Virginie. Door Handles. November 20th , 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.
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.
These Door hardware are made from a variety of materials such as cast brass, sheet aluminum alloy, metal sheet and wood. These are made from cast brass material may be copper finished, nickel or chrome plated, bright satin finished and antique finished. The sheet aluminum alloy handles are available in finishes like matte, dyed, satin bright or natural finishes. The metal sheet may be copper oxidized or stove enameled finish or both black. The wooden come in lever latch types with intricate and ornate carvings in base plate. At the same time, most people prefer to buy Door hardware made from brass and metal for permanent and lasting use.
The quality of the knobs is important since handles are used regularly. There are various materials used to make door handles. Stainless steel is one other most durable materials for door furniture knobs. There are both satin stainless and polished stainless knobs. There are different grading of the stainless steel and you can get an average grade for your household use. Chrome and brass are also durable materials for door handles. Other knobs such as glass are delicate and may be inappropriate for exterior doors. Though they are very beautiful and classy, they may easy be dirtied and will look bad if not cleaned and shined. Wood knobs are also available. They may not be as durable as the steel handles but they are much cheaper. Besides the material used in making the door furniture handles, you should also be keen to buy knobs from a reputable company to be guaranteed of durability and quality.

Some handles are placed at the center of the door for aesthetics. You can also get a see through knobs or a old fashioned ones. The door knobs also come in diverse colors to match with the door furniture and the rest of the house.
