Hardware solution provider, UAP is making life easier for UK door manufacturers with flexible fixing methods on its slim pull handle. A popular choice for modern door styles, the handle is available with hidden, bolt through and back to back fixings – making it extremely fast and simple to install on timber, composite, glass and aluminium doors.
The three different fixing methods give fabricators and installers the option to send the door to site without the pull handle attached, helping to prevent damage in transit or on-site. The handle is then fitted when required, with minimal fuss.
Made from 1.5mm thick 316 grade stainless steel, the slim pull handle is part of UAP’s Nanocoast product range. Homeowners benefit from the range’s Lifetime Coating Guarantee.
32mm in diameter the handle is available in four lengths and is supplied with an Allen key and two Allen bolts on each of the up-stands. The 900 and 1200mm lengths each have two fixing points and an individual plate. The two longer options, 1500 and 1800mm lengths have three fixing points but fitters have the option of removing the middle leg with an Allen key, if desired.
National sales director for UAP, Barry Halpin comments on why the slim pull handle is an essential hardware option for fabricators and installers wanting to capture the current consumer market, “Online platforms like Pinterest and Houzz are encouraging homeowners to choose a front door that has style and character, one which speaks volumes about the people that live there. And the door and hardware industry has had to respond to this. Colour has been a key factor for a number of years but hardware has an important role in making the ideal door for a home.
“We have seen an increase in demand for our stainless steel hardware, a material that would previously have been chosen purely for its durability. Yet, it perfectly complements contemporary door styles and materials. That’s why our slim pull handle is proving so popular with homeowners and fitters, it ticks every box for creating that perfect entrance for a modern home and is easy to install.”
The stainless steel slim pull handle is available in a satin finish.
