Brass Door Handles Solutions for Your Facility 

Door furniture isn’t just functional pieces of hardware; it’s the finishing touch that can significantly elevate the aesthetic appeal and functionality of every door in your building. 

With a blend of timeless elegance and robust durability, our collection of brass door handles is designed to cater to the needs of both commercial and residential spaces. From your cosy bathroom to external doors facing the elements, discover the perfect brass handle door solutions that combine style, security, and sophistication.

Why Brass Door Handles?

Brass, with its inherent strength and classic appeal, offers unmatched durability and a rich, warm aesthetic that ages beautifully over time. Our collection spans from the traditional elegance of Heritage Brass Bedford door handles to the contemporary sleekness of modern designs, ensuring that every preference is accommodated.

Key Features and Benefits

Diverse Designs: Whether you're looking for brass internal door handles that add a subtle charm to your interiors or brass external door handles that stand up to the rigours of outdoor use, our range offers an array of styles. From the ornate detailing of traditional designs to the clean lines of modern brass handle doors, each piece is a testament to quality craftsmanship.

Durability and Quality: Crafted from solid brass, our door handles are built to last, resisting wear and tarnishing over time. This makes them a practical investment for both high-traffic commercial environments and residential settings. Some models have a brass finish on a different base metal or a brass-look effect. 

Security with Style: Select models come with integrated locks, offering enhanced security without compromising on design. Our brass door lock handles provide peace of mind, combining privacy with aesthetics.

Ease of Installation: Designed for versatility, our door handles fit various door types and are sold in pairs for convenience. Installation is straightforward, ensuring that updating your door hardware is a hassle-free process. Some models are face fixing with matching screws. Other levers are bolt fixing through the door for a most robust mounting option. 

Selecting the Right Brass Door Handles for Your Space

Choosing the right door handles involves considering both the functional requirements and the aesthetic preferences of your space. Here are some tips to guide your selection:

Consider the Door's Purpose

  • Interior vs. Exterior: Brass internal door handles often feature more decorative designs, while brass external door handles prioritize durability and security features, such as locks.
  • Privacy Needs: For bedrooms and external doors, brass door handles with lock options offer privacy and security. Bathroom handles come in the form of a long backplate with an integral thumbturn or lever on rose with a separate bathroom thumbturn and coin release.

Match Your Architectural Style

  • Heritage and Traditional: Opt for designs like the plain yet functional Victorian door handles or the Bedford collection of scroll design lever handles. These traditional designs reflect classic craftsmanship and detail. They complement rather than distract from a range of interior design styles. A straight lever grip is at home in an older residential property or modern purpose built space. 
  • Modern and Minimalist: Choose brass interior door handles with sleek lines and minimal detailing for a contemporary look, emphasizing the material's quality and finish. Return to door safety levers that comply with the dimensional requirements of BS 8300 are available in this rich, traditional finish. 

Functionality Meets Aesthetics

  • Backplate or Rose: Door lever handles on backplate add a traditional touch and are ideal for covering previous drill holes when replacing existing furniture. Lever on rose door handles suit modern, clean door designs. They can be paired with escutcheons for locking doors and bathroom turn and coin releases on WC doors.
  • Finish and Texture: Consider the finish of your door furniture. Polished brass offers a shiny, reflective surface. In comparison to a matte finish, it will show fingerprints and scuffs more readily. Brass is also available in antique or satin finishes which provide a more subdued, contemporary look. Contact us for details on these alternative finish options. 
  • Fire Door Handles: Brass levers are for more than domestic bedroom and kitchen doors. There are handles available in this traditional finish that are suitable for use on FD30 and FD60 fire rated doors. Fire door hinges and door closers are also available in the same finish for a cohesive look and compliant solution for your built environment.

Enhancing Your Interior with Brass Door Handles

Brass lever handles are more than simple points of contact; they are integral elements of your interior design. By selecting the right function, finish, and style, you can transform the doors throughout your space. 

Our collection not only meets the practical needs of security and functionality but also caters to the aesthetic demands of every design ethos. This selection of handles from industry-leading brands ensures users are safe and secure when navigating your building, with no need to compromise on aesthetics. 

Installation and Care

Installing your new brass door handles, internal or external, is a straightforward process. It can have a transformative impact on your space. Proper care and maintenance ensure that your brass handles look their best over time.

If the lacquer is removed from polished brass levers, door knobs, or any door hardware, they develop a rich patina that adds character and depth. Solid brass ironmongery can always be cleaned and polished back to a mirror-shine finish. We always recommend following manufacturer guidelines for care of finish details specific to your door hardware.
