Doors

Locks and latches

The purpose of doors has somewhat been forgotten.

The functionality could be perceived as purely a practical consideration, however, learning instinctively when to operate the door is more likely to be in response to an emotional need. Either the occupants need for comfort and modesty or the emotional needs of the property. Perhaps the need to increase air exchange with cross-ventilation or the need to reduce internal convection currents that convey moisture; resulting in energy loss and degradation.

 


  • All internal doors.
  • Prioritise kitchen and bathroom.
  • Replace door latches with rim latches and brass knobs
  • Separate front and back rooms.
  • Acoustic room divider.
  • Reinstating Victorian panelled doors.
