Your biggest range of suited cylinder pulls available from stock

Often it’s the little things which can make the biggest impact. Maybe you spend a lot of time and money getting the style and finish right on your door only to let it down with a poor-quality cylinder pull.

The cylinder pull may be the only part of your door which your customer touches – what does your cylinder pull convey about your door?

Are your cylinder pulls rusting and corroding and ruining the look of your door? Do your cylinder pulls bend every time your customer closes their door, giving a poor quality impression?

With our newly extended range of cylinder pulls you can now choose, not only from traditional or contemporary styles and finishes to match your door, but also from versions such as back to back cylinder pulls, security cylinder pulls, narrow profile cylinder pulls and so on.
