Tiger Design for Illuminated Door Handle latest piece from Martin Pierce
The new Tiger Illuminated Door Handle has now been released into the wild or at least that is how we sometimes feel about the internet. We have in previous posts explained how the pattern was created with old world skills using a scroll saw and aluminum sheet to create a durable pattern for lost wax casting. We have now completed our first stainless steel castings and using energy efficient LED strip lights have created a color changing and single color illuminated Tiger door handle.
As is the case with all of illuminated door pulls, the Tiger panel is directly wired with 22 gauge fine wires that are fed through the door frame into the decorative door panel. The power is typically delivered to the door through an electric hinge and then conveyed to the handle through a low gauge harness that comes with the fixture and is ready for connection to a class 2 power supply.
The Tiger door pull is UL listed and is lit with a flexible weatherproof strip and encased in stainless steel which is corrosion resistant and durable.
Tiger is the fourth piece in our collection of illuminated door handles which include Fish, Coral, and Morphic themes.
Work is continuing on the Hedgerow new tree handles but as with any new design of this size and complexity there have been quite a few challenges to resolve and as we are now incorporating LED lights and have a left and right facing handle we have had a lot to think through.
Other illuminated designs are taking shape in Martin’s sketch book so stay in touch to see these as they evolve.
