A sliding door handle is a type of sliding door hardware used to open and close sliding doors and other doors with tracks.

Key features of sliding door handles

Sliding door handles can provide a comfortable grip and leverage to move the door smoothly. This convenient operation without much effort makes sliding doors a good option for people of all ages as well as people with disabilities. In addition, the handle provides a secure grip, reducing the risk of slipping or losing control when using the door. This is particularly important for heavy or large sliding doors. Sliding door handles are typically integrated into other hardware of the doors. Thus, they help sustain the space efficiency of the doors, which are embedded in the walls. Many sliding door handles offer locking mechanisms to help increase the security of households, especially for those with open balconies. The handles are durable and easy to clean. Also, the varied types of handles provide multiple choices to match the interior decoration of the space.

Different types of sliding door handles

Sliding door handles come in a variety of materials, styles, as well as mechanisms, and have different use scenarios according to specific requirements. Metals such as stainless steel, brass, and aluminum are known for their durability and resistance to corrosion. Among them, brass is commonly used to make brass barn door hardware, because it is durable and has a classic yet low-profile appeal. Also, brass hardware can add certain weights to the barn door, which helps increase safety by making the doors heavy to open. Wood, glass, and ceramic are also common materials, whereas plastic and polymer are lightweight alternatives and available in various color shades. There are also various types of handles in terms of mechanisms, including flush pulls, surface-mounted pulls, lever handles, and more. Flush pull handles, for instance, are often used as pocket door handles and sliding door handles and are recessed into the door surfaces. Lever handles or sliding door latch levers can provide an ergonomic grip and offer ease of use. Surface-mounted pull handles are usually attached to the surface of the door and protrude outward. Though different in shapes and sizes, each of these handles has its own advantages for different use purposes. Sliding door handles with locks are also commonly used, which can be divided into two major types- those with built-in locks and those that rely on security hardware to perform the anti-theft function.
