When designing the UAP Straight Pull Handle, we consulted with several door manufacturers during the design process to ensure our straight pull handle met the desired specifications of the majority. We also did not want to have any of the downfalls that may be present on other pull handles in the market.
The first thing we decided to do was make each straight pull handle from 1.5mm thick 316 grade stainless steel, and made it part of the UAP Nanocoast range. The UAP Nanocoast range of products are specifically designed for areas which are within a 25 mile radius of the coast, or within 5 miles of highly populated industrial areas. Each straight pull handle has been salt spray tested to ASTM B117 for 2,000 hours, and comes with an industry first LIFETIME coating guarantee, as the pull handle will not pit, rust or corrode no matter what environments you put them in!
We then made the pull handle have a much sturdier construction with a 38mm diameter. This also makes it easier to grip the handle, especially for people who have got arthritis or limited hand movement. So with that said, it is a more robust type of bar. We decided against using a thinner up-stand and welding. Using a 38mm bar against a 38mm straight bar gives a more robust and better looking product. The bolt through fixing gives a neater finish and as Stainless Steel 316 is used, the product will not rust and so there will be no leakage if it rains. Each straight pull handle comes with an Allen Key and 2 Allen Bolts on each of the up-stands. The bolts are all made from 316 grade stainless steel. All the pull handles have two fixing points with an individual plate on each.
What makes the straight pull handle really stand out is the 3 different fixing methods available – hidden fixings, bolt though and back to back fixings. Due to the fixing methods, customers also have the option of sending the door to the site without the straight pull handle on, this will prevent damage in transit or on site. The door will simply be sent with the fixings on and the installation would be completed on site:
The pull handle comes with two fixing points each with an individual plate. These are fitted to wooden and timber doors using three screws. The pull handle then attaches to the plates and is secured with the Allen bolts. The internal fixings are not visible on the door!
The bolt through method uses a brass thread reducer; this is included in one of the two accessory kits. The brass thread reducer has a 1.5mm thread on the outside which will thread into the upstand. On the internal of the reducer is an N8, this is an 8mm bolt through which provides an ideal position for an internal bolt to fit through. The two Allen bolts give extra protection against vibrations that may take effect on a main road causing bolts to come undone. With the Allen bolts this will not happen!
Back to back
We have developed a system which is incredibly easy to use and which will reduce fitting times to just seconds. Included in the second accessory kit is two plates which have holes all the way through. Once the plate is fitted on the inside of the door, the bolt can be pushed through the plate and screwed into the brass reducer. The internal pull handle would then be fitted using the hidden fix system. This offers an extremely strong back to back fixing method!
