First impressions count, so make a good impression with high-quality exterior ironmongery and door hardware. But, whilst improving the aesthetics of the door, it is also important to remember that your hardware needs to be practical and durable enough to cope with being used every day – which is why here at Toolfix, we stock only the highest quality products designed to cope with demanding projects and tried & tested by the industry.
EXTERNAL DOOR FURNITURE
External Door Furniture relates to anything fixed to the door such as handles, knockers and letterplate. It is important to make sure that for your front door (or other external doors such as patio doors) you choose exterior door furniture that has been designed and tested to cope with extremes of weather.
Door Furniture is available in a variety of styles and finishes. From modern designs in chrome or satin stainless steel, to traditional brass door hardware for a certain old-fashioned elegance. Black cast, wrought iron and pewter ironmongery is also widely available for those looking for a rustic, country cottage style.
The handle is the most heavily used component fitted to a door, a key feature which is often chosen first and forms the basis to choosing complementary exterior door furniture. Therefore, apart from choosing a style, it is important to choose quality ironmongery that is both highly durable and practical. Residential styles range from lever locking handles on a backplate or rose, to espagnolette handles to suit multi-point locking systems. Commercial doors typically opt for large pull handles or push plates.
Door Knockers & Bell Pushes
Be alerted when someone calls by opting to fit a door knocker or bell push. We stock a variety of styles and finishes from traditional brass to sleek modern stainless steel.
Cutting a hole in your door might allow the postman to deliver your letters without disturbing you, but you’ll need to install a letterplate in order not to compromise the thermal qualities and security of your door. We stock a wide range from individual external letterplates and internal letter tidy’s, to fully weathersealed sleeved letterplates.
Ensure visitors come to the right house by fixing your house number to your front door. Available in many styles and finishes to complement the rest of your door furniture.
Escutcheons & Cylinder Pulls
Help to protect the lock cylinder and protect the surrounding area by fitting an escutcheon. Cylinder pulls can also be fitted around cylinder and rim locks to make it much easier to open and pull doors closed – especially on doors with no handles fitted.
Upgrading the external door furniture on your front door will undoubtedly improve the aesthetics of your entrance but you shouldn’t neglect your other exterior doors such as patio doors or french doors. Even stable doors, popular as a back door where the top half can be left open allowing plenty of fresh air into the home while the bottom half remains closed, can benefit from high-quality hardware. We can supply a wide range of ironmongery to suit your project requirements.
We also stock a large range of ironmongery and hardware suitable for more commercial applications. Our INVOKE designer series range offers everything from pull handles and push plates to panic hardware and signage.
Here at Toolfix, we have all the exterior door furniture you’re likely to need, so why not browse our range and keep the door to your home safe, secure and stunning.
