Changing the face of a lock, and bringing it back from obscurity... James Bull have provided some excellent solutions to these challenges
Restoring the old, embracing the new
James Bull have provided some exceptional results where attention to detail is critical. Our team have refurbished, restored and in some cases recreated hardware items, ensuring they reflect the heritage of the building in every sense. Behind the gilt edged handles, and locks we have been able to integrate technology resulting in that perfect mix of old and new.
