The fluid design of the Morphic door handle is increasingly being specified for yachts and oceanic projects in a highly polished finish. The mirror like finish compliments these watery locations and as it is cast in stainless steel it has excellent rust resistant properties. The physical durability of stainless steel also makes it ideal for high traffic public areas which are the norm in the hospitality industry. We have recently completed 12 sets of our Serpentine handle for a new yacht designed by SMC a London based group that leads the field in maritime design.
Working closely with the projects specifiers, DEKO Ocean of Denmark, we made necessary modifications to ensure that the handles would work for the projects 3” deep aluminum fire doors.
Coincidentally the Morphic style chosen for SMC’s project is one that owes its inspiration to marine life forms and in particular to the lace like appearance of coral and to the tentacles of squid and octopi. Despite its oceanic origins we named this piece “Serpentine” to more immediately convey its shape and to set it apart from other pieces in the series.
The Serpentine handle measures 31”H by 4”W ( 812mm x 100mm) and is suitable for most wood, glass and stone doors. The handle is mounted over a small concealed mounting bracket that is attached to the door. Once the bracket is firmly in place the Serpentine handle then clips over the bracket where it is held in place by Allen screws on either side of the handles tips.
