Virginie. Door Handles. November 29th , 2017.
Door handles are an important part of the door furniture. Its looks, location, ease of function and its accessibility are all an important consideration. Door handles typically use a mechanical system with a screw axle referred to as the spindle that has a flat section fitted through the door groove. The handles or knobs are then fitted on either side of the door fastened to the spindle to enable opening and closing. Different knobs have extra complexity and functionality.
Door handles are considered as one of the essential parts of any home or office. On one hand, they have practical uses; On the other hand, they add a lot to the overall interiors of home and office creating a great look and feel. Be it kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living or dining area, nothing looks perfect without attractive handles and knobs. Since the use of door hardware have become a fashion statement, they are being widely used to add glitz and glamour to the over-all look of your home or office.
We have also seen door handles made from many different materials although most people think of some kind of metal. However, handles have also been made from ceramic, wood, glass, plastic, etc. One of the oldest materials that are still among the more popular options is brass. For one thing, brass looks gorgeous but it is also rust resistant. Todays brass door handle is somewhat different from those made in earlier times due to finishes. For instance, for a more modern appearance, many people choose brushed or satin brass.
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.
As door handles easily catch germs and bacteria because of the variety of individual hands that touch them in the course of a day, it is important to consider the materials used. It is believed that certain materials like brass, copper and silver discourage the growth of bacteria and germs through some kind of electro-chemical effect; while other materials like aluminum, stainless steel, glass and porcelain do not have the same action. However, this belief has remained just that... a belief: and studies have not been extensive enough to confirm or disprove this possible effect, except in the case of silver. Hospitals in particular are experimenting with handle materials as they continue their fight against infectious disease within their wards.
