What Are The Different Types Of Door Handles

Lever latch door handle on backplate

Lever latch door handle on backplate

This is your basic door handle on a backplate generally used on doors that you don't need to lock such as the living room or dining room. It consists of a handle/lever on a backplate which when pushed down turns the spindle which passes through the door and the tubular latch inside the door allowing the door to be opened.

This door handle is exactly the same as a lever latch as above but it has a key hole cut out of the backplate below the handle/lever to allow a key to be entered into the door to operate a sash lock inside the door. This handle is commonly used on a back door or a patio door or perhaps an office door.




Bathroom door handle set on a backplate

The bathroom door handle has a thumb turn sometimes referred to as a turn and release or a snib and release below the handle, this is attached to a 5mm spindle which passes through the door and a bathroom lock inside the door allowing the door to be locked and unlocked. As the name suggests this handle is commonly used on bathrooms and toilets.




Privacy door handle on a backplate

The privacy set door handle has a thumb turn sometimes referred to as a turn and release or a snib and release below the handle, when this is turned it operates a mechanism behind the backplate which stops the handle/lever being pushed down. Ideal for use on bedrooms or bathrooms. The privacy set is only available in a few handle designs such as the victorian scroll suite, victorian straight suite or the georgian suite. The privacy set only requires a tubular latch in the door.
