A touch of style

VBH has expanded the greenteQ Coastline range of stainless steel pull handles with the addition of two new Oval profile designs.

The new Oval products are said to offer an attractive alternative to the standard circular profile pulls that are reported to be popular on contemporary entrance doors.

VBH advises that Oval pulls are manufactured from hard wearing grade 304 austenitic brushed stainless steel and, as with all the products in the Coastline range, benefit from VBH’s 25 Year Coastline guarantee.

There are straight and offset options. As its name suggests, the offset version’s bar is mounted on angled legs to offset the pull handle by 72mm from the fixing points.

VBH product manager for doors, Adrian Gale, said: “Members of our greenteQ development team presented a number of proposed designs to a sample set of fabrication and installation companies last year.

“The overwhelming opinion was that, whilst they wanted something different to the traditional tube, they still preferred a pull that had a soft feel and appearance. The new bars certainly fit that bill as the oval tube is very comfortable to hold, and looks very stylish. Initial sales figures are backing that up.”

The pulls are available in four lengths and can be fitted on their own or back to back.
