How to Measure Upvc Door Handles

How to Measure Upvc Door Handles

Posted by Nathan on 27th Aug 2021

Measuring uPVC door handles is quite straight forward and it's essential you get it right to ensure your new door handle will fit perfectly. There are two key measurements you need to get right when measuring your door handle, let's go through the steps on how to do this below.

How to Measure the PZ Centres

The first measurement you will need to take is called the PZ. This measurement is what aligns the door handle to the internal door lock mechanism inside your door. To measure the PZ you simply need to measure from the centre of the handle lever (or centre of the square spindle hole) to the centre of the circular part of the key hole.

Please see the below diagram for further assistance.

How to Measure the Backplate Fixing Centres

The second measurement you need to take is the backplate fixing centres. This measurement is the distance between the centre of the two fixing holes found on your door handle. 

Please see the below diagram for further assistance.
