Alacoque Door Handles July 29th, 2018 - 07:06:36
The first thing that you ought to consider is the type of material these cabinet door handles are made of. Since there are plenty of materials to choose from such as nickel brass chrome stainless steel wrought iron glass and even plastic you need to think about the overall effect that you are trying to achieve. To help you narrow down your search you should consider where you will be installing these handles. Will it be your bedroom bathroom or kitchen? Knowing which cabinets or doors you are going to revamp will help you get one step closer to the right door handles to purchase.
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!
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.
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.
