A recessed handle is used for operating and carrying devices and fittings such as handles of machinery and doors, especially those that are embedded in the device or fixture side and are used by forming a burr.
In particular, it refers to a handle that is embedded in the side of a device or fixture and forms a sagging. Recessed handles generally have a low load-bearing capacity, so care must be taken when using a recessed handle as a transport handle.
Recessed handles are used for attaching a handle to installed equipment and fixtures to facilitate operation and transportation. Features of fully recessed handles include the fact that they are usually inset and do not protrude from the door, thus contributing to space savings, and they are often used where there is little space available for installation. Folding handles, in which the handle is stored in the recessed base and lifted up for use, are also a type of recessed handles and are used as handles for wall and floor storage.
Since handles are used not only for doors but also for handles for carrying and pushing and pulling, they are machine element parts installed in machinery, drawers, fixtures, and all other places. In particular, recessed handles are often used as handles for lifting, and for doors that open and close by pulling, such as drawers and slides.
The size of handles, including recessed handles, is limited to some extent by the installation location, but there are a wide variety of other selection options, including material, shape, and additional features, such as locking mechanisms. Recessed handles can be made of a wide range of materials, including metals such as aluminum, steel, and stainless steel, as well as plastics and other resins, and are selected according to their visual appearance and the required load capacity. When used as handles for drawers and cupboards, plastic products are often used because they are inexpensive and easy to process, since they require little load-bearing capacity. When recessed handles are used as handles for carrying, not only the material but also the shape is an important selection factor. Since ordinary recessed handles are installed embedded in the object, the size of the handle is limited to a certain extent, and the shape is not suitable for transporting heavy objects. Therefore, a foldable handle with a handle folded into the recessed handle part is used to secure the handle size.
Products with various functions are also available, such as products with a locking mechanism to prevent drawers from popping out, and products with an antibacterial function to prevent infection and contamination in areas shared by multiple people.
