Ainsley Bullock Door Handles, 2018-10-01 03:36:04. Storm Door Handles. While the Storm door handle could be described as an attempt to mix and match the two previous options, it really stands out on its own. The very long back plate is 185mm, over 50mm more than the length of the lever handle (which is 127mm). The handle itself is slightly curved, although not enough to be very noticeable, and is a single length of handle, rather like the Monet. It features the different colour metal on the palm pad, as exhibited by the Nimbus, which makes it an ideal match for a more modern house. The Storm door handle is also available with a lockable back plate which again matches a mortice lock in the same style. When you are looking for door handles with an additional back plate, you need to consider the different roles which style and tradition can play in the design of the door handles. The back plate is a very traditional feature of doors, and can be seen on most Victorian-age homes, but the plate can also be adapted for more modern use, showing that it is adaptable for the times we live in. If you have a traditional home, then you may choose a more traditional back plate design, but for people living in new-build houses, modern back plate features on handles can provide the nod to tradition that they were looking for, without sacrificing style.

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.
