Alexandrin Door Handles September 03rd, 2017 - 08:01:56
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.
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.
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.
You have spent so much time, money and energy into creating the perfect bedroom, or lounge, or dinning room, and so you owe it to yourself to finish the job properly. Choosing the right door handles for your rooms is an example of the finishing touch that cant be missed. Picking out door handles doesnt mean just going with the cheapest, banging them on the doors and there you have it jobs done, choosing the right door handles can be as important as picking out the right colour sofa for your living room. For every home and every room and for every preference there is a door handle to suit. You may be thinking I have never even thought about door handles they just came with the doors, or they were there when we moved in and we havent touched them since which is all very well and good but now is a great time to have a look around and choose the perfect door handles to give your home and your doors a little bit of umph!
