what is the weight capacity?access panels are 32" x 32". Wood floor over plywood sub-straight.
Not exactly sure what the weight capacity is ... but I used two of the handles for exactly the same purpose ... for a 3ft square access cover to a crawl space. The access cover is made of 1 1/4 in plywood with a layer of Pergo flooring on top.
I used this for a 28"x48" access door which was heavy...consisted of 3/4" plywood sub-layer with 3/4" T&G hardwood nailed over that...so door was 1 1/2" thick ...very heavy...handle worked fine...I used 1 1/4" screws to attach it
The largest hatch I installed mine on was approx. 12" X 36" made of 5/4" fir over 5/8" plywood. So far so good!

Don't know what the weight is but our hatch door is similar and the handle lift is enough to crack it open so we can grab and lift the panel up. Key is making sure the screws grab into real wood so that it holds.
There is no capacity on the handle. I used these for a 2 x 2 foot section of redwood deck and they are working great. However you might consider a larger size for easier pulling
I have them on a hatch about 36x48, 2 layers if plywood plus half inch bamboo floor.very heavy, no problem
Need this for crawl space lift door. The current one allows you to only lift with two fingers. I believe this would allow for at least four fingers? What is the ring dimension?
I don't have the latch handle in front of me, as I have installed in on my boat engine hatch, which is quite heavy and large. I can fit three fingers in the ring, which has made raising the hatch much easier. The latch handle is quite sturdy and I anticipate it will last for years.
I will be buying the product again
I used the product for all kinds of installations on boats the brass ones are my favorite however I wish they made a polished stainless steel version. I do custom woodwork on boats especially decks and such so I need pools all the time there is a slight variation in the casting between these pulls but not enough to worry about
