The high security door handle has a 243mm long backplate. and is aimed at the fabricator who wants to offer a high quality, ergonomically shaped and designed door handle range but who doesn't want to get involved in fitting a cylinder guard. This fit and forget handle is packed with state of the art features, and can be used by the professional installer offering a security upgrade service. The  high security door handle contains many security features not found in other high security door handles, including:

1 - Anti-Drill Resistance  - The integrated cylinder guard helps protect your door from drilling attacks. The blind cylinder end only makes the plug of the cylinder visible, helping to protect the pins inside from being drilled.

2 - Easy Fitting and Attack Resistance - The self-adhesive tabs ensure not only easy and secure fitting also further strengthen the door handle against possible attacks

3 - Water Penetration Resistance - The self-adhesive tabs also aid in preventing water from penetrating between the door and handle, thus preventing corrosion, discoloration, and premature aging

4 - Cylinder and Handle Snapping Protection - Once fitted onto the door, the door handle is developed so as to help protect from the most common break in methods, cylinder snapping and handle snapping

The front door handle can be sprung and unsprung, as the spring inside can be easily removed. PVD gold, mirror polished and satin stainless steel finishes are part of the UAP Nanocoast range, and come with a LIFETIME coating guarantee.

Please note: In order for the handle to fit and the cylinder to sit flush against the door, the recommended cylinder size is 65mm. The external side of the cylinder should be 5mm shorter (must use 30/35 or 30/35T cylinder on 44mm doors).

For 44mm composite doors, we have designed a special 65mm 25-10-30 (30/35) UAP+ 1* Kitemarked cylinder to use with the high security front door handles, which fits perfectly into these 44mm door profiles.

At UAP we are constantly striving to improve on the products we already supply as well as develop new, pioneering ranges and practical product solutions.

With an in house testing centre and product developer, each stage of the development process is thorough, from the initial design right down to the final product. In house 3D printing technology allows for further and more precise advancement of our products which are then expertly manufactured and put through stringent testing conditions using in house test equipment – ensuring all products are designed to the highest standards:

Handle Cycle Testing Machine

The machine imitates the action of the door being pushed down in an opening and repeats this 20,000 times, to test its durability. The axial and rotational operation of lever handles is being tested to make sure in can withstand numerous openings and remain functional. UAP perform the test in accordance with BS EN 1906:2015

UV Sunlight Testing Machine

Used to test the colourfast of plastic and anodised products, the UV machine measures the stamina of the door handle finish, testing how quickly it will fade in sunlight. It does this using UV lights which the products are left under for 2000 hours.

Salt Spray Testing Machine

This machine tests the corrosion resistance of the door handles and many other products. The salt spray cabinet produces a corrosive environment, by releasing a dense saline fog into the chamber which the products are exposed to. This creates accelerated corrosion to the product and allows us to test how well the product would stand up in harsher environments.
