15 Inch Door Bolt
Traditional antique door bolt a rustic plain slide bolt with curled handle detailing and pre-drilled base plate. This vintage authentic wrought iron privacy lock is 15 inches in length and straight as opposed to cranked. This black bolt makes it more suited to bolting flush surfaces. See our old cranked bolts if your surfaces don’t quite line up. An antique long tubular bolt ideal for traditional doors and gates.
The cottage base plate of the bolt measures 38.5cm long by 5.5cm wide. The bolt itself is a heavy duty 2cm in diameter and features a scrolled grip extending to 4.5cm wide. This is a substantial bolt made from high-quality traditional materials to provide security for gates and doors in and around your home. Our wrought iron antique door bolt is individually hand forged, and so others will be similar but not identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a beeswax coating. All our hand-forged products are carefully aged. Once installed these products will look old and authentic.
We have found a small blacksmith shop that we are proud to say now forges these bolts for us. Our criteria for this blacksmith was that he must be skilled in his craft, But as important was his understanding of wrought iron and his passion for traditional forging crafts. We are very pleased with the results of his work and are happy to continue our relationship.
Once these bolts have been compleated they are given a beeswax coating. The beeswax coats the surface of the bolt by gripping into the tiny holes on the surface of the iron. These bolts are intended to look very old and authentic. The colour of the bolt will be back but it will have large areas of golden brown
Your delivery will include all the screws you need for fixing your bolt.
