Interior doors are a fairly complex system, which should consist of many components for excellent functioning. These parts are responsible for a specific task in the operation of the door and door mechanism. Only with their well-coordinated work, which can be obtained by the right choice and installation of accessories, you can get reliable and durable interior doors with a good mechanism.
The door handle is also a very important part of the door design. Convenience and ease of operation of the entire structure will directly depend on the correctness of its choice. The main question that many people ask themselves is at what height from the floor to install the door handle.
First, let’s look at the types of door handles:
- Rotary (knobs).
You need to determine the distance from the floor to install the door knob (handle) in order for the door to be convenient to open and close. There is a certain standard door knob height for installing the handle on the door. If the door leaf has the standard size, then the handle is installed at a distance of 1 m from the floor, which is exactly is the middle of the door height. This height is considered optimal to close or open the door.
If the door has non-standard size or you want to make handle more comfortable and in another location, the distance from the floor can be determined independently. Put your hand along the door to determine the necessary height. At the palm level, make a mark with chalk, add to this mark 15-20 cm up and at this level you can install handle or knob. If you have all the doors of the same height, then it is not necessary to determine the height of the handle on each door by hand, only one measurement is sufficient here. Just measure the distance from your mark to the floor and set the handles on the other doors at the same level.
