Custom Hardware Door Handles

Whatís the first thing you think of when someone says Maine? Iím betting itís lobster. And if you are a company that was founded in and is based in Maine, why not go with the flow for your retail stores? L.L. Bean, known for their great outdoor products, needed to have some door handles created for their retail center so they contacted Scottsdale Art Factory to help them create something different. Itís not often we get requests for crustacean themed items, but our designers and blacksmiths were ready for the challenge.

Once the designers finished the plans and the company approved them, our master blacksmiths went to work. All of our door pulls are made by hand forging wrought iron; we never cast any iron here. Each of these lobster door pulls is made by the hands of our master blacksmiths, heated and hammered until it is the correct shape. Once the pull is the correct shape, we use an advanced patina finish to add color and seal the iron, making it practically maintenance free. Though these lobsters were made in a true iron finish, we have over 400 colors to choose from so feel free to have some cooked lobster at your home, even if it isnít on the table. Just pick up the phone and speak to one of our designers.

All our door hardware is custom hand crafted in American by master blacksmiths using old world techniques to create a treasured fine art furnishing for your commercial or residential project. We work with dealers, builders, home owners, and interior designs to create custom built door pulls, handles, and hardware. Built using solid metals - no castings or hollow faux metals - our designer hardware is available in any design, style, finish, and size. Customize your door hardware with heat applied iron oxide and finishes in over 400 colors. The choices are endless when you order your custom door handles from Scottsdale Art Factory.

Design Inspiration - L.L. Bean Company History

In 1911, an avid outdoorsman named Leon Leonwood ("L.L.") Bean returned from a hunting trip with cold, damp feet and a revolutionary idea. L.L. enlisted a local cobbler to stitch leather uppers to workmen's rubber boots, creating a comfortable, functional boot for exploring the Maine woods. This innovative boot Ė the Maine Hunting Shoe® Ė changed outdoor footwear forever and began one of the most successful family-run businesses in the country. L.L.Bean, Inc., quickly established itself as a trusted source for reliable outdoor equipment and expert advice.

When L.L. Bean started his company, his view of serving the customer was as revolutionary as his product. L.L. said, "A customer is the most important person ever in this office Ė in person or by mail." Whether seeking expert advice, purchasing goods, returning or exchanging anything from L.L.Bean, customers quickly learned L.L.Bean wasn't like other companies of the day. L.L. set the standard for customer service in 1912 and his service-based philosophy is a fundamental belief that resonates throughout the company today. (source: llbean.com)

Our Blacksmithing Is Not Welding or Fast Process - It Is the Best in the World

Blacksmithing is not casting (also known as drop forging or hollow cold roll) or other fast, fake processes. Our Fine Art Custom Door Pulls are created from labor intensive tried and tested techniques. Each custom pull is fired by coal and anvil hammered into shape by the hands of our master blacksmiths in our American factory in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. All of our Custom Door Handles are made from solid hand forged wrought iron with a natural patina (we never use faux paint or powder coating). Our Custom Door Hardware will arrive to you virtually maintenance free.

Available in any size, style, and finish, our Custom Door Pulls can be custom fabricated in any design you can dream up. Order from our online catalog of Custom Door Hardware, send in your own drawings or photos, or speak with one of our talented design engineers to get started.
