We have also seen door handles made from many different materials although most people think of some kind of metal. However, handles have also been made from ceramic, wood, glass, plastic, etc. One of the oldest materials that are still among the more popular options is brass. For one thing, brass looks gorgeous but it is also rust resistant. Todays brass door handle is somewhat different from those made in earlier times due to finishes. For instance, for a more modern appearance, many people choose brushed or satin brass.
Newly installed brass door handles are always radiant, but eventually the wear and tear will cause them to lose their radiance. This wear and tear could be due to stains, grease or any other similar factor that can reduce the glow of metal. As brass is the combination of zinc and copper, it creates a golden color that gives the brass door handles their attractive and shining look.
