A backplate lever is a type of door handle that combines a lever handle with an accompanying backplate. This design offers a stylish and functional solution for door hardware, providing both an ergonomic grip and an additional decorative element.
The lever handle itself is a horizontal component that is typically grasped and turned to operate the door latch or lock. The backplate, on the other hand, serves as a decorative and often functional component that attaches to the door and surrounds the base of the lever. The backplate can vary in design, from simple and streamlined to more ornate and detailed, offering a range of options to suit different interior styles.
