Getting to Know Door Knobs
A Door Knob can be classified according to the purpose of the usage. Some door knobs are decorative while others are functional. Others are used as a security measure. It is also possible to match a utility oriented doorknob with good looks. Cabinet doorknobs are usually used as decorative handles that are commonly seen in homes and office cabinets.
There are four basic types of doorknobs:
- Dummy knobs
- Entrance doorknobs (locked with a key)
- Passage doorknobs, and
- Privacy doorknobs.
Passage doorknobs are also known as closet knobs or hall knobs, which are generally placed where a lock is not essential. Privacy doorknobs are normally used for bathrooms and bedrooms. These doorknobs can be locked and do not have a cylinder, which needs to be keyed. In many cases, a generic unlocking tool is also provided for conveniences. Dummy doorknobs are fixed knobs; they're an excellent solution for closet doors. Many times a latch is also not required. These doorknobs are mostly used on the inactive doors, which are a set of double doors.
