Windows and doors serve a practical purpose but are not always practical in their use.
Standard door knobs can be difficult for anyone to use. Have you ever had to open a door with packages in your hands in which you had to set one down just to turn the door knob and then re-gather the bag and walk in. Now, imagine if you had arthritis or if you were a small child how easy it would be if you had lever handles instead.
Widening doors may not always be practical or possible. We have special hardware that adds about 2” of clearance. This will make it easier move large objects like furniture or appliances through the door without having to always remove the door. It also makes it easier for those who use wheelchairs or walkers to maneuver through the opening. Pocket Doors are an old item that has seen a rebirth in its use. It is the best alternative to a hinged door. It saves space, does not require a threshold and can be fitted with easy-to- use hardware. Pocket doors do require special framing inside a wall. This means that an existing wall would have to be removed and reframed to accommodate the pocket.
It’s hard enough to fumble through a dozen keys to find the one that opens your front door. But doing so while holding your child or an armload of groceries can feel like a Herculean task. The RF Remote Deadbolt solves this typical problem easily: Replace your standard deadbolt with this remote-control door lock, and you’ll be able to unlock the door with the press of a button on a remote that attaches to your key ring. Since it utilizes radio-frequency technology, you won’t even need to aim the remote at the lock for it to release the lockset.
