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.

As we prepare for our new catalog and get ready to add a selection of completely new hardware items to our product line in 2009, we have many customers who call us asking for display boards. In this frame of mind, Cliffside has developed a new display board program.
With our new custom board program, your board is personal to your showroom, so there won’t be another one quite like it. Cliffside Industries will ship you an attractive display board embossed with our company logo, and you can design it with the hardware that you prefer.

Order your hardware directly from our office in Pennsylvania, and receive a 20% display discount on it. This applies to all of the hardware that we offer, including hinges and special order hardware!
