Services

Project life-cycle support

Franchi has been supplying high quality Hardware over 45 years, with the Architectural Ironmongery Specification division servicing the additional needs of architects and designers since 1996. During this time, we have developed an ever increasing client base of architects, designers, contractors and other end users, who repeatedly use us because of the quality of our products and the service they receive. Franchi are able to offer a full end to end ironmongery package where every aspect of a project is supported, all the way from early concept and advise, through to specification and onto supply and maintenance.

Fully coordinated ironmongery packages

Franchi specialise in supplying ironmongery products where the design and finish can be applied across the package, creating a coherent aesthetic over the entire project. Our extensive knowledge of materials and finishes, as well as the development of a robust supply chain for ancillary products, allows us the unique position of delivering outstanding ironmongery packages to often limited budgets.

Ironmongery Scheduling Service

With an increasing emphasis on standards and performance, as well as full project design, the importance of professionally prepared ironmongery schedules has never been as high. Franchi’s experienced scheduling team are able to take the pain out of this process, ensuring a cohesive design whilst maintaining full compliance with the latest regulations.

Technical Consultancy

With in-house experts in access control, timber door- sets, glass doors, automatic doors, partitioning and ironmongery manufacturing, our technical consultants are able to advise on every aspect of door hardware across the full spectrum of trades and packages. Whether it’s face to face meetings or remotely, we’re able to give design advise and technical support from early design all the way through to completion.

Bespoke Design and Development

Franchi have developed flexible processes to aid in the manufacture of Bespoke ironmongery, from initial advice on design, through to prototyping and onto production. Our detailed knowledge of manufacturing techniques, materials and our experience with special finishes is why Franchi is now the preferred partner for designers and architects wishing to develop bespoke ironmongery to complement their projects.

Dedicated project management team

Franchi have adopted a proactive project management philosophy to the way we supply hardware, working in tandem with contractors to ensure the smooth delivery of projects. With dedicated project managers and robust management systems we’ve built a reputation for delivering complex and challenging projects on time and on budget.

On-site Technical Support

Franchi are able to complement our project management by giving on-site technical support, whether this is attending site meetings, talking through and resolving design issues or assisting in the installation of ironmongery. We can be on-site at this crucial time, quickly solving problems as they arise, helping to close out your projects.

Testimonials

What our clients say about us.

Project: Residential new build

“It's not just standard ironmongery. It is more like jewellery for the home”
Katherine Turner
I-D-LAB

Project: Oceanic House

“The interior décor design brief, lent itself to complex ironmongery requirements. Franchi rose to the challenge by providing fully-coordinated, complementary fixtures and fittings. This included a bespoke cupboard-knob that was customised to match pieces made from superior bronzed-brass. Throughout, the Franchi Specifications team set out excellent equipment schedules, which ensured there were no issues when it was time to do the fittings.”
Chris Phillips
BLDA Architects

Project: Gasholders, Kings Cross

“Our goal was to deliver a truly unique, residential building of exceptional architectural quality. To do this, the design team was asked to challenge every aspect of the design, from the entrance experience with its reflecting water feature to the bespoke, solid brass door handles. What they delivered, responded to our high expectations by doing exactly that.”
