The automated doors will open if you are carrying shopping bags in both hands. Like some cars that allow a sensor to close the boot when your arms are full, the automated door is basically the same. Going in and out of your home has never been easier.
Door knockers are more popular in England than in any other country and can be found everywhere, even in the most remote locations. However, the history of door knockers begins several thousand years ago in Ancient Greece. Although intricate door knockers are popular these days, the origins of that knocker may be something far more regal than it simply ’looking nice’ on the door. Greeks were a bit picky about unannounced visits to their dwellings. It was considered a breach of etiquette to enter a dwelling without warning. Where Spartans would simply shout their arrival, the more sophisticated Athenians preferred to use a door knocker. Doors had replaced flexible hangings to provide better safety and privacy. Upper class Greeks had slaves whose sole purpose was to answer the door. It’s a bit like having a butler, but one that was chained to the door to prevent them wandering off. If they didn’t die of boredom, they’d fall asleep, and so to wake them up, visitors rapped on the door with a short bar of iron attached to a chain. It soon occurred to all that the iron bar could be utilized as a weapon. In order to prevent unwanted attacks, they soon learned to attach the bar to the door by a hinge. Thus evolved the modern door knocker.
Yet esthetics and happiness are not primary considerations. Protection against winds and scorching heat is achieved by well-designed awnings on the several floors. The patio and pool surroundings would also require such a facility. It is quite true that awnings protect against heat and cold, thus saving energy costs during those seasons. Motorized awnings work by themselves and can detect weather conditions through sensors, retracting automatically. Avoid hesitation and invest in quality fire retardant materials that have been treated against mildew and mold. Go for years and years of quality performance in a range of applications.
