Antique doorknobs are made of different material. However, the replicates are now made of materials that are known to spread infection on contact like glass, porcelain, and aluminum. At the same time, there are some of the modern materials that actually display self disinfectant features, like replicate antique doorknobs made of brass and silver that are known to be poisonous to quite a few germs! This is possible due to the oligodynamic effect that is a characteristic of these metals. The self disinfecting doorhandles are essential in clinics and hospitals. They are also particularly useful in environment catering to the care of infants and toddlers, like day care center buildings.
Hollow-core doors are made from hardboard with either a smooth or molded surface. It not only resists swelling but also shrinking, besides, it also provides the look of wood-paneled door on a budget. These doors are light and easy to handle, making it a popular choice for interior doors. Security wise, this should be your last option as the honeycomb-core makes it very easy to break down the door with a few kicks.
The exact fitting or location of the doorknob varies according to the preference of the home owner. The location may vary in a few centimeters from the framework, the exact center of the door, and the outer top corner. The variations most of the time are observed to depend on the culture of the place, specific preference, and particular decorative style. The back-set or the distance from the edge to the center of the doorknob is defined with exact measurements and precision. Homeowners must keep in mind though that they can be difficult for children and elderly people to operate, and hence, the location of the doorknob should be decided on with a lot of consideration.
