Door Hardware – A Buyer's Guide


Visitors: 179

A handle of a door or a drawer should have sufficient strength to support and help in transmitting the force.

The simple door handle has become very complex and unique, thanks to digital technology. It is not as simple as pulling or pushing a handle to open the door and gain entrance to a building or a room. The latest in door handle design has adapted all the combined functions of buzzers, cameras, intercoms, keypads, motion detectors and RFID readers and converted it into an integrated infrastructure to permit or deny access. This innovative door handle does not need a key. The built in code in the chip carried by the person is identified by the door handle through the transponder antenna. If found matching with the list of persons authorized to enter the building then the door is opened without any action such as pulling or pushing of the door handle. Another benefit of this innovation is that elderly and the disabled persons need not go through the trouble of physical strain involved in opening the door. For more info visit

From the hidden corners of Rawnsley Foundry in Staffordshire UK, amidst years of debris and dust original Edwardian and Victorian drawer handles were discovered in 1988. These were restored to their original condition and castings were made from them to preserve the tradition. These original castings are made from genuine patterns maintaining their originality and uniqueness. These superb drawer handles are available for £5.00

Pewter bow handles include two sizes of spice drawer cup handles and bow handles. To give hardness and strength, tiny amounts of other metals and 92% of tin is used in these pewter handles. They are priced around $18.
