Our decorative hardware selections are chosen from a variety of manufacturers and artisan from around the globe. These knobs and pulls range from classic to current trends available in three pricing tiers, value, signature and designer.
Based on the most popular pulls and knobs, the typical pull width is 96mm or just under four inches. Many of our pulls are ADA accessible and come in a variety of finishes.
Based on many popular value level decorative hardware choices, Signature pulls are typically five to seven inches wide that make a prominent design statement on modern cabinetry.
These premium pulls are typically over seven inches wide and reflect the high design trends of today. Additional styles and finishes may be available by special order.
ROUTED FINGER PULL
Our routed finger pull edge detail is only available on wood shaker doors and solid slab doors in face frame standard overlay construction.
The tapered routered area measures 3 ½” by ⅜” [BEECH]
*Lanz does not recommend using routed finger pulls on soft close doors and drawers due to the resistance of the hinge and guide to close adding difficulty to open. Type A units require pulls on cabinet doors and drawers.
PULLS THAT MEET ADA COMPLIANCE
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) establishes standards to ensure public spaces, including commercial buildings, are accessible to people with disabilities. The ADA requirements address both drawer height and operation of the drawer pulls. Incorporating universal design elements into your multifamily dwellings will improve function and create a comfortable environment for everyone.
According to our interpretation of the ADA standard 4.13.9, many of Lanz Cabinet’s pulls are ADA compliant. “4.13.9* Door Hardware. Handles, pulls, latches, locks, and other operating devices on accessible doors shall have a shape that is easy to grasp with one hand and does not require tight grasping, tight pinching, or twisting of the wrist to operate. Lever-operated mechanisms, push-type mechanisms, and U-shaped handles are acceptable designs…”
People with limited manual dexterity often have trouble grasping a knob or operating a latch closure. ADA requirements state the pull or handle should be easy to open with one hand, without twisting the wrist or using any tight grasping or pinching motion. The best pulls for this purpose are U-shaped, like our Wire pull.
Drawer pulls should be at a height accessible to a person in a wheelchair. In general, this means no higher than 48 inches or lower than 15 inches from the ground. If the person must reach over something that obstructs clear access to the drawer pull, the maximum height should be 44 inches.
The ADA specifies that the maximum high side-reach for a drawer pull is 54 inches. The low side reach can be no less than nine inches above the floor.
Jurisdictional code and funding requirements may affect construction.
