Pickersgill-Kaye, an ASSA ABLOY Group brand one of the most trusted names in access control solutions, are experts in providing quality, high frequency handles. Focusing on high security, the handles have been built to survive the wear and tear applied to heavy duty door sets operating in busy sites like educational facilities, hospitals and offices.
To meet security requirements the aesthetically pleasing handles from Pickersgill-Kaye, which are also available in cranked design to help assist ease of access, are made from high quality 316 stainless steel to ensure strength and durability.
Corrosive resistant, robust and capable of operating doors in excess of 200kg, Pickersgill-Kaye’s new handles are currently being industry tested to 300,000 operations, exceeding the benchmark BSEN 1906 and BSEN 179 required standards.
Among the key features of the handles are;
• Weathering resistance to reduce exposure to door skin and lock case
• Handle rose compression ring to reduce movement and guard against damage
• Balanced sprung handle for ease of operation
• An 8mm drive spindle for easy installation
These stylish heavy-duty door handles, which can be specified with Pickersgill-Kaye’s high security locking systems and ASSA ABLOY’s access solutions, may also be compatible with other manufacturers’ door sets.
Phil Prigg, Product Sales Manager at Pickersgill-Kaye, said: “Our team have listened to customer feedback, which influenced the design process of the new high-performance handles. We believe that the solution lies in resilient door fittings that can be relied upon to keep functioning under the most extreme pressure.”
The company’s portfolio of locking systems is designed and manufactured to the highest technical standards. The range of locks, handles, bolts and fittings has been specifically developed to meet exacting standards of physical attack whilst maintaining safe and easy exit.
As with all Pickersgill-Kaye products the new heavy-duty handles are supported by experienced technical and customer care departments, which can also provide full product training and a worldwide service.END
