Difference between Emuca drawer handles and knobs
It is common for this terminology to be used synonymously, but this is a mistake. Although they perform the same function, they are not the same thing. When we talk about a doorknob, we are referring to an element that is used to open the door and is fixed to the door through a single hole. In addition, they usually have a circular shape.
On the other hand, when we talk about handles, it is an elongated element which is fixed to the door and drawers by means of two screws and comes in different sizes.
Types of Emuca drawer handles
Different shapes, materials and colors… there is a handle for every person, which makes the choice of a model complicated.
To make it simpler, we will first divide the types of handles into two main groups: exposed handles and concealed handles.
The most common: we all know them, they are those that are placed on the front of the drawer or door and come in different models.
These in turn are divided into handle and knob handles.
They are ideal for lovers of minimalism, as they give a clean and refined look to the kitchen. These are made to the size of the furniture, as they are integrated into it, are classified as follows:
- Handles for fingernail drawer: this model incorporates a handle, although it is imperceptible to the eye. It is installed on the edge of the drawer, leaving a small space that can be accessed using the fingernail, hence its name.
- Handles for drawer with Gola profile : allows to open the drawer through aluminum profiles that are attached to the structure of the drawer, so that you can pull it with your fingers and open it without difficulty.
- Drawer with push and pull system: this mechanism is one of the most innovative of the moment. It consists of a piston integrated on one side of the hull, behind the drawer door. To open the drawer, simply press and release: it will open automatically without any effort.
Types of Emuca drawer handles: according to their material
We have already explained what are the types of handles according to their model, now we will talk about the types of materials with which Emuca drawer handles are manufactured.
This way, you will be able to determine which type of material is the most suitable for you based on style, color, durability, resistance, ease of cleaning, etc.
Stainless steel handles
Stainless steel handles are a favorite of many, due to their durability and ease of cleaning.
As their name suggests, they do not rust over time, so they are ideal for bathrooms, kitchens or humid environments, as they will not deteriorate easily.
Among the most used and sold materials in the drawer pull market is Zamak, because it is a hard, resistant and difficult to scratch material. It comes from an alloy of different metals such as copper, zinc, aluminum and magnesium.
Although its properties are similar to those of steel, its price is much lower. In addition, it comes in different presentations such as nickel, chrome, metallic, bronze, gold, silver, among others.
Unlike Zamak and stainless steel, aluminum is lighter and yet equally durable, as it resists corrosion quite well.
On the other hand, it is a very easy to clean material thanks to its “anti fingerprint” feature.
As we said at the beginning, there are as many drawer handles as there are people. In addition to all the materials we have described for you, there are also those that combine materials and come embellished to give a modern look or more suited to your tastes as a user.
