Dudley House

Gold Plated Architectural Ironmongery

As part of the overall brief, the client requested specific, hand-made and gold plated door furniture from a traditional manufacturer in France for the front of house areas, whilst also desiring a complimentary look and feel in satin brass and stainless steel finishes for the back-of-house, staff areas, and mews.

Matching items were sourced from our usual suppliers. The hinges had special decorative finials that were manufactured in the same factory as the door furniture in France and these were then physically attached to the hinges in our UK factory which involved the special adaptation of the hinge knuckle to accept the finial’s pin. These were all also gold plated to match the finish of the door furniture.

The locks needed to overcome varying requirements due to the intricate door detailing. We produced these in 60, 80 and 100mm backsets (in all the finishes), as well as then for a few special mirror-clad doors where the locks had to have different backsets for each side of the door. On top of this, the client required the keys to project from each door face by exactly the same amount. Given the differing door thicknesses and lock positions within these, this was achieved via a site survey of every door and then the keys individually produced to suit with a special, client chosen key bow attached to each. As well as the door ironmongery, we also supplied ancillary products for the shower areas, windows and shutters for the windows.
