Premium range

Hailsham-based trade fabricator Tradesmithhas added a new, premium range by specialist ironmonger From the Anvil to its hardware collection.

Tradesmith’shardware includesgreenteQ, Ultion, Sweet, Romatapola from the Residence Collection, Traditional Window Fittings, and Ingenious Locks.

The latest addition includes hand-forged matching handles, knockers and more in a variety of finishes suitable for period properties through to high-end contemporary new builds.

Tradesmith MD Mark Hutchinson said: “From the Anvil’s quintessentially beautiful, handmade hardware really allows installers to stand out from the crowd. The new range even includes hand-forged items for true character. Traditional methods of shaping the base metal, using fire and an anvil, means that each piece is a work of art; unique, but also offering strength, security and durability that match the highest specifications.”

Tom Underhill, managing director of From The Anvil, said: “The PVCU window and door market has changed a great deal in the last five years, with a shift towards colour foils, flush profiles and timber look products. Higher quality hardware can change the whole aesthetics of these products, adding an important profit margin for installers.”
