Door handles for internal and external use
While talking about the general use of door handles, they are of two types;
1. Outdoor or external handles; they are used for the main entrance, back door, front door, service door or side door.
2. Internal handles; they are used for internal areas of the home such as, toilet doors or bedroom doors.
The door handles for external use are slightly bigger than the internal ones because they come with key locks whereas the internal handles might not have the key locks and the locks are installed separately.
Materials used in door handles
The commonly used materials in the door handles are
- Wooden handle
Solid woods used in the wooden handle. Ornate and intricate carvings are used in the base plate and for the designing plain solid wood is used
- Cast brass
In the cast brass door handles different materials are used such as chrome, nickel, and copper along with a slightly antique touch
- Metal sheet
In these handles oxidized copper and stove enameled finish are used for the texture of black
- Sheet or cast aluminum alloy
In these handles aluminum is anodized with matt and dyed for the finishing of bright and natural texture.
Handles for doors are used repeatedly. More often people touch them and thus this gives an opportunity for the germs and bacteria to grow. But materials like copper, brass and silver do not allow the rapid growth of bacteria and this is because of their electro chemical effect. But anyhow the use of disinfection helps a lot.
