Grandeur’s beauty is complemented by unmatched functionality. Easy and quick installation makes restoration or new construction efficient and exact. Solid brass knobs provide that “bank vault” feel missing in much of today’s hardware. Smooth, yet sturdy mechanics, achieved through demanding production tolerances, ensure silk-like operation. Simply turn a Grandeur knob or lever, and feel the difference immediately.

QUALITY FROM
THE START

Most companies use hollow brass knobs, zinc levers finished to look like brass, and glass instead of crystal. At Grandeur, we use solid brass knobs, the highest quality forging brass in all of our hardware and 24% lead-crystal knobs. Using the highest quality materials enables us to produce the finest quality finished products.

QUALITY BY
DESIGN

Quality is linked to the manufacturing process. Each step in our process has been designed and refined to provide the best possible quality. We forge from solid brass to minimize defects. We hand-polish and hand-finish every piece to ensure that a piece made today will match those we make years from now.

QUALITY FOR
LIFE

At Grandeur, we build our products to provide hundreds of thousands of worry-free cycles. So, while our locks are beautiful to look at, they also include features like spring-assisted knobs and levers, to make them robust. In addition, our locks are backed by the industry’s best lifetime warranty.

OUR FORGING PROCESS

Although some lock manufacturers use cheaper cast or stamped brass, Grandeur uses only hot-forged brass. This process yields a denser, stronger brass that can accurately display the intricacies of our beautiful, timeless designs. The photos below demonstrate (from left to right) how a solid brass billet becomes a finished piece of luxury hardware.
Step 1, Billet Cut to Size

CUT

We begin with a billet of special forging brass cut to size. The metallurgy of this brass is specifically designed to create strength and detail.

Step 2, Press or Forge

PRESS

We heat the billet in an electric furnace until it’s red-hot. Then, we press (forge) it into a tool the shape of the hardware. This process utilizes extremely high pressure to create very fine details.

Step 3, Trim

TRIM

After the brass has cooled, we trim-away the excess and recycle it into new billets. Each piece is inspected for even the most minute defects.

Step 4, Hand Polish

POLISH

Experienced craftsmen rough-polish each piece by hand, using progressively finer abrasives.

Step 5, Buff

BUFF

Final hand-buffing with rouge creates a mirror-like shine. For the Polished Brass (PB) finish, we then use an electrophoretic process to evenly apply the clear, durable coating.

Step 6, Finish

FINISH

Finishes like Vintage Brass (above), are aged and hand-relieved prior to electrophoretic coating.

EASY TO INSTALL

By keeping the homeowner in mind, we have kept things simple whenever we can. Our modern tubular latch is designed to be easily oriented to a door, even after it is installed. Deadbolts use the standard Schlage C-keyway.

Pre-Mounted knobs and levers, make for clean and easy installation. A floating spindle allows for minor trim alignment errors and we have eliminated problem parts such as exposed spindle springs that can jam, and set screws which can harm the finish durability of decorative trim and which often work themselves loose.

We take care of the details, so you don’t have to.
