An example of a bathroom set. Using one of our Bathroom Conversions, we can adapt any of our BROLITE Bakelite sets (without a keyhole) to suit a turn and release to bathrooms, showers, toilets or indeed anywhere you require privacy.
Please see our conversions: DFBO6005PCP for the chrome finish. From here you will be able to select other finishes. So please place your order for the style of knob/lever handle and the plate style and the bathroom conversion in your desired finish and we will fulfil your requirement. You will need a bathroom lock in the door: Product code for our quality bathroom lock is: HWSE133663SCP or: HWSE133763PCP for a basic bathroom lock.
All our BROLITE real Bakelite pieces are based on original designs from early to mid-20th century and unusually, all our door knobs & handles are interchangeable on all of our Bakelite back-plates. A luxury which gives a huge number of combinations to choose from. If you are unable to see the combination you are after, you can order the parts individually to make up your desired set.
A pair of vintage-style real Bakelite Art Deco lever handles complete with Art Deco back-plates to suit a bathroom lock. The chrome finished thumb-turn and emergency release look superb and suit a "Bathroom Lock".
This bathroom version is a special conversion that we carry out in our workshops for you so please allow a week or two so for this.
Pairs of handles or knobs are complete with a 5/16" (7.9mm) square spindle so they should fit some old locks as well as new ones. You may have a 7.6mm spindle in the old lock, in which case the square hole in the lock can be filed out to 7.9mm with a sharp square file. The necessary slotted grub screws for the spindle and slotted wood screws for the plates are also supplied.
BROLUX by Broughtons.
Bathroom door knob set. Complete with turn for the inside of the room and a release to suit a coin or screwdriver for then outside of the room. Essential for emergency releasing of the door. (choice of finishes to complement your other fittings)
Not since the 1930’s have these (what were) PERMAX patented Bakelite door handles and door knobs have been available as new. We at Broughtons have carefully modelled our BROLUX pieces on the original early 20th century PERMAX. These incorporated a very clever brass flange that allows the knob (or handle) to be secured to the back-plate without the need for the usual grub screws. (We think this is a sort-of luxury not to need the grub screws to attach the knob or lever handle to the spindle. This gave us the idea to use the name Brolux)
Please note, the BROLUX collection is not interchangeable with BROLITE. As far as we know, PERMAX only produced one style of backplate with a matching door knob or lever handle. We are producing these fabulous pieces in Walnut or Black and are offered in the form of individual parts or sets. Sets can be pairs of door knobs, or lever handles or in fact a combination of the door knob and lever handle (Combo sets). This principal gives you knuckle clearance with the lever handle on the outside of the room and (maybe) a more attractive door knob for the inside.
Also available are with or without the keyhole (Lock or latch) versions.
Pairs of door knobs or handles are supplied complete with fixing screws, two brass flanges, screws to complement the look and a plain 6" x 5/16" spindle.
The 5/16" (7.93mm) spindle should fit some existing locks as well as new ones which are 8mm. If the spindle supplied is too large to suit your old locks you will probably have an old lock that was designed for a 7.6mm spindle. You will need a sharp square file to enlarge square hole of the relevant part in the lock (called the lock follower) that the spindle passes through to increase it to 7.9mm.
For a suitable bathroom lock, as an example see: HWSE0608PBU3 which is a 3" deep version.

Reviewer: Rebecca Sansom-Smith
The product seems v robust and works well with my reconditioned doors. I will be buying more as refurbish more doors. It does need the spring cassette though and my installed did not fit this (my mistake!)
