Virginie. Door Knob. November 30th , 2017.
You can even find designer door knobs these days, if you are all about fashion. Some are hand made of stone, glass and other materials. If you want to go classy, glass door knobs are very beautiful. They can look like gems shining from a treasure hold if they are put in the right room with the right lighting. One thing to note about glass door knobs is that, they are not recommended for the outside doors to your home, as they are more fragile than other knobs and may not react well to the changes in temperatures. They also will be getting a lot more wear and tear on an outside door and may not be strong enough to handle it.
Most door knob manufacturers are also wholesale suppliers and exporters. The commonly used materials for making door knobs are brass, iron, wood, wire, ceramic, stainless steel and aluminum. Door knob is a handle used for opening and closing a door. Door knobs are often sold as complete locksets. Porcelain door knob/rosette assemblies are offered for both sides of the door. Passage/privacy sets consists of a latch, faceplate and strikeplate.
If you think about it, the door knob began the whole movement towards security and safety in the home. Before the door knob, doors would just push open when someone wanted to get inside or go out. Then along came the door knob. It was a great way to keep a door from opening accidentally. A door knob also offered a side benefit of keeping the elements out of the house. Imagine how things would be in a storm without a door knob. Rain and wind would rush in every time.
Compared to door knobs, door levers are beneficial in some different cases. This type of handle is efficient for gripping. They are often selected for homes where there are children, elderly people or disabled who are not able to grip handles with much force. Like door knobs, levers are also available in different materials, including brass or nickel door levers. Along with this advantage, companies have added different structures on levers to give them additional appeal.
Brass door knobs have been around for a very long time, most traditional homes feature them and they are etched in people`s mind as very traditional. Although they used to be rather expensive, their prices have fallen quite dramatically in recent years, so much so that they are now considered one of the cheapest solutions on the market today.
