Offset Door Pulls... More than just for sliding doors

Did you know that the Italian word for 'beside' is Allato? Our Allato handle is sitting a bit off to the side from where it normally would. The Manico Me Curva door pulls takes a more gentle approach with soft corners and a more fluid visual.

Offset door pulls offer numerous benefits from both a design perspective and practicality, particularly concerning key access and their suitability for sliding doors. Let's delve into these advantages:

  1. Design Perspective: a. Unique Aesthetics: Offset door pulls add a distinctive and visually appealing element to door design. Placed off-centre, they create a focal point that captures attention and elevates the overall aesthetic of the door and surrounding space. Offset door pulls such as the ALLATO or CURVA can harmonise with architectural styles, serving as complementary design elements. They can accentuate specific architectural details or create a cohesive look when combined with other design elements.

  2. Practicality for Key Access: a. Secure Locking Mechanism: Offset door pulls can accommodate key access by incorporating a lock cylinder or keyhole near the handle. This ensures the door remains secure while allowing convenient key usage. b. Easy Identification: Placing the key access near the offset handle simplifies the identification of the locking mechanism. Users can quickly locate and engage the key without confusion or fumbling, enhancing usability.

  3. Suitability for Sliding Doors: a. Space Optimisation: Offset door pulls work exceptionally well with sliding doors, maximising space utilisation. By positioning the handle off to the side, they prevent interference with other objects or furniture nearby, ensuring smooth operation. b. Ergonomic Benefits: The off-centre placement of offset door pulls on sliding doors facilitates ergonomic use. It enables a natural and comfortable grip, making it easier to slide the door open or closed. c. Seamless Integration: Offset door pulls bring elegance and functionality to sliding doors, enhancing their visual appeal. Whether it's a glass sliding door or a barn-style sliding door, the handles blend seamlessly with the door design, creating a cohesive and stylish look.

Overall, offset door pulls combine design innovation with practicality. They enhance the aesthetic appeal of doors, offer convenient key access, optimise space utilisation, and seamlessly integrate with sliding doors. Whether you prioritise visual impact, functionality, or a combination of both, offset door pulls provide an excellent solution for both design enthusiasts and those seeking practical door hardware.
