Our most popular handle – the pinch grip – is engineered to be highly ligature resistant, and is typically used where manual dexterity is not a concern.
For aluminium doors, there’s a narrower 45mm wide option, while the 90mm wide back-plate option is designed for retrofits where concealing previous door preparation is a priority.
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 Pinch Grip has been tested and certified to a A4 rating – the highest level
