Door catches and handles fall into two categories:
A) Large doors in constant use.
A door used every day requires a reliable door fastener that will blend in with the books. The door catch should be either a normal door catch or a good quality ball catch fitted with a suitable knob ( antique bronze is a good choice) (right). Let us know the position and we will accommodate this in the design as inconspicuously as possible.
B) Cupboard doors.
As these are generally smaller and lighter, a protruding book (below 1) or small leather tongue (below 2) will work as a door pull. Magnetic catches (below 3) or a spring catch (below 4) will also work well.
An automatic door closure can assist the door closing to minimise the need for a large handle or door knob. (above right)
