Iron Matte Black is a powder coating that is applied to metal surfaces to create a durable, protective finish that is resistant to corrosion and wear. It is often used on shower doors or other metal fixtures to accent or compliment other fixtures in a  bathroom. This matte finish is a flat surface with no gloss and can soften the rough look of black in a bathroom.

It has grown in popularity in recent years due to its traditional Tudor look and feel, and its ability to blend seamlessly with modern and contemporary designs. It’s also very easy to integrate the frame into virtually any design to elevate the look.
