Gensler, the global architecture and design firm, has collaborated with PBA on a new collection of millwork pulls. Sculpted for one hand opening and closing with no pinching, wrist twisting, or simultaneous hand and finger manipulation required, each pull has a minimum opening width of 4” and a minimum opening depth of 1” (based on typical door/drawer dimensions).
Originally offered and still available in top-grade stainless steel, Everyone Millwork Pulls are now better than ever with two new options:
- ANTI-MICROBIAL COATING (AMC). An innovative finish containing special additives that make the surface protected from bacteria an microorganisms. The tests show that on untreated surfaces the microbes and bacteria can easily proliferate, while on surfaces with AMC powder coating the bacterial proliferation is practically zeroed.
- COPPER PLATING. Copper offers an antimicrobial defense against a range of pathogens including MRSA, S. AUREUS (A.K.A. STAPH), and E. COLI.
All pulls in the collection were designed to comply with the ADA and similar accessibility requirements, however final interpretation of accessibility compliance is the responsibility of the specifier and should be determined relative to specific project conditions and local codes.
The collection of millwork pulls designed by Gensler for pba competed as finalist for the selection for the 2019 IDEA award.
The International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) is one of the longest running and most prestigious design awards programs in existence. Each year, thousands of entries are submitted by design teams across the globe, making idea one of the largest and most widely anticipated annual awards programs in the world. Idea set the benchmark for what a design award represents and has endured to become a career-defining catalyst for those talented enough to win.
