Elesa's handwheel safety feature - fold away handles

Elesa's handwheel safety feature - fold away handles Elesa's fold away handle feature on solid and spoked handwheels - and on crank handles - is an attractive and practical aspect of their standard machine components. Fold away handles are frequently required in spaces where they would otherwise be a safety hazard, e.g. where the wheel is motor driven or where a protruding handle may catch clothing in passing by the equipment. By virtue of folding the handle itself into the body of the wheel, the problem is eliminated while retaining convenience and ease of use.

Solid handwheels such as the ESW, VDS, VDT and VDO all have +IR options, as do the VRTP, ETW, GN322.3 and VR.FP versions.

Elesa have also managed to incorporate a fold away handle into the EMW monospoke handwheel and the MT crank handle. Revolving handles in resilient technopolymer or solid Duroplast are available to match the handwheel design.
