How to Select the correct hardware
When choosing hardware it is not always as easy as finding a handle you like the look (and feel) of and saying “That’s the one.” If you are building a new house and want everything to match you need to ensure that everything is available in the same style and finish to compliment each other. If you are renovating and working with old doors that you need to fit hardware on to you need to make sure what you like will work and if not is there a way around this. So read the relevant sections below for advice. If you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]://beyondhardware.co.nz
Round Rose Door Handles
Levers on a round rose come in 2 different sizes.
They will either require a 54mm hole drilled in the door or a 20-25mm hole(depending on the brand). The ones suitable for a 54mm hole have a rose approximately 63-65mm diameter whereas the smaller ones have a 52-55mm rose.
Generally the 54mm larger roses have the functionality of having the option of having a key lock incorporated in the handle. They will also have privacy, passage and dummy options. Handles with the 54mm hole are generally the cheaper option.
Handles on the smaller rose have the passage, privacy and dummy option. If you need a door to have a key lock then you can either add a separate deadbolt or a mortice lock to get the functionality required.
