The hardware for doors, commonly known as architectural ironmongery, is a core component of any project. The right choices will enhance the visual impact of a building, and its functionality, accessibility, safety and longevity.
On any project, work on the door hardware can only begin after an ironmongery schedule has been drawn up. The schedule specifies every single piece of hardware, from handles, locks and hinges to doorstops, kick plates and signage, and may include electronic locking systems, access control, and door automation.
There are many considerations when specifying door hardware and getting the right hardware for a particular building involves functional as well as aesthetic considerations.
– What type of building is it for?
– What function is it expected to perform?
– What period or style is the building?
