Springs in rosettes, does that sound more like a Venetian masquerade ball? Well, nothing could be further from the truth!

Your door handle probably includes a spring which enables you to  open and close the door effortlessly, horizontally and/or vertically.

So, do you need a spring in your door handle to open and close the door? Not at all. The door mechanism and your door handle will work without a hitch even without the spring!

Currently looking for door fittings? Then it may be worth reading through the options and figuring out whether you’re best going for:

  • a door handle without a spring
  • a single sprung door handle
  • a double sprung door handle

Door handle without spring

As already mentioned above, not every door handle has to include a hidden spring in its mechanism.

The requirements for using a spring can impact upon the design, and this can make door fittings without springs more attractive.

“But won’t that cause problems?”, you may be thinking.

No, not at all. The door and door handle will work perfectly because most locking units are already sprung. You only need to ask for advice with specific locks.

Double sprung door handle

For exterior doors, you may choose a double sprung door handle or rosette because they often correspond with a multi-point locking system.

When this closure is operated by the door handle, it must be manipulated in both directions and then springs back to its original position, once the handle is pushed up or down.

A door handle with a double spring enables the door handle to be pushed upwards to turn the door into the lock and lock it.

Nowadays, there are also excellent multi-point locks that are operated by the door handle. This is not only more practical, but also less of a burden on the fittings.

Please ask for further information from the supplier of your exterior doors.
Single sprung door handle

Single sprung door handle

If you opt for a single sprung door handle, you are choosing a mechanism that automatically brings the door handle back to the horizontal position once it has been pushed downwards.

Most rosettes and cases have a single sprung mechanism, whereby the handle returns to its original position after use.

Because of the fact that a single sprung door handle is usually designed with simplicity and user-ease in mind, most interior doors are fitted with a single sprung door handle.

Completely fine with rosettes and springs, or rather find out more about which door handle, with or without a spring, suits you best? Come and visit one of our showrooms in Wommelgem or take a look at our website dauby.be
