Easy Conversion for California Apartments

CS recently supplied CL400 Magnetic handles for 500 apartments in the California College of the Arts (CCA) student housing complex in San Francisco. It was important for the building owners to have the flexibility to change the compliancy of the units in the future to meet accessibility standards without replacing the doors.

The standard units have a flush handle, while the accessible units have the ADA version. With the same door prep required, handles can simply be swapped over to achieve an accessible opening. The patented magnetic striker of this lock sits flush with the wall and supports a clean aesthetic look without any protrusion into the opening. 

It is the challenging requirements of openings like these in the student apartments, as well as progressive trends in our industry, that keep manufacturers on their toes. And it is often these challenges that inspire innovative new products that efficiently meet the most intricate details while fulfilling the intended aesthetic.
