From The Anvil

Handsome Handles welcomed From The Anvil many years ago to our growing range of ironmongery products, here is what they have to say...

 

Home is the nicest word there is.

Laura Ingalls Wilder

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.

William Morris

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.

Jane Austen

 

Set amongst the mid-Wales hills and nestled close to the Welsh Marches, the heart of 'From the Anvil' beats on the edge of the town of Llandrindod Wells in Powys.

Our broad site houses a workshop, design hub, showroom, offices and warehouse with a vast stockholding enabling us to achieve swift delivery times and fulfil the requirements of a wide ranging client base.

Energised by the surrounding landscape, our strong team of creative and productive individuals offer a friendly and amenable service providing high quality, hand-made, functional ironmongery that promises to enhance both large and small building projects alike.

Observation, ingenuity and experience are all key to providing inspiration for product development.

Timeless classics with new contemporary twists are designed to top specification for ease of use, combing style with functionality.

Prototypes, competently produced from initial concepts and drawings, inform the manufacturing process for each item; while ranges of products in differing styles and finishes are developed to provide for continuity throughout a project.

Within the 'Anvil's' hand-forged range no two pieces are identical.

Each item is a unique yet functional work of art skilfully created by one of our master craftsmen.

Traditional methods of shaping the base metal, using fire and an Anvil, ensure that we retain both strength and beauty in the resulting products.

Many years of experience and a wealth of ingenuity has established 'From the Anvil' as an accomplished manufacturer of quality ironwork.

The manufacturing process of hand forging mild steel enables ’From The Anvil’ to achieve the strongest and most unique ironmongery available on the market with a focus on quality as products are honed to the highest specification.

2020 is setting up to be a year where we say goodbye to stainless steel, chrome, and polished nickel, and welcome satin brass accents back into our homes.

Heritage Brass - M Marcus

Handsome Handles welcomed Heritage Brass - M Marcus many years ago to our growing range of ironmongery products, here is what they have to say...

M Marcus

Heritage Brass is the widely recognised brand of M. Marcus Limited, one of the leading suppliers of architectural and electrical brassware in the U.K. M. Marcus was established over sixty years ago as a traditional brass founder, and from the very beginning it has been committed to quality both in its products and its customer service.

Since 1940's the company has grown consistently, and on the basis of good customer relations has established strong markets worldwide for its Heritage Brass brand. The high standards of quality widely recognised as hallmarks of Heritage Brass brassware have been achieved by continuous investment in personnel and equipment.

At the company's manufacturing facilities, elegantly styled hardware and electrical plates are produced using the latest equipment. This enables quality control to the highest standards at every stage. Accurate reproduction of beautifully created product features is guaranteed by close attention to tooling.

In addition to its commitment to continuous product development, the company places much emphasis on the need to maintain the highest levels of service to its customers. It has a fully computerised order entry and dispatch system and maintains high levels of product availability to support its network of distributors. Service to its customers is complemented by its ISO 9002 Quality Assurance Standard registration.

During the 1980s, we altered our manufacturing processes from traditional "Sand Casting", to the more accurate "Pressure Casting" and during the 1990s to "Hot forging", which is now our preferred method of production to maintain consistency in design and quality. During the 1990s we have also seen further changes in technology with the use of Robots to polish products which have for centuries been polished by hand.

Whilst "Hand Finished" has a nostalgic image, as far as quality of finish is concerned, robots polish consistently and accurately allowing us to set a quality target which can be maintained.

Durability of finish depends on the composition of the lacquer, and also its application.

When used externally, different environmental conditions (e.g. salt spray, humidity or pollution), could adversely affect the durability of the lacquer, however our experience shows that the lacquer coating may last from one year to a number of years, depending on the location.

For optimum durability we recommend our "Everbrite" process which carries a 25 year finish guarantee, and which is available on selected range of door handles and accessories.

Deanta Doors

Handsome Handles welcomes Deanta to our growing range of Door products, here's a little of what they have to say

 

Logo

 

As one of the UK’s leading internal door manufacturers, we deliver outstanding quality and original design throughout the UK.

 

Unlike most door suppliers in the UK, we manufacture all of our doors in our very own manufacturing facility. This not only allows us to control stock supply, but it also gives us full control of the quality control process to ensure every door that leaves our factory is of the very highest standard,

 

We ensure all of our doors are of the highest quality, so we only use hand-picked veneers from North America. All of our prefinished oak and walnut veneers are FSC certified  and feature solid cores, so you can ensure you’re buying the best by choosing Deanta.

 

Customer service is at the core of everything we do. We believe in developing long term, trusted relationships with our customers who are mostly door merchants – and to their customers – designers, architects and builders. That’s why they keep coming back to us.
