Knobs To Pulls: How To Customize
The Perfect Hardware For Home

By Heather Schreckengast


Good design is in the details. Details, like light switches, accent pillows and architectural hardware, not only play a supporting role to a home's overall design, but more often, become the defining moments that take a room or piece of furniture from so-so to sublime. Like the icing on a cupcake, the "jewelry" on doors and drawers adds the perfect finishing touch, and no one honors this more than Hamilton Sinkler, the premier architectural hardware maker.

Details Beyond Design

While there's total freedom in the design of Hamilton Sinkler's architectural hardware, the product specifications and shop drawings for each are anything but. As a value add for its customers, Hamilton Sinkler executes hardware schedules to ensure everything is clearly outlined and detailed, accounting for any variations in the door hardware based on code requirements or other field conditions. Simply supply a copy of the door schedule, the door elevations and jamb details, and its team will take care of the rest.
