Lylah Atkinson. Door Handles. September 11th , 2018.
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.
To most Americans, the terms handle and knob are synonymous. In Europe, however, door levers constitute the vast majority of door handles. Because of their utility and accessibility, door levers are gaining popularity in the United States. They are far easier for an individual physically challenged by arthritis, disease or injury to operate than round door knobs. While exterior and large door handles will eventually be supplanted by automatic opening mechanisms, door handles will continue to necessary for smaller doors on interior doors, cabinetry and other furniture for centuries to come.
Another variety is the Pannus, which features a very round and attractive door lever shape. This is round, rather similar to the shape of a water fountain spout, and is designed to allow the user the maximum push possible. The handle itself is very closely connected to the fixing point of the door, and the palm pad is covered by a layer of shining metal which is intended to provide more comfort to the user. This style of door handles also has a second option in the Pannus (new), which is again, a door lever very close to the spindle. In this case, the lever is not curved in the same elegant style, but instead starts at a very narrow point before inflating to a larger size and then narrowing again to a point at the end. This provides a very soft and luxurious feel to the hole handle.
