Do I need a left or a right side handle?

We are often asked how we determine which handle or latch is "left side" and which is "right side" as it tends to be different from one company to the next.

Our system is in fact very easy to use and works around which side of the door the latch or handle will physically be fixed to. The easiest way to determine this is to have a look at which side your hinges are on. If for example, your door has the hinges on the left then you will require a right side handle or latch.If your hinges are on the right, you will require a left side handle or latch.

 NB: This applies to all door and window furniture across our website where the product is stated as being left or right sided.
