Alexandrin Door Handles September 05th, 2018 - 21:14:11
While different types of door handles are designed with unique components the average handle has basic components. For instance in addition to the knob top which is the large knob that you would actually grab hold of to turn handles are made with a spindle shank and knob rose. The knob rose is a round washer or plate used to form a socket. This piece is adapted so it can be attached to the actual door. Then there is that spindle which is the thin piece to which the handle attaches. The shank is the stem that projects from the door handle. Within the shank is a hole in which the spindle would be placed. For functionality the door handle would be attached so the metal shaft can turn the latch to open the door.
The Kitchen is the one room in the house that presents the door handle manufacturer and supplier with a range of problems peculiar to that room and which are worth considering. The door handles require a number of design factors to be considered dependent on their position and usage. The first problem with a kitchen is that because it deals with food it is susceptible to the transmission of germs throughout the kitchen. Food is invariably transported and prepared by hand and this is then transmitted to other surfaces when cupboards are opened and closed.
The next thing that you should consider is the style of the interior door hardware you want to use. Would you like a knob handle or lever? This is an important consideration because you will be using these handles to open and close cabinet doors. Get one that fits your hands perfectly so they wont cause strain on your part. Another thing that you might want to consider is whether you are getting ones with backplates. Door handles with backplates can add more charm to your cabinetry so pay special attention to their design size and shape. You might be surprised how easy it is to find the best cabinet handles.
While the Storm door handle could be described as an attempt to mix and match the two previous options it really stands out on its own. The very long back plate is 185mm over 50mm more than the length of the lever handle (which is 127mm). The handle itself is slightly curved although not enough to be very noticeable and is a single length of handle rather like the Monet. It features the different colour metal on the palm pad as exhibited by the Nimbus which makes it an ideal match for a more modern house. The Storm door handle is also available with a lockable back plate which again matches a mortice lock in the same style.
