Door Ancillary Items
Those extras that create your statement centrepiece and turn functionality into a finished article
This conventional bolt is available as standard up to 300mm wide (longer, up to 914mm, by special order) and they are usually 20mm wide. Aesthetically appealing and low profile by design they are traditionally one of the most popular bolts available but by their lever action, they tend to weaken the door due to the deep mortice required which is often near the tenon or dowel joint.
Contemporary Surface Bolt
Popular, good looking and easy to fit. Supplied with 3 options of keep (staple keep, mortice plate, angled mortice plate) suitable for both inward and outward opening door sets. The substantial bolt cross section provides security and peace of mind.
Mortice Door Rack Bolts
Available in both 32mm and 57mm backset this popular unobtrusive yet secure bolt has a variety of uses. Often used on French doors instead of flush bolts, on sliding doors or to join the two halves of a stable door. Our oval turn knob is available to make this easy to use instead of the traditional and sometimes inconvenient fluted key.
This is a trade term for a low-profile slide bolt. Toolfix stock several versions of this. Some of these will fit in a standard 16mm/13mm eurogroove and do not require any extra depth of mortice to allow the bolt to operate. It would normally replace a conventional flush bolt and as its dimensions are smaller it easily fits into rebates that a flush bolt is either oversize or are not suitable for. Keeps for these bolts include our offset circular mortice keep. This allows easy adjustment of the bolt by twisting the keep in situ to bring optimum pressure on the draught seal.
Further bolt options in our range of Door Ancillary Items include locking flush bolts, our 2-point bi-fold flush bolt, decorative Dutch door bolts and other ornate versions from our traditional blacksmith inspired ranges.
