Featured suite: Scroll

The Scroll Suite is a collection of some of Cliffside’s most popular items. As with all of our solid brass hardware suites, it is made from high-quality material and available in our top ten signature finishes. Let’s examine the individual elements of this suite in closer detail.

Knobs

100 series knobs

When Cliffside Industries was founded over 23 years ago, it began with one item: the 100 knob in polished brass. From this one item, Cliffside has expanded to carry a variety of hardware styles, materials, sizes, and suppliers, but the 100 remains our top-selling piece. The standard mushroom-shaped knob has a 1¼” diameter and stands 1⅛” high. Constructed from solid brass, the 100 has a distinctive flat face, unique among many of the other round-faced knobs found in today’s kitchen and bath showrooms.

100-20 series knobs

The first two item numbers in this suite are similar for a very important reason: the 100-20 is simply the 100 knob’s baby brother. Standing just under ¾” tall and with a ¾” diameter, the 100-20 is perfect for applications requiring a space saver, like a pull-out cutting board, miniature drawer or door, or the front of a jewelry cabinet. It has all of the advantages and style of the 100 in 60% of the space.

105 series knobs

Following the same simple styling of the 100 series, the 105 is a oblong shape called by many names (egg, football, etc.). Whatever its moniker, it is still one of Cliffside’s top ten selling products, and has been around almost since the beginning. At 1¼” long and just under ½” wide, the knob is comparable in size to many others in the Cliffside signature line, though it is among the tallest at just under 1½”. The 105 also comes with small brads to aid in installation: when the piece is installed on the cabinet, simply insert the brad into the small hole provided in the back of the stem. The brad will affix the knob to the cabinet in the user’s preferred position (vertical or horizontal) and keep it from rotating if it should become loose.

Pulls

Scroll suite pulls in 3"cc, 8"cc, and 12"cc

All Cliffside hardware suites are defined by their pulls and this one is no exception. The SP series pulls are available in 3 sizes — 3″cc, 8″cc, and 12″cc (all sizes shown). Each one features the same attractive  scrolled design in the middle of the pull. The grip height of the 3″cc model is ¾”, while the 8″cc and 12″cc designs share a 1″ grip height. Each pull is accompanied by decorative escutcheons or backplates, which can be used or discarded at your discretion. All of the pulls in this series are, of course, solid brass, which makes them heavier and more durable than competitors’ zinc, aluminum, or steel products.

Each hardware suite also features a unique cup pull. For the traditional scroll design, Cliffside chose the half-circle bin pull known as K4235. #5 on our list of top ten-selling items, the K4235 is our top-selling cup and an example of Cliffside’s classic styling. As with the standard pulls and all of Cliffside’s solid brass cups, it measures 3″cc. The K4235 is 3½” in overall length, with a height of 1¾” and a projection of ⅞”.

Accessories

Latches

Each Cliffside suite can be accompanied by the use of one or more latches. Cliffside offers two styles: the IBCL finger latch, and the SBCL turn latch. Each is cast from solid brass and will prove more durable in the long run than any similar products made of inferior materials. Cliffside also offers the widest variety of finishes in the industry for both of these products.

Hinges

Cliffside’s solid brass hinges are the perfect solution for matching an exposed hinge to your hardware. Made with solid one-piece construction, our hinges have been developed with the finest European craftsmen to bring you a product that remains unchanged over the years and continues to provide the high quality you deserve and expect. Cliffside currently offers six hinge styles, with a new seventh style arriving in early 2009. The BH2A hinge is available with our signature steeple finial (17 finishes), a ball finial (11 finishes), or no finial (11 finishes). Its larger counterpart, the BH3A, is available with its signature minaret finial in 13 finishes. The BH2A-NM non-mortise butt hinge has 16 finishes to choose from with the signature finial, and 11 finishes with a ball tip as well. The newest hinge style, BH3A-NM — a larger non-mortise hinge — will be available with the signature finial in 11 finishes coming in early 2010. Additionally, Cliffside offers two styles of offset hinges and two styles of armoire hinges to supply your cabinet construction needs.
