Engineered Hardware

Hand forged items are individual products, with one being slightly different to another. This rustic effect is one of the desirable aspects of hand forged products. Not all home projects, however, lend themselves to this quirky individuality.

At Stonebridge Forge, the products are engineered to have consistent dimensions and centres. This makes them ideal for new builds or certain types of refurbishments where a precise consistency is required - either for aesthetic or practical reasons.

  • Each product begins as a sketched design which is then 3D modelled using the latest CAD software.
  • A metal tool is created into which molten steel ingots are placed before forging under high pressure.
  • The parts are assembled using a combination of manual and machine processes.

The metal tooling process provides accurate parts which ensures dimensions are accurate and consistent. This can be crucial for joiners when completing new builds and have a need for high quality products with the same measurements.

Armor-Coat® Protective Finish

Traditional hand forged hardware is usually not suitable for external use as the beeswax or pewter finishes do not provide protection against the elements. Rust is the main problem when considering hand forged items for external use.

One of the key differences that makes Stonebridge hand forged products stand above other products is the unique Armor-Coat® finish. All of the products in the Stonebridge Ironmongery collection are finished using this anti-corrosion coating.

  • Armor-Coat® is a trade mark coating unique to Stonebridge products.
  • Achieves BS EN 1670:2007 Grade 5 under laboratory testing.
  • The highest anti-corrosion level for steel based hardware in the industry.
  • Highest level of UV protection to protect against fading in sunlight and ensures the 30% sheen is long lasting.

Accoya® is the world's leading high technology wood and is used in many new builds and home renovations. See our blog Ironmongery For Accoya® Wood Doors & Windows for further information.
