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.
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.
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.
Door handles are an important part of the door furniture. Its looks location ease of function and its accessibility are all an important consideration. Door handles typically use a mechanical system with a screw axle referred to as the spindle that has a flat section fitted through the door groove. The handles or knobs are then fitted on either side of the door fastened to the spindle to enable opening and closing. Different knobs have extra complexity and functionality.
