Standard executions

Pass-through holes for AISI 304 stainless steel self-tapping screws according to ISO 7050 Ø 2.9x9.5 mm, supplied (see Assembly instructions).

EPR-SH: open cavity handle without flap.

EPR-F-SH: handle with grey-black technopolymer flap, matte finish, stainless steel return spring.

Ergonomy and design

A modern design thanks to the compact shape. The internal profile of the cavity offers a safe, comfortable and ergonomic grip. The coloured screw cover improves the visibility of the handle and offers the possibility of product customization.

The flap is a unique feature for closing completely the recess and opens by simply putting the hand into.

Technical data

The lifting (F1) and pull out (F2) resistance values reported in the table are the result of the tests carried out in laboratory with handles assembled on strengthened metal sheet panels with thickness = 1.5 mm (strengthened for test purposes).


Drilling template

On panels with thickness (s) exceeding 2.5 mm, we recommend you to fit the handle following one of the here-under reported ways:

  • by two self-tapping screws in the bores "d";
  • by two countersunk head screws M3x6 after tapping the bores in the panel;
  • by two countersunk head screws M3x10 with nuts, after drilling blind holes Ø 3.2 mm.

Assembly instructions

  • Drill the handle housing according to the template dimensions.
  • Remove all drilling burrs before fitting the handle.
  • Fit the upper part of the handle into the housing (Fig. 1) and press onto the lower part until firmly in place.
  • Gently push the handle downward (Fig. 2).
  • Fit the two self-tapping screws (Fig. 3).
  • Assemble the screw cover by pressing on the lateral sides first and finally on the central part (Fig. 4).
