The hardware on your house – the door latches, window catches, even the pulls on the cabinetry – is like the jewellery that sets off an evening dress. Sourcing just the right item can make all the difference.
Chant is a 100% New Zealand-owned architectural hardware manufacturer with a point of difference. In business since 1996, the company designs and makes a variety of high-quality products for residential, commercial, and marine fit-outs, says managing director Graham Chant.
"Working with architects, designers, specifiers and homeowners, we are able to collaborate on the technical design, crafting and overall aesthetic of our products.
"Our skilled designers and artisans use the best materials available and deliver precision results – factors that have earned us a strong loyal following in the building industry over many years."
Chant can customise and personalise products to align with a particular project, whatever the scale.
"We possess the refined design skills, engineering know-how, and production capability to deliver bespoke, matching product for any project."
Chant offers everything from elegant front door handles and multi-directional window fixtures, to sleek cabinet pulls that are a pleasure to touch. Detail elements such as stair rail fixings and door stops are also available. The project shown here has hardware with a textured brass surface that sets off the look of the home.
"We are proud of our innovation and what we have achieved over the past 15 years. In that time, we have created many new and exciting product ranges and the feedback from clients has been fantastic. It's because of the market's demand for flair and quality that we've forged ahead in so many ways," Graham Chant says.
