All about Door Accessories
Architects, interior designers, and builders are always on the lookout for unique, reliable, and functional door accessories that can give a distinctive touch of elegance to homes, offices, and other properties. Door accessories include door handles, door levers, door knobs, door hinges, door locks, door latches, mounting plates, face plates, and screws. These are generally made from aluminium, stainless steel, bronze, brass, and zinc alloy, and come in a plethora of shapes, sizes, and designs.
Different types of doors, such as solid wood doors, panel doors, composite doors, glass doors, and metal doors, may require different types of door accessories. There is also variation in the door accessories used for front doors, interior doors, emergency doors, garage doors, storeroom doors, and doors used for closets, cupboards, and cabinets. In all cases, both decorative and functional values of the door accessories need to be taken into consideration.
Home security is a main concern with front doors and door accessories like key locksets and smart locks are a must for them. Interior doors may have key locks and latches for privacy but can also make do with door handles and door levers that only need to be turned, pushed, or pulled to give access to the inner rooms. Door accessories for cupboards, cabinets, and closets need to make their doors both easy to operate and keep secure.
Door accessories need to be durable if they are going to remain functional over a long period of time. Buyers should consider the material of the door accessories as well as the quality of their production. Many manufacturers of door accessories offer warranties of one to ten years and industry standards certification like UI and BHIMA certification to assure customers that they are getting high-quality and long-lasting products. Ease of usability across all age groups should also factor in selecting door accessories.
