Door Handles

All lever door handles supplied by Gradans Architectural Hardware are from companies that we have dealt with, for over 5 years, at our triple fronted retail showroom in Gidea Park, Essex. The main source of all ironmongery within this site is The Carlisle Brass Group, THE market leader within our industry. Subsidiaries of Carlisle group include, Eurospec Architectural, Finger tip design, DeL’eau Bathroom accessories, Delamain, Ludlow foundries, steelworx and Serozzetta. Lever handles can be used with any size latch or lock, depending on the design of door and the door stile size (See technical information for more details regarding this). Finishes available include polished brass, satin and polished chrome, satin and polished stainless steel, antique brass, and many more. The Steelworx range of un sprung stainless steel is the strongest and most robust available and by using the square shank back to back fixings that are supplied, it is ideal for schools or hospitals or any situation where abuse of the door furniture may take place. Also many designs are DDA compliant if required. Used in conjunction with the Easi-T range of lock cases, the Enduromax hinges and easi-exit panic hardware, a complete range is available from Gradans Architectural Hardware.


Door Knobs

Door knobs are available in either mortise version (to work with latches, locks etc) for interior doors, or bolt through version usually used on bedroom or kitchen units. The mortise version has an 8mm square spindle and can be operated from both sides of the door. When using door knob furniture, it is particularly important that a minimum of a 57mm back set (The distance from the edge of the door to the centre of the 8mm square spindle) is used to avoid the knocking of your knuckles on the door stop, when operating the knob. See Gradans Architectural Hardware technical information for further help regarding this. Door knobs are available in several styles including Georgian, Regency, Victorian, Edwardian, And Contemporary. Finishes available include polished brass, satin and polished chrome, satin and polished stainless steel, antique brass. The stylish cut crystal knobs are a favourite and with competitive prices we are cheaper than other sites (prices taken 9th October 2008, Including, Designer, handles4doors etc).
