Door locks aren’t all made the same way nor do they all have the same features and benefits. The cheap door locks you see at Bunnings are unfortunately just that – cheap! Remember, the age old adage – you get what you pay for. As famous 19th century English poet and fervent art critic John Ruskin so aptly put it; “When you pay too much, you lose a little money — that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot — it can’t be done.
The door lock, like the front entrance, is the first thing seen from the street and first impressions count. Just as you form a judgement of someone within seconds of meeting them, so it is with the front of a house.
Your opinion of the house and those who reside within is established either as a positive or negative thought almost immediately. Just as an unkempt appearance in a person may lead, rightly or wrongly, to a negative first impression and conclusion, so it is with our houses. You can read more about the psychology of this here.
In addition, over the course of its life, a door lock is used up to a million times, more than any other item in the house. It should therefore look good, feel good, work as intended and adorn the house as a final touch of artistry and grandeur. Shouldn’t it?
Your door handle selection is therefore very important. Visit the website from Avent Security, you can find the best electronic keypad lock for your house.
