Architectural Ironmongery

Architectural Ironmongery is the generic term for all door and window furniture. Kirkpatrick Ltd has been producing Architectural Ironmongery from its foundry in Walsall since 1855. Many of the items shown in catalogues dating from the 19th century are still to be found in the current ranges which are the largest of this type available anywhere in the World. In addition, Kirkpatrick Ltd is the only remaining UK producer of these traditional products.

Wrought Iron Door Furniture

Kirkpatrick products are often referred to as Wrought Iron. This is a common misconception. Our traditional ironmongery is manufactured from Malleable Iron which has an inherent toughness and durability which is lacking in other products.

Kirkpatrick Window Furniture is frequently referred to as Wrought Iron. In fact, it is manufactured from Malleable Iron using traditional methods which, in essence, remain the same as they have since 1855. Malleable Iron has an inherent durability and toughness which makes it ideal for the manufacture of Iron Window Furniture.

Malleable Iron Fittings

Kirkpatrick Door and Window furniture is manufactured from Malleable Iron. When iron is cast it is brittle and cannot easily be drilled or hammered. Our annealing process causes a change in the structure of the carbon molecules within the iron products. After annealing they become malleable iron which is stronger and better suited to the production of Ironmongery than other types of iron.

Casement Window Fasteners

The Kirkpatrick range of Casement Window Fasteners is based on old traditional patterns like all of our Malleable Iron products. They have been developed and updated over the years to suit different tastes and also to meet more stringent security and insurance demands. However, they retain their authentic look and feel offering a product which is both functional and highly decorative.

Casement Window Locks

Many of our casement window fasteners now have a locking system built in to satisfy the demands of insurers and householders alike. These have been developed from our traditional products so that it is now possible to secure your windows and doors but still retain a period feel to your home.

Black Antique Ironmongery

Black Antique Ironmongery is at the heart of the Kirkpatrick range. It is extremely durable, highly decorative and it is manufactured in the UK. It is therefore much more environmentally friendly than similar, inferior ranges which are manufactured in the Far East.
