The Aeros door handle was originally designed for use in the Queen’s Stand at Epsom racecourse. Its design refers to the elegant, splayed form of yachts, helicopters and Concorde. Unusually for lever design, Aeros provides an ‘active’ position for the thumb as well as the palm by extending the lever beyond the rocker point. The handle was the first of a series of aluminium and stainless steel products designed by Richard Horden and later versions are in development.
