A door handle is a handle hardware installed to open or close a door. There are different types of door handles designed for exterior doors, internal doors, cupboard doors and vehicle doors. The most common types of door handle are the lever handle and the doorknob. Door handles can be made out of a wide variety of materials, among which, most common used materials are stainless steel and aluminum.
Material: 304 Stainless Steel
304 grade stainless steel has a maximum of 0.8% carbon, between 16 and 24% chromium, up to 35% nickel, and minimum 50% iron. The combination of these metals in the stainless steel results in high corrosion resistance, durability and hardness.
Because door handles are always touched by people and will be easy to occur bacteria. If the door handles are made in 304 stainless steel, there is a smaller chance to remain bacteria on the door handles, which is more safe. Additionally, due to the good corrosion resistance of 304 stainless steel, the door handles will not rust even if many year later. Finally, 304 stainless steel also provides a clean finish with a bright aesthetic that is welcomed by modern society.
