Total Hardware Solution

The hardware specified on the Adare Manor conservation and restoration project ensures a timeless hospitality experience describes their recent restoration project “as a love letter to architecture and virtuosity.” Attention to detail was paramount and their “passion for quality craftsmanship is evident in every repair and enhancement.” They considered the door hardware to be a key part of the restoration and that is why Harbrine’s Carrson International division was brought on board.

Carrson was appointed to provide a total hardware solution which included specification, hardware scheduling, supply and site co-ordination for the entire project. This included a bespoke solution to work with the Vingcard Essence guest lock system.

The hardware had to be in keeping with the historic environment, as well as being hard-wearing and beautiful with a distinct aesthetic all its own.

Solid bronze ironmongery from Sun Valley Bronze was therefore selected and used throughout the guestrooms, public areas, spa and golf club. Carrson believed that the handcrafted bronze hardware made in Idaho, USA was a perfect match for the neo-Gothic luxury hotel in Ireland. The final results speak for themselves, combining the modern with the classical to create a timeless hospitality experience.

While Sun Valley Bronze was used for most of the hardware, Carrson also worked on bespoke pieces with other manufacturers to complete the very specific needs of this, the grandest of hotel restorations.
