This very curvaceous example of the lever-makers art is a simple piece of metal which extends from the shaft of the handle out towards the centre of the door. The handle extends about 128mm from edge to edge, and is designed to have a very comfortable fit. This handle has been created in brushed nickel with chrome additions, making it an attractive metallic accessory for your home. It also has fittings such as a heavy duty latch and some escutcheons which are designed to match and flatter the shape of the Velum handles.

The modern door knocker is a vestige of this style of primitive door handle. Doors were typically secured by bars and brackets to prevent them from being opened by either intent or accident. Over time, large crossbars used to secure a door were supplanted by sliding bars, operated by a handle secured to the bar and projecting through a slot in the door, or as a pivoting bar - often called a latch - that could be dropped into a matching slot on the door jamb. In Colonial America, the operating mechanism for a small pivoting bar was a latch string threaded through a hole in the door near the handle. There are - probably apocryphal - accounts and references implying that this mechanism was a workaround for heavy taxes and a crown edict mandating the colonists could only use door latches or locks imported from England. About the middle of the 18th century, handles and locks were integrated into a single unit, the earliest known examples being levers that both operated the latch and served as a pull to open the door.

Its looks, location, ease of function and its accessibility are all an important consideration. Door handles typically use a mechanical system with a screw axle referred to as the spindle that has a flat section fitted through the door groove. The handles or knobs are then fitted on either side of the door fastened to the spindle to enable opening and closing. Different knobs have extra complexity and functionality.

When you consider that some 120 million doorways exist in the United States alone and another two million are installed each year, you can only imagine the vast number of door knobs.

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.
