Newly installed brass door handles are always radiant but eventually the wear and tear will cause them to lose their radiance. This wear and tear could be due to stains grease or any other similar factor that can reduce the glow of metal. As brass is the combination of zinc and copper it creates a golden color that gives the brass door handles their attractive and shining look.
These handles have a very long back plate around 180mm from end to end with the door emerging from the plate for about 47mm. The handle is gently curved with a slight upward lift at the end to give extra comfort to the user. Made in rose brass with brushed nickel or PVD brass or a bright coffee-coloured metal the Monet set of door handles comes with fixing screws and a 7.9mm spindle which can simply be pushed through the door. For users who want extra security it is possible to buy the Monet handles with a lock in the base of the plate. This lock can then be attached to the 3-lever mortice lock which is also available in this range and will provide security when used on the outside door of a home.
We have also seen door handles made from many different materials although most people think of some kind of metal. However handles have also been made from ceramic wood glass plastic etc. One of the oldest materials that are still among the more popular options is brass. For one thing brass looks gorgeous but it is also rust resistant. Todays brass door handle is somewhat different from those made in earlier times due to finishes.

While retaining its main functionality of opening and closing doors variations in handle design often come in relation to particular needs and requirements such as: for nursery rooms handles sometimes come in cheerful cartoon designs; for kitchen doors some have fruit embellishments; for a girls room pink handles are also available. These are fancy handles: but for permanent and lasting use most homes use the more versatile materials such as brass and metal handles which can withstand repeated use and can adapt to most household interiors.
