CHDL Cranked Handle

The MICO High Performance Lever Handle Range is eminently suitable for heavy duty, high frequency locking system applications. Primarily designed for use with MICO single and multipoint high security locks our sprung handle sets are manufactured from solid, corrosion resistant Grade 316 stainless steel material and supplied in an aesthetically pleasing brushed finish.

Conventionally, the handle section is attached to the rose via a circlip. However, this method of fastening is prone to premature failure when lever handles are subjected to high frequency usage on heavy doorsets. Tindall engineers have addressed this weak point by designing out the circlip, resulting in a robust lever handle assembly, ideally suited for door leaves weighing up to 200kgs.

The MICO high performance lever handle range has been fully tested and certified in conjunction with our high security locking systems to BS EN 179: 2008. This standard includes durability testing to 200,000 cycles together with separate abuse resistance force testing. To verify their longevity, the handles have also been subjected to additional endurance testing to in excess of 1 million cycles.

Due to being manufactured from high quality Grade 316 stainless steel, the lever handles have attained a Very High Corrosion Resistance Grade 4 classification when tested in accordance with BS EN 1670:2007.

The standard heavy duty lever handle design also meets the dimensional requirement guidelines contained within BS8300:2009 which form part of Approved Document M (Access to and use of buildings) within The Building Regulations. Whilst the alternative cranked heavy duty handle has been devised to offer an ergonomic and more user friendly operation facilitating full handle rotation.
