We received a door lock installation service request from a homeowner in Washington, DC. An elderly household member was finding it increasingly difficult to use door knobs because of weakened grip strength, so they decided to replace the front door knob with a lever handleset. We swapped their standard doorknob with this stylish Satcher brass entrance door set to make it easier for everyone to use the door. The handleset's satin black finish went well with the door. Family members can now easily open and close the door using this new, more accessible handle.
Although most people do not pay much attention to door hardware and look at them as just functional, there is more to them than meets the eye. For example, the slow process of turning a knob and opening a door without the assistance of both hands is inconvenient. On the other hand, door lever handlesets are one of the most popular styles of door hardware available. There are many reasons why people enjoy using them, but one of the biggest benefits is how easy they make it for you to get in and out of your home. If you are looking to invest in new door hardware, you will find that lever handles offer more advantages over traditional door knobs.
Door lever handles are a great option for people with issues opening doors, as there is less movement in the knob required to open the door. In addition, they require very little downward pressure to open and unlatch the door, meaning you can push it open with your shoulder. As a result, you can save time and effort by opening the door without setting things down.
Do you hate touching door handles with your dirty hands? Well, a lever handset is a solution to that. Hands-free door handles can be installed on any door, making it easy to open and close without using your hands. For example, you can install them on bathroom doors to keep the spread of germs and other viral contaminants from the door handle being touched by unwashed hands.
People with arthritis or other physical limitations find door lever handles much easier to use than traditional door knobs. With this hardware, they will not struggle to unlock doors with their hands, allowing them greater mobility and freedom. In addition, lever handlesets do not require any hand strength or additional force from your wrist, making them an excellent solution for those with weak grips.
Door levers are a great choice for glazed doors and tight door frames. The lever mechanism is designed to slide the lock bolt out of the door frame, allowing you to open your door easily. In addition, the simplicity and practicality of lever design make it a great choice for doors where locks cannot be installed due to the shallow depth of the case.
Entryway handlesets can be used to augment the outward appearance of doors. There are more door lever handleset designs and finishes than you could imagine, allowing additional customization for homes that desire a traditional or contemporary design. Our locks professionals will help you choose exterior handlesets for your entry door, so do not hesitate to ask us!
