NEW HAVEN, CT, July 14, 2009 – SARGENT Manufacturing Company (www.sargentlock.com), a market leader in architectural hardware, exit devices, electronic access control locks, cylindrical and mortise locks, has expanded its Studio Collection line with the introduction of seven elegant and expressive architectural levers. These new additions provide a solution for areas requiring return-to-door levers, as well as offer architects and designers more style options to meet their design needs.
Return-to-door levers are required in some jurisdictions to prevent clothing from being caught on the door while exiting the building during an emergency. They also help meet accessibility guidelines by stopping the hand from slipping off the end of the lever.
These new members of SARGENT’s Studio Collection are not only ideal for meeting local requirements, they continue SARGENT’s history of manufacturing aesthetically pleasing, high-quality solutions that can withstand the rigors of commercial applications.
Studio Collection levers provide architects and designers with a myriad of design choices, providing a design continuum throughout a facility and across all types of door hardware, including exit devices, mortise and cylindrical locks and access control locks. With 30 distinctive lever designs in 15 finishes, it is easy to enhance the look of virtually any opening.
