Joinery Manufacture

We have produced specific door hardware designs for the Joinery Industry many of which have been produced alongside the involvement of the manufacturers themselves.

Smyth Group joined The Joinery Network in order to influence design alongside other industry suppliers and manufacturers, we test all our designs throughout the R&D process. We look at how our designs work with locking systems and tolerances. We work in Brass, Bronze, Iron and Stainless Steel, each is corrosion tested. We are currently developing new industry finishes that are unique within the industry.


Our partnership with BJ Waller Ltd brings us closer to Architects, our products and design plan is structured towards this sector.

Working alongside The Joinery Network’s Lignum range of tested joinery PAS24 2016 Part Q means we can specify our hardware alongside the most comprehensive range of certificated joinery drawings in the industry, giving Architects not only peace of mind from an Architectural stand point but also a unique offering to the client many of which will be unaware of the details we have added into our offerings.

We are working closely with many industry organisations to provide unique and innovative ideas for hardware, secured by design and meeting and ever growing demand for design led products.

Interior Designers

Over the years we have worked on some truly prestigious projects both in the UK and around the world. Smyth Group was created to utilise its impressive relationships within the hardware industry. We now have the ability to provide bespoke designs based on particular projects and styles, we can offer beautiful hardware designs in many materials and finishes professionally specified and supplied through ourselves or BJ Waller depending on the project.

We are happy to visit Interior Design studios to present our range of hardware styles and finishes giving your client a truly bespoke service.

Builders & Developers

The natural link we provide between each industry sector has taken many years to create, Builders and Developers are also a major part of who we work with.

Having BJ Waller alongside us means we can tender certain products through Architects and Interior Designers for use with builders and developers.

We often liaise with all sectors involved with a build or refurbishment showing samples at an early stage for the clients to approve.

We attend build shows around the country, working with local authorities regarding Joinery compliance on new build and refurbished homes.
