Restoration Ironmongery

Original and replica hinges - Original shown on leftSpecialising in the refurbishment and repair of old locks and ironmongery MBL has helped restore many historic buildings to their former glory. It is important to retain as much of the original fittings and ironmongery as possible when restoring an historic building. This ensures the original design is preserved, maintaining the period style of the building.

At MBL we have the necessary skills to ensure antique locks; keys and other ironmongery remain in use for many years to come.

Please have a look at our projects pages for examples of our work.

Replicating the past

Where the original parts are missing or beyond repair, we are able to design and manufacture bespoke replica ironmongery to match the original parts and retain or enhance functionality and security.

To complement this service MBL can supply a wide range of keys in steel, brass and bronze, which can be cut for the original lock and maintain the style and design of the piece.

Integrating modern security into old buildings

Security is an important consideration for historic buildings with high value contents. MBL restoration and replication solutions offer modern security features, which provide the highest level of protection, incorporated discreetly to maintain the integrity of style within the building.
