There are numerous famous sayings relating to doors, which just goes to show how important they are as a milestone in our lives as well as an important security and thermal product.
Confucius said: "The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential...... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence" an ageless adage and so true.
One saying I particularly like (probably as I trained as a teacher) is by Victor Hugo the French poet and novelist who wrote Les Misérables while in exile in Guernsey, he says ......
" he who opens a school door, closes a prison"
On a more light hearted note is the old quotation " I’ve got the key of the door, never been 21 before". Many young people will not relate to this as they usually have the key of the door well before the age of 21. Nowadays, 18 is the age of majority, when you are considered to be an adult and therefore allowed to come and go as you please, rather than abide by your parents wishes. How things have changed, whether we agree with it or not, many young people have the key to the door due to necessity, as parents are often out working when they return from school.
Well, keys, doors, locks, latches and all the related paraphernalia are very close to our hearts at Doorsan Ltd. A door may not always require a key but it usually requires hinges and latches in order for it to stay shut. We are able supply and give advice on the most appropriate hardware for the type of door you are purchasing. Of course exterior doors will need latches to hold the door and locks to secure it. Interior doors generally just need a latch but bathroom doors benefit from a turn and release lock which are also available with an indicator, these are referred to as privacy locks. Do give us a ring if you need advice on what is available.
The subject of doors will continue (watch this space). Gentlemen don't forget to carry your brides over the threshold, but maybe that's another blog.
