Picking the exterior hardware for your new home or home renovation project can be equal parts exciting and daunting. With so many styles to choose from, how are you supposed to decide? HardwareSource makes the decision an easy one by only offering the highest quality door pulls and hardware. Our selection of exterior door pulls runs the gamut when it comes to base materials and finishes, so not only will you never have to settle in terms of quality but you're also going to love the way the finished product looks. Whether you are looking for large door pulls to complement a grand front entryway or round door pulls to add a simple touch of charm, we have all your needs covered right here!
We keep our selection of door pulls stocked with a wide variety of classically styled handles that would do any traditional home justice and add a tremendous amount of visual appeal to the exterior of your old-fashioned home. Many of the large door pulls we carry are either made of iron or they mimic the appearance of wrought iron with a textured surface. Iron has been a reliable choice for the last several centuries for a good reason. Iron is extremely durable, which means that it will be able to last you for many years. Plus, the durability of iron means that it is ideal for fixtures that may be frequently used. Steel is another solid choice, because it is corrosion-resistant and holds up well in harsh environments.
Dummy exterior door pulls are ideal for where only a pull is needed without actual operation. Our bean-style dummy handle matches our bean-style thumb latch, strap, hinges, and dummy strap hinges, so you can create a complete set for your entryway. If you are looking for more of a modern solution, look no further than our stainless steel pull. This sturdy pull is recommended for redwood, cedar, vinyl, and ACQ (treated) lumber. Our decorative heavy door pull is a great choice for any gates or doors that could use a little embellishment or added elegance. We also carry solid bronze door pulls that are perfect for doors and gates in coastal areas. Bronze is an old-world material that does not deteriorate and its living finish will age gracefully over time. We can even special order these pulls to be mounted back-to-back.
With an assortment of round door pulls made of resin or steel, you can add to the dramatic look and feel of any space. Some advantages that resin offers over metals and other materials is that it is lightweight, resistant to rust, and relatively maintenance-free. These round door pull handles will last you a lifetime! Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. You can call, email us, or chat online with a representative while you shop.
Single Acting: Single acting hinges swing in one direction. Double Acting: Double acting hinges swing in both directions.
Plain Bearing: Plain bearing is the simplest type of bearing. They are a good low cost option for lightweight doors. Ball Bearing: Ball bearing hinges have ball bearings to act as a buffer between the knuckles. They tend to be quieter and more durable than plain bearing hinges. They are recommended for heavy doors and doors fitted with closers. Roller Bearing: Roller bearings are able to support very heavy loads. Many of our heavy duty gate hinges are equipped with roller bearings.
Face Frame: Face frame cabinets have a “frame” that attaches to the front of the cabinet. The face frame gives the cabinet box extra strength while adding dimension to the door fronts. Face frame cabinets are commonly made by American cabinet manufactures. Frameless: Frameless cabinets do not have a face-frame, and instead rely on thicker side panels for strength. Frameless cabinets are very common in Europe, but have steadily been making their way into America, as they lend themselves well to contemporary and modern designs.
The center to center is the distance from the center of one screw hole to another. Most manufacturers use this measurement to identify the size of the pull.
