Door handles are available in two basic types. Lever handles and Knob handles. The range we offer are all lever type:
Door Handles with a back plate which can be either plain or incorporated a keyhole or a privacy turn knob. The back plate is then screwed to the door. Standard locks, bathroom locks or latches can be used.
A Round Rose style where the handle connects without visible screws using a round plate against the door giving a very clean upmarket look. The lock, bathroom lock or latch must be a both through version enabling the fixings for the handles to pass through.
Blenheim has a unique curved feature at the top and bottom of the back plate with scroll lever handle.
The Victorian flat and scroll lever handles are available either as polished brass or polished chrome
All other styles are available as polished brass, polished chrome and the very practical satin chrome finish which helps conceal the little finger prints.
This range of latches, locks and bathroom locks secure the door closed.
Internal doors are usually fitted with a mortice latch also referred to as a tubular latch and the front visible end or face plate and the striking plate are available in finishes to match the door handles. A standard mortice latch is suitable for all back plate lever handles however round rose lever handles will require a bolt through version.
When fitting a mortice lock to internal or external doors a standard mortice will suffice. If a round rose lever handle is fitted a matching escutcheon will be required with a bolt through mortice lock.
Bathroom or privacy lever handles are fitted the same way as a mortice lock only using a bathroom lock with a thumb turn facility. This time the lever handle has a thumb turn knob which is accessed from inside the bathroom or toilet. Round rose lever handles are fitted the same way but the escutcheon is replaced with a bathroom turn and the bolt through bathroom lock.
