How to Measure UPVC Door Handles


How to Measure UPVC Door Handles



Knowing how to measure a UPVC Door Handle is essential if you require a replacement for your existing one.
There are several different sized door handles on the market today, and it is not a simple “choose the Door Handle design you like the best” method – unfortunately!



So how DO you measure UPVC Door Handles?

Well it is pretty straight forward as explained below:

Question: - Is the Top Screw above or below the UPVC Door Handle?

If the top screw is below the door handle, then it is really simple – Top Screw handles are all very much the same dimensions!

If the top screw is above the door handle, then you really still need to know how to measure your UPVC Door Handle correctly.

How to measure your UPVC Door Handle

There are 3 measurements you require, A, B, and C as shown in the diagram below:


  • ·         Measurement A (also known as the PZ measurement), is taken from you center of the handle, to the center of the lock.
  • ·         Measurement B is the distance from the Top Screw, to the Bottom Screw.
  • ·         Measurement C isn’t the most vital measurement, as it is simply the length of the handle. However, if you wish to cover the area of your old UPVC Door Handle, then you will need this!

Next, you need to identify if you need a Lever Lever, or a Lever Pad Door Handle.

·         Note: The PAD design is the shorter handle, and is usually found on the outside door to help with security. (See Image at top of page)

And that is that! So now you know how to measure your UPVC Door Handles, please browse NW Window Repairs selection of recommended door handles which are available to buy from Amazon .
