So with that said, it is an incredibly durable type of bar. “We decided against using a thinner upstand and welding. Using a 38mm bar against a 38mm straight bar gives a more effective and aesthetically-pleasing product. The bolt through fixing gives a neater finish and, as Stainless Steel 304 is used, the product will not pit or rust. Each UAP pull handle comes with an Allen key and two bolts on each of the up-stands. These bolts are all made from top quality 304 grade stainless steel. And every pull handle has two fixing points with an individual plate on each. “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, which is an 8mm bolt through. The N8 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. ‘What makes the UAP pull handle really stand out from the crowd is the three different fixing methods available’ 0161 796 7268 Call Us Today: “What makes the UAP pull handle really stand out from the crowd is the three different fixing methods available; namely hidden fixings, bolt through and back to back. Due to these fixing procedures, customers also have the option of sending the door to site without the pull handle on. This will prevent damage on site or in transit. The door will simply be sent with the fixings on, and the installation would be completed on-site. “Pull handles with hidden fixings come with two fixing points, each with an individual plate. These are fitted to timber and wooden doors using three separate screws. The pull handle then attaches onto the plates, and is secured with the Allen bolts. The internal fixings are not visible on the door. • Full Range of Accessories Available including Round Pull Handles and Escutcheons »»When designing the pull handles, several door manufacturers were consulted during the process to ensure they met the desired requirements of the majority. One of UAP’s main aims was to guarantee that its pull handles did not have any of the downfalls which may be present on other pull handles available in the market. David Jennings, MD at UAP, explains: “The first thing we decided to do was make each pull handle from 1.5mm thick 304 grade stainless steel, and make it part of the UAP Nanocoast range. “The UAP Nanocoast collection of door hardware has been designed specifically for areas which are within a twenty-five mile radius of the coast, or within five miles of highly populated industrial areas. “Each pull handle has been salt spray tested to ASTM B117 for a minimum of 2,000 hours, and comes with an industry first LIFETIME guarantee. Our pull handles will not pit, rust or corrode-regardless of what environments they are exposed to. “We then made the pull handle to have a much sturdier, more robust construction with a 38mm diameter. This makes it far easier to grip the handle, especially for people who have “Finally, 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 are 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.” David concludes.
