When you need elegance and sophistication for an older door or perhaps to compliment an older style house then you should consider purchasing some back plate lever handles. These are designed to have the familiar elongated escutcheon which works both as a thumb plate for the hand while it is using the door and an attractive ornament when the door is not in sure. These features mean that they are very popular with home owners and can add an element of traditional furniture style both inside and outside the house.
When you are looking for door handles with an additional back plate you need to consider the different roles which style and tradition can play in the design of the door handles. The back plate is a very traditional feature of doors and can be seen on most Victorian-age homes but the plate can also be adapted for more modern use showing that it is adaptable for the times we live in. If you have a traditional home then you may choose a more traditional back plate design but for people living in new-build houses modern back plate features on handles can provide the nod to tradition that they were looking for without sacrificing style.
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.
