A gripping story that’s none too short
Global brand from the eastern Westphalian sticks
The FSB acronym is a byword the world over for visually and functionally top-quality system solutions for doors and windows – and a lot more besides. The specialist expertise we have amassed in over 135 years in business has, however, given rise to more than “just” premium door handles. Another reason architects and builders’ clients favour products from Brakel is that we have an advanced understanding of the requirements of modern Civic/Commercial construction. Everything that has anything at all to do with handle culture in built spaces - be it classic hardware, our barrier-free ErgoSystem® or electronic access management - is catered to from a single source.
Door and window hardware
Your hand tool for architectureIn our view, decisions for or against a given door handle model always need to be taken bearing the surrounding architecture in mind. A space’s idiom, after all, articulates itself in compressed form in a handle’s design. The FSB product range includes designs for all forms of contemporary and period architecture.
FSB places a product range in clients’ and architects’ hands whose single-minded yet multi-stranded design philosophy makes it utterly distinctive in terms of form, material and function. Each door lever has a quite different set of impressive credentials, offering its services both to the hand and to the surrounding architecture in its own inimitable way. At the same time, it is also integral to a coordinated collection that also includes glass-door hardware, lever handles for frame doors, knobs and window handles.
The FSB plug-in handle: Minimalism for Windows What a difference less can make! With its radically pared-down rose, the FSB plug-in handle is ideal for any window profile – whether timber or metal. There is nothing reductionist about the range of variants available, though: awaiting assembly are 37 different handle designs in Aluminium, Stainless Steel, Brass and Bronze.
The FSB plug-in handle for doors is ideal for use in select housing projects and, with the applicable certification pending, is equally suitable for ambitious Civic & Commercial schemes. The formal and functional qualities of FSB’s newplug-in handle come into their own wherever, in keeping with the adage “less is more”, particular store is set by good design and
unobtrusive elegance. Its rose measures just 29 mm across and 2 mm from top to bottom, a veritable feat of minimalism.
In typically matter-of-fact manner, the Brakel firm uses the term “Blasted Aluminium Colour Anodised” to describe what it brought to the production stage following lengthy development and manufacturing tests: anodised colours in the form of satin matt aluminium finishes blasted with fine shot whose inimitable sheen and pleasant haptic quality lend them an allure of a kind never before seen.
