Virginie. Door Handles. November 29th , 2017.
Lever operated door handles are very popular in European homes, as they are easier to use. This makes them suitable for elderly people, as this design of these handles does not require a tight grip; unlike the door knob, which may slip from the users hand. The door knob is more commonly used in the United States because of its practicality and dual functions: it functions as a door latching mechanism and a lock at the same time. 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.
Treat door handles as an accessory to your door. This should help in choosing the right style and colour for your home. So if it is an accessory to your doors you will need to look at your doors and see what kind of style they are, for example are they pine wood and simple in design, or are they white and very traditional and intricately styled? If you have a very busy door dont go for a busy door handle, choose a style that is in keeping with the doors mood but calm it down a little on the door handle otherwise itll look too much in the room. If you have a plain door you can go all out and with a jazzy and fancy door handle.
While the Storm door handle could be described as an attempt to mix and match the two previous options, it really stands out on its own. The very long back plate is 185mm, over 50mm more than the length of the lever handle (which is 127mm). The handle itself is slightly curved, although not enough to be very noticeable, and is a single length of handle, rather like the Monet. It features the different colour metal on the palm pad, as exhibited by the Nimbus, which makes it an ideal match for a more modern house. The Storm door handle is also available with a lockable back plate which again matches a mortice lock in the same style.
When you need elegance and sophistication for an older door, or perhaps to compliment an older style house, then you should consider purchasing some back plate lever handles. These are designed to have the familiar elongated escutcheon, which works both as a thumb plate for the hand while it is using the door and an attractive ornament when the door is not in sure. These features mean that they are very popular with home owners, and can add an element of traditional furniture style both inside and outside the house.
Doors throughout history have also changed regarding functionality. For instance, we still find doors of all types, those that roll, slide, swing, and fold. Of course, for doors to function, hardware is required to include door handles. Just as with doors, handles have a long history although these were first manufactured during the mid-19th century in America. The first handle was shaped like an egg and today, they are still found in many homes, especially older homes. Interestingly, because of the way this type of door handle is grasped, it has proved to be the easiest to open.
