Virginie. Door Handles. November 19th , 2017.
When you need elegance and sophistication for an older door, or perhaps to compliment an older style house, then you should consider purchasing some back plate lever handles. These are designed to have the familiar elongated escutcheon, which works both as a thumb plate for the hand while it is using the door and an attractive ornament when the door is not in sure. These features mean that they are very popular with home owners, and can add an element of traditional furniture style both inside and outside the house.
Brass door handles are available in variety of types, like reproduction period and antique period brass. Many other types of them are also available in the market and all of them are capable of greatly enhancing the looks of your house. However, the reproduction and antique period brass are like a premium type of brass as they are more durable and last longer than other types. This type of door hardware usually doesnt wear off easily and even when its finish fades away, it will still give an antique look and will match the decoration of your house.
Newly installed brass door handles are always radiant, but eventually the wear and tear will cause them to lose their radiance. This wear and tear could be due to stains, grease or any other similar factor that can reduce the glow of metal. As brass is the combination of zinc and copper, it creates a golden color that gives the brass door handles their attractive and shining look.
The simplest handle is a pull - or push - projection on the side opposite the hinge. The placement of the handle is generally where it will provide an optimal mechanical advantage; most doors operating as second class levers. Doors with centre pulls or rings, or a pivot point in a location other than one edge of the door, use first or third class lever principles. Depictions of door handles in paintings dating to the first century CE are centrally placed hinged rings. The modern door knocker is a vestige of this style of primitive door handle. Doors were typically secured by bars and brackets to prevent them from being opened by either intent or accident.
When considering the handle, you should also consider its security especially it it is for an exterior doors. For home owners, it is important to select a knob with a quality locking system. A locksmith can assist in identifying door furniture handles that provide a decent amount of security for the people living in the house. Some door handles may come interconnected to the security system of the house to alert surveillance when the knob is operated when the alarm system is switched on.
