How Door Handles are made?

The majority of modern door handle sets are manufactured from metal components, with brass being used most frequently. Processes for producing door handles include pouring molten metal into molds, or casting, as well as the more commonly used forging process. In forging, metal is heated and then pressed into dies of various shapes. This efficient process makes exterior door handle sets and interior door handles that are up to 250% stronger than those made with a casting process. Forging consists of several key steps: 1. A piece of metal is heated to extreme temperatures in a furnace and then placed in a shaped die. Intense pressure is exerted on the die, thus forming the heated metal to the die cavity shape. 2. The new door handle is then taken out of the die press, cooled, trimmed, and washed. 3. Now the door handle is ready for its surface to be finished. Processes involved to prepare it for polishing include drilling, milling, tapping, and coining. The thumb latch and locking mechanism are now assembled, and the handle is buffed for shine. 4. To protect the door handle finish, an organic or inorganic coating is put on using physical vapor deposition or electroplating. Inorganic coatings are becoming more widely used since the solvents in organic coatings (such as acrylic and polyurethane) can hamper quality and generate hazardous materials. 5. Manufacturers then examine the completed door handle set for quality control issues such as surface finish, dimension consistency, and building code compliance.

What is the history of door handle?

They''re items we rarely think about, but door handles have been in use for centuries, although America began manufacturing them in the 1850''s. Back in colonial days, door handles were constructed out of wood or string to form a basic latch. The traditional round door handle made an appearance in the late-eighteenth century. Door hardware was almost exclusively imported until decorative door handles were displayed at the Centennial Exposition of 1876. Early door handles were made of a wide variety of materials. Glass knobs (either made of pressed or cut glass), wooden knobs, and ceramic knobs were popular through the nineteenth century into the first decade of the twentieth century. Knobs made of metal were typically made of several soldered pieces, until the mid-1850 when the casting process was developed. The Victorian era produced a profusion of decorative cast bronze, or brass, door handles. Over 1,000 antique door handle designs from this period have been cataloged by collectors. Locking devices on door handles are a necessity, and processes to machine steel locks were utilized starting in 1896. Modern door handle sets feature spring locks, dead bolts, or electronic devices that require a key code or combination.
