Traditionally used on a ledge and braced door, a suffolk latch set is a decorative door latch with a thumb shaped lever. When the thumb shaped lever is pressed down this operates a thumb bar which passes through the door, this lifts the latch bar on the opposite side causing it to open.
Our suffolk latch set is forged from solid brass which emphasises the high quality materials and manufacturing techniques used. A perfect design choice for internal doors with matching products available.
Thumblatches are usually used in conjunction with a tee hinge on traditional plank doors.
Maximum door thickness: 44mm.
Supplied with matching SS wood screws.
Made from solid unlacquered brass, this finish is both classic and simplistic and offers great possibilities for stately and period dwellings alike, particularly where a very traditional look is desired. When fully polished this finish has a depth of reflection. However, as the product is unlacquered this can also be left to age naturally, which over time will create a beautifully historic finish.
