Door Handles. Monday , October 01st , 2018 - 21:45:03 PM
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.
Door handle is an ambiguous term, and includes door latches, bars, and knobs. Depending on the geographical location and its place in time, they vary in design, form and materials. The only constant is its function: an attachment used to open or close a door. The earliest doors extant are approximately 5000 years old. Door handles, as devices to manipulate a gateway, became a necessity shortly after the invention of the pivoting mechanism. To most, pivots are simply known as hinges, however, there are nearly as many hinge designs and configurations as there are handles. The simplest handle is a pull - or push - projection on the side opposite the hinge. The placement of the handle is generally where it will provide an optimal mechanical advantage; most doors operating as second class levers. Doors with centre pulls or rings, or a pivot point in a location other than one edge of the door, use first or third class lever principles.
Think about the overall theme to your home and the individual room and what will look good with the style of the door. A good tip when shopping for your door handles is to take a piece of wood the same type and colour as the door in question and put it against all the door handles to see if it goes, just as you would in choosing a set of curtains against the paint on the walls, you need to see if it will go. And don't be afraid to mix and match, it is not law that you have to have the same door handles throughout your home, if one of your rooms has a different feel to it go with the door handle that fits that, they don't all have to be the same!
