uPVC Door Handles - Lever/Pad

Replacement offset and inline uPVC door handles for double glazed doors. Here we show upvc door handle sets with a lever on the inside and a paddle on the outside. Some pads are inline with the lever but some are off-set for key-entry. If you need handles with a lever on the outside see our Lever UPVC Door Handles

Use our Quick Check Guide To Find Your Pad UPVC Door Handles

Quick Tips & Links
  • uPVC door handles with a pad are generally offset and lock the door. Some are inline and may have split spindles.


Why is a pad handle used on a uPVC door?

These handles have some profound differences in lock functionality to the general lever type upvc door handles found on most doors. Some lever pad handles can also be inline and operate independently from each side of the door if a split inline spindle lock is present inside the door (two spindles meet in the middle of the lock).

The pad is always found on the outside of the door and is usually offset to the inner lever handle (two spindles are present). This means that the lever on the inside and the pad on the outside act independently from each other. The benefit being that when the door is closed the pad will not open the door without the key. Standard upvc door handles that have inline levers (and operate from one spindle) will open from the outside without the key unless deadlocked from the inside.

Do pad handles stop people being able to walk in through the door from the outside when closed?

Generally that will be the case. If the lever pad works off one spindle (inline) then that will not be the case. It all depends on whether the pad handle has two spindles that are offset to each other or meet in the middle of the lock (inline).

Can pad handles be used instead of an external lever?

That is sometimes possible but not for every lock. You will need to determine the correct handle to fit your door and then check to see if a pad version is available. Pad handles can work with locks that have a single spindle, offset spindles (two) or two inline spindles but it will depend which lock you have. If you don't have a split inline lock already then you can't change to this functionality but it is possible that an inline lever lock has the second spindle hole needed. You would need to dismantle the lock case from the door in this case and then find the offset handles you need. A good place to start is to use the matrix guides here: lever lever matrix; lever pad matrix

How do I replace a lever pad handle?

In order to successfully replace a lever pad handle on your door you need to ensure the screws, lever, pad and key-hole positions are in the correct place. This is important as the screws, cylinder and lever/pad spindle(s) have to pass through holes in the lock case which is inside the door. You won't be able to just pick any handle.

Measure the important sizes on the handle using this lever pad size matrix guide.

Once you have found the correct upvc door handle then you need to read the details of the handle to ensure the screws and spindle are the correct length for the thickness of the door you have. If your door thickness is outside of the quoted range for the screws and spindle then you need to order a different length at the same time as the handles. Door thicknesses vary greatly within the uPVC door market. Spindles and screws will be shown under the Related Products within the handle details page.

What is included with a lever pad upvc door handle set?

The handles are sold as a pair for the inner and outer sides of the door along with screws and spindles. The cylinder lock is not included but can be ordered separately or the existing one maintained.

Are these handles handed?

The handles we show are all photographed in the same direction but the vast majority of them can be used either way around on the door. The important thing to remember is to keep the screws on the inside and then turn the lever around to the correct direction when installing them. Those that are handed will require you to select from a drop-down box when ordering.

What is the most common failure of a lever pad door handle?

In our experience we see levers that come off the backplate and we also see 'drooping' levers.

Levers that break from the backplate are almost always caused by the spindle being too short. We recommend the door thickness and spindle lengths needed within the details of each handle and if this isn't followed and the spindle is too short the levers will weaken and come away from the backplate. The spindle is what gives the handle its strength and must be inserted into the handle lever sufficiently. This will affect your guarantee if it is not followed.

Drooping levers are a slightly different problem and can't always be blamed on the handle. A lot of upvc door handles do have springs within them and these can also be replaced most times. This is a big help but the main spring is within the lock case itself and if that deteriorates and you can't get a replacement sprung handle then you will be forced to change the lock case.

What are your door handles made from?

Lever pad handles are made for exterior use so the general engineering of the handle will be robust. We select carefully the better manufacturers from the UK and Europe who will have tested the handles and will provide guarantees. Most of the handles are either die-cast aluminium or a zinc alloy.
