USA: Door Knobs: Door Knob Manufacturers
ABOUT DOOR KNOBS
Door Knobs are available in a wide range of materials and sizes, in traditional and contemporary designs, to suit everything from entry doors to kitchen cabinet doors. Full size door knobs are available in aluminium, stainless steel, brass, porcelain, and crystal. Door knobs may be provided with locking mechanism and central keyhole. A wide range of smaller fixed knobs, including novelty cabinet knobs, are available for cabinet doors and wardrobes. An alternative to the door knob is the lever door handle; this is more easily used by the elderly, since it does not require such a strong grip.
