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.

Dayana Gentry Door Handles, 2018-09-10 17:40:06. 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.

Some people are eager to splurge on high-tech lock sets like keyless and card-swipe systems. However, you need to be sure if they are 100% reliable. For your front and back doors made of solid materials like wood, a single cylinder dead bolt would do.

Whilst you may have spent hours helping your grandparents polish the fireside companion set, when it comes to your door handles, the best way to keep your polished brass door furniture looking shiny is with plain and simple warm soapy water and a soft cloth. The polished brass ranges we supply have all been treated with a special lacquer, and the use of metal polishes or other abrasive cleaners will damage this and cause it to wear away far quicker than it would under normal use. Eventually after a good few years of use, this lacquer may well breakdown, at which point, you should remove the door handle or pull, and treat it with an acetone thinner applied with a soft brush. Dry well with a soft cloth and then polish up with a metal polish. Regular polishing thereafter will keep them looking great.
