C.R. Laurence Introduces New Line of Locking Ladder Pulls with A.D.A. Compliant Features

CRL engineers five new Locking Ladder Pulls with design characteristics that allow for improved operation for individuals with disabilities.

C.R. Laurence prides itself on engineering quality architectural solutions that aid architects, contractors, and installers create buildings that combine aesthetics with real world functionality.  CRL understands the importance of effective operation for the end user, including individuals protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act (A.D.A.).

C.R. Laurence's new line of Locking Ladder Pulls for "all-glass" entrances takes the company's trusted design and adds additional features that align with the A.D.A.'s requirements for more specialized and inclusive openings. The alloy 316 stainless steel Locking Ladder Pull product line features a smaller diameter housing that gives them a contemporary minimalist aesthetic while providing enhanced, specially designed A.D.A. compliant thumb-turn mechanisms.

The new designs feature fully concealed deadbolts complete with 6-pin or 7-pin rim-type cylinders that are designed for easy re-keying or maintenance when necessary. The Locking Ladder Pulls are also designed to eliminate any bending or kneeling down to lock or unlock doors. They are readily available for immediate shipment in 48, 60, 72, and 84 inch sizes to meet strict architectural project deadlines. Custom sizes up to 120 inches and/or fully compliant configurations are also available for special order.

"As architects take new approaches to designing commercial buildings to be more accessible, CRL is manufacturing new quality hardware that meets these specific project and end user needs," says Al Eini, C.R. Laurence Brand Manager for Commercial Hardware. "From the strategic placement of the locking mechanisms, to convenient maintenance features, and their minimalist, modern designs, our new Locking Ladder Pulls enhance overall function while maintaining striking aesthetics."

Staying with CRL's commitment to maintaining the industry's highest standards, the new line of Locking Ladder Pulls are thoroughly tested in the company's ISO 9001:2008 certified facilities to 100,000 cycles to ensure long-term durability and operation. To learn more, visit crlaurence.com.
