Case Study

The Stanley House Hotel

Location: Mellor, Lancashire

The grade II listed Stanley House Hotel, situated in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire, is one of the North West’s premier hotel, spa and conference facilities. In March 2011, the hotel began work on the construction of 18 new bedrooms and a luxury spa. HAF International were chosen to carefully specify modern ironmongery to complement the beautifully designed interior, the finished results being a fine representation of the work carried out by the HAF team.

  • The specification called for polished stainless steel HAF ‘Wing’ levers with pull handles to match on cross corridor doors, with feature pull handles to the main area’s of the hotel.
  • For the feature pull handles we proposed the ‘Pod’ design from Philip Watts Designs, the client wanted an organic design and we felt this unique design best complimented the proposed interiors.
  • For the cross corridors we modified our existing ‘Flare’ handle with a milled scallop to tie in with the Wing design.
  • Reception to room corridors required access control to stop non residents gaining access, this again needed to be discreet so we specified Shearlocks and Solenoid bolts with accessories.

Specification detail continued:

  • Riser doors on the corridors needed to be as discreet as possible, so we utilised SOSS concealed hinges with a captive key budget lock to avoid having any surface fixed ironmongery.
  • Reception to room corridors required access control to stop non residents gaining access, this again needed to be discreet so we specified Shearlocks and Solenoid bolts with accessories.
  •  As well as conventional timber doors there were a number of frameless glass doors to which we supplied a floorspring with top & bottom patch fittings and ‘Pod’ handle.
  •  Cross corridor doors required electro-magnetic hold-open closers as wall/floor mounted door closers weren’t an option due to the aesthetics.
