Who is Explore Hardware?

We started Explore Hardware with a clear vision, to provide beautifully designed and best in class products that are sure to enhance any space. From stunning door handles to gorgeous cabinet knobs, all the way to our extensive selection of accessories, we truly have something for any room in your home or office.

For almost 20 years, we have been providing door hardware and accessories to the hospitality industry, luxury homes and large-scale residential projects. We thought it was time to offer our products directly to our customers. We understand that every project, no matter the size, is special, and our new e-commerce division is here to make sure you get access to the finest products.

We initially spent over 18 months designing and then re-designing our products to make sure that they are easy to install, yet look as luxurious as if you had the world's greatest designer and contactor in your home with you.

Founded in Montreal in early 2020, Explore Hardware was created and backed by the minds of a team with almost 20 years of manufacturing and design experience within the industry. We create gorgeous, high-end products that elevate any space.

Our vision now is to expand and provide all the hardware and home decor elements you can imagine. We aim to leverage the overall excellence of our products to bring additional credibility to our brand.

Explore Hardware has a stellar team that designs, manufactures and markets every product that you see on our website, and our partner sites. With our head office and warehouses located in North America we currently ship worldwide.

Where do you ship to?

We currently ship all across North America!  

How long does it take before my order ships?

We try to keep all our products in stock at all times! If the product is in stock, then we will ship within 3-5 business days( sometimes faster!) If the product is out of stock, then we will email you within 1-2 days  to advise you of the back ordered date. 

What is your price matching policy?

The price matching will only be applicable if the initial purchase was made on our website.

If the purchase was made on one of our partner's online stores, it will not be eligible for price matching.

How Does It Work

If you find the product with a lower discount from when you had initially purchased it, you can contact our customer support at info@explorehardware.com 

Please make sure you include your order number with the initial purchase.

Our team will be able to organize a refund with the price difference applied directly to the card that was used initially to place the order. 

Please allow up to 10 business days for our team to process the refund.

Is it hard to install your products?

No! we specifically designed Explore Hardware products that even a first timer can install our products extremely easily! All you need is a Phillips head screw driver and you are now an expert! If you have questions about installation, feel free to reach out to our team of experts any time at info@explorehardware.com 

How do I know if your products will fit on my doors?

All our products are manufactured to standard North American specifications to fit on 99% of doors. We offer both 2 3/8” or 2 3/4” backset for standard prebored 2 1/8” holes. If you any questions or concerns our highly qualified team will be more then glad to help! 

How do I care for my products?   

We strongly recommend a quick wipe down of any of our products on a monthly basis with a slightly damp towel. This will make sure it removes finger prints, dust, salt and anything else in your environment. If the product is located outside near the ocean, we recommend bi weekly wipe downs to remove all the salt on the product. NEVER use harsh chemicals or else it will ruin the finish in the long run. For more tips you can check out our blog here

Base Materials + Finishes

Base materials of our products can include: Solid Brass, solid Zinc, solid Zamak, Solid Steel. All our items are constructed with solid materials for the best quality and durability and then electroplated for the final finish. Product finishes can vary from production batch to production batch slightly and may age/change over time.

How do I know the products that I am buying are quality products?   

That’s a very good question! For those who have never bought hardware before, everything may look the same. Did you know you can buy a door handle for $20 and you can even spend $1,000! This is no different then clothing or car purchases. We feel so strongly that you will love our quality, designs and ease of install, we have a 30-day money back guarantee!
