1) “G” and “T” type door pull design identifications:
  “G” is normally a straight leg handle
  “T” is normally an offset leg handle
  Originally type “G” door pulls were designed for glass door application and “T” type were designed for frame/flush door applications. However, with the correct mounting hardware some “T” design pulls will function on glass door applications, while all “G” design pulls will function, in principle, on frame/flush door applications. Consult with your Elmes sales representative or customer service personnel for door pull design interchangeability.
2) Required general product information to properly specify an ELMES door handle design.
  a) Design number, material requirement and finish detail.
    Example: T6010-01-001
  T = Design Identification

  01 = Material requirement
  001 = Finish Detail
