In the Beginning The story of Rocky Mountain Hardware unfolded over three decades ago in a successful showroom owned by co-founders Mark and Patsy Nickum. Working closely with architects, designers and builders in Sun Valley, Idaho, they furnished high-end doors, windows and door hardware for upscale, custom-built homes. Born of Necessity The Nickums quickly realized the need for quality, customized products, as their clients repeatedly asked for pieces that simply didn't exist. They were looking for accessories that would tie their projects together-products with one-of-a-kind character that could be used throughout the entire house to unify the look. Without customized pieces, their clients were settling for something ordinary rather than staying true to the design of the home and making those finishing touches exceptional. 4 O U R S T O R Y Never Say No Whenever a need arose on a project for a particular type of hardware that just couldn't be found, it was created. Starting with one lever and one plate, their clients asked, "Can you do the doorstop?" Their reply? "Sure. We can do a doorstop." The doorstop evolved into a cabinet knob for the kitchen, then on to all the hardware in the bath. Next stop, door accessories and hinges, and finally plumbing and lighting. It comes as no surprise that the Nickum's philosophy of never saying "no" was the inspiration behind the creation of Rocky Mountain Hardware. And that was just the beginning.

Next Chapter Today, over 20 years later, Rocky Mountain Hardware continues its family tradition with their son Christian at the helm. Their unwavering commitment to high-quality, custom bronze pieces is unparalleled. The creation of that next sculptural work of art is already in the works. As for the future? They can't wait for the next request. 5

6 P H I LO S O P H Y Living and Working Green Nestled in the mountains of Hailey, Idaho, Rocky Mountain Hardware's flagship facility is a true testament to their core values. When they decided to expand their company, they started from the ground up-literally. Their goal to design a structure that balanced environmental responsibility with the health and happiness of their employees earned the company LEED ® Gold Certification, a high honor granted by the U.S. Green Building Council. But their dedication to creating a better, greener place goes beyond brick and mortar. Rocky Mountain's philosophies serve as a foundation for how they conduct business-from handcrafting high-quality products, all in the USA, to environmental stewardship and the well being of their employees. Balancing Act As family-owned business, they truly understand that every employee is integral to the company's success. They also appreciate how leading a balanced life impacts the bottom line. That's why the company offers little perks that make coming to work fun. There's a gym, horseshoe pit and basketball court in addition to classes for kettlebells, yoga and pilates. Sustainability Rocky Mountain Hardware is dedicated to green practices when it comes to manufacturing products, too. Each piece of hardware is cast of 90% post-consumer recycled bronze-a fact which can contribute towards earning LEED ® points. All sand used to cast molds is reconditioned on a regular basis for reuse, resulting in zero waste. Bronze chips and grinding dust are also recycled with absolutely no byproduct. And, at the end of the line, each piece is finished in our eco-friendly patina process to create the beautiful hues for which we are known. Because at Rocky Mountain Hardware, living green is more than just an ideal, it's a way of life. All products cast of 90% post-consumer recycled bronze. Made in the USA.

Old-World Artistry The art of sculpting molten bronze into intriguing silhouettes dates back thousands of years. Today, our highly skilled artisans draw up the same time-honored traditions that have been passed down through the generations to handcraft hardware and accessories of uncommon beauty and enduring style. Using Old-World casting techniques, each product touches no less than 30 hands, undergoing a rigorous 20-plus-step process that begins in our pattern shop. An expert craftsman begins by hand sculpting imaginative ideas into pattern boards to create casts using sand or wax. Sand Casting Sand is compacted tightly to both sides of the pattern board. Once set, the boards are removed, and each half of the mold is carefully inspected. The halves are placed back together, forming a cavity to hold the molten bronze. Next, 300 pounds of bronze ingots are melted in a crucible, reaching a temperature of 2,200°F. The bronze is poured by hand into the casts and left to cool. After cooling, the product is removed and sent on for finishing. Lost-Wax Casting For designs that are a bit more intricate, the art of lost-wax casting is employed. This process is extremely time intensive as the wax molds are dipped in a ceramic slurry multiple times and must dry completely between each dip. The molds are placed in kilns to harden. Then, hot molten bronze is poured into the cavity. Once hardened, the shell is cracked off by hand to reveal the bronze piece nestled inside. Finishing Touches Once in the studio, the artistry and detail of the pieces are highlighted with a warm, hand-applied patina and hand-rubbed polish. The finish grows richer and deeper over time as it responds to its environment for one-of-a-kind character. The end product is a sculptural work of art, the handiwork of many, and one that is expertly crafted to last a lifetime. 8 T H E A R T O F C R E AT I O N

10 C U S T O M Your Idea, Our Inspiration For nearly two decades, Rocky Mountain Hardware has looked to our clients for inspiration. The philosophy to "never say no" is the foundation from which our company was built upon. Today, we continue that tradition, partnering with customers to create one-of-a-kind designs with true artisan appeal. Uniquely Yours From small modifications of an existing collection to an original design reimagined in bronze, no project is too big, or for that matter, too small. Whether working from a rough sketch or verbal exchange, our in-house design and engineering team have both the experience and tools to turn every idea into a sculptural work of art. Exacting Precision Our team works closely with each client to identify the most appropriate method to create the initial pattern. Our sophisticated 3-D computer modeling program and rapid prototyping machine are often selected to recreate geometric designs. Or, for more organic designs, our skilled artisans hand carve intricate patterns from wood. From here craftsmen seamlessly combine Old-World casting techniques-with state-of-the-art precision machinery to achieve a perfect end result, capturing every subtle nuance with exact tolerances. One-of-a-Kind Character Each piece is given a lustrous, hand-applied patina that responds to time and its environment for a look that's truly unique. We can also match a wide spectrum of finishes beyond the standard 10 offered to complement your existing aesthetic. To speak to a designer about your custom projects, please call 888-788-2013.
