Gallery - Door latch mechanism in genuine wrought iron
Every component in this mechanism was hand forged
We are used to our customers telling us how good the ironwork we have forged for them looks. The customer who we made this door furniture for was the first to tell us how good our ironwork sounds!
Every single one of the components in this door latch mechanism was forged by hand. As you can see, the skills of the blacksmith are as much concerned with detail and accuracy as they are with strength and power. This latch mechanism is linked to a matching handle on the outside of the door. When the handle is turned, the latch is raised and released from the latch keep, allowing the door to open.
