Door Handles. Thursday , September 13th , 2018 - 00:53:51 AM
In terms of materials used, these are the types of handles commonly found in use. Cast Brass - can be copper finished; nickel or chrome plated; bright satin finished; antique finished. Cast or sheet aluminium alloy - usually anodized; with matt, dyed, satin bright or natural finishes. Metal sheet - can be copper oxidized or stove enameled finish, both black. Wooden handle - made of solid wood with some intricate and ornate carvings in base plate (in lever latch types). Others are plain solid wood for a minimalist design.
Before proceeding with the door handle replacement project, you should collect your tools at one place and open the door slightly. Check the interior sides of the handle to find the screws. If you do not find the screws, then the door handle head should be popped-off using a flathead screwdriver. The screwdriver head should be inserted into the side slot and turned slightly. The cover on the handle will come-off exposing the screw. The screw can be turned and removed. This should be done for both sides of the handle - inside as well as outside. Then the screws on the strike plate are removed from the side of the door and then the latch is removed. In case of screen doors and storm doors, you can skip this step. The next step in door handle replacement is to take a measurement of the distance between the side of the door and the holes. This distance is called 'back set' and it can help you to make sure that the new handles will work properly with the door.
The quality of the knobs is important since handles are used regularly. There are various materials used to make door handles. Stainless steel is one other most durable materials for door furniture knobs. There are both satin stainless and polished stainless knobs. There are different grading of the stainless steel and you can get an average grade for your household use. Chrome and brass are also durable materials for door handles. Other knobs such as glass are delicate and may be inappropriate for exterior doors. Though they are very beautiful and classy, they may easy be dirtied and will look bad if not cleaned and shined. Wood knobs are also available. They may not be as durable as the steel handles but they are much cheaper. Besides the material used in making the door furniture handles, you should also be keen to buy knobs from a reputable company to be guaranteed of durability and quality.
