Babette Door Handles July 13th, 2018 - 09:34:44
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.
Nice and easy and low maintenance the best way to keep your chrome handles looking great is to dust them and give them a quick wash over with the tried and tested soft cloth and warm soapy water combination. Make sure to dry thoroughly afterwards with a lint free cloth or towel. An occasional wipe over with a light oil will also help maintain the appearance of your handles. Dont use metal polishes or any kind of abrasive cleaner.
The second facet of the design of door handles is that they should be simple in design both in shape and size so that they are do not protrude and catch people as they pass by. The shape should be such that it is easy to operate in most kitchens they work by a straight pull with the door being held in position by a magnetic door catch and the design should reflect this. The pattern should not include grooves or crevices where dirt can collect and cause problems.
NEVER use wire wool or carbon steel brushes to clean your stainless steel door handles and pulls - this can cause damage to the surface and allow particles to become embedded in the surface leading to rusting or other corrosion occurring. Warm water mild detergent and a soft cloth are all you really need to keep your stainless steel clean and make sure to dry it well after cleaning to avoid any water marks being left behind. For more stubborn marks any non-scratching household abrasive cleaner should do the trick again make sure to rinse and dry thoroughly!
