Just provide us with your floor plans and we'll prepare a detailed doorware schedule indicating where all the doors, door handles, escutcheons, locks, hinges, and other door hardware accessories are assigned in your new project. You can forward the schedule to your Tradesmen for ease of installation and the smooth completion of your project.

Address all your door hardware costing and security needs

As well as assisting with planning the right security, access control and keying systems,  this schedule can also form the basis for Value Engineering cost improvement and the estimation process to deliver the best value solution for your project. It means you don't have to revisit a project once the door hardware schedule has been drafted and assures maximum safety and peace of mind.

Finishing care

Finishing care

Perfectly matched finishes will give your interior design an extra special edge

Choosing a seamless finishing effect is critical to successfully bringing your interior design to life. We know first-hand, how even the smallest touch of color and texture can give your project an extra seamless design aesthetic and sense of unity.

Our Design Consultants can advise you on the finishes that will offer the best aesthetic and functional value for the application you've selected in consideration of the substrate, environment and usage scenarios. For example, if Polished Brass is required for commercial applications, we suggest using it without lacquer so it retains a new look when cleaned regularly.

Wide range of finishing options

We offer an extensive range of high quality finishing options, starting with standard finishes such as Polished Chrome, Satin Chrome, Polished Stainless Steel and Satin Stainless Steel, ranging through to an impressive collection of special finishes to give your project that extra special touch.

You can also match any interior design theme with an array of Powder Coated Colors and textures from quality paint brands such as Dulux, Interpon and Jotun. Just choose your preferred color and let us know when requesting a quote.

Product Supply

Product Supply

Supplying your new door hardware in an organized and secure manner

At Designer Doorware, we take great care in supplying and packing your order so that potentially expensive mix-ups, delays and risks are avoided, making sure a smooth and fast completion of larger projects in the most cost-effective way.

Streamlining door handle installation saves time and money

Working with you at the specification stage, we know on which door, in which room, each of our doorknobs and handles is to be installed. We pack your door hardware in such a way that it’s pre-allocated to the correct section, floor and door of the project upon delivery. This reduces unraveling and organization time, ensuring faster project completion, and that any discrepancies can be dealt with efficiently at the time of delivery.

Managing your door hardware deliveries with the utmost of care

Storing door hardware onsite can be risky, exposing Builders and Home Owners to the risk of theft and breakage. Why take that risk when you have a better option?

Using our specialized systems and procedures, we have the capability to manage the supply process from the first shipping to the last. We can manage a staged door pack shipping or part shipping of products during various stages of construction, including door-by-door, by floor, and/or by unit - whatever works best for your project!

With our expertise, you can be assured that your deliveries will be made with maximum efficiency and security. Generally, our products are available to be shipped between 2 days and 6 weeks depending on the complexity of the order. As an example: if your order is a stock item, it will be shipped in 2 days. If it is a customized product, it will take longer than 2 days.

Ensure your Architectural Hardware project is completed seamlessly

Designing and installing architectural hardware products can be very complex. It’s not as simple as just ordering some door handles, hinges and locks. Getting it right can be a complicated process.
