Virginie. Door Handles. November 19th , 2017.
These handles have a very long back plate, around 180mm from end to end, with the door emerging from the plate for about 47mm. The handle is gently curved, with a slight upward lift at the end to give extra comfort to the user. Made in rose brass with brushed nickel, or PVD brass, or a bright coffee-coloured metal, the Monet set of door handles comes with fixing screws and a 7.9mm spindle which can simply be pushed through the door. For users who want extra security, it is possible to buy the Monet handles with a lock in the base of the plate. This lock can then be attached to the 3-lever mortice lock which is also available in this range, and will provide security when used on the outside door of a home.
There are two types of handles, when it comes to general use: external or outdoor handles which are utilized on all main entrances to the home, be it front door, back door, side door or service door; and internal handles which are used for the doors inside the house such as bedroom doors and toilet doors. One of the most popular broad types of external door handles is the lever type, which is commonly used in European homes. External latches are normally bigger as they frequently come with key-in locks for security, and are called lever lock handles. Indoor handles (or lever latch handles) are smaller, as they come without locks, and key-in locks are normally installed separately on the door. There are also external handles with combined door knockers, a very practical alternative when your electric door buzzer is out of order.
Nice and easy, and low maintenance, the best way to keep your chrome handles looking great is to dust them and give them a quick wash over with the tried and tested soft cloth and warm soapy water combination. Make sure to dry thoroughly afterwards with a lint free cloth or towel. An occasional wipe over with a light oil will also help maintain the appearance of your handles. Dont use metal polishes or any kind of abrasive cleaner.
The Kitchen is the one room in the house that presents the door handle manufacturer and supplier with a range of problems peculiar to that room and which are worth considering. The door handles require a number of design factors to be considered dependent on their position and usage. The first problem with a kitchen is that because it deals with food it is susceptible to the transmission of germs throughout the kitchen. Food is invariably transported and prepared by hand and this is then transmitted to other surfaces when cupboards are opened and closed.
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.
