor Finishes (-14, -75, -77, -78) as AAMA 2604-certified, meeting the highest standard in durable, weather resistant finishes available. They are corrosion-resistant and color-fast, with significant protection against harmful UV rays. These coatings deliver exceptional hardness and scratch resistance for enhanced performance in seacoast environments. AAMA 2604-rated finishes, also known as “Super Durable Polyester powders”, are the same quality and standard that is used on aluminum-clad buildings. Why is this important? So that your exterior lighting fixtures remain not just beautiful, but protected, for years to come. Need LEED credits? These powder coat finishes emit zero-VOCs and can contribute toward your LEED certification, according to the US Green Building Council.

We offer a Lifetime Limited Warranty on ALL of our Coastal Outdoor Finishes, unless you are 10 miles or less from a sea coast, in which case we offer a 5-year warranty.

Maintaining your Outdoor Products

Methods for cleaning the powder coat finish depend on the characteristics of the surface soil. Use water and mild soap or detergent with a sponge or soft cloth for light surface soils. For medium to heavy soils a mild solvent, such as mineral spirits, can be used for removal of grease, sealants or caulking compounds. Spot testing should be performed first to ensure there is no coating damage or staining from cleaning materials.

Please note: Small blemishes and bubbles are inherent in hand-blown glass and are not considered defects. Due to the nature of the glass-making process, the pattern and balance of color in the glass may vary significantly within a piece and from one piece to another. It is the individuality of each piece that is so sought after.
