Handles have a powder coating. The standard color is black; however, almost any color is available. Many common colors are available from stock.
Handles can be made to conform to corporate design requirements, works standards or individual matching selectivity. Almost any color is possible when specifi ed at the time of order.
The handles for TX couplings were designed with two main aspects in mind:
- As exposed parts they should be very robust, to withstand events such as a coupling falling to the ground.
- They should be ergonomically designed so as to provide the easiest and most effi cient usage.
For most applications we recommend the standard, optimized geometry. However there are some special cases where aspects such as limited operating space or diffi cult access mean that alternative designs may be preferred. These are shown on the following pages, listed by coupling diameter.
Whereas couplings of DN 50/2“ (70mm) and above are delivered with handles as standard, for DN 25/1“ (56mm) couplings no handle is fi tted as standard, but there is the option of specifying it as an optional extra.
