AN EASY-TO-NAVIGATE ROAD MAP
TO BOTH INSPIRATION AND DESIGN ENGINEER DETAIL

MENTOR is the world’s premier manufacturer of high quality handles. Their eclectic selection includes over 50 new handles designs, offering elegant and functional solutions for any application requiring a handle.

Our Handles Micro-site details over 270 part numbers. The majority of MENTOR’s standard handles are available ex-stock and at low MOQs, all with multiple size options and configurable to custom requirements.

Stunning functional handles in many styles and materials

The handle that a designer specifies often dictates the overall aesthetics of the final product so - as with all MENTOR components - equal importance is paid to both form and function. Each handle style oozes elegance and quality, is ergonomic and comfortable and can be configured to meet any dimensional requirements.

MENTOR’s standard of engineering and finish is truly second to none, with many variations available ex-stock including handles in black, grey or custom-coloured plastic, anodised aluminium, chromium-plated, shiny-matt stainless steel, powder-coated, etc.
