1) “G” and “T” type door pull design identifications:
“G” is normally a straight leg handle
“T” is normally an offset leg handle
Originally type “G” door pulls were designed for glass door application and “T” type were designed for frame/flush door applications. However, with the correct mounting hardware some “T” design pulls will function on glass door applications, while all “G” design pulls will function, in principle, on frame/flush door applications. Consult with your Elmes sales representative or customer service personnel for door pull design interchangeability.
2) Required general product information to properly specify an ELMES door handle design.
Design number, material requirement and finish detail.
T = Design Identification
6010 = Model number
01 = Material requirement
001 = Finish Detail

ELMES CUSTOM DOOR HANDLE PARAMETERS
Elmes welcomes the opportunity to quote on any custom designs. Please submit drawings to TIC for review and pricing. Certain guidelines must be followed.
The pitch can be changed on any tubular pull given enough time and quantity. A variation in pitch specified by the customer could entail a change in E-Pitch.
The E-Pitch can be changed on any tubular pull given enough time and quantity.
The Overall length can be changed on any tubular pull given enough time and quantity.
Cast designs should be thoroughly discussed with us to ensure the design is economically feasible. Our required information includes quantity, lead time and material to be used. There is the possibility of a die and molding charge.
Pulls with custom lengths may require a modification in design to ensure adequate and safe mounting.
Most tubular designs can be ordered with different finishes than what is shown in the catalog. Please note that certain guidelines apply when specifying a custom finish on a door.
Please verify with us before changing any design either to or from brass material. No change involving brass will be accepted without prior authorization from TIC. This is due to the different bending technique required for tubular brass.
All aluminum pulls are made from either solid bar stock or tubular stock (hollow). If the pull diameter is equal to or greater than 27mm (1.062”) the pull is made from solid bar stock. If the pull is less than 27mm (1.062”), it’s made from tubular stock (hollow).
Certain materials weather better than others. If weathering is a major concern, then the following rule of thumb should apply: In the ranking of most durable to least is Unicera, Stainless Steel, Anodized Aluminum and Brass. Please be aware the protective coating on brass wears off. This finish will show tarnish without proper maintenance. Please consult with us for weathering protection for the following; ceramic, uniwood, blackwood, leather trim and any pull using a spring design.
Certain material will withstand exposure to abnormal heat or cold better than others. Please consult with us when requesting specialized applications such as saunas, Turkish baths or refrigerated areas. We would need to obtain the temperature and humidity conditions to specify the proper material and finish.
