UPVC Double Glazing Hoppe Birmingham Sprung Door Handle Gold
Hoppe Birmingham Sprung Door Handle Pair
The Hoppe Birmingham sprung door handle is fully reversible, The handle has a simple and contemporary design with some sculpted detail, without being too elaborate or fussy. The back of the lever grip is sculptured to fit your hand very nicely and allows for a comfortable and ergonomic operation.
Hoppe Birmingham's lever and backplate are stainless steel for added strength. The Birmingham series are very similar to the Atlanta range, offering excellent value for money.
The handle levers are sprung, solving the problem of a sagging door handle not returning to the horizontal position when not in use. This handle comes with one spring cassete to be used on the inside handle. Although there is only one spring cassette it will keep both internal and external levers sprung.
The spring cassette on this handle is made up of three springs instead of the traditional two springs. This gives it the ability to spring both sides of the handle with just one cassette and also gives it a longer lifespan.

There are only two measurements which are required to ensure full working operation of your new uPVC door handle. The first one being what is known as the PZ measurement. This measurement is the distance from the centre of the key hole the to centre of the handle lever or spindle hole. This is measurement B on the technical diagram.
The second measurement is the distance between the two fixing points which are the screw holes on the uPVC door handles backplate. This is measurement F on the technical diagram.
If the above two measurements match up then the door handle will fit and operate perfectly. All other measurements on the door handle are mainly aethetics and won't affect fitting or operation if they're different.
I ordered two sets of these handles to replace the worn door handles (front and back UPVC doors), and they fitted perfectly. They came with the two long fixing screws so I made sure the screw heads were fitted internally for security purposes. Sturdy spring loaded mechanism insert ensures the handle goes back to correct horizontal position. Pleased with my purchase.
