So here are our 5 reasons why we consider you should choose Kirkpatrick ironmongery for your home.
1. It is highly durable being made of malleable iron. Malleable iron is a class of cast iron which has been treated to become an iron-carbon alloy. This means it has high strength properties but maintains a high level of ductility i.e. it can flex without breaking. They use malleable iron, because it is stronger and more durable than imported alternatives.
