Virginie. Door Handles. November 27th , 2017.
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.
Besides security, it is important to consider the functionality of the door furniture handle. If the door is made of hardwood, it should have a handle mechanism that makes it easy to open and close the door. Furthermore, handles in common passage doors need to be durable to handle the continuous handling. You can then use the less durable but more beautiful handles for the inner doors that may not require a lot of opening and closing. A major concern with door knobs especially for public doors is the hygiene. People including medical practitioners have argued that handles do spread contagious diseases. By using materials like brass, copper and silver, you reduce the infection rate since these metals are poisonous to germs.
While different types of door handles are designed with unique components, the average handle has basic components. For instance, in addition to the knob top, which is the large knob that you would actually grab hold of to turn, handles are made with a spindle, shank, and knob rose. The knob rose is a round washer or plate used to form a socket. This piece is adapted so it can be attached to the actual door. Then, there is that spindle, which is the thin piece to which the handle attaches. The shank is the stem that projects from the door handle. Within the shank is a hole in which the spindle would be placed. For functionality, the door handle would be attached so the metal shaft can turn the latch to open the door.
Door handles can sometimes fade into the background even though we use them on a regular basis. Think about all the times you walk in and out of a room and you use the door handle but because we do it so often its almost like autopilot and we dont really look at the handles we are using. There is a massive choice in the array of handles today and by choosing the right style of door handle for your doors and room you can make your door handles take centre stage and the talking piece of that particular room.
When you consider that some 120 million doorways exist in the United States alone and another two million are installed each year, you can only imagine the vast number of door knobs. Going back in history, doors were initially made from textiles and animal hides. However, during the ancient Mesopotamia and Egyptian era, wooden doors were developed. Soon, materials for making doors expanded to include stone, glass, metal, and even paper.
