Handle design: T, L and pull handles

Written by: Essentra Components Ltd | Published:

T Handles and L Handles are named after their shapes. Both are examples of ergonomics in design, providing ample room for hand gripping for easy actuation. Want to know more and when to use these?

A closer look at T and L handles

T Handle is a great choice for applications that are accessed often, which means opening and closing the panel door should be quick and hassle free. This is what a cam lock latch with a T Handle gives you. A T Handle cam latch opens and closes with a fast quarter-turn motion for easy access. It’s especially suited for electrical panels, metal doors and machine covers.

An L Handle cam latch is also easy to use. You simply turn the handle, activating the mechanism. A cam rotates on the inside of the handle, opening the access panel or door. This simple action alleviates stress to joints. These work particularly well as industrial cabinet handles. If space is limited and won’t comfortably fit a T Handle, an L Handle can do the job and still give you an ergonomic grip.
