Brass Door Handles

Here at Restoration Online we are known for our huge range of door handles, and brass is probably the most popular finish we sell. Our selection includes lever door handles, door knobs, door pull handles, centre door knobs and entry door handle sets. Choose from simple and classic designs or more ornate styles. From fully brass to crystal and ceramic accents, traditional to modern shapes, we really have something for everyone when it comes to our brass door handle collection.

Are brass door knobs outdated?

Not at all. Interior design trends come and go, but brass is a classic that is always in fashion. Whether your home is a more traditional style such as a Federation, Edwardian or Queenslander, or a more modern style, brass works with most décor themes. There are different types of brass to choose from – you can go for classic polished brass, or a more rustic antique brass. Satin or brushed brass is a newer option that is very on trend, and adds a slightly more contemporary touch.

Are brass door handles real brass?

Yes! All of our brass door handles are real brass. They are made from either forged brass, cast brass or sheet brass.

Forged brass handles are the heaviest, as they are made by melting the brass and pouring it into a mould. This results in a solid door handle.

Cast brass is made in a similar way to forged brass but the end product is hollow, and lighter than forged brass.

Sheet brass handles are the lightest and are made of a sheet of brass which is stamped and shaped. Many traditional handles were made from sheet brass, as it was less expensive and used less brass overall.

Is brass good for door knobs?

There are a lot of benefits of your door knob or handle being made of brass. Brass is durable and corrosion resistant. The finish does age and patina but the material itself stays strong and does not rust. Brass also has antibacterial properties and are very easy to clean.

We recommend cleaning our brass door handles with a polish like Mr Sheen and a soft, dry cloth. Avoid getting the door handle wet too often or using corrosive cleaning products as this can cause the brass to tarnish more quickly.

What are the different types of door handles?

Our brass door handles are available in a range of styles. Here we will explain the different options, giving you a better idea of the type of door handle most suitable for your home.

Lever door handles are horizontal handles, which are moved up and down to open and close the door. When you pull the lever up, the latch inside the door retracts, allowing the door to open. Levers are the most popular types of door handles, they are easier to grip than knobs, especially for young children and older people with conditions like arthritis. Levers can come on a round backplate or a long backplate, and are available for internal doors, bathroom doors and external doors. Selecting the correct latch type will determine the type of door it can be used on.

Door knobs are the traditional round knob you will be familiar with. These are connected through the door by a rod called a spindle. When the knob is turned, the spindle retracts the latch and allows the door to open. Door knobs are popular in both traditional and modern homes. We don’t recommend using them on narrow stiles where a shorter backset latch is required, as you can scrape your knuckles on the door frame when pulling the door open. Most standard doors will have no issue.

Door pull handles are fairly self explanatory – they allow you to simply pull the door open. They consist of a vertical bar which is attached to the door at either end. These usually have an outwards curved shape, allowing your hand to grip the bar. These don’t function with a latch so are not ideal when you need to latch a door closed, and more popular on front doors in conjunction with a deadlock, or on shop doors that are constantly being pushed and pulled open.

Entry door handlesets are something a little bit different, rather than your standard door lever or knob, and create a real focal point for your door. On the outside of the door, these consist of a deadlock and pull handle, but the pull handle has a small thumb latch above it, which means this can be used to just latch the door rather than needing it to be locked (for example, when you are home during the day). It can then be locked at night. On the inside is the deadlock and then either a lever or knob. These are usually quite ornate in design and, while a little more expensive than a standard door handle, have a much more luxury feel to them.

How to choose my brass door handle?

Choosing your door handle can be a little overwhelming with so many choices available. Sometimes you are limited by the size of your backset or holes in your door from existing hardware. If you are working with a builder, they should be able to help you work out the kind of handle you need and you can then choose a style from there. If you are not sure, our helpful team is more than happy to work with you to find the right handles for your doors. We can also provide matching hinges, window hardware, brass door bolts and more. Our handles ship Australia wide to capital cities such as Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Brisbane, as well as regional areas and internationally.
