Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products has a new L-handle (also known as a lever handle) and latch assembly specifically designed for trash chute and linen chute doors. Each L-handle assembly features a handle, V-spindle, and a tubular latch which has a spring loaded bolt. The assembly acts like a slam-action latch which makes it perfectly suited for use on self-closing doors. Our L-handle was designed for both comfort and longevity; it has a comfortable grip and a polished chrome plated finish. We offer both key-locking and non-locking L-handles.
Most trash and linen chute doors are fitted with T-handles but SPEP’s L-handle assembly makes a chute door easier to open. Thus, our assembly is ideal as a replacement for chute door T-handles, complying with ADA standards.
