The latest development in our locking handle range is a space saving design to allow for vertical fitting. Ideal for truck doors or tool boxes, without losing the robust integrity of the original Double D handle.
The strong aluminium handle enables the operator to exert full control over the movement of what is likely to be a heavy drawer, both when opening and closing, and the locking mechanism can be installed to provide a slam-shut lock-in functionality for slide and tilt drawers, as well as a lock-in and lock-out function for conventional straight slide-out drawers when mounted under the drawer pan. The locking mechanism retracts the spring-loaded locking bolts, which slot into the slam-shut lock blocks integrally fixed to our award-winning slide and tilt front bracket.
The handle is manufactured from cast aluminium with a specialist 7200 paint treatment designed for aerospace. The rods are supplied drilled and chamfered in 304 stainless steel. The plunger release is made from milled aluminium and not plastic like some budget locks. The housing is strong aluminium channel (not plastic!) and the internal components are moulded from strong GRP. The handle is supplied as a complete assembly, not in kit form. We own all the tooling for our handles.
The unit is generally supplied without an aluminium drawer front, and at a standard drawer width of 500, 1000, 1,500 or 2,000mm. The user would then cut the locking bolts to their own desired width, although the system can be supplied with the locking bolts pre-cut to the user's specified length.
The locks can easily be adapted for use in the fully closed and extended positions, please consult our engineers. Follow the links to buy online from stock.
