This heavy Octagonal Mortice or Rim Knob Set is solid cast, not hollow which gives it a solid look and feel. It is available in Beeswax, Black or Pewter. There are also 2 sizes to choose from, Small being particularly suitable for internal doors and the Large giving a real statement to front doors and oversized doors.
Designed for use with either mortice or rim locks, this set comes complete with a pair of knobs and two open escutcheons. The loose roses are fixed with concealed screws to improve appearance and the knob is secured using a GRUB screw, which must locate in the the 'V' on the shaft and not the threaded part of the spindle. The spindle supplied will accommodate a door, or door and rim lock thickness of up to 60mm max.
Black Finish - this traditional satin black is baked in a high-temperature oven giving it an attractive, durable and corrosion-resistent finish. The finish is low maintenance when used internally, if used externally it will require more. In all cases we do recommend that it is wiped with a lightly oiled cloth periodically. This will help to remove surface dirt and restore it back to its original condition. This finish has been salt tested to 480 hours, which meets grade 5 British Standard.
Beeswax Finish - is the most authentic finish for steel. When the highly skilled blacksmiths have finished forging the colours left in the steel range from blue to deep red ochre. To preserve these beautiful colours and texture they are finished with just pure beeswax. You will need to apply a good quality natural beeswax periodically to maintain the subtle, matt richness of the metal and provide the protection it needs. For INTERNAL USE only. Some surface rust may occur with time, this can be treated with 00 grade wire wool followed by a light coating of beeswax.
Pewter Finish - is elegant and beautifully highlights the texture of the steel. It is equally suited to contemporary homes as well as period properties. The unique process runs deep into the metal resulting in wonderful contrast of texture and colour. This finish has been salt tested to 480 hours, which meets grade 5 British Standard. It has excellent anti-corrosive properties, but we do recommend that you wipe it with a lightly oiled cloth from time to time to remove harmful deposits and maintain its original condition.
Never use any form of metal cleaner or aerosol spray.
The door knobs are Unsprung, so we recommend that you use Heavy Duty / Heavy Sprung lock or latch. So that you don't catch you hand on the door frame we also recommend that you use a lock or latch which is at least 100mm, to give you a backset of 75mm or more.
