Round Rose Lever Interior Door Handles

Most round rose interior door handles with a lever are sized at a 50mm diameter these days and this is generally a comfortable size for door handles for old doors" href="/door-handles">replacement door handles on old doors particularly where voids may be present. Some larger rose diameters are available and we show these as 58mm diameter rose lever door handles. The round rose type of interior door handle is the most common type of door handle and probably the easiest to fit so when selecting handles for doors it generally comes down to your choice as far as style goes.

Fixing rose door handles involves just merely screwing each rose to the sides of the internal door with the fixings supplied and then hiding the screws with a cover plate which is either push-on or a fine screw thread twist. The latter is infinitely better for that quality appeal and not forgetting of course that the small grub screw under each lever should then be tightened up to ensure the handle doesn't get pulled off the spindle over time. The small grub screw is actually what gives the final structure its strength integrity and is something many people forget. If you have a few questions why not take a read of our short questions section to familiarise yourself with the type of locks and arrangements that are possible when using the lever rose interior door handle and how to fit replacement internal door handles.

Quick Tips & Links

Lever on rose door handles for interior and some exterior doors.

Can these internal handles be used on a front door or exterior door?

You can use them on an exterior door, and many people do, but the longevity of the handle with respect to resistance to weathering is not as strong as needed. Our handles are no different to anyone else's in a lot of respects but we do specify they are preferred as internal door handles. If you need exterior handles look towards upvc door handles or specifically described exterior door handles that have special finishes like PVD or are a higher grade stainless steel.

What type of interior door handle do I need for a bathroom door?

Bathroom doors are usually fitted with a different type of lock that will accept a spindle from a thumb turn. The centre of the thumb turn is usually 57mm from the centre of the lever spindle but in some cases they can be 72mm as would be found on more European type locks and doors. There are two types of interior handles most commonly used i.e. a lever on rose or a back plate lever door handle. With a lever rose handle you need a separate thumb turn fitted to the door and with the back plated handle the thumb turn will be part of the plate itself (assembly needed usually). The thumb turn is always placed on the inside of the door and the outside is an emergency release slot that can be operated by a coin or similar. The two types are shown here:

How long will the finishes last?

If the handles are used internally then they will last a long time. The key to this is to take care when cleaning the handles as they only need a dry cloth or at worst a mild soapy damp rag. Avoid any chemical cleaners and also ensure that you don't fit new door handles to freshly painted doors (within 24 hours). The vapours from some paints could start the plating to decompose. In this case use temporary door handles. It is good to keep the handles clean on a regular basis as some hand greases could over time attack the electro-plating surface. We have seen new handles fitted to doors on building sites and the plaster from the hands of site workers has already attacked the surfaces before use!

What are your door handles made from?

Most of the interior door handles these days are made from either an aluminium or a zinc alloy. The finishing is electro-plated and in some cases the plating is coated but in most cases we can say the quality is very high and excellent value for money. There are fewer designs these days that are made from solid brass and this is largely due to the cost.
