Over 25 years’ experience helping you curate your project

We have been providing elegant handle solutions for over 25 years, and designing and making our own hardware for almost two decades. The team can provide everything from quick images to full door by door schedules, quotations and everything in between.


We know hardware from start to finish, and everyone in the team is trained to help you get what you want for your project whether you are an industry professional or building your first home.


We have over 200 products in our range, and we pride ourselves on making unique and beautiful solutions to hardware challenges. With most styles available in 12+ finishes, we’re sure to have what you need from front door to back.


Our scheduling service is quick and free of charge, so you know you will be getting exactly what you need to fit your budget.


Sometimes hardware can be hard! We are happy to facilitate virtual walk throughs wherever your project may take you, or in person site visits depending on your location.
There is more than meets the eye when it comes to the art of door handles.

In this video Director Tanya Rive explains the myriad of technical and aesthetic considerations that must be taken into account to attain perfection.

How we approach your project

For architects, designers and owners we can create mood boards and provide reference materials and samples for key presentations to aide decision making.

When we write a schedule and provide a quotation, we will have worked through your floor plans (door-by-door and room-by-room) for complete peace of mind. Once decisions have been made, we will provide you drawings, technical installation guides, and expert help so you can get things right.

It's a team effort

When there are a lot of stakeholders in the mix, our project managers can take care of the detail and bring experienced recommendations to the table.

It takes a team to complete a build and we work with installers and builders onsite as projects reach their critical phases. For us, a sale isn’t complete until our hardware is working. If an onsite visit is required and achievable we will endeavour to make it happen.

frequently asked questions

Welcome to our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). If you have a question that isn’t answered here, please contact us.

Hardware can be complex! The best way to decide on your hardware is to have a look at what you like on our website. Halliday + Baillie can provide style and finish options, work with you to decide the best items for your look, function, and budget, then put together a comprehensive door by door hardware schedule and quotation based on your choices.

Halliday + Baillie have showrooms in Auckland, New Zealand, and Mebourne and Sydney, Australia. We also have a number of merchant dealers around New Zealand, and Australia, that retail and display our hardware. We have a main distributor on the East Coast of America, and have selected ​​dealers across ​North America and Canada where you can view a range of our products. For clients further afield, we have distributors in England, Denmark, and can supply hardware across Asia. For your nearest stockist, please call or email us or check the stockist’s page for contact details.

Hardware is made from a range of base metals, which can be finished in various ways. Base metals include aluminium, bronze, brass, stainless steel, and zinc. Finishes can be applied to these metals by ageing existing base metals, anodising, plating, or powder coating. The Halliday + Baillie, FSB, and Turnstyle ranges of hardware all come in a range of material and finishes to compliment your designs. All Halliday + Baillie hardware data sheets state the base metal and all finishes available for each item.
Halliday + Baillie hardware is proudly designed and made in New Zealand, supporting New Zealand craftspeople and expertise. FSB and Simonswerk hardware is made in Germany and imported exclusively by Halliday + Baillie for New Zealand and Australian projects. Turnstyle design is made in England including hand stitched leather finishes, and again imported exclusively by Halliday + Baillie for New Zealand clients.

Halliday + Baillie make all of our H&B products in New Zealand, and we endeavour to keep all standard finishes in stock. This includes satin chrome, brushed nickel, and powder coat black and powder coat bronzes. We also hold limited stock of other finishes. For custom colours, or where stock is temporarily unavailable, we have a lead time of approximately 4-6 weeks. Please contact us for larger bulk orders as these may also attract additional lead times. FSB and Turnstyle lever handles etc are ordered indent from Europe for each project. Delivery can take ​8-10 weeks from order for delivery to New Zealand. Again, for any customisation or special finishes, this time can be extended. We can advise approximate lead times on order. Locks and latches are kept in stock, so ‘dry fit sets’ of hardware for preparing and cutting doors before painting etc, can be provided on confirmation of your order.

All of our finishes are of the highest quality, however some finishes can attract a premium such as solid bronze. For the best value the H+B and FSB ranges have a comprehensive selection of satin chrome lever handles, flush pulls, sliding lock sets, stair rail brackets, door stops and accessories. While we are known for high end hardware, if you can provide us with the PC Sum you have allowed for hardware we can suggests options that may suit. Savings can also be made by reducing the amount of internal key or privacy locking doors and using a standard passage latch. Options like this can be discussed when putting together a quotation for you.
