greenteQ Alpha Slim is a handle set with a narrower backplate than the norm and a low profile swept lever design. This makes it ideal for doors with slim sash profiles including aluminium bi-fold doors and slim section residential doors. Such products often require a door lock with a 28 or 30mm backset. In these cases, a ‘normal’ width backplate may clash on the outer frame when opening or closing the door, and in some instances overhang the glazing bead on the glass side.
The greenteQ Alpha slimline handle features a slim backplate, measuring just 26mm comparing to standard handles that are typically around 32mm or more. At first glance the handle looks no different to any other but this slim backset makes it ideal for slimline door profiles.
The lever itself has a low level sweep and projects from the door much less than a standard lever would. This prevents the lever clashing against the frame when the door is opened or closed. The screw pitch is identical to the standard long backplate greenteQ Alpha and Coastline door handles, so automated handle prep is not affected.
Alpha Slim is supplied complete with spring cassettes to ensure positive operation every time.
