    As you are probably aware, padlocks are a portable lock made from hardened steel usually with a U-shaped shackle hinged at one end and a square body. A cylinder, pin-tumbler lock is located inside this body and opened with the correct key. Padlocks may be something we are very familiar with today and can be found in all different shapes, colours, and sizes but despite their ingenuity and durability padlocks are, in fact, not in the slightest bit a modern creation. The padlock boasts a great history dating back to antiquity all over the world. Let’s have a quick glance back through the years and see where this fantastic little lock originates from...Read More

    Our homes will usually contain our most treasured and expensive possessions, which means it can often be the target of burglars. However, it is not just material items that you lose when burglars enter your home. Your home is the place you spend most of your time and the place you return to each day to relax and rejuvenate. It needs to be a place where our worries are limited, but after a burglary, you lose your sense of comfort. You need to be on top of your home’s security for both peace of mind and protection of your belongings.Read More

    Last week, we discussed which front door colours to consider and what ideologies are tied to different colours. Choosing a front door isn’t all about colour, though, and anybody dissatisfied with their front door needs to know a bit more about how to give your door a new lease of life. We should go that extra mile further than just giving it a new colour. The front door is often described as the most important part of your home, and rightfully so. It is the front door that you are immediately drawn to when looking at a home, expressing the most about your house’s character than the rest of your exterior. It is here, therefore, where people make their first impressions. Be it dinner guests or potential buyers, your front door should always be standing with the right adornments to be warm and welcoming. So, here are five steps to a fresh new front door…Read More

    Choosing a new colour for your front door is no easy task — or at least it shouldn’t be.

    Hi Everyone, This time up, it’s windows. We’ve discussed doors and door furniture over the last few posts, so I thought I would touch on windows and how to make the most out of them with window furniture. I was at a house recently that gave me the urge to express the importance of really making the most of your windows, because without them, we’re living in boxed spaces.Read More

    Hi Everyone, I thought this time around I would fill you all in on some of our favourite door and handle combinations here at E-Hardware. We covered a bit of door history in my blog post Doors and Door Handles Through Time: From Old To New recently. I discussed the beauty of different doors and door hardware from the Georgian period through to the Edwardian period, and it got me thinking about writing a post on our favourite door and door hardware combinations!Read More

    Hi Everyone, Nigel here again! I was talking to somebody recently about the many different types of doors and all the names they come with. Nowadays when choosing a door or door hardware you’ll likely hear a few eras thrown into the mix, namely Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian. But what does that mean? Is it just a name? Is there meaning behind it or is it a marketing ploy to make it all sound a bit ‘fancier’? I thought I would give a brief introduction on doors and how their handles have changed over the last few centuries so you can understand what it actually means to have, say, a Georgian door. I touched on the history of Architectural Ironmongery in my post Hardware Histories: The History and Evolution of Knobs, Handles and Doors but I shall here break down the doors and door handles of different era’s to clean up what is a bit of a grey area!Read More
