Handlesets come in all different sizes and are typically available in four basic styles. Below you will see how each of the four different handlesets stack up.
One Piece Handlesets, occasionally referred to as Monolithic Handlesets, consist of a single plate. The single plate connects the grip to the deadbolt. Be sure to know what your center-to-center measurement is prior to ordering one of these handlesets. These are very popular and would go great on any residential door. The handleset pictured to the left is the Emtek 4811 Arts and Crafts Single Cylinder Handleset in Oil Rubbed Bronze. You can find this handleset and many more on our one piece handleset page.
Two Piece Handlesets, commonly referred to as Sectional Handlesets, are composed of two sections. The deadbolt and the grip are mounted separately from one another. These are very similar to the one piece handlesets and are available in numerous styles and finishes to match your specific taste. The handleset pictured to the left is the Kwikset Ashfield Handleset in Iron Black (model number 800ADH-LIP-S).
Full Plate Handlesets rest on a full plate backing and therefore these are considered Full Plate handlesets. The deadbolt and handle both rest on one solid plate. These are ideal for any type of residential door and certainly add a touch of class to any home. You will find full plate handlesets from various brands and in many different styles here at handlesets.com. The handleset pictured to the left is the Weslock Wiltshire Handleset in Oil Rubbed Bronze (model number 7680).
Electronic Handlesets combine the security and convenience of a keypad deadbolt with the elegance of a handleset. These entry sets provide a great first impression and keyless convenience. These locks allow you to create and delete multiple codes for keyless entry. If you have guests, expect the cable guy to swing by or own a rental home, you can easily create a new code. Your electronic handleset code can be temporary or long term; it's all up to you. The electronic handleset pictured to the left is the Schlage Camelot with the Georgian Knob in Antique Brass (model number FE365-CAM-GEO).
