Designed in response to the needs of the ageing population, the Oryx lever handle makes door opening easier for those with poor grip or hand co-ordination.  

Ideal for the infirm or elderly, it looks like a normal lever handle, so is easily recognised by dementia patients, and is based on the same footprint as Turn/Pull handles.

Technical details

The dimensions are: 148mm long, 103mm diameter.



Independently anti-ligature tested

All our anti-ligature handles are independently tested using the Door & Hardware Federation specification – TS001 –for classifying fixed and load-release devices.

All our handles pass at the highest level in their respective categories.  The testing is rigorous, measurable and repeatable – making it a reliable part of your product assessment process.

We’ve proved that our fixed door hardware won’t support ligature attachments with a 0.475kg load on a 0.5mm ligature.

The Oryx handle has been tested and certified to a B4 rating.
