Featured product line: Latches

This week, the Cliffside blog focuses on one of our more popular hardware lines: our latches. We offer two styles of latches to suit any designers’ style.

The Ice Box Cupboard Latch, or IBCL, is a recent addition to our product line, and is offered in seven vibrant finishes. These pieces are relatively unique throughout the kitchen and bath industry, and are often hard to find or require a long lead time. Cliffside, however, has these items in stock and ready to ship as part of our signature hardware line. The available finishes currently include silver satin, polished nickel, old antique, polished chrome, polished brass, flat black, and old copper, with three new finishes to come with our new product lines arriving in early 2009.

With six holes aligned along the sides of the cast-brass surface, the Ice Box Latch is easy to install, is practical to use, and Cliffside offers the lowest prices in the hardware industry on products of this type! The design of the latch is inspired by the traditional ice box door handle and is secured to the door frame by a simple solid brass catch with a matching finish. Each latch also comes with matching screws. The thumb pull has an exceptionally smooth mechanism aided by a high-quality spring hidden inside the cast frame. This is a distinctively unique piece of hardware that adds a professional look to any door.

The Solid Brass Cupboard Latch, or SBCL, has been part of the Cliffside line for several years, but is nearly as popular as the new IBCL. This turn-style latch is sleek and stylish with a rounded knob and solid construction. It is currently available in five finishes, including polished chrome, flat black, polished brass, old antique, and silver satin. Five more finishes are coming soon, including Venetian bronze, old copper, iron, antique brass, and polished nickel.

Though this particular style of latch is much more common in the hardware industry than the ice box latch, Cliffside’s solid brass latch is priced competitively within the industry, offered at more than 30% off the comparable items sold by our competitors. This traditional-style latch is also an excellent way to keep your doors secured. Whereas a standard knob or pull is only used to open a door, latches keep your doors closed tightly, your belongings away from prying eyes.
