The history of Door handle

One of the interesting things about the door handle is its history.

Behrizan explains in this article about the door handle history

The first person who invented the use of the door handle for closing the door was Osbourn Dorsey in 1878.
Perhaps he did not think that one day, this invention would be one of the main elements of classical or modern design in interior decoration.
Before the invention of the Egyptian people, they used very simple locks on the door.
During that period, it was possible to close the door by inserting it into the door lock.

At the time of Louis XIV, in the year 1643, the door handle was very much considered,
as part of the decoration in the buildings and architecture of that time, the decorative and gilded handles.
Eventually, door handles are designed and manufactured in different designs depending on the type of consumption.
For doors that are outward and secure for entrance to the building, the input handles,
or the so-called Pull handle, are used, and for indoor door handles, the door handle or door handle is used depending on the consumer's taste.

All locks can be locked.

Yazd, as one of the historical cities of Iran, has a wide variety of historic historic sites.
The doors are generally made of beech, oak, walnut and maple.


At that time, Knocker was also very important because it was a key element in protecting the privacy of the family,
and this reflects the interest of the Iranian people in the family and the family.
If we want to classify old knockers, there are three types of Knocker.

Knocker for men

Knocker for women

It had a subtle sound, indicating that it was a woman.

Strangers knocker

As its name suggests, this crackdown was used for those who were strangers.
