These hand forged ironmongery sets are perfect for our oak or pine ledged doors and contain everything you will need to complete your door installation. The set are hand forged in a heavy grade of steel, before being aged and then finished in an antique black beeswax finish. All of the components in the set are substantial and add a real touch of class to your door.
All of the items in the kit have been designed to our specification and upgraded from what we found was available “off the shelf”. The hinges are specifically designed to cope with the weight of our solid oak doors. Rather than the normal single barrel construction, we upgraded the hinges to a twin barrel design. The result is an immensely strong hinge that will not sag over time even under the weight of oak doors.
The thumblatch was increased in size and weight so that it was an appropriate quality. The latch is supplied with both a keep for the door frame as well as a locking pin to provide a simple locking function for bathroom or bedroom doors for example.
All of the screws needed to fit the set are included in a matching beeswax slotted dome head in a good thick screw gauge. We believe that these are the best quality hand forged kits for ledged doors on the market today
