Door Hardware that Does More than Open and Close

Door Hardware that Does More than Open and Close

Stately new designs from Emtek create a gracious welcome.

No guard dogs needed with an Emtek lock on your front door but Canadian designer and TV show host  @jillian.harris ’s cute pooches make an awfully adorable greeting.

If you shop Snyder Diamond, you know we’ve got appliances aplenty and bathtubs galore but did you also know we have a spectacular offering of hardware? We do! And it’s not just knobs and pulls for cabinetry. Emtek, which is based right here in Southern California, offers all of that, of course, but they also have an incredible range of door hardware. So if you’re designing an entrance and looking for something that makes a statement (and a mightily secure one at that—parent company Assa Abloy is the world’s leading lock group), Emtek may make just what you’re envisioning.

Emtek offers myriad styles, from historical to colorful to super sleek, because they understand how integral hardware is to a project’s design. There’s no predetermined combination of knobs, levers, rosettes and finishes. They let you mix and match according to your own taste. Emtek custom-assembled locks are typically shipped within two-to-three business days, arriving at our showrooms within about five business days.  

Founded in 1981, Emtek keeps its finger on the pulse of the market and regularly releases new designs. They also keep their thumbs on their Instagram, which is an incredibly fun and colorful account. Just take a look below for a sampling of what they share online. Then come in and see us—because we’ve got a lot to show you, too!
