Chrome plating to the highest quality standards.
Chromium plating is now applied to so many different types of article that the brilliant bluish white appearance of the metal is familiar to everyone, and description of it is rendered unnecessary. The deposit does not tarnish and requires but occasional washing with soap and water, or wiping with a soft cloth or damp wash leather, to remove any accumulation of dust and dirt from the surface. The term ‘Bright Chromium Plate’ is used to describe a layer of nickel followed by a final deposit of bright chromium. Direct chromium deposits are not generally used for decorative purposes as to provide a reasonable degree of protection very heavy deposits would be required. Experience over many years has confirmed that nickel is the most suitable undercoat for decorative deposits because of the ease with which bright chromium may be applied, the white colour and good corrosion resistance of the nickel deposit and the relative simplicity of the nickel plating process. The nickel deposit gives protection to the basis metal, and is itself preserved from surface oxidation by the bright chromium deposit. The usual thickness of bright chromium deposits is 0.25 to 0.8 microns (0.00001 to 0.00003 in) onto a base coat of a minimum 8 microns of bright nickel.
At Douglas we only carry out decorative chrome plating to the highest quality standards. We do not carry out hard chrome plating for industrial use.

What Our Clients Say
Just to let you know that the flange arrived on Saturday and is absolutely beautiful. I don't think it was as good when it was new! We're delighted with the result especially as this particular item is no longer available and my husband has grown very fond of it over the last 10 years! Thank you very much indeed. I will certainly recommend your company to anyone who is looking for something like this.
These guys did a stunning job on chrome work for me I haven’t seen even original factory chroming look this good. Can’t recommend them too highly !!
Am in the process of restoring a MK2 Jaguar to concourse condition. I was so impressed with Bishop - Classic Car Chroming - not only with the prompt service, but primarily, to the high degree of finish – irrespective of whether the part was large or small – all the workforce should be congratulated and praised for their dedication and professionalism. Many thanks Bishop and to all those involved. As “Arnold” once said; “I will be back”!
Dean, Val and all staff at Douglas Goods arrived lunchtime on 4 June, as promised. We are thrilled with the transformation of the bathroom accessories and certainly, before we came to your premises, did we think that these items which are well over 20 years old, could be made to look brand new. We would like to say many thanks to you all for the work done and the courtesy, friendliness and efficiency of your company - which is a rare thing these days. We shall have no hesitation in recommending Douglas to anyone who needs similar work done.
