Door handles are one of the items that we often come into contact with in our daily lives. They not only facilitate us to open and close doors and windows, but also beautify them. Door handles can be roughly divided into the following parts: handle stem, handle base, pattern plate, fixing screws and other assembly auxiliary parts. Let’s analyze the different parts of the door handle one by one.

 What are the different parts of a door handle? How to maintain it? 1

1. Handlebar

The handle bar is the main part of the door handle. Its main function is to provide a grip position and make the door handle more convenient and reliable. There are many types of handlebar shapes, including straight bars, curved bars, pocket bars, wavy bars, etc. Handlebars of different shapes can meet the needs of different people.

The handles are generally made of stainless steel, aluminum alloy, copper, iron, etc. Stainless steel handles are corrosion-resistant and easy to clean, while copper handles are rich in texture and are suitable for houses with higher-end decoration styles. The surface treatment of the handle bar generally includes brushing, polishing, electroplating, etc. Different treatment methods will also affect the aesthetics and texture of the door handle.

2. Handle seat

The handle seat is the part of the handle bar that is connected to the door, and its shape and size generally match the handle bar. The material of the handle seat is generally the same as the handle bar. Handle seats of different materials have differences in strength, corrosion resistance, etc.

3. Pattern board

The pattern plate is the decorative part of the door handle. It is generally used together with the door handle to play a better decorative role. Pattern boards come in various shapes and materials, including copper, iron, wood, acrylic, etc.

The production process of pattern boards is very complex and requires precise metal processing or engraving techniques. The handlebars combined with the pattern plate usually use modern CNC machining technology, which can produce exquisite handles that match the pattern plate.

4. Fixing screws and other assembly auxiliary parts

Fixing screws and other assembly auxiliary parts can ensure that the door handle is firmly installed on the door and avoid shaking or deformation during use. Fixing screws are generally made of stainless steel, copper, steel and other materials, and the surface treatment is generally galvanized, copper plated, etc.

Assembly auxiliary parts such as screws, washers, and nuts of different materials and processing methods can make the door handle better adapt to different usage environments and different installation positions of doors and windows.

From the aspects of door handle design, manufacturing and installation, the design and material selection of different parts can meet people's needs for door handles from different angles and improve the door handle's use experience and decorative effect.
