Halette. Door Handles. July 08th , 2017.
The Nimbus is a completely different style from the Monet, and this shows most clearly in the handle, which is designed rather in the shape of a hairbrush, with a large extending shaft which is connected to the spindle inside the door, and then a rounded lever designed to be used to open the door. This rounded edge is covered with a different colour metal, intended to show off the different stages of the design. The lever is carefully made to ensure the most comfort possible to the user. This design appears in colours of brushed nickel with a polished chrome edge.
Doors throughout history have also changed regarding functionality. For instance, we still find doors of all types, those that roll, slide, swing, and fold. Of course, for doors to function, hardware is required to include door handles. Just as with doors, handles have a long history although these were first manufactured during the mid-19th century in America. The first handle was shaped like an egg and today, they are still found in many homes, especially older homes. Interestingly, because of the way this type of door handle is grasped, it has proved to be the easiest to open.
Lever operated door handles are very popular in European homes, as they are easier to use. This makes them suitable for elderly people, as this design of these handles does not require a tight grip; unlike the door knob, which may slip from the users hand. The door knob is more commonly used in the United States because of its practicality and dual functions: it functions as a door latching mechanism and a lock at the same time. However, U.S. commercial and business establishments have woken up to the practicality of using the lever style of door handles. Aside from easy operation, they are less likely to jam. Further, the lever operated handles are more robust, and can withstand constant use.
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.
Door handles can sometimes fade into the background even though we use them on a regular basis. Think about all the times you walk in and out of a room and you use the door handle but because we do it so often its almost like autopilot and we dont really look at the handles we are using. There is a massive choice in the array of handles today and by choosing the right style of door handle for your doors and room you can make your door handles take centre stage and the talking piece of that particular room.
