Lockwood Velocity Lever Handle Series
Door furniture is often overlooked when it comes to a spaces design and many times in the chaos of making a thousand different project decisions it can be seen as an afterthought. Yet, as the idiom says ‘the devil is in the detail’, and having the right door furniture to suit the overall design palette and intent should be a key consideration, after all, not only does it have to be practical, it has a tangible, physical interaction with its user and this often starts with what they see first.
Since its inception in 2010, the simple twist and tighten fixing method remains unchanged and has proved a real hit with builders, “We’ve used Velocity for eight years. It’s easy to install, saves times and we’ve never had to go back” says, Mark Waller from Waller Projects. The novel pre-assembled leverset allows easy and fast installation. The fact that there are no loose screws means you can’t lose anything. Painters (sub trades) can easily remove the leverset, paint the door and return the leverset – it’s that simple.
What has changed is the range of lever styles and finishes have grown to meet the ‘detail’ requirements of many projects. It now boasts over ten contemporary lever styles to enhance and help express the wide array of residential interior designs. The Velocity series also features the Urbo and Malta lever ranges to seamlessly complement popular exterior joinery hardware finishes.
The Velocity series encompasses robust design and product quality. All with an unobtrusive rose design featuring hidden fixings and adorned by an array of modern lever shapes.
The Velocity Series includes passage sets for connecting doors, privacy sets for bathroom and toilet doors and dummy half sets for use on cupboard and wardrobe doors where a consistent styling is desired. In addition to the chrome finishes there is also a matt black powder coat option. Accompanying the original 63mm rose is the smaller 55mm rose series for a sleek architectural look.
After a decade on the market the Lockwood Velocity series has grown from a niche product to a versatile offering that designers and their clients can confidently specify for its robustness, style and cost-effective price.
