Why choose us?

We believe our 160-year tradition for producing handmade ironmongery, utilising the skills of our local workforce, gives Kirkpatrick products a style, authenticity and longevity that cannot be matched by less expensive, poor quality imitations.

It is a combination of our experience, expertise and dedication to producing ironwork of the utmost character which means that you will not find better quality or value anywhere else in the world.

Our heritage

Our heritage

Much of our black iron door and window furniture is based on patterns (designs) used by our foundry since its inception in the 19th century. Our workforce today uses essentially the same finishing and assembly techniques as back then, which have been handed down and refined through generations.

It’s this history which helps us create durable and beautiful ironwork products that have an integrity and authenticity which is second to none.

Our craft

Our craft

Each and every piece of our ironmongery is lovingly crafted by hand over a six week period, ensuring each door handle and window latch is unique and lovingly created to provide strength and quality which will last a lifetime.

Added to this, we react quickly and efficiently to our customer’s needs, and are able to produce new fittings that perfectly match the style and character of old buildings.

Our promise

Our promise

We keep most of our products in stock and aim to deliver within 48 hours. So if you’re trying to find a match for existing traditional ironwork or perhaps want to fit out a stylish new barn conversion, we’re sure to have what you need.

We can supply everything from door and window furniture to coat hooks and shelf brackets, but if you can’t find what you are looking for please get in touch as we are also able to create bespoke, one-off pieces to suit your exact needs.

Our authenticity

Our authenticity

All our malleable iron products are made under one roof at our Walsall factory – making us the only manufacturer whose products are genuinely British from start to finish.

We use malleable iron, because it is stronger and more durable than imported alternatives. This authenticity, coupled with the high quality of our products has made us recognised leaders in our field.

We’re proud to be the only traditional ironmongery manufacturer able to use the Made in Britain logo. Why buy a traditional British product steeped in history from India or China?

Our green creds

Our green creds

Although we are a traditional company, we’re always looking for ways to improve our efficiency and therefore our environmental impact – so we’ve invested in reducing our energy consumption which has helped us save 250 tonnes of carbon each year since we upgraded our processes.

Our factory emissions are minimal and regularly tested to ensure we comply with the Environmental Protection Act and as a result – our carbon footprint is lower than many of our competitors who use foundries in unregulated countries and whose products have been imported into the UK.

Our products do not cost the Earth!
