Door Handle Selection
When choosing a door handle, we need to pay attention to the following items.
- The raw material of the door handle
- Surface coating of the door handle
- The geographical structure
- Will be used as an interior door handle or as an exterior door handle?
- How often will the door handle be used?
When these factors are taken into consideration, the door handle selection becomes much easier. Let’s examine it in order.
The raw material of the door handle
If you want to buy a door handle that you can use for many years, you should definitely choose door handles made of zinc, brass, or stainless steel. Stainless steel, zinc, and brass, which have high resistance to corrosion and moisture, are the most preferred raw materials for indoor handle production.
Also, door handles produced using aluminum are slightly cheaper, but they are not very high quality when compared to other door handles.
Therefore, if you do not have any problems with the price when choosing a door handle, we recommend you to choose door handles made of stainless steel or brass material. If you want to buy an average-price door handle, you can choose zinc door handles. If you want to buy a cheap door handle, you can choose aluminum door handles.
Besides, check whether the door handle you will buy is guaranteed. Most door handle models come with a minimum 2-year warranty. It is very important to know this in terms of protecting your consumer rights.
Surface Coating of Door Handle
The surface coating of the door handle is a very important detail. Even if you prefer a door handle made of brass material, if the surface coating of the door handle is not of good quality, you cannot have a long-lasting product.
Do not forget that the coating material is as important as the raw material. Door handles produced using stainless steel material are also very durable in this regard.
Besides, if your door handle has a PVC surface coating, this coating prevents the door handle from being scratched. PVC surface coating not only prevents the door handle from being scratched but also prevents it from wearing. The door handle that you touch with rings, keys, or hard products will be protected by PVC coating. It is important to pay attention to this detail when buying a door handle.
Also, with COVID-19, the hygiene of door handles has become a very important issue. It is very important to produce the door handle with an anti-bacterial surface coating material to ensure these hygienic conditions.
Geographical structure of the area where the door will be used
Generally, corrosion is quite high in windy and humid areas. By purchasing a door handle with high corrosion resistance, you can extend the life of the door handle you will use in these regions. Otherwise, over time, with the effect of corrosion and moisture, the door handle will darken and have a bad appearance.
Will be used as an interior door handle or as an exterior door handle?
If you are going to buy a door handle for the interior door of your home, you need to consider the humidity level. Besides, if you are going to choose a door handle for the exterior door, you should definitely choose a material that is resistant to bad weather conditions.
At this point, it would be more logical to choose door handles made of stainless steel and brass.
How often will the door handle be used?
If you are going to choose a door handle for places such as hotels, hospitals, factories, or workplaces, make sure that it is very durable. Because in such areas, door handles are constantly used. If you do not choose a durable door handle, the product will wear out and wear out very quickly.
In such a case, there will be an extra cost to you. For this, if you want to make a long-lasting investment, you need to purchase the area where the door handle will be used, taking into account the weather conditions, humidity, and frequency of use.
As you can see, there are a lot of details to consider to buy a door handle. At this point, you can make your door handle preference more easily by working with reliable companies. Even if you are going to shop online, the information we provide above will be very useful for you.
If the door handle selection, which is as important as the choice of interior door is done correctly, long-lasting and durable products will come out.
