Inspired by the Gothic Revival movement of the mid 19th Century this handle will enhance the look of any door. Suitable for interior or exterior use, the Berlin Black finish creates a more austere, municipal look than the more widely used Antique finish. The backplate is longer than normal to accomodate 72mm centred euro profile cylinder locks in addition to standard sized mortice locks and latches. The un-sprung handle is suitable for heavy-sprung locks and latches only.
Select from the following backplate options:
Latch - without keyhole for mortice latches.
Lock - with keyhole for 3 lever and 5 lever mortice locks.
Euro Profile - with cut out for euro profile cylinder mortice locks at 47.5mm/48mm centres.
Euro Profile 72mm - with cut out for euro profile cylinder mortice locks at 72mm centres.
(Alternative euro profile centres are available - please contact us for details).
Manufactured from whiteheart cast malleable iron for durability, the handle is finished with a two part protective coating in Berlin Black making it an ideal choice for both historic properties and high quality new build projects where an authentic period look is required
This lever door handle is expertly and lovingly crafted in Britain by Kirkpatrick Ltd of Willenhall using only high quality materials. It should not be confused with the poor quality imitations available from other suppliers. As with all our Wealden Black Iron range, this product will remain highly decorative and functional for many years to come.
This lever handle set is un-sprung and relies on the lock/latch springing to keep the handle in the horizontal position. It should ONLY be used with locks or latches described as being "heavy sprung".
Use with mortice locks and latches having an 8mm square spindle hole (UK standard size). The spindle supplied will suit doors up to 100mm thick.
Berlin Black is a hard wearing, durable paint finish suitable for both internal and external applications in normal conditions. However, we DO NOT recommend this product for coastal areas or other harsh environments.
Lubricate immediately after fitting and periodically thereafter - at least twice yearly. Clean with an oil impregnated cloth to remove harmful deposits, especially when fitted externally.
One pair of lever door handles as described (2 handles, one for each side of the door) complete with through spindle and suitable slotted round head fixing screws for wood.
