Part of our collection of heritage restoration hardware is one of the most comprehensive lines of window hardware in Australia. We offer fittings for all the major types of windows found in classic Australian homes.
Casement Window Hardware
Casement windows are windows that are hinged on the side and swing outside the house. Casement windows are commonly found in homes built approximately between 1915 and 1940, these home will usually be Federation, Edwardian or Bungalow design. Casement windows can also be found in homes as far back as the mid Victorian era.
They are available in both single and double window styles, double windows will either be rebated or have a mullion between the two windows (a piece of timber that separates them). For casement windows we offer casement stays, these are available in a sill mount or a side mount design in both a traditional look and telescopic models. We also offer casement window fasteners which are needed when a sill mount stay is used. When using a side mounted casement stay it holds the windows shut securely in the middle of the window, however when you are using a sill mount casement stay such as a telescopic casement stay then adding a casement fastener will help secure the window shut in the centre, otherwise if you push at the top of the window there will be some flex.
Sash Window Hardware
Another type of traditional window in Australia is the double-hung, or sash window, these are windows that slide up and down and are often operated by a rope and pulley system, or a sash balance. Sash windows are typical of Georgian (late 1700’s – 1830) and all throughout the Victorian period (1840-1900) (early, mid and late), they can also be found in Edwardian, Californian Bungalow, Art Deco and Post War (1940-1950) times. Sash Windows are also often used in newly built traditional homes such as French Provincial and Hamptons homes.
Awning and Hopper Window Hardware
If you are looking for reproduction window hardware you might be looking for a hopper or awning window catch. Awning windows are hinged up the top and are generally from homes built in the 1970’s. To latch these shut we have several awning window hardware such as spur catches and wedge fasteners. A similar type of window is a hopper window (typically in homes built in the 1960’s), these are hinged with a friction stay, we offer hopper window catches to latch these shut. Our range includes various types of catches that offer the same functionality as many homes already have one of these fittings existing and it can be easiest to replace with the same type of fitting.
Fanlight Window Hardware
Often found in heritage homes such as Mid & Late Victorian, Federation and Edwardian, fanlight windows are high windows above doorways, while usually called fanlight windows, they are also known as transom windows. For these types of windows we offer a range of fanlight window hardware such as fanlight operators, fanlight swivels and fanlight catches.
Add the finishing touches to any window in your home with our curtain fittings, we offer brass rods, curtain hooks, curtain brackets and more.
Locks & Latches
If you have an old-fashioned home, some of your door locks and latches might be worn out. We offer hundreds of models in different finishes and sizes to suit any door. In many older homes, a mortice lock was used in all doors, these are a great choice when you want to replace the lock as they are the same size, so you don’t need to fill the door to add something like a tubular latch. For standard modern homes regular interior doors use a tubular latch mechanism and low security bathroom doors use a privacy lock. We also offer Euro locks and deadbolts for your exterior doors for the security you need to keep your family safe.
If you have a heritage home, then you will find that our cast iron rim locks are reminiscent of the mid-late Victorian and Federation eras, and our brass rim locks are reproductions of rim locks found in Edwardian, Californian Bungalow and Federation homes.
