Emtek Traditional Door Handles
Door levers are the horizontal handles that are attached to a door that allow for its opening and closing. Door levers are seen on almost all doors in Europe and have become extremely popular in the United States over the past few decades as a result of the ample designs both ornate and modern. Levers only require a push down for the opening of a door which is a great benefit for small children as well as the elderly as they do not need to grip the handle firmly and rotate like you would with a door knob. We supply door levers in a wide variety of shapes, styles and finishes. Door levers should be looked at as more than a functional piece of hardware as they not only add monetary value to the home, but also allow you to create a unique design and feel throughout your space. Architects and designers often refer to door levers and finish hardware as the “jewelry” of the home.
