The Museum of the American Indian, New York VERY building that has Good Hardware has a higher valuation out of all propor tion to the slightly higher first cost of Good Hardware. Why is this true? Because hardware, although often overlooked as a minor detail of con struction, cannot be overlooked after the build ing is occupied. The lock on a door is the focal point of a door. It is the first thing seen and touched. Hardware forms the connecting link between the structure and you, who use it. It operates and controls all the movingparts ofthebuilding. Good hardware enters into your everyday life as a hundred willing servants, unobtrusive, silent, aiding at every turn your goings and comings, your ventilation, your comfort, convenience and security.
