Like in life, it is good to know what one desires, and when that is not clear, then at least to resolve what one does not want. In the case of handles, the primary choice is driven by the intention, i.e. what for is the handle needed. Rosette door fittings (round/angular/oval rosettes), chosen with respect to the house interior, suit well various households. On the contrary, older doors look better with suited shield door fittings that will cover any marks of previous door fittings.
In general, shield door fittings are mainly installed in premises where the doors are under more strain. One way, among many others, how to protect one’s property, is to install security door fittings that have a handle only from one side. It is important to bear in mind that in the case of entrance handles, left and the right side is differentiated, because the grab handle, knob or lever handle is only on one side. In the case of a door knob, it is crucial to know whether you need a fixed (non-turning) one that works like a pull handle or a turning one that works in the same way as a lever handle. Concerning a pull handle, you will be asked by the Holar specialists whether you need a double-sided or one-sided version. So take your time to think through all your priorities and answers.
Nowadays, it is possible to manufacture handles almost of any material. The material choice of a lever handle, knob or pull handle depends on the door shield type. Interior door fittings are usually made of brass, stainless steel or various alloys. Plastic door fittings are still popular thanks to their wide color variety. Nevertheless, you cannot go wrong with stainless steel. Its main advantage is its high quality, elegant look and easy-care. Holar offers a complete assortment of door fittings of high-quality stainless steel.

When choosing a suitable door handle, it is advisable to choose it according to what one intends it for.
