Keyhole cover Escutcheon plate
Keyhole cover. You are looking at one of our escutcheon plates or keyhole covers. This is our oblong version.
The cover is manufactured in heavy cast iron .The plate is then coated with a matt black epoxy paint. This paint is very hard wearing so scratches and scuffs should be kept to a minimum.
Fixing screws are included with this product.
As this plate is surface mounted it is simple to fit. Please take care to fit centrally over the keyhole. this will ensure that the key does not bind when in use.
The plate is painted so it is suitable for both internal and external use.
The word escutcheon come from the Latin scutum meaning to shield, thus the plate protects the door lock.
We have many versions of these plates and we do add more, so it is always worth checking back on the site every now and again.
These key hole covers will go with our range of door knobs. We have two versions of these. They are both cast in heavy cast iron. The versions we have are either oval or round.
We have many other rustic and vintage items on our site. Please take a moment to have a look around.
