ASSA, a part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a division of the ASSA ABLOY Group, provides innovative door furniture solutions within its comprehensive range.
Offering one of the widest ranges of architectural door hardware, ASSA’s range of furniture is suitable for a variety of applications, from healthcare and education to commercial office spaces and leisure facilities.
The broad product spectrum, which includes six separate ranges, enables specification for large-scale contract projects, whilst also featuring innovative design and architectural solutions, which can help solve more specific and unique building access issues.
Compliant with BS8300 and made using high quality stainless steel, the Hospital Lever Handle from ASSA’s Ruko-Line range is designed for use within healthcare buildings, specifically in surgical and operating areas. The standard return to door lever on ASSA’s Hospital Lever Handle, features a vertical section, which means the main handle is higher than the spindle. This allows surgeons and other members of hospital staff to easily operate the handle with their elbow, gaining access to sanitised areas.
ASSA’s Brighthandle range provides an innovative concept for door handle design. Created by acclaimed designer Alexander Lervik, the stylish yet functional handles use coloured light on the lever handle to display the locked or unlocked door status.
Available in three attractive lighting and handle designs in either battery or mains powered versions, Brighthandle helps to aid pathfinding within residential and commercial buildings, whilst providing a clear indicator for those with visual impairments.
In addition to functional solutions, ASSA also supplies design-led handles, ideal for leisure and recreational applications, as well as modern housing developments or commercial buildings. These handles enable specifiers to create an attractive finish throughout the building, without compromising on functionality or quality, as all handles are manufactured using high-grade stainless steel and come with complementary accessories.
The ScanFlex series consists of classic and elegant styles, influenced by timeless Scandinavian design, whilst the Ruko-Line :DO:RE:MI: and Holgaard handles feature contemporary shapes and streamlined finishes.
A final distinctive offering from ASSA, are its double action handles, which permit ‘flip-up’ operation. Available in both the ASSA Distinction and Brighthandle ranges, the sets incorporate an external return lever handle and an internal flip-up handle, as well as an indicator rose. Helping building owners to meet with the requirements set out in BS8300, the handles allow opening from the outside via the indicator rose in the case of an emergency. This feature makes the accessory set an ideal product for care homes or other healthcare applications.
Karen Pearce, Product Manager for ASSA, said:
“ASSA has always offered a comprehensive door furniture range, but specifiers may not be aware of some of the more unique features and designs offered by our door furniture handles. ASSA has the ability to supply products for virtually every commercial and public sector application, but more than that we have addressed some of the more specific building design and access issues faced by specifiers and building owners, developing handle solutions to overcome these.”
