Silver Kite was asked to supply door fittings and electrical accessories from its Arbor and Classic ranges for a new-build family home located just outside Belfast.
• Door fittings
Arbor lever handles and door stops incorporate mahogany levers with an imitation bronze metal antique finish applied to the brass components.The handles were made with longer necks as the doors had a raised moulding and there needed to be sufficient clearance between the lever and the door. As all Arbor products are individually made by Silver Kite this was easily accommodated.
The bathroom turn-and-release sets were selected from the Classic range with the same finish applied to the brass parts, and were used to operate separate bathroom deadbolts.
Arbor floor-mounted door stops were used throughout the building and were made with the same combination of mahogany and imitation bronze metal antique finish applied to the brass components.
Hinges, locks and latches were also supplied, all finished to match the door furniture.
• Electrical accessories
Electrical accessories were also chosen from the Classic range, once again finished in imitation bronze metal antique and with square corners to the plates.
Switchplates from the Classic Series 4 range have square corners, and are finished in imitation bronze metal antique finish.
The dolly (or toggle) switches are finished in antique bronze, and the dimmers have control knobs finished to match the plates.
Power sockets incorporate metal switches finished in antique bronze with black plastic inserts.
