Door Handles. Monday , October 01st , 2018 - 13:13:29 PM
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. The fridge and freezer are the major culprits because these are the most commonly used appliances but the other cupboards are also a prime contenders. The use of door handles to open the cupboard doors are the prime region of contact where and whilst some materials are better than others for retaining germs, all of the handles do it to some degree. Therefore it is worth using a door handle that is easily cleaned on a regular basis so that any germs are disinfected quickly and precisely.
The entrance door handles are usually used for the doors furniture that lead to the outside of the house. The knobs come with a locking mechanism for security. The privacy knob locks will usually not come with a cylinder locking system. The security features are not major since the main aim of the door furniture is to enable privacy as opposed to security. Closet door knobs on the other hand do not have a locking system. They are used on hall ways and for closets door furniture. The knobs are used for pulling and returning the door. Dummy handles are used more for aesthetic beauty as opposed to functionality. Such handles are placed on electric doors, ball catch doors or spin doors.
As door handles easily catch germs and bacteria because of the variety of individual hands that touch them in the course of a day, it is important to consider the materials used. It is believed that certain materials like brass, copper and silver discourage the growth of bacteria and germs through some kind of electro-chemical effect; while other materials like aluminum, stainless steel, glass and porcelain do not have the same action. However, this belief has remained just that... a belief: and studies have not been extensive enough to confirm or disprove this possible effect, except in the case of silver. Hospitals in particular are experimenting with handle materials as they continue their fight against infectious disease within their wards.
