Architectural Components Ltd is a family owned business established in 1965 to specialise in supplying high quality door, cupboard and cabinet knobs and handles, as well as window hardware.  We swiftly became London’s leading supplier of British made door furniture, making sure architects, interior designers, builders, property developers and home owners could find the highest quality at competitive prices.  We branched out over the years and also supply a comprehensive range of bathroom accessories and fittings, kitchen mixer taps, door closers, grilles and vents, shelf brackets and domestic security products and more.  We are adamant in offering superior British or European made products with superior finishes.  We know that cheap imported alternatives are available, but in the end these products, with their inferior materials and finishes, are no bargain, lacking the durability and longevity of domestic and European products.  We are pleased to work with Samuel Heath and Sons as one of our major suppliers, thereby ensuring that we can offer the high quality products that company is known for.  There is a great deal to choose from on our website, but we are aware that everyone has different requirements, so we are very happy to work with you by email or on the phone to make sure you get exactly the product you are after.  We recently moved to a new larger showroom, called Locks and Handles, near Fulham Broadway Station and welcome your visit, where you will see even more of the vast range we have available.

Care of Brass, Bronze and Iron Finishes

Different materials require different cleaning regimens.  Also, environmental conditions play a part, so products fitted externally need their own special forms of care.  On our website we offer comprehensive advice on cleaning internal brass and bronze fittings, as well as polished and satin nickeled finishes and stainless steel.  We advise on the care of external finishes, such as brass, unlacquered  brass, bronze and plated finishes, as well as antique black iron.  Have a look on our website for care tips.
