The CHASE range of door handles are Artitec's DDA style 'return to door' lever handles, perfect in design for DDA requirements, due to their ease of use on the handle itsself, and suitability for doors between 38 and 47mm thick.
They are sprung handles, built to take a lot of prolonged heavy use, so coupled with the return to door style, these are ideal for commercial premesis such as hospitals, surgeries, schools, and offices. But of course these can be used in the home too, if you require functional return to door handles that are going to last.
As mentioned, these are incredibly hard wearing handles, supported fully by their bolt-through fixings, providing that your lock or latch in the door will cater for bolt-through fixings, but if not, don't worry - you can of course surface-mount them too! Both types of fixings are included for bolt-through and surface-screw fitting.
Made from Grade 304 Stainless Steel, these are corrosion resistant and look stunning in their brushed stainless effect.
These accept a standard 8mm spindle (also supplied with the handles), which are secured into the handles via a discreet grub screw.

Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in watch one of our product review videos.
Now we're putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see that product that we have to offer in hopefully a little bit more detail.
Today I want to show you a range of lever handles that we have. Lever handles on back plates, so to speak. They're Artitec range of handles, and they're called the Chase style of particular handle. It's a standard return-to-door stainless steel type of handle that's quite common these days. But these do actually comply to the EN 1906 standards.
One of the distinct advantages of this particular type of handle set-up is that the face plates here, the actual plate that goes over here and tidies up the handle once it's all fixed onto the door, it has the ability to have different settings here to allow for different style of cylinders and so forth. So what that means is, is that if you've got a set of ware, perhaps you've got a DIN [SP] series lock case, or you've got a traditional style lock case, or small one that's got slightly different centres, and I'll explain that to you in a second, then you can still use this particular handle. And then you can have a different face plate then to suit the application.
This particular one we have here is the standard blank face plate, and that would then sit on there like that, and therefore that's actually what you see here. Exceptionally good quality these handles are, so well worth the investment.
Now on the back here, as you can see, you've got fixings here. These are the holes in which you would pop the screw fixings through. So if I was to pop that off there, just a second, on here now, on this particular one here, as you can see, you've got three hole fixings here that allows you then to be able to bolt through the actual handle through the lock, etc., to allow you then to fix the two together.
Now that stands for good strong secure fixings. If you don't have the ability to bolt through because of the type of handle that you have, it also comes with screw fixings to allow you to surface screw then to the timber itself, as well. There's also some grub screws in there as well that allows you then to be able to, in here then, be able to screw in the grub screw to hold the spindle into place.
But going back to talking to you about the actual different back sets, this template card here gives you the ability here, if I was to put that up there like that, it gives you the ability there to, if you can see centres there, the 72 centres, 95 centres, and there's also the 55 millimetre centres, sorry, 56 millimetres centres, they're all pretty universal standard, etc. in the industry, which means therefore then, this particular handle, by changing its face plate, allows you to be able to use all of those different type of locks and all of those different type of centres on this particular set up. So that's incredibly interesting there if this is what you're looking for.
And it might be that you have handles or locks of all different ilk around the property. You can actually choose the same style.
So, there you go, guys. It's just one of the products that we have on our website. I'll quickly get some quick little measurements here for you now, just to give you some sort of idea of the overall. So the overall size of the actual handle itself, I can get the measurement from there to there, it's going pushing out around about the 218 millimetres or 217 millimetres length overall. The width of the handle there is, by the time you put the fixing plate on as well, is going to be around about 38 millimetres. As we've talked about the PZs, it's going to be different depending on the particular application.
The size of the actual handle goes from the centre of the actual handle to the outside there, is about 130 millimetres. I'm sure you could just see that there just to give you some sort of idea there in regards to its projection. This particular style of handle is what we would call in the industry a return-to-door, so therefore then it can be used on DDA applications and so forth. But as you can see, a beautifully satin stainless steel finish there.
So there you go, guys. If you need a bit more information on this or any of the products that we have, by all means, pop us over an email, use the live chat that we have, or simply give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you and, more importantly, we'd love to see you as one of our customers. So from me, Darrel, and all of us at the team, thanks for taking the time. And I hope to catch up to you real soon. Take care now. Bye, bye.
