This new Lever Lever and Lever Pad handle range is offered in antique black, along with hardex chrome, gold and graphite and is designed within a suite of perfectly matching products including letterplate and bull ring knocker. The operation of this new handle has been tested to in excess of 200,000 cycles and the finish across the range meets the requirements of BS EN 1670:2007 Grade 5 Corrosion Resistance (480 hours). Many consumers like the traditional appearance of some of the period inspired designs within the Endurance® Doors collection and the availability of a new heritage hardware range that’s designed to last is a major plus, at a time when some antique hardware options have high failure rates and a short operational lifespan. These new finishes will also be featured on the Door Designer.
