Forged Iron from Bavaria.
A family run smithy, going back three generations and 100 years, produces these ironmongery items. The firm has been specialised for more than 20 years in the handmade production of iron door and window fittings while keeping an eye on contemporary assembly processes. For instance, the blanks used as a basis for the fittings are precision produced in series with the aid of computer guided lathes and laser cutting technology. Then the actual forging is done by hand, exactly as it has been for the last 100 years. Only then, with hammer forging, are the individual pieces completed in the skilled hands of a trained blacksmith. Both colour and surface texture are determined to a significant extent by the forging temperature. After cooling the door handles are painted using a special process which protects them against corrosion, sufficient for all indoor use. For use outside, the door fittings only maintain their finish with continuous treatment.
