Alacoque Door Handles September 08th, 2018 - 04:09:40
The other important aspect to consider when buying door handles is the aesthetic beauty. There are artistic knobs that may take diverse shapes such as a hand bottle or a key. Some handles are placed at the center of the door for aesthetics. You can also get a see through knobs or a old fashioned ones. The door knobs also come in diverse colors to match with the door furniture and the rest of the house.
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.
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.
Because it is used quite a number of times in a day the quality of door handles should be able to resist the pressures exerted on them. It is a positive attitude not to consider choosing handles as wastage of time as they are part of the house interior to be used frequently. Some important tips in choosing these can help out in the process of fitting the right handle to the 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.
