Marveille Door Handles September 13th, 2017 - 08:47:37
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.
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.
When decorating your house, no matter what room it may be, you always think of the major aspects such as what colour paint, plain paper or patterned, colour and style of carpet, what furniture to have, and so on and so on. The little features usually get forgotten about until the end or entirely missed and it is these little finishing touches that turn a well decorated room into an adorable living space.
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.
