The market has seen a soar in demand for steel style doors, say Coastal Group.

This sleek design originates in the 1800s, but the industrial styling has been given a renaissance in recent years and is now used to make a statement of slender elegance on bifolds, external doors as well as internal screens.

Perhaps best known as Crittall® or in heritage style in the UK, these doors can be categorised by minimalistic slim frames to allow light to flood in and brighten up contemporary and classic properties. In order to best capture this feeling of elegance, Coastal Group believe steel look doors must be partnered with statement hardware that mirrors the craft and quality of the doors themselves.

Details matter
“An architect recently told us that ironmongery is like a stunning brooch on a perfect black dress, playing a critical role in pulling the project together” comments Managing Director Loren Jenner “as the key touchpoint for all occupants and visitors, hardware creates the lasting impression of the quality of the door itself”.

Coastal Group outlines two designs proving especially popular in embodying the style and elegance required for steel door applications, the Mitre and Opera lever door handles.
Whether it’s the warmer hues of PVD Satin Brass or the sleek PVD Satin Black finish that catches your eye, both the Mitre and Opera handles feature solid stainless-steel levers to convey the reassuring feeling of quality on the touch, comments Coastal Group. Key benefits of the lever handles outlined by Coastal include:

– Beautifully crafted from the finest 316 Marine Grade Stainless steel
for exceptional corrosion resistance.
– Durability tested to grade 7 (200,000 cycles).
– Dual Sprung – Suitable for multipoint door locks.

Quality from front door to back
Another important feature requested by customers Coastal find is the capability for door handles to be suited with other door and window furniture, creating a high-quality matching aesthetic from front door to back door.

“An exceptional entrance doesn’t end at the front door, our homeowners are increasingly seeking hardware that maintains a consistent character that will bring the project to life” comments Marketing Manager Neil Jones.

Coastal says their lever handles can be perfectly suited with matching escutcheons, window espagnolette handles and used on both external doors as well as internal screens, making a lasting impression on your steel style door projects.
