What is Architectural Hardware?
Architectural hardware as a term refers to the products that are designed, manufactured and installed enabling movement in, around, as well as for use within buildings of all shapes and types. It encompasses more than ‘Ironmongery’ which typically refers to products manufactured for fitting on to doors, with the most familiar pieces of architectural hardware being handles, locks, plates, signage, and hinges.
