Reasons Why You Should Install Stainless Steel Door Handles


Stainless steel has the ability to resist rusting. For this reason, it has a wide range of industrial applications including the manufacturing of door handles. Although there are various door handles composed of other materials such as copper, brass and other metals for manufacturing handles, stainless steel handles provide the best aesthetic, durability and rusting resistance. Here are the main benefits of installing a door handle made of stainless steel in your home or workspace.


Corrosion Resistance

Corrosion happens when certain metals are exposed to moist air or water for an extended period. Fortunately, stainless steel door handles are corrosion-resistant which means that they are less likely to rust when exposed to said elements. This however does not make them unsusceptible to corrosion in case of rainy weather. Thus, it is important to secure them using accessories such as lever protectors or handle guards. It is also best not to touch them when your hands are wet or filled with dirt.

Another way of ensuring that your stainless steel door handles you have installed are protected against corrosion is by placing them in a location safe from water and moisture. Therefore, be sure to have them installed by A1 Knobs & Handles Singapore. We have a team of professionals who can determine where your door handles are best installed.




Different types of door knobs and handles being sold in the market are easily prone to damage due to being made of weak material. In contrast, stainless steel door handles do not get damaged as quickly because of how strong their material is. Furthermore, they can withstand great impact from other objects, thereby making them the best choice in terms of security.




Not only are pull and lever handles made of stainless steel strong enough to withstand damage, they are also so durable that they can be used for a long period of time. Because of their toughness, they are also shockproof and are highly resistant to disfiguration in case of impact.


Weather Resistance


As mentioned, stainless steel door handles are very corrosion-resistant just like cabinet handles made of the same material. Besides that however, they can also withstand other effects caused by extreme weather. For instance, stainless steel handles are less likely to become loose during extremely cold weather as opposed to ordinary door handles. Also, you do not have to worry about receiving electric shocks from them during cold, dry weather since they are not as strong a conductor of electricity like many other door hardware sold in the market.

In order to continue using your stainless steel door handles in spite of sudden weather changes, hire a professional so they can install your handles for you. They can ensure that your stainless steel handles are installed such that they are safe against the effects of extreme weather conditions.


Low Maintenance


Unlike other door knobs and handles that require special maintenance, stainless steel handles are easy to maintain and are guaranteed to retain their appearance even when cleaned with ordinary solutions. As a matter of fact, they only need to be cleaned once or twice a year unlike some drawer and cabinet handles. Moreover, cleaning stainless steel handles only requires the use of ordinary soap or mild detergent and water. Although you can still apply other cleaners, you should avoid using ingredients with abrasive and aggressive content. This includes bleach cleaners that contain chloride and other concentrated powders that can produce a strong chemical reaction. Be sure to also avoid using steel wool to clean these handles as it can cause scratches. Instead, it is advisable to use a normal cleaning cloth or sponge.


Hygienic Surface

Stainless steel handles do not have pores on their surface which means that dust, bacteria, and dirt are unlikely to survive on their surface. As such, they are relatively hygienic. For this reason, stainless steel handles are commonly used in high maintenance environments such as hospitals and restaurants.  The ability of stainless steel handles to be sterilized also makes them much more preferred to other door handle types.



Maintaining a clean environment is a shared responsibility that everyone should be mindful of. Fortunately, you can contribute to protecting the environment when you purchase stainless steel door handles. Unlike most other cabinet and drawer handles, stainless steel handles are recyclable and help to reduce waste.



Stainless steel door handles are known to be strong, durable, hygienic, recyclable, and low in maintenance. This makes them highly beneficial for any home or workspace.
