How to Measure a UPVC Door Handle
For upvc door handles, the crucial measurement is the PZ of the door handles. The PZ of the upvc door handles has to be the same as the PZ of the mechanism. Also make sure the new upvc door handle will cover the old screw holes in the door. If new screw holes need drilling make sure the lock inside the door will not be damaged.
UPVC Door Handle Dimensions
These are the measurements used in this section:
A Also known as PZ - the distance from the spindle hole to the centre of the key hole. This measurement is crucial.
B Distance between the centre of the top screw and the centre of the bottom screw.
C Overall length of the back plate
D Distance between the centre of the key hole and the centre of the bottom screw
E Width of the backplate
F Width of the spindle
