Supa Safety Stainless Steel

Mila’s Supa stainless steel door hardware range has expanded with the launch of the Supa Safety handle, which meets the accessibility requirements of Doc M and the Lifetime Homes Initiative.

The Supa Safety handle has an extended lever which is easier to grip than the standard Supa lever even with a closed fist and it sits 45mm from the face of the door in line with BS8300 referenced in the building regulations.

Like the rest of the Supa range, the new handle is also available in polished or brushed stainless and polished PVD gold finish, making it is easy to achieve the visual contrast between the hardware and the door which is an integral part of document M.


 “We’ve long had document M compliant handles in our ProLinea zinc hardware range but increasingly customers now just want every option in stainless steel.”

Stainless all over

“The numbers speak for themselves. Almost 50% of all the door hardware we sell is in stainless steel and we’ve seen sales almost treble since 2019,” says Mila’s Gyde. “Demand is such that we’re filling in any perceived gaps in our range as quickly as we can, so that all our customers can make the switch regardless of the type, style or application of the finished door.”



Gyde adds: “The move towards stainless steel is hardly surprising, when you consider that Mila offers a 25-year guarantee on both the finish and mechanical operation of the Supa range. For fabricators and installers, that’s a powerful sales tool, as well as providing peace of mind that they will not be faced with costly remedials down the line.”
