ASSA ABLOY Australia would like to announce an upgrade of the Lockwood Brass 59 lever in accordance with Australian Standard AS AS1428.1 Design for access and mobility. Part 1: General requirements for access - New building work.

Lever 59

Under this standard it is a requirement that the finger clearance on a lever or handle when used on the continuous accessible path is between 35mm and 45mm when measured from the centre of the grip section.

The continuous accessible path of travel is defined as an uninterrupted path of travel to, into or within a building providing access to all accessible facilities. Effective immediately, all Lockwood Furniture featuring the 59 lever can be used in these applications.

Please note that to ensure the 59 lever complies with the finger clearance requirement of this standard two different variations of this lever will be supplied for use on Lockwood Artefact and Brass Door Furniture respectively as shown below.
