With the same form and function as a round bar handle, the inside of the grab handle is easier to operate than the Pinch Grip, but still offers high ligature resistance.  It has a low projection and smooth curvature to minimise the risk of self-harm.  

Available on a flat or recessed back-plate.

Technical details

The Grab handle is designed to work with two different back-plates – either the 'A' plate (for simple surface mounting in new or retro-fit applications) or the 'F' plate (which allows the handle to mounted on a recessed dish to provide additional space behind the handle).

The dimensions are:

  • 731A: 205 x 90 x 3mm
  • 731F: 205 x 106 x 3mm


Standard SSS finish plates are suitable for internal use only, for external use please request Service Condition 5 when ordering.  This does not incur additional cost, only an extended lead time.

Testing information

All our anti-ligature handles are independently tested using the Door & Hardware Federation specification – TS001 –for classifying fixed and load-release devices.

All our handles pass at the highest level in their respective categories.  The testing is rigorous, measurable and repeatable – making it a reliable part of your product assessment process.

We’ve proved that our fixed door hardware won’t support ligature attachments with a 0.475kg load on a 0.5mm ligature.

The Grab handle has been tested and certified to a A4 rating – the highest level
