£19.33 £16.11 Pair
Luca polished brass curved lever handle on a plain bathroom backplate, part of our value for money range. Used on doors that have a mortice bathroom lock which is operated by rotating the turn button or coin release on the handles located on either face of the door. The backplate measures 169x42mm and this set is supplied complete with connecting spindles and fixing screws.
Bathroom locking handles are used with a bathroom mortice lock, which is usually 2.1/2in (64mm) or 3in (75mm) wide and consists of a latch and a deadbolt. The bathroom lock is mortised into the edge of the door whereas the handles are fitted to either side of the door and are connected by a spindle located in the back of the levers. When the levers are pressed, the spindle rotates and operates the latch allowing the door to open. On the handle fitted to the inside of the door there is a button which when turned, operates the deadbolt on the bathroom mortice lock. On the handle fitted to the outside of the door there is an emergency release slot, usually operated by a coin or screwdriver, which can be used to unlock the door in an emergency. The turn button and the emergency release are connected by use of a smaller spindle, which passes through the bathroom lock. The handles are supplied complete with both spindles and fixing screws, but not with the lock, which needs to be purchased as a separate item, and is normally specified to have a matching finish to the handles.
