DOOR HANDLE MEASURING & IDENTIFYING GUIDE

The following guide can be used to help identify or correctly measure your UPVC/Composite Door Handle. 

To ensure you buy the correct size door handle, it is vital that you know the correct measurements. There are two critical dimensions when measuring your door handle – the PZ Dimension and the Screw to Screw Dimension. 

a. THE PZ DIMENSION
    Measured from the centre of the spindle (follower) hole to the centre of the euro cyclinder hole. 

b. SCREW TO SCREW (FIXING CENTRES)
    Measured from the centre of the top fixing screw hole to the centre of the bottom fixing screw. 

c. TOP SCREW TO SPINDLE
     Measured from the centre of the top screw hole to the centre of the spindle (follower) hole. 

d. OVERALL BACK PLATE
     The length of the back plate.

What are the 2 critical dimensions? 

 

  1. THE PZ DIMENSION

  2. THE ‘BACK SET’ DIMENSION

    Measured from the front of the lock face plate to the centre of the spindle (follower) hole. 

 

EURO CYLINDER MEASURING & IDENTIFYING GUIDE

In order to correctly measure a Euro Cylinder there a two sizes that you require, the internal size and the external size.

FRICTION HINGE MEASURING GUIDE

Our 3 step guide below will help you choose exactly the correct hinge for your window… 

  1. HANG TYPE

    Is your window Top Hung or Side Hung? 

  2. HINGE LENGTH

    Measured to the closest inch e.g. 12″

  3. STACK HEIGHT

    13mm or 17mm (Not able to measure your stack height? Read below…)

NOT ABLE TO MEASURE YOUR STACK HEIGHT? 

If you are unable to measure the stack height of the hinge then you can purchase some stack packer caps. The caps simply clip on the hinge and convert the hinge from a 13mm stack to a 17mm stack. We recommend fitting 3 packers per hinge (so a pair of hinges would require 6 packer caps).
