Also when it comes to fitting a lock to a door you will need to decide whether you are going to have a separate handle and lock, or a fitting that combines both. It may well be that like most people you do not need locks fitted to every door, however if you do need some doors to be fitted with locks, on storage cupboards as an example, and want to use handles fitted with integrated locks in them then make sure they are available in the range of handles you are considering buying.

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.

However, U.S. commercial and business establishments have woken up to the practicality of using the lever style of door handles. Aside from easy operation, they are less likely to jam. Further, the lever operated handles are more robust, and can withstand constant use.
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.
