Virginie. Door Knob. December 05th , 2017.
There are people who collect all sorts of thing. From dolls to bottle caps, there is a collection for nearly every personality. Some people even get all worked up over the old knobs on doors, and have started collections out of antique door knobs. We`re not sure how this collection happened. Maybe is started when an old door was going to be thrown out and there was a nostalgic moment, and the knob was kept as a memory. Then that knob called out for more knobs, and a collecting frenzy was underway.
So, we have seen that inside door levers are not as easy to select as they appear to be. We need to look for a number of properties to make these knobs appropriate for our house. However these days, companies are providing their varied services for all types of doors with their flexible systems. We can look for such mediums to find a suitable one in a more easy and affordable way than looking for a specialized door hardware service.
Although there are a number of glass knob manufacturers that have come out with several replicas of the Victorian glass door knobs, they haven`t been able to match the quality, precision, and detail of antique glass knobs. Although brass, chrome, and steel knobs look good on doors they tend to lose their sheen and color due to the weather conditions. Moreover the constant touch of sweaty or wet hands on these door knobs can make them look drab. Antique glass door knobs are durable and are prone to different weather conditions.
The design of the knobs depends on the cabinet door styles where it is installed. There are several styles for the doors. One of these is the inset door design. This design is available only for framed cabinets because it has to stay within the rails and stiles of the frame. There is a special design of knob for them but the dark colored ones will always do. An almost similar design to the inset door is the lipped door. Lipped door is applicable only for framed cabinet door. It requires having rails and stiles wherein the they could rest. Aside from that, it also needs to have a specific type of knob to help open it. But their difference is that the lipped door has a groove wherein the other part of the cabinet can rest and look for support.
Interior door knobs are available in four primary styles; privacy, passage, double dummy and single dummy. Privacy and passage knobs turn and operate a latch mechanism - the difference is privacy style knobs have a push pin lock (these are generally used on bathrooms or bedrooms). Single dummy and double dummy knobs do not turn or operate a latch mechanism - a single dummy knob is one knob on the exterior side of the door while a double dummy is a knob on either side of one door. Note: Most double dummy knobs cannot be used on two separate doors.
