Philip Parker with his 40 years’ experience heads the team of skilled craftsmen and artisans in creating stained leadlight glass, custom made doors and windows.
Philip founded his home studio where he spent time mastering his trade designing and manufacturing leadlight and stained glass windows. His skills were quickly recognised by a well-established door industry that commissioned him to design not only windows and stained glass leadlights but also the doors themselves.
Due to the demand of his services the business expanded to High Street Armadale. Armadale Doors & Leadlight began to develop a client base designing for many builders and architects across Australia including simple homes to Grand Manors.
After 16 years positioned on High Street Armadale, A, D & L moved to a larger factory in Malvern to accommodate the demand for hardware and standard doors. After conducting extensive research A, D & L were able to increase their market to include the major hardware distributors in Australia and also source hardware from around the world that is now included in the standard range of elegant and affordable luxury entrance sets.
Over the last 40 years A, D & L have sourced and collected original old glass up to 100 years old. This glass is constantly used in the restoration and manufacture of reproduction leadlight and stained glass panels.
Armadale Doors and Leadlight has grown to the business that it is today due to the meticulous attention to design and detail which is reflected in every facet, shown particularly in the superior standards and workmanship.

In 2006 the Australian leadlight & stained glass standards were re-written. The standards board had recommendations from people within the glass industry to legislate and change the standards. As Philip Parker was the President of the Leadlight Association at the time, it was his job to represent the industry Australia-wide and discuss the changes with the Australian Standards committee.
The changes would have impacted the Leadlight industry significantly and as a result stained glass and leadlight panels would have never been able to be reproduced as it has for the past 100 years. Philip was determined to ensure this did not happen and was called upon to write the industry standards for leadlight and stained glass.
With Philips 40 + years’ experience in the industry he was able to produce standards that positioned the industry into the 21st century. Armadale Doors & Leadlight are across door and window standard 2074 down to the Australian Standards of 1288 and Philip’s knowledge in these standards allow him to design within the envelope set out by the legislation within the Australian Standards.
